An Ophthalmologist since 1997, Dr. Reyes regularly utilized Botox in her practice for treatments of eye conditions.

As her patient list continued to grow, in 2007 The Med Spot was born out of both necessity and a love for her work. Located in the heart of Woodland Hills, The Med Spot loves making the Valley a more beautiful place.

A South Dakota native, Dr. Michelle Reyes graduated with a Biomedical Engineering degree from Arizona State University in 1988. She went on to medical school at University of Louisville, graduating with honors in 1992. Dr. Reyes has been practicing Ophthalmology in West Hills since 1997 when she graduated from her Ophthalmology Residency at UC Irvine. Her practice blossomed in 2002 when Botox® was approved for cosmetic use.
In the years that followed and after hearing the increasing call from her clients for botoxand cosmetic procedures Dr Reyes transitioned over to the cosmetic field becoming a Cosmetic Surgeon. She is now following her dream of establishing a medical practice dedicated to minimally invasive cosmetic procedures alongside healthy age management in a relaxing spa environment, which we now know as “The Med Spot”. Dr. Reyes specializes in using her aesthetic instincts with her medical and technical background to make people realize their full beauty potential, health and wellness. Dr. Michelle Reyes is also heavily involved in continuing medical education to ensure she is practicing medicine using the most cutting-edge technology and training.
Dr. Reyes lives in Calabasas and has two grown children.
As both surgical and treatment coordinator, plus a certified Medical Assistant, Shirley is known as Dr. Reyes’s right hand. She’s always one step ahead when organizing the smooth running of each procedure throughout our busy days. From setting up the treatment rooms to pre-and post-care of our clients, Shirley has her role down to fine art. Shirley’s other responsibilities include; running the back office, phlebotomy, consulting with clients and customizing treatment plans to help the clients achieve their ‘best selves.’ Shirley is also our “Social Media Guru,” for those clients who love to follow us on social media.
As a graduate of Clarita Career College in 2007 with a certificate in Medical Assisting, Shirley started working alongside Dr. Reyes in 2008 at her former surgical practice. In 2013, she joined us here at The Med Spot. Shirley is currently attending Pierce College with the intention of advancing her career into the nursing field. A Southern California native, she currently resides in the west San Fernando Valley with her children, she is a great lover of movies, food festivals, and family activities.
Known as “the one with the accent” Lesley, a native Brit is the longest serving member of The Med Spot team, joining Dr Reyes in 2011. After many years in the creative field and running two businesses Lesley was given the opportunity to work alongside Dr Reyes heading up the front office of a rapidly growing business. Not knowing much about the aesthetic world, it was an education that would take her on a journey over the years that she has become passionate about. The business of helping clients feel good about themselves as they age and seeing how we’re able to help in this process has been the greatest reward. Lesley is an integral part of the continued growth of the business and its success as one of California’s leading cosmetic practices. She keeps the front office wheels running at all times with her attention to detail and ensures that each client experience is great from the moment they walk through the door.
Born in England, Lesley moved to the USA in 1990 with her husband and two children. She graduated St Martins College of Art London with her Bachelor degree in Fine Art. She later furthered her education with a minor in site merchandizing and graphic design. Aside from all things creative Lesley enjoys riding her motorcycle at weekends, running half marathons and family time with her children and grandson.
As a former loyal client, Stephanie came to join The Med Spot in June 2018 and quickly transitioned to becoming a valuable part of our healthcare team. Under the mentorship of Dr Reyes and extensive training courses, Stephanie has quickly become an expert with our wide range of lasers, utilizing her knowledge to customize all types of treatments. In addition to being hands on throughout all aspects of clinical and cosmetic care here at The Med Spot, Stephanie also specializes in injectables and hormone replacement therapy, making her a valuable asset to us and her clients.
Stephanie earned her Bachelor’s of Science in nursing from San Diego State University in 2009. She has practiced emergency medicine for over 9 years. She is currently active in the Emergency Nurses Association and maintains her certification in this subject. After living in San Diego for over 10 years, Stephanie took the opportunity to practice as a travel emergency room nurse in the Bay Area and Seattle Washington for one year before moving back to Los Angeles. After moving back, she decided to branch out and broaden her medical knowledge with the addition of cosmetic procedures which brought her to us at The Med Spot.
Stephanie is a Southern California native and grew up in San Fernando Valley. She enjoys running, volleyball and yoga. Her fun, caring nature is apparent to all who meet her, and we are extremely lucky to have her on board.
“Dr. Reyes asks how my week was and actually listens to the answer! I cannot get over how much she cares. I never feel like I’m being hustled here like I have at med spas in the past.”
“With an overly saturated market of nurses, PA’s and inexperienced doctors injecting the faces of any patient willing and able, I, first hand, saw the importance of using not only a clinical expert, but also an artistically/aesthetically trained eye. When I want more injections, if I don’t need them, Dr. Reyes will tell me no and I love that. Not all practices are created equally and that is a sincere plea to anyone – just because the price is right, doesn’t mean you’re in the right hands.”
“The choice of a person that injects you isn’t the same as picking the cheapest bunch of produce at the grocery store – frugality can have permanent, negative effects and it simply isn’t worth it!”
“During these economic hardships, we are all tempted to chase the cheapest offer available, and I would implore people to think twice before doing that – it’s simply not worth it. I won’t go anywhere other than the Med Spot.”
“A native Angelino, after I relocated to San Diego County, I had Botox injected by a nurse, as the thought of driving back to LA was a bit daunting. With this nurse, I informed her that my main doctor (Dr. Reyes) would not inject my temple area for fear of my eyelids drooping. This nurse ignored my request, injected my temple area anyway, and I had very noticeable eyelid and eye drooping hours after this procedure. It was a solid 2 months with my appearance being so negatively affected. Needless to say, I now drive back to LA consistently (it’s not even a second thought) to keep my beauty in the hands of an expert.”
“Dr. Reyes was my very first injectible doctor experience. I was incredibly apprehensive, to say the least. That was 4 years ago. To this day, she is my most trusted doctor for enhancing my beauty.”
“Dr. Reyes is phenomenal. She listens! Number one for me! And, she’s experienced skin issues herself so it seems like she knows how a person with skin issues feels. Very knowledgeable and took time with me to answer ANY AND ALL of my questions! I feel great to know that a doctor actually cares and is not just trying to get my money and send me on my way.”
“I bruise very easily and I NEVER bruise with Dr. Reyes based on some technique that I can’t explain or understand. I didn’t believe it was possible and I am thrilled!”
