When I noticed that my forehead was beginning to have these deep horizontal lines, I starting going to CosmetiCare for Botox and hydrofacials. I'd never had Botox before and am not really a "needle" person. My girlfriend told me to go to Tina, who just talked me through everything. The Botox was actually much less painful than I thought and also really quick. After three days I had no bruising or swelling and my forehead was perfectly smooth! I go to Tina about every three months now for my forehead and also around the eyes. Another treatment I get is the hydrofacial. I really love how it improves the texture of my skin. U think the prices at CosmetiCare are so reasonable, especially considering that many of the staff have medical backgrounds and because of the beautiful location on the water!

I had been getting Botox treatments for 10 years when I lived in Florida, mostly to feel good about myself and look well-rested. Since I moved out here, I've been going to CosmetiCare. Everything about the office is personable yet professional, and the office itself is beautiful. The place I had been going to in Florida was like an assembly line, and I only saw the aesthetician. At CosmetiCare, the doctor came in to chat with me about my results and concerns. I also get much better results here, especially with the space between my eyes. It probably takes two weeks to see the full results from a Botox treatment. I love that the results are gradual. I see results every day, and nobody asks if I've done something because it just looks so natural. People think I am 15 years younger than I am.

Since I was in my early 20's, my facial hair would grow so fast that even though I shaved in the morning, I'd get five o'clock shadow by 11 a.m. I'd also break out with ingrown hairs from the razor. I wanted to permanently solve this problem by removing all my face and neck hair with laser hair removal. And it's been successful. After many treatments, I'm only growing hair on some stubborn areas on my lip and chin. My face is looking and feeling much better as a result. Initially I went to Beverly Hills for the treatments, but then finally discovered CosmetiCare close by. CosmetiCare has been amazing. The techs are all knowledgeable and they do what's in my interest--they don't try to upsell, and have even discouraged me from treatments I've asked about that they think I don't need. For example, I went in for a laser skin treatment and said I wanted botox to remove my smile lines, and the tech advised waiting until after the laser skin treatment because I probably wouldn't need it. And she was right. It truly works. It not only tightened my skin, but removed the lines and made my skin look healthier and radiant. I've had many compliments from coworkers and friends about how young my face looks. I'm going to get laser skin treatment every year from here on out.

Since I'm in the entertainment industry, I have to stay on top of my appearance. I'm in my 40's and was starting to get one of those flaps underneath my chin, like a little pocket of fat. Dr. von Maur is with CosmetiCare, so that was an instant trust factor for me. He did my breast augmentation years ago and I loved how I looked. So I went for it with the Kybella at his recommendation. Kybela is an injectable used to reduce fat and shape the upper neck. I'm not going to lie, it was horrifically painful and I swelled up like a frog for the first few weeks, but the outcome is stellar. The fatty pocket is gone and there's no trace of a scar. Best of all, it lasts forever. It's well worth the pain.

I had a sort of mini-midlife crisis a few years ago just before turning 40 and even though my skin was healthy, I wanted to keep it that way and even improve it. I have an esthetician license, and I do outside sales, so looking younger is essential for my work. So I went to CosmetiCare's MedSpa. Kat is my favorite there. I was starting to get a small dent between my eyebrows and so she gave me Botox to relax that skin. I also lost a lot of weight and wanted some structure around my cheekbones, so Kat injected Juvederm. She takes the time to look at my face and ask me what I want. Her demeanor isn't salesy, but consultative. When I said I wanted to try a little Botox in my lips, she told me that the amount of units really wouldn't do what I wanted. So instead of charging me for work I didn't need, she was honest and said I didn't need it. I've come twice a year for four years now, and I get comments all the time that people think I'm in my early 30's. The prevention is helping me stay young and fresh without that awful frozen look.

I've been going to CosmetiCare for 20 years, since Dr. Niccole did my first breast augmentation and recently a mastopexy and implant exchange. Even though I have an athletic body, my breasts are big, but naturally saggy, so the surgeries have changed my life. My new boyfriend loves them. He couldn't find a scar, he couldn't believe I'd had them done. The doctors at CosmetiCare are the best in the world. I've referred more than 40 people to CosmetiCare, including my own mother, and I've heard nothing but glowing reports. The whole staff is amazing. Deena Fox who is a skincare specialist is one of the reasons I am getting skincare their now, too, and she is the reason I'm willing to drive such a long distance. She set me up with a microneedling and PRP for facial scar revision. I've had one procedure and I've seen a huge change, especially on the left side.

After wanting to get a nose job since I was 16, I finally got one, along with my sister who's 7 years younger. Our mom gave it to us as a Christmas and birthday gift combined. We inherited her big nose with the hump in the middle. She'd gotten her nose job years ago by university residents. They got the job done, but didn't really take care of her. We found out that even the UCLA residents would only see us for the surgery and then one follow up. So we went Dr. von Maur. He's been attentive and encouraging the whole way through. We've had 4 or 5 visits this year already. The CosmetiCare staff is also amazing. We feel loved by the whole office, and they call us "The Sisters." I especially love Nicole who is super funny and friendly. Dr. von Maur is very professional and serious, so my sister and I love to make him laugh. He always gave us pep talks, because I in particular was so nervous. First thing after the surgery, he assured me that my nose turned out perfectly. Everyone we know says we got the exact right shapes. I used to wear glasses to cover the hump in my nose, and now I'm wearing contact lenses. It's a whole new life.

I was feeling really old to the point where I didn't ever feel like going out anywhere, and I'm not actually that old, at 56. So I went to CosmetiCare and asked Dr. Niccole if he could fix the hollowness, the dark circles, smooth out some of the wrinkles on my face, and just give a little size to my lips. Technically, the procedure is called fat injections with laser resurfacing, but I didn't know that going in. Dr. Niccole it just perfectly. I look amazing--about 10 years younger. When I went back to work after two weeks, everyone told me how rested I look, but no one knew what I'd gotten done. The procedure was also was pain-free, for the most part. I had a little soreness in my abdomen where they took out the fat to inject in my cheeks. And I couldn't go out for three days to keep my face safe. It just felt like a slight sunburn.

After saving up for rhinoplasty for many years, I finally got it done. I knew I wanted Dr. Niccole of CosmetiCare to do my procedures, because I knew a few people who had gone to him and gotten beautiful results. I trusted his advice on the size and shape of nose that would best suit my face and look natural. The procedure went perfectly, and I'm thrilled with the results. I did have some bruising for a couple weeks, as I expected, but the nurses and staff were very good about giving me advice on how to care for it and what to put on it. I'm planning to go back and do lip injections and possibly a breast augmentation from Dr. Niccole.

I did a lot of research online and realized that as common as plastic surgery is, it's still an art. I found Dr. Niccole to be a real artist in addition to being an amazing surgeon. I was impressed by all the before-and-after photos of the procedure on the CosmetiCare website, and felt confident right that he could do the same for me. The staff at CosmetiCare were all attentive to my concerns. The anesthesiologist was great, because I was so afraid of the pain, but once the I.V. was in, I didn't remember a thing. Months later, I'm in great condition and love my new look.

After interviewing with several doctors, I chose Dr. Niccole at CosmetiCare to replace my saline implants from 10 years ago. I'm not a large woman, and my previous implants had made my breasts look so big that I wondered sometimes if people saw them before they saw me. They also felt hard, and slipped around in my armpits. Dr. Niccole listened to what I wanted and I was impressed with how quickly he assessed what to do. He replaced my old implants with the new kind that are a softer consistency that looks and feels more natural. He also selected a smaller size, a B cup, which fits my body much better. Three months after my procedure, I can report that the results are amazing!
