Doctor Rachel is dedicated to helping clients achieve their aesthetic goals. All consultations require a non-refundable $75 deposit that will be applied towards your first service(s). All consultations are scheduled for 30 minutes, with approximately 15 minutes of dedicated physician-client face-to-face time. For same day service, the deposit is $75. Please note that services are only performed following receipt of signed patient consent forms and collection of clinical before and after photos.

With all medical devices and pharmaceuticals, there are no guarantees in medicine. While medical treatments are put through clinical studies ( to determine their safety and efficacy, there are always going to be a percentage of people who do not see efficacy, with any drug/medical device. As stated in the medical literature in which clinical studies are published, not everyone will respond the same to treatment, and the results depend on a variety of factors such as degree of laxity of the treated skin, healing response of the patient, and genetic predisposition.

Appointments, including consultations, must be booked in advance. Walk-ins may be turned away. You may schedule by calling 626.765.6291 during business hours to to book an appointment. At the time of booking, please be prepared with your credit card. Your card number will not be stored on file. 

A confirmation call will be placed from our office approximately 48 hours prior to your appointment. Automated confirmation emails and texts are sent 48 hours prior to your scheduled appointment time as a reminder. However, it is your responsibility to maintain your appointment.

Check in with the front office at least 5 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to prepare for your treatment. As we are a medical clinic, we require that all new clients fill out health history intake and treatment consent forms. 

Please note that non-patients or patients not receiving a consultation or service will not be permitted inside to ensure that the environment be preserved for utmost privacy and safety. This rule also applies to children and babies in strollers. Be sure to make the proper accommodations prior to your appointment. 

We are not responsible for lost or stolen items, and encourage you to leave valuables at home.

Our scheduling is designed to permit the correct amount of time to complete your service. A late arrival will deprive you of precious treatment time. In fairness to others, your treatment must end on time so the other clients ‘ sessions can begin on time. If you are not able to be on time, we will do our best to complete as much of your treatment as possible; however, with some treatments, it may be necessary to reschedule your appointment. If you are 10+ minutes late for your scheduled appointment, you will be considered a ”no-show” and charged for 100% of your service fee.

Your scheduled appointment is reserved exclusively for you. Should you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please notify us at least 48 hours in advance to avoid losing your deposit(s). All services canceled or rescheduled the day of appointment will be charged a $75.00 fee for a consultation or a $150.00 deposit for consultation and same-day treatment. For those who have purchased a package (i.e. chemical peels, MicroNeedling, or laser) 1 session will be forfeited.

A credit card number is required to secure all appointments.


We do require patients consent to use of clinical before and after photos before receiving a treatment. Consent reads as follows: I hereby irrevocably consent that my photo(s) or portrait(s) of me, or of any part of me, or reproductions therefore, may be used by Contempo Aesthetics and their employees for internal purposes only including producing before/after collages for my review only. Photos will not be shared via digital channels including social media and/or website. I hereby certify and represent that I am 18  years of age or older. 

Contempo Aesthetics offers clients the opportunity to schedule a follow-up appointment at a time recommended by Dr. Rachel post-treatment (typically at least 7-10 days for Botox or Dysport and 10-14 days for dermal filler). The follow-up appointment is meant to review before and after photos as well as address results and maintenance. If additional Botox and/or dermal filler is recommended, a 25% discount off the retail rate is applied. This is extended through the first 30 days post initial treatment(s). 

Your satisfaction is our utmost concern. If you wish to return a product, only the unopened item with a dated receipt within 30 days of purchase will be accepted. Please bring in the product with your receipt within (30) days of the purchase as the refund will be credited back to you in the same method of payment used for purchase.


We reserve the right to alter our policies at any time and without prior notice, verbal or written.
