"I recently had the Cool Peel Laser treatment done and I am very pleased with the results. Unlike past laser procedures, the Cool Peel has less downtime with better results. My fine lines and acne scarring have significantly improved. Dr. Charvet was VERY informative before, during and post procedure which was very comforting. I would highly recommend Magnolia Plastic Surgery & Med Spa for all of my cosmetic needs!"
"Went in today for laser hair removal for my first time ever and I couldn’t have chosen a better place. Maiya the gorgeous esthetician here took the best care of me. It is more then obvious she loves what she does and is so very skilled in it. I went in for one area of my body and ended up doing almost my entire body. The quality of care here is unlike any medspa I’ve ever visited. If your thinking about visiting, this is your sign to schedule your appointment. 10/10 Atmosphere and Service!"
"Couldn’t be more pleased with my results so far! Dr Charvet took the time to consult with me about what I wanted and gave me exactly that. I had a Mommy makeover (lipo, tummy tuck with muscle repair, fat transfer to breasts and hips) This experience has been nothing short of amazing. I’ve regained my confidence and my core strength! Since surgery, I’ve been back for laser hair removal, Botox and lip filler. The staff and Dr Charvet care about their patients and are always available to answer any questions. I’d 100% do it all over again and will be a repeat patient for any future procedures."
"Dr Charvet was beyond my expectations as a surgeon. He went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. He answered all the questions that made it easy to understand. He provided many details on the recovery process. He was there to answer all of my postop questions as well with his personal private number. His entire staff is friendly and prompt. You don’t just feel like this is a place of business but feel like it is an extension of your family and friendship Circle. Aside from my mommy makeover I also received medspa Services which were also excellent. I highly recommend to anyone and everyone !"
"Great experience and overall care. Dr. Charvet and his staff have continued to exceed my expectations. He has an excellent bedside manner, is very thorough in explaining what he will be doing and takes his time to answer any questions or concerns you may have. I’m very pleased with my results so far and would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a thoughtful, considerate and knowledgeable plastic surgeon."
