5 out of 5 stars Restylane
Dr. Devani did a fantastic job with my filler. I'm so happy with the results - I look the same as in my old passport photo. He was very professional and personable. All in all, it was a very positive experience.
5 out of 5 stars Botox
Amazing experience. Dr. Devani treated my masseter muscles with Botox. I was experiencing pain and difficulty chewing food before the treatments - this has all resolved because of the injections. My face is also much slimmer. I am thrilled with his explanation of the procedure and gentle touch.
5 out of 5 stars Kybella
Dr. Devani and his team are true professionals and the absolute BEST at what they do. I've had several procedures performed, I always leave feeling more confident, look more refreshed and no one knows my secret... isn't that the goal. The latest treatment was Kybella, to help eliminate my double chin. I really appreciate Dr. Devani's knowledge about all the options we discuss and his open...
4 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting
Great experiene, they explained everything, answered all my questions. I may change the rating below once they get back to me on the photos as they said they would. During the four hours during treatment, I had a call button, but she didn't come in to check on me. However another person did. Overall, I really can't complain about anything.
5 out of 5 stars Accutane
It was such a relief to meet with Dr. Devani. I had been to a few dermatologists before meeting with him. He agreed that I was a good candidate for Accutane and got me started on my first visit. Appointments are always quick and he is on time. Answers questions and is very knowledgeable. My previous dermatologist was adamant I try a bunch of treatments through her office before she would...
5 out of 5 stars Lip Augmentation
I am thrilled with my beautiful new lips from Dr.Devani! I was hesitant to have this done but so glad I did! He is gentle,professional and truly caring.Listens to your wants and needs and takes pride in his work. Would NOT go anywhere else!
5 out of 5 stars Lip Augmentation
I was wanting a natural look with added volume to my lips. Dr Devani had great bedside mannor and was receptive to my concerns of wanting a natural look. Throughout the procedure I was able to see the progression of volume to ensure I was happy with the work that wasbeing done and the final result. I was extremely happy with the symmetry and volume at the end of the treatment.
5 out of 5 stars Accutane
5 out of 5 stars Lip Augmentation
Very professional but had a good sense of humor also. Knows how to make people feel comfortable and takes the time to inspect his work. He is quick but thorough, and is very helpful and willing to answer all questions with patience.
5 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting
Everyone is very professional they explain the procedure very carefully, handled things very professionally, and made me feel very comfortable. They explained that there would be some numbness and tingling in to go through which was well worth it.
