Crow’s feet. Forehead wrinkles. Lines around the mouth. The dreaded “11’s” between the brows. While some people feel comfortable with these signs of aging and wouldn’t change a thing, others would like to minimize them.
Practicing an at home beauty routine by using skincare products such as serums, anti-wrinkle creams and moisturizers is an important step to accelerate cell renewal and restore elasticity to the skin. Combining this regime with products that have a high SPF and avoiding the sun as much as possible is also key.
Starting at age 25 we lose one percent of our collagen. When you reach your 30s often the first signs of sun damage, skin deflation and wrinkles begin to surface.
Skinworks Dermapure Aesthetic Medicine Clinic offers non-surgical options to help bring back a more youthful looking you.
Renowned Vancouver dermatologist Dr. Frances Jang founded Skinworks in 2003. In 2017 she partnered with Dermapure, Canada’s leader in aesthetic medicine, to help broaden her offerings and to support the increasing demand for non-surgical cosmetic treatments.
Located on West 41st Avenue near Dunbar Street, Skinworks Dermapure has earned an excellent reputation. For the past 11 years the clinic has held the title of Best Place for a Non-Surgical Makeover. The Georgia Straight newspaper presents this prestigious award based on the “Best of Vancouver” public vote.
A step ahead of her field in both laser and injection treatments, Dr. Frances Jang has built an enviable reputation across the country. She has set the gold standard for injections, and in terms of technology, specifically in the aesthetic medicine field. She is constantly on the lookout for best practices that will help benefit her clientele.
Renowned for her artistic sensibility and innovation in her use of combination non-surgical modalities, Dr. Jang recently visited Seoul, South Korea to learn about reshaping the Asian face. She considers the “long term approach” in terms of caring for her patients, thus creating natural age-appropriate beauty.
Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Adelyn Ho joined the clinic in 2017. She specializes in rejuvenating injections and laser treatment of imperfectionsand rosacea, along with minor surgery such as mole removals. In addition, she has her own plastic surgery practice in Richmond.
Skinworks Dermapure is at the forefront of cosmetic rejuvenation. The clinic delivers visible, safe and natural results.
Rejuvenating injections include facial fillers such as hyaluronic acid fillers and neurotoxins such as Botox Cosmetic or Dysport. Fillers are used to replace volume in areas that have become hollow and flat to lift and smooth the skin. Treatment areas may include the temples, forehead, under eye hollows, cheeks, nasolabial folds, lower facial lines, lips, chin and jawline.
Volumizing injections are often combined with neuromodulator injections to provide immediate rejuvenating effects. They are particularly useful for adding volume to lips, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, cheeks and other areas of the face.
Dr. Jang says, “The way we use fillers at Skinworks Dermapure has changed dramatically over the last decade, in that we are no longer exclusively chasing wrinkles and folds. This often led to an unnatural appearance, discouraging new and existing patients. We are using fillers to support, and reshape features to optimize facial beauty and youth; using fillers in this way often slims the face rather than creating a bulky, puffy look…a really satisfying paradigm shift.”
“Studies show that the average person looks seven years younger after treatment.” Dr. Frances Jang
Dr. Jang regards Botox Cosmetic as her workhorse. She says, “It benefits essentially all faces. Interestingly, we have observed that this retraining of muscles makes people not only look but feel better as well.”
“I understand that patients coming to me want to be the best version of themselves regardlessof age. Judicious use of injectables can create a fresher, softer, more attractive appearance,” she adds.
“Choose a doctor who inspires you.” Dr. Adelyn Ho
Dr. Ho says, “I love the marriage between non-surgical and surgical rejuvenation and I feel that my training as a plastic surgeon provided me with a unique set of skills and a different perspective when injecting, compared to other practitioners.”
“Outside of the clinic, I am a busy mom of two so there is not a lot of time for hobbies! With that being said, I make it a priority to work on my personal health by working out with my trainer twice a week, hiking with friends, and jumping on my Peloton spin bike at home. I do really enjoy cooking and anything related to crafts, such as sewing and knitting,” says Dr. Ho.
Listening to her patients is paramount. “My goal is to ensure they are at ease and that they understand what can realistically be achieved with our proposed treatment plan. I aim to provide natural, rejuvenated results.”
Dr. Jang has three grown children who are all medical professionals. She is a cyclist; loves to travel, and has strong passion for health and wellness.
Dr. Jang’s most important goal is her patients’ happiness. She is honoured that they trust her and her team to deliver evidence based advice and treatments.
She says, “While I remain committed to medical science, my love for all things beautiful along with my decades of delivering full time patient care, has resulted in a loyal, long standing patient clientele.”
