Certain hospitals may have a few “packages” for the patients asking about prices. Although consultations are pretty much standard to all doctors in the same field, treatment options may vary depending on the expertise of the doctor. The range of consultation charges are from 300-500 QR. Popular skin treatments including laser hair removal, face lifts, peeling, and injections vary in price.

Specialized doctors are available. Although many of the skin-related services are marketed heavily, their consultation prices seem to be reasonable with a range between 100 – 300 QR.  Treatments always include discounts and range between 500 – 1000 QR in general. However, more advanced treatments like laser hair removal, facial peels, and fillers, require multiple sessions and so the price will naturally increase. Some clinics have a free consultation for treatments to ensure that if the patients “don’t need” the treatment, then they don’t waste their money.

  • Private clinic:

Although not much exists for this particular specialty, those who do exist offer the utmost comfort to patients. With flexible prices, high quality services, and one on one time with the specialized doctor him/herself. Consultation charges are usually free, or very trivial.
