Solutions that Respect Your Skin

Rosacea is a difficult skin condition to treat because the experience of each patient is so unique. Many of our patients come to us after unsuccessfully treating their rosacea elsewhere. Like them, you are frustrated from failed attempts and seek solutions that actually work.

Fortunately, the expertise of our board-certified dermatologists allows us to create a treatment protocol that can effectively control the visible symptoms of rosacea, without damaging your already compromised skin. Our dermatologists have been extensively trained to treat difficult conditions like rosacea, unlike other doctors and practitioners.

We start by performing a thorough skin assessment to examine your skin, as well as discussing with you any lifestyle habits that may be adversely affecting your skin. One or more treatments are then recommended.

We have served the men and women in Toronto for over 10 years. Our methodical approach to skincare, based on specialized training that only dermatologists undergo, has allowed us to obtain a high satisfaction rate from our patients. As a result, we have formed long term partnerships with our patients, who return to us regularly to achieve and maintain their aesthetic goals.

Unlike other skin conditions, rosacea cannot resolve on its own nor can it be controlled with products from your local drugstore. In fact, self-treatment can often have the opposite effect, worsening symptoms. Rosacea flare-ups can be detrimental to your self confidence. Not even makeup can effectively hide symptoms, and can even make them worse. With our custom tailored treatment plan, you'll finally be able to calm and soothe your skin for long lasting relief from rosacea.

While rosacea is not curable, the symptoms visible during flare-ups can be dramatically reduced with our customized skincare and laser treatments, with improvement appearing within a few weeks.
