About Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing or CO2 laser resurfacing is a technologically advanced process to rejuvenate the facial appearance. Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. G. Robert Meger, uses Erbium Beam and Fraxel lasers to correct scars and blemishes and reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. The lasers used by Dr. Meger at his Phoenix, AZ private practice offer precision resurfacing, even in delicate or sensitive areas. Also known as a laser peel, the treatment uses a pulsating laser beam to remove the epidermis while heating the skin underneath. In turn, the process encourages the growth of new collagen, making the skin smoother and more toned. If patients are interested in receiving a laser treatment or learning more, they can schedule an appointment at G. Robert Meger, M.D. P.C.
The best candidates for laser skin resurfacing will be experiencing the following:
- Fine lines or wrinkles in the areas around the mouth, forehead, or eyes
- Sun-damaged skin, including liver spots
- Warts or birthmarks
- Enlarged pores, especially on the nose
- Acne scars

What to Expect
To prepare for laser resurfacing, several skin treatments may be scheduled before the therapy. Generally, the first treatment will take place about a month and a half ahead of the laser resurfacing. On the day of the appointment, our plastic surgeon or aesthetician may administer a local anesthetic. A sedative may be given as well. Eye protection is usually provided and the face is cleaned prior to the therapy. A Fraxel CO2 laser, which is used for a variety of skin conditions, is designed to deliver an ultra-pulsed and uniform light, removing the skin’s superficial layer with less risk of tissue damage. If a patient exhibits deeper wrinkling or lines, then an Erbium beam laser is generally used. The laser can also be used for the hands, chest, or neck. Treatment can take anywhere between 30 minutes - 2 hours depending on the area being treated.
After the therapy is completed, a dressing is applied to protect the treatment site. To encourage healing, our surgeon will typically prescribe or recommend a topical treatment or facial cream. Healing can take up to a week or more to complete depending on the laser strength that was used. After the patient's face has healed, they can see noticeable improvement and clearer skin. The results are long lasting, though 4 - 6 sessions are usually recommended to achieve the most ideal outcome.
