Facial and neck rejuvenation can have a very positive impact on one’s sense of self- esteem and overall health.
Dr. Nield will discuss all of your concerns and review her findings with you. Medical issues will always be discussed first. Being a qualified Board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Nield is able to determine if an annoying mole is benign or if it requires a small biopsy. Most patients who see Dr. Nield for cosmetic treatments have a history of prior sun exposure. Dr. Nield is always on the lookout for atypical skin lesions.
Dr. Nield may evaluate your skin with a Wood’s lamp, to determine the extent of your photo- damaged skin. This can be very useful to help patients realize that the brown sunspots are just the tip of the iceburg! The Wood’s lamp often reveals many more pigmented spots than can be seen with natural light. Treatments with microdermabrasion, Chemical Peels, or photofacials may be suggested to erase these telltale signs of photoaging. Sunscreens and clinically effective skin care products will be recommended.
Dr. Nield will suggest a variety of treatments that can address your concerns. If your main concern is looking tired, Dr. Nield may realize that this is due to dark circles and hollows under your eyes. A combination of treatments would include: a topical eye cream, a soft tissue injectable filler to lessen the hollows and Intense pulsed light treatments to diminish the darkness under the eyes secondary to small veins or pigmentation. Dr. Nield may even suggest Latisse, to enhance the appearance of your eyelashes, completing your overall look.

Belotero is a naturally occurring sugar known as hyaluronic acid. Dr. Nield is able to inject Belotero in such a skilled manner that she will restore your youthfulness, in a very natural fashion. You will look refreshed, less tired and happy. Dr. Nield usually asks her patients to bring in photos form your past, so that she will have an even better idea of how you have aged with time. She will then be able to inject just the right amount of filler, to lift your cheeks, restore your lips and lift your brows, if needed.
By combining Botox®/Xeomin®and Belotero, Dr. Nield is able to achieve a nonsurgical soft lift.

Dr. Nield was the first dermatologist in the GTA to offer the exciting new non- surgical face and neck lift and face and neck tightening procedure. An Ultherapy treatment takes approximately one hour to perform. Dr. Nield has found that by using local anaesthetic, the procedure is very tolerable. Studies have shown that Ultherapy is superior to Thermage. Ultherapy delivers ultrasound into the superficial layers of the skin, tightening and lifting the face and neck. New collagen is also stimulated. The initial results can be seen on the day of treatment, but 3-6 months are required to see the full benefits of this exciting new technology. There is very little downtime following this procedure. You can easily go to work the following day.
Dr. Nield is committed to ensuring you receive the maximum benefits of this treatment; therefore, she performs the Ultherapy herself.
When applied to the skin, medical grade peeling agents lightly exfoliate the damages layers. This encourages newer, healthy skin to grow and it helps to tighten the skin and fade away age spots. A series of peels are necessary to maximize your results. There is very little downtime, and a treatment can be performed in 30 minutes.
This is a time tested, reliable treatment that has very little downtime. A layer of skin is massaged away with micro-crystals. A series of treatments will leave your face and neck feeling refreshed, softer, and more even in texture and tone. Your skin will feel firmer secondary to new collagen growth.
This is also known as Intense Pulsed Light or Photofacials. Through short bursts of intense pulsed light, sunspots or lentigines can be gently removed from the skin. Facial veins will also be targeted. Light treatments may also reduce the appearance of fine facial and neck wrinkles, overtime by stimulating the development of new collagen. A series of treatments are once again recommended by Dr. Nield. Maintenance treatments are also quite useful.
Unwanted facial hair can easily be removed following a series of treatments with our Laser Hair Removal System. Patients must be tan free, and the hair must have some colour to it. Despite claims to the contrary, Laser hair removal should not be performed if you have a tan, and it is ineffective against blond, white or gray hair.
Although rare, some patients undergoing laser hair removal may notice a slight increase in growth of facial hair in an adjacent area.
Prescription Vaniqa may be suggested to further diminish facial hair growth in select individuals.
As we mature, skin growths and pigment spots become more common. Many are benign, harmless lesions such as skin tags, but they are very annoying, especially tags that develop on our neck. These tags can easily be removed using electrodessication by Dr. Nield. The results are far more effective than any over the counter remedies. New ones may form with time, but these can always be treated in the future.
Benign red spots also can develop, not just on your face, neck and scalp, but on the rest of your body. These are hereditary angiomas, consisting of small blood vessels. These can also be easily dessicated by Dr. Nield.
Warty, brown growths may form as well. These are called benign Seborrheic Keratoses.The best treatment is liquid nitrogen, a chemical also used to freeze warts. Dr. Nield is very familiar with these growths and is certainly able to remove a number in one session.
Dr. Nield has an array of treatment options to help you look as young as you feel. Dr. Nield is very easy to talk to and will help you formulate a treatment plan that you are comfortable with and is within your budget.
Dr. Nield is aware that the number of options may seem daunting and will help you understand your choices. First and foremost, Dr. Nield will recommend wearing sunscreen daily, with an SPF of 30 or more. She will then discuss the addition of a few skin care products that would address your individual concerns.
If you have specific facial lines and folds that bother you, Dr. Nield may recommend Botox®/Xeomin® and/or Dermal Fillers. If you have complexion problems, such as rosacea, sunspots or acne, Dr. Nield may suggest treatments such as photofacials.
Whatever your dermatological concern, Dr. Nield will be more than happy to discuss it with you and help you find some useful treatment options.
