Philosophy

“As a Harvard-trained doctor and researcher, I am at the forefront of cutting-edge technology. From my Asian heritage, I also learned a more holistic approach to health;  Food, herbs and daily lifestyle choices can have a profound impact on your skin and health. This means that you have the power to change your skin, and your life. To do this, you have to take care of your skin, especially as you get older. Aging gracefully means taking care of yourself – whether it’s using the right skin care basics or doing in-office procedures – not simply giving up. I learned this from my 98-year-old grandmother, who wore lipstick and heels well into her 80s. Good skin, like good physical and mental health, is not a goal. It’s a process that constantly evolves and must be continually worked on.”
