In addition, his innovative non-surgical skin tightening procedures utilizing radio frequency (RF) technology has revolutionized facial rejuvenation and was recognized in the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Journal, affirming his status as a trailblazer in the realm of non-invasive skin tightening. Dr. Kornstein’s commitment to innovation extends to injectable rhinoplasty, a technique he has refined to achieve precise and natural-looking results, as well as peptide therapy for antiaging and cellular health, which he incorporates into his holistic approach to facial rejuvenation and longevity.
