Meet Dr. Lori: The Founder of MedBeautyLA

Dr. Lori Aliksanian’s story is one of passion, dedication, and a deep-seated fascination with the skin’s ability to heal and rejuvenate. Her journey into the world of aesthetic medicine began in a rehabilitation hospital, where she specialized in reconstructive surgery for wounds in young paraplegic patients. This challenging but rewarding work underscored the significant role that cosmetic outcomes play in the healing process, particularly in the management and healing of scars. Dr. Lori’s expertise in recommending and utilizing various modalities to enhance scar healing marked the beginning of her journey toward aesthetic medicine.

Driven by a keen interest in skin health and the aesthetic aspects of healing, Dr. Lori pursued a fellowship in wound reconstructive surgery after her general surgery training. It was during this time that she began moonlighting at med spas, offering Botox and fillers, and exploring other minor procedures like lipoflash transfers. This experience, coupled with her work in wound care, sparked a realization of the profound impact aesthetic treatments could have on a person’s wellbeing and confidence. By 2012, while still in residency, Dr. Lori’s passion and expertise had grown to the point where establishing her own practice became the next logical step. Thus, MedBeautyLA was born, embodying her vision of combining medical preciseness with the art of aesthetic enhancement, all rooted in the science of skin healing and rejuvenation.
