Best Dermatologist for Acne and Scars - Toronto, ON

Dr. Barankin is a very nice and smart and caring physician. He really cares about his patients and will do everything humanly possible to get you the best results. After clearing up my acne, he did a variety of scar treatments including subcision and chemical peels, and 1 profractional laser, as well as some dermaroller which cleared up many of my blemishes and scars which has given me a newfound confidence. I know from my research and my GP that Dr. Barankin is a highly regarded dermatologist in canada and abroad.

Best Dermatologist for Fillers and Botox and More - Toronto, ON

Dr. Barankin is a meticulous dermatologist and very honest and caring. Along with Botox and Juvederm , he has removed many moles and skin tags for me, and totally cleared my Rosacea. He's always learning and attends and speaks at countless conferences. I told my GP about him, and she said that she only refers patients to him because of the great feedback she always gets.

Best Cosmetic Doctor in Toronto

Dr. Barankin is a very knowledgeable dermatologist who came highly recommended based on my internet research along with asking my doctor (who incidentally had heard great things about him too), as well as my girlfriend who I just found out sees him and swears by him. Dr. Barankin does all his own Botox and filler injections which was critical for me ; as I've heard and learned, unfortunately many clinics or medispas delegate injections to poorly or undertrained nurses or other staff. Dr. Barankin is also incredibly gentle which was huge for me since I'm quite a wimp. I had no bruising, a bit of swelling for about 36hrs, and my frown lines and laugh lines are way reduced and looking both good and natural. I'll definitely be going back to him and this great clinic.

Best Acne Doctor in Toronto - Toronto, ON

Dr. Barankin is both kind and caring, and the "go to" dermatologist according to my GP who always recommends him. He takes his time, explains things quite clearly, and you always leave feeling that he's got your back. I like everything about him as well as the incredible office he works in.

Lips and Cheeks Nicely Filled by Great Doctor - Toronto, ON

Dr. Barankin was very nice and professional, and I like his conservative approach so that you only get natural looking results. There was practically no pain, and only a tiny bit of bruising and swelling. I would definitely come back and recommend him to anyone looking for a great cosmetic dermatologist. I also like that he does all his own injections, that way you know you're getting the best results possible.

Best Dermatologist for Cosmetic Work - Toronto, ON

Dr. Barankin is an amazing guy and doctor. I've read and heard many terrific things about him which all came to be true. He is very honest and reasonable, his prices are very fair, and he simply does terrific work with minimal discomfort and downtime. I'll definitely return to him and have already recommended him to two friends who will soon have their treatments with him as they were similarly impressed after meeting him.

Superb for Botox and Restylane - Toronto, ON

Dr. Barankin is a really kind soul, and incredibly gifted with his hands. He is obviously really smart, but is also quite humble in the way he speaks to you. He never makes you feel dumb, regardless of how many questions you have. He is patient, and not pushy, and surprisingly I never really have any pain or bruising when he treats me. I think he's one of the best cosmetic dermatologists out there and highly recommend him. He's also didn't hesitate to help me out with several medical skin issues even though I was there for cosmetic stuff.

Best Dermatologist for Acne, Acne Scars, and Cosmetic Treatments - Toronto, ON

Dr. Barankin is very bright, handsome ;), and clearly explains everything and includes you in the decision making which I really liked. He's not pushy, he's very very honest, and tries to keep your costs down. I was really impressed in that treatments were far more comfortable than I imagined. This is one doctor who truly cares about his craft, and you'll quickly see that. I highly recommend him without reservation for any and all skin issues.

Best Dermatologist for Botox and Juvederm - Toronto, ON

Dr. Barankin is a very kind and talented dermatologist, explaining everything he does and not pushing any treatments. He only cares about his patients and making sure they are happy. His technique is amazing since there is basically no pain, and the results look natural right away and seem to last a very long time. i know that he is very respected internationally, as his name has been mentioned by a number of physicians and friends of mine. its definitely worth the trip to visit this talented doctor.

Liver & Age Spots: Diagnosis and Treatment

Age spots or liver spots are flat, brown areas given the medical term "lentigo" or "lentigines." In fact, liver spots have nothing to do with the liver (though they are the same colour as the liver, hence the name) - they are caused by the sun as well as the aging process, and usually appear on the face, back of the hands, upper back and shoulders. Age spots or liver spots are generally harmless, especially if they are stable and are not changing in size or colour. They may look...

Acne: Diagnosis & Treatment

Acne is a common skin condition characterized by plugged pores (blackheads and whiteheads), inflamed pimples (pustules), and deeper lumps (nodules). Acne occurs on the face, as well as the chest, back, and upper arms. Although most teenagers get some form of acne, adults can also develop acne. Often, acne clears up after several years, even without treatment. Acne can be disfiguring and upsetting to the patient. Untreated acne can leave permanent scars. To avoid acne scarring, acne treatment...

Seborrheic keratoses: Diagnosis and Treatment

Seborrheic Keratoses are brown or black raised, often crusted spots or wart-like growths. They appear almost as if they are stuck on the skin surface. There may be just one seborrheic keratosis or many of these "Granny warts" which occur in clusters. Seborrheic Keratoses are not cancerous (they are benign) and are not contagious. They may be unsightly, and many patients request their removal. A proper diagnosis is important, as melanoma skin cancer or pigmented basal cell cancer can...

Cherry Angiomas: Diagnosis and Treatment

Cherry Angiomas (also called "Campbell de Morgan spots") are harmless, small, red (cherry red) raised bumps created by dilated blood vessels. Occasionally the vessels inside can clot and turn a dark purple or almost black which can look quite worrisome (like a melanoma). Cherry angiomas occur in more than 85 percent of middle-aged and elderly people, especially those people who are fair skin, and most commonly appear on the trunk. Electrocautery, laser surgery, or other surgical...
