Meet Our Med Spa Team
William A. Carter, M.D.
Dr. William A. Carter received his medical degree from the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry in 1976. He completed a family practice residency at Lancaster General Hospital in 1979. Since that time he has been a well-respected physician with various medical practices and hospitals in Lancaster and Dauphin Counties.
Over the past 12 years he developed a strong interest in outpatient cosmetic treatments as a means to improve people’s self-esteem. Throughout that time he has had extensive training in the field of outpatient cosmetics and has been awarded certifications in laser treatments and all types of injectables. To date he has performed more than 35,000 BotoxTM and Dysport® treatments, thousands of filler treatments, and hundreds of fractionated CO2 laser resurfacings. He has recently added Zeltiq® treatments to his area of expertise. This is a non-invasive technique that reduces residual areas of bulging fat in such locations as the abdomen, “love handles”, or upper back.
Dr. Carter is a physician that is well known for his gentle and kind bedside manner, his personal integrity, and his care for the best interest of his patients. Of highest importance to him is staying abreast of the latest technology and treatment options available by attending national conferences and training sessions. As a patient, you can expect to find a professional and attentive staff, a clean and confidential office environment, and the utmost care and concern for your safety and comfort during each and every procedure.
