5 out of 5 stars Restylane
This is not the first time I have had this procedure with Dr Roustan. I had Restalyne in the under eye area back in March 2009 and I was at that I required 2 ML of Restalyne. It lasted for about 2 years as I returned March 23 2011 and only 1 ML was required as I desired to add more before I could notice dark circles and loss of volume on my cheeks. Today on June 6, 2013 I returned again for...
5 out of 5 stars Liposonix
So I went in to have my under eye veins zapped this morning and left with a liposonix treatment on my stomach pooch. They did 5 squares, 3 passes each. I didn't take a sedative and it stung a little here and there but it wasn't that bad. I'm a little tender but I left the office and went straight to work.
5 out of 5 stars Fraxel Laser
With a 35th birthday approaching, I was starting to take a closer look at my face and skin and wondering why I just didn't wear more sunscreen and use more moisturizer when I was younger. I was seeing dark brown sun spots, red spots under my skin, larger pores, and fine lines. I figured there was nothing I could do about it now. But after talking to Dr. Rostan, I took her suggestion to...
5 out of 5 stars Fraxel Laser
I have received 4 Fraxel restore with TCA Peel treatments from Dr. Rostan and her team this fall. I had scarring from cystic acne that left my skin very uneven, with ice pick scars and some rolling scars. I am very pleased so far, even though I am not finished with my course of treatment. The ice pick scars have almost disappeared and my overall skin texture has smoothed out wonderfully. Just...
5 out of 5 stars V Beam
The flushing and redness on my entire body increasingly gets worse, so I opted for V Beam laser treatments for both aesthetic and lifestyle comfort purposes. I had a second VBeam treatment today with Sue at The Laser and Skin Center in Virginia Beach. I am very pleased with her aggressive treatment, although I have a lot more swelling this go around.
4 out of 5 stars Accutane
I struggled with cystic acne from the ages of 17 to 23. My acne was not severe but persistent.I tried every treatment known to man: over the counter products, Proactiv, prescription Benzoyl Peroxide, Retin-A Micro, chemical peels, vibradermabrasion, Smoo
4 out of 5 stars Acne Scars Treatment
Consultation only. Will update post procedure. Today was my first visit. I had read several poor reviews after making my appointment, but decided to keep my appointment. I am glad I did. I arrived about 45 minutes early. I had my 8 month old with me and knew he would need to eat before my appointment. I checked in early and within 20 minutes of my arrival, which was 45 minutes early,...
2 out of 5 stars Fraxel Repair
Fraxel Repair is by far no facelift, but you do get results. Up to three months out I had very smooth skin. I'm guessing it is a temporary look, much like a peel. I was reddish and smooth as a baby's behind. Now six months out you can see the lines again. My face is not as taut. The lines are not as severe, but not like the smoothness of three months out from the procedure. Overall...
5 out of 5 stars V Beam
Skin still looks awesome!!! Will need to go for another treatment in a couple of weeks, which is expected. I also have had laser hair removal at the office as well with fantastic results. Dr. Rostan has been a wonderful, caring professional who understands the need for women to look and feel great.
5 out of 5 stars Vein Treatment
I had to travel 2 hours each way to get my under eye veins lasered. Because of that, Dr.Rostan and her staff were super accommodating and let me have the option of doing the procedure the same day of consult. I was kind of scared as industry professionals seem a little all over the place with this procedure but the laser tech took time to answer all my questions and she'd even had it done...

Vanquish, The Game Changer Let me count the times that I have put on my skinny jeans to only be disappointed by the spillage of fat over the waistline. Now understand, I am a dieter and exercise aficionado from way back, practically my whole life or at least it seems like it has been my whole life. Unfortunately, diet and exercise can shrink the size of your fat cells, but doesn’t eliminate the fat cells. Until recently, body contouring was achieved by liposuction, an...
Coolsculpting by Zeltiq is a new, non-invasive method for removing unwanted fat in areas such as the abdomen, hips, love handles, and back fat. Below Dr. Rostan gives a personal account of her treatment with Coolsculpting. Read no further if you thought Dr. Rostan had no areas of unwanted fat…. I stay in shape and watch my weight (often watch it go up and down!) but I have always had a roll of fat on my lower abdomen. Nothing major but with the advent of low rise jeans and especially...
