Experience & Reputation Matter
“I am able to apply my knowledge of facial anatomy with the appropriate aesthetic procedure to assure the best results for every patient. I believe non-surgical procedures should enhance a patient’s natural beauty while going unnoticed to those around them. The specialty of aesthetic medicine was my path. It has the perfect triad of medicine, artistry and psychology. I love building long term relationships with my patients while helping them achieve and maintain a naturally beautiful self image”.
“A makeover doesn’t have to be extreme! Injectables and laser treatments cause virtually no downtime and can produce significant results. Our goal at New Image Cosmetic & Medical Centre is to give patients a look that is more attractive, younger, and totally natural.” – Dr. Lorne Poon
