The US FDA-approved Lumenis  M22TM  Universal IPL module can treat several conditions with a single versatile handpiece. It is the gold standard for IPL photo-rejuvenation and treatment of pigmentation, mild to moderate acne, and many more skin concerns. It can also remove unwanted hair.

How does M22 IPL work?

M22™ IPL treatments apply highly controlled pulses of light. For hair removal, the beams are selectively absorbed by hair follicles, damaging the follicle to prevent regrowth without hurting surrounding tissue. For marks or lesions, M22™ IPL wavelength is optimized so that only the unwanted melanin absorbs the light


Which areas can be treated?

The common areas include chin, jawline, underarm, forearm, bikini area and lower legs.

Who is a suitable candidate?

M22 IPL Hair Removal treatment is suitable for most skin types (darker skin types may be unsuitable) and is only effective on growing hairs as these are still attached to the follicle.

How long does each treatment take?

An upper lip and chin can be done in 10 minutes. Underarms or bikini lines usually take 15 to 20 minutes. Legs and back will take 20 to 30 minutes.

How many sessions are needed?

Hair goes through different growth phases and IPL laser works most effectively against hairs that are in the active growth phase. Initially, it is recommended that you undergo a series of four to eight treatments at four to eight-week intervals depending on the area treated.

Permanent reduction in hair growth is achieved in 70 – 80% of individuals treated, and the best results are achieved after multiple treatments.

You may have a few hairs re-grow over a period, so touch-up treatment may be needed for removal from time to time.

Is the treatment painful?

While tolerance of pain is very individual, no anaesthetics are required, and most people describe the sensation as practically pain-free, like that of a rubber band snapping onto the skin.

Price starts from $80 per session depending on area.
