What Do Physicians Say?
Dr. Matteo Tretti Clementoni
"The M22 IPL can be adjusted perfectly to the skin lesion, its depth, and its diameter. It can be customized to any patient."
Dr. Tretti Clementoni
"I work with IPL primarily for rosacea, photorejuvenation, and removal of pigmented lesions. I use several passes at different settings, from the deep to the superficial in a single treatment. Patients are so happy with the results that they frequently come for other treatments as well."
Dr. Gerd Gauglitz
"M22’s IPL is perfect for the erythema of rosacea."
Dr. Gerd Kautz
"I am absolutely satisfied with the IPL results and have patients who have come for treatment for 19 years."
Dr. Gerd Kautz
"We see great results with IPL, but with Photofractional we improve pigmentation, skin texture, redness, blood vessels, pigments, and pores in only one combined session. Patients have a treatment on Friday and they go to work on Monday. "
What Is It ?
The Lumenis® Optima™ IPL Photorejuvenation Solution

The Lumenis® Optima™ IPL Photorejuvenation treatment enables your physician to offer you remarkable results on a range of skin concerns such as age and sun spots, freckles, birthmarks, rosacea and broken capillaries.

The unique Lumenis® IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology gently and effectively eliminates spots, discolorations, and unwanted blood vessels.

Is It Right for Me?

Lumenis® energy-based treatments are not suitable for everyone and carry some risks. Optima™ IPL is not suitable when you have active infections, viral, fungal or bacterial diseases, inflammatory skin conditions or skin cancer. Risks may include: redness, swelling and change of pigmentation. Be sure to consult with your treatment provider before choosing this treatment.

What Should I Expect ?
When Will I See Results ?

The Lumenis® Optima™ IPL Photorejuvenation treatment works with your skin to remove your imperfections and stimulate collagen and elastic fiber production over a sequence of treatments. Some skin concerns such as shallow pigmentation and age/sun spots may be cleared with as few as 1-2 treatments.

Typically 2-6 sessions with 2-4 weeks in between are needed to achieve optimal results for most skin concerns.

What Can I Expect After Treatment ?

Immediately following treatment, you may experience some redness, depending on your customized treatment settings. The redness will usually disappear within a few hours. In most cases, makeup may be immediately applied, and daily activities can be resumed the very same day.

Typically your physician should advise to stay out of direct sun for a few days following the treatment and to apply sun screen.

How Does It Work?
IPL Photorejuvenation Technology

The IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology allows treatment of pigmentation and vascular imperfections, while improving overall skin appearance.

Lumenis® IPL with Optimal Pulse Technology (OPT™) enables your clinician to customize the treatment according to your skin type and desired results. Light pulses penetrate the tissue and create heat, targeting the skin imperfection in a controlled manner. The body’s natural process then removes the treated tissue, while collagen and elastic fiber stimulation occurs, resulting in a visible improvement in skin tone and overall appearance.

The Treatment

To ensure utmost comfort, your physician should apply cold coupling gel on the treatment area. Depending on your specific concern, you can expect the session to last 15-30 minutes.

You may experience a warm sensation as the light is applied to the skin, but the treatment is gentle and should not feel uncomfortable.
