Carruthers & Humphrey Team Favourites

It’s no secret the team at Carruthers & Humphrey are passionate about beauty. We love what we do and have experienced many of the treatments and products available at the clinic. Each staff member is on a customized 360° plan created by our Doctors. From time to time patients have asked us questions like; Which under eye cream do you use? Do you like powdered sunscreen better than liquid? Have you tried CoolSculpting?

So in an effort to help you stay on track with your 2017 goals, we are delighted to share our favourite treatments and skin care products with you. The next time you are in the clinic, please feel free to ask us about our experience. Nothing makes us happier than helping you look and feel your best!
