Dr. Baljeet Purewal, owner of Fresh Face & Eye, is a board-certified oculoplastic surgeon specializing in the face with a focus on eyelid surgery and non-surgical facial rejuvenation. As a toddler, she always wanted to become a doctor to help others and solve problems. She also loved the arts, so merging these two worlds led her to become a plastic surgeon.
You can rejuvenate your face with minimal invasive techniques and preventive treatments. And for some patients, eyelid surgery can make a refreshed, youthful change.
Baljeet’s approach is unique for facial rejuvenation, and her practice focuses on the four R’s. Doing a little of each will give you healthy and youthful skin because they complement each other.
1. Relax: Use Botox to relax the muscles to avoid pulling on your brows. Frequency: Every 3 to 4 months.
2. Refill: After the age of 30, we lose collagen. We can refill the small amounts of collagen lost. Frequency: Every 9 to 12 months.
3. Reposition: We use Ultra-therapy, a non-invasive high frequency ultrasound treatment to tighten and lift. Frequency: Every two years.
4. Resurface: For the skin’s texture, it is important to remove the dead skin of the outer layer. Exfoliate with chemical peels, micro-needling or our Halo laser which helps stimulate collagen, reduce fine lines, and even out skin tones. Frequency: Every 2 to 6 months.
“When you resurface your skin, the light reflects off it and you get that glow,” she says. “You are nourishing your tissue.”
Baljeet shares a simple rule for great skin. “I believe strongly in good skin care,” she says. “It starts with wearing sunblock and a good retinol. I want to be able to give to others what I would want for myself.”

Why did you choose Chatham for your practice? “I love the vibe of the town,” says Baljeet. “I always loved this area. I was looking for a space that feels like a home versus a cold office building with an elevator. I wanted to create a space that feels inviting.”
