TRUSTED EXPERT DELIVERING
With today’s skin-changing technology never at a standstill, we’re always eager to discover the next level of its effectiveness. As a lecturing physician for the new Lumenis M22 platform and the Light Sheer Duet, Dr. Bonakdar is increasingly impressed with the depth of research that has gone into the innovations that have transformed these systems.
Lumenis established its place in the laser industry in 1966 and continues to stay at the peak of performance in ever-excelling treatment options. The latest in the Lumenis lineup are the M22 IPL with Optimal Pulse Technology and the newest – and truest – nonablative fractional laser, the ResurFX.
The M22 IPL offers solutions for 23 skin and vein problems (called “indications” in the medical world). Enhanced filtering and contact cooling – combined with the patented Optimal Pulse Technology – give the Lumenis IPL system capabilities that go far beyond the average intense pulsed light systems.
“I call the M22 my little robot because it’s expertly calibrated with intelligent preset treatment settings that insure consistent reproducible results. It’s become my personal favorite workhorse because it’s reliable, streamlined, performs as expected, is extremely patient friendly and it’s FAST. Who has time to waste these days? “
The ResurFX takes fractional resurfacing to a new level. The only laser capable of a single pass that actually delivers “multi-pass” results, the ResurFX uses a 1565 nm fiber laser and a CoolScan scanner. What makes this a big deal?
Typical fractional lasers require multiple passes because skin cooling is such an important element in a safe treatment program. Stamp pattern and rolling scan delivery can overheat the skin very quickly. This overheating can create a high level of post treatment discomfort or pain.
The ResurFX CoolScan uses a special sequencing that places each fractional spot in a controlled manner that allows the tissue to relax between pulses providing protection from overheating. Overheating can not only cause post-treatment pain but also dramatically increases the risk of treatment-related hyperpigmentation.
“What I love about the ResurFX is that it’s so absolutely skin-friendly. There’s no post treatment wound care and recovery is simple and quick. We all like to have great skin, but having to suffer for it is, for a great many people, not an option.”
