World-class cosmetic dermatology practice Carruthers & Humphrey has recently undergone a facelift of its own, transitioning to a stunning 4,500-square-foot space in its West Broadway building. “It’s clean, airy and unencumbered,” Medical Director Dr. Shannon Humphrey says of the new clinic layout, which features a panorama view extending from UBC to Burnaby.

Humphrey believes that the city’s undisputed natural beauty plays a big role in the aesthetic medicine industry. “Patients want a natural-looking outcome; something fresh and understated.” For the team at Carruthers & Humphrey—which includes Dr. Jean Carruthers, credited as a pioneer of clinical BOTOX, and Dr. Katie Beleznay—the real focus is on holistic wellness. “Wellness is the greater sum of the whole and physical appearance plays an important part.”

A refreshed clinic space is just one of many ways Carruthers & Humphrey maintains relevance in hyper wellness-aware Vancouver. All three doctors are recognized as leaders in research. “We feel a responsibility to drive research in the cosmetic arena,” says Dr. Humphrey, listing the new boutique’s expanded inventory of evidence-based skincare products as one of the most beneficial additions to the clinic. “From the highest level of individualized care, to the highest standard of foundational science, and wellness planning for short-, intermediate- and long-term results, we are committed to making our patients happy.”

Two new treatments are giving patients yet another reason to smile—non-surgical solutions for the dreaded double chin. Belkyra is an injectable treatment that uses deoxycholic acid to melt away excess fat under the chin, while CoolMini belongs to the CoolSculpting technology that freezes unwanted fat cells proven immune to diet and exercise. Having been involved in Belkyra clinical trials and physician training, and as long-time supporters of CoolSculpting, the team at Carruthers & Humphrey offers unique expertise on these cutting-edge treatments.

Stunning new space aside, the emphasis behind their 30 year legacy remains the same: helping people feel their best.
