Acne and Acne Scars

This condition occurs in mature skin, and is felt to have the potential to turn into skin cancer if left untreated. Treatments include topical creams, cryotheraphy (liquid nitrogen), and biopsy if necessary. Arrangements will be made with a plastic surgeon or dermatologist if the lesion is found to be cancerous.
Compression Medical Stockings
Do you have aching, tired legs at the ned of the day? Or varicose veins? Do you need to travel frequently on airplanes, or otherwise sit regularly for long periods?
Our prescription stockings by Bauerfeind are not only effective, but come in esthetically pleasing colours, and patterns. They help compress the lower leg, to prevent the symptoms of varicose veins, and help prevent more from forming.
Rosacea and Red Skin
Rosacea - sometimes called "adult acne" - is a chronic inflammatory skin condition characterized by red skin, broken blood vessels and small red bumps or pimples. It affects both men and women and occurs in about 10% of the population, commonly presenting in people between 30 to 50 years old. The condition can reduce self-esteem and increase self-consciousness.
Many factors contribute to rosacea, including genetics and age, and it may be triggered by heat, caffeine, and alcohol. There are different stages of rosacea, ranging from transient flushing to permanently dilated capillaries and acne.
Clarite is one of the few clinics to offer a comprehensive and effective range of treatment options including a customized blend of appropriate cosmeceuticals, prescriptions, and skin treatments including lasers. A consultation with Dr. Rice will determine which treatment will best suit you. She'll also discuss your on-going skin care with guidance on skin cleansers, moisturizers and make-up, each of which must be formulated so as not to disrupt the natural skin barrier.
If you have excessive underarm sweating that is not controlled with antipersperants, this treament, using Botox Medical®, may be an option.
