The best part was that the lady spoke to me as if she was a trusted friendAnonymous, South Africa, 17 09 18

I had my scar removal at Advanced Skin Solutions. The clinic was fine and the doctor had a nice, professional setup. We used a Dermapen for the removal. I didn’t feel any pain, but there was a blood vessel under the eye that was punctured. I think this is because my skin is quite thin. They told me this bruise would go away. The procedure was 45 minutes. Pleased with the results. They managed to get rid of the scar for me, but it was a long process. I needed five or six sessions in total. She applied a numbing cream to the area before each treatment. The best part was that the lady spoke to me as if she was a trusted friend. I didn’t feel like just a patient, which was great.

The clinic was amazing when it comes to service, efficiency and appearanceLerato, South Africa, 26 05 17

I was fortunate enough to have access to quality staff and practitioners that went out of their way to make the experience of going to see a dentist more comfortable. I was pleasantly surprised at how efficient the staff was and how dedicated they were at making the experience of wisdom tooth extraction less intimidating. The clinic was amazing when it comes to service, efficiency, and appearance. The only problem I had was that the clinic was very expensive. Their prices were quite high including a consultation that went over R800.00
