Dr. Steven Jones
Dr. Steven Jones began his journey into healthcare in 1999 when he graduated from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine. He then opened a private practice in Kamloops in 2000. For over 17 years, he worked meticulously, providing his patients with prolotherapy, or proliferation therapy, which involves injecting a solution into a joint space, ligament or tendon insertion to stimulate the body’s natural healing response to relieve pain and improve ligament laxity.
With his extensive understanding of musculature and anatomy, aesthetic medicine was a natural and effortless progression. Aside from successfully treating hundreds of patients with cosmetic procedures, Dr. Jones was among the first to launch platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy in Vancouver in 2012 and he remains an industry leader. He brings more than 17 years of injection experience to NuAGE Laser & Skin Care and offers Dermal Fillers and Botox.
He says his favourite part of his job is, “fixing poorly injected fillers.” With his vast background in naturopathic medicine, Dr. Jones believes you can look the way you feel inside in a natural, youthful and, above all else, healthy way.
