I couldn't be happier that I found Melinda at LA Skin Aesthetics. I've been going to her for laser hair removal and the results are great. I've been to many places for both electrolysis and laser, but nothing compares. The prices are unbeatable, the facility is great, and the procedure is painless! Melinda is so friendly and takes time to answer questions. So many places in LA are untrustworthy; this is definitely a diamond in the rough!

I contacted Melinda on a Sunday for Botox. She was fantastic: She took the time to talk to me and explain everything she would be doing. I liked her focus and attention to detail. This level of customer service for a quick Botox job was a first for me. She was meticulous with a needle and I will only go to her from here on out. It's great to find someone I can trust and has office hours that accommodate my busy work schedule. The parking in the building was super convenient. I was in and out.

Let's just say I am the biggest needle phobic ever!!!!! But when my much anticipated wedding approached and that annoying line in the middle of my forehead began nesting a home for itself, I went straight to Melinda. Lots of my friends go to her for treatments, so I knew she was super trustworthy. PAINLESS. That about sums up my experience at this office. No wonder all the girls at my office rave about Melinda. She truly has the best bed side manner and she gave me great anti aging recommendations w/o costing a fortune! Go here, your skin won't regret it!!!!

Melinda is the best!!! She is great at what she does and is so personable, professional, and sincere. Not to mention, her prices are very reasonable and she does not hard sell you at all. I've been going to her for laser treatments for more than a year now. Thank you yelp for helping me find her! I highly recommend - five stars!!

I go to Melinda for facials and Botox, because she uses products and procedures that are really effective, yet do not leave you looking like a Real Housewife. She is down to earth, friendly and charming, and I never feel like she is trying to sell me anything. She is a physicians assistant, and very informed about the services she provides, which is particularly important for injectables. Her knowledge keeps me, and a few of my friends (cough, cough) looking well-rested and fresh-faced. Her regular prices are good compared to other med spas, and she offers specials from time to time here, on Gilt, etc, which are usually great deals. If you "like" LA Skin Aesthetics on Facebook you might get lucky and catch a flash sale. If you want treatments that really work and will leave you looking natural and pretty, go see Melinda!

I need to share with the world how great Melinda is. She is my fairy godmother with magical syringes! She's so incredibly sweet and genuine, and most importantly so knowledgeable and skilled. She saw me at 7:30pm which is unheard of in b.hills and even on a Sunday morning yet still greeted me with a warm smile. I love Melinda! I feel so much better about bright lights and magnified mirrors! Thank you!

I so should have done this laser hair removal thing earlier in life! People love my smooth legs! "Oh my God they are so smooth", that's what they often say to me instead of "Hello". JK. Lol. In short, my legs stay smooth pretty much all the time. The hairs do grow, but very slow. Also, they are way thinner. For reference: I'm of a Jewish/Middle-Eastern origin, white skin, dark hair, my Dad is hairy as hell, and so am (was) I (Thanks, Daddy!). Melinda is very nice and accommodating. Those 6 two-hour long sessions were basically a nice relaxation time that I enjoyed in the midst of weekday stress. So if you've been considering laser hair removal or if you're just hearing about it for the first time in your life - really just do it. You'll enjoy life so much more!!! The parking in the building is expensive, but if you go north on Robertson and turn left to those little side streets you'll see 2 and 4 hour street parking. It's a bit of a walk but you love fitness, don't ya?!

As the other Yelpers have stated, Melinda IS wonderful! While researching IPL to get rid of sun damage from my teen years and 20s, I came across LA Skin Aesthetics on Yelp. I chose 3 places with high reviews but called this place first due to their package deals. The prices were slightly less than the 2 other clinics i was considering and the reviews were mostly 5 star so I called. Melinda returned my call within the hour and answered all my questions. I had planned to schedule a consultation first but she said I could do both a consultation and begin treatment on the same visit if I preferred! So I made my appointment and was very pleased with Melinda when I met her. She's super friendly, explains everything, and I appreciate how quickly she responds to text messages. I purchased a 5 pack for IPL treatments and received a discount through a Yelp deal. The treatment, itself was as Melinda described and went by very fast b/c we were chatting. The next day, Melinda checked in with me to see how I was doing. I booked appointment #2 before I even left her office. After one treatment I noticed a difference. I saw the results approximately one week after treatment #1. And with each successive treatment, the darker spots are getting even lighter. I HIGHLY recommend Melinda if you are considering IPL treatment.

I had originally thought I was going to get an IPL for my cystic acne. But after meeting with Melinda and discussing my acne history, she actually convinced me not to get any procedures done by her and to go talk to a dermatologist first. She was very honest about how to treat my acne and how my skin type would affect her treatments. She did not try to sell me on anything and even offered to answer any questions I had after seeing a dermatologist. She was very nice and knowledgable.

I must say that being newer to the area, I was slightly nervous about working with a new medical nurse for my skin. Melinda performed one of the best microdermabrasion treatments on me I have ever had. The machine was different than the usual diamond tone I've had in spas. It had a bristle brush and was more intense of a cleaning but certainly still did not irritate my skin. Melinda was fun, kind, and genuinely cared about customizing the treatment for my skin and was careful to get me good results (there is nothing worse than a timid treatment. I need my money and times worth!), but not go so aggressive that I left looking like my face was turned into beef carpaccio. My skin has been glowing ever since, and I have been using the recommended Skinmedica and Skinceuticals products she set me up with. I absolutely love how my skin looks and feels. Skin is our largest organ and it is in my opinion a necessity & not a luxury to take care of it. Do yourself a favor and go visit Melinda. PS she works Sunday's as well which is convenient for those of us who work full time and do business travel! Melinda I'll definitely be back soon!
