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.

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.
