Hamilton Cosmetic Dermatology now has the first Clinical Acne Laser Device in Canada.

We are very exciting as there have not been any innovations in effective acne treatment since Accutane (isotretinoin) was introduced in 1982, 40 years ago. AviClear is the first non-pharmacological acne treatment recently approved in the US and Canada that rivals or exceeds the efficacy of Accutane, but without the baggage of systemic side effects of Accutane.

Acne is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that occurs when pores get blocked with oil, bacteria or dead skin. This causes blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, or deep lumps to form. Acne typically appears on the face, back, shoulders, neck, chest and upper arms. Rather than try to hide it, our acne-fighting treatments can help you manage and minimize your blemishes. This can be especially important for teens.

Oil glands in the skin are affected by hormones, which is why acne is so common during puberty. But acne is not only a young person’s skin issue. Many adults suffer from acne into their adulthood or carry permanent scars from their youth.

Regardless of your age, our experts will recommend the right acne-fighting treatments for your complexion and skin type.

These acne-fighting treatment options are available at Hamilton Cosmetic Dermatology:

AviClear Laser

AviClear Laser is the only FDA cleared energy device for the treatment of mild to moderate to severe acne. The treatment regimen consists of three thirty minute sessions, administered one month apart, and achieves clear or almost clear skin in the majority of patients. The treatment is non-invasive, well tolerated, and does not require topical anaesthetic. There is no downtime following the procedure.

It’s the first non-pharmacological acne treatment recently approved in the US and Canada that rivals or exceeds the efficacy of Accutane, but without the baggage of systemic side effects of Accutane.

Laser Genesis™

Laser Genesis™ skin therapy is an innovative, technologically advanced acne-fighting treatment that penetrates below the surface of the skin where the acne problem starts.

TheExcel V™ Plus Laser has a dual wavelength that heats the upper dermis while simultaneously cooling the skin. This advanced technology makes it the most comfortable laser treatment on the market.
