Are you a patient of Ava Shamban, MD?
5 out of 5 stars Botox
Dr. Shamban is the best. There's no one else I'd let put a needle as close to my eye as she does. She opens up my left eye so that my eyes are symmetrical. I think Dr. Shamban is a magician. Thank you so much. I continually fill out these reviews but it never is reflected in my records to receive the discount.

One of the nicest ladies I have ever come across! She is so concerned over my well being and making sure I am comfortable. She discusses my results and progress, she also makes sure to adjust procedures to my needs.
5 out of 5 stars Bellafill
Dr. Shamban is the best of the best. This is how every experience at a doctor's office should be. Staff is warm and friendly, courteous, and on the ball. She runs a great shop. And every single doctor / practitioner in her office is the same way -- it must rub off! :)
5 out of 5 stars Active FX
I am now on day 6 after ACTIVE FX treatment on my face and DEEP FX under my eyes. I can't tell you how amazed I am with the results! My skin looks better than when I was 12 years old! No joke! I had a lot of sun damage and wrinkles under my eyes and it's all gone!! I almost can't believe my eyes. I was worried about doing it because I've read some bad reviews, but I am so happy I went...
3 out of 5 stars Total FX
Ava Shamban offers numerous laser procedures at her Santa Monica facility. The staff is very courteous and sympathetic to each patient's concerns and they will provide you with the most advanced treatments that are available, rather than pushing an outdated laser treatment on you in order to pay their out of pocket costs on buying a laser machine a couple of years ago that is no longer considered viable.
1 out of 5 stars Acne Scars Treatment
1 out of 5 stars Fraxel Laser
This rating based on my unpleasant experience with Dr Shamban. I went through totally worthless, very painful treatment FOUR TIMES by her recommendation. Top of that Dr Shamban did a traditional CO2 laser peel herself AT THE SAME TIME 2007 even she refused to perform this "the most effective laser peel" for me. I didn't get help for my scars until I walked out of her fancy office and went to see another doctor. Thank god I did it because my result of CO2 peel is amazing. I truly felt Dr Shamban tricked me and took my money for nothing so not cool:(
