Dr Jones is regarded as a keen expert in the diagnosis and treatment of all skin disorders. As an artist and a scientist, Dr Jones is highly sought after for his aesthetic skill and ability to rejuvenate faces with combinations of injectable wrinkle fillers, Botox, and lasers to create extraordinarily natural results that do not appear "overdone". He is the physician of choice for rejuvenating the faces of many leading celebrities, and is the physician responsible for many of the naturally rejuvenated faces that appear in national ad campaigns for Botox and the leading injectable filler, Juvederm.
Dr. Jones has served as a Principal Investigator on many clinical trials in facial aesthetics, including the trials that lead to FDA approval of Juvederm and the new eyelash growth product Latisse. His current FDA research focuses on novel fillers that naturally volumize the cheeks and lips, which atrophy with age.

He received his Batchelor of Science degree with high honors from Tufts University and his Doctorate of Medicine from Baylor College of Medicine.
