Dr Dev Patel, Medical Director
“Everyone at the clinic from reception staff, to therapists, to Dr Patel have the highest standards of professionalism; knowledge and client care. You will always leave the clinic knowing that you and your skin have been expertly looked after.” – Elizabeth
“There is only one person I would trust to put needles in my face and that is Dr Patel! I am so happy with the results, not looking like a different person, just putting the clock back a few years…the sagginess is lifted and the spring is back in my step. Thank you also to his amazing assistant who froze and vibrated my face so much I could hardly feel a thing and prevented any bruising. I would not hesitate in recommending Perfect Skin Solutions to anyone that wants a professional and caring approach and a natural-looking result.” – Sandra
“Personable, professional, experienced and thoroughly lovely people. I’ve been on a bit of an inner journey of transformation and I can’t think of anyone better than Dr. Dev to help me with some of the external work! It’s a safe, relaxing environment and I never feel sold to, but rather advised and guided gently about what is best and most comfortable for me. I trust Dr Dev implicitly. I won’t share what I’ve done, you’ll have to guess and, if you can’t guess, then that’s your proof the team here know exactly what they’re doing. Cannot recommend highly enough.” – Tash
