Dr. Kamran Khoobehi prides himself on offering non-surgical skin treatments at his cosmetic surgery practice.
DR. KHOOBEHI: From the beginning of my practice I always believed in that you cannot have a beautiful face lift without having beautiful skin. So from day one I had an aesthetician in my office and I always tried to provide the patient with the best possible surgical treatment, but also provide them with the best possible skin care. And we've been using multiple skin care lines in our office since day one, and there's one line that I like, it's Obagi Skin care, and I've been using it and have been very comfortable, and all my patients have liked the results they're getting from that one. Skin care, and also non-invasive procedures that help the patient feel better, look better, there are multiple options available. As a plastic surgeon, what I believe in is that I need to offer my patients both invasive and non-invasive procedures. I truly believe that when the patient comes to me, I don't want to tell all my patients that you need the surgery. I want to have a capability to tell my patients that, one, you're going to have a better result with Botox, or a better result with Rejuvaderm, or Restolin, or there's another patient that's going to come in and I'm going to tell them that those non-invasive procedures are not going to work for you. The best thing is going to be to do surgery. And also, having the laser treatments in our office, it gives me the capability to offer those patients not only the best possible surgical procedure, doing the lift, blepharoplasty, but also treat their skin. No matter how good of a surgeon you are, you will not be able to change the texture of the skin. You can lift the skin, you can bring the tissue up, but you cannot change the texture. And I provide my patients with the total care. We start with the skin care, laser treatments, Botox, Rejuvaderm, and Restolin. And this, I believe, that my patients, they're going to be completely, have a complete treatment, including non-invasive and invasive procedures. STEPHANIE: My name is Stephanie Vertagetz, I'm a licensed esthetician for Dr. Khoobehi. If you're out there wondering about skin care, I believe in Obagi. Obagi to me is very personable because I've tried many things out there and Obagi is the only thing that I believe in and that I know that works. It's a skin care for life. It treats any condition. If you have acne, rosacea, hyperpigmentation of the skin, sun damage, future sun damage, I believe in it because it works, because it has hydrocrenue, which is a bleaching agent, which helps reduce the sun damage in the skin and discoloration. The Retin-A that we use with Obagi helps with fine lines and wrinkles and for the acne, and glycolic is there to exfoliate the skin. So Obagi has everything in it that a person would need to achieve the results they're looking for for healthy skin for life.
