Men and women of all ages struggling with skin conditions and signs of aging have more non-surgical treatments available for skin rejuvenation than ever before. M22 is a “One for All” treatment option at the CentreFARS. The laser modular system brings together four high-end laser technologies to treat more skin conditions than any other modular system. With three device attachments, the M22 is versatile, addressing pigmentation concerns, rosacea, scarring, uneven skin tone and texture, and hair removal.
How Does the M22 Laser System Work?
The M22 modular system allows us to combine technologies and continue to increase the number of skin problems we can address with non-surgical treatments. The Lumenis® product utilizes Optimal Pulse Technology (OPT™) to send controlled energy pulses at peak power in short intervals for effective, comfortable treatments that deliver beautiful results. Your skin is cooled and protected between the pulses, known as Multiple-Sequential Pulsing (MSP™), reducing any risk for damage to the tissues.
The M22 attachments we offer at the CentreFARS include:
- The ResurFX™ uses the CoolScan™ scanner to protect your skin tissues during treatment. The ResurFX™ is a non-ablative fractional technology and the only one of its kind, offering interface changes in the shapes in which the laser energy is emitted for optimal precision.
- Multi-Spot™ Nd: YAG is an M22 attachment device designed to treat vascular lesions and leg veins.
- The Universal IPL handpiece for the M22 modular system addresses a wide variety of skin concerns, giving our skin care specialist the ability to customize your treatment with changeable filters.

How Long Does the Procedure Take To Complete?
On average, the Lumenis M22 Laser procedure takes about 30 minutes to complete. However, the exact duration will depend on how many areas are being treated in one session.
What Are the Risks and Possible Complications of Lumenis M22 Laser Treatment?
When performed by an experienced medical professional, the risks of treatment are minimal. However, similar to other laser procedures, there are potential risks which include:
If you have any underlying skin conditions that cause inflammation, be sure to mention this during your consultation with Dr. Doyle. As safe and effective as the Lumenis M22 laser is, it might not be suitable for all skin types.
How Is the Lumenis Laser Treatment Performed?
The Lumenis M22 laser treatment is an outpatient procedure performed by Dr. Doyle. Most patients tolerate the procedure well with topical anesthetic. However, patients who are having deeper lasering may require general anesthesia to keep them comfortable
When Will I Start Seeing Results, and How Long Do They Last After Getting Lumenis M22 Laser Treatment?
Some patients see results after one treatment, while others start to see results with subsequent treatment. Results from the M22 laser are long-lasting, oftentimes as long as three to five years.
How Can I Extend My Results?
You can maximize your results from the M22 laser by following a comprehensive skincare regimen at home and also wear sunscreen while outdoors. Depending on your skin type, you should apply sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 or higher.
Can I Combine M22 Laser Treatment With Other Procedures?
Yes, you can combine your laser treatment with other cosmetic treatments, such as dermal fillers to replace lost volume or neuromodulators that smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
What Is the Recovery Period Like?
Once your laser procedure is completed, you will be given postoperative instructions by Dr. Doyle. You will need to keep the treatment areas clean and apply a topical ointment, such as Aquaphor, to keep your skin hydrated.
