Our goal for each and every one of our patients is to be confident and comfortable in their skin.
Our board-certified dermatologists use state-of-the-art technology grounded in the latest research to diagnose
and treat a broad spectrum of conditions affecting the skin, hair and nails, including:
Acne and Acne Scars
Acne is a common skin problem involving the pilosebaceous unit, mostly affecting teenagers and middle-aged individuals. The SKiN Centre for Dermatology offers various comprehensive procedures, prescription and medical skincare products to treat moderate to severe acne for all ages.
Eczema is a chronic inflammatory skin condition. It can present as red, dry, scaly, and very itchy patches which can affect sleep and quality of life. Symptoms can range from mild to severe. Treatment is geared toward restoring the skin barrier and reducing symptoms by controlling inflammation.
Common fungal and yeast infections (athlete’s foot, ringworm, jock itch, and/or fungal nail infection) can present anywhere on the body. Diagnosis can be confirmed with simple testing, and proper treatment is recommended based on an accurate assessment by qualified practitioners.
A mole (nevus) is a small growth made up of a collection of pigment cells. They can range in colour from skin coloured to dark brown or black and it can be hard to distinguish a mole from other pigmented spots (freckles, keratoses). Thankfully the majority of moles are harmless, but moles should be monitored for changes to help detect a cancerous one. Moles that change in colour, size, height, or shape should be evaluated by your doctor.
Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that speeds up the life cycle of skin cells. Cells then build up and form thick, scaly, and red patches that can be itchy and sometimes painful. It is a chronic disease that can range from mild to severe, but can be managed with many new treatment options available.
Persistent flushing, red bumps, and “broken” blood vessels on the face are among the main features of rosacea. There are a number of topical rosacea medications available, but not all features of rosacea can be treated with medication. You can reduce the stubborn red spots with laser and light-based treatments and sometimes oral medication can be helpful.
There are many different types of skin cancer, which can present in many ways. The best proactive approach is good sun protection, regular monitoring, and check-ups of your skin. Watch out for new or changing lesions, or a sore that won’t heal. If you have a spot that is concerning you, it’s good to have it checked out by your doctor.
Skin tags are small, fleshy pieces of skin that stick out on a thin stalk. They most often appear on the neck, armpits, upper trunk, and body folds. They are harmless but can be annoying if they catch on clothing or jewelry. There are options for removal.
Warts are common, benign, skin lesions caused by human papillomavirus infection (HPV). They can appear anywhere on the body in a variety of forms, such as common warts on hands or extremities, plantar warts on the bottoms of the feet, and genital warts in the genital area. Multiple treatment options are available but sometimes the immune system will clear the infection without treatment.
