There are many skin care clinics out there. Why Us ?

We are constantly driven by these principles:


Education is where it all begins; we are true consultants, having had many years of formal training and experience. Between them, Dr. Alanen and CEO Ildiko Juhasz have 25 years of formal training. Each of us has been in the world of dermatology for over twenty years. We share our knowledge with patients, colleagues and trainees.  The clinic has seen over 120,000 patients since opening in September 2008. We have removed over 20,000 skin cancers (via Mohs’ micrographic surgery and conventional techniques). We have treated over 25,000 cosmetic patients.


At, we never make unrealistic promises about what to expect. We are every transparent about results, pricing and treatment plan.
Ildiko is guided by the mindset of “never over-promise or under-deliver”. She believes in “before and after” pictures. Her results speak for themselves. She proves this with cutting edge skin imaging and skin analysis technology. Dr Alanen shares this belief system – be it when removing a skin cancer, doing an online visit and seeing cases under the microscope.


We are very, very type A. In everything that we do – from the minute we see your referral, your email, your phone call to your actual visit and everything that follows, we strive to always be the best. If we are late, we apologize; if you are not happy, we listen to you and we strive to always improve our service.

You may see an aura of calm or humor when you are in the clinic, but rest assured, we conduct ourselves the notion that “….the difference between Ordinary and Extraordinary is that little Extra”. We do this every single day. And we play great music…..


We are here for you: from start to finish, and beyond. This means that if you have had a procedure done, we are reachable. We give our cell phone numbers out and we actually answer – 24 / 7 / 365.

We invite patients to book a follow up appointment to make sure the satisfaction is there .

Ownership and Commitment

If you are not satisfied with your outcome, we want you to come back and chat with us. It is a much better format than an online review.

We commit myself 100% to all of our patients and clients, we care about them genuinely and are always there to help!

Being the best

This is a result of continuous learning (regularly attending the best conferences), using the best technologies available, delivering the most advanced techniques and giving the utmost to our clients and patients.  As a result of the drive to be the best, consider:

  • we are true leaders in the field on a national scale as evidenced by development of professional grade skin care (Revoderm : Revolution in Dermatology).
  • we are regularly called upon for expert second opinions
  • we are a major referral centre for the entire range of dermatology conditions: everything from general dermatology to skin cancer to cosmetic medicine
  • we have been doing telemedicine for over ten years
  • We launched the first and only cross-country telemedicine service for acne:


We have been very lucky in life and we are mindful of this every day. We have encountered some truly remarkable people (staff, patients, clients) over the years have given back in many ways including charitable donations to Annual support for the MS Walk, Regular financial support for The Calgary Humane Society, The Four Feet Companion Foundation, Financial support for Olympic Athletes. Ildikó and Ken are avid cyclists and we recently organized a clinic team for the Ride to Conquer Cancer (with all funds donated to skin cancer research).

Most Dermatology clinics “see you, fix you and then dismiss you”; we don’t. Because skin disorders are common. Toward that end, Dr. Alanen commonly quotes Don Henley from Hotel California: You can check any time you like, but you can never leave”.

Thanks everyone. See you soon.
