It is extremely common nowadays for people to seek non-surgical solutions for a variety of aesthetic issues that might have had only surgical options in the past. They are looking for approaches that require little or no down time from work or leisure activities, which are not associated with much discomfort and are affordable. Oftentimes, they are quite willing to accept limitations of outcome as a trade-off to meet these criteria.
With this in mind, I am pleased to announce that we have dramatically expanded the non-surgical aesthetic options available for our patients here at the Arizona Center for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery by adding laser treatment services. This laser, the Cutera excel V, can effectively treat and improve a variety of very common aesthetic issues some of which had either limited or non-ideal solutions in the past as well as no surgical options.
Some of the solutions and treatments that the Cutera excel V laser can provide include:
1. Non-ablative facial skin rejuvenation – rejuvenates the facial skin with tightening/firming of deeper layers without removing the top layers; no real down time; addresses fine lines and wrinkles
2. Age spots of face, hands and other areas
3. Severe sun damage of the neck and chest (poikiloderma)
4. Diffuse facial redness
6. Spider veins of the legs
7. Facial telangiectasia including of the nose (spider veins of the face)
8. Cherry and spider angiomas (small vascular deformities)
9. Scar treatment
10. Acne scars
11. Early bruising
12. Small venous malformations (deformities/clusters of small veins especially in legs)
Sun damaged neck before treatment
Sun damaged neck after excel V laser treatments
Facial redness and telangiectasia before treatment

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.
