Scottsdale Center for Sight's founder, Dr. Paul M. Petelin, knows eye surgery—he's completed more than 10,000 LASIK surgeries, and is often the one other doctors go to when they're faced with a challenging case in their own practices. With Dr. Petelin at the helm, the center's patients can rest easy, whether they're getting a quick eye exam or going in for a more significant treatment. Dr. Petelin clarifies vision with cataract and lens-implant surgery, and diagnoses and treats glaucoma and age-related retinal diseases through surgery, medication, or laser treatments. As one of the first in the state to perform all-laser LASIK, the center specializes in bladeless LASIK corrective surgery, which is said to result in fewer surgical complications and gives patients more peace of mind.

Here, the doctor shows off his equally impressive medspa training, which includes certifications from Rocky Mountain College of Electrology and Laser and Candela and membership in the Academy of Medicine and Laser Surgery and the American College of Phlebology. True to this experience, he and his team preserve youthful complexions and figures using a blend of traditional spa services and advanced technology. Patients can feel at ease as Dr. Pettit shows off his skills with dermal-filler injections and laser treatments for a range of aesthetic purposes, such as hair removal with GentleLase and a Sciton MicroLaser peel, which erases signs of aging such as fine lines and monocle scars. Beyond laser therapy, the clinic also refines skin with facials and peels that call on Obagi skincare products.
Instead of impeding the body's natural healing abilities with invasive techniques, Dr. Todd Winton prefers treatments that work to empower their healing processes.

He also specializes in herbal medicine, treating patients with whole, beneficial herbs instead of tufts of grass or supplements containing synthetic materials.
With more than 1,000 liposuctions and facelifts under his belt, cosmetic surgeon Dr. Jose L. Robledo knows one thing for sure: nobody wants that “worked over” look. That’s why at Arizona Laser & Skin he and his team aim to make wrinkles and unwanted fat disappear with natural products and advanced techniques that rely on the skin’s innate healing ability. Minimally invasive procedures such as the Endotine Ribbon face and neck lift and AquaShape body-contouring system are performed alongside noninvasive beauty techniques such as FDA approved Viora cellulite-reduction and skin-tightening treatments. Micro-current facials get skin smoother than a dolphin’s raincoat by stimulating and thus helping to strengthen the facial muscles. In addition to emphasizing natural-looking results, the team prides itself on looking after the safety of its patients. A consultation precedes each treatment, during which clients find out if procedures are right for them, ask questions, and address any special needs.
