Every day, our facial muscles are hard at work, expressing the emotions of our daily lives: excitement, laughter, sadness, anger, surprise. Over time, these repetitive actions of our facial muscles lead to the commonly seen wrinkles, crow’s feet and laugh lines. In addition, the skin on our faces can begin to appear aged because of a loss of volume, causing a sagging or drooping appearance often seen around the mouth as “smile lines.” Add on years of chronic sun exposure and our faces can begin to look older than their years!

Fortunately, modern technology has produced several tools with which we can combat the aging process. We can’t turn back the clock, but we can improve the softness and contour of the face. The result is a more rested, youthful appearance.

Dr. Young is certified by the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine and is pleased to offer several procedures which can reduce the appearance of aging. These include BOTOX® CosmeticJuvederm® injectable dermal filler, and various chemical peels, including the popular Vi Peel.
