Bio Skin Clinic (Stonehaven), was launched in June 2018 by Ruth Strachan with the vision of offering a less aggressive approach to medical aesthetics.  The emphasis of the Bio Skin Clinic is focused on offering results driven treatments.  Each treatment not only enhances visual looks but also addresses overall health and wellbeing.  It is Ruth’s ultimate goal to help clients become the very best version of themselves, both inside and out.
