The Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center is Open

We are still open at our regular office hours at each of our three locations. Our Medical Director & Founder, Emilio M. Justo, M.D., is seeing surgical consultations. Dr. Mark Yates and Dr. Manuel Zambrano will continue to see our postoperative patients as well as any urgent and emergency patients, along with medically necessary eye exams throughout this time.


As always during the cold and flu season that we are now in, we ask that you reschedule any appointment if you feel ill, have experienced a fever within the last 24 hours or are concerned that you may have been exposed to someone with these symptoms. We will be asking screening questions as patients arrive.

If you have an urgent eye problem and feel you need to be seen promptly, our office is here for you, but we ask that you call us at (623) 975-2020 to schedule a same day appointment rather than walk in.

Arizona Governor Doug Ducey issued an executive order mandating the temporary halt of all elective surgeries and all surgeries not considered life saving, in order to divert supplies to emergency and life saving medical needs. If your surgery must be rescheduled, one of our team members will reach out to you.

Our service to you is very important to us, so in response to this mandate, we have implemented changes to our schedule aimed at upholding high safety standards while still providing needed care.

To maintain a safe atmosphere for patients and our staff, we have significantly reduced the number of patients who will be in our offices at any one time. We respectfully request that any friend or family members wait in the car during the time that the patient is inside the office. The patient may also wait in the car until the doctor is ready, at which time we can call or text you in your car.

If you would like to try on eyeglasses, please ask one of our opticians to hand you the frames you are interested in, to ensure all frames are kept clean for you.

It is important that you know we are monitoring the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and will follow our usual OSHA guidelines for infection control. We are closely following the Center for Disease Control's recommendations as we learn more about the Coronavirus. We have increased our strong disinfection protocol and maintaining deep cleaning standards.

You are like family to us, and encourage you to contact us if you have any questions.

Reveal More Beautiful Skin

As people get older, their skin changes - both on the surface and deep underneath. These changes can cause wrinkles, lines, folds, irregularities in texture, and scarring. To effectively reduce signs of aging and rejuvenate the skin, treatment must address the top layer of skin and the deep levels of the dermis to stimulate the growth of new collagen and cells. Dr. Emilio M. Justo of the Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center uses LUMENIS® Encore UltraPulse® technology for deep laser skin resurfacing treatments at our Phoenix locations. If you'd like to learn more about how laser skin resurfacing can improve your appearance, please contact us today to set up a personal consultation with our team.

About Laser Skin Resurfacing with UltraPulse® Technology

The goal of laser skin resurfacing treatment is to remove the damaged surface layer of skin, and promote collagen and skin cell regeneration in the underlying layers. This combined approach smoothes wrinkles, acne scarring, and other irregularities in texture, while simultaneously improving the tone of the skin.

The LUMENIS® UltraPulse® is a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser that is considered the "gold standard" of fractional laser skin resurfacing technology because of its power, speed, and versatility. It is cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for a variety of dermatology and plastic surgery indications, so patients can rely on its safety and capabilities.

During a treatment session with the UltraPulse® laser, the handpiece delivers short pulses of high energy laser light to the skin; this gently removes the top layer of tissue, and stimulates the formation of new collagen. Collagen formation continues up to six months, so results are long-lasting.

Patients typically do not experience much pain or discomfort during a laser skin resurfacing treatment; however, this procedure is commonly performed under intravenous sedation administered by our anesthetist for maximum patient comfort. Laser skin resurfacing is customized to the particular patient's needs and goals; the versatility of UltraPulse® technology makes a range of treatment options possible.

Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing

Benefits to undergoing laser skin resurfacing treatment include:

  • Softens wrinkles, fine lines, and scars
  • Stimulates collagen growth
  • Long-lasting results with the proper skin care
  • Safe, effective, and convenient procedure
  • Minimal or no scarring

Risks of Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is a common and safe procedure that many of our Phoenix patients love. Common side effects include crusting, mild swelling, and brown discoloration on the treatment areas, which disappear as the patient recovers. More serious complications include scarring, infection, or loss of pigmentation; however, these risks are minimized if the proper surgical techniques and pre-and post-operative instructions are followed. One of the most important post-operative guidelines is to carefully protect the skin from sunlight in the days immediately following treatment.
