5 out of 5 stars Laser Hair Removal

Great staff

I went in for laser hair removal so I never actually met with Dr. Varano. I really liked his technicians, though one a bit more than the other. The office is very clean, and I was happy with the services I received. I hope to visit again in the future, and I recommend his office to others!

4 out of 5 stars Smart Lipo

smart lipo experience was a WIN

My experience with Dr. Varano was great! He was attentive during the procedure and I felt comfortable knowing he was an expert at what he was doing. My smart lipo procedure was on the flanks and lower back and I am currently two weeks post-op. I have seen a significant reduction in size esp. now that the swelling is going down. I'm excited to see the final results.

Excellent for laser hair removal!

I've had excellent results from laser hair removal, which has been performed on my legs, under arms, face, and bikini. I've been a patient for many years and have referred many of my friends and family. Very friendly and professional staff!

5 out of 5 stars Chemical Peel

Trying to Get Rid of Them Acne!

I had an appointment for chemical peel treatment. The staff was very friendly and everything went smoothly. The only issue is that the website is not very user-friendly, in terms of booking and cancellation. But it is not a major issue. The staff does explain what the process of the chosen treatment is going to be like and how should we take care of it after the treatment is done. Thank you for an excellent service.

5 out of 5 stars Microdermabrasion

Fantastic experience

My experience was fantastic. The wait was short and the facility was clean. The Dr. explained the procedure before we started and was explaining everything as she did it, as well. I went in for a microdermabrasion and was very happy with it.

5 out of 5 stars Microdermabrasion

Great customer service!

I did not actually see Dr. Varano but I received a Fraxel Facial & Microdermabrasion from a member of his staff and my skin has been great ever since! So much so that I haven't been wearing make-up-- which I usually never do!

10 out of 10!

Great laser hair removal service! Would go back. The staff was always friendly. And, my favorite part about Medical Cosmetic Enhancements, is that the service was always quick and efficient. I was in and out in a timely matter, never had to wait more than a minute for the procedure. Really appreciated that and their respect for my time.

Laser hair removal experience was great.

Quick convenient comfortable service. I had a laser hair removal procedure here: no pain, and I felt comfortable. I only had one session and I am still waiting to see the results, but so far so good. Thumbs up.

5 out of 5 stars Laser Liposuction

Great experience and great team!

Dr. Varano and team have been so great to work with! I saw them for a laser liposuction teatment. They were great about answering any questions I had, and never tried to push or sell me on anything I didn't need. They also made me feel comfortable throughout the whole process. I would highly recommend them!
