I've been battling with Rosacea and Melasma for the past few years, and had no luck with treating my conditions until I started seeing Dr. Landells and his staff. Through education of my conditions and using top notch products I have learned how to manage my skin and it has never looked healthier. Thank you to an amazing group of people.
My first visit to The Landells Clinic was so pleasant and I was beyond impressed! My experience was everything I could have asked for and more - the professional staff are so informative and helpful. After a quick consultation I was put on the right path to determine a foundational skincare routine (super newbie here) and my treatment gave me the boost of confidence I was hoping for. Highly, highly, recommend.
- I went to The Landells Clinic over 20 years ago seeking a simplified skin regimen on professional advice supported by a dermatologist. I have been more than pleased with Landells' honest advice and never felt a product or procedure was recommended if it was not truly beneficial for my needs and goals. I recently tried the Secret PRO witty PRP and was thrilled! I did not tolerate microneedling well but found this procedure infinitely more comfortable. I will definitely incorporate it as part of my regular maintenance. I'm 53 years old and strangers still compliment my skin; a true testament to the professional advice at The Landells Clinic. I couldn't be happier,
Had the pro fractional laser skin resurfacing for my acne scars. I've been struggling with acne scars for close to 10 years and feel like I've tried everything. The staff was incredibly helpful, informative and professional. The procedure itself, although a bit long (2-3 hours) was in a comfortable setting. The laser itself lasted 20-25 minutes, but wow. After two weeks I can already see incredible results. Seriously a life changing procedure for those with acne scars. Amazing, thank you to the clinic.
