This is done through both patient education along with Dr. Ennis’ artistry, as his artistic background allows him to understand the subtle changes that occur with aging. Utilizing the most advanced techniques, he will discuss with each patient the underlying issues that make us appear to have aged and how he is able to give them a younger, more natural look while avoiding the pulled or stretched appearance of many of the older style facial procedures.
