Experience the Benefits of a Clinical Skin Care Regimen
Healthy skin contributes to a vibrant, youthful, and attractive appearance. The number of skin care products and treatments available can be intimidating, but patients at The Landings Surgical Centre have access to the best options and the most up-to-date information. The clinical skin care expert at our Halifax practice helps people from Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and the surrounding areas make the right choices for lasting health and beauty.
Conditions We Treat
Our approach to skin care usually involves both in-office treatments and take-home products for better results.
- Pre- and post-surgical skin care: In many cases, cosmetic surgery can produce better results when the skin is healthier. In addition, surgery sometimes stresses the skin, requiring treatment. Patients who undergo face lift, brow lift, eyelid surgery, liposuction, or body contouring can all benefit from skin care treatments.
- Anti-aging treatments: With age, the skin sometimes loses elasticity and tone. Hydration and nutrients can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and improve the skin's health, and may be particularly effective in combination with BOTOX® Cosmetic or a dermal filler.
- Acne treatments: Acne can be frustrating and embarrassing, but there are many effective in-office treatments and take-home products that can help control acne. We offer treatments for acne of all severities.
- Rosacea: An appropriate skin care regimen can help control the redness, irritation, and blemishes associated with rosacea. A variety of effective in-office treatments, such as dermabrasion, are available.
- Scar improvement: Chemical peels and other skin care treatments can reduce the appearance of scars caused by acne and other conditions in order to improve complexion. These skin care treatments can either be performed in place of or in addition to surgical scar revision.
- Pigmentation: Skin pigmentation can be affected by exposure to sun and other environmental factors, or by hormone imbalance. With treatment, the skin's pigment can be made smoother and more even.
- Dull, fatigued skin: Environmental factors and stress can take its toll on the skin over time. If your skin is looking dull or fatigued, treatment can bring out a healthy glow to improve appearance and self-confidence.
The Benefits of Clinical Skin Care
Our skin care expert helps people rejuvenate their skin for a more vibrant appearance. Over time, a good clinical skin care regimen can train the skin to function differently. Long-term treatment can address what were chronic problems, keeping the skin healthier with more uniform pigmentation, healthy natural oil production, fewer dead skin cells, and new production of collagen fibers to smooth away wrinkles. Skin conditions such as acne and rosacea will fade to reveal the healthy beauty underneath.
