5 out of 5 stars Botox

Great Experience and Results! First Time Doing Botox - San Diego, CA

Dr. Kolstad was absolutely wonderful. He spent a considerable amount of time answering my questions and addressing all of my concerns. I have an intense fear of numbing medicines since the numbing sensation triggers my panic attacks but I was also unsure if I was prepared to try Botox without a little help. Dr. Kolstad was very understanding of this and did not rush me through my options and gave me the time I needed to think through my decision. I felt comfortable enough to try it without the numbing cream and it was a PERFECT experience. I will definitely go back for future treatments when I'm ready.

Dr. Kolstad is Very Patient and Kind and Really Cares About His Patients - La Jolla, CA

I got the "lunch time" peel from Dr. Kolstad. It's a chemical peel which just sits on your skin for a few minutes and after a few sessions gives the result of a major chemical peel. It works for me because I am really active and can't take a week out of my life to heal from a major peel. Dr. Kolstad is really patient and sits and explains the process and he encourages patients to call at any time if there is a problem. I really enjoy going to his office it's a great atmosphere and his assistant is really nice and helpful. She called me after my first appointment to make sure everything was going OK.

My Dreams Have Come True! - La Jolla, CA

Dr. Kolstad made this venture feel more like a friendship, rather than a doctor patient arrangement. He took the extra time to address all my fears and questions. I am so gracious for the time and effort he put into making me feel comfortable with the surgery and the recovery following. I was touched by the personal calls and emails inquiring about my healing progress and my peace of mind. It is important for a woman to feel beautiful at any age, and he gave me back the youthful look that I longed for. I would more than recommend him to any person considering plastic surgery and I would definitely go to Dr. Kolsatd again for future procedures if the opportunity presents itself.

Best Experience!! - La Jolla, CA

This was, without a doubt, the best experience I've ever had going to a doctors office. I am thrilled with my spectacular results and will definitely go to Dr. Kolstad in the future.

I'm Glad I Went to Dr. Kolstad - San Diego, CA

I choose Dr. Kolstad because of his humanitarian work. I went back to him because I liked the results I got as a result of his expertise. I've been to a few dermotologists and plastic surgeons, some of them recommended treatments and procedures that were in the doctor's best interests, not mine. Dr. Kolstad has not done that to me. Because of my experiences with him so far, I am comfortable to report that Dr. Kolstad has shown himself to be ethical and genuinely concerned that his patients get the results they want. Also, he gave me an enormous amount of his time to thoroughly and graciously answering my (many, many) questions about a neck and face lift procedure.

Finally Got my Nose Done! - La Jolla, CA

Dr Kolstad is a doctor that wants to hear what you have to say. He doesn't tell you what he thinks you want, I felt like he genuinely listened and that we where on the same page as far as a goal we where trying to achieve.

Happy Client All the Way from San Jose :) - La Jolla, CA

Dr. Kolstad was great. He was kind, professional, patient, and very knowledgable. He took time to talk with me, ask me questions, explain everything to me in detail, and made sure to continuously check to see if I had any questions or concerns. He didn't bombard me with information and he made everything as easy to understand as possible. He was very easy to talk to and made me feel extremely comfortable about the whole procedure. He didn't make me feel like he was rushing me out of his office like most doctors do. He took time to explain and answer all of my questions. To me, that's outstanding service and that's how you're supposed to run a business. Dr. Kolstad is doing everything right.

Rhinoplasty, Chin Augmentation, Brow Lift - La Jolla, CA

I was very comfortable with Dr. Kolstad, he was very honest with any questions Ive had and did exactly what he told me and that was to make everything look natural. He was very consistent with checking up on me or having his staff check on me after the procedures. He was available to talk about the surgery or any questions I had over the phone and in person. If your looking for a Facial Surgeon then this is the Doctor to go to.

Lip Augmentation with Juvederm. La Jolla, CA

The staff here is amazing. Kolstad is very calming. I just love the way he softly speaks.. It calms you. Plus he gave me a good amount of time for the numbing cream to work, so I really didn't feel that much pain : )

There is no recent activity.
