Building a Good Foundation

At ReNue, we work hard at always improving our unique and free consultations, to increase your satisfaction with treatments.  We have tried many terms to describe the need to keep the face from looking tired, saggy, sad or angry, but I think the most relevant term is “foundation.” This is what I mean…. like houses, if the concrete foundation is strong it will last longer and support a bigger and better house.  Some people are blessed with a good natural foundation like high cheek bones, a tight under eye, strong jaw line and chin.  Others are not so fortunate and … Continue Reading
