    meaning definition

    Is there any difference between the following 2 below?

    Specialist Skin Centre
    Skin Specialist Centre

    Both are referring to clinic that provide specialist dermatological, skin care, acne treatment. Am I right??

    Re: meaning definition

    A "Specialist Skin Centre" could be staffed by cosmeticians (beauty therapists). In a "Skin Specialist Centre", at least in Australia, you'd probably expect dermatologists (skin specialists). But it might be different in Singapore. Other factors would indicate what sort of place it was (Is there a list of doctors names on the door? Can you see a young girl filing nails in a window?)
    "Dermatology Clinic" and "Beautician" would differentiate these two.

    I don't see any significant difference.
