About Complexion Rejuvenation
Skin is a dynamic material. Dead cells slough away daily as healthy new cells rush to the surface to replace them. The interplay between what happens in the deep dermis and the outer layer of skin is vital to understand before you embark on a replenishment routine.
Laser and light treatments illuminate the best ways to aid your skin’s health. Focused beams can gently strip away impurities and promote the production of nourishing proteins like elastin and collagen. Hence, light-centric devices help to coordinate the interchange between subdermal rejuvenation and surface splendor.
Whether you wish to remove stubborn hair, minimize marks and wrinkles, or brighten your skin tone, Dr. Azar is your ideal copilot on the journey to your best self.

Healthy adults who wish to invigorate their complexion are great candidates for laser skin enhancement. Please inform Dr. Azar if you experience persistent infections or outbreaks in the treatment area. You may be disqualified from laser hair removal if you have certain circulatory conditions, raised moles, or a tendency to develop keloid scars. Dr. Azar can determine your eligibility for treatment during a comprehensive consultation.
You are a work of art. Every contour, every shade, and every inch of your skin adds up to a radiant, resplendent you. The best person to celebrate your unique glow happens to be both a physician and an artist. Dr. Azar spends his free time painting and appreciating the beauty in everyday life.

Healthcare is a back and forth endeavor. You tell the doctor how he can help, and he creates a strategy for treatment. In the spirit of great communication, we regularly update our blog. These posts will give you a glimpse of our dedication and devotion to skin wellness.
Preparation for Your Visit
The most important item to bring to your consultation is curiosity. Ask plenty of questions so that Dr. Azar and his associates can provide the answers you need. Every skin treatment is tailored to the individual, so each set of preparation protocols will also be customized. In general, please refrain from applying makeup on the day of your appointment and wear loose, comfortable clothing.
Laser and Light Procedures
The spectrum of services offered at Azar Plastic Surgery & Med Spa is stunning indeed. Peruse the following menu and contact us to further explore whichever items interest you most.
Excel HR Laser Hair Removal
An adult human body has almost five million hairs on it. Most of them are indistinguishable, but many cause an issue when they appear darker than the skin around them. To eradicate unwanted, unsightly hairs, Dr. Azar uses the Excel HR system. The focused laser beam targets follicles in the anagen, or active, phase of growth. The follicular cells absorb the energy of the Excel HR laser, shrinking them until they are unable to produce visible hairs.
Excel V Laser
As they say, beauty is only skin deep and luckily, so are imperfections. To reduce age spots, minimize scars, and erase spider veins, consider the benefits of our Excel V laser. This system is ideal in treating acne marks, rosacea, keloids and sun damage. The Yag laser is incredibly powerful yet wonderfully precise. It isolates vessels responsible for spider veins and other blemishes, gently heating them with ultra-quick pulses. In less than the blink of an eye, you can set back your aging process by a matter of years.
Skin care is a delicate dance between transformative resurfacing and subtle enhancement. Laser Genesis provides the light touch you need to achieve a bright, brilliant look. The 1064 nanometer pulses bathe enlarged pores until they yield to the warming power of the laser rejuvenation system. Genesis is so safe and stable that it can be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles along the periorbital region. Your crow’s feet will fly away, courtesy of Azar Plastic Surgery & Med Spa.
Profound RF Cellulite Treatment
Cellulite is a specific manifestation of fat, characterized by its striated or “puckered” look. The strands of connective tissue beneath the surface of the skin make cellulite deposits appear akin to cottage cheese. To break up the stubborn bands of fat, Profound RF utilizes radiofrequency waves delivered via microneedles to break up persistent cellulite. Simultaneously, the stimulating RF energy triggers the body’s natural production of hyaluronic acid and collagen. Collagen gives skin its structure while hyaluronic acid binds with moisture to keep it hydrated. Hence, in the place where cellulite once lingered, replenishment and rejuvenation now flourish!
Aging is inevitable, but that doesn’t mean it’s untreatable. By administering Secret RF microneedling energy to the source of fine lines, Dr. Azar targets depleted skin and cultivates its youthfulness. The “RF” in the name of this rejuvenative technique stands for radiofrequency. Soothing, warm waves of energy signal the production of collagen to replace a dull, crepey complexion.
SmartSkin + CO2 Laser Resurfacing
Dr. Azar has the ideal remedy to damaged skin and scar tissue. Studies show that CO2 laser treatment can significantly reduce the appearance of scars. On average, recipients showed a 75% improvement after 18 months. Azar Plastic Surgery & Med Spa can breathe new life into your complexion with the help of a CO2 session.
Recovery and Results
Depending on the exact type of laser or light treatment you receive, your skin may experience minor redness or tenderness. These side effects can be easily managed with over the counter pain medications, but please follow Dr. Azar’s guidance when it comes to any course of post-resurfacing care.

The cost of laser treatment depends on various factors. The exact technique you request, the extent of the treatment area, and the number of sessions required all contribute to the final fee.
