Questions For Dr. Pamela Taylor
What led you to choose this location and partnership in Toronto with Dr. Torgerson?
I was born and raised in North York, and Toronto has always represented vibrancy and diversity for me. I have travelled a great deal through Canada and Europe, but the excitement and friendly energy in this city calls me home. I feel that working with Dr. Torgerson keeps me up to date in terms of the most recent technology and techniques in medical aesthetics. Dr. Torgerson’s clinic is busy, fresh, and exciting. Dr. Torgerson and his staff have a positive and modern approach to cosmetic treatments, and I am honoured to be part of the team.
How do you view the medical aesthetics industry in this region of the world, and where do you see it headed?
My impression is that in Canada medical aesthetics is still an emerging industry that brings challenges as well as great potential. Many people here still feel shy when talking about cosmetic facial enhancements. Approximately 90% of the women I ask tell me “My husband doesn’t know that I am here”. Though Botox is one of the most common beauty treatments today, many women tell me that their closest friends don’t know about their beauty secret. In many countries, having Botox and dermal filler treatment is regarded in the same way as a manicure or visit to the hair salon. I think that there is a great deal of positive change to come in terms of people realising the preventative benefits of Botox and dermal fillers and the acceptance that having these treatment is not “cheating,” but a normal part of beauty maintenance.
What is unique about your specialised approach and treatments that you offer?
I pride myself in offering a natural, never “overdone” look. My approach to medical aesthetics has always been that we don’t have to look perfect. I encourage my clients to improve upon what concerns them when they look in the mirror. I endeavour to partner with my clients throughout their treatment: from the start of the consultation, during the procedure, and at follow-ups. It is important to me that clients are satisfied, and I dedicate time and effort to deliver the best possible results. I honestly feel that when we look better, we feel better, and overall our lives are better.
Do you have a favourite treatment?
It is difficult to choose just one top or favourite procedure. Every client is unique, and my favourite thing honestly is just seeing the happy reactions when I have been able to correct or improve an issue that has been troubling someone. If pressed, I would say that non-surgical rhinoplasty is one of my favourite procedures, as the results are so instant and the improvements can be very dramatic.
Your medical education and dermatological training have been extensive. What are some of the certifications and skills that influence your cosmetic practice today?
One of my passions is dermatology, both medical and cosmetic, so I pursued post-graduate training that would allow me to become more skilled in managing conditions of the skin. Since 2004, I have been focused on dermatology within family medicine, and I gradually extended my skills into medical aesthetics in my office. Formal qualifications are surprisingly rare in this industry, but I believe it is necessary to undergo a College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO) recognised and certified training course, which I did in 2014. I completed additional post-graduate training to undertake minor surgery in a primary care setting. I regularly perform procedures, including joint injections, aspirations, incisions, excisions, curettage, cautery, and cryosurgery. I continue to keep current with modern advances in medical aesthetics by attending training courses, conferences, and events.
What would you like patients to know about their treatment experience with you?
I hope to make my patients as comfortable as possible. I have their best interests at heart and always strive to give them the optimum aesthetic outcome. My aim is to work with my clients to achieve their aesthetic goals while making treatments painless and enjoyable.
