When I decided to get botox for the first time for me and my mom, I chose Self Care LA. Dr. Bharat was amazing. He went above and beyond to make us comfortable and give us the results we needed.
I can't say enough good things about Dr. K and his office…Dr. K spent his time talking to me in detail about what I would be expecting and helped me choose the right "look" for me that I would be most happy with…My end result was amazing, and I cannot wait to go back.
