Caren Kunda LME, MA, CMLT

Cosmetic Injection Specialist

Ms. Kunda has been an injection specialist for over 11 years along with having over 21 years of experience as an Operating Room First Assistant. Being a Certified Laser Technician and Medical Aesthetician, she finds the ability to enhance someone’s natural facial features rewarding.



Drawing on her love of art and tailoring knowledge, Caren, Dermacare's newest Cosmetic Injection Specialist feels “joy to be able to design, educate, and guide someone to refresh their facial glow."

Although a native Arizonan, Caren lived in Seattle for many years. She studied tailoring in school and combined that knowledge with her love of art to create porcelain dolls with intricate sculpting and detail.

“I never thought I would be applying that knowledge and training, with needles and design, to the rejuvenation, of the aging face,” says Caren of her academics. “I believe it’s important, to be able to visualize the end result, prior to injecting."

As a child, I always had the desire to help others. It wasn't until my family moved from Ohio to Arizona that I realized I would be able to achieve that desire. Once I obtained my nursing degree, I knew that would be the venue that would fulfill that passion. My compassion and ambition is shown every day while working with my patients. Working at Dermacare Cosmetic Surgery with Dr. Rod is extremely rewarding. I look forward daily to meeting with each patient and helping them achieve their cosmetic goals.
