Facial rejuvenation is of increasing interest to both men and women. People can't really control how they age. A lot of it is related to genetics, sun exposure, things beyond our control. People are trying to look like a parent that they don't necessarily want to look like. Facial rejuvenation is really of interest. The beauty of this is that there's a broad spectrum of treatments. We have non-invasive, minimally invasive and some surgical treatments.

Our non-invasive include things like skincare, which are very basic, very good for skin health and for appearance. Minimally invasive, we have our injectables, which include fillers to fill creases in the face, to volumize the face, to turn around deflation that occurs with aging in the face. We also have our Botox-like medications that can smooth active dynamic lines in the face.

Bumping up to surgical options, we can treat the eyes. Certainly this is a big hereditary area where there's fullness in the upper or lower lids, difficulty with makeup, looking tired, looking angry, things beyond an individual's control when they're not feeling a certain way but they're being perceived a certain way. We can rejuvenate the eyes. Certainly probably the thing that we're all known for plastic surgery wise is facelifts and necklifts.

What age group is coming in? I'd say people even in their mid-40's plus are coming in for surgical treatments. Minimally invasive, we treat people as young as their 20's and 30's. The age group is broad. I treat older 20-year-olds and I treat young 80-year-olds. Really there's something that can almost fit anybody's bill. It's really customized and the best thing to do is come in and just talk about it, what are your goals and what we can do to achieve those goals.
