As well as getting treatments and buying skincare in a clinic, there is also the option to do this online through a trusted remote skincare clinic. At Face Dr, we are stockists of some incredible medical-grade skincare ranges — such as Obagi Medical and ZO Skin Health — and we operate our skincare clinic remotely so we can reach clients all over the world, chat to them about their skincare needs via a free 10-30 minute online video consultation, and prescribe the products we believe to be most effective for their specific skin type.  

If you are worried about how much your in-clinic appointment might cost, or how you will fit it in around work and other responsibilities, our free online consultations allow you to choose from a 10 minute to 30 minute consultation, and could be perfect for you.

The Skin Bar

 

#5 The Skin Bar 

The Skin Bar has clinics all across Sydney, in Double Bay, Cronulla and Brookvale, and offers various treatments with a focus on holistic anti-ageing. The interior design makes your visit to the clinic feel relaxing and special, and their team of knowledgeable aestheticians are dedicated to getting to the core of your skin needs and creating a bespoke treatment plan that will bring you real results that last. It’s their approach that generates reviews like this:

"Over the past 5 years Sam has completely transformed my skin and in turn my confidence.

It’s the truly bespoke approach and expertise that saw my acne scarring, congestion and pigmentation vanish... I recommend the Skin Bar to everyone; no matter your skin concern." - Billie, The Skin Bar client 

As well as anti-ageing treatments, they offer services to suit all skin needs, such as help with fighting acne, or skin peels to perfect your complexion. With various facial options, peels, LED light treatments, skin needling options and more, as well as carefully chosen brands like Biologi and Dr Spiller to keep your new results going long-term, you can design the ideal treatment plan with your aesthetician and start to work towards the skin that’ll make you most confident.
