What our clients say
Recently had Lip Fillers at DS City Clinic. Firstly the clinic was lovely and clean and all the staff there were lovely. Dr Jones performed my treatment. She relaxed me, talked me through procedure, what to expect, before, during and after. She was understanding when felt mild discomfort. I have had this procedure before, and had not great results at a different clinic. The results I got from Destination Skin, namely Dr Jones were amazing! Very natural looking fuller lips. Very much recommended! I will be going back to City for more treatments in the future.
