I also felt I was "burned" at first but I Googled the "laser skin treatment side effects" and I learned that it is normal. Don't be so hard on Doctor Taheri, educate yourself on the process first, then make a judgement.

Here is a snipet from the news article below, for those of you who are unaware:

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
If your laser skin resurfacing treatment is done by a reputable surgeon there are usually few complications due to the laser therapy itself. However, everyone??s skin responds differently and there is a small risk of burning or marks from the heat of the laser, unwanted scarring, and pigmentation changes - either darkening or lightening of the skin. Rarely, laser treatment can set off a cold sore by reactivating the herpes virus that is dormant in the facial nerves.

After laser skin treatment there will be some mild swelling in the face, which may be uncomfortable for a time. Ice packs can help and mild painkillers such as paracetamol are all that??s usually required to keep the discomfort at bay. The skin will blister and scabs after treatment, and there is always a risk of infection, although an antibiotic ointment is used in the first few days to minimize the risk. Skin crusts need to be left alone and never picked off. They will come loose from the skin by themselves after about ten days, revealing new pink skin underneath.

The skin remains pink or even red for a few weeks after laser skin resurfacing, and ointments or creams will be provided by the surgeon to help these subside quickly. They may persist for up to six months in some people ?? but after three weeks concealing make up can be applied without damaging the skin.

The new skin is very susceptible to sun damage, which can cause burns and permanent pigmentation changes. Sunbathing must be avoided for at least six months, and if you have to go outside during a sunny day, the advice is to wear a sun visor or hat with a large brim, and to thoroughly cover your face with a high factor sun block ?? factor twenty-five at the very minimum.

Their staff is disorganized and you really have to watch their bililng - but Dr. Abaza is very caring and will work with you if you have had skin cancer to be proactive. I have been to many dermatologists and he has been the only one to offer me techniques to prevent the disease, not just cut it out when it happens. He is caring and kind but you do have to manage your own health issue - you have to keep watch over your own body and point out the moles and areas that concern you. He has done many biopsies and they have left minimal scarring. I would recommend Dr. Abaza specifically. Dr. Taheri is great too but it's rare when you see him, he's mostly now at other offices. They have Saturday appts. which work well with my schedule. I have been to most clinics in the SCV and these folks have taken the best preventive care of me, hands down. My incidence of skin cancer ceased once I started coming here, and it's been about 5 yrs. now.

AWFUL!!
I had a very simple problem about my skin. I saw him and he gave me a prescription. IT DIDN'T WORK. I saw him again. He gave another medication. And guess what, IT DIDN'T WORK TOO.
I lost 4 weeks and I paid lots of money to him and his medications. And it didn't work at all. When I went his office to tell my complaints, he told his assistant to make an appointment. Can you believe that? I have to pay him to tall my complaints about his treatment!!
Then I waited him in his office lounge, and when I tried to talk with him, he said me "GET OUT OF MY OFFICE".
Can you believe that? He is not only an UNSUCCESSFUL doctor but also a very RUDE one.
When I told him that I su him, he said "GO SU YOUR GRANDMA"
SUCH A RIP OFF

Dr Taheri is a very talented cosmetic dermatologist. I went to his office only wanting restylane in my upper lip, but he suggested some botox around my eyes and a chemical peel. I was THRILLED with the results. I have never looked better. I don't think he is just money hungry, but he has a good eye and isn't afraid to tell you what he thinks will help you most. He wasn't a hard sell. I did not feel pressured to do any of the procedures that he suggested. I will definitely be going back to see him again, and many of my coworkers and family members are seeing him now also.

Pros: great advice

Great experience going to Dr Taheri's office last week.
Did my research on the v-beam lazer before. I found average cost is 300$ a treatment and it takes on average 5-8 treatments for moderate rosacea.
I was diagnosed by another derm with rosacea mild/moderate. I ofcourse deem it AWFUL!! Dr Taheri impressed me and was professional. Starting with his staff, others who have spoken of negative experiences could not be talking about the girls in Valencia cause they were friendly and organized.
So there i am excited to get the v-beam, I waited 4 mins after i filled out the first time client stuff. Once in the room waited maybe another 4 mins til he came in. The girl who brought me to the room said that Dr Taheri will want to give the initial consult before a decision on v-beam. He came in and he was very relaxed not pushy. he looked at my skin and called my rocesea mild , talked about what treatments i have used, he approved of the two gels i use and said the v-beam will infact help me. YES! He did the treatment himself and walked me through it, what to expect, that each person has a level of treatment to be used and he'd start on a low setting to see how my skin responds, he even said " ok i will start here", and checked on me asking if i was doing alright a few times. we talked throughout the 15 mins of treatment, him answering questions i had, and joking. After the treatment i asked him how many treatments I will need, remember i already did my home work. He said i would most likely need 4 or 5.~ geesh he has a client willing to do 8! Plus He only charges 250$. And OFCOURSE he is going to talk about lazers he specializes in lazers thats why i picked him!
I talked with him for another 5min after the treatment. He was not in a hurry to leave and I was actually the first one to take a step towards the door. That night, as he explained, i felt like i had a sun burn and the next day had some swelling, day 3 look great and see a difference. I'm excited to go back.

I get the impression this medical office is only there to make money. It is difficult to see the same doctor twice and the office staff is incapable. They seem to offer an extensive list of cosmetic treatments, and actual medical conditions seem to take a lower priority at their office. The doctors are not knowledgeable regarding insurance coverage of the various prescribed medications, so it takes several calls/visits to get prescriptions that are covered by the large insurance carriers.

If you need your skin really examined, this is not the place to go. Unless you point things out, they don't investigate any further. Anyone with a history of skin cancer should be thoroughly examined and this did not happen here.

I had a small procedure done by one of their PA's and I thought he did a thorough job. He, as well as his assistant, answered all my questions and I felt they took the time needed to make me feel comfortable. The office was professional and courteous.

The first two times I visted the office I was pleased. During my recent visit the young ladies
who work the front desk were unorganized. I was told that my insurance card would be accepted.
After I entered the room to have the treatment done. I was told by another assistant that the card would not be accepted. I wish I had been told when I arrived and not left waiting. The assistant who applied the peel to my face was rude. If I am paying for service I would hope to receive assistance from someone who is pleasant. The previous young ladies who assisted me were wonderful! If any of these ladies came to my office I would treat them in a courteous manner. Some of the ;adies at the front desk should enroll in a diversity training course, and a customer service course. I will never return to Dr. Taheri's office again, i will
seek treatment with another facility.

If you have a choice, take it. This place did not meet my expectations for service or results. Check references if you decide to go.

If you need a dermatologist, visit LA Laser Center! You won't be let down, I promise. The sweetest staff, beautiful and sparkling clean office, perhaps EVERY service you can think of (from laser hair removal to lipsuction), all at a reasonable price. Dr. Taheri is very knowledgeable and provided me with the most effective treatments (even though they were cheaper than what I had originally asked for)! I HIGHLY recommend this clinic.
