5 out of 5 stars Vivace

Forehead Wrinkles Be Gone!

My new favorite treatment is The Vivace Experience! I had no idea what to expect, and I was blown away. My 45-minute microneedling/radio frequency treatment was a huge winner. The clinician used the highest setting on the device, and I felt virtually nothing with the awesome numbing cream they put on me. Then afterwards, two hours later, no one could see any sign I had a treatment, except my...

Fabulous Results from an Amazing Doc - Albuquerque, NM

As a "seasoned" professional actor/communicator,I needed this to be successful. My results were so lovely and natural, that I happily share my Doc and my procedures to the women I meet. He did two procedures. A very smart doc, he had to "undo" a couple of old string lifts and that added compexity to my procedure. Back to work in 13 days, he did a brilliant lower jaw and...

Great Results - Albuquerque, NM

I have shared my experience with all of my friends and even the NP who performed my pre-op. She had asked that I stop in so she could see my results. She thought I looked great and even is considering having her mother see you for a laser! All of my friends say that of all of the results of others they have seen my are by far the best. Dr. T. was great and the whole staff was very...

The Inner Me Shines Forth! -Albuquerque, NM

I had the Lifestyle Lift face and neck procedure and also the whole face fractional laser treatment. I love my results because I look about 15 years younger. The jowls and sagging that made me look older and tired are gone and I have my youthful jawline back. The laser treatment made my skin more translucent and glowing. Dr. Taghezideh and all the staff at Lifestyle Lift were so friendly and...

A Work in Progress - Albuquerque, NM

I completed another part of my "package" procedures around the holiday season. It appears that almost every day I look into the mirror, there continues to be improvement! I am so pleased with what has happened so far...and there is still more to complete. One important thing that so true is that time - and a lot of time - had caused the present condition of my face/neck. I wanted it to be...

5 out of 5 stars CO2 Laser

Honest, Individualized Course of Treatment - Albuquerque, NM

I followed Dr. Taghizadeh's recommendations for four procedures: Fractional laser treatment (for improved skin tone through increased collagen production), Naturalyn fat transfer (to diminish laugh lines and sunken cheeks), Botox (which I'd never had before), and Viora Glow (which improves collagen production). People (including those who provide skin care professionally) have said that my...

i went for it! - Albuquerque, NM

With much interest, I watched repetitive ads for the LIFESTYLE LIFT this summer, so my husband said “Check it out”! We did just that, and I signed up for one the day of my consultation! Rich, the Center Manager, explained each procedure thoroughly and introduced us to Dr. Taghizadeh, the surgeon for the Albuquerque Center. Dr. Taghizadeh has a kind and gentle nature with a confidence...

I Am 61 Years Old, Diabetic with Severe Nasal Polyps That Required Surgery. - Albuquerque, NM

Dr. Taghizadeh performed my needed surgery with the utmost care and precision. I am able to breath and function with absolutely no restrictions. Because of his care the polyps have not returned and I expect that they will never return. I am now and will forever be, "Grateful" to Dr. Taghizadeh's dedication to his patients, his dedication to his profession, and last but not least, his...

4 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

I highly recommend Dr. Taghizadeh

I have disliked my nose from the time I was a teen (it's large, bulbous, and crooked) but was unable to do anything b/c of finances until the ripe ol' age of 37 when my husband surprised me by taking a loan out of his retirement. This was a BIG deal. I made myself very clear to Dr. T that my ideal was the golden ratio and that I was extremely unhappy. He used his high tech computer camera to...
