Dr. Gail Nield has been practicing dermatology since 1989. In 1990, she opened the Woodbridge Dermatology and Laser Centre, a successful and highly respected clinic that specializes in cosmetic dermatology.
Dr. Nield initially received an undergraduate degree in Nursing from Queen’s University. She worked as a nurse for Health and Welfare in Moose Factory, and as an ICU nurse in St. John’s. It was in her short career as a nurse that she developed her considerable ability to put patients at ease and explain their care to them simply and reassuringly. After she entered medical school at Memorial University, she continued to work part-time as an ICU nurse.
Dr. Nield completed her residency in Dermatology at the University of Toronto. She is a board-certified dermatologist in Canada and the United States. Dr. Nield’s skills as a dermatologist make her uniquely qualified to rejuvenate skin, since most cosmetic surgeons do not actually specialize in skin. She is well versed in a wide range of skilled techniques that are at the forefront of cosmetic dermatology. Her combination of nursing experience and medical knowledge allow her to help patients with a unique blend of warmth, sincerity, and ability.
Continuing medical education is very important to Dr. Nield. She is both a dedicated teacher and an avid student. She has been a lecturer for the University of Toronto’s Department of Medicine since 1989, and was a clinical staff member at Wellesley Hospital’s Department of Dermatology from 1989-94, where she taught students and worked in the out-patient dermatology clinics. Dr. Nield attends many professional meetings and conferences locally and internationally, where she keeps up-to-date on the newest and most innovative techniques in a rapidly developing field.
Dr. Nield drives innovation in her field. She was the first dermatologist in Vaughan to offer leg vein injections, and has expanded her phlebology practice with newer techniques such as foam sclerotherapy and laser for leg veins. She was the first physician in Vaughan to offer laser hair removal, and remains at the forefront of laser technology. She has become one of Canada’s top Cosmetic injectors, and has been acknowledged as an expert in the field. She has also been doing chemical peels for over 15 years, and is constantly updating her knowledge with new techniques for different skin conditions.
Dr. Nield is a leader in mesotherapy and lipotherapy, and was one of the first physicians in Canada to offer ActhydermTM treatments for cellulite, skin tightening, localized fat deposits and skin rejuvenation.
