Some years ago a patient called to schedule a consultation and in a few sentences she summed up what we all see at one time or another.  “I went to bed thinking I looked pretty good, but when I got up this morning and looked in the mirror I said what the heck happened!?  My face fell!  Overnight.”

Well here’s what happened:

As we age, the lower jaw loses bone and the collagen in the skin becomes less effective.  This results in saggy skin, nasolabial fold, marionette lines and undereye troughing.  The combines to make us look drawn and tired.

The solution is to restore volume to the cheeks.  That creates a domino effect that improves the undereyes, lifts the skin, minimizes the nasolabial folds and marionette lines, and improves the jowls.

My treatment for that is to inject Radiesse, an FDA-approved longer-lasting filler, in the cheek area.  This is a treatment I have performed on over 5,000 patients for more than 15 years.

Here are three great examples:  (Individual results may vary because all faces are different.)

It's not magic...just good science artfully applied.

Questions?  Call JoAnn and schedule a complimentary consultation with me.

    I had about 3-4 visits with a dermatologist who is available only in La Jolla/Genessee area, to see if I had any skin cancer issues. I need someone closer, but am not really in the market for “fix-ups’” as I am 73 and don’t really care. But I do have patches on my scalp that might need to be removed. Do you do regular, old-fashioned skin care as well as cosmetic fixes? Thanks. Judith
