Our most frequent enquiry's about the treatments that we offer are for mole removal, acne treatments, acne scarring, lumps and bumps and birthmark removal. Below you can find out more about the treatments that we offer.
Birthmarks are brown or red pigmented marks on the skin that appear in various shapes, sizes and shades. They can appear anywhere on the body and are usually present at birth or shortly after.
Some typical names used to describe birthmarks are Port Wine Stains, Hemangiomas and Strawberry birthmarks. These Birthmarks are either Vascular; a build up of faulty blood vessels under the skins surface or Pigmented; a build of melanin under the skins surface.
Treatment for birthmarks requires a laser called PULSE DYE LASER

When you discover a bump or small lump on the skin, this can sometimes be a little worrying. Therefore it is key that the correct diagnosis is made by an experienced and medically trained professional. Lumps and Bumps occur for several reasons from a build-up of dead skin cells or keratin that creates a spot, cyst or milium or an overproduction of cells forming a skin tag, Keloid scar or mole.
Some people are more likely to develop skin growths based on their genetics. At sk:n we will take a closer look at the growth and recommend the best course of treatment.
Acne scars are different to acne marks. Acne scars are deeper and form indentations in the skin which are more difficult to remove and require intense laser treatments to help promote new skin and smooth out the skins surface. If you currently still suffer from acne but have scarring from previous acne then we would treat that first and foremost. Avoiding picking, and squeezing spots as this will help to reduce the effects of marks and scarring.
There are a few different options available to treat acne scars including, strong skin peels, laser treatment and also micro needling.

Moles are a collection of cells that form together called 'melanocytes' to create a small patch of brown or black skin in various sizes that can be raised or flat on the surface. Moles are generally harmless but can occasionally be a worry which is why we would recommend seeing a medically trained professional to take a closer look at the mole and look at removal options available to you. Our doctors are available weekly for an appointment unlike a long wait with the NHS.
