Delayed Gratification: Your Superpower to Success

Improve Your Skin’s Tone and Complexion in One Treatment!

Over time, our skin loses its elasticity, tone, and color. Aging, sun exposure, and other factors can cause discoloration, spotting, sagging, and wrinkling, all of which can result in a tired and unhealthy appearance. If you suffer from wrinkles, pigmentation, sun damage, or poor complexion, a number of treatment options are available. These can include dermal fillers, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion. One of the most effective treatments for skin rejuvenation however is laser skin resurfacing. At our Phoenix-area treatment centers - located in Sun City, Sun City West, and Wickenburg - we are happy to offer the Active Fx CO2 laser system. This one-treatment solution can dramatically improve the tone and color of the skin and is a non-invasive alternative to cosmetic surgery. To schedule a consultation with Dr. Emilio Justo regarding this treatment, we invite you to contact the Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center today.

Treatment and Process

The treatment process for fractional laser skin resurfacing is quick and effective. In one 30 minute treatment, lines, pigmentation, and skin tone can all be markedly improved. Though the treatment is non-invasive, it can cause a slight level of discomfort for some patients, so typically a topical crème will be applied before the laser is directed onto the skin. Once prepared, the laser is applied to the trouble area. Unlike most cosmetic lasers, the Active Fx CO2 fractional laser pulses rather than emits an energy beam. By pulsing a laser beam onto the skin, rather than directing a steady state energy stream, surrounding skin tissue is undamaged and treated skin cells heal quickly. This leads to improved results and faster recovery.

The Active Fx CO2 laser works through several mechanisms: the laser energy can promote collagen production beneath the skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and hollow areas, and can ablate surface skin to correct for fine wrinkles and skin discoloration. Because the laser is non-invasive, no anesthesia is required and there is no scarring. The Active Fx CO2 laser is arguably one of the best fractional lasers on the market today and we believe it delivers superb results. If you are interested in laser skin resurfacing, we can help at our Phoenix-area treatment centers.

After the Procedure

Recovery time for laser skin resurfacing is nearly zero. With the exception of some possible redness, swelling, or soreness, there are no side effects and the treatment requires no healing. Any swelling or discomfort will subside quickly once the procedure has ended. To maintain results, patients may wish to repeat the treatment once a year, but for many patients, the benefits of treatment can last several years. Thanks to the natural collagen production brought about by the fractional laser, the benefits of treatment will actually continue long after the procedure is over.

Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing

Improved skin tone, fewer wrinkles, more even skin complexion, and increased facial volume are all benefits of laser skin resurfacing. Quite simply, laser treatment is one of the most effective ways to revitalize your appearance. Since the procedure is entirely non-invasive, it can be completed in less than 30 minutes, and it produces results that can last several years. If you are considering laser skin resurfacing because of wrinkles, sun spots, or sagging skin, we would be happy to discuss its benefits with you in person!
