Maryam Younessi treats her patients as more than just another face. Able to perform many procedures, she cares deeply about patient health and about patient outcomes.
Maryam has been working in the medical field since 2003. She started her career educating patients about treatment plans and medical prescriptions and then went on to assist in radiology procedures. Her love for helping people look and feel better and her interest in women’s health led her to Westside in 2008.
For two years she worked closely with Dr. Rivkin as a medical assistant, helping him perform his renowned non-surgical cosmetic procedures and learning as much as she could each day. With her natural eye for beauty and her artistic skills it was clear to her that she was in the right place! She completed her medical training in 2010 and earned her licensure as a Physician Assistant.
Maryam has quickly established a reputation for her listening skills, her enthusiasm and her warmth. People feel at ease right away! Her holistic approach to cosmetic enhancements means she sees more than “just a face.”
Maryam is not only certified in Botox®, Radiesse®, Restylane®, Artefille® and Juvederm® injections but is also certified in the use of a variety of lasers. Her expertise ranges from skin resurfacing to skin tightening and she uses the Lumenis®, Candela®, Fraxel® and Thermage® lasers to achieve results. She applies her medical know-how and tender touch to create an overall beautiful look. “I also really love working with the lips to create a natural but sexy look that can really complement the whole appearance.”
When she’s not working for Dr. Rivkin, Maryam works at an Urgent Care facility where she specializes in Family Medicine.
During her free time she loves to eat at L.A.’s best new restaurants, enjoy good music, shop for great shoes and get a hard workout in her unique Spinning and Yoga fusion classes.
Maryam received her Bachelor’s of Science from University of California, Los Angeles in 2006 and went on to study medicine at Charles Drew University of Medicine where she received her Physician Assistant degree in 2010. Maryam is a master of aesthetic lasers and injectables, and her patients rave about her.
