The Hamilton Fraser Award for Best Clinic South England

Best Clinic categories are awarded regionally. The award is only open to clinics that were established before 1 January 2020. Those that were established after should enter the Award for Best New Clinic UK & Ireland and will be judged on commitment to excellence in customer service, patient care and patient safety, as well as evidence of good feedback from patients. Aesthetics Media reserves the right to move your clinic entry to another regional or new clinic category if deemed appropriate. You will be notified of this change. If your clinic is part of a clinic group, only one clinic within the group may be entered and not the entire group. There will be no voting process and the winner will be decided by the Aesthetics Awards judging panel.

At Perfect Skin Solutions we ensure we offer an exceptional service to our patients by combining industry leading technology which is both safe and effective with our highly trained and knowledgeable staff, offering exceptional results to patients.

This year, we have worked tirelessly to offer our usual exceptional service, but also have expanded the way we educate our patients. This has included a beautiful new website, which has a much improved user journey as well as easier to consume educational content. The addition of free video content on social media on a range of medical topics including Excema and the covid-19 vaccine, has led to not only an increase in enquiries, but more importantly, an increase in medical information which is both free and easy to understand for those looking for assistance. 

Community is at the heart of everything we do, so we ensure we work with our community to give back through our charity support work and donations.

Finally, after a five year journey, we launched CellDerma, a bioceutical skincare range which is proven to substantially improve the appearance of the patient’s skin, but also dramatically reduce patient downtime following treatments and improve the results from said treatments.
