DERMATOLOGY AND TRANSGENDER PEOPLE

Understanding your needs

Are you transgender and looking for a dermatology clinic that understands your unique needs? At sk:n, we have years of experience in providing dermatology treatments for transgender patients. Our doctor-led clinics provide award-winning care, in a safe and confidential environment.

FEEL COMFORTABLE IN YOUR SKIN

There are a number of unique skin-related challenges faced by transgender people. We have a wealth of expertise in treating these issues and are able to build tailor-made treatment programmes to help you feel happy and confident in your own skin.

HOW DO HORMONES AFFECT YOUR SKIN?

Transgender hormonal treatments can have a massive impact on the skin’s appearance and health. Increased testosterone levels can cause the skin to produce excess oil, which can lead to blocked pores and breakouts. Approximately 40% of female-to-male transsexuals are believed to suffer from acne for this reason. During male-to-female hormonal treatment, heightened levels of oestrogen can cause the skin to become dryer, which can cause itchy uncomfortable skin, and even eczema in some cases. Increased oestrogen can also cause hyperpigmentation and freckling.

TREATMENTS TAILORED TO YOU

We provide a variety of different treatments to tackle acne and can even prescribe medication if necessary. We also have a wide range of rejuvenation treatments to help tackle dry skin and fade pigmentation, including skin peels and microdermabrasion. As a transgender person, you may find it difficult to maintain a clear and even complexion due to ongoing hormonal changes, and may always struggle with this. We can create a treatment programme that is both effective and sustainable, to help you maintain the health of your skin in the long term.

Hair Removal

We understand that finding a hair removal solution that is both effective and long-lasting can be a real challenge. At sk:n, we have delivered more than a million laser hair removal treatments with our state-of-the art laser system.

We can help people achieve up to a 90% reduction in unwanted body and facial hair, with life-changing results. We also offer electrolysis treatments in some of our clinics, which means we have the most appropriate treatment for you regardless of your skin type or hair type. Managing excess body and facial hair can be a huge source of anxiety for people going through male-to-female transition, but we're here to support you. We have decades of experience and work according to strict medical protocols, so you can trust us.

Fillers and Injectables Treatments

Non-surgical injectable treatments such as dermal fillers, lip fillers and BOTOX® injections can be used to sculpt and define your facial features to help create a more feminine or masculine profile.

Certain facial features can make a person appear more overtly masculine or feminine – but not every transgender person wants to go through invasive surgery to change their physical appearance. Injectable treatments, such as Fillers, can be used to create fuller, more feminine-looking lips, or a stronger more-masculine jawline. They can also be used to create fuller, more prominent-looking cheekbones. BOTOX® injections create a smoother, more feminine forehead and a more dramatic arch to the eyebrows. Our skilled practitioners will be able to work with you to create the look you are trying to achieve in a safe and medical environment.

PROFESSIONAL ADVICE YOU CAN TRUST

sk:n employs more qualified doctors than any other skin clinic chain and is regulated by the Care Quality Commission. This means all of our treatments are carried out by qualified professionals, in a safe clinical environment. We would never allow an untrained practitioner to deliver your treatment and we only use medical grade dermal fillers and injectable products.

We provide confidential, professional advice and will work at your pace to get the results you’re looking for.
