The Geelong Veins, Skin & Laser (formerly Geelong Cosmetic & Laser Medical Centre) has been established since 1991. Centrally located on the fringe of the Geelong City Centre, in McKillop Street, the heritage listed rooms are readily accessible. There is the convenience of ample nearby street parking. All consultations are carried out in a thoroughly professional environment with great consideration shown towards patient privacy.
Geelong Veins, Skin & Laser specialises in non-surgical skin, vein and cosmetic procedures. All procedures are performed in our rooms without requiring general anaesthetics, hospitalisation, or cutting of the skin. The latest procedures and techniques are used to achieve maximal results with minimal downtime. For the majority of procedures patients can resume work and normal activity on the same day as treatment.
Our friendly staff are able to answer any queries and provide you with any information that you may need about our services. They can also help you make an appointment with one of our experienced practitioners. There is no need for a referral from a general practitioner to come to the clinic.
Geelong Veins, Skin & Laser aims to provide patients with the highest level of care possible. Every doctor working at Geelong Veins, Skin & Laser has undertaken extensive postgraduate training in laser medicine and cosmetic medicine, and all of our cosmetic nurses and dermal therapists have University qualifications and many years of experience in the skincare industry.
