Aug 8, 2022 | Age Spots, Lumenis M22


Notice a growing number of smooth, dark spots on your skin? No need to be alarmed, they’re probably just age spots (also known as liver spots or solar lentigines) these hyperpigmentation spots appear in areas of the body that are most often exposed to the sun, including your arms. And while they are usually harmless, age spots can detract from your natural beauty or make you appear older than you actually are.

If you don’t like how age spots look, Lumenis M22 can help lighten the appearance of age spots and prevent them from returning.

How Age Spots Form

Age spots occur when there’s excess production of melanin, a pigment responsible for a person’s skin coloration. When the skin is exposed to the sun’s UV rays, the body creates extra melanin as a defense against the damaging rays, thus producing a tan. Age spots are most prevalent on sun-exposed skin areas, including the face, neck, upper back, shoulders, hands, arms, and tops of feet.

Although age spots can develop at any age, they’re more common in people over 50 years of age. Individuals with light skin tones, a history of sunburn, and those who use tanning beds are more likely to develop age spots.

The Lumenis M22 Solution

Lumenis M22 is a modular aesthetic medical laser treatment for age spots and other sun-induced skin conditions. It uses two types of technologies: Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and ResurFX technology.

The M22 IPL works by delivering high-intensity pulses of light beneath the skin surface. These pulses target pigmented parts of the skin. The pigmentation absorbs the energy, breaking down and eventually being absorbed by the body. The age spots will flake off, leaving behind radiant, evenly-toned skin that has reversed the hands of time.

The Lumenis ResurFX is a non-ablative skin resurfacing laser that reduces the signs of aging and improves skin tone, texture, and laxity. Despite its ability to penetrate deeply into the dermal structure, it does not destroy or ablate the skin cells. Instead of removing thin layers of the skin, ResurFX stimulates the production of collagen and elastin fibers for deep healing. The result is a more radiant, youthful-looking skin.

Lumenis M22 is fast, non-invasive, and requires little to no downtime.
