Testimonials

  • I have the best experience every time I go to Ocean Cosmetic Medicine. Kristy wields the laser with skill and expertise. I always feel so good when I leave and that it was money well spent. Also, they validate parking, which is a huge bonus. They are extremely professional and always are on top of the latest trends with their treatments. I highly recommend their services.

  • Been to others, but no other business or professional has been as knowledgeable, caring and overall on-top-of-her-game as Kristy at OCM. She is straightforward and will answer any of your questions without giving you the kind of sales pressure that I've experienced with all other places I tried before finding OCM.

  • I've had various treatments with Kristy and have always been very happy. She is an amazing medical aesthetician and I trust her completely with my skin. Whether it's lasers or peels, I always end up looking considerably better than when I walked in their door. Kristy spends a good deal of time and is very skilled and knowledgeable. Dr. Szeftel and the entire staff are wonderful. I love this place and highly recommend it to anyone wanting to look and feel better about their exterior.

  • Dr. Szeftel is an amazing, kind, caring and down-to-earth physician. These characteristics are rare in this day in age. He's patient and uses nothing but evidence-based medicine to treat a wide range of conditions. I owe him so much for getting me back to my baseline. I would drive 200 miles for an appointment because I entrust he's looking out for my best interest.Not to mention, Kristy and their new addition, Sara, are so delightful and wonderful to work with. I'm a loyal and committed patient of Dr. Szeftel. Thank you!

AMAZING LASER HAIR REMOVAL RESULTS‎‎

“Kristy and Dr. Szeftel are an amazing team that made me feel comfortable from the minute I inquired about Laser Hair Removal. I’ve done it in the past at another medical office and was disappointed with the results. However, after 6 underarm treatments from Ocean Cosmetics, I am 100% completely satisfied in regards to competitive pricing and results and can’t wait to tackle some other areas. My underarms are as smooth as a baby’s bottom and I never have to worry about stubble again. Kristy was always very, punctual, professional and friendly and I actually miss seeing her every 5 weeks. Check out this place…it’s a MUST!!!!‎‎‎”

Ocean Cosmetic Medicine‎

“Love this small skin care salon-not frilly or precious, just serious skin care by serious professionals. The laser treatments are fantastic and show immediate results; microdermabrasion is a personal favorite as I always receive loads of positive comments on my glowing skin afterwards‎”

Fantastic services and prices‎‎

“Ocean Cosmetics and Dr. Szeftel are THE BEST SERVICES AND PRICES I have received in Los Angeles! They work one on one with you, and take a lot of time to evaluate what is really needed. My last visit I received BOTOX and RADIASSE and the treatments were PAINLESS and extremely REASONABLY priced compared to most others I have seen or heard of. Do yourself a favor and call them for a consultation- you WONT BE DISAPPOINTED!‎”

BOTOX, LASER HAIR REMOVAL, CHEMICAL PEEL

“The botox was excellent treatment for headaches. Dr. Sheftel was a master physician at putting the botox in the correct headache spots. Had the hair removal, each zap feels like a rubberband snapping your skin, but the pain was tolerable and didn’t last long. The chemical peel was OK, but I’d go to try the microdermabrasioin next time (just my skin type, I think it would work better). Place is down-to-earth and not foo-foo. Very relaxing!!‎”

AMAZING RESULTS FROM BOTOX!‎

“Dr. Szeftel is an amazing physician! I’ve been to the best, most recommended dermatologist for Botox in Newport Beach as well as Los Angeles and was never happy with my results until Dr. Szeftel. He knows how to administer botox exactly where you need the treatment, not by a diagram. He will also make adjustments after one week if you aren’t fully satisfied. I’ve never had to do this, but if you haven’t had botox before, it’s hard to determine exactly how your muscles will react and it’s nice to go in to perfect it. Kristy and the rest of the office staff are so sweet and helpful, she always follows up with me via email about a week after a procedure to see if I’m happy with the results. I always am! Highly recommended!!‎”

IPL Laser
You are going to love this treatment!

“I stopped wearing low cut tops due to so much sun damage on my chest and with just two IPL sessions, my brown spots are virtually gone. It’s painless and quick; the results are dramatic and show up within about 10 days. Highly recommended.”

Anti-Aging Facial Peel

“What an easy way to undo years of sun damage or just simply Life’s aging process.The mask goes on for just a few wonderfully tingly minutes, then your skin lightly sheds away the years after about 2 days.No down time needed, as I was able to wear makeup and go about my life. A week later, your “new skin” is revealed as glowing, smoother, less lined. Miraculous! Five stars out of five.”


“My face feels like it is breathing again. Living in LA, the pollution and former ‘gunk’ that I applied to my face made it feel clogged and heavy. Using Results RX for three weeks now, not only does my face feel light, it has a shiny fresh glow. And, I know it is working from the inside-out.

I tried the Pomegranate Peel which did not have any irritation or redness (like the horror stories sometimes seen in the media). I now understand that it all goes back to the quality of the ingredients, and because Results RX is purified, it won’t burn off my face (which happens with other harsh peels).

I was amazed at how beautiful my skin looked after my Microlaser Peel. The staff made me feel so comfortable and the procedure was painless. After just two days my “new” skin emerged and it is smoother than it was in my 20’s. I recommend this procedure for anyone who wants to “freshen up” their appearance.
