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.

Kind and Caring - La Jolla, CA

Dr. Kolstad was very welcoming and answered all my questions. I didn't feel rushed. He made me feel very special.

5 out of 5 stars Chemical Peel

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.

Rhinoplasty - La Jolla, CA

Dr Kolstad made me feel comfortable throughout the whole process and he has impeccable bedside manner. He is very patient, answered all of my questions and I never felt rushed in any of my appointments. From initial consultation to post op appointments, I have always felt genuinely cared for. I highly recommend Dr Kolstad!

Natural Lip Augmentation - La Jolla, CA

I chose Dr. Kolstad because he advertises natural lip augmentation. I was very specific about the results I was looking for being that this was my first time getting lip injections. He carefully listened to exactly what I requested, even though not typical and perhaps counter intuitive. Dr. Kolstad is gentle, straight forward, receptive, and professional. I think frank conversation is key when selecting a surgeon to do any cosmetic procedure, and Dr. Kolstad will give that to you. If you can convey your expectations, I am certain he can meet them.
