World-renowned. Pioneering. 100% dedicated to aesthetic medicine.  Why trust your appearance to anyone else?

The physicians at Reflections have only one focus: Making you look and feel naturally beautiful at any age.

While other doctors dabble with BOTOX or have one single “do-all” laser, our physicians have dedicated their professional lives to providing you with the best aesthetic outcomes possible. Our doctors are true experts, training other physicians in advanced laser and injection techniques.  We’re always looking to provide our patients with the newest technology and the most innovative treatment methods. If it’s out there and it’s worthwhile, we’ll not only have it at Reflections, we’ll have it mastered.

The procedure was easy, it is without a doubt the very best thing that I have ever done for myself. Doctor Karolak even gave me his personal cell phone number and I did call him. He answered personally and answered my questions. How many doctors give out their cell phone numbers?”

– Margie M.

 

Before coming to Reflections, Dr. Karolak was part of one of the world’s largest facial plastic surgery groups and has become one of the most experienced surgeons in his field. He has successfully performed thousands of facial cosmetic procedures under local anesthesia, a choice that puts the patient first and eliminates the risks associated with general anesthesia. His extensive experience and exceptional skill have elevated his surgical precision to a level where it is as much artistic as it is technical.

.

Dr. Karolak is a DO, a doctor of osteopathic medicine, a type of physician who regards the body as an integrated whole, addressing patients from both a medical and lifestyle perspective. It should then come as no surprise that Dr. Karolak is known for his warmth and compassion. While DO’s have essentially the same training, qualification and authority as MD’s, their education requires an additional 300 to 500 hours of coursework, and they are known to spend a little more time with their patients.

.

Beyond his patients telling you he’s a very a talented surgeon, anyone who’s been in Dr. Karolak’s care will say that his kind nature and serene demeanor made them feel safe and in excellent hands.

.

“Besides the exceptional results that I strive to provide for each of my patients, I think the thing that sets me apart as a surgeon is that I do all of my procedures under local anesthesia. I make sure my patients are safe, calm, comfortable, and very relaxed. People are often amazed at how easy it is to get through the procedure, and are happy to have the option. It’s always best to avoid general anesthesia when possible, which carries risks that can be avoided by using local anesthesia.”

.

Dr. Karolak is a New Jersey native, having grown up in Wayne. When not in the office or keeping up to date on the most advanced facial rejuvenation techniques, he enjoys spending as much time as possible with his children and his wife. He also enjoys playing guitar and piano, writing music, and attending concerts when he can.
