MEET DR.ANDREA GODOY A LEADING DERMATOLOGIST FROM BRAZIL
After graduating from the University of Medical Sciences of Santos in Brazil in 1999 with a Specialist Medical Degree in Dermatology, Dr. Godoy has spent years discovering the most cutting-edge technologies and treatments to keep her patients looking young and beautiful. She has traveled all over the world attending countless workshops, conventions and pieces of training (i.e. the Photo Dynamic Therapy in Milan, 2005.)
As a top Dermatologists for Brazilian Supermodels, Dr. Godoy has also co-authored “Foundations on Dermatology” and “Treatise on Dermatological Surgery, Cosmetic and Laser.”
With her years of innovative and dynamic experience, Dr. Godoy discovered one very important aspect-people are fascinated with the Brazilian beauty. Largely based around the quality of their skin, it seems as if Brazilian women are not only beautiful, but they don’t even seem to age! Dr. Godoy began to recognize that even though the technology and medical treatments that she used were no different than the ones available in other countries- her Brazilian patients still had a tendency to look much younger, with far more resilient skin.
A Path To Discovery...
One evening, Dr. Godoy was approached by her receptionist, Jessica- who at the time was approaching her mid-40s. After working with Dr. Godoy in a setting surrounded by ageless and beautiful women, Jessica confessed that she was depressed about her signs of aging. She would find herself pulling up her skin wondering what it would be like to appear as if she were in her 20s again. Her looks and her self-consciousness in her aging were beginning to dominate her life. Jessica wondered if her aging appearance would lead her down the path of loneliness. Would any man ever find her attractive again? How could she compete with the ageless beauty she was surrounded by? In a society that glamorizes youth and beauty, Jessica was not alone with her feelings.
Jessica considered Botox therapy. After reflecting with Jessica, she began to question alternative avenues centered around the impressive skin properties of her Brazilian patients.
Was it genetics?
Was it the Brazilian climate?
Was it something in the way that they cared for themselves?
Dr. Godoy was determined to find out.
Genetically, Brazilian women come from different backgrounds. So they don’t necessarily share the same DNA. As for the climate, the tropical humidity of Brazil is beneficial to the skin. However, there are many other countries with the same climate, yet their women are not nearly as beautiful and youthful as the Brazilian women.
With those theories out of the way, Dr. Godoy began interviewing her Brazilian clients to uncover any lifestyle secrets that may contribute to their timeless beauty. Amazingly, Dr. Godoy began to notice a pattern. Like many women from other cultures, Brazilian women tend to care for their skin with home remedies.
Yet, there was one varying aspect from the other cultures: ingredients.
