5 out of 5 stars UltraShape
Christine performed my Ultrashape. I'm in my late 50's and frequently get pegged at being in my 40's. I'm not shy about saying that's all due to the excellent work of Dr Gidon. I've been seeing her for botox and thermage for the past 5 years and most recently also had some ultrashape treatments and I absolutely believe she is important and critical to keeping me looking great. When I started to feel like I wanted a little bit of help with the lines and sagging that started to appear on my face a few years ago I really did my research before I made the decision on who to trust my appearance to. It was and is important to me that I look like my best self and not like an exaggerated, unrealistic, amped-up version of myself. I've seen that happen to too many women. This is where Dr Gidon is really head and shoulder's above her competitors. Other Doctors and clinics just seemed to be pushing sales and rushing me to sign up for packages, with little regard for me, my financial circumstances or the kind of natural looking results I wanted. Dr Gidon is the antithesis to that stereo-typical cosmetic sales churning machine. She is an extremely qualified, knowledgeable and talented DOCTOR of Cosmetic and Laser Dermatology who is truly passionate about helping people be their best. You can see she genuinely loves what she does and takes pride in getting natural looking results. She is current and up-to-date on all innovations in cosmetic dermatology so I always feel I'm getting the best most informed advice from her and completely trust her judgement and recommendations that help me be my best, without looking like I've had something "done". Most of the people who know me would never guess I'm her client...or that I have had botox or thermage or ultrashape, or that I even need it...and I'm so grateful to Dr Gidon that she does her work so well that no-one will ever guess. I am a fan and strongly recommend her.

5 out of 5 stars Latisse
Dr. Gidon and her assistants answered all of my questions, and had before/after photos (and real people) to show me. As usual, I was very impressed.
5 out of 5 stars Skin Rejuvenation
As with all of my treatments with Dr. Gidon, I was more than satisfied with my Selphyl treatments. Dr. Gidon has the most up to date treatments because she continues to attend dermatology and plastic surgery conferences around the world. She takes time -- I never feel rushed -- and does what can only be described as an "artistic" job.
5 out of 5 stars Skin Rejuvenation
Dr. Gidon is always on the look-out for the newest and most effective skin treatments, so I was thrilled when she began offering Oxygeneo. As usual, my experience at Dr. Gidon's office was terrific. Dr. Gidon knows my skin (face, neck) so well that I am able to trust her suggestions and expertise 100%. I have been seeing Dr. Gidon for eight years, and would not go anywhere else because she is so knowledgeable and up-to-date.
5 out of 5 stars SmartXide
I have been extremely happy with all of the treatments I have received from Dr. Gidon. She always make sure to spend ample time with me when I visit her and answer my questions thoroughly. Dr. Gidon is very experienced with Smartxide Dot Laser (I have only received this treatment from her so far) and I will never go anywhere else. I am already looking forward to receive my 5th treatment next year. :)
Dr. Gidon, as usual, was amazing. She knew exactly which treatment would be most effective for my sudden outbreak. Her assistants are also highly professional and very informed. I am so glad that I turned to Dr. Gidon during this unexplainable and awful pimple outbreak. I definitely recommend Isolaz from Dr. Gidon's office.
5 out of 5 stars Derma Roller
As with all of the treatments I have had with Dr. Gidon, I have been extremely happy. Her office is always on time, and Dr. Gidon spends ample time with every patient. She doesn't rush, and she answers every question (and I have many!). It is clear that she is very experienced. She knows her patients (and their concerns) very well. I will never go anywhere else.
5 out of 5 stars Fraxel Laser
Dr. Gidon is fabulous. She "knows her stuff," which I value as a patient. She is honest and objective. She never rushes, and she answers every single question. Her staff is superb. I would not go anywhere else. I trust her with my face! :)
5 out of 5 stars Fraxel Laser
I have been seeing Dr. Gidon for almost 8 years, and I would never go anywhere else. She is, by far, the most informed and up-to-date (in the latest procedures) cosmetic dermatologist in Toronto, and is well known across Canada for her experience and work. She also attends American cosmetic dermatology and plastic surgery conferences so that she can provide her patients with the best possible advice, and offer the widest variety of procedures and treatments. I highly recommend, and encourage, people (women and men!!) to see Dr. Gidon. You won't be sorry.
