"SSK Plastic surgery is the best plastic surgeons office in OC. Their entire staff is amazing and is very responsive. Jolene is their injector there and is amazing. I have gotten Botox, filler, and a few laser treatments from her and she is amazing. She always preps you on what exactly to expect, how it will feel, the results and she always follows up with you every day after. At SSK they really put their patients health and concerns first! Dr. K always comes in before the procedure and lets you know what to expect and sort of walks you through the process to ensure you know you are in good hands. He has some of the most talented people working at SSK! Jolene is also the sweetest person ever and will make you feel comfortable throughout the entire process :)"- S.C. / Yelp / Mar 19, 2020
"Dr. Kelishadi is hands down the best plastic surgeon in Orange County. He and his team made me feel comfortable and always taken care of. Shea and Alejandra answered any and all questions I had prior to my consultation. The team of anesthesiologists were world class and put my mind at ease prior to surgery. Dr. Kelishadi treated me like I was his only patient and was constantly checking in with myself and my husband post op and ready to answer any questions I've had since. If you have any desire to have any cosmetic procedures done, I encourage you to go see the very best and that is Dr. Sean Kelishadi. In addition to having my breasts augmentation at SSK, I have also been lucky enough to become a patient of nurse Jolene Retaskie. I reached out to her with some questions regarding Botox. She answered all of my questions and also provided me get resources to get discounts and coupons which was amazing!! She was so gentle and explained each step as I got my first dose of Botox. After she followed up with me and since then she checks in and always she's any specials or contests with me. As a busy working mom it's so nice to have a safe place to have "work" done. I highly recommend Jolene for all your injections needs!"- L.S. / Yelp / Mar 19, 2020
"Dr. Kelishadi is truly amazing, I would highly recommend to anyone considering any time of plastic surgery or Botox. I had breast augmentation done in 2016 with him and it was the BEST decision I could have made, they are perfect, symmetrical and I recommend him to all of my friends and clients.. His office staff is incredibly friendly and professional, they are always so helpful anytime I come in for a follow up."- K.B. / Yelp / Jan 05, 2021
"Here is the before (on right) and after (on left, brighter pic) pics.My main issue was the crease between my eyes, in the middle, slightly above and in my brow area. In the pics it looks slight but in real life I had a definite crease, which was obvious.As you can see that has been taken care of!!! Also the other wrinkles on my forehead area look much better, too.The staff at SSK, NB was amazing and Dr. Kelishadii is top notch!Krystal- thanks again for making my 1st Botox experience a awesome one and giving me such amazing results.PS still seeing the results."- A.H. / Yelp / Oct 12, 2021
"This review is for Krystal. I was going to SSK for a consultation (from out of town) and since I was going to be in the office, I thought I should make the most of it and have Botox done while there. I had only had Botox done 1x before and it was approx 3 years ago. It was an awful experience, but I thought I would give SSK and Krystal a try and see if it would be any better. I informed the staff that I have a phobia of needles and so anything we could do to make it better would be much appreciated. Their office is clean and very nice and puts you at ease. Krystal did everything possible to make it the best experience- and it was! She didn’t draw on my face, but rather on the paper next to her, she used the best needles to make them the most effective and reduce pain, she applied a numbing cream (AMAZING), let me listen to music and checked in with me during. Her technique was incredible and you can tell she truly is a master of her craft! I didn’t pass out. I didn’t hurt and I didn’t even bruise!!! My lines are worlds better and it is all because of Krystal. Thank you for listening to me and taking the time to do a great job! You’re so talented."- L.F. / Yelp / Oct 12, 2021
Who is a Candidate for BOTOX?
Furrows and creases can form in your face from years of frowning, concentrating, squinting, smoking, or expressing everyday emotions. Smoking adversely affects the skin overall, especially in pursed lines around the mouth. Whatever your cause of visible aging, over time, your skin loses elasticity—it won’t bounce back to its original fullness and smoothness, leaving behind permanent lines and creases, even when your face is calm and your muscles aren’t moving. Skin tone and texture--especially of the face, neck, and hands--can be improved with remedies that produce tightening, filling, smoothing, or a combination.
What to expect during BOTOX
Although we can’t erase the habits, emotions, or other damage that created the crevices in your skin, BOTOX can be a great treatment option to temporarily diminish the varying degrees of lines, wrinkles, and folds on your face. Strategically-placed injection treatments are quick, usually without pain or side effects. An occasional patient experiences a little short-term tenderness, redness, bruising, or swelling that can be aided by a cold pack. Patients normally return immediately to their regular activities.
The addition of neurotoxin to the face and neck area is a useful adjunct to diminish lines and bands seen when making active facial expressions--helping us to keep you looking younger.
- Botox Cosmetic® and Dysport® neurotoxins block the nerves from activating the muscles that cause undesirable wrinkles during facial expressions. Our knowledge of anatomy allows us to target those offending muscles, while preserving those muscles that help to keep you looking young. Full results usually show in about a week and last several months.
- Other treatments such as dermal fillers like Juvéderm and Radiesse can also help to replace lost collagen and to “volumize” areas such as cheeks and hands that have lost fullness. They can also be used in conjunction with wrinkle relaxers such as BOTOX and Dysport. The result can be a rejuvenated look that normally lasts from months to a couple of years (based on the area and product used). We are all unique in how we age and where we are most affected. Depending on your degree of damage, you may need more than one treatment and/or regular maintenance to furnish the most benefit.
Our goal is to restore a result that is more youthful yet so “natural appearing” that others won’t know you had anything done--they’ll just say you look refreshed and younger!
How many BOTOX injections will I need?
The number of BOTOX treatments given will differ according to personal goals and the depth and severity of your facial lines. Our staff at SSK Plastic Surgery can determine the appropriate number of injections according to your targeted aesthetic goals and whether you wish to treat the brow area, forehead, or Crow's feet. To prolong your aesthetic outcomes, our team could recommend getting follow-up BOTOX injections about every 3 – 4 months.
Can I combine BOTOX with other aesthetic services?
BOTOX treatments often pair well with other nonsurgical services for women and men who prefer to address aging concerns. If you have deeper and more severe lines and wrinkles, we might talk with you about administering a dermal filler for your smoothest outcomes. To further improve a youthful, radiant glow, Dr. Kelishadi may provide additional complementary treatments, such as microneedling with PRP or facials.
Is there a variation among wrinkle reducers and fillers?
Even though wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX, are used to decrease facial lines by temporarily freezing your muscle contractions, fillers are a separate category of cosmetic options that enhance facial volume. Dermal fillers are intended to plump gaunt-looking areas and soften static wrinkles. If you wish, Dr. Kelishadi may discuss with you whether or not you might benefit from a dermal filler to complement your BOTOX results.
