It’s now possible to vastly improve the health, accentuate the beauty and restore the youthfulness of our body’s largest organ — subtly yet dramatically improving the lasting impression we leave on friends, family, and coworkers.

What Is the M22 and How Does it Work?

In a single modular system, the M22 delivers treatment for more than 30 different skin conditions. To you as a patient, this means your practitioner has at his immediate disposal a vast library of possibilities. Instead of a surface treatment of any condition, treatments can be tweaked and combined for optimal outcome and less procedural or recovery downtime. All of the treatments of the M22 are noninvasive or minimally invasive, and more than 100 peer-reviewed scientific papers attest to aspects of its safety and efficacy.

The M22’s multiple apparatuses allow for a scores of treatment options including:

Universal IPL

Treating more than 20 skin conditions, including vascular lesions, pigmented lesions, and active acne as well as removing unwanted hair, its 9 distinct filter types and 3 changeable light guides can be used for the safest and smoothest skin conditioning and beautifying. IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light, treats uneven pigmentation, vascular imperfections, birthmarks, freckles, and more, and improves the overall complexion and appearance of the skin surface.


ResurFx offers a remarkable rejuvenation to the skin: more youthful, more glowing, more radiant. ResurFX’s many lenses and settings combine for an astounding 600 treatment options for perfectly regulated and pinpoint accurate treatment of scars, wrinkles, acne, stretch marks, and more.
