Lori Aliksanian, M.D., C.W.S.P., is a board-certified wound specialist physician with a passion for aesthetic medicine and nonsurgical anti-aging procedures.
After receiving a bachelor’s degree from the University of California, Irvine, Dr. Aliksanian earned her MD at Ross University School of Medicine in Dominica, W.I. She completed an internship in general surgery at the University of Maryland in Baltimore, then returned to Los Angeles for a residency in general surgery at Harbor-UCLA and a fellowship in wound reconstructive surgery at Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center.
During her years in practice as a wound care specialist, Dr. Aliksanian became fascinated by skin integrity and the body’s own regenerative potential. She began seeing patients with cosmetic aging concerns who wanted her help in restoring their appearance. She found that she could combine her love for beauty and symmetry with the advances in cosmetic surgery to give her patients the results they desired. She has since used her knowledge and expertise in skin healing to further maximize her aesthetic treatments.
Dr. Aliksanian believes in providing revolutionary anti-aging treatments that repair skin and restore it to a younger-looking state without surgery. Her expertise in creating non-surgical facelifts with injectable therapies such as Botox®, Juvéderm®, Voluma®, Vollure®, Radiesse®, Belotero®, Sculptra®, and Restylane® made her an in-demand injector, providing customized rejuvenation for her patients. Her special focus is on preserving each patient’s natural expressions while enhancing their unique beauty using the most advanced techniques available.
As a boutique medical aesthetics service, MedBeautyLA aims to preserve the sense of discretion, the focused attention, and the warm, personable care that Dr. Aliksanian, known affectionately as “Dr. A,” brought to her private patients. Dr. Aliksanian is a native of Los Angeles and is excited to bring Downtown LA a full service medical spa.

Danielle Cullumber, LE‘s skin journey began at a young age. She suffered multiple skin issues, including hives and bumps from different chemicals found in fabrics to experiencing acne throughout high school that continued into her 20’s. Seeing countless dermatologists and estheticians to try and keep the issues under control really took a toll on her overall self-esteem and confidence. It became her mission to help take that burden off of her patients; regardless of what their skin goals are. She knows how a poor self-image can drastically affect areas of a person’s life.
Danielle loves to spend time learning each skincare line she works with, understanding how each brand’s ingredients work together. When she first got into the esthetics business, she partnered with different skincare brands and medical cosmetic devices, working trade shows and educating buyers. She knew she wanted to work on the medical side of skincare and moved on to work with two Plastic Surgeons in the Bay Area before moving to Los Angeles to work with MedBeautyLA.
Educating her patients on the current skincare lines that she is working with helps her to build a fully custom routine for each person.
Danielle specializes in acneic skin, pigmentation, and overall skin wellness – she knows that she is sending her patients home with their skin looking and feeling better than before they came to her.
