"I first had several visits for Botox and fillers that made me look fantastic and I learned about Halo Laser skin treatment in his office and decided to do that for myself...." "I was also able to go out for dinner that night and didn't experience any residual pain, discomfort or bruising." "He is very honest about the results you will receive and what to expect."

5 out of 5 stars Neck Lift


Fantastic. Dr. Karimi is top notch and although I'm still healing, I already have amazing results. Besides his expertise in facial plastics, he is personable and incredibly easy to speak to. He made me feel completely comfortable and was very responsive to all my questions, concerns and needs. I was completely blown away as well by his amazing staff. From Robbie who set up my appointment,...

5 out of 5 stars SculpSure

Problem Areas Completely Eliminated with Sculpsure at Rejuva!

If you're thinking about getting this procedure done at Rejuva, I can't recommend the laser and the office enough. His staff is incredible and I put all of my trust in their expertise. Their PA, Jeannine, has ample experience with both CoolSculpting and Sculpsure and is extremely passionate about Sculpsure. She performed my procedure and put a lot of thought into the placement of the laser, comparing the asymmetry in my ribcage and adjusting the belts accordingly to maximize the effects.

5 out of 5 stars Revision Rhinoplasty

My Doctor for LIFE

I found Dr. Karimi after meeting with 4 different doctors before him for a complex revision following 2 prior botched rhino/septoplasties. He was the only doctor I met with of the 5 who immediately made me feel at ease, and conveyed a level of confidence and expertise that I hadn't felt from any of the others. Moreover, at no point did I feel that he simply was trying to convince me to go with...

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

The BEST Plastic Surgeon I've ever had (and I've had a few!)

Dr. Karimi is an ARTIST and saved my face. I came to him after years of hopelessness having been botched in a prior surgery. He not only was able to reverse the issue in the delicate area of my eyes but I now look like I did 10 years ago, but better. Not only that, but he is truly warm, empathetic, funny, kind and caring--everything every doctor should be but most aren't. I feel blessed I...

Dr Karimi performed the Thread Lift with hyaluronic acid filler and the results are just Amazing! I have the...

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Fabulous Experience

I had a neck lift and face lift with Dr. Karimi. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would give him a 100. I look 10 years younger and refreshed. Dr. Karimi's is like an angel when it comes to his bedside manner. I felt very comfortable from the first visit, sugary, and follow up appointments. Dr. Karimi's staff is very cordial, and helpful. I recommend Dr. Karimi, and the experience I had was great.
