I cannot say enough positive things about Larisa. She is a true perfectionist and possesses the knowledge, skill, professionalism, and warmth to provide the best possible results and procedure experience. I came to her when I was twenty-three years old with a face that had been ravaged by severe cystic acne scarring. Depressed and terrified that my skin would never recover, Larisa instantly made me feel safe, comfortable, and even hopeful.
Within just two or three sessions, I saw significant improvements, and within six months I was receiving compliments from strangers about how I had perfect skin! Larisa's meticulous work and caring personality truly transformed my life when I most needed it. I continue to see her on a regular basis for laser facials and preventative anti-aging measures (I even travel from Manhattan to Chestnut Hill, because I trust her so implicitly and wouldn't want to work with any other aesthetician).
As soon as I started working with Larisa almost seven years ago, I could tell that she was a healer by nature and that she would always take care of me as though I were her own relative. My intuition about her was right. Larisa has helped me to regain confidence and to achieve the best possible skin of my life. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Outstanding services, treatments and care! Larisa is the cream of the crop and knows skin care inside and out, she's extremely knowledgeable! I trust her expertise so much that I've sent my husband, son and sister to her and she's helped them beyond their expectations as well. She's been successfully taking care of my multitude of skin care issues for several years and I get compliments now more than ever. I've even done the CoolSculpting too and it worked perfectly. She always steers me towards the best solutions and isn't high pressure like some places I'd been to in the past. Larisa is so warm, friendly, genuine and caring, she makes us all look our best and feel so special! – Sandra S
The best service ever! Larisais so professional & skilled! My skin looks amazing & I'm thrilled with the results! Thank you! – Steph
I had Coolsculpting to get rid of my love handles and laser hair removal done to get rid of hair to my back. Best things I ever did for myself. LArisa explained it all to me, patiently answered all of my questions and made me feel so comfortable every time I went in. I’m much more confident and comfortable now. I’m so glad my Dr referred me to her and would recommend anyone to see her. – Paul
Coolsculpting has been a game changer for me! I work out, eat clean and still had some areas that wouldn’t go away. My trainer gave me Larisa's card and the rest is history. It was painless and I was able to work out that same day. Larisa's a pro and helped me a lot. – RB
My skin has never looked better since I started going to Larisa a few years ago. I had a bright red face from rosacea which was treated a few times at my dermatologists office without success and in my first treatment with Larisa,I saw an improvement. After 3 treatments my skin looked normal and the embarrassing redness was gone. I am forever grateful for her skills, kindness and humor. She always takes such great care of me. Now I see her for skin maintenance and anti-aging treatments and she keeps me glowing. I get compliments all of the time on my skin now, when in the past I used to try to hide my face because it always looked so red and angry. She is the skin whisperer, working miracles. I tell everyone I know about her. The only bad part about that, is that her schedule is always so busy so it can be difficult getting the time I want if I don’t book advance enough. She’s the best! – Laura
My mom has been going to Larisa for years and had me start seeing her about a year before my wedding. I am beyond thankful for that. She seriously transformed my skin and my waistline. She treated my face, chest and shoulders for discolorations and uneven skin tone and she did CoolSculpting to me. I looked better than I could have even hoped for on my special day, and now every day. She is so intelligent, talented and is the sweetest, funniest girl ever! She has me as a lifetime patient now and I’ll always go to her to keep my beautiful. – Ann
