Did you know that to be seen by one of our dermatologists for any medical skin issue (e.g. moles, skin cancers, acne, rosacea, psoriasis etc), you simply require a referral be faxed over to our clinic from either your family doctor, pediatrician, walk-in clinic doctor, or any other medical doctor or nurse practitioner.

If your skin concern is cosmetic (e.g. Botox, fillers, lasers, peels, microdermabrasion, fat or wrinkle reduction etc), then simply call our clinic at 416-633-0001 ext. 2 to book an appointment without requiring a referral.

As we trudge our way through the winter climate waiting for the first signs of spring, we are noticing our hair is a little more brittle, our nails aren’t as pliable and our skin feels chapped, crepey or tight and rough. The heat that is forced out through vents in our cars, at home and at work are sucking the humidity out of our skin and we can see the results visibly.

So what can we do? It is imperative to keep the skin hydrated throughout the year as well as protect it with a proper sunscreen. Yes, it is true!! There is sun even in the winter. Don’t be fooled by the clouds, that sun is still plenty strong enough to create havoc on your skin. In fact, during the winter the sun is not only affecting us from above, but it can reflect upwards off the snow or ice as well.

Acne appeared sporadically at first when Sophia Steinberg was in the eighth grade, but within two years she said her face, chest and back were covered with embarrassing lesions of cystic acne.

“I was very self-conscious, deeply insecure and anxious,” Sophia, a Brooklyn high school student, told me. “I would wake up ashamed for my face. I felt so unattractive all the time. I had to use so much makeup and wear concealing clothing. I avoided doing presentations in front of the class. Acne kept me from feeling confident and developing my personal style.”

An old acne drug may hold the key to developing a new, safer treatment, a study suggests.

Isotretinoin (Myorisan, formerly branded as Accutane), is a form of vitamin A, and has been prescribed for acne for decades. It works by reducing oil in the skin, thus helping prevent acne.
