When was the Laser Clinic established and the Clinics basic concept?

The Laser Clinic was first established in April 2004 in Sea Point, Cape Town by esteemed European doctors with over 20 years experience in advanced laser therapies. We where the first Laser Clinic offering advanced laser treatments of its kind at the time in the medical and cosmetic field in South Africa. Since then we have newly relocated to Canal Walk and  busy as ever.

The Laser Clinic has a variation of 8 lasers, The Ultra Pulse CO2 laser and the Micro Fractional CO2 laser that are exclusively only available at the laser Clinic.

Main concept: offering the latest grade of lasers and treatments technology has to offer in the cosmetic and medical field through our skilled and well trained specialists.

 

Why laser?
