Your First Visit
What to Expect
At Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center, we take pride in providing state-of-the-art treatment in a unique, private and tranquil setting so our patients can benefit from the most advanced technology without the stress of a medical facility environment. On your first visit, you may be pleasantly surprised when you arrive in our warm and charming facility and meet our knowledgeable, friendly team of laser skin care experts.
Overview of Your First Office Visit
If you are visiting our practice for the first time, or considering visiting our practice, it may be helpful to know what to expect:
Online Patient Portal
Before your initial consultation with one of our providers, we ask that you go online to our patient portal and fill in the information requested. Registration is easy and secure. This step will save time during your office visit. It will allow us to obtain the medical information needed for your treatment and give our full attention to you while you are in the office.
Meet Your Provider
The first step to get started with your cosmetic treatment is a consultation with your healthcare provider. Depending on the type of treatment you need, your consultation may be with a Board Certified Nurse Practitioner (NP), a Physician’s Assistant (PA), or an Aesthetician.
A Nurse Practitioner is an advance-practice nurse who is qualified to prescribe medications and diagnose and treat medical conditions without a doctor’s supervision. A Physician’s Assistant is a highly skilled health care provider licensed to practice medicine under the close supervision of a physician. PAs exercise autonomy in diagnosing and treating illnesses and provide a wide range of medical and surgical services. An Aesthetician is a licensed skin care specialist, trained to analyze and cleanse the skin using a variety of techniques.
In your consultation, you and our medical team member will first discuss your treatment goals and concerns. Your provider will then advise you of your best treatment options and devise a comprehensive treatment plan customized specifically for you.
Meet the Manager
After your consultation, you will meet with our Practice Manager, Erica Dugas, or with one of our front office administrators, Samantha Renteria or Spencer Kaufman, to review the information from your provider and to discuss pricing. You may also go over any pre-care that might be needed before your treatment begins.
Beginning Your Treatment
Your treatments will be provided in scheduled appointments. We ask that you arrive on time so you can enjoy the full treatment and have the most pleasant patient experience. If you arrive a little early, we have a beautiful lounge and coffee bar for your relaxation and enjoyment.

The Lasky Aesthetics Difference in Beverly Hills
At the Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center in Beverly Hills, we believe that each patient is unique, requiring his or her own treatment that is different from anyone else’s. That is why patients will fly from Europe, Canada, China and Mexico to our Los Angeles MedSpa for this personal experience.
In today’s marketing world of “thrilling” and “fabulous” procedures, the cosmetic industry is moving away from the standard medical approach of a treatment plan for each patient and more towards a confusing mess of à la carte services.
When you come in with something you’d like to change about your appearance, our first step is determining a proper treatment plan for you. This is done with a thorough consultation, complete with listening to your goals and understanding who you are.Learn more about how we're different »
