An Experienced Anti-Aging Physician Serving Vancouver and Burnaby Patients
Dr. Perhez Jaffer, the Medical Director of Heights Laser Centre, supports patients with his years of experience as an anti-aging physician, and family practitioner. He offers non-surgical solutions that help those in his care look and feel their best, including dermal fillers and other injectables, lip augmentation, fractional skin resurfacing and hair removal, and fat reduction procedures.
Dr. Jaffer is committed to providing top-notch treatment to Vancouver and Burnaby patients in a relaxing and welcoming environment. He established Heights Laser Centre as a space where all can enjoy a spa-like experience as they pursue their aesthetic vision. Patients rely on and recommend him for his expertise, attention to detail, and calm and gentle manner.
Approach as a Cosmetic Physician
Dr. Jaffer designs treatment around his patients’ individual goals. During consultations, he gets to know their concerns, evaluates their needs, and discusses treatment options in a clear and transparent manner.
Broadly, Dr. Jaffer’s focus is helping Vancouver and Burnaby patients look refreshed, youthful, and attractive without a drastic change in their appearance. Through Dr. Jaffer’s work as a cosmetic physician, he emphasizes conservative care and targets natural-looking and subtle results. He often uses a staged approach: conducting procedures, giving results time to develop, and evaluating whether further treatment is necessary. This ensures that outcomes are graceful, refined, and never overdone.
Patients choose treatment with Heights Laser Centre in part because it is a physician-led practice. Dr. Jaffer believes in only using technologies and products that are scientifically proven to offer effective and safe results. His commitment to patient comfort, health, and satisfaction contributes to a better experience and outcome.
Areas of Focus
As a cosmetic physician, Dr. Jaffer concentrates on non-surgical, non-invasive treatments for Vancouver and Burnaby patients. These include:
Dermal fillers and other injectables. Over time, the face can develop wrinkles and lose its natural, youthful fullness. Dr. Jaffer addresses these signs of aging with products such as JUVÉDERM®, which adds volume to features and fills in wrinkles, and BOTOX®, which can temporarily erase facial lines and furrows.
Lip augmentation. Dr. Jaffer is the creator of the Love Your Lips™ treatment, a mini-lip augmentation exclusively available at Heights Laser Centre. The Love Your Lips™ technique offers patients a fuller, more noticeable pout that is more natural-looking and less expensive than a traditional lip augmentation.
Fat reduction procedures. Stubborn areas of body fat can persist even with proper diet and exercise. Dr. Jaffer’s work as a cosmetic physician can help patients get rid of this unwanted fat. One option he offers is treatment with BELKYRA®, an injectable product proven to eliminate fat cells permanently from beneath the chin. Another popular solution, CoolSculpting®, freezes fat cells and tightens the contour of features such as the abdomen, flanks, chin, bra line, and thighs.
Education and Training
Dr. Jaffer has been in practice as a physician for over 20 years. At the beginning of his career, he fulfilled his lifelong aspiration of becoming a doctor by earning his medical degree from the University of British Columbia. He followed this accomplishment with post-graduate training through a rotating internship at Regina General Hospital. He then successfully completed the Canadian College of Family Physicians examination and finally, most recently, achieved the Diploma in Practical Dermatology with Distinction from Cardiff University.
Dr. Jaffer is licensed by the Medical Council of Canada and the College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia and has completed the United States Medical Licensing Examination. He is highly trained in photofacial and skin rejuvenation procedures, and Allergan®, the manufacturer of BOTOX®, JUVÉDERM®, and other leading cosmetic products, recognizes him as an expert injector.
Ongoing education opportunities in the latest techniques help Dr. Jaffer stay up-to-date as a cosmetic physician. He regularly participates in the American Society of Laser Medicine and Surgery Annual Meeting, St. Paul’s Hospital Family Practice Review, and the Annual Multidisciplinary Cosmetic Surgery Meeting.
