List of concerns

Acne

Acne is a chronic inflammatory skin condition, common among teenagers, but can affect all ages. Overproduction of sebum and build up of dead skin cells leads to clogged pores, from blackhead and whiteheads, to cystic nodular acne. This can lead to stress, anxiety, low self esteem and general insecurities. With a combination of physician directed topical and treatments, there are options for all concerns and budgets. Acne is generally a progressive disease, so controlling it early will prevent pigmentation and scarring down the road. 

Acne Scars

Acne scars are permanent textural changes and indentations that occur on the skin as the result of acne. Ice pick, rolling and boxcar scars are all examples of long term scarring that can negatively affect self esteem and confidence.

Actinic Kertosis

Actinic keratoses are scaly rough patches on the top layer of the skin that develop from years of sun exposure, often on exposed areas such as the face, head, and torso. With time they may become hard with a wart-like surface. Actinic keratoses can potentially lead to cancer.

Aging / Anti-Aging

Although aging is inevitable and happens to all of us, the correct combinations of topicals and in office procedures with the correct techniques ensure you age gracefully. The goal is to slow and reverse the signs of aging, helping you look like the best version of yourself, at every age.

Angiomas

An angioma is a benign growth of small blood vessels. Most common are spider angiomas and cherry angiomas. The cause of most types of angiomas are unknown, but likely related to aging and sun exposure.

Body And Facial Contouring

Non-surgical body and facial contouring and fat reduction permanently reduce and remove stubborn pockets of fat to contour and shape different areas of the body. These treatments work best on stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise, and it is not a weight loss solution. These minimally invasive treatments have little to no downtime and can easily be fit into your busy lifestyle.

Cosmetic Removal

Cosmetic removals are performed to improve overall cosmetic appearance by reshaping or adjusting anatomy to make it more visually appealing. These are not considered medically necessary but often greatly improve patient confidence and self esteem.

Available Treatments

Double Chin

Often caused by genetics, many find that they have an increased number of fat cells under their chin (also known as the submental), causing a “double chin” effect that isn’t proportional to the rest of the body. Loose skin can also enhance the appearance of a double chin, causing insecurities in many.

Dry Skin

Dull and dry skin can happen to everyone, typically as the seasons change into winter most people notice their skin is visibly dehydrated and lacking glow. Some are also just prone to drier skin than others due to genetics. A combination of in office treatments and home care will leave you with hydrated and glowing skin that will have your skin looking and feeling its best.

Enlarged Pores

Over time, our pores stretch to accommodate for oil production, and once they have stretched, they don’t have the ability to “shrink” again. Ensuring that the pores are clear of congestion and debris will help to reduce their appearance, as well as stimulating collagen between them to make them appear smaller on the surface.

Excessive Sweating

Excessive sweating can be an embarrassing problem. There are options to give long term relief so you can go back to wearing colored t-shirts and shaking hands without fear of excessive sweat.

Gummy Smile

A gummy smile is when your smile shows more of your gum line than you’d prefer. It can be caused by the way your teeth grow in, or the length of your upper lip.

Available Treatments

HASTI (leg Heaviness, Aching, Swelling, Throbbing, Itching)

Varicose Veins can often lead to uncomfortable symptoms often referred to as HASTI. Those with bulging varicose veins may experience a combination of these symptoms, all of them together, or sometimes none at all. Good treatment of vascular abnormalities should always include a vein scan to ensure proper treatment to reduce recurrence.

Available Treatments

Jaw Pain/TMJ

Clenching, grinding and forceful chewing can lead to damage and inflammation of both the teeth and jaw. This can be due to genetics, arthritis, jaw injury or even stress.

Available Treatments

Laxity and Sagging Skin

Over time, factors such as aging, genetics, sun exposure, stress, weight fluctuations and smoking reduces fibroblast function, leading to a decrease in collagen and elastin. Anchoring fibrils in the Dermal Epidermal Junction also weaken over time, leading to excessive laxity, which first signs are often seen around the jowl area.

Available Treatments

Migraines

A migraine is usually a moderate to severe headache felt as a throbbing or pulsating pain on one side of the head. Many people also have symptoms such as light and sound sensitivity and nausea. Migraines are a very common condition, affecting about 1 in every 5 women and 1 in every 15 men.

Mole Checks

A visual assessment of the skin by a physician can aid in diagnosing suspicious lesions on the skin. Full body mole checks are a vital part of ensuring cancers are diagnosed early to reduce the need for extensive removals and surgeries.

Available Treatments

Nail Fungus

Nail fungus, also known as onychomycosis is a common condition that begins as a white or yellow spot under the tip of your fingernail or toenail. As the fungal infection goes deeper, nail fungus may cause your nail to discolor, thicken and crumble at the edge. It can affect several nails.

Available Treatments

Neck Lines

Neck lines and wrinkles are a normal part of aging. Partly caused by loss of elasticity and sun exposure, you may also notice premature neck lines and wrinkles as a result of repeatedly looking down at your phone or computer, smoking, or not using sunscreen.

Available Treatments

Permanent Contraception

After abstinence, vasectomies are considered the most effective forms of birth control due to the long term success rate of over 99%. The testicles produce sperm that travel through a tube called the vas deferens. The vas deferens or “vas” continues to travel through the prostate before joining with the vas on the other side to become the urethra, which exits through the penis. The goal in a vasectomy is to block both vas, therefore allowing you to ejaculate semen with no sperm. With no sperm, you cannot make your partner pregnant.

Available Treatments

Pigmentation

Unwanted pigmentation from sun exposure, hormonal fluctuations (melasma), old acne spots and other environmental factors can be extremely stubborn and frustrating. A variety of topical and in office treatments are available to lighten and blend pigmentation, giving an overall brighter and healthier complexion.

Rosacea and Redness

Rosacea is a common, inflammatory disease that usually causes a persistent background redness in the central part of the face. Acne-like breakouts and vessel formations are also common symptoms of rosacea.  Genetics play a large part in rosacea, as well as sun exposure. Many patients are embarrassed by the constant flushed background which may lead to confidence and self esteem issues. There is no cure for Rosacea, but with adequate treatments and topicals can fully manage the symptoms. Leaving it untreated can also lead to enlarged pores, permanent redness and rhinophyma.

Available Treatments

Seborreheic Keratosis

Seborrheic keratosis is a benign growth on the skin, ranging in color from white to brown or even black raised areas. They can have a wart-like surface and often have a waxy appearance. These are very common in people older than age 50, though younger adults can get them as well.

Skin Tags

Skin tags are small, soft, skin-coloured growths on your skin. They can vary in colour and size, from a few millimetres up to 5cm wide. Skin tags are usually found on the neck, armpits, around the groin, or under the breasts. They can also grow on the eyelids or under and between the folds of the buttocks.

Available Treatments

Skin Texture

Excess buildup of dead skin cells, prominent pores from overproduction of oil, chronic sun exposure, congestion, dehydration and scaring can also contribute to increased uneven skin texture. A combination of these may be contributing to skin texture and a combination of at home and in office treatments often lead to the best result.

Stubborn Fat

Once we hit our mid 20s, the number of fat cells in our body stops increasing and we maintain relatively the same amount throughout the rest of adulthood. The distribution of these fat cells are primarily genetic, and cannot be changed. Some people are genetically predisposed to have a high number of fat cells in specific areas of the body such as under the chin, arms, abdomen or thighs. For these individuals, no amount of diet or exercise will get rid of those areas of fat.

Available Treatments

Unwanted Hair

Removing unwanted hair is a personal choice with a variety of ways this can be done, from waxing, tweezing, shaving to lasers. Permanent hair reduction is a long term-cost effective way that leads to smoother and more confident skin.

Available Treatments

Veins

Veins and vascular formations can be a prominent and noticeable cause for aesthetic concern for many patients. These may appear all over the body from the face to the legs. Often considered just a cosmetic desire, some vascular formations can be caused from underlying medical conditions and should be treated to reduce future health risks. At Lezara we specialize in vascular treatments such as bulging varicose veins, spider veins, breast and hand veins, facial vascularities, skin discoloration and even periorbital veins using a combination therapy to ensure the best and longest lasting result.

Warts

Common warts are small, grainy skin growths that occur most often on your fingers, hands and bottoms of the feet. Rough to the touch, common warts also often feature a pattern of tiny black dots, which are small, clotted blood vessels. Common warts are caused by a virus and are transmitted by touch.

Available Treatments

Wrinkles and Fine Lines

Wrinkles and fine lines are a natural part of the aging process, accelerated by skin dehydration, UV exposure and smoking. Genetics and environment play a large part in the rate of collagen and elastin loss, and while they are a natural part of aging, prevention and slowing the formation is key in preventing excessive and early signs of aging.
