Carruthers & Humphrey World-Leading Research

Clinical Research

When most patients visit our West Broadway office, they meet our patient care team: a combination of doctors and nurses whose focus on providing the best in cosmetic dermatology is felt by everyone who walks through our doors.

But most patients don’t get to know about our work in clinical research to the same extent. Our doctors care deeply about elevating the standard for scientific evidence in latest cosmetic procedures and products — but they couldn’t do it alone. Behind our physician team is a talented clinical research team.

It all started nearly twenty years ago, when Doctors Jean and Alastair Carruthers first started researching the dermatological effects of botulinum toxin A, more commonly known today as BOTOX®. Since then, we have completed more than 60 studies, involving over 1,900 participants and helping multiple products get to market, including Belkyra, Juvederm, Latisse, Dysport, Xeomin and Radiesse. What started as a single room has grown into a full department and our team of world-class researchers are at the forefront of cosmetic research in Canada.

We take great pride in our contribution to cosmetic research. By rooting our clinic in research, our staff has an unparalleled level of expertise and understanding about the science behind cosmetic treatments and products. It’s largely thanks to them that Carruthers & Humphrey is recognized on a global scale for our contributions to the industry, and we look forward to bringing new ground-breaking products into the clinic in the future.
