Plastic Surgery:


Skinworks: The Art of Beautiful Medicine

Dr. Frances Jang, MD, FRCPC, Dermatology

Dr. Frances Jang has been a qualified dermatologist for almost 25 years, devoting 100% of her clinical practice to cosmetic dermatology. As a lifelong early adopter, Dr. Jang was the first Vancouver dermatologist to employ many emerging innovations, notably the use of intense pulsed light for rosacea, laser hair removal, microdermabrasion, vitamin C serum topically, and most recently, Sculptra. She has been a consistent Canadian leader since the industry’s infancy and takes special interest in the artful and subtle use of combined techniques to evolve the aging face over time. Her emphasis on ancillary skincare, combination treatments, and regular maintenance to create natural results has created an avid and loyal clientele throughout the Lower Mainland and beyond.

“I can now say with confidence that the judicious use of Botox, fillers and skincare not only make an individual look fresher and younger in the short term but with maintenance treatments, delay and perhaps obviate the need for traditional surgery.”

Dr. Jang is a Clinical Associate with the UBC Department of Dermatology and as such, continues to teach both dermatology and plastic surgical residents. She is an active member of numerous dermatologic societies including the Canadian Society of Dermatologic Surgery, Canadian Dermatologic Association, and American Academy of Dermatology, to name a few. In the past, she has served on the Executive of the BCMA Section of Dermatology. In recognition of her significant contribution in support of dermatologic research, Dr. Jang has been granted lifelong membership in the Canadian Dermatologic Foundation.

As one of Canada’s most experienced practitioners of Botox and dermal fillers, Dr. Jang is recognized as one of the top 10 doctors in this field and has achieved platinum-level status with Allergan (manufacturer of Botox and Juvederm). To continually improve Skinworks, she travels regularly to best practices in Montreal, Toronto, San Francisco, New York City, Los Angeles and Washington, DC where she collaborates on new ideas and techniques with other elite cosmetic physicians. Several of these top dermatologists have also visited Skinworks in reciprocal fashion.

Dr. Jang is a prominent spokesperson and appears regularly in print, radio and television. Just this year, she has been quoted in over 30 fashion and health-related magazines and has made numerous appearances on CBC, Breakfast Television and Urban Rush. Her leadership has been recognized by her peer group; she sits on several advisory boards and currently serves as the only female on the editorial panel of the Chronicle of Cosmetic Medicine & Surgery.

"I offer honest, straightforward advice to my patients. I customize safe, effective treatment plans and skin care programs that meet each individual’s needs, lifestyle, and budget which has resulted in a loyal following of patients."

"I am committed to offering my patients the very best in skin care and I invest in continuous training and equipment in order to do so. This includes being at the forefront of advanced laser technologies, as well as treatments and skincare products designed to reverse the effects of aging and sun damage. I attend important international medical conferences in order to stay abreast of the newest treatments and technology. As a leader in the field of cosmetic dermatology I am frequently featured as a medical expert in both local and national media. I have an ongoing commitment to teaching medical students at the University of British Columbia as well as other doctors in the community."
