Revitalize to Look Younger
To look more youthfull…
Today, people are healthier and living longer than ever before. Many of our patients in their 50’s, 60s, 70s and 80s have told us that when they look in the mirror, the person they see looks older than they feel. They want to lead not only a healthy life, but a younger looking one. They want to look as good on the outside as they feel on the inside.
Dr. Patricia Dickerson, with great expertise, performs a variety of cosmetic surgery procedures for patients in our region that wish to look as young as they feel. If you have been considering cosmetic surgery to reverse the signs of aging, you need to understand what procedures can and can’t do.
The most popular procedures
Botox is the most popular non-surgical procedure for all patients. It is used to effectively improve the appearance of frown lines, forehead creases and “crow’s feet.” It relaxes the underlying muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It has been used in the lips for lines. It helps raise the corner of the mouth.
Chemical Peels can repair sun-damaged skin and are widely used with patients who have had ultraviolet light exposure.
Brow Elevation can smooth out wrinkles and correct drooping brows to provide a younger, friendlier appearance.
Laser Peels can provide tighter, less wrinkled skin with a blending of skin tones.

We want you to have a thorough understanding of what procedure or procedures will best help you achieve the results you desire. During your consultation, your doctor will discuss your goals for the surgery, help you select the best procedure and explain your probable outcome of treatment. Your doctor will let you know what can realistically be expected before, during and after your procedure.
We will take your complete medical history and perform an exam. You may be shown before and after photographs of other patients with similar procedures and we may take preoperative photographs of you to evaluate the changes.
What is recovery like?
After Dr. Dickerson performs your cosmetic procedure, healing is a gradual process. Recovery is different for every patient and recovery times for these procedures vary with each procedure. Dr. Dickerson will give you complete post-operative instructions during your consultation.
