I visited Dr. Firas for a consultation with regards to my birth mark removal. He explained the process thoroughly and executed it with high accuracy, swiftness and professionalism over a few sessions. His strong interpersonal approach and vast experience rendered visiting his clinic fun and made me feel safe and comfortable while he was operating. He is highly flexible, organised, artistic and diligent to a point of perfection. A few qualities which make him stand out from his peers as an award winning dermatologist.

I cannot thank Dr Firas Al-Niaimi enough, he has truly changed my life. After an accident which left me with 6 traumatic tattoo's ( dirt underneath the second layer of skin - the Dermis ) and several scars on my face, I had several consultations with skin specialists who were not prepared to work with me. I searched Dr Firas Al-Niaimi online, and as soon as I had my initial consultation, I could see straight away that he wanted to help me and most importantly that he could deliver. He gave me that confidence right from the outset. He explained all possible outcomes was very honest and gave me great comfort. Usually, traumatic tattoo removal takes many sessions to obtain the desired results. Dr Firas cleared all 6 traumatic tattoo's in one session. After the traumatic tattoos were removed, Dr Firas advised that he could smooth my skin and reduce scarring using the CO2 laser technique. I have just completed my 5th session and the results have been incredible, both myself and Dr Firas feel that the 5th session will completely erase any scarring, however even before the 5th session, I am now in a place that i could only have dreamed of before my treatment. I will always be grateful to Dr Firas for changing my life and giving me my confidence back. I cannot recommend him highly enough. He really does care and most importantly he delivered.

I am currently having treatment with Dr. Firas for acne/rosacea at his Skins clinic at Shepherds Bush green. using his new laser he has completely transformed my skin. The thread veins on the sides of my face have gone, the redness of my face has vastly reduced, I cannot believe the difference it's made to my confidence even at my age (62). No more not attending social occasions when flare ups occur, no more feeling that people are looking at my skin condition, Dr. Firas and his treament has been truly amazing and I cannot thank him enough.

I felt I had to write this review as Dr. Al Niami is an amazing doctor and he has managed to remove a lesion on my forehead which developed last Autumn. I have been using dermatologists for a few years now and even had a "celebrity one" and some other highly regarded ones who were fine with general dermatology but not with anything complex or advanced in my view. It was after much consultation with other doctors and money spent I was fortunate to find this doctor after much research. I had one appointment with him and was totally confident with him (as I have Asian skin and it can be harder/complex to treat) and he has a great bedside manner. I had one session of Picoway laser and then a second one a few weeks ago. He was supportive during the healing phases too and responded to my concerns with reassurance and clinical advice (even out of clinical hours). It is in the healing stages and almost invisible so I am very happy so far. I cannot recommend him enough in my view he is the hidden gem of Harley street. I would recommend him to anyone with skin issues without any hesitation.

I had no qualms about travelling down from my home near Newcastle to consult with Dr Al-Niami at the London Scar Clinic as I had heard and read that he is considered to be one of the top ( as well as one of the most prolific and widely published ) dermatologists in the country. My area of concern was rolling acne scars to both temples of the face. After examination, Dr Al-Niaimi recommended subcision and Sculptra filler followed by a second round of Sculptra filler a few months later. In addition to his undoubted clinical expertise, Dr Al-Niaimi's warm and engaging manner gave me total confidence in him. My confidence was not misplaced: the results are, I and others believe, nothing short of outstanding and completely exceeded my expectations ( please feel free to ask Dr Al-Niaimi to show you my before and after photos if he so agrees ). I would have no hesitation in recommending Dr Al-Niaimi to anyone with any area of dermatological concern.. He's a brilliant clinician as well as a true gentleman.
