OUR SERVICES

Skin Medic is a private billing practice. Our fees vary depending on the service, examination, procedure or time required. These fees reflect the costs, time and skills required to sustain a quality service without government funding. We appreciate that there are patients whose financial circumstances limit their ability to meet private fees, and we continue to provide an affordable service to enable everyone to access our clinics. Our expertise are in the fields of Skin Cancer, Medical Lasers and Facial Aesthetics. No referral letters are required.

Our main clinic is based at 264 Oxford Street, Levin. Clinical Nurse Specialists and/or trained dermoscopists are available for consultation or digital imaging of skin lesions, supported by Dr Wynand Louw. Please note that Dr Louw is currently not available for face-to-face consultations, but does check each individual lesion photographed via a teledermoscopic platform. We also have a physician with extensive surgery experience regularly visiting Levin for skin lesion excisions and biopsies.
