Age Spots

Many people develop age spots – also referred to as sun spots or liver spots – as they get older. Typically seen on the face, neck, arms and hands, they are benign and thought to be caused by sun exposure. These spots can increase in size and darken over time. While harmless, many patients choose to treat them for cosmetic reasons.


This common skin condition features redness and swelling in the face, ears, neck, chest, scalp and/or back.

Early symptoms include easily flushing or blushing, which may lead to consistent redness, pimples and the appearance of threadlike blood vessels in the centre of your face and then over your cheeks, chin, nose and forehead. In general, men typically have more severe cases.

DiamondTome™ Skin Resurfacing System

Resurfacing is a technique for removing the topmost layer of skin leaving it supple and vibrant. The DiamondTome™ wand removes this layer of skin by gently exfoliating the skin with natural diamond chips, while at the same time vacuuming the dead skin cells away in a sterile and controlled manner. Removing this outer layer of dead skin cells leaves a smoother texture and promotes the growth of healthy new skin cells.
