Changes in the chin and jawline are some of the first signs of aging that start to get noticed in our 40’s.  Not everyone is structurally blessed with a strong chin and jawline, and if the bony structure is not naturally strong, … Continue Reading

Every day at ReNue, I feel very privileged that I get small glimpses into our patients’ lives.  Today, I want to share a personal journey that really got my attention over the last few months. I often feel very inspired by our patients.
