Aesthetic medicine is an ever-evolving field of medicine. The past decade has delivered dramatic growth and development in surgical and nonsurgical modalities of treatment alike. However, this is particularly apparent in the development of approaches to nonsurgical modalities of treatment. This exists because of the great patient demand to either reduce or remove the visible effects of aging on the face (skin laxity, sagging tissue, and lines and wrinkles), without resorting to surgery.

Jill K. Jones, RN, CPSN, completed her nursing education in 1986 from DeKalb School of Nursing in Clarkston, GA. The initial 13 years of her nursing career were focused on plastic surgical nursing as she worked alongside a plastic surgeon providing every aspect of perioperative patient care and practice management as well as providing nonsurgical aesthetic services to the practice's patient base. In 1993, Ms. Jones earned her certification as a Certified Plastic Surgical Nurse (CPSN) through the American Society of Plastic Surgical Nurses, Inc. (ASPSN), and has maintained her CPSN status since. She has served on the National Board of Directors for the ASPSN and continues to be an active member of the society as well as serving in leadership roles.
