Facial Tightening & Lifting Personalized care for every patient

The face and neck are some of the first areas that begin to show the signs of aging. Though the biggest changes are often seen around your 40’s and 50’s, our skin actually begins aging around 25. At Grossman Dermatology in Santa Monica, we have perfected the art of subtle improvements for patients of all ages to keep you looking youthful and timeless.

“My results were 

Dr. Grossman is an amazingly talented and patient woman. I don’t believe I have ever had a doctor spend so much time with me problem-solving, evaluating, reaching a plan, and then making it happen. My results were amazing.

“My eyes convey the 
joy of life”

My eyes are my defining feature. It’s not only about the fear of looking tired all the time. I want my eyes to convey the joy of life that I really feel. They always have, and now thanks to Dr. Grossman and Thermage, they still do!

“I have trusted 
Dr. Grossman for 17 years”

Her masterful techniques and artist’s eye not only corrected the problems, but she enhanced other areas polishing up the whole effect. I have depended on her several times a year ever since for whatever treatments I need.

“Dr. Grossman is the best of the best”

The treatments have improved the appearance of my skin as she promised, such that I need less interventions in my problem areas. Wrinkles have relaxed — and I am 61 years old! I trust her completely with my face and all the skin of my body.

“Her mastery enhances my beauty”

I can fully understand why the A-list celebs choose her, and I feel so grateful that a regular woman like me can also receive the same level of detailed, aesthetically sensitive mastery from Dr. Grossman.

“Dr. Grossman’s skills as a physician are stellar”

She will only recommend procedures that can enhance your physical beauty. Dr. Grossman has given new meaning to the phrase ‘aging gracefully’. Kudos to this physician and her staff, which provides top-notch care!

“I’m so lucky to have found her”

My age was starting to show on my face…I have always been nervous about doing any type of injectables or laser treatments, but Dr. Grossman knew just what I needed and did it with the most natural of results.

“I am nearly 81 and feel beautiful”

I searched for a long time to find a doctor who could make me look and feel beautiful for my age. In one treatment with Dr. Grossman, I looked so good that I could make an appearance as a lecturer.

“Absolutely worth it”

Struggling with acne has been an emotional experience, but after seeing Dr. Grossman, I immediately started feeling and looking better. Dr. Grossman has been the most generous, caring, and efficient dermatologist I’ve ever met.

“Dr. Grossman is just amazing”

Over the years I tried various dermatologists, and I have been always dissatisfied. Dr. Grossman has a very natural approach to any procedure…she is very gentle, patient, and always on the forefront of new technologies to make you look better.

“I loved the personalized care”

Dr. Grossman made sure to be thorough and answer all my skincare questions. The office didn’t rush me or pressure me into treatments that I wasn’t interested in; but gave me options that would help with keeping looking young.

“An amazingly thorough doctor”

I have been going to Dr. Grossman for almost 12 years now. I go to her for dermatological issues as well as beauty procedures, she takes her time and doesn’t make you feel rushed. She knows what she’s doing, she doesn’t mess around, and she is a brilliant doctor!

“My skin has never looked better”

Dr. Grossman’s technique is cutting-edge, but she definitely makes sure that you don’t look like one of those ‘over-worked’ women you see in Hollywood. She has an eye for symmetry and natural beauty.
