Winter skin essentials.

Dear ,

Welcome back to the Thornhill Dermatology Centre newsletter! February is about delicate skin. Dehydration and extreme winter conditions can take a toll on rosacea-prone, fragile complexions. Appropriate care and attention can transform the qualities and health of sensitive skin. Help us spread this education ~ share our newsletter with a friend today!

Ontario’s cold, dry winter months hardly seem conducive to much more than hockey, flus and hot cocoa but rosy, sensitive cheeks may also sound familiar. According to the Canadian Dermatology Association, rosacea is a persistent skin condition affecting more than two million Canadians.

Often misdiagnosed as adult acne, rosacea will usually present itself as tender, rosy cheeks with bumps or pimple-type spots, which may evolve into defined facial vessels, a bulbous nose and eye irritation if not controlled properly. More than three quarters of rosacea patients report low self-esteem - which lends importance to proper identification and treatment because of its affects on both mental and emotional well-being.

The first thing to do when
questioning your skin’s health is to
seek out a professional diagnosis.

Your family doctor can refer you to one of our dermatologists to ensure your rosy cheeks or acne-type bumps are identified and treated effectively. Follow your prescribed treatment plan as directed by your dermatologist and attend regular follow-up consultations to evaluate your progress.

Most importantly, identify your triggers and learn about the treatment options available to help control rosacea.

Celebrate your neck.

If you’re like most of us, you’ve been forgetting to protect and treat the delicate skin on your neck and chest. Likely, you’re finding it appears older and more damaged than the skin on your face.

Advancements in skincare have brought about great opportunities for restoring the health and appearance of your neck and chest.

In the clinic: SilkPeel® microdermabrasion and expert BOTOX COSMETIC® treatments, when paired together, can repair skin damage to the neck and soften lines and wrinkles - results speak for themselves!

At home: Try the  NEW Perfecting Neck & Décolleté cream by PCA SKIN®. This revolutionary product may give the delicate skin of your neck the lift and tone you've been looking for in as little one to five weeks!
