These days, everyone is obsessed with looking youthful. Not only does it help us feel young and alive inside, but it actually helps us advance in our personal dealings and in life, in general. However, it has become hard to maintain a youthful skin nowadays with so much pollution and stress. These factors are known as causes of skin problems such as acne, discoloration, and signs of aging including fine lines and volume loss which eventually leads to sagging.
There will always be skin care products in the market that could help target these problems. However, it takes forever for these products to work. Paying a visit to a dermatologist could be tricky because some procedures lead to odd-looking and unnatural results. We cannot say if some are even safe at all! Of course, we don't want that to happen to us as it is always best to rediscover our beauty the natural way.

Thankfully, there are still non-invasive procedures that could give a fresh, new look without any unwanted and drastic changes in one's physical features. With this aim of rediscovering natural beauty, The Skin Specialist - a skin care clinic founded by Dr. Jean Marquez - has launched safe and effective treatments using non-invasive techniques and state of the art technology. They offer cutting-edge advanced laser, light, tightening, and lifting treatments as well as anti-aging, vein, whitening and slimming services.

“I am a strong advocate of natural beauty, meaning if patients undergo enhancements, it should be non-invasive and must have the most natural-looking results,” Dr. Jean explained. In short, the aesthetician’s goal should be to highlight the patient’s assets and hide the flaws, cognizant of each person’s unique features. “At the core of these non-invasive treatments is the use of such injectables as dermal fillers and Botulinum toxin, which are becoming the modern alternative to going under the knife,” she said.

Allergan’s Juvederm Voluma® with Lidocaine, for example, is a formulation that temporarily helps restore facial volume that has diminished due to weight loss or age-related facial fat loss. Through volume restoration, the face becomes more contoured: Cheeks become fuller, cheekbones look more defined, and the jawline appears more chiseled.
Juvederm Voluma®’s key ingredient is hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occuring substance in the human body known for its exceptional hydrating ability. The formulation rejuvenates the face and helps reduce – if not eliminate – fine lines, mimicking the result of a facelift.
Done properly, Juvederm Voluma, combined with Allergan’s Botox, produces a natural-looking shine instead of the stiff expression many have come to be afraid of. The best part? The procedure takes only about an hour, but the effects last for up to 18 to 24 months - semi permanent yet long lasting.

Dr. Jean adds that patients can now look forward to better results because most doctors specializing in aesthetic treatments have thoroughly studied the elements balance and symmetry, resulting in well-cultivated taste for beauty. Plus, there are a lot of new and effective products that deliver natural and long lasting effects.

She cites semi-permanent fillers like Juvederm Voluma® as an example “It’s safe and painless and doesn’t have the scary complications of permanent fillers,” she said, adding that, “there are also more variations of fillers that can be injected to suit different areas of the face to create natural, three-dimensional effects. Plus it’s easier to inject, so it’s more comfortable to administer, both for patients and doctors.”
