Every time I visit Spring Skin, I am truly impressed with the competence and professionalism of this top notch clinic. During my last appointment, I had treatment to address some sun damage, a few injectables and the surgical removal of some bothersome skin keratoses. Dr vanVliet took the time to thoroughly assess my skin and offer various solutions. She and her staff also explained every step as we went through the treatments and procedures. Despite the fair distance for me to travel to Spring Skin, I have found it to be worthwhile in every way. I am beyond thrilled with the overall experience and impressive results.


Dr vanVliet and her team in Spring Spring are highly professional and very respectful of privacy and the personality of each client. The office is exceptionally clean and welcoming. Dr vanVliet has an artist’s eye and a surgeon’s hand. I have thorough confidence in her aesthetic advice and skills. I would recommend this office for anyone seeking basic skin maintenance to age defying therapies, from removal of simple skin lesions to more complicated, larger excisions. The end result is an advertisement in itself.

I am absolutely delighted to provide a review for Spring Skin! As someone who had been going to Vancouver several times a year for skin care, I was thrilled to discover Spring Skin right here on Salt Spring island. Immediately I received friendly and knowledgeable service from the office manager and my initial consult was an absolute delight! The clinic itself is lovely and inviting. I had all my questions answered and left with a treatment plan. My treatments have all gone as expected and I am in love with the results. Spring Skin will now be a regular part of my self care and skin care routines and I cannot wait to go back and try more of what they have to offer. Vancouver level treatments and service right here on Salt Spring – simply fantastic!
