5 out of 5 stars SculpSure
You will never meet a more knowledgeable and talented doctor who is as kind and caring as Dr. Akhavan. He is as skilled in dermatology and cosmetology. His botox and filler treatments are so natural people look at me and say I look really fresh and young and never like I had something 'done'. This wonderful doctor found a melanoma smaller then a the tip of a needle on me and saved me. But...
5 out of 5 stars Cellfina
Dr Akhavan is always the best. He's so patient, answers all of my questions, and always puts me at ease. I trust his opinion and abilities- I had Cellfina done for the cellulite in my thighs and the results were UNBELIEVABLE. The dimples in my thighs are 90% better and I am so much more confident thanks to him. He changed my life!!!! I highly recommend both Dr. Akhavan and the Cellfina procedure.
5 out of 5 stars Lip Augmentation
I have seen Dr. Akhavan for lip filler, cellulite treatment, and botox. Always great. Such a nice staff and beautiful office as well. The only person I would ever go to for anything cosmetic or plastic surgery related.
5 out of 5 stars ThermiVa
I have worked with Alyssa and Dr. Arash Akhavan for 4 years now and have only amazing things to say with all of my experiences in their office. They have kept me looking fresh and young, and the Thermiva procedure was handled with the same high level of care they always offer. Dr. Akhavan is very caring, and very smart, and always takes the time to listen and help me make the right decisions. He never pushes any procedures on me. Alyssa administered the Thermiva treatment and made the whole experience very comfortable, and made the time pass very quickly by talking to me the whole time. My last treatment is coming up in 4 weeks.
