Ildikó Juhasz

CEO of Clinic and Director of Cosmetic Medicine


From the clinic’s inception in 2008, Dr. Alanen has devoted his clinical dermatology practice to skin cancer surgery and prevention as well as medical dermatology. He has been partners from the beginning with the incomparable Ildikó Juhasz.  Dr. Alanen states that:

“….In my thirty years in medicine, I have never met anyone like Ildikó. She is truly passionate about dermatology. She is kind, funny, incredibly intelligent, absolutely full of life and  she is remarkably skilled. So many people in health care have book smarts but she is uniquely effective as a clinician, since she knows how to combine therapies, be it laser, injectables, cosmeceuticals or medical therapies. She knows how to push the envelope to get the best results. You just can’t read these things in a book; you have this gift, or you don’t. She has put in what Malcolm Gladwell has memorably called the mandatory 10,000 hours for greatness”.

Ildikó is CEO of the clinic and Director of Cosmetic Medicine at Derm.ca. So many of her clients have had many, many years of sun exposure in childhood years and Ildikó’s skills with lasers, cosmeceuticals and injectables reverse this. But that is only part of the story. She has an excellent “eye” for detecting potentially worrisome spots on her clients (remember – almost every issue that is deemed “cosmetic” or “anti-aging” comes from sunshine, just like skin cancer). On practically every day, she will call Dr. Alanen into her room to double check a potentially worrisome lesion; she regularly finds skin cancers at an early stage. You just don’t get that at a MediSpa…… Not surprisingly, she has developed a very large and loyal client base.

Ildikó trained as a nurse in Europe before coming to Canada twenty years ago and she is an active member of the Dermatology Nurses’ Association as well as the American Society of Laser Medicine and Surgery. Also, Ildikó regularly attends the Aesthetic & Anti-aging Medicine World Congress in Europe, the leading anti-aging conference of the world. She has used her extensive laser experience and skincare knowledge and this has resulted in Revoderm – the ultimate luxury skin care line.

Ildikó sees her own cosmetic clients and patients (but, happily, you don’t need a referral to see her although many physicians do indeed refer to her).  She creates individualized treatment plans for everyone and does detailed before and after pictures. Her favourite procedures are the non-surgical face lift, deep non-surgical wrinkle treatments (e.g. resurfacing laser, platelet rich plasma, acne scar therapies and MiraDry for disabling excessive sweating) and “anything where I can use my nursing background. Also, I want to be able to show results after just one treatment”. She specializes in advanced cosmetic procedures including PRP, stem cell treatments, facial rejuvenation, hair restoration, advanced acne treatments, medical resurfacing, and the Profound non-surgical Facelift.

“What I enjoy the most about non-surgical procedures is that you can see results immediately if you know what you’re doing.  There is an art to it and I enjoy the artistic element more than anything !”
