“I believe everyone has a right to look and therefore feel better. We at Medspa1064 encourage people to make the right choices leading to healthier lifestyles and improved self esteem. Our goal is to provide non-invasive, minimally invasive and non-surgical paths to healthier skin and improved appearance. Through Medspa1064, I want to help educate and treat clients who are suffering from years of sun damage and to provide them with solutions that will improve and enhance the appearance and health of their skin and body.”

Dr. Nicholas Karter, Physician

Dr. Nicholas Karter is board certified by The American Board of Otolaryngology and fellowship trained in facial plastic surgery. He is passionate about his work and strives to enhance every aspect of the patient experience. His keen eye for aesthetics, advanced training, and extensive experience allow him to create exceptional results with a wide range of procedures that include facelift, brow lift, ear surgery, eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty, and facial liposuction. He is also an experienced injector, regularly working with all the top injectables.

 Dr. Karter’s favorite part of being a facial plastic surgeon is the patients; he loves meeting new people and forging new relationships. He is driven to help his patients exceed their expectations and improve their lives. His greatest reward is sharing in the “wow” moments that patients experience when they first see their new look.

Dr. Karter is a patient-focused facial plastic surgeon. He strives to make each patient feel valued, listened to, and respected. Rather than dictating care, Dr. Karter strives to act as a guide, educating and inspiring patients while working with them to achieve their unique goals. By focusing specifically on the patients’ individual needs, Dr. Karter finds that everyone learns together and emerges from the facial plastic surgery experience feeling empowered.

As a knowledgeable surgeon, Dr. Karter focuses on presenting information and possibilities and letting his patient decide. He doesn’t use high-pressure sales or dismiss the risks of a procedure to make it sound appealing. Dr. Karter wants to give his patients a global understanding of their possibilities so that they can make an informed choice that best suits them.

In addition to the entire range of facial injectables, Dr. Karter will be performing the following procedures:

Eyelid surgery
Brow Lift
Neck Lift

Facial implants, including cheek, chin, and lip implants
