We’re born with plenty of elastin and collagen, which show in the thick, soft skin of babies. A face that is clear, smooth, and shiny through great skin care reflects light and is much more appealing than a face that is wrinkled and dull. Great care for the face, hands, and neck can go a long way in improving your skin. Plastic Surgeon Dr. Sean Kelishadi and his skin care professionals at SSK Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, CA can help significantly improve the condition of your skin.
Individualized Skin Care Reviews
"Dr. Kelishadi is absolutely amazing! I went in for micro needling and I'm not even kidding... it was completely painless. And not the kind of "painless" that waxing and laser hair removal ads say where it actually hurts like crazy... It was actually PAINLESS. His attention to detail was great, and I was able to take headshots 6 days later with no redness whatsoever. I've been getting tons of comments that I look visibly several years younger. I have the best skin right now that I've ever had. I couldn't recommend him enough!"- K.S. / Yelp / Aug 11, 2017
"What a difference a dedicated, professional, committed and gifted surgeon can make on the lives of his patients. Dr. Sean Kelishadi is exactly that type of Cosmetic Surgeon. He works with the entire client. He understands and listens to their needs and desires, he doesn't push his idea of what perfection should be, or look like. He realizes that there is no such thing as perfection, merely enhancing or correcting an area of a person's body that makes them feel less than desirable. Whether that is a topical skin care system, or surgery, or fillers to revitalize the appearance of youth. His office manager Lindsey is also a caring, professional, focused and friendly part of his team. In a beautiful, serenely decorated private office where you feel respected and welcome in. Not a large public waiting room in a practice where you feel like the world is watching you and trying to guess what YOU are there to have fixed. Dr. Kelishadi respects each client and their personal and private needs. I've had the pleasure of having Dr. Kelishadi prescribe skin care products that actually did what the manufacturer claimed. He uses only the best products. I was also lucky enough to be one of the first patients that began a collagen revitalizing injection program called Sculptra with Dr. Kelishadi . Not all Physicians are certified and spend the extra time required on their part to offer this service to their patients. It actually promotes your bodies own collagen production over time, and a series of injections to fill in hollow areas in your face brought on by aging. I have only undergone the first series of what was absolutely pain free to me, injections and saw a difference after the first series of injections, especially in the temple area of my forehead that was shallow due to my narrow facial structure. I look forward to completing the series of injections and seeing more of the areas of my face fill and restore my bodies natural collagen that aging has taken away. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Kelishadi to anyone who wants to retain the youthful appearance of their face, or their bodies that time and lifestyle may have reduced. Looking forward to a more youthful and less tired looking 2016 and beyond with the help of Dr. Kelishadi."- L.T. / Yelp / Jan 28, 2016
"Dr. Sean Kelishadi is genuinely, personable, respectful, honest, talented, generous, warm, attentive, hard working, thoughtful and the most caring doctor I know. He personally answers all questions honestly and attentively. I felt he was only interested in me AND my family’s best interest. That to me is so refreshing! I always feel welcomed and treated with kindness no matter what. I love the educational (very professional) stories he shares on social media because I learn so much and I feel in the know of the latest in skin care, he’ll even share his own experience and results! That is my favorite because it speaks how much faith he personally has in what he promotes."- P.B. / Google / Jan 25, 2020
"Greatest experience ever!!! I was recommended to Dr. K by 2 other friends. I had already tried going to a consultation with a different surgeon, however when I met Lindsey and Dr. K I fell in love with the office! The hospital we had the surgery at had an amazing team, my anesthesiologist, the nurses, and Dr. K were phenomenal. I had a breast augmentation and the entire process from my consultation to the procedure, to the healing process went so smooth and amazing. -when I came back for a 2 month check up, I had some acne and Dr. K recommended a body scrub from an amazing acne product. It worked so well, my skin Is back to normal. I will always go to Dr. K for any procedures!"- B.F. / Yelp / Mar 20, 2017
"Any of my negative pre-conceived notions about plastic surgeons dissipated the moment I met Dr. Kelishadi. I wasn't looking for surgery but rather alternatives that I could perform to ensure I was doing the best for my body to keep it at a place I was confident in without going under the knife. Dr. K isn't one of those doctors who tries to sell you on surgery immediately; quite the contrary, he examined me thoroughly and gave a candid assessment that he didn't think I needed surgery anyway! This proved to me that Dr. Kelishadi truly cares about each individual's needs, and has "helping people" as his compass and not just dollar signs. I have been receiving a thermal treatment with him for a handful of months and have been so happy with the respectful treatment I have received that it is a joy to go back. Orange County is a commute from LA, but the treatment and level of professionalism made it well worth it in my book.And did I mention he's funny? Dr. Kelishadi has a sense of humor that humanizes the process and makes you feel comfortable and at ease, almost like visiting a friend. His talents speak for themselves, and his ability to relate and comfort nerves make him stand heads above the rest. I highly recommend consulting Dr. Kelishadi - I'm happy I did!"- K.K. / Yelp / Jul 17, 2017
From birth to death, skin undergoes many changes and can show various problems and results. Elastin and collagen degrade over time. That process causes a loss of elasticity, support, and volume; this in turn leads to sagging, thinning, and wrinkling, especially in the face, the neck, and the hands. Also along the way, skin blemishes, discolorations, and other changes in texture and tone should be corrected. Nonsurgical or laser options may be preferred.
- Skin Care Analysis: Your skin care begins during our consultation with a personal and full analysis of your skin and its problems. From there we will pinpoint which of our procedures and/or products will furnish the most-effective and aesthetically pleasing solutions for you.
- Nonsurgical Individualized Skin Care Treatments: Beyond surgical treatment, laser resurfacing, and fillers, which are addressed on other pages, we have other options. Depending on your skin condition and/or expectations with treatment, we can also use chemical peels, facials, microdermabrasion, or top-of-the-line custom-tailored skin products to treat and improve the impression of:
- stretch marks, under-eye circles, acne or surgical scars, enlarged pores and facial lines
- sun-damaged, excessively oily, or unevenly-textured skin; lax skin of the face and neck
- various types of skin blemishes, such as age spots (or sun spots), red/yellowish/white spots or bumps (milia), freckles, melasma, rosacea, and small facial veins
- Certain creams can lighten dark pigmentations and discolorations to restore skin tone and clarity while also making skin look younger and brighter.
