12 years in aesthetic medicine
Dr. Bob Ruiz has over 13+ years of experience in the aesthetic medical field; including advanced Botox, temporary and permanent dermal fillers, laser resurfacing, body contouring and bio-identical hormones. He enjoyed a private practice in sunny Arizona which specialized in anti-aging and aesthetic medicine before relocating to Portland for 7.5 years where he became the Medical Director for the largest non-surgical aesthetic practice in the Pacific Northwest.
He is a graduate of Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine and was a founding board member of the Naturopathic Board of Aesthetic Medicine. He is passionate about the subject and believes that for most patients who see naturopathic physicians practicing aesthetics “skin deep beauty is only the beginning.”
Dr. Ruiz is a national lecturer and has appeared on television interviews showcasing the latest aesthetic techniques utilizing cosmetic fillers and non-invasive body contouring. He believes it is never too late to begin the journey of prevention and correction via natural, safe and effective means.
“Being a naturopathic physician, I believe in looking at the patient as a whole person. This holistic approach allows me to develop a treatment plan where I can utilize technology we have here at Derma Health to harness you own body’s ability to rejuvenate. Having suffered severe cystic acne and scaring myself, I know how skin appearance can affect you. I also know what it is like to be a patient and the fear of the unknown and the trust that a patient places in their provider. My treatment plans will never change who you are, they just transform you back into who you were.” –Dr. Bob Ruiz, N.M.D
