At sk:n we offer the broadest range of dermatology treatments...
There are a variety of treatments offered at sk:n Clinics Edinburgh but the most common are summarised below.
Moles are small clusters of cells called 'melanocytes' that come together on the skin to form small brown or black patches of skin. These patches can be raised or flat on the skins surface. Mole removal can be carried out by either, shave, excision or laser removal. At sk:n, our medical protocols are set in place for your safety and to ensure you receive the best treatments, therefore a biopsy is done to rule out any chances of underlying concerns of the mole developing into a 'malignant melanoma' - a type of skin cancer.

After the tough and relentless battle through acne you can feel really deflated with the outcome, being left with scars and marks that are just as difficult to bear. sk:n Clinics have access to the most prestigious technology and expertise in the medical industry to be able to help you discover a brighter and smoother skin.

'Port Wine Stains', 'Strawberry Hemangiomahs' and 'Café au Lait' are some of the most common names given to birthmarks. Birthmarks are either a build up of faulty blood vessels or build up of melanin under the skins surface. These are medically known as Vascular and Pigmented birthmarks. At sk:n clinics we are able to treat these with specialised lasers that break down the colouration and help the mark fade and blend in with the surrounding skin.

Rosacea is recogniesd as being similar in appearance to the effects of a skin allergy, eczema or acne due to the redness that it produces. The exact cause of Rosacea is unknown but suggested links have been made towards blood vessel abnormalities, skin peptides and genetics. Rosacea is best treated in the early stages to gain control and prevent it worsening. There are many triggers for rosacea, such as exposure to sunlight, cold or hot weather, strenuous exercise, alcohol, spicy foods, dairy products and more.
