Redness and pigmentation problems can be an issue at any age. Whether it’s blotchy sun-damaged skin or something more serious like broken capillaries or rosacea, you can effectively improve the appearance of your skin with non-surgical treatments. Boost self-confidence and embrace smooth, radiant skin without the need for any downtime.

We understand just how frustrating complexion issues can be. That’s why at Derma-Tech Medical Spa, we offer minimally-invasive Lumenis M22 IPL Laser treatments. Patients experiencing overall redness, hyperpigmentation, and even those pesky brown spots can benefit from advanced photorejuvenation treatments.

What are M22 IPL Laser Treatments?

M22 IPL uses non-ablative pulsed dual wavelengths of light to precisely target darker pigmentation while leaving surrounding tissue unharmed. Pigmented skin will absorb the wavelengths causing them to rupture. Eventually, the damaged cells are naturally sloughed off by the body leaving you with a smoother, more even-tone complexion.


Men and women can temporarily treat common symptoms of scarring or sun-damage including;

  • Facial Redness
  • Brown Spots
  • Unwanted Freckles
  • Broken Capillaries
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Rosacea

M22 IPL treatments are highly-customizable. Your skincare specialist will determine the precise depths for application based on your individual needs.

How Many Sessions Will I Need?

Many patients start to see results about 1-2 weeks following their initial treatment. Typically, a series of treatments are needed to improve overall complexion. You can expect anywhere from 3-5 sessions spaced about 4-weeks apart. Depending on the severity of  pigmentation problems, some patients may need additional sessions to achieve optimal results.

M22 treatments are safe, effective, and relatively comfortable and are administered immediately following the application of a topical gel. Total facial rejuvenation can be achieved with a quick 45-minute appointment. There is no downtime needed following treatment allowing you to get back to your normal routine with minimal restrictions.

Maintaining Optimal Skin Health

Touch-up treatments are recommended on an annual basis to maintain the outcome of your procedure. However, taking certain precautions like the daily use of a broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher can significantly prolong the effects of your in-office procedure. Your skincare specialist will provide you with a post-treatment plan for retaining optimal skin health.

Am I A Candidate for M22 IPL Treatments?

Patients should be in otherwise good general health and have realistic expectations about what the procedure can do for them. IPL photorejuvenation treatments may not be ideal for patients with active acne, or darker complexions. If you’re bothered by overall uneven tone in your complexion, facial redness, brown spots, and broken capillaries, M22 IPL treatments might be just what you need. Consult with a skilled specialist to determine if IPL treatments are right for you.
