The Lumenis® Photofractional™ treatment is a complete skin rejuvenation solution, enabling your physician to offer you remarkable results on a range of skin aging concerns such as age and sun spots, vascular lesions, uneven texture and skin tone. Our unique rejuvenation technology includes two solutions, IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) and ResurFX™ non-ablative skin resurfacing, so that both skin tone and texture can be treated at the same session.
Is it right for me?
Lumenis® energy-based treatments are not suitable for everyone and carry some risks. Photofractional™ is not suitable when you have active infections, viral, fungal or bacterial diseases, inflammatory skin conditions or skin cancer. Risks may include redness, swelling, change in pigmentation or scarring. Be sure to consult with your treatment provider before choosing this treatment.
By using both IPL and ResurFX™ technologies, both skin pigmentation and texture can be treated at the same session. Lumenis® IPL technology removes both unwanted pigmentation and blood vessels from the skin, while the ResurFX™ fractional laser stimulates the production of new collagen and elastic fibers in the deeper layers of the skin. Stimulating new collagen production is the key to a more radiant, youthful looking skin.
To ensure utmost comfort, your physician should typically apply a topical numbing cream before treatment and/or use air cooling during treatment. Depending on your specific concern, you can expect the session to last 15-30 minutes.You may experience a warm or prickling sensation as the laser is applied to the skin, but the treatment is gentle and should not feel uncomfortable.
When will I see results?
The Lumenis® Photofractional™ treatment works with your skin to stimulate deep collagen regeneration over a sequence of treatments.
Already after the first session, you may begin to notice an improvement in skin tone and pigmentation. Typically, about 3 sessions are needed to have visible improvement in the skin texture. Optimal results are typically achieved after 3-5 sessions at 2-6 weeks intervals. However, you may continue to see improvements for up to six months following the treatment.
Immediately following treatment, you may experience some redness or swelling, depending on your customized treatment settings. The swelling will usually diminish after a few hours and the redness as quickly as the next day or over the next few days. Most patients are able to resume their daily activities the very same day. Typically your physician should advise to stay out of direct sun for a few days following the treatment and to apply sunscreen.

*Note: Results may vary from patient to patient
The ResurFX™ module of M22™ is the only true fractional non-ablative technology. One pass is all it takes.
Unlike other fractional technologies, ResurFX™ needs only one pass to be effective, saving you time and protecting the patient’s skin.
ResurFX™ uses a 1565 nm fiber laser and a very advanced scanner, which enables you to choose from more than 600 combinations of shape, size and density for optimal treatment.
The ResurFX™ module has a state-of-the-art CoolScan™ scanner for non-sequential scanning. The patent pending algorithm places each fractional spot in a controlled manner to protect the tissue from heat accumulation and overheating. This ability is unique to the ResurFX™ 1565nm fiber laser. The ResurFX™ handpiece is equipped with continuous contact cooling, to increase patient comfort during treatment.
