Dr. Hakimi combines the safest cutting-edge technologies to help patients achieve their goals without a knife. Using a combination of different new technologies, he can tighten the skin without surgical scars. These new technologies provide better than 40% skin tightening along with improvement of the “crepe” appearance of the skin. Different areas including lower face, neck, abdomen, thighs, arms, back and bra rolls can be treated with this evolutionary method.

Dr. Hakimi’s method induces controlled fractional changes to the dermis creating new elastin, collagen. His instrument has a direct real-time temperature and impedance feedback system. This allows him to control energy delivery during deep dermal heating. It also provides a uniform treatment of the skin and dermis. This external method can be used to treat the crepe skin, or to promote collagen synthesis and thus “preventing” the natural progress of facial aging.

What Causes Cellulite?

Cellulite is caused by the interaction between the fibrous cords and fat cells that are pushing up against the skin. The fat cells push up creates uneven surface or the dimpling.

​ Because of menopause, estrogen in women decreases.Unfortunately the blood flow to the connective tissue under the skin also decreases. Lower circulation means less oxygen in the area, resulting in lower collagen production. Fat cells also enlarge as estrogen levels fall. These multiple factors result in making fat cells more visible. A healthy lifestyle can help reduce the creation of cellulite.

​Cellulite may also be more prevalent in smokers, those who do not exercise, and those who sit in one position for long periods of time. Wearing underwear with tight elastic across the buttocks can limit blood flow. This may contribute to the formation of cellulite.

Liftique’s “Bye Bye Cellulite” is a multi-treatment radio frequency energy-based procedure that stimulates collagen growth at the cellular level.

This treatment works with your body to produce increasingly noticeable results over the course of one or two months. Optimal results are often achieved within three months. Your skin will stay smooth and attractive for years to come.

Body Shaping and Mommy Makeover

Liftique Body Shaping with Fat Transfer: 

During our body shaping procedure, Liftique gently removes your own fat so we can use it to enhance, shape and sculpt other areas of your body, such as your face, breasts, buttocks, and even the backs of your hands.


Liftique Mommy Makeover:

Our Mommy Makeovers are specially designed to improve the appearance of your body after childbearing. After pregnancy and weight loss, it is common for tummy and breast skin to become slack and saggy.  Liftique Mommy Makeovers are customized based on each patient’s goals.  The Liftique Mommy Makeover is a combined procedure that includes a breast lift and augmentation, a tummy tuck, and the reduction of side fat (love handles).
