Dear patient,

Welcome back to the Thornhill Dermatology Centre newsletter! March break is fast approaching and everyone in the family is itching for a holiday. Wherever you’ll be escaping to this year, protect your skin with this expert advice from our dermatologists. Help us spread skin health education ~ share your newsletter with a friend today!

Many of us are inspired to visit the tanning salon prior to a beach vacation. We crave the warmth and base tan however, here are a few of the key reasons indoor tanning is quickly falling out of style:

  • Just 10 indoor tanning sessions can double your risk for melanoma.
  • Using tanning beds before the age of 35 increases your risk of developing skin cancer by 75 per cent.
  • 1 of every 5 tanning beds is improperly cleaned.
  • 90 per cent of skin aging is a result of UV radiation.

Don’t let the vitamin D argument fool you - tanning beds are classified carcinogens! Diet and supplements are safer, more effective and more cost effective solutions for ensuring adequate vitamin D.

Enjoy a sunny holiday without compromising your health. Watch this video to learn how to protect your skin from the sun and stop by before your spring break vacation to stock up on our top recommended sun protection products.

To a parent, nothing beats the sight of their happy, confident teen - all smiles and giggles. Research shows that having acne through impressionable teenage years can have a significant, long-term impact on self-esteem and sociability.

Contrary to popular belief, scientific research has yet to find a link between diet and acne. Greasy food isn’t the cause; dairy isn’t exacerbating the condition; and cleansing too often has been shown to make the condition worse.

So, when should your teen see a dermatologist for acne? The answer is now.

Early intervention can prevent acne from worsening and minimize the risk for scarring. A custom combination of prescribed therapies, optional in-office treatments and homecare can effectively manage active acne and help your teen focus on the things that really matter.

Real solutions for teen acne.

Today’s treatment options can enhance or offer alternatives to prescription therapies. Customized chemical peels, SilkPeelĀ® microdermabrasion and specialized skincare products effectively control active acne and help prevent subsequent scarring.
