A Premiere Winnipeg Cosmetic Dermatology, Laser & BodySculpting Specialty Centre
Since 1989, Dermatologist Dr. Earl Minuk has been at the forefront of non-surgical skin rejuvenation. He realized at that time the desire for patients to look younger without lengthy recoveries (downtime) and serious risks associated with surgery. He began using innovative combination treatments for his patients that included collagen fillers, light chemical peels, and topical products such as Retin A and alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA’s) with sun protection to make skin look years younger.
This trend is now the cornerstone of non-surgical care along with Botox, newer more long lasting fillers, lasers and other energy devices. Patients travel from miles away for the insight and experience that Dr. Minuk can provide to reshape and rejuvenate their face without cutting.
Dr. Minuk’s patients understand that it is not the use one particular filler or laser, but rather the application of these tools in combination to achieve the best possible result. You cannot learn the nuances of these techniques and their optimal application at a weekend course, but rather over a lifetime of experience. In addition, the years of teaching other physicians, attending educational meetings with fellow colleagues and use of the latest techniques have resulted in Dr. Minuk being on Winnipeg’s forefront of non-cutting (no surgery) skin rejuvenation.
