Rosacea is a common skin disease that represents a disorder of adnexal (hair and oil gland) structures affecting adults that has a variety of clinical findings such as facial redness, flushing, papules and pustules that resemble acne, eye symptoms and phymatous (lumpy bumpy changes) to the nose. The pathogenesis of rosacea is multifactorial, but is clearly related in part to vascular hyperreactivity. Rosacea patients typically give a history of easy blushing and report a gradual reddening of their complexion. Foods and medications that induce facial vasodilation seem to accelerate the development of rosacea. thermal stimuli are the cause of food-induced flushing in most patients, i.e. it is the temperature of the coffee or tea rather than the caffeine that causes a blush. Patients with rosacea may also have hyperirritable skin. As a result they can experience stinging and burning from cosmetics and topicals. Studies show that increased transepidermal water loss in perioral dermatitis, but not in malar rosacea.
Ablative Skin Resurfacing
Due to the effects of sun exposure, loss of dermal support structures and damage from the elements and irritants in our environment we are all prone to collecting fine lines and wrinkles. It is not appropriate to go “under the knife” – too often, patients who pursue aggressive surgical approaches are left looking like a different person and their results fade away to a “pillow face” like appearance.
Our philosophy is that a part of aging gracefully isn’t to change how you look but to improve textures, skin tones, and volume so that areas of the face that tend to age in a more accelerated fashion are instead restored to an appropriate, youthful glow.
Resurfacing of the skin allows you to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles through renewing the outer layer of skin and stimulating collagen production in the deeper levels of the skin.
Different resurfacing modalities exist and we are proud to offer the most effective ablative and non-ablative resurfacing modalities.
Sun Damage Management
One of the most important principles of managing the health and vibrancy of your skin is to use the appropriate sunscreen and to use your sunscreen appropriately.

As we like to say, the best warranty to any efforts to improve your skin through good skin care and the wide variety of procedures we offer is to make sure you have a good sunscreen ready to go at all times!
Picosure Tattoo Removal
Tattoo regret, tattoo revision, or the pursuit of coverup tattoos are very common scenarios in the general public. Too often, options for tattoo removal were limited to underpowered machines that required up to 10-12 sessions to even begin noticing fading of color. We are proud to be one of only a few centres in North America to carry the Picosure Laser. Our staff dermatologist who is a specialist/specializes in Laser Surgery and Cosmetic Dermatology has extensive experience with medical and cosmetic application of lasers that are conventionally used for tattoos. The PicoSure is a very unique device and is amongst the fastest lasers commercially available on earth.
Tattoo regret is bad enough… don’t regret trying to get your tattoo removed by the wrong device.
