About

Hi, I'm Micole.

I'm a board certified nurse practitioner based out of Los Angeles.  While I'm experienced in aesthetics I have also completed a psychiatry internship . I work in collaboration with a board certified psychiatric nurse practitioner, a board certified psychiatrist and dermatologist . I specialize in holistic patient, high quality care. I believe treatment of the mind and body simultaneously help restore the person. My goal is to help people live happier, longer lives.

For as long as I can remember, I've been the helper and the " go to " person for solving problems or offering advice. I am naturally fascinated by people, how the brain works and all things Lavish. It is my philosophy that self care is the best care and our mental health is often neglected. With medication management and or therapy, life's problems can be much more manageable to navigate. Often times our mental health can affect our weight so weight loss management ties into self care.  At Lavish NP  we place  emphasis on mental health aesthetics. When the mind and body are in agreement the whole person is balanced.

We look forward to assisting you on your wellness journey.

Faq'S

These are some of the more commonly asked questions. If after review you do not find the question or answer you are looking for please reach out to us to inquire.

What is Ozempic and how does it work?

Ozempic, a GLP-1 agonist, works by increasing insulin release, delaying gastric emptying, and reducing appetite. Ozempic is used to treat type 2 diabetes, but can result in weight loss. It can lower blood sugar levels and reduce the risk of major cardiovascular events in patients with type 2 diabetes. Ozempic is available only by prescription. It is available in a generic formulation as well as under different brand names, including semaglutide.

Ozempic may be prescribed as an injection. It’s always important to follow the specific instructions on your prescription, as they can vary based on the formulation and dosage prescribed.

If you're prescribed Ozempic, be sure to complete the full course of the GLP-1 agonist unless your practitioner specifically tells you to stop. If you don’t complete your prescription, Ozempic may not fully treat your type 2 diabetes or weight-related medical problems.

What are some side effects of Ozempic?

More Common Side Effects:

  • Low blood sugar

  • Upset stomach, heart burn, indigestion

  • Nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea and or constipation

Other side effects, which are less common but might be more severe, could include:

  • Vision changes

  • Unusual mood changes

  • Pounding heartbeat

You should call our office if you notice any of these side effects, or if you develop any other new or concerning symptoms. The use of Ozempic is not recommended in children under 18.

How much does Ozempic cost?

If you qualify for an Ozempic prescription and the drug is included in your insurance plan’s formulary, your monthly cost may vary.

Most branded weight loss medications require prior authorization in order for insurance to cover the cost. Lavish NP and care team will reach out to your insurer on your behalf, and this process can take several business days. If you are denied the prior authorization or do not have health insurance, you may still purchase the medication at the full cash price. It is important to note that a type 2 diabetes diagnosis is usually required for insurance approval of this medication.

Unfortunately, many insurance plans do not cover Ozempic at all. The cost of Ozempic at wholesale prices is much more expensive than with insurance.

How can I refill my Ozempic prescription?

To refill your Ozempic prescription, book a virtual appointment . After reviewing your symptoms and lab work if needed, your practitioner can send an electronic prescription to your local pharmacy.

What should I expect after my first Ozempic shot?

After your first injection, you might experience nausea. For most people, this side effect goes away within a few days or weeks.

What happens if I miss a dose of Ozempic?

If you miss a dose of Ozempic, use the medication as soon as possible and return to your regular dosing schedule. If you’re more than 5 days late for the injection, skip the missed dose and follow your regular dosing schedule.

Is it better to take Ozempic at morning or at night?

You can take Ozempic at any time of day, with or without meals. Make sure to administer your Ozempic injection on the same day each week.

What if I can't afford the out of pocket expense for Ozempic because my insurance won't cover it?
