Dr. Mark Richards provides an aesthetic and health-oriented medical practice that improves all stages of life. Since 1990, Ageless Impressions has helped countless look great and feel better about themselves, while enhancing their quality of life. Patients travel from across the U.S. and around the globe to take advantage of his skills and expertise in plastic surgery.

He is an expert in non-invasive office procedures including “lunchtime threadlifts,” a variety of fillers, neurotoxin treatments, ultrasound therapies, UltraSlim, photo-facials, chemical peels and more.

He also offers surgical rejuvenation of face, body and breasts. Dr. Richards invented and first published the minimal incision arm lift technique and lectures internationally on salvaging unsatisfactory facelifts. He is highly sought-after for correcting facelifts while also creating natural and attractive facial rejuvenations for the “never operated upon” group of men and women. He received national media publicity for Linda Tripp’s extensive revisional facial surgery. Published articles on body contouring using Vaser Liposuction led him to the international medical lecture circuit.

He is a recognized expert, lecturer, and educator on antiaging bio-identical hormone pellet therapy. The technique has been used for over 75 years and provides a sustained natural release of deficient hormones. Dr. Richards has directly and indirectly provided thousands of men and women the opportunity to regain health and better function through balanced hormone supplementation that combats the epidemic of low testosterone in both sexes.

“Anti-aging therapies can help men and women with increased energy, improved sleep, decreased anxiety and irritability and better physical and mental functioning,” says Dr. Richards. “My goal is creating attractiveness and health through the restoration and enhancement of appearance and function that leads to patient happiness.”
