Dr. Akhavan is very knowledgeable! Over the last 2 years I have had both filler and laser done with amazing results ! My skin has never looked better. Dr. Akhavan will take his time to review all options available and give his professional and honest recommendation. I can’t wait for my next session!

Left me with 2nd degree burns on my neck, after laser treatment. Have permanent scars. Even after zinc burn treatments. The scarring is embarrassing and unfortunate. I wouldn't recommend this office.

Dr. Akhavan does not respond to follow-up questions despite repeated calls. When he treats you in the consulting room, he carries on two procedures at the same time, which is very nerve-wracking and does not inspire confidence.

Dr. Akhavan is patient and soft spoken he takes the time to explain every option available leaving you the opportunity to form your own decision and formulate the best treatment plan for your particular concern. He follows up with you and is very considerate about how you are doing and how the treatments affects are. His staff is very pleasant and low key it is a calming atmosphere.My daughter was suffering from horrible acne conditions and doctor Akhavans hydro facials helped her immensely.

Easily the most competent physician I have ever been to. I see Dr. Arash for both skin cancer screenings and minor cosmetic procedures and he is the best. I have already recommended him to almost my entire family and friends.
