Most people appreciate the wisdom that comes with age. Fewer of us appreciate the changes to our skin that go with it.
However, skin resurfacing procedures using the Lumenis M22 let you have the best of both worlds: the advantages of age without sagging, scars, and stretch marks! The Skin Clinic medspa in Scottsdale offers skin treatments with this powerful laser system that provides dramatic improvement in skin imperfections, sometimes in a single session.
What is ablative skin resurfacing?
Skin resurfacing procedures use lasers such as the Lumenis M22 to reduce the signs of aging and improve skin texture, laxity, and tone. Ablative resurfacing removes thin layers of the skin and is ideal for patients seeking dramatic improvement. Ablative resurfacing removes thin layers of the skin, while also stimulating collagen production for deep healing. Because it uses pulses of laser light, it is non-invasive and requires little to no downtime for recovery.
What types of skin concerns can be treated with a Lumenis M22?
This technology can provide skin treatments for a diverse range of issues, including:
- Acne scars
