Welcome to Los Angeles, famous for its sun, surf, celebrities, and Non- Surgical alternatives to plastic surgery! Because of Dr. Rivkin’s innovative non-invasive cosmetic practice, Westside Aesthetics has become a popular new destination for people flying in from out of town, state, or country. For this reason, we have a car service available to provide transportation to and from the airport for our out of town patients. This service is based on availability, so please call us ahead of time to make arrangements.
Even if you don’t live in LA you can experience the latest trends in total beauty rejuvenation while you are in the legendary City of Angels. When you make an appointment at Westside Aesthetics you can be assured that Dr. Rivkin will make you and your procedure a priority. He will personally make sure that you are satisfied with your results before you leave town.
Westside Aesthetics is located just off the airport highway (405) in the town of Brentwood. A variety of restaurants, coffee shops and high end boutiques are a few blocks away by foot. We are only 4 miles from Beverly Hills, 5.5 miles from the beach at Santa Monica and 7.5 miles from Hollywood. As a patient visiting us from out of town, you’ll have a variety of the best shopping, dining, and sightseeing choices at your fingertips, helping turn your experience into a relaxing getaway or exciting family holiday. Our office is near the picturesque UCLA campus, the landmark Fox Village Theater, the Hammer Museum and Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery (resting place of legends including Marilyn Monroe, Dean Martin, and Natalie Wood). Just a few miles further away you’ll find world-renowned attractions like the Getty Center, Mann’s Chinese Theater, and the Hollywood Bowl. For the young and young at heart, Disneyland is a short, scenic car trip away.
Before Your Visit
Patients visiting us from out of town are encouraged to contact us at least one month before you are scheduled to arrive in Los Angeles. If you are flying in without advance notice don’t hesitate to call, as there may be a cancellation or time slot available for you. Normally a consultation is recommended before any non-surgical or laser procedure to assure safety and determine personal goals. You will be asked to fill out an incoming patient form and provide your past and present medical history. Please include any concerns or special questions you may have. If an in person consultation is not possible Dr. Rivkin will schedule a time to consult with you via e-mail, skype, msn messenger, or telephone. You will be asked to send in recent digital photos of yourself, highlighting the areas of your face or body that you would like to have Dr. Rivkin address. Photos should include both front and side angle views.
A complete estimate of services will be given to you before you schedule your appointment. The estimate will be as accurate as possible to avoid any last minute financial questions and anxiety about expense. We gladly accept credit cards, cash, and money orders. A variety of financing options are available for those that need them. To ensure the date and time of your visit you will be asked for your credit card number. No deposit will be charged on the card – it is only to secure the appointment.
We will make sure that your appointment with Dr. Rivkin will be timed in the best possible way so that you may enjoy the most of what LA has to offer, turning your out of town medical visit into a real holiday. For non-surgical procedures involving semi-permanent and permanent fillers we recommend that you plan to stay in the area at least 5 -7 days so that Dr. Rivkin can perform a post-procedure examination and touch-up if necessary.
Before you schedule the date of your appointment, you will be given special instructions on pre-procedure preparations if they are necessary. Most non-surgical enhancements are non-invasive, quick to administer, and require little to no downtime, however some treatments do require that you initially keep physical activity to a minimum, avoid direct sunlight, or apply topical ointments to accelerate the healing process. We will be happy to suggest a list of things to do in Los Angeles that will match your post-procedure recovery instructions and allow you make the most out of your time in our fabulous city.
