sk:n help clients find an affordable way to discover their best skin
19th February 2015
In a recent survey carried out by sk:n clinics, it was found that as many as 1 in 5 women are too embarrassed to leave the house due to a skin complaint, whilst more than half the two thousand women surveyed said that their skin complaint dramatically knocked their confidence.
Four out of ten women cite lack of disposable income as the biggest obstacle to caring for their skin.
sk:n clinics know that people don't always have the means and so are working with partners to ensure we can address this situation.
- First of all, we offer a variety of treatments and products, which we frequently discount. Right now, facial laser hair removal is at 30% off, using the best lasers in the country and the highest trained staff
- Secondly, we offer interest free credit for more expensive courses. Find out more here.
- Thirdly, we take on more GP referrals than any other provider. So ask your GP if you can be referred to sk:n, as 900,000 people are referred to dermatologists each year.
- Finally, if you have health insurance with BUPA, ask if they can refer you to us as part of your plan.
