Okay, so I never really write reviews. However, I myself rely upon patients reviews when making a decision about a doctor, therefore I feel I need to contribute! First off, I am a professional female above the age of 35 and had been putting too many hours into work, sleeping too little and basically taking for granted that I was still young enough to bounce back the next day and look good. Well my friends, I looked into the mirror one day and suddenly noticed that my under eye area looked hollow, even my cheeks looked shadowy and empty. I was horrified!! I attempted to catch up on sleep and drink plenty of water, eat right. However after several weeks there was no improvement. I did some serious research about what could be done. I found Dr. Alexander Rivkin and scheduled an appointment to discuss options. Let's get right to the experience. He was such a fantastic listener, examined my face, and said here are the options you have available if you would like to proceed, or you can just think about it. He went through each option, discussed the pros and cons and then asked me if I had any questions. He didn't try to sell me some huge procedure or other. I asked a serious amount of questions..and then responded that I wanted the works...! He said no you don't need that, let's start with something that I think will give you the natural results you want, you don't need to spend that type of money. He ended up doing Voluma under my eye area and cheek area. It was like he reversed the hands of time 10 years. I looked so natural and back to my old self. Everyone kept commenting how well rested I looked. Anyways, I am now telling my friends that I had voluma treatment, so that they can also benefit from Dr. Rivkin if needed. I am more impressed by the fact that he is so conservative in his approach, he basically keeps you looking like you, but the great version of you. I am beyond happy. My Voluma is 8 months out and looks fantastic. I was told this filler lasts about two years. I am going to look to upload some pics because I think my result are fantastic. Best of all I walked out feeling like this was not some salesman, he was not interested in maxing out my wallet, he has integrity which is unusual for doctors in the world of aesthetics (think Dr. 90210). Highly recommended!!! Great experince.

Professional, talented and with an eye for achieving the natural. He asked me questions about what I wanted to achieve, and listened with interest. He did not rush through my appointment. Overall, extremely talented clinician.
