At DestinationSkin, we understand that skin concerns can affect the way you feel about yourself so our treatments aim to help you feel you at your best. Skin problems come in all shapes and sizes, so we offer a wide range of skin treatments designed to address any concerns you have, from acne to ageing. Your journey will start with a complimentary consultation at one of our clinics, where our expert practitioner will discuss your skin concerns with you, before creating a bespoke treatment plan to tackle those issues and achieve the results you’ve been looking for.
What skin treatment is right for me?
If you have a skin concern that you’ve been looking to tackle, then selecting the most appropriate skin treatment is one of the first steps we’ll help you take. To make sure we pick out the right skin treatment for you, you’ll need to come in for an initial consultation where you can talk with one of our experts about your concerns and they can examine your skin closely to find the ideal solution. These consultations are free and will start you on the best path to reaching your skin goals.
During your complimentary skin consultation, our expert practitioner will clear your skin and do a few checks, including using a UV skin analysis system to look beneath the surface of your skin to analyse hydration levels, congestion, skin age and sun damage. With this information, they can provide you with a personal treatment and product prescription that looks to get the best results for you and your concerns.

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.
