Our clinic has been carefully built to meet the highest professional medical standards and equipped with the industry’s latest technology.

Specializing in The Treatment of Rare & Common Skin Conditions

Edmonton Dermatology & Skin Surgery Centre focuses on common skin conditions including acne, rosacea, actinic keratosis, nevi (moles), and skin tags. Dr. Taher specializes in the surgical removal of skin cancers, such as basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and malignant melanoma. 

Common Dermatological Problems

Acne is the most common skin disorder. While prevalent among teens, it can also affect adults. It is caused when the hair follicles become plugged by the skin’s oils, dirt and dead skin cells. Edmonton Dermatology can provide effective skincare solutions for various presentations of acne.

Rosacea causes a persistent redness of the cheeks, nose, chin, forehead and eyes. It may appear as sporadic blushing at first, and become chronic over time. Symptoms vary. In some people it can lead to bumps, pimples, enlarged blood vessels and red eyes. Depending on the type of rosacea you have, treatment options include medical and/or laser therapy.

These are scaly and occasionally red lesions that can be caused by chronic exposure to the sun. It is important that patients seek early treatment, as this condition can develop into squamous cell skin cancer. There are a number of treatment options. Dr. Taher will recommend treatment depending on your clinical presentation.

Skin tags are small, soft, harmless (but annoying) skin growths that often appear on the eyelids, neck, armpits, groin or under the breasts. There are several treatment options available.

If a medical skin condition has resulted in scars or unwanted blemishes, Dr. Taher can advise patients on available cosmetic treatments to improve the appearance of acne, post-operative, and scarring caused by trauma.

Some patients endure the frustration of excessive sweating most commonly from the under arms. Special injections can provide effective control of this problem.

Skin Cancers

This is the most prevalent form of skin cancer. Largely the result of exposure to the sun, it appears as a blemish that refuses to heal – and can have a pearly or shiny texture. The area may be prone to recurrent bleeding. If left untreated it can affect the surrounding tissue, nerves, and blood vessels. Fortunately Basal Cell Carcinoma rarely ever spreads to lymph nodes or other organs.

The second most common form of skin cancer, Squamous Cell Carcinoma is also caused by prolonged exposure to the sun. Affected skin patches can appear dry and scaly. A small number of SCC can be aggressive and can spread to the lymph nodes and other internal organs.

Often appearing as a non-uniform dark patch or a freckle of unusual colour, this is the most serious form of skin cancer. Fortunately, malignant Melanomas can be cured through surgery if diagnosed and treated at an early stage.

What They Say

Linda Parks - Google Review

I started going to this clinic when I had Mohs surgery. Since then I have continued to visit the cosmetic side of the clinic and have been pleased with every visit. From the original consult with the nurse, to being greeted at every visit by the receptionist calling me by name, to the personnel performing the procedures. I would recommend this clinic to anyone looking for a very professional atmosphere and knowledgeable staff that are eager to assist in anyway possible. They recommend procedures and discourage you from other procedures so rest assured they have your best interest at heart.

Dr. Muba Taher is a wonderful doctor. I credit him with saving my life (malignant melanoma) 8 years ago. Since then, I’ve visited him on a regular basis. Over the years, Dr. Taher has become incredibly busy, but remains very compassionate, and always takes the time to explain his findings to me. He is an excellent communicator. He also has a great support staff who make me feel well taken care of (even when my results are not always good). I am blessed to know Dr. Taher – he is one of the best doctors I have ever dealt with (and there have been many).

I had lip filler at Dr. Taher’s clinic a week ago and the results are amazing. The staff was excellent, very professional and kind. Vanessa greeted my at the front and assisted in my consultation and Amanda answering every question and concern I had before and after the procedure. Such a great experience!

Excellent advice and services. i have seen remarkable improvements in my skin’s condition which is quite an achievement in my opinion. I have struggled with skin issues all my adult life; but I have finally found a doctor who has perfect understanding and patience to listen to and treat my skin ailments. His advice is always meaningful and has never failed. Super grateful to him and to his staff particularly Janice for their excellent care.
