Dr. Charlotte Lefebvre received her medical license from the University of Montreal and completed her residency in general practice at the University of Calgary. Having been a locum and walk-in physician in the city of Calgary, she also worked in the department of cardiology, internal medicine and neonatology at the Rockyview General and Peter Lougheed hospitals. Dr. Lefebvre joined the Dr. Young and Wouters vein and laser clinic in 2017.
We Measure Success One Client at a Time!
As a patient, you will receive the finest quality of vein and skin care treatments in a warm and caring environment. At Calgary Vein & Laser, we practice anti-aging medicine with one critical difference.
“We combine the newest cosmetic treatments with a unique holistic point of view,” explains Dr. Wouters. “We look at our patients' overall health and lifestyle, then complement their therapies with practical advice on enhancing health and slowing down aging.”
That advice includes detailed information about the vitamins, minerals, essential oils, essential amino acids, herbs and lifestyle changes that can extend the benefits of the cosmetic treatment. The result: a real difference in patients’ health, appearance, confidence and quality of life.
Replenishing at a Cellular Level
A member of both the American College for Advancement of Medicine (ACAM) and the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M), Dr. Young adds that aging begins at a cellular level.
“To defend against this aging,” he explains, “it’s important to replenish the substances - the hormones and nutrients - that the cells require to maintain optimal function.”
Soft, Non-Laser Approach to Age-Related Skin Changes
As part of this balanced approach to anti-aging medicine, Drs. Young and Wouters are pleased to offer the ZO-Obagi® skin health line. An at-home treatment program, the ZO-Obagi® line offers a softer, non-laser approach to age related skin changes.
“While cosmetic laser resurfacing is still the treatment of choice in certain cases, it isn’t for everyone," explains Dr. Wouters. "Each individual has unique requirements and must suit their lifestyle. The ZO-Obagi® skin health line offers an alternative – it’s particularly effective for those with sun spots, large pores, acne, sun damaged skin and difficult pigmentation problems.”
Customized Peels and Tissue Fillers
Other treatments offered by Calgary Vein & Laser to remove facial wrinkles and slow down skin aging include customized peels and tissue fillers like Restylane® and Juvéderm®.
Calgary Vein Treatment from an Experienced Team
Drs. Young and Wouters also help those suffering from unwanted facial and leg vessels. And while there are a variety of treatments available, they explain that the VariLite Laser Treatment is the most appropriate choice for facial spider veins. The veins are simply and effectively removed with no bruising or down time.
Relieve Pain, Fatigue & Swelling Caused by Varicose Veins
Sclerotherapy is the gold standard for treatment of leg vessels. Medication is injected into the veins, causing them to collapse and eventually disappear over a 2 to 4 week period. Not just a cosmetic treatment, this simple office procedure will also relieve the pain, fatigue and swelling caused by varicose veins. Even larger, deeper varicose veins can be eliminated without surgery. Echosclerotherapy, in which the medication injections are guided by ultrasound, is effective, painless and involves minimal downtime.
At the Forefront of Technology
To keep up with the latest developments and master the newest techniques in the field of anti-aging, both doctors travel extensively to international meetings and conferences on laser therapy and anti-aging medicine. They are also frequently requested to give presentations on the use of lasers for the treatment of varicose veins on both the face and legs.
By pursuing consistently superior results and unsurpassed personalized attention, we make turning back time safe, easy and effective!
