Entrust Your Health and Aesthetic Goals With DC’s Very Best


Dr. Safiyah West is a board-certified Nurse Practitioner in Washington DC. Upon achieving her doctoral degree (DNP) at the esteemed Columbia University in New York City, Safiyah returned to her beloved hometown of Washington D.C., to offer her knowledge and skills to a community that mirrors the diversity and dynamism of her clinical focus and expertise.


Dr. Safiyah West combines her years of acute and chronic clinical experience with years of training and work experience in aesthetic dermatology, integrating her dual passion for wellness and human- physiology with the art of aesthetic medicine.

Guided by an instinct for balance, harmony, and natural beauty in the human figure, Dr. West found her medical home in aesthetic medicine, also popularly known as cosmetic dermatology. Thus was born Arta Medical Spa – a boutique aesthetics practice nestled in the epicenter of Washington, DC’s iconic Washington Circle.
