We believe that by partnering our exclusive line of aesthetic devices with the Riversol T Plus line, we can help provide a more comprehensive treatment option, to the Canadian medical cosmetic consumer and marketplace in general", said Dr. Darin Peterson, owner of NexGen.

The Riversol T Plus line was developed by internationally-recognized dermatologist Dr. Jason K. Rivers, to deliver superior quality and effectiveness. The formulations efficiently moisturize all skin types, and diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The products have been prepared with a focus on maximizing results while minimizing irritancy and potential allergic reactions, as they do not have perfumes and fragrances, or any other known allergens. This makes the product safe and effective for all skin types.

"We are extremely pleased to be entering into this partnership with such a well recognized and fast growing company", stated Dr. Jason K. Rivers. "NexGen will undoubtedly help spread the benefits of Riversol across Canada, that so many of our existing local customers have already been appreciating."

About Riversol Skin Care:

After 6 years of research and development, the Riversol T Plus product line was launched by Riversol ( ) in the fall of 2006 on a local basis, and is now being launched nationally with NexGen Lasers Inc. The Riversol T Plus line was created by well-known dermatologist, Dr. Jason Rivers of Vancouver, BC, who has worked for many years as a public education advocate on sun awareness and skin cancer issues.

Dr. Rivers began developing the line in response to numerous requests from patients confused by the plethora of skin care products on the market. Throughout the development process, efforts have been focused on creating products that are both anti-aging and suitable for sensitive skin. The result is the Riversol T Plus line, aimed at both men and women, which is available solely through physicians' offices.

All Riversol T Plus products incorporate a highly effective skin moisturizing system, together with anti-oxidants, including thujaplicin (pronounced thoo-ya-pli-sin), an extract of the Pacific Red Cedar tree, (and the 'T' in T Plus). Regular use results in a reduction in the appearance of fine lines, and an improvement in the tone and texture of the skin.
