Dr. Balikian is always extremely kind and answers all my questions. He is never pushy with other procedures and listens to my concerns. My Botox is always painless.

Expert physician and surgeon who continues his magic to keep me looking my best. Smoother appearance.


My first time for this procedure I was a little scared but the doctor made me feel so comfortable. Minimized some of my wrinkles.


Doctor is great at what he does! And staff is always great. It looks good.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Always extremely professional staff but very kind. The office has a wonderfully warm atmosphere. The entire experience is always positive and very successful results. The care is always very personalized.

Injectable Fillers

He gave me the right amount of filler to make my temples look more youthful. I no longer have to hide my face with a hat or cover it up with my hair. We recently had my husband's Winemaker dinner and I was able to have my hair pulled back and feel confident...Thank You!

Face Lift

I had a great experience talking to the doctor, and his staff, so if I desire to in the future to do my face lift definitely I will call Balikian.

Affordable, effective results. Virtually painless.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Dr. Balikian is not pushy and really listened to my concerns. He really cares. Already scheduled eyelid surgery. Quick and easy no down time. Results looked amazing.


Dr. Balikian and his team exceeded my expectations! I was so nervous to get this procedure done, but his staff took the time to comfort me when I was scared and explained everything step by step. I am so thankful for Dr. Balikian! I still look like me, but I like my nose now! Subtle change that made a world of difference in my confidence. Thank you Dr. Balikian and staff!

Eyelid Surgery

Ths staff were all friendly and pleasant. I liked Dr. Balikian's direct and personable manner, and his perspective regarding his patients not looking worked on.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Dr. Balikian was very attentive during my consultation and made me feel as though I was not on a time limit. He was very patient and explained every procedure in detail. In addition, he told me what procedures he would recommend and told me that some of the procedures I was interested in would not be necessary. It made me feel as though that his business is not about pushing out as many procedures as possible to make money but rather doing what is best for the patient.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Results were good. Easy and quick.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Dr. Belikian is a true professional! I trust his expertise completely.

Injectable Fillers

This was my 1st experience having my lips done with Dr. Balikian. The topical cream they use to numb my lips was fantastic. It worked so well and he explained how he uses a special blend in the topical numbing cream to help the patients feel as little pain as possible. He was right! I barely felt the needle and it was honestly the easiest and most pain- free lip injections I have ever had. He treated the fine lines above my upper lip and outlined both my upper and lower lips with Vollure. I love it! His technique is quick and gentle and my lips look fantastic! The vertical lines above my lip are filled in and look so good now! I highly recommend Dr. Balikian if you've been afraid to have your lips enhanced... He is the best! The whole office is beautiful and welcoming and I would never go anywhere else. This place is the best! I've had my lips done several times at other locations and always get a little nervous right before, because I know it's going to be pretty uncomfortable. I was SO happy when I was completely wrong today. The very best, painless experience I've ever had!

BOTOX® Cosmetic

As always Dr. B takes his time to inform you about the procedure. He is patient and always professional.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

[Highly satisfied with] my results and Dr. B's professionalism.
