Dr. Wensley’s passion for medical aesthetics stems from his 23 years of experience in caring for patients with serious chronic medical conditions. His career has been immersed in repairing and maintaining the function of damaged organ systems in his patients so that they may enjoy youthful vigor for as long as possible. With this in mind, it is no surprise Dr. Wensley naturally views the skin as one of the bodies living functioning organ systems. He believes the preservation of skin health and vigorous function with gentle encouragement applied frequently and consistently IS the best method for its continued youthful appearance and beauty.
The DEEPSKIN approach from Dr. Wensley is distinct from that of the plastic surgery or dermatologic surgery schools of thinking where large discrete interventions such as ablating skin with high power lasers, or surgically excising skin and placing implants are the approach. The DEEPSKIN approach is to gently encourage and promote youthful physiology of the skin. Small interventions with no downtime encouraging natural rejuvenation by turning on your own genetically encoded healing programs are far favored over large interventions involving destroying or removing tissue. Improving the cells and tissues of your own body are preferred whenever possible over fillers and toxins made by pharmaceutical companies.
Dr. Wensley spent 23 years in practice regenerating and rejuvenating the immune systems of patients with AIDS and HIV infection. His area of interest is the use of intracellular communication systems to rebuild decimated immune systems. At 33 years of age, he served as chairman of the Department of Medicine at Hollywood Community Hospital, in the heart of the Los Angeles AIDS epidemic. For 18 years he has been licensed and served as director of a high complexity molecular biology and immunochemistry laboratory and has been the principal investigator on numerous clinical trials. Dr. Wensley’s current passion is to take the same scientific rigor required to treat severe illness and apply it to aesthetic medicine, especially in the new frontier of using stem cells and human cell growth factors.
