Dr. Mark Ballentyne Dr. Mark Ballentyne Having healthy, youthful skin makes a big difference in how you look and how you feel. The aging process and exposure to the sun can be harsh on your skin. Crow's feet, laugh lines, deeper wrinkles, age spots, rosacea, and dark circles around your eyes are just a few of the things that can develop over the years. These, coupled with unwanted hair and unsightly veins can prevent you from having the smooth perfect skin you want. At the office of New Hampshire plastic surgeon Dr. Lawrence N. Gray, we have a team of four highly specialized skin care experts to help you achieve total skin wellness and beauty.
