Patient Comments (2)
in Santa Cruz, CA |
I had complete satisfaction while receiving treatments with Dr. Pilest and his courteous and professional staff. I went in on my 60th birthday wanting to hear what the Dr. might recommend to soften some of the signs of aging on my face. First of all, he is so very kind and such a gentleman. He assured me that I "didn't need much" to enhance my looks, and made his recommendations. Everything he suggested was spot on, and the proof was in the result. He is extremely skilled at his craft. So happy!

Very short visit (5 minutes). If you're not going in for cosmetic-related skin conditions, I would recommend another provider.
