5 out of 5 stars Ear Surgery

Otoplasty at Phoenix Skin - Phoenix, AZ

I have always had very prominent, protruding ears and have been teased about them for as long as I can remember. If I wore my hair down, my ears would frequently poke out of my hair causing undue self consciousness. If I wore my hair up, my ears would be on display and very distracting. I never quite felt comfortable in my own skin. The surgery itself was quick and the recovery time was...

We All Look & Feel A Little Better After Seeing Dr. Laris

Referral from another specialist in the Metro Phx area. A little more than one year ago Dr. Lee Laris performed the mini lift procedure on me, and I have wanted to express my thanks at least one hundred times since. Today is an excellent time to tell Dr. Laris and prospective patients how truly pleased I am with the results. His abilities and professional attitude are great little secrets that deserve to be shared. The pre-procedure counseling, as well as the follow up care and concern provided by Dr. Laris and his team were nothing short of remarkable. I continue to recommend Dr. Laris to anyone considering medical or aesthetic dermatology services. For the price of a weekend get-away, I am a more energized and confident me. This past week, I had lunch with a prior client I had not seen for 14 months. No lie, first statement made was "you look better and younger every year". My response, "make an appointment with Dr. Lee Laris"

Laser Hair Removal Has Been a Life Saver for Me! -Phoenix, AZ

I have been going to see the aesthetician at Phoenix Skin for laser hair removal to my chest and back hair for a few months now and it has made a huge difference. Dr. Laris' aesthetician, McKenzie Kelly is the absolute best and I wouldn't trust anyone else doing my procedures. I have had 8 sessions and nearly 75% of my hair is gone-and my hair is thick! Before I would get painful ingrown...

5 out of 5 stars miraDry

My MiraDry Experience - Phoenix, AZ

The procedure is extremely effective. The perspiration has completely stopped. I had soreness and pain for about 2 days. My goal was to stop the under arms from sweating and shirts from staining. I no longer have embarrassing wet spots on my shirts. I would do it all over again and I am very happy.

Laser Tattoo Removal - Glad I Did It! -Phoenix, AZ

After thinking about getting an embarrassing tattoo (tramp stamp) removed for quite some time, I finally asked Dr. Laris during an office visit about it. He explained to me that because of it's size and the fact it had a lot of red ink, it could take over a year to treat and full removal was not guaranteed. Despite this, I went ahead with it and couldn't be happier. It took 11 treatments, some...

Amazing Mini Lift! - Phoenix, AZ

I have to start this review by stating the Dr. Lee Laris is an AMAZING cosmetic surgeon! No one wants to grow old but we all do. I eat healthy, exercise daily and do my best to take care of my body. However, the neck and face sag with age and exercise cannot help this area. I decided I wanted to look as good on the outside as I feel on the inside. I am one week out of surgery and look...

5 out of 5 stars Hair Transplant

Love my New Hair! - Phoenix, AZ

It has been the best thing I've EVER done for myself!! It's now almost a year later and I just had my follow up and I can't believe how bald I was and how natural my hair looks now. It's amazing that I was able to get my hair back to the point I don't feel embarrased or feel like I look like I'm balding.

5 out of 5 stars Perlane

First Time Filler - Phoenix, AZ

I have had CO2 laser, Ultherapy (amazing results) and recently filler. I was very reluctant and nervous to have filler but he was conservative and skillful. I am thrilled with the results. Between the Ultherapy and filler I feel like 7 years have come off.
