Fractionated C02 Laser Resurfacing (Phoenix 15)
Phoenix 15 Laser Resurfacing Treatments use the latest fractionated CO2 laser technology to achieve skin resurfacing & hand rejuvenation.
- Acne & traumatic scars
- Fine lines & wrinkles, especially those difficult to treat wrinkles around the mouth and eyes
- Pigment irregularities (sunspots, “age spots”)
- Uneven skin tone & texture
This laser uses new fractionated CO2 technology that allows for concentrated beams of energy to penetrate the skin surface and actively remove the dead and damaged tissue without harming the surrounding area. The controlled skin injury stimulates new collagen production and skin tightening over time. Results are dramatic but come with about two weeks of recovery time. Topical anesthetic cream is applied at home prior to treatment. Additional local anesthesia, a cooling device, and sedation may be advised to maximize comfort during the procedure. While you will be able to return home immediately after your treatment, we usually advise that patients rest and avoid excessive sun exposure for a couple of days afterward. This will help accelerate the healing process.
The Phoenix 15 CO2 system uses Swift Scan technology to reduce wrinkles, age spots, dark spots, and sun damage on the hands and forearms to produce a fresh, younger look. This is a quick and well-tolerated procedure with minimal to no downtime and rapid healing. Typically this treatment is done in a series of 3 procedures spaced about one month apart.
Erbium Yag Laser Resurfacing
Erbium Yag is a state of the art laser treatment which is used to address fine lines & wrinkles, irregularities in skin texture, photodamage, and skin discoloration. Areas most commonly treated are the face, neck, and chest.
Erbium Yag treatments are a form of ablative resurfacing with some downtime. There is less downtime, however than with more aggressive CO2 laser procedures. Following an Erbium Yag procedure patients typically experience 3 to 7 days of peeling, itchy skin which may impact work or social activities.
The treatment lasts about 20 minutes. Most patients have mild discomfort during the procedure when a topical anesthetic cream is used prior to the treatment.
While obvious results are normally seen after one treatment, a series of 3 treatments spaced 4+ weeks apart can yield excellent results.
I have a fair complexion and susceptible to skin issues. Enjoy going to their office the doctors and assistants have been very kind. Would recommend this office.
I had a great experience removing my skin cancer on the front of my shoulder a week ago. They were kind, detailed, and took the time to explain the whole process. I am glad I have chosen them to assist with my dermatology needs.
Very professional and skilled! Finally able to resolve some issues I’ve had in the past that other dermatologists ignored.
Dr. Woseth has long played a critical role in my health, for which I will be forever in his debt. He is one of the nicest and most competent doctors I have ever met.

Everyone at the office is very caring. I've been a patient here for about 3-4 years and they've taken care of me so well. The treatment they provide has been life changing!
First time doing a skin check and having something removed. They were very nice and fast. It was completely painless and relaxing. Pretty sure I found my new dermatologist.
