About Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing at John Williams Plastic Surgery is a noninvasive cosmetic procedure that utilizes pulsating beams of light to remove damaged skin cells layer by layer. The procedure is great for addressing facial wrinkles and lines and for diminishing skin flaws, including acne scars, pigmentation, and other issues. Also referred to as a laser peel, laser skin resurfacing with LumenisM22's ResurFX is a great procedure for people who want softer, clearer, youthful-looking skin. Depending on the condition of your skin, the treatment may be customized accordingly. There is little recovery time associated with this procedure and patients typically enjoy great results after just one session. Any questions or concerns may be discussed with Scottsdale, AZ plastic surgeon Dr. John Williams or a member of our team during your consultation.
A Photofractional treatment is a total facial rejuvenation procedure designed by LumenisM22 to treat hyperpigmentation, sun spots, fine lines, and uneven skin tone. Photofractional treatments are minimally invasive and allow patients to return to their daily activities faster than other comparable skin rejuvenation options. The secret is the combination of two powerful technologies, ResurFX and Universal IPL. The two technologies combined work to improve discoloration, tone, texture, and elasticity by stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin fibers deep within the skin.
"Words can not express how truly happy I am with my whole experience! I have wanted this surgery for years, but never thought I would actually voluntarily have someone cut me open. Trust in someone to do that is HUGE! Dr. Williams put me at ease immediately. After meeting and speaking with Dr. Williams I knew I was in good hands! He explained the whole process and everything I should expect (good and bad). If I had known about him before I wouldn’t have waited so long! His whole staff is fantastic, especially Adriana! Thank you for EVERYTHING! It’s been a month, I know I have a long way to go till I’m all healed, but I am already so very happy with the results! If you are looking for a great surgeon look no further!"- K.L. / Google / Sep 22, 2018
"This review is long overdue. After having two kids and going through the cycles of gaining weight and losing it, 80 pounds with my first, and 40 with my second while I gotten below my pre baby weight I couldn’t get back to my pre baby body. That’s when I decided to explore a mommy make over. I did my research and met with a couple surgeons in the valley and while they were all very skilled and highly recommend I hadn’t found the right one and was about to give up. That is when a friend in the medical profession recommended Dr Williams. From the moment you walk into his office his staff is 100 percent welcoming an puts all their focus and attention on to you. As soon as my husband and I met Dr Williams we knew we had found my surgeon. There was an instant level of comfortability with him. He took the time to listen to what I wanted out of my surgery and then made a number of recommendations. As we were talking through the process I could tell he was meticulous, thorough, and wanted to make sure my satisfactions his patient was priority number one. He spent as much time as we needed going over the process and answering any questions that we had. The morning of my surgery he met with my husband and I and once again answered questions we had, his approach and kindnesses put me at ease as I was very nervous. He even personally called my husband and updated him on the surgery after a long 7 hour procedure on a Friday when most people are looking to get out the door and start their weekend. After my surgery while recovering overnight one of my nurses made the remark that Dr Williams patient always have little swelling, bruising, and bleeding because compared to other Surgeons they see. Dr Williams even stopped by on a Saturday morning and made sure I was comfortable with my after care instructions and ready to go home. Fast forward 6 months and I could not be happier with my results. I have my 20 year old body back. My confidence has skyrocketed and this summer I was actually able to wear a two piece at the lake without feeling self conscious about how I perceived my post baby body looked. I am so happy I found Dr Williams. I couldn’t be happier with the results. I cannot thank him and his amazing staff enough."- K.C. / Google / Aug 08, 2019
"I have never had a surgery done before, but Dr. Williams made it the best experience. I told his office the wrong date of my surgery and they managed to fit me in to make it work, I gave them only 2 weeks (or less) from consultation time to surgery time and they made sure everything was covered. He truly cares about what the final outcome will be and will give you his honest opinion. I am currently still in recovery but this has been the easiest thing I have every done, and I am loving the outcome! I would highly recommend his office to anyone. I loved him and the results so much that I am even going to get a facial done here. The ladies in the front truly care about you and are super nice. They are knowledgeable and they make everything easy to understand for everyone. They try to connect with you to make sure you will get the services you want/need. Before going to anyone else, I would say look into this office and see if they can care for you and provide the services you want because you will not be disappointed."- D. / Google / Jun 27, 2019

Fractional laser skin resurfacing with ResurFX is geared toward any male or female in Scottsdale, AZ who is unhappy with their overall complexion. If you have skin damage caused by the sun, acne scars, age spots, wrinkles and fine lines, pigmentation, or redness troubles, ResurFX can help correct these cosmetic flaws. Also, it is wonderful if you have a rough texture, scaly patches, or other irregularities. This treatment isn't suggested if you have very dark skin tones or active acne. In addition, it is important to understand that there is a recovery period associated with these laser treatments. Some patients, based on their skin condition, may need up to 2 – 3 weeks for total recovery and results.
Your treatment will be tailored to your unique needs and skin type. If you have a more intense treatment, you may be asked to use a retinoid product for 2 – 3 weeks before your laser procedure. This helps prep the skin for maximum results. A member of our team will apply topical anesthesia to your skin prior to your procedure to help you remain comfortable during your ResurFX treatment. For the full complexion or more intense laser treatments, another type of sedation may be used. Throughout the procedure, you will relax in our treatment chair while the ResurFX laser passes over your skin, precisely targeting specific areas.
What to Expect
We may apply a soothing product or skin protectant to your skin after your treatment. Your skin will appear red, and there may be some irritation and swelling. These symptoms subside in a few days, and the peeling process will last over a 3 – 5-day timeframe. Patients are free to return to their activities as they feel ready. If your treatment will be a more intense one, your healing may take longer. All patients should limit their UV exposure after their laser treatment and use sun protection frequently. For all peel intensities, the skin will naturally flake, crust, and peel away. It is crucial to avoid interfering with the recovery process to prevent scarring and to shield your face from environmental exposure. After the peeling process has been finished, the treated skin will feel softer while looking clearer, rejuvenated, and younger.
