We are just as excited to be in the Clinic as you are, however it's important we go over some added ground rules first! 

Whilst Prior Skin Co always takes infection control measures very seriously, and abides by NSW Health Clinical Infection Control policies and guidelines, Due to the ongoing Pandemic Covid-19, we have a few extra measures to ensure the safety of our clients and staff. 

​​

We understand that some of these measures may take some getting used to, so we thankyou for your ongoing cooperation and patience, as we navigate these new times together.
