With an ever-increasing number of skin clinics in Cambridge, all offering different services with varying prices and claiming to be the best choice, we would like to try to help you cut through the confusion and make the choice that’s best for you and your skincare goals.

Before we launch into the full review of our top picks for skincare clinics and dermatologists in Cambridge, there are a few other factors you may be considering when choosing your skin clinic. Firstly, how much is it going to cost you for a professional skincare consultation? Secondly, you might be wondering how much a professional, cosmeceutical skincare regime will cost you. Finally, whether you want your consultation to be in-clinic or online via video. Of course, there are pros and cons to both – in short, if you would rather have access to your Skin Specialist from anywhere in the UK without leaving your home or office in Cambridge, then a free Video Skincare Consultation could be an option for you. However, if you would prefer to travel in-clinic for your consultation, then looking for a physical clinic in Cambridge will be best for you.

At Face Dr, we know how important it is to find the best match for your skincare. You want to feel confident that your clinic, skin expert and skincare products are all working to achieve your skincare goals. Different people have different skincare needs, and it is important that you choose the right clinic for you, rather than a “one size fits all” answer.
