A consultation is critical for a proper assessment of your needs or requirements. Our practitioners will be able to give you an exact cost prior to you proceeding with any treatment.

If you would like one of our practitioners to perform a preliminary assessment online prior to a consultation, please send photos of the area to be treated to info@vci.com.au. It is possible for us to then suggest appropriate treatments for your concern as well as give you an approximate cost. Please understand that this does not replace a proper consultation with one of our practitioners.
