Cultivating his bedside manner during a career as a board-certified anesthesiologist, Dr. Michael Carter swiftly switched over to the med spa world where he now happily serves as the medical director of Atlanta Medical Spa, overseeing traditional spa treatments and transforming patients with cosmetic procedures. Though not a certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Carter has spent many hours training in the cosmetic field, completing intensive course work and honing the ability to identify celebrities from only their pores.
