Cryotherapy

We won’t argue soaking up some sun feels amazing – there’s nothing like warm rays on bare skin. Sadly, those rays take their toll on your skin, leading to sun damage. The sun radiates UVA, UVB and infrared energy, all of which cause mutations to our skin’s composition, leading to visible signs aging, pigmentation and, in some instances, skin cancers. With a careful eye and the proper precautions, we can help identify and remove pre-cancerous spots.

How it works

What we do

When it comes to actinic keratoses (AKs), or pre-cancerous lesions, we offer laser treatments and cryotherapy. Cryotherapy treats AKs by submersing them in liquid nitrogen; this cold or freezing therapy targets the mutated skin cells of AKs, triggering the body to slough them off. Beneath, new, healthy skin cells generate and you’ve prevented a pre-cancerous lesion from developing into skin cancer down the road. For ongoing skin cancer prevention, we always recommend a strict daily sun protection regimen.

Clinic Closures

Dear PS Family,

After much consideration, and in an effort to better protect our team and patients as well as helping to flatten the curve, we’ve decided to temporarily close both our clinics. We currently plan on re-opening on Monday, April 13th, but will continue to monitor the evolution of the situation daily.

In the next days, we will be contacting any patient booked with an appointment to reschedule and offer alternatives. Our physicians will be adding more days in the upcoming months to ensure proper continuity of care.

In the meantime, we invite you to stay connected with us through social media for updates on how to stay healthy and uplifted.

Keep looking after yourself and your skincare needs with our online store. We encourage you to stay home to shop – use the code STAYSAFE for a 15% discount! Orders will be shipped out once a week, so bear with us as there may be an extended shipping and handling timeline.

Note that we will continue to be attending to voicemails, emails, and incoming texts. We appreciate your understanding as it may take us longer than usual to get back to you during this time.

Please stay safe, stay home and take this time to enjoy meaningful connection with your loved ones.
—Dr. McGillivray and the #PSFamily
