At our clinic, we specialise in providing medical skin treatments for men, women and children. Our aim is to help you achieve healthy skin.
At the skin clinic we always look as to why something is happening rather than just carrying out a procedure. We can make recommendations as to things a patient could change in their skin routine, in order to alter their future skin health.
A consultation with our skin expert is the first step towards any treatment. Consultations usually last around 15 minutes and cost £70. If you undertake any treatment with us the cost of the consultation will be deducted from the total cost.
Please note the clinic provides skin diagnosis and procedures only. We are not dermatologists.
Following a consultation the normal outcomes are:
In the initial consultation we will discuss the treatment required. Often we recommend some pre-treatment with skin exfoliation, hyper-moisturizing or anti-bacterial soap for example.
We use anaesthetic gel prior to many treatments and the application of this will be discussed in the consultation.
It is important to treat any problems quickly and consistently. Sometimes using “over-the-counter” treatments may seem like the cheaper option but as well as damaging the skin, it may not alter the problem at all. You also need to be committed to treating the problem and sometimes a lack of time or consistency can cause the problems to get larger or sspread therefore prolonging the issue.
A skin tag is a small, harmless growth of skin that appears on the surface of the skin. Skin tags are common and usually appear in areas of friction such as the neck, underarms, bustline and groin area. While skin tags are harmless, they can be a cosmetic concern for some people. At our clinic, we offer safe and effective treatments for skin tag removal.
A mini consultation will be required initially to assess the nature of the skin lesion removal £70, a surgery appointment will then be made for the procedure to take place from £300, a biopsy may be required from £300, followed by a free review appointment a week later.
Skin Tag Removal is:
Most warts and verrucas are caused by one of the many human papillomavirus (HPV). They are thick rough structures that usually occur on hands, and feet although it is possible to get them in other areas too. Whilst figuring out where you contracted a wart or verruca can be difficult, they often from the use of communal items or from being barefoot in wet areas such as showers or swimming venues. Warts are unlikely to be painful whereas verrucas often are – both can be painful and uncomfortable to remove. Removal of both of these types of growth is not a simple process and therefore we offer a plan for removal at our clinic that aims at getting rid of the wart or verruca for good.
Moles or naevi are areas of skin cells that grow as a cluster on the skin. These are often harmless changes in the skin and are genetically determined and well defined in shape ranging in colour from skin colour to dark brown/black. On occasions these skin clusters can develop and become irregular in shape, structure and appearance. Any alterations should be examined especially if there is a history of high UV damage or family history
Seborrheic keratosis are irregular plaques of skin cells that build over time and are usually associated with family genetics and age. They often look like they sit on the skin and can be rough and dry. Sometimes they can be itchy and can cause irritation of the surrounding skin. They can vary in colour from yellow to dark brown/black. They tend to be benign structures.

Healthy skin is not just about looking good, but it’s also essential for our overall health and well-being. Our skin is the largest organ in our body, and it protects us from harmful environmental factors such as UV radiation, pollution, and bacteria. By taking care of our skin, we can prevent skin problems such as acne, wrinkles, age spots and skin cancer and look younger than our years.
There are several ways to look after your skin, including:
As we age, our skin becomes more fragile and prone to damage. Our skin’s natural ability to repair itself decreases, and it becomes thinner and drier. Our genetic make-up allows the development of aspects such as moles and keratosis plaques. Plus as we age we also don’t use the building blocks we are provided with effectively and this increases the chance of these structures forming.
Yes, it’s essential for children to learn how to take care of their skin from an early age. By establishing good skincare habits, children can prevent skin problems such as acne and sun damage. Encouraging children to wear sunscreen and practice good hygiene can help them maintain healthy skin for life. At our clinic, we offer a range of skincare treatments suitable for children.
The Skin Clinic recently removed a large and unsightly wart from the middle of my face. It was cut out and stitched up so quickly and efficiently by Caroline, I can’t recommend her highly enough! After 4 weeks I have no scar at all!
