We recommend walking, rideshare services, or the Metro when visiting Metropolis Dermatology. The traffic situation in downtown can be challenging. However, we have researched this topic for you since we are in LA, and we understand that this is very important!
When you arrive in the building lobby, sign in at the security desk, and the concierge will allow you to take the elevator to the 10th floor (we are suite 1050, the double doors right off the main elevator lobby). The building is highly secured for everyone’s benefit.
Walking: What’s better than being able to walk to your dermatology clinic? For those of you working in DTLA and want to stop by during lunch hour or after work to avoid the traffic, just walk on over. It’s great for the environment and you get good exercise. We are located at the intersection of 9th Street and Figueroa Street in the reddish-brown First Republic Bank building, across from Smart and Final.
Ridesharing (Uber, Lyft, Bird, Lime, Jump): You don’t have to worry about parking, and it’s a cheap way to get around in LA. Our address is: 888 S Figueroa St, Ste 1050, LA, CA 90017
Taking the Metro: We are 2 blocks south of the main Metro hub downtown: 7th Street /Metro Center stop. This is the intersection for the RED, PURPLE, BLUE, and EXPO lines. We are only a 5-7 minute walk from the station in DTLA. This is a good option for those coming from Pasadena, Hollywood, or the Westside.
Parking: Although there is an attached parking structure in the building for your convenience (entrance from Figueroa Street), we do not validate. There is also limited metered street parking on surrounding streets.
Some people choose to park at the Ralph's grocery store one block away (garage has two entrances - one on Flower and one on Hope - 90 min validated parking if you stop in) or Smart & Final store across the street. In either case, we recommend you do stop in as a customer. We are not responsible for tickets or towed vehicles.
Visit costs are variable and will depend on the medical complexity, number of issues, and length of visit. The costs and coverage, if you’re insured, is determined by your specific contract with your insurance company. After your copay is collected, the remainder of your services will be billed through your insurance company, and any remaining balance sent to you as a statement. Any visit fee does not include additional procedures done that day. We will be able to provide an estimate maximum costs for procedures done on the day of service. Based on your individual insurance plan, you will be responsible for an amount usually less than the estimate.
For our out-of-pocket or self-pay patients, see below:
Medical Initial Consultation Fee: $170

To make sure you get the most from your visit, here are the best practices and notes for booking esthetician services:
Please try to arrive on-time or a few minutes early.
Unlike a regular medical visit, where there is some presumed wait time, the timing for Aesthetician services is much more precise.With your schedule in mind, our providers work very hard to begin and end their treatments on time. Once you book a specific service, the start and end times of that service are set.
If you are running late, know that it may cut into your treatment time. We will accommodate you as much as is reasonably possible, but please know you are responsible for the reserved time in full.
Cancellations less than two full business day prior to the appointment (i.e. Monday for a Wednesday appointment) are subject to our standard cancellation fee.
Cancellations made one day ahead will incur a fee of $45. The basic charges for a 30-minute extraction session, or $95, which will automatically be charged to your card on file (required) for same-day cancellations and no shows for all aesthetician services. If you find that you must reschedule, you may request to cancel via our text/email reminder system up to 48 hours in advance or simply call the office.
Here at Metropolis, we will do everything we can to accommodate appointment changes and cancellations as required. While we do have systems in place to send confirmation calls/texts/emails for all appointments, it is still your responsibility to remember your appointment.
We value your time and appreciate you for viewing and supporting our policy, which ultimately preserves the quality service we hope to deliver.
Thank you for your understanding and we hope you enjoy the services!
