The entire thing takes about 20 minutes. Amazing results! I’m admittedly quite vain, so I’m very happy with the results. It allows me to focus on the important treasures of life: family, friendship. For the rest of my life, I will think of Dr. Rivkin and the office staff- Karen, Gina, and April especially- as family. They will treat you with genuine warmth and respect. I highly recommend, especially to anyone- men particularly- who might be hesitating. Suck it up, swallow your pride, and prepare to be pleasantly surprised and amazed! I would give Dr. Rivkin and the Westside Aesthetics crew 5,000 stars if I could. I love them, and so will you.


Dr. Rivkin has a very welcoming manner and at the same time is also really meticulous, maybe even perfectionist. He also is sincerely motivated to help people and seems to derive great satisfaction from improving his patients’ lives.


This is the first and only Yelp review I’ve ever written. I am normally a private person but am compelled to rave about Westside Aesthetics. Dr. Rivkin is absolutely 100% gifted from God. I am a middle-aged man who had the non-surgical rhinoplasty (first with Radiesse, then Bellafill, the permanent filler) to fix a broken nose from several years ago. I flew into LA, and the office staff was so professional and kind to a guy who was equal parts uncomfortable and embarrassed. Well, it was one of the smartest decisions I ever made.


Very happy with my treatments and results. Stephanie was very patient informative and professional. Her knowledge and expertise were very comforting. Westside Aesthetics will be my #1 choice from now on for medical spa needs. Thank you Stephanie


The overall experience was great. I was nervous walking, however, the staff and Dr. Rivkin made it easy to feel at ease. As for the procedure, best money I’ve ever spent. I absolutely love my results!!

Shohreh Halimi

It was my first time with Stephanie and she was as fantastic as Maryam is. She is also very pleasant and professional. I had very good experience as usual in this facility. Thank you

Casey Thornton

I had a wonderful treatment and the staff is incredible! Very attentive, knowledgeable and very friendly! Thank you so much!!!

Raquel Mondin

Dr Rivkin has been my doctor for over 10 years. He’s the best. Period. The manager Karen and the staff are always so helpful and truly care. I’ve recommended close friends and they, too, now rant and rave about Westside Aestetics.

Lisa Doran

I felt very relaxed. Every option was explained in detail before I had any procedures done. I am pleased with the results. I am anxious to bring my daughter in on Friday to have her procedure done. I definitely would highly recommend Westside Aesthetics. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Jasmine Kim

Always professional and always on point!!!

Kim Scarritt

It’s always a great day when I’m going to Westside Aesthetics. I feel so well taken care of by Dr. Rivkin. His entire staff are consistently welcoming , knowledgeable and friendly. The office is warm and relaxed with a family feel , while they attend to business in a most professional manner. Dr. Rivkin’s work is like no other. His artistry continues to amaze me. I trust him implicitly. My experiences at Westside Aesthetics are always 100 % positive and I know that yours will be too.


The staff was so friendly and knowledgeable. I enjoyed my experience very much.

Barbara Barron

Appointment was on time. Dr. Rivkin was very kind and understanding, as was his nurse staff.

Rickey Burris Jr.

Assessment=Excellent Diagnosis=Excellent Planning =Excellent Implementation=Excellent Evaluation\Goal=Excellent I highly recommend Dr. Rivkin, and his medical team to anyone who wants a well experience team for your Medical/Spa, and Facial Enhancement need.


I’m so happy with the results! I look less tired and less mean. Not like I’ve “had work done”. The professionalism with the desk staff is top notch too! They are really friendly and kind.


The warm, friendly, and efficient administrators made the initial visit feel super welcoming then both the service with my treatment was excellent. I’m very pleased with my experience – Thank you


The team was very professional and did an excellent job. I would highly recommend and will be back!


Superb everything Staff is extraordinary Dr Rivkin a star Thank you


I absolutely love Stephanie Paige. She’s amazing. Extremely talented, with a fantastic eye; professional, knowledgeable. And really nice. Will definitely return to her.


By far the best service uber ever received. sarah was incredibly kind when i called to set up my consultation. everyone was all smiles when i walked in, it has a great atmosphere. the RN i saw, Nathalie (forgive me if i misspelled your name) was very informative and patient and more than willing to answer any questions i had. while getting my lips done she continuously asked if i was okay, making sure i wasn’t feeling any pain or discomfort. there was minor bruising but that’s nothing out of the ordinary, just put on some nude lipstick and you couldn’t even tell. will definitely be coming back and soon!

Kairi Saan

Maryam, PA-C, did an excellent job with Botox. It was quick and comfortable, and most importantly the results look great.

Sheera Ehrig

The staff was extremely helpful! I was offered water after my bike ride as well as fruit snacks because my blood sugar was low. The estheatician and the fractal laser nurse were very informative and made me feel at ease. I am definitely considering getting a chemical peel from West Side Aesthetics.


I was well taken care of and really appreciate the bedside manner. I look forward to returning!


Great experience! Dr Cohen made me feel at ease.


Dr. Rivkin and his assistants were very kind and made me feel at ease for my first visit. I am so pleased with my results so far, Dr. Rivkin listened to my concerns and made my eyes look more vibrant and refreshed!

Trystan Martin

I was very glad that Dr Rivkin took the time to fit me in, didn’t make me wait forever and listened to my concerns and addressed them head on. I really appreciated that he didn’t try to act like everything looked perfectly fine, and he listened and looked at the pictures that I had to demonstrate the issue, and that he reassured me that sometimes with the under eye area it takes a bit of finessing to get it just right with the filler. He was concerned and proactive and that is what I like to feel from my doctor. The procedure with him is pretty expensive, so I was glad that it came with good customer service because I would have been very upset if I had to pay even more. Anyway, I think my tear trough area already looks better but I will wait the requisite 2 weeks and hope for the best. :)

Tracy Bercu

Stephanie is wonderful! She does great work and was very calming when I was nervous about my procedure.

Cyntha Twedt

Upon entering this place of business I knew it was a business that valued its customers and was professional and welcoming! The Staff was amazing, with upbeat personalities, and I immediately felt a warm connection. I am big on “quality” and “professionalism” and believe “quality…recognizes quality”. I definitely made a wonderful discovery when finding this Business and Dr. Rivkin’s amazing expertise and wide array of services! I will definitely be recommending this business to colleagues and friends!


I could not be more excited about this spa and their entire staff! After a lot of research over a long period of time I decided to set an appointment with Dr. Rivkin. Turned out our schedules conflicted and I wound up working with Dr. Cohen instead. I’m so happy I got to meet and work with him. He sat and got to know me for the longest time before even discussing what I was hoping to have done. The counter staff -Heather, Brenda, and April who all helped me through the entire process and were all so wonderful – told me he likes to spend a lot of time with each client and I’m so happy he did. The entire process honestly just felt like I was having coffee with a friend. He then spent just as much time talking about the procedure I was hoping for and walked me through every question and every option – genuinely taking interest in my concerns instead of trying to sell me on anything unnecessary or get me in and out of his chair as quickly as possible. The result is beautiful! He couldn’t have been more humble or caring and I truly enjoyed being around him. Having a good experience with something has never been a big deal to me as long as the work or end result is quality – this place is so fantastic because the work is of the highest quality and as an added bonus the experience was too.

Joanne Takemoto

Excellent! Great treatments, great service and always punctual!

Ana Mihajlovic

I had a great experience. The office was very clean and serene, and the staff were all very kind and attentive. I would definitely recommend Westside Aesthetics to others and I will definitely be back!


Dr Rivkin is a true leader and expert in his field. I’m so happy with his work! He is the best out there for non surgery approaches to correcting imperfections.

Heather Davis

Friendly staff, comfortable atmosphere, Dr. Cohen is very professional and guaranteed to make you laugh!

Kim Scarritt

I’m an extremely detail oriented type person and very particular in everything I do. So , of course I researched tons of the best recommended doctors in town over a period of time and consulted with all. Some were higher profile than others , but all were highly recommended by people who used them repeatedly and praised their work. Choosing a doctor to work on your face for the first time can be nerve wracking to say the least. They all have great reputations but each doctor , office , and staff have a different vibe about them. I was looking for all of the variables on my list to be 100% what I needed to feel sure that “this was the one”. Everybody’s priority list is different. Everyone’s comfort level is different. For me, I absolutely wanted a top notch artist in creating natural results , of course I wanted to be in safe professional hands , and I wanted to feel comfortable with their personality so that I would be able to easily communicate and feel at ease with my doctor. Some of the office experiences I had while consulting and looking for a doctor were not very enjoyable. Fake smiles , snobby personalities or pushy staff made me not want to coming back , so those experiences were crossed off my list. I rust my instincts very much , so I trusted that eventually I would be able to find the best doctor for me without compromising anything on my want and need list. I knew I would know it when I found it …if that makes sense. I cannot tell you enough how glad I am that I took my time until I found that perfect doctor. Dr. Rivkin came highly recommended to me for his extraordinary expertise in achieving natural results which was high on my list. I am NOT AT ALL a fan of needles and was super anxious and scared. All a waste of time because Dr. Rivkin is so good at what he does and how he does it. Piece of cake even for a big baby like me. Dr. Rivkin’s zen like personality combined with a great sense of humor put me immediately at ease and made me feel comfortable to ask any questions that popped into my mind. He’s absolutely the best for any first time patient like myself and in addition to his artistic talents you will feel safe and very well taken care of , before..during..and after your procedure. The staff in Dr. Rivkins office is by far the best in many ways. They are consistently friendly , extremely informative and helpful with any questions or concerns you might have. The staff is authentic. They care and it shows. I was especially impressed with the generous amount of patience they have and the level at which each staff member is sufficiently informed. This was not my experience in other offices I visited. Example ….When an assistant has to leave the room to get answers to your questions , it leaves you with feelings of uncertainty to say the least ! After many months of tedious research looking for the right doctor , choosing Dr. Rivkin for my cosmetic procedures was absolutely THE BEST decision I could have ever made. I trust Dr. Rivkin completely. I feel very lucky that I did not use another doctor before I went to see him. He’s extraordinarily gifted , tells you to call him if you’re having a problem and actually means it , and he’s a total joy to be in the room with while his gifted eye for balance and beauty are carefully working on you ! Give yourself a Dr. Rivkin gift at Westside Aesthetics’s and you will not be disappointed!


Very happy with the treatment. professional and friendly atmosphere. I feel well taken care of.


Always a pleasure to come in and get personalized attention that feels thoughtful, never rushed. I am a picky patient.. but leave feeling better every single time.


Super happy with the service and my results!! I’ve had to forgive myself for constantly admiring the work you’ve done in the mirror!


Stefanie is a GODDESS! The entire staff is amazing — the receptionists are warm and incredibly helpful (and even go out of their way if you need them to). You can tell that people enjoy working there and care about the patients. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!

Jennifer Adams

I always enjoy my visits there. (except for the traffic going back east.LOL) The girls on the front desk are delightful and helpful and friendly. Dr. Rivkin is an artist in my opinion. I have always had good experience with any appointments or procedures with the with the nurses too.

Alanna Imperial

Dr. Cohen is amazing! I will never go anywhere else!


Dr. Rivkin is gifted by God. I will always be grateful for his help. I also have high regard for everyone in the office. Being there is like visiting friends and family, which is how I see Gina and Karen. Thank you very much.

Olivia Bitner

The staff is very attentive. My entire experience was comfortable and pleasant. Maryam is great! The botox for TMJ was practically painless.


It’s nice to have a doctor actually say you don’t need something done, rather than be intent on driving up sales.

Dawn Patton

I did a lot of research on the internet for a cosmetic doctor about my permanent bruising and uneven under eyes due to fillers. I made an appointment with Dr.Rivkin for a consultation based on reviews. Although I didn’t like waiting over an hour after my appointment time, at all, It was worth the wait. Dr.Rivkin spent the time LISTENING and asking questions regarding my eye. Instead of telling me he could fix or correct my under eye issue, for $$$$. He felt my issue required a specialist who really would know better and possibly correct my issue. I am African American, therefore my case may have required a different approach and treatment because of my brown skin and possible genetics. Kudos X 1 million for Dr.Rivkin. It wasn’t about taking my money but I felt he was acted with responsibility and with integrity. That’s huge to me. Thank you very very much Dr. Rivkin. I super appreciate you.

Monica Vasquez

Everyone, is very pleasant. Maryam takes good care of me. I always feels comfortable and all my questions are always answered. So I never feel nervous and it’s a very pleasant experience. I have referred several people to Westside Aesthetics.


Everything was quick, clean, friendly and professional! Thank you, Stephanie!

Alanna Imperial

Dr. Cohen is amazing and a life changer!


I’ve seen both doctors and both are excellent. The nurses and staff are very helpful and friendly too.

Rachel Peterson

Appreciate Dr Rivkin’s ‘touch up’ without charging me anything.

Mary Gleeson

God gave Dr Rivkin not only a gift to provide people like myself able to cope with age gracefully he just knows artistically -confidently what you need and I never thought that could be possible that I could look better-Gracefully. Thank you Dr Rivkin and your team! MFG


I have been a loyal patient at Westside Aesthetics since 2004 and could not recommend them more highly. The staff is exceptionally friendly, the doctors are professional and kind, and everyone takes the time to make sure you fully understand the procedures and what to expect.

Shaunt Kouyoumdijan

I can’t begin to describe just how wonderful my experience has been at Westside Aesthetics. Being a regular visitor for nearly a year now, I’m met each and every time by a wonderful staff of sweethearts who take care of everything from start to finish, from thorough reminder calls to compassionate care in the office before a procedure. I basically feel like family every time I walk in those doors, its just a happy place full of wonderful people. Dr. Cohen is possibly one of the most genuine men you’ll meet on the planet, is an absolute professional at what he does, extremely patient and understanding, so much fun to be around, and takes his time working on whatever you would like to have worked on just as you want it. He’s worked a Michelangelo on me, and I can’t recommend him enough! You can’t choose a better place to be taken care of and look your best. Thank you Westside!!! :)

Debbie Flachere

Excellent safe care. Overseen by two very experienced dermatologist. Nurse Stephanie is highly skilled and can be trusted 100%. High standards and great staff-patient respectful communication. Don’t think twice if you are looking for a facility that does great work for the skin, like Botox, fillers, laser hair removal etc. This is not a surgery center. I highly recommend it and I am a registered nurse with over 35 years of experience in critical care. I’m picky.

Lynn Hylen

I feel that Dr. Cohen really listens to what you want and cares about you as a person.

Tracy Obrien

Stephanie is always great!!!

Veronica Cusimano

Dr. Rivkin is amazing. I wanted to fill out my cheeks a little without looking fake and plastic and he delivered. Thank you Dr. I love my face.


Best team in the world of aesthetics. Knowledgeable, kind, compassionate, and very personable. State of the art equipment and facility.

Jasmine Kim

Always friendly and always professional!!!


This was my first time getting any form of injectables. Stephanie was amazing! She was warm and kind. She made me feel at ease. She was very patient and thorough in answering all of my questions and in explaining the whole process to me. The receptionists were very friendly. All and all I was very pleased with the client service and the end result looks very natural and youthful, not too overdone. I will definitely be recommending Westside Aesthetics to my friends.


I must first start by saying I HATE needles and have anxiety when it come to even drawing blood, but I trust and feel more at ease with him than any other injector that I have been to. Dr. Rivkin is the best in his field for three reasons: you can barely feel his injections, he takes the time to figure out what he is going to use on your face to optimally achieve your aesthetic goals and has a good eye. I have gone to people closer and cheaper to me but always regret not taking the extra time and spending the extra money to see Dr. Rivkin. He understands subtlety, balance and provides a very natural result.


Always treated with respect and understanding of my needs and desires.

Patty Phillips

I think Stephanie is fantastic and knows what she is doing.


The staff at Westside is a very caring and professional team that makes my experience great every single time. Stefanie is a special person and incredible nurse who I trust implicitly. She is compassionate, smart and precise. The people, and not the procedures, are the reason I come back and send all of my friends and family. My mom feels the same way and you have convinced a person who had never had more than a facial at 65 years, gain confidence and take 15 years off her face. You treat us both with kindness and respect and we will always be loyal because of that. Thank you.

Tom Seufert

Had a great experience with my last visit. Thank you to everyone on the staff and Dr. Rivkin.

Adilene Torres

First time going for an appointment there & everything went perfect! Great location & staff . Felt very comfortable being there. Everything went quick. Dr. Rivkin is very experienced made me feel like i was in good hands i could definitely trust his work. I would recommend for a patient to do their own research before that way you’re aware on what you’re going for!


Dr. Cohen is a wonderful man! He truly cares about his patients and works with you on tackling any concerns you may have. Absolutely loved how my Non-Surgical Nose Job turned out and I will be returning to him in the future.

Phalisa Tumblin

Dr. Rivkin, and his staff were very friendly and welcoming I enjoyed the lovely view from where his office is located.


I’m continually impressed with the services of Dr. Rivkin and his staff @ Westside Aesthetics! I highly recommend to all.


Dr. Rivkin is highly skilled, compassionate and artistic! The staff that I’ve met so far Sarah, Brenda, Gina and Heather are professional, caring and make you feel “at home.” Expression lines that can make the face look tired and/or angry are reduced. The face is restored and looks younger and refreshed. Many other excellent procedures are available. The procedures are budget friendly and minimally invasive. No need to resort to the desperate measures taken by the Oscar Wilde character Dorian Gray.

Samantha Batt

Very friendly staff, great doctors. Got amazing results. Non-Surgical Nose Job was painless! Would refer to a friend.


Dr. Rivkin is gifted by God. I will always be grateful for his help. I also have high regard for everyone in the office. Being there is like visiting friends and family, which is how I see Gina and Karen. Thank you very much.


Dr. Rivkin and his assistants were very kind and made me feel at ease for my first visit. I am so pleased with my results so far, Dr. Rivkin listened to my concerns and made my eyes look more vibrant and refreshed!


I am not sure about the effectiveness of the service that I received as of yet, but I am definitely pleased with my service provider.. She was great!

Tanya Williams

Excellent Service!!!

Chantal Veale

Clean beautiful clinic. Kind helpful staff. Dr. Rivkin is very experience, knowledgeable and current.


Always feel comfortable and well attended at Westside Aesthetics!

Debbie Liebert

Pleasant experience from beginning to end. Appointment was on-time, immaculate office, friendly and professional staff. Highly recommend!

Zara Barrie

I loved Westside Aesthetics so much, I can’t even express how amazing the experience was. I had my lips enhanced, and I’ve never felt more beautiful and confident. The results are so natural too—the only feedback I’m receiving is how much “better” I look. I will be going back here for life, I totally trust Dr Rivkin and the entire staff was sweet and supportive.

Judy W

Thank you, Westside for your professional,service – from the front desk, photo and numbing experience, And my service from Nurse Stefani. There are not enough complementary words in the dictionary to express how stellar Nurse Stefani is. Her customer service skills are welcoming, friendly, She is excellent in her skill and knowledge. In all she does!


I’ve seen both doctors and both are excellent. The nurses and staff are very helpful and friendly too.

Lea L

Great for migraines Tmj. Beauty And honest about outcome and length of Last treatment!


“Dear Dr. Rivkin,

I just wanted you to know how happy I am with the results of my latest treatment, especially with the lower 1/2 face. I look so much less worried (and a lot younger); the deep grooves I had on the upper forehead are gone too. Thank you for serving my desire to get rid of them! Great Job!!!”


I was just in Indianapolis seeing my mom and she spoke so fondly of you, I wanted to relay the sentiment.

She really is grateful for all your honesty, professionalism and really just sweet nature. I am too, thank you!

I also wanted to share that she looks amazing. The Ulthera has really done wonders.

Here is a pic of her below…thought you would want to see. ; ) Her eyelids have lifted a good bit!


I just wanted to thank you again for a really lovely experience yesterday. You were kind, patient and did EXACTLY what I was looking for…. I can tell, even at this early stage, that the Botox is so much better than my previous experience. The Juvederm on left side is perfect and the right hand side is great too, perhaps just needs a touch more… I’ll come back in a couple of weeks and get your opinion.

Again, I’m so happy to have found you. My results so far are outstanding!”


“I wanted softer, younger looking skin and was unhappy with the skin that was drooping above my right eye. I was becoming so self conscious about that that I started wearing sunglasses to hide it.

Dr. Rivkin spoke about the Active/FX procedure and said that it would probably help tighten the skin so I decided to try it.

The results were absolutely fantastic. Not only did my face look smother and tighter but it also eliminated almost 100% of the excess skin above the right eye. My skin looks and feels about 10 years younger.

And there has been another benefit. The frequency for Botox treatments has decreased dramatically.”


“Just made it home safely…Well, I just looked in the mirror. Is this how my face is going to look, but better in a few months??

My forehead looks poreless, smooth, and incredible!!! The dog bite scars…. Will it stay this way, because they have almost disappeared!!! On my cheek AND my mouth!!! My eyes are a bit puffy, but they look fantastic. I don’t want this to change! I want the swelling to stay! My cheeks look really great, too. I could see maybe one more treatment, and I will have the skin that I had when I was 10 years old!!! (I can’t stop using exclamation points, because I simply cannot believe how good I look). I’m a bit red, but that’s it. This may have just changed my life, and how I see myself. I want to cry and laugh, but I’m in too much shock and I’m afraid I will wake up and this will have gone away. This is too good to be true… Is it?

I just wanted to take the time to thank you for the services provided at Westside Aesthetics. My appointment was yesterday at 3:00pm.

My non surgical nose procedure seems to good to be true, the results are amazing! Dr. Rivkin is so good at what he does, there was no pain, no swelling, no downtime!

It’s hard to believe that such a simple procedure can be so life changing! I only regret not knowing about it before my wedding date.

Can’t wait for the one month follow up and hopefully the Artefill in a year.”


“First of all, I’d like to say thank you for the complimentary second office visit. I can tell that you take great pride in your craft and care about what your clients want :)

Thank you so much for your skilled craftsmanship and an eye for such fine work. I just love my new enhanced look (nose)! I’m definitely going for the permanent look…looking forward to seeing you again in a few months.”


“Thank God that not all doctor’s are the same, although to find a plastic surgeon that is kind, honest, and caring is like finding a diamond in a sea of burt coal, good doctor’s do exist and I am talking about Dr. Rivkin, he truly is amazing and he is nobody’s puppet! Most doctors have already been “tipped” off about me by dr evil, my last doctor, but Dr. Rivkin is an angel, and he is my only hope to ever fix my face again. He did such a wonderful job!

Thank you Dr. Rivkin, you did help me so much and you do change lives. At least, you did for me, If it wasn’t for you I would be sulking in my misery with the face to match and God knows how depressed i would still be if i still looked like i did when i entered your office.

I believe that my results prove that there are many diamonds in the rough, and since i was “a diamond” before a botched procedure by my previous doctor left me looking very rough indeed, you helped to bring out the beauty that nature intended me to have.

I don’t think that you have seen my before and afters, it took a while for my face to heal and the filler to adjust but the results are breathtaking and i would like for you to include them in my medical files, and to proudly affirm the quality of work you do for us patients. Thank you :)

OMG- I’m soooooo over the moon happy!! Dr. Rivkin did an AMAZING job on my face! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! I really appreciate everything you’ve done for me and all the help you’ve given me!! I’m just so happy! This DEFINITELY gives me the self confidence that I was looking for for next weekend! If I get this show I will have you guys to thank for helping me get it :) Now I wish I could get the laser done tomorrow!

Thanks so much again Karen and please tell Dr. Rivkin that I said thank you so much too!”

MR (London)

“I really like the shape of my nose, Dr. Rivkin is an artist! Im glad i traveled over 6000 miles to see him. He has to be the best in the world at this procedure, i wouldnt want anyone but the best touching my nose.”


“I also highly recommend Dr. Rivkin for any and all procedures. I have been seeing him for approximately 3 years and his work is magnificent!!”


“Dr. Rivkin’s 10 Minute Nose Job is “Great.” I suffered from Saddle Nose Deformity as a result of a mistake from a sinus surgery. Two reconstructs later and it still wasn’t right. After reading an article about Dr. Rivkin we flew to Los Angeles and he worked his magic on me. I came back for the scheduled touch-ups and return for visits every 6 months. Don’t be afraid of any procedure from Dr. Rivkin – this man is highly skilled.”


“I just got a voicemail from Dr Rivkin asking how I am following my non-surgical procedure on Friday. I REALLY am touched to have the doctor himself calling for follow-up! Please tell Dr Rivkin that I am doing very well and that as far as I can tell about 99% of the swelling has gone down already. The first 48 hours after the procedure my nose was quite tender and I could discern swelling (no discoloration though). However, none of this was apparent to others. Put simply: I was more self-conscious about the infected mosquito bite on my cheek than I was about the swelling of my nose!

What an ingenious way of treating people – Dr Rivkin is a 21st century Michelangelo of sculpture!

I look forward to my follow-up appointment in 10 days.”

Georgina G.

“Dr. Rivkin,

Just a word for suggesting Botox in my lip area on my last visit June 27th The difference and improvement was just outstanding. I am telling all my friends.

You are the Best.”


“Hello Dr. Rivkin,

I saw you for botox injections two days ago in the afternoon. I just wanted to say that this was the first time I have come out bruise free! Thank you for that. I love the results. I wish I would have found you sooner.

Thanks again!”

P. G.

“I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful service you gave me when I was in southern Cal a few weeks ago. You were the only office that responded to my email, and actually I’m grateful. I love my Fraxel & will plan more treatments. Thanks again for your professionalism, your friendly atmosphere and your patient care.


“It was so very nice to see you today. Thank you very, very much for all your help in making me beautiful!!! I am so very pleased with the laser treatment. I’m going to be your walking billboard. I’m looking forward to seeing you again soon.”


I would like to thank you very much for helping me get a better nose which gives me more confidence of myself. I like it so much that I don’t think I need a follow-up appointment, since I am in Houston and so far away from your place. Am I ready for Artefill for next year yet or do I have to wait for anything else? Again thank you very much and have a good day.”


“Hi Dr. Rivkin!

I have been meaning to write you and thank you again for giving me such solace. I know that I am in good hands! Although I am still a bit funny about taking photo’s at different events, I know with your help my confidence will only grow! I will do my best to come see you soon. Thanks again! And sending you and your family the very best!”


“I have had multiple jaw issues one of them being Bruxism which just served to make the rest of my jaw issues worse (the inability to talk or eat without severe pain). Although I have worn a night guard for many, many years I continued to grind. I had heard Botox might be helpful but was also told by my doctor that it wouldn’t. However, I eventually found Dr. Rivkin and upon watching the link to the ABC, Channel 7 TV segment I decided to give it a try.

It has really made a significant difference. I noticed the difference immediately and in the ensuing weeks it has gotten progressively better. I no longer wake up with a sore jaw and the muscles are definitely not in spasm like they were. I figure it didn’t happen overnight and it will take a while for the muscle to relax. Also my neck and scapula issues have reduced which was unexpected. My chiropractor did tell me that it was probably related to the Bruxism and apparently she was right.

Over the years I have tried multiple night guards ranging from $400 to $600, a total spent on guards of $1,500 and that doesn’t include the $5,000 I spent (out of my own pocket) for the ‘special guard’ that was supposed to re-align my jaw but didn’t work. Besides, before putting out that kind of money it makes more sense to try this less expensive method. I wish I had.

I can honestly say this has been a Godsend to me and hope that if you find others with this problem that you remember this and at least give them the information so that they have another option. Bruxism is also one of the main culprits in headaches.”


“I cannot say enough positive things about Dr Rivkin and his staff. I’m a guy, so getting any work done freaked me out! I definitely didn’t want to look like a lady, and everyone in the office was very understanding. I originally had the non-surgical rhinoplasty and was very happy with the results. No pain, no downtime, and MUCH more affordable than actual revision surgery. Now that I’m moving on up into my thirties, I’ve been back to visit a few times; and every time has been a great experience. I come away with natural looking results that all my friends are envious of. And I recently had new headshots done… for the first time in years I didn’t have to “photoshop” under my eyes. It’s like Dr Rivkin is real life photoshop!”


“Donna was amazing and so professional. I never felt nervous or surprised during the entire procedure.

Please pass along to her my gratitude.”


“Thank you so much for making my Fraxel treatment so easy. I can already see results from the treatment and I am so pleased!

You were very thorough and considerate from start to finish. The front desk staff was also a pleasure to deal with.

Thanks again, and see you soon!”


“Already I LOVE the Botox and juvaderm. You did an amazing job. Thank you once again Stefanie!! You have done so much for myself esteem in the last month. :)”

“Dr. Rivkin was one of the presenters at the 2011 Aesthetic Show in Las Vegas when I won my first award for best facial injectable enhancement. The comments he made about my work on stage were more valuable to me than the trophy. Also his instruction at the 2012 show, in the injectables hands on course, was excellent, and I really appreciate his time, patience, and sharing of knowledge. He gave me specific instructions on botox for TMJ, which was a technique that I had never done before. Thanks to Dr. Rivkin, my sister has finally gotten relief from the worst case of TMJ that I have ever seen. She has suffered severely for over five years and been to numerous specialists and tried everything short of surgery, which was recommended to her, but she was afraid. Now she has been pain free for two months for the first time in as long as she can remember.”


“Dear, Dr. Rivkin.

I can’t begin to tell you how thankful I am that I found you. It’s the first time in thirty years I don’t cringe when I look at my nose in the mirror. Your skill and artistic eye are truly fantastic. I look forward to the future when you can make the change permanent.”

“I first came to visit my daughter in California in 2013. I was a 65 year old woman who lived in Indiana and got regular facials but had never had a procedure beyond a facial on my skin. I have always walked regularly but wasn’t great with my diet and as a result had high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

My daughter encouraged me during my stay to meet with Stefanie, an amazing nurse at Westside Aesthetics to consult on my skin. I was timid to try anything new, including Botox, but willing to discuss it. I’ve been married for 40 years and just was used to looking ‘my age’ and feeling ok about it. I also am on a budget and can’t spend the kind of money I thought most could in Los Angeles.

After meeting with Stefanie and feeling so comfortable that I was in good hands, I decided to have Fraxel done on my full face and also Ulthera (face and neck). I actually enjoyed the procedures so much that before I left, I had fillers and Botox done as well as Fraxel on my chest. They were not as painful or scary as I had read about and the results were just incredible.

I went home feeling like a new woman and was inspired to take better care of my skin and my body. I began exercising with weights and trying spin classes. I also decided to not restrict calories but change the kinds of foods I was eating. I knew what I put in my body, impacted all of my organs including my skin. Westside Aesthetics had inspired me to be better inside and out and keep up my new look!

I started to see results from the work done at Westside Aesthetics and got better about my daily skincare routine. I got regular peels and facials and I planned a trip back the next year.

One year later and 15 lbs thinner, I came to Stefanie again and had Fraxel, Ulthera and Botox again. I also purchased more skincare product from Westside and joined my daughter in more workouts and healthy foods.

My new face and now body, without surgery, gave me a new look on life. I saw her doctor and was taken off my cholesterol meds and two of my blood pressure meds. I am getting attention from men at my gym and my husband compliments me often. I have more energy and am more social and can say, I am a happier woman now.

I turn 67 years old this year. I have now has lost 30 lbs and people say I look closer to my 50s. I can tell you that the investment on my skin and now my health is the best thing I have ever done in my life. I only wish I had started earlier!

Westside Aesthetics didn’t do all of this but they did inspire me to be better to myself. I hope to continue coming and seeing Stefanie every year and see a local doctor in Indiana for Botox and facials in between. I think Westside is the best doctor’s office I have been too and they are so nice and make you feel comfortable. I love visiting and hope to be back soon.”
