With the promise of a vaccine on the horizon, 2021 is looking hopeful. However, the COVID numbers in Canada, and especially in Ontario in the last few months have continued to rise to the point where a lockdown was imminent.
So, here we are. Toronto Dermatology Centre (TDC) has been following the guidelines as set out by the government throughout every twist and turn of this pandemic. Like other businesses, we have added and subtracted things from our business to be able to adhere safely and yet still remain effective.
We are fortunate that due to our physician expert Dermatologists being essential, our doors are able to still remain open, unlike many medispas and some plastic surgery clinics. While the medical clinic is still fully able to see patients, but without overcrowding the waiting area (helps that we have over 13, 000 square feet and over 20 clinic rooms) and with proper screening upon entering the clinic, this most recent restriction has affected the cosmetics clinic far more.
Our cosmetic clinic is currently able to do phone consults and are in the clinic every day to answer questions and help patients with their products and answer questions about services. However, at least until February 10th, we are not able to perform most services or do in-office consults. There are a few services that are considered medical that are still on our roster for the time being. If you are not sure if your treatment qualifies, please don’t hesitate to call and find out. The Cosmetic Clinic can be reached at extension 2 when you call.
Our online boutique is always the easiest way for you to order or reorder your medical-grade home care. If you are new to our online boutique, or if you are interested in what’s new, please call the clinic and we will walk you through how to sign up, how to order and of course help you choose the best products for your skin.
If you have been booked into the Cosmetic Clinic for a service, you will receive a call or email to reschedule prior to your appointment at this time. Right now we are rebooking patients starting February 10th, restrictions pending. If you have not received a call or email, your treatment may be considered medical and we will be able to proceed on the day selected. If in doubt, again, please call us at 416-633-0001 x2, Monday-Friday from 8-5pm.
Keep safe. Let’s work together to get this COVID pandemic under control, and we hope to see you all as soon as possible!!
