In 2001, Garry R. Lee, MD, created the VISION that evolved into Look Younger MD, dedicated to Helping You Look Younger, Without Surgery. It was a time when Botox first became available for wrinkles and no one was trained on how to use it--because Plastic Surgeons and Dermatologists could not be legally trained in the USA prior to FDA Approval.
Realizing its potential, Dr. Lee was among the very first to be trained in this and other non-surgical cosmetic techniques and discovered that the very BEST Plastic Surgeons--were actually in surgery most of the time--having delegated their lower-profit non-surgical treatments to their assistants. Consequently, he was surprised to find that Plastic Surgeons were charging far more than their own assistants, who actually did these non-surgical procedures full-time. The rationale was that since they were Board Certified Plastic Surgeons, that their compensation must be commiserate with their advanced training, if not their actual experience and presumed skill at doing a particular procedure.
This was when Dr. Lee decided to dedicate his entire practice to Helping You Look Younger, Without Surgery. He believes that anyone who does non-surgical procedures part-time will find it difficult to be more skillful than those who do non-surgical cosmetic procedures full-time.
Currently, of the 700+ Botox and Juvederm Clinics here in Nevada, Allergan--the manufacturer--has only selected 3 Clinical Instructors--including Dr. Lee, who has been teaching doctors and nurses since 2008.
Today, Dr. Lee is internationally renowned for helping you look younger, without surgery. He is the 2018 National Award WINNER for the Best Non-Surgical Makeover of the Year for MyFaceMyBody, the Largest and Most Recognized Awards Program in the World. Plastic Surgeon Paul Nassif of TV's Botched was one of the International Panel of Judges who selected the WINNERS from hundreds of Plastic Surgeons, Dermatologists, and Aesthetic Physicians across the country.
Dr. Lee is also the WINNER of The Aesthetic Award as the Best Facial Injectable Enhancement Physician in the USA in 2015 and led the USA to take 2nd Place in the WORLD Competition for Best Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation among 31 of the Top Physicians from 5 continents at the Aesthetic and Anti-Aging Medicine European Congress (AMEC) in Paris, France.
Moreover, in 2019, Dr. Lee was selected the Top Aesthetic Doctor in the USA for the Aesthetic Everything Aesthetic and Cosmetic Medicine Awards, presented in August 2019 at the Beverly Hilton, in Beverly Hills, CA.
Dr. Lee is also an internationally published author, lecturer, inventor, and physician and nurse instructor as a leader in the field of minimally invasive aesthetic medicine.
