The Aging Face: Complications, Causes and Treatments
The appearance of the face and neck typically changes with age. Loss of muscle tone, thinning skin and cumulative sun exposure can give the face a drooping appearance. That same UV radiation can lead to cancerous lesions of the face and neck.
Join otolaryngologist Scott Shadfar, M.D., INTEGRIS ENT Edmond, as he discusses methods of cancer surveillance, as well as preventive and rejuvenating treatments for facial aging. Please join us at 10 a.m. at the Edmond Senior Center at Mitch Park, 2733 Marilyn Williams Drive.
Reservations are required for all events unless otherwise noted. All events are held in Oklahoma City unless otherwise noted.
