Skin Care Q&A with Dr. Chinoy

dr-riyana-chinoyQ: Where did you grow up?

A: I grew up in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Q: How did you end up at Simon Fraser University?

A: I always knew that I wanted to be a physician, so I went there because they had the best Kinesiology/pre-med program in North America at the time.

Q: What drew you to the field of cosmetics and anti-aging?

A: Even from a young age, I was fascinated by the aging process and the steps that we can take to stop it or to slow it down. It also makes me happy to see that others will feel beautiful on the outside because of cosmetics, and it’s amazing how much that can affect a person on the inside, too.

Q: How did you end up in Arizona?

A: I attended medical school here, and since the weather was great, I decided to stay here!

Q: Tell us a little bit about the conferences that you attend regarding anti-aging and aesthetics.

A: I go to these conferences because I love to learn and keep up with the newest and most cutting-edge skin care treatments.

Q: Are you affiliated with any associations?

A: I am affiliated with the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians, the Arizona Natruopathic Medical Association, and the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, to name a few.

Q: What is one piece of advice you can offer all your clients?

A: I always tell them to drink lots and lots of water! It’s the best thing that you can do for your skin. There are so many benefits—externally and internally—because your hormones, organs, muscles, tendons, and joints will also respond positively to a lot of water. Aim to drink about one gallon per day.

Q: What is your favorite anti-aging treatment?

A: I love the liquid face lift because it will take decades off of anyone’s face!

Q: To whom would you recommend Botox?

A: I would recommend Botox to anyone and everyone (preferably those who are over 21 years old) who wants to prevent wrinkles and to anyone who wants to soften the lines and wrinkles already present.

Q: What is your favorite SkinMedica product?

A: I love HA5! It will instantly plump the skin and will benefit any skin type.
