Charles E. Moore, MD

Charles E. Moore, MD is our consulting supervisor.  A member of The American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Dr. Moore has practiced plastic and reconstructive surgery for over thirty years.  Conservative in his recommendations and claims, he nonetheless embraces the philosophy that it is no vanity to strive to “look as good as you feel.”  His emphasis is that good skin care practiced over time is the best means of maintaining a healthy, youthful appearance.  At intervals, as indicated, the application of both older and more recent  technologies, such as the Candela YAG laser, are appropriate to the achievement of a beneficial ongoing result.  Surgery itself may be indicated, but much else can be conveniently and safely recommended to keep you looking as good as you are.  Remember, the sun, smoking, and of course time and genetics play their damaging roles, but it is never “too late.”  There is no “magic wand,” but much can be happily accomplished.   And even as the clock ticks, with proper attention you can have the pleasure of perceiving your skin getting better and better over time, rather than otherwise.  It takes only care; and it is always our pleasure to assist anyone on such a path, toward such a positive, life-enhancing goal.
