NATURE meets SCIENCE
and BEAUTY greets MEDICINE.
Dr. Shirazi wanted to bring her 18 years of practice and 25 years of medical training to a large number of people who may not have access to a dermatologist. She aspires to help people regain confidence and feel their best!
Our Mission: SIMPLICITY & SCIENCE
Dr. Shirazi believes in simplicity and science. More often than not, her patients were spending hundreds of dollars on what they believed to be the next ‘miracle products', but the products lacked efficacy or were wrong for the patient's skin type. To help her patients achieve their skin goals, AziMD Skincare was developed to offer Dr. Shirazi's patients a medical-grade skincare line whose efficacy was based on clinical trials, science, and research.
What started as a passion to bring her patients the best products for their skin, quickly turned into a necessity to bring science-based medical-grade skincare to the market. AziMD Skincare’s formulations are made with the lowest levels of preservatives and are sulfate-free, gluten-free, paraben-free, dye and fragrance-free. These products are built on layered systems of the highest quality, pharmaceutical-grade ingredients to produce real results.
