Actually the machine in "Mawdryn" was only designed to treat regenerative crises. Mawdryn had tried to rejigger it so that it could give his people the power of eternal regeneration, but he was unsuccessful at making the alteration. So the machine was not actually capable of adding regenerations to a Time Lord's life cycle.
