Our Clients' Reviews

Dr Alia treated me over a course of 6 months with great results. She made me realise that stress was making my skin condition worse; something I did not realise.

B Foster

I have suffered from acne throughout my life. I actually get compliments about my skin now, which is reassuring.

R Butt

She has been especially helpful tweaking my skincare when needed, like when I’m stressed or run down. In my pregnancy she created a personal plan to suit my needs.

A Riley

Dr Alia was invited on to Frank Mitchell's U105 show, to talk about the link between mind and skin including the effect of skin conditions on mental health, the impact of the global pandemic, and treating common problems like acne and eczema
