Aging Fast - Dr. Elson to the Rescue! - Nashville, TN

Dr. Elson pays attention to aesthetics and he knows the anatomy of the face. He is extremely knowledgeable, professional, nonjudgmental, and very easy to talk to. Most importantly, he has great technical and artistic skills. He looks at one's face with the eye of the artist as well as a physician and he is definitely one of the nicest, kindest, and most gentle doctors I have ever encountered. When I first met Dr. Elson 18 months ago, I was immediately put at ease by his calm and competent manner. He gave suggestions about Botox and filler placement, answered my questions and he listened to my concerns. During each treatment he explained the steps and alerted me of what I might feel. He was gentle and reassuring throughout and I have never experienced any pain or bruising. There is no problem with parking or wait times ever and his office is tranquil and patient- oriented. My subsequent visits have all followed this same pattern. The only difference now is that I'm no longer nervous. I know first-hand that Dr. Elson is a caring and gifted professional who is excellent at what he does and he has his patients' best interests at heart. On 5 July 2016, I returned to Dr. Elson’s office as I started to feel quite self-conscious about my face again. My last filler injections were in early August 2015 so they lasted almost a year. My main concern were the prominent lines which, like an extension of crow’s feet, were arching downward towards my cheek bones as well as the unsightly long lines along the jaws and the deepening marionette lines and nasolabial folds. All were in need of softening. In very little time and with absolutely no pain and discomfort on my part, Dr. Elson revitalized my face again by injecting Botox between my eye brows and forehead followed by injections of Radiesse for the Nasolabial folds, marionette lines, cheek lines and jowl lines. He gave me the natural results I was looking for. Once again, excellent results by Dr. Elson. Dr. Elson truly deserves his excellent reputation and I feel blessed to have experienced it a number of times as his work comes to perfection and is flawless. There may be other qualified doctors that I could go to between my city and Nashville, but I am happy to make the 1-hour drive to be in Dr. Elson’s care. I’ve always been truly amazed and very happy with the results and that is why I will be returning to Dr. Elson for advice on all matters regarding my aging face as well as future injections. I hereby give my highest recommendation of Dr. Elson to anyone who is considering Botox, fillers or both.

5 out of 5 stars Radiesse

Dr. Elson and Radiesse Erased 10 Years from my Face. Nashville, TN

My experience with Dr. Elson was simply excellent. After examining my face, Dr. Elson suggested injections of Radiesse to reduce the nasolabial folds and marionette grooves. He explained to me that Radiesse provided natural "filling" of these folds, that the new Radiesse already contained a numbing agent, that it was safe, hypoallergenic and usually lasting many months. With great precision, Dr. Elson injected the Radiesse gently and painlessly into my nasolabial folds and marionette grooves. I felt absolutely no pain or discomfort and the entire treatment took only about 10-15 minutes. When finished, Dr. Elson held up a mirror in front of my face and I almost couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the remarkable improvement in the appearance of my lower face. I saw a refreshed look, a natural fullness and a more positive contour of my face…and I could see my cheekbones again! There was no bruising or swelling just minor red marks at the injection sites. Dr. Elson truly turned back the clock and restored me to a time gone by. He is the BEST at what he does and I will always be thankful that I found Dr. Elson. He is a result-oriented professional with an eye for perfection, a caring, skilled, meticulous, welcoming and humble doctor who is passionate about what he does and genuinely cares about his patients and their results. Those qualities are the hallmarks of what I deem a GREAT doctor. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Elson without any reservations. If you are looking for a doctor whose artful skills are unsurpassed and is an expert in the latest procedures, products and advances in treating the aging face, look no further.

Dr. Elson Worked Another Miracle on This Face. Nashville, TN

5 out of 5 stars Rosacea Treatment

Much Needed Second Opinion for Rosacea-Acne, Nashville, TN

Dr. Elson represents the rare mix of a world-renowned Dermatologist who is not only the absolute master of his craft but who is also a most caring, personable and approachable physician most patients can only hope for and few ever find. He is a soft-spoken, quiet professional who exudes lightheartedness, warmth and calmness; one who listened carefully to my concerns and explained the issues on hand in easy to understand language. After examining my face and asking pertinent questions, Dr. Elson advised me to stop all eight (8) products previously prescribed by the other dermatologist and to only use Cetaphil for cleansing and the 3 La Peau skin care products (Night, Day, Eyes). He also prescribed Azelex cream to apply as needed. Being of the mistaken belief that “more is better”, I was a bit skeptical at first but I followed Dr. Elson’s instructions. Lord and behold, within 2 weeks I could see an amazing improvement on my cheeks. The redness and inflammation had disappeared and the pustules and papules decreased in number, severity and size each day. Today my skin is normal, smooth, and healthy again. I owe Dr. Elson a huge debt of gratitude for not only healing the Rosacea-Acne but for restoring my self-esteem as well. Dr. Elson is not after money. His only concern is to help patients. My highest recommendation is hereby extended. M. B., Clarksville, TN
