Dr. Rivkin is excellent...he is honest, highly competent, and very experienced. There are many things I would like done, but he assured me they were not necessary. I like that, because my overly vain friend has made me feel as though I need everything redone in order to just be "acceptable". He could have very easily said yes to everything, which would have been very expensive, but he didn't. And that, to me, says everything you need to know.
I started seeing Dr. Rivkin at Westside Aesthetics just before I took my PhD exams at UCLA. He first gave me botox to undo that tired, overworked and over-stressed appearance I gained during graduate school. Everyone complimented me on how relaxed I looked at graduation! I see Malia, the aesthetician every month for general skin maintenance with the acne fighter facial. I haven't had a breakout since. Nurse Natalie Bland gave me an IPL photofacial which completely obliterated redness around my nose and cheeks. My appearance is now rejuvenated without that plastic or frozen side effect that is typical of so many other big name cosmetic dermatologists. Most recently, I had Dr. Rivkin give me Juvaderm to eliminate the deep lines around my mouth and soften the the puffiness under my eyes. Dr. Rivkin and his staff are the most personable and unpretentious group in the aesthetic spa business. Every time I call to book an appointment I feel like I am calling friends. The girls at the front desk are always willing to work with my schedule and I never feel hurried or rushed out when my appointment is finished. I have recently started using the Westside Aesthetics cleansing and moisturizing products, which I like even better than the Is-Clinical line. I HIGHLY recommend this spa for anyone who wants an honest Doctor and the most highly trained, caring spa staff in the West LA/ Beverly Hills/ Santa Monica area.
