MY PERSONAL REVIEW
 

 

Dr. Rivkin is probably the most up to date practitioner in the aesthetic medicine field. I went to Dr. Rivkin to correct the sun damage on my face, neck, and chest and to eliminate some of the deep wrinkles and fine lines I had on my face. I had previously gotten botox but was considering a surgical face lift because I didn't like looking frozen. Dr. Rivkin gave me a long consultation and explained that I didn't need surgery and that my previous doctor (a big name dermatologist) just gave me too much botox in areas I really didn't need it. Dr. Rivkin gave me Juvaderm to eliminate the deep lines around my mouth and soften the the puffiness under my eyes. I had a fraxel treatment two weeks ago to eliminate the sun spots I have suffered from for years. My appearance is now rejuvenated without that plastic or frozen side effect. I am so grateful to Dr. Rivkin for talking me out of a costly and painful facelift. I think my appearance now is the best it has been in years and all it took was a few relatively painless injections and a laser resurfacing. Thank You Dr. Rivkin!
