5 out of 5 stars Kybella

Extremely Happy

I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Rivkin and Westside Aesthetics. I have been in for laser treatments, fillers, botox and Kybella. I initially met with Dr. Rivkin for Kybella, I have since had two rounds of Kybella and am beyond excited with the results. Dr. Rivkin is very knowledgeable, understanding, and easy to talk to. I inquired about several different services and he did not...

1 out of 5 stars Juvederm

Waste of Money! - Los Angeles, CA

So disappointed! Total waste of $2,500! I wanted to get tear trough fillers because I was suffering from hollowness and I was tired of looking exhausted all of the time. I did my research and seeing as this is a notoriously tricky area I decided to go to Dr. Rivkin because he is supposed to be a top of the line injector and an expert. He injected juvederm in the tear trough and voluma in...

5 out of 5 stars Injectable Fillers

Tune Up - Brentwood, CA

What a great find.! I've been getting fillers for about 5 years now but always looked overdone. I read reviews on Dr. Rivkin and decided to try it one more time since everyone really liked him. I did under eye, lips, cheeks and Botox. I feel like I look 5 years younger natural results. Really sweet staff and knowledgable on the services. Feeling confident and grateful and highly recommend.

5 out of 5 stars Botox

The absolute Best!

I did Botox for my 11's and could not be happier! I have been going to Westside Aesthetics for a couple of years now for my Botox treatments and it's perfect every single time! The office is great and the staff are so kind. I always have a great experience each time I go there. They're awesome!

5 out of 5 stars Voluma

Non Surgical Chin with Voluma - Brentwood, CA

I went to see Dr. Rivkin because he had been highly referred by a friend of mine. I've had fillers done before but not in my chin area and have always thought about doing it. I of course was hesitant but after looking at their website and the before and after pictures I liked how no one looked over done. Dr. Rivkin himself thought I was a great candidate for this treatment and assured me...

5 out of 5 stars Eye Bags Treatment

Under Eyes

I went to Dr. Rivkin to have him fix my under eyes. I wanted to get rid of the dark circles under my eyes because I thought it made me look tired. He injected Juvederm to fill in the hollow and I'm really happy with the result. He said it will last years and I feel like it looks really natural. No one knew I had anything done but people keep telling me I look better. Dr. Rivkin and his staff...

5 out of 5 stars Botox

35 Year Old Lawyer - Needed a Little Pick Me Up After Many Late Nights Working - Los Angeles, CA

I got Botox on my forehead, the space between the eyebrows, and in the chin. Apparently when you get older, the chin skin moves a lot more when you talk. I never noticed that before, but it's one of the signs of ageing that people register in others without really realizing it. I also had some fillers put in my cheeks to compensate for lost volume, which was causing the appearance of...

5 out of 5 stars Fractional Laser

Happy & Satisfied Patient, Fantastic Doctor! - West Los Angeles, CA

I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Rivkin and his amazing, friendly & caring staff @ Westside Aesthetics! Dr. Rivkin is a highly skilled Doctor who educated me very well, made solid recommendations for my cosmetic skincare concerns & put my mind at ease during my treatments. I had a successful Fraxel and a non-surgical blepharoplasty. I feel like myself only with better...

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Non Surgical Nose Job in fifteen minutes

Dr. Rivkin gave me a new nose in fifteen minutes. He added some long lasting temporary filler and gave me the nose bridge I've always wanted. It was amazing! His office is beautiful and clean, which is always nice to walk in to. He is kind and has a gentle touch, and an artistic eye. Thank you Dr. Rivkin!

5 out of 5 stars ArteFill

The Best on the West-Side!

Dr. Rivkin and his entire staff are amzing. Not only are they detailed oriented, they provide a safe and comfortable environment. The office is spa like and I will continue to see them for my "touch-ups". I have had Botox and fillers.
