Dr. Balikian is so kind and patient! He was referred to me by another plastic surgeon. She said she has seen his work and he does an amazing job. He makes you feel so comfortable and feel that you are in good hands. You can tell he had a passion for what he does!

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Used to live and work at Murrieta, so I found out about Dr.Balikian and he did the Botox injection, and I am very pleased for his professional job, and his friendly attitude . Three years ago moved to Irvine, but still I will go to Murrieta to get a chance to inject my Botox every four months. I want to thank all of his team for their friendly, professional job.


I was brought to the assigned room quickly. The doctor was very professional. He made me feel very comfortable. He answered my question. The treatment was quick and very little discomfort. He said at the end of my visit that I may have some bruising and may not notice a change for a few weeks. I did have some bruising and it just has been 2 weeks I am very confident that the results that I expect will happen.

Dr. Balikian is very professional and compassionate about the work he does. The staff is friendly and office appearance is first rate.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Dr Balikian always listens and gives me exactly what I'm asking for. I admire that dr balikian is honest with me about adding to little or to much when it comes to lip fillers. That he genuinely wants your results to look natural. I've always had a smaller top lip, and since my lip injections I am more confident, it really added to my smile

Efficient welcoming staff. Trusted doctor immediately.
