It’s all about consistency

Beautiful skin is achieved with consistency. As the largest organ in your body, your skin must be cared for in similar ways to any essential part of your body. To achieve the radiant, youthful luminosity you want, it’s important to stay out of the sun and use proper sunscreen, follow a healthy diet, get adequate sleep, and follow an overall healthy lifestyle. 

Even more importantly, you must put the right active ingredients on your skin. Potent, effective ingredients for skin revitalization, hydration, collagen production, and more, must be applied to the skin every day. The KaramMD skincare line includes all the ingredients you need for healthy skin. Just use it every day, and your skin will have what it needs to thrive.

Your personalized skin care rejuvenation program

The journey to true skin rejuvenation is unique for each person. To begin, we will assess your skin and understand your concerns and problem areas. From there, we will craft a skin rejuvenation program. This will include the KaramMD skincare products, the Trifecta + POLISH.

Additionally, your skin rejuvenation program will include some or all of the following:

  • Scientifically-formulated sunscreen and sun protection
  • BBL Photofacial Therapy

  • Laser Resurfacing
  • Profractional Therapy

Through a one-on-one skin consultation, we help our patients get informed and empowered so that they can get the most out of their treatments. We believe strongly that treatments need to be effective as well as cost-effective. That is the standard we use when recommending skin care treatments.

Skin rejuvenation basics with Dr. Amir Karam

The basic components of a good skin care and skin treatment regimen include proper skincare, and that includes more than skincare products and treatments.  Dr. Karam educates his patients in a conversational way with his expert advise and knowledge about the science of skin aging and how to reverse it on his youtube channel and in his KaramMD Journal on his skincare website.

Two of the most vital components of healthy, beautiful skin include protecting your skin from the sun and applying the correct active ingredients to your skin on a consistent basis.

What are some of the vital ingredients in the KaramMD skincare line?

Of the many key ingredients Dr. Karam chose to include in his groundbreaking KaramMD family of skincare products, the following are some of the most important:

  • Retinol: Retinols stimulate the cells to produce collagen and elastin while exfoliating the upper layer of the skin, achieving better skin tone, skin texture, and brightness.
  • Antioxidants: Vitamin C and E are potent antioxidants used to minimize free radical damage, resulting in lighter, brighter skin.
  • Hyaluronic acid serum and lipids: These ingredients are two vital hydration components that lock in moisture, help achieve supple, soft skin, improve skin texture, and manage and balance oily or dry skin
  • Niacinamide: Helps achieve skin surface immunity, protects skin cells from environmental stressors, minimizes fine lines & wrinkles Improves the firmness of the skin.
  • Peptides: Peptides decrease the loss of elastin and stimulate the production of collagen, strengthening the skin matrix and helping achieve firm, fresh skin.
  • Non-hydroquinone lighteners: This ingredient lightens and brightens the skin, effectively reducing pigmentation concerns.

Skin Treatments to Augment Your Daily Skincare Routine

Aside from consistent use of the products in the KaramMD skincare line, having skin treatments every few months helps give a more dramatic boost to your skin. We provide the following treatments, performed alone or in combination with each other to suit your needs.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are an excellent approach to treating sun-damaged and wrinkled skin. There are a variety of different chemical peel agents available. These can be customized to treat a specific skin condition and skin type. Regardless of the type of peel, a well-done chemical peel leaves the skin glowing. The improvement in texture and improvement of pigment discoloration (brown spots) can be dramatic. Peels can also eliminate fine lines and wrinkles.

We offer a range of chemical peel treatments ranging from light micro peels to medium-depth TCA peels. The downtime ranges from no downtime for the light peels and between 5-10 days for medium-depth peels. These procedures are well tolerated without anesthesia. Chemical peels can be done in combination with botox and filler treatments as well as with facelifts, eyelid surgery, or fat transfer.

Francine M.

"I had a vertical restore at age 65 with Dr Amir Karam. It has been a little over a year and I am delighted with the results. Some of my friends have not even noticed - I just look rested. Dr Karam will provide you with all the information and supplements that you need to make the procedure and the recovery time as comfortable as possible. I usually bruise very easily but with the supplements that were given to me prior to my procedure and afterwards, my bruises were gone within a week."

"I highly recommend Dr. Karam and would go back to him for anything I might want done in the future. I totally trust his approach and recommendations. You won't be disappointed!"

Kris R.

"I'm one month out from a Vertical Restore with Dr Karam. Dr Karam is an incredibly talented Surgeon. I can barely see my scars already. I also did a laser peel, within 8 days I was wearing makeup and admiring my new jawline and neck. I'm 65 this month and so happy I chose him. He is the best there is. His staff are fun, caring and kind. They made my entire experience so easy. I would not hesitate or even think about going anywhere else. Check out his Instagram account. He does all his content himself. Extremely informative, with many before and after photos. I decided on Dr Karam after researching his Instagram and had made my decision before we had even met."

Janice S.

"Dr Karam is a great surgeon, a true artist and a wonderful human being. He has done 2 procedures on me over the last 3 years. Both with excellent results. His fat transfer and his lip lift technique are extraordinary. I wouldn't think of going to anyone else and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for the best."
