"Excellent Doctor and Staff - I won a IPL treatment at Liftique watching a zoom video with Dr. Hakami. Pam was wonderful, I loved it Nicole T. greeted me, she is so great to talk with. She made me feel so comfortable, I had been considering a facelift and she had me talk with Dr. Hakimi. He made me feel so at ease and explained everything I would go through. He was very thorough. Two weeks later I had the facelift. He asked me what my main concern was and it was my neck. My face and neck came out perfect. He has the best bedside manner. After surgery I had some questions, anytime I called everyone was so accommodating. His nurse Mel also made me feel comfortable and answered all my questions. He also massaged my face which had a little swelling, which was great. I can't say enough about Dr. Hakimi, he is wonderful. Everyone is extremely professional and with Covid going on, it was never a problem. I am so happy with the results. Also, Dr. Hakimi is great with Botox, I can't say enough about him."- B. / RealSelf / Mar 24, 2021

"I had the most wonderful experience at Dr. Hakimi’s office. The staff was very welcoming, which helped ease my anxiety as this was my first time getting any kind of Botox and fillers. I was most nervous about the result and wether my face would appear over done after getting lip fillers and Botox in my forehead, my Dr. Hakimi established exactly the results that I was looking for. Everything looks super natural, just as I had asked. I am now considering going back for more treatments, seeing how satisfied and happy I am with the results."- S.A. / Google / Nov 22, 2021
"Came here after a ton of research. I got armpit liposuction done a little over a month ago and the results are fantastic. More than that, I’m leaving this review because Dr Hakimi and all his staff are GREAT! They’re so kind and accommodating and they make sure you’re comfortable. I asked a lot of questions thru this process because I’ve never gotten any cosmetic procedure done before and he never made me feel rushed. Would highly recommend!! I actually go to him now for Botox too. It’s a little out of the way from where I live but worth it to go to someone I trust"- H.L. / Google / Sep 06, 2023
Wrinkle Relaxers at Hakimi Plastic Surgery
Dr. Hakimi is a board-certified plastic surgeon who draws on his years of knowledge and experience to deliver exceptional results with anti-aging injectables like Botox, Dysport or Daxxify. He is highly skilled at targeting the facial muscles that cause minor expression lines or creases to appear so you can enjoy smoother skin and a more youthful appearance.
Botox is one of the most popular anti-aging injectable treatments worldwide, and it's easy to see why. In the right hands, Botox can effectively reduce the appearance of expression lines and wrinkles without making you look stiff or frozen. The goal is to deliver natural, subtle results that rejuvenate your appearance and give your face that “soft focus” effect.
The active ingredient in Botox — a purified form of botulinum toxin type A — works by temporarily weakening the movement of treated facial muscles, allowing the tissue above the muscles to rejuvenate naturally. This simple procedure can give you the renewed and refreshed look you want.
Dysport is another household name in the anti-aging industry, known for its ability to produce a soft feathering effect due to its unique formulation. Dysport uses the same active ingredient as Botox to reduce muscle movement and diminish the appearance of expression lines but is lighter and more dilute, allowing it to spread more easily once it is injected beneath the skin.
This makes it ideal for treating larger areas like the forehead. Dysport also “kicks in” faster than other brands so you can see your full results sooner.
Dr. Hakimi is proud to offer Daxxify, the newest anti-wrinkle injectable on the market. Daxxify contains botulinum toxin and works similarly to Botox and Dysport, but is the only neurotoxin made with patented Peptide Exchange Technology™ (PXT) to stabilize the formula and enhance its overall performance. This greatly increases the longevity of your results, giving you smoother and wrinkle-free skin for up to 6 months, compared to 3 or 4 months.
Daxxify is also formulated without any human or animal-based ingredients and contains no accessory proteins, making it suitable for people who have developed a resistance to Botox. If you’ve noticed that other wrinkle relaxers aren’t working as well or want to try something new, talk to Dr. Hakimi about Daxxify and learn how it can help you achieve your goals.
How Are Wrinkle Relaxers Administered?
Anti-aging injectables like Botox, Dysport and Daxxify are quick in-office treatments that take 10 – 15 minutes to complete. During your appointment, you will meet with Dr. Hakimi to discuss your needs and goals so he can develop a personalized treatment plan just for you. He will then ask you to make a number of facial expressions with the upper face, such as frowning, squinting and smiling. This helps him visualize which muscles to target and where to place the injections to help you achieve a more youthful appearance.
Once the proper areas have been identified, Dr. Hakimi will inject your chosen wrinkle relaxer using a fine needle. Each injection takes just a few seconds to complete and is followed by a cool compress to help prevent bruising, swelling and discomfort. You may ask for numbing cream to ensure your comfort, but most patients tolerate the procedure well. Afterward, you’ll be able to return home and resume your normal routine with no downtime or recovery.
Botox and other anti-aging injectables easily fit into your busy schedule and are considered the perfect “lunchtime procedure” for rejuvenating your appearance. They can also be combined with dermal fillers like Juvéderm or Restylane to restore lost volume and soften the appearance of static wrinkles that are visible when the face is at rest.
Anti-aging injectables are nonsurgical treatments that require no recovery. After your appointment, you may resume your daily routine, but strenuous activities or exercise should be avoided for at least a day to ensure the best possible results. Dr. Hakimi will also ask you to avoid touching your face and sleep with your head propped up for the first night.
Treated areas of the face may appear bruised or red with a small amount of swelling for a few days after your appointment, but you should not experience any lasting side effects. In most cases, you will start seeing the effects of Botox after 3 to 5 days, and you can expect these results to last for up to 4 months. Dysport has a similar duration, but you may start seeing results as soon as 2 to 4 days after your injections are administered. Daxxify also tends to work faster (within 2 days) and lasts for an average of 6 months.
When you start to notice wrinkles returning, follow-up appointments can be scheduled to extend the longevity of your results. With the right treatment timeline, you can enjoy smoother and more youthful-looking skin year-round.

SAY GOODBYE TO EXPRESSION LINES AND WRINKLES
Anti-aging injectables that temporarily relax the facial muscles are ideal for eliminating dynamic wrinkles that appear with every smile, laugh or frown, also known as expression lines. If you’re
wondering whether these treatments are right for you, wrinkle relaxers like Botox, Dysport and Daxxify can address the following concerns:
- Forehead wrinkles
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Lipstick lines
- Wrinkles around the mouth
- Bunny lines that appear around the top of the nose
GAIN THE UPPER HAND WITH PREVENTIVE TREATMENTS
Neurotoxins are ideal for individuals who want to soften the look of expression lines and wrinkles that form on the upper face without surgery or downtime. However, they can also be used to stop the wrinkles that develop as a result of repeated facial expressions from forming in the first place. By blocking the nerve signals that tell the muscles to contract, injectables like Botox, Dysport or Daxxify can inhibit certain facial movements like frowning, squinting or furrowing your brows to keep your skin smoother for longer.
These are known as preventive treatments, and they are increasingly popular with younger patients. The idea is that if you start anti-aging injectables before the onset of wrinkles, the botulinum toxin will weaken the facial muscles that cause them to appear, significantly slowing their formation. As with most things, wrinkles are easier to prevent than remove, making it more effective to get ahead of them and gain the upper hand before they set in.
Smile More and Laugh Longer
If you're noticing lines near your eyes and mouth that linger after every smile, laugh, or frown, you may want to consider one of the injectable options available at Hakimi Plastic Surgery. To smooth and prevent lines across the face, we invite you to schedule a consultation with Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Hakimi to learn more about anti-aging injectables like Botox, Dysport and Daxxify to smooth your skin and give you a softer, younger appearance.
