Perfecting la piel
Elevator pitch: We’ve taken AZ Laser from one clinic in 2008 to a thriving business and two locations three years later, one in Glendale and the other in Chandler. We cater to Latino men and women who want to look and feel their best. All of our services are administered with the highest degree of safety and expertise.
Our services include laser hair removal and cosmetic procedures such as facials, microdermabrasion, Botox and Restylane treatments. State-certified, medical-laser personnel perform all procedures. We also recently launched our own skin care line, AZL, and a new laser hair removal certification program.
Business buzz: We’re a husband-wife duo providing skincare services to Latinos in the Valley – in language and in culture. All eight of our staff members are bilingual, and we take extra steps to cater to our community. AZ Laser Skin Rejuvenation Center (azlazerclinic.net) has also been voted the Best Skin Care Clinic in the Valley by Gannett for the fifth consecutive year.
Entrepreneur action: Build relationships, analyze risk and be honest.
Best advice you have received: Never give up and always try to find ways to make it through.
What prompted you to open AZ Laser? We grew up in a business environment. We believe in a strong work ethic and we started our own business when the opportunity presented itself.
Best thing about small business ownership: Driving your own course and being captain of the ship.
Biggest business challenge: Being organized in every aspect. It’s difficult to be organized when you’re in charge of everything and try to do everything at once.
Milestone: Every week and every day is a milestone. We are always looking forward to what the next day will bring, and every day there are new challenges and new opportunities to take care of. For us, waking up every morning knowing that our business is growing is an accomplishment.
Business advice: Assess risk, but don’t be afraid to go for it.
The future: The next step for AZ Laser is to identify regional markets where we can expand.
