Dermaskin has been established for over ten years and has clinics in Cardiff and Bristol. It was established to improve the standard of aesthetic medical services in our capital city and the South West.
Dermaskin specifically wanted to bring the personalised service back into the sector and allow patients to access high quality treatments without the need to travel to London. We caught up with one of the partners Dr Sid Gautam to find out more.
Who are the partners in the business?
Myself (Dr Sid Gautam), and Dr Helen Rimmer are the principal partners together with Jen Fitzpatrick who is a long-standing associate clinician.
How many staff members do you have and what are their roles?
We have two dental nurses – Jordan is head dental nurse and Loren is a senior dental nurse. We also have a number of administrators and receptionists – Caren, Emily, Helly and Lizzie
What services do you offer your clients?
We offer a comprehensive medical service to our patients and clients including vaccination and travel vaccination services. We have high demand for our BHRT – Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy service where we can safely replace hormones that naturally drop as our bodies age.
We offer Botox and Dermal Fillers for a variety of medical and cosmetic treatments. We also treat patients regularly in our laser suite, where we have invested in the latest CO2 laser technology to treat sun damaged and prematurely ageing skin. Ablation lasers of the type that we carry are the gold standard in rejuvenating and tightening lax, photo-damaged skin.
We also offer a full dental service including orthodontic treatments. We have seen great demand for orthodontics as people have become aware of the importance of an attractive smile with straight teeth. We also offer in-chair teeth whitening, which is extremely popular all year round as it shows immediate results and makes teeth look amazing.
Does the clinic have any specialities?
We specialise in medical botox treatments; for headaches and migraines, facial palsy and cosmetic botox treatments, facial contouring with dermal fillers, orthodontics, BHRT, wellness checks, dermal filler treatments and vaccinations.
What are your most requested treatments?
They would have to be our botox and dermal filler treatments, wellness checks, orthodontics and facial contouring.
Do you have a payment plan option?
Yes, we have a direct debit option for clients.
Do you offer vouchers?
Yes we do and they are available via our website in different denominations depending on budget and requirements.
What do you think makes your clinic special?
We offer a comprehensive line of treatments in-house and can therefore provide clients with an overall ‘makeover’ whilst maintaining the highest levels of clinical safety.
We have treated thousands of happy clients over the years and it is our rejection of fad and fly-by-night offerings that have gained us the reputation of the ‘no-bull’ clinic and the go-to place to receive sound and ethical advice.
We never sell to our clients but merely provide information that can then be digested at home. We do not have flash sales or last-minute offers, and this has blessed us with an industry leading retention and loyalty rate.
We are approachable and affable, and we want the experience to be like that of visiting a friend, albeit one who knows a lot about skin, health and keeping the ageing process at bay.
We would love for your readers to join the thousands of happy clients, who we regard as friends, and look forward to welcoming them to Dermaskin.
