FAQ

It is common to have questions about all of the different laser skin treatments available. That is why our doctors have answered some frequently asked questions for you here. Please contact us for more information on the Lumenis M22 IPL treatment.

Q: Is the treatment painful?

A: Part of what makes the Lumenis M22 unique is its focus on cooling between pulses to minimize the discomfort experienced by the patient. You may feel a slight stinging sensation during the procedure, but the treatment session is relatively quick and discomfort should not last long.

Q: How long does it take?

A: A Lumenis M22 treatment is ideal for busy patients who do not have time for a lengthy procedure. The treatments typically only last 20 minutes depending on the patient and the area to be treated.

Q: How many treatment sessions will I need to see ideal results?

A: For the majority of patients, ideal results will be revealed after 4-6 treatments spaced 4-8 weeks apart. One of the many benefits of this treatment is that results are long-lasting, and most patients will only need touch-ups to maintain results.

Q: Am I a good candidate?

A: If you are a healthy individual looking to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, scars, hyperpigmentation, or veins, you may be a good candidate. This treatment is great for improving the overall look of the face, neck, chest, back, and hands. The best way to find out if the Lumenis M22 is right for you is to schedule a consultation with one of our laser experts in San Diego today.

Q: What is the recovery period like?

A: Because Lumenis M22 is non-invasive, patients can return to their normal daily activities immediately following treatment. It is common to experience some redness, burning, and/or swelling (depending on the specific laser treatment used) after treatment, but this should diminish within a week. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen daily, as your skin will be sensitive after treatment.

Q: Can it be combined with other treatments?

A: Yes! Lumenis M22 can be used in combination with dermal fillers and neuromodulators to further enhance results.

Q: Who should perform the treatment?

A: It is important that you seek laser skin treatments only from board-certified dermatologists. Our dermatologists have all undergone extensive training in laser skin care and are among the best in the field.
