We offer a variety of skin rejuvenation treatments designed to remove the top layers of blemished skin, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, sun spots, age spots, acne scars, and irregular pigmentation. Laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion can give you the more youthful skin tone you desire. We will help you choose the right option for your skin type and lifestyle.
We use advanced CO2 fractional lasers to perform laser skin resurfacing. These lasers are highly precise, and can target deeper lines and wrinkles without damaging the surrounding skin. At the same time, they stimulate collagen production, boosting the youthful elasticity of your skin. Our doctors often perform this treatment in conjunction with full facelifts, but it also yields outstanding results when performed alone.
Chemical peels offer similar results to laser resurfacing. However, this treatment uses a TCA (trichloracetic acid) solution to remove damaged skin. TCA is a non-toxic chemical, and it has been used safely for decades. Our doctors personally perform chemical peels, and they will carefully monitor the effects of the solution on your skin. Chemical peels have different strengths (light, medium, and deep), and your doctor will recommend the right type for your cosmetic goals.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a popular treatment for lines and wrinkles around the eyes and brow. These injections block nerve impulses and stop the muscle contractions that cause wrinkles. Our doctors personally perform BOTOX® Cosmetic injections to ensure your safety and help you achieve excellent results. Following your treatment, you can experience a significant decrease in forehead wrinkles and crow's feet. The treatment takes about 15 minutes, and the results can last several months.
We proudly offer both JUVÉDERM® and Restylane®. These dermal fillers consist of hyaluronic acid-based gel. Our doctors perform the injections themselves, and the smooth gel can fill in deep creases and boost skin volume in targeted areas. They are particularly helpful in treating nasolabial folds and sunken cheeks. They can also give you fuller lips. Your doctor will help you determine the right filler for your skin type and goals.
Dysport® is similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic. Both treatments use botulinum toxin to block nerve impulses and muscle movements that cause wrinkles. However, Dysport® tends to spread farther than BOTOX® Cosmetic, which can be an advantage, depending on your goals. Your doctor will help you select the right injectable for your needs.
Xeomin® is a new injectable treatment for lines and wrinkles. FDA-approved in 2011, the treatment provides comparable results to BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®, and the cost is similar. Xeomin® contains no proteins other than botulinum toxin. Therefore, it may be recommended if you have developed a resistance to these other treatments, or if you are allergic to them. At your consultation, our doctors will explain the benefits of each option.
JUVÉDERM® XC is an FDA-approved dermal filler that is used to fill out and smoothen age and lifestyle related facial lines, especially lines around the nose and mouth. It is a hyaluronic acid-based filler that adds volume to address moderate to severe wrinkles and lines, helping you achieve younger-looking skin.
Of the different skin rejuvenation options offered by Arizona Ocular and Facial Plastic Surgery, microdermabrasion is a gentle yet effective cosmetic method to refresh your facial complexion, reducing the signs of various skin conditions including acne, age spots, uneven pigmentation, minor scars, and rosacea. During a microdermabrasion treatment, a stream of microcrystals buffs your skin and removes dry and dead skin cells to reveal younger looking smooth skin.
