We have medical grade cosmetic skincare creams available to suit skin types and budgets.

We have Dermastamp procedures for reducing fine lines, skin pores and improving old and new scars including acne scars.

NZDSCC is the first team based dermatology practice in the Wellington region and therefore at least one of our dermatologists is present each day. This enables us to offer a wide range of services and provide the most effective and advanced treatments.

We encourage people who have concern about their skin to see our specialist trained team directly or the GP for a referral letter, which is always welcome.
