Why are we different?

South Face Skin Bournemouth About Page


  • We offer professionalism and expertise in all aspects of skin care.
  • We will assess and tailor treatments to your individual skin needs and desires.
  • Our aesthetic treatments are non-invasive and aim for a more youthful, natural appearance.


There are many skin and laser clinics which appear to offer similar services. However, they only rarely offer the expertise of a trained Dermatologist.

Your skin is very important to you, so why have treatment by someone who is not trained as a skin specialist?

Southface Skin Clinic is the only Dermatologist run skin clinic in Dorset to offer a wide range of cosmetic and laser procedures.

We also offer all you would expect from a general dermatology clinic, with treatment of a wide range of skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, warts, itching and acne, as well as nail, hair problems and skin cancer diagnosis and treatment.


Appointments are available Monday to Saturday – Please telephone to arrange a convenient time.
