5 out of 5 stars Stretch Marks Treatment
Everyone in the office is very professional and makes you feel very comfortable. I never felt pressured to make a decision about the procedure. I asked a ton of questions and never felt like I was bothering them.
5 out of 5 stars Thermage
I have been Dr. Ostad's patient since 1990's, his beginnings. He is simply the best caring doctor and a great dermatologist- surgeon. Not only he is a skin cancer and skin surgery specialist he also cosmetic procedures. I feel safe with him because of his excellent academic background and his experience. I have had many treatments at his office, all with excellent results. I recommend him wholeheartedly. He listens and he carefully examines and he does not needlessly try to sell cosmetic procedures, he is ethical and a caring doctor.

5 out of 5 stars Age Spots Treatment
Really happy w results after few laser treatments and prescription skin regimen. Skin looks at least 5 yrs younger! Did some superficial laser with little to no recovery time as my skin is very sensitive. It was all that's needed. After the second treatment my skin looked so much better, it was amazing! I'm so happy!
