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.

Capillus RX 312Capillus laser therapy devices use red-light therapy clinically proven to promote hair growth. Capillus' independently reviewed, double-blind clinical trial showed an increase in hair thickness when using Capillus, compared to a placebo device. Of those that observed hair regrowth, there were also no reports of adverse effects during their participation. The trial concluded that Capillus' laser technology is safe for use and effective at helping stimulate hair growth for treating androgenic alopecia. *only available at Physician offices
