I have been using the Ultrapulsed CO2 laser since it was first introduced around 20 years ago and have been firmly impressed with the results that I can provide my patients in addressing qualitative issues of their skin associated with aging and sun damage. Given the right person and set of circumstances, the CO2 laser for facial skin rejuvenation can provide spectacular and predictable results that virtually always exceed those that can be obtained using any other alternative approach. That includes any of a myriad of chemical peels, micro-dermabrasion, standard dermabrasion, photofacials with intense pulsed light (IPL), and other lasers including Erbium.

The following patient of mine, a 52 year old woman, is a typical example of what can be obtained using the Ultrapulsed CO2 laser for full face skin rejuvenation. No other procedures were performed on her.

“Full” healing of the skin occurred in less than one week with some pink coloration present at one month. The postoperative photos were taken at less than two months after the procedure and without any cover-up makeup on.

This dramatic outcome is essentially impossible to equal with any other approach available today. Of course, it is not just the CO2 laser itself but also the extensive experience of the plastic surgeon that plays a crucial role in being able to obtain such a significant yet natural appearing result without complications.

If you would like more information on CO2 laser facial skin rejuvenation or for any other plastic surgery procedure that I perform or to schedule a free consultation, please call my office at 480-451-3000.

A Message Regarding Coronavirus/COVID-19

In light of the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, we would like to let you know of some of the major precautions we are taking in our office to maximize cleanliness and keep the environment as sanitary and safe as possible. Our highest priority is always to ensure the safety of every individual who sees us and we are taking extreme infection-control measures to maintain cleanliness and “sterility” of surfaces and the overall environment.

We will be limiting dates and times for office appointments and consultations due to safety and other issues. Consequently, if you have already made an office appointment or consultation prior to March 18, 2020 to occur at a later time, this may need to be changed.

For anyone considering plastic surgery, we are now offering Virtual Consultations and Telemedicine through Skype. A great number of aesthetic or insurance-related issues can be evaluated via pictures and online video conferencing, making this an excellent way to find out more about particular procedures, determine candidacy for treatment, receive answers to questions and facilitate being able to move forward with care once the government lifts all restrictions.

In an abundance of caution, we are asking all current patients who are experiencing a fever, cough, chills, fatigue or any type of respiratory illness to please delay any upcoming appointments at our practice. We can talk with you by phone or email to establish a new date and time for the appointment.

We are all in this together. Our team urges everyone to follow the guidelines recommended by local health authorities and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which include frequent handwashing for a minimum of 20 seconds, social distancing, staying home if you are feeling sick, and contacting your healthcare provider if you feel you are experiencing symptoms.
