I’ve had dermaplaning done here by Chelsea who is the medical esthetician in the practice. I would highly recommend it if you have light fuzz on your face, it makes your skin feel soft as a baby and the peach fuzz comes off with the treatment…so it’s a win/win situation! Overall…EXTREMELY happy with services and friendliness/professionalism of the staff and Dr. West.

A wonderful experience. Dr West is talented and obviously one of the best in her field. Add on top of this–the wonderful atmosphere in her office with her kind and friendly assistants, I highly recommend her.


Exceptional doctor who truly cares and provides optimum results for her patients. I am a long time patient of Dr. West, and I have found her to be an “aesthetic artist” whose passion has helped restore and preserve the health of my skin.


Dr. West is an expert at lip augmentation. Just follows the natural line and restores a softer youthful look. Always happy with the charming and efficient staff.


I am a longtime patient of Dr. West. Each time I see her, she proves her passion and artistry in the 5 STAR results she helps me achieve in reaching my aesthetic goal to reverse the signs of aging. Dr. West is so gifted in the placement of filler and Botox that no one can tell I’ve been worked on. I highly recommend this office.

I was so impressed with the caring staff. They made sure I understood all my options before any treatment. Dr. West made me feel very confident with my choices. Her experience shows, not only when she is administering the treatment but, now it shows on my face ! I could not be more pleased with the natural looking enhancements. Thank you Dr. West and staff!
