If you are suffering with a wart or verruca, sk:n offers safe and effective treatment that will remove the condition and restore soft and flawless skin.
We offer three different treatment types to remove warts and verrucae. The best treatment option for you will be confirmed by your doctor after a full assessment at your consultation.
Whichever treatment method is used, the procedure usually only takes a few minutes. An anaesthetic may be applied before removal but isn't always necessary, as there is minimal discomfort during the treatment. The healthy skin around your wart or verruca won’t be damaged.
At your consultation, your Doctor will advise which treatment is best for you.
A highly targeted beam of laser light is aimed at the wart or verruca. The energy from the laser heats up the blood vessels feeding the problem area, which collapse in on themselves as a result and stop the blood supply. This starves the wart or verruca of nutrients so it naturally falls off after a few weeks.
Even if your warts have failed to respond to other treatments in the past, you are very likely to enjoy great results with laser wart removal. Particularly stubborn warts may require 5 or more treatments, but it is very rare that a wart refuses to budge completely.
The wart or verrucae is carefully cut out using a surgical scalpel. The wart or verrucae is removed immediately in this treatment option.
This procedure can be done under local anaesthetic and will require a small stitch in the skin.
This treatment method involves using Liquid Nitrogen to freeze off the wart or verruca. This causes the cells to die and naturally fall off.
The cold temperature kills the cells within the wart or verruca, as well as constricting the blood supply.
Immediately after treatment the skin treated may be pink and tender for a few days. In some cases there may also be some blistering and you might need to keep it covered. Once the area has healed, you might notice some darkening of the skin where the wart or verruca used to be. This is temporary and the skin will go back to normal. Once the wart or verruca has been successfully treated, it will naturally dry up and fall off just as any other dead skin would.
The level of comfort depends on the removal technique recommended. Laser Removal is virtually pain free. In more sensitive areas, it is described as feeling like the flick of an elastic band. For Excision Removal and Cryotherapy, the area will be numbed with a local anaesthetic so you won’t feel anything. After treatment the skin left behind may be tender for a few days and will need to be covered. It’s also best to use a strong sunscreen on the area for six months, as it will be more sensitive to sunlight.
Although you may feel some mild discomfort, the laser does not generally cause any pain. Sometimes, patients with sensitive skin benefit from the use of anaesthetic cream to numb the area during treatment.
You can have a wart or verruca removed from anywhere on your body. Our doctors have years of experience removing them from faces and sensitive and hard to reach places. We will choose the right removal method according to the area to be treated, in order to achieve the best possible results.
The wart removal treatment at sk:n uses a Pulsed Dye laser to target and destroy it without damaging the healthy skin around it. The laser cuts off the blood supply to the wart, thus safely taking the wart out of the picture.
The same wart or verruca will not grow back. Although if the virus that caused the wart or verruca is still active in your body, there is a possibility that new warts or verrucae may grow.
The number of treatments required to permanently remove your warts or verrucae are dependent on the size, location and number you may have. Many respond well and may only need one treatment to be completely removed, although particularly deep and stubborn warts or verrucae could need four or more treatments. During your consultation, your doctor will discuss your particular case, the number of treatments you will need and the results you can expect to see.
Our treatments are carried out by trained specialists in dermatology and are much more effective than home remedies available over the counter. Even stubborn warts and verrucae that haven’t responded to previous treatments can be easily treated using laser removal, although particularly deep and stubborn warts or verrucae may need multiple treatments.
Our lasers are able to penetrate deeper into the dermis to target the blood vessels feeding a stubborn wart or verruca, making treatment more successful. In cases where the wart or verruca is too deeply rooted for laser treatment to be effective, our doctors are able to surgically remove it in our hospital minor surgery theatre standard treatment rooms.

Friendly staff who make you feel welcome and comfortable as well as delivering a great service. Would highly recommend.
Great service, amazing and friendly staff. Highly recommend the clinic.
The clinic is very clean and the staff are welcoming and helpful.
Very good explanation of what was going to happen and very happy so far.
Remarkable reduction in hair growth after just two treatments. Can’t wait to see the results after the full 8 sessions of laser hair removal. The girls who work here are so lovely too. They really make you feel comfortable. Could not recommend more.
Thank you Bluewater sk;n
As a transgender woman (Male -> Female) who has been transitioning over the last 8 months SK:N Chester and the staff involved have literally changed my life. When I started I used to grow a dark thick beard that was clearly visible by the end of a day if I shaved in the morning. As you can imagine as someone who wants to be a female this was heartbreaking and made me extremely self conscious to the point where I did not want to go outside and caused me massive anxiety issues.
Since starting my 8 month course of laser hair removal at the clinic my facial hair reduction is about 85-90% which is a phenomenal difference. I can go 3-4 days without having to shave and I have super silky skin, never did I have any complications, I followed the instructions given to me after my first session and with good aftercare I am looking as feminine as I have always dreamed. This has given me a huge confidence boost, helped combat my gender dysphoria and now I can look at myself in the mirror and feel happy/comfortable with my appearance.
Transitioning has been hard and during my time I was seen by two nurses Katrina for 6 of my sessions and Barbara for 2 of them. Both are fantastic, they are skilled, comforting, welcoming, supportive and take an interest on how I'm doing and always offered their support. This was huge for me because instead of dreading the treatment I was looking forward to it, just to have a little catch up with the nurses. The other staff there have always been kind and welcoming with a smile on their face and this creates a great atmosphere.
The clinic was always spotless, never saw any mess, the treatment room was always clean and seemed cleaner than most hospitals which surprised me. For the laser I was given goggles to protect my eyes and cotton wool as an extra layer of protection as I am a very cautious about damaging my eyes the staff ensure every possibility is accounted for so nothing ever goes wrong which is reassuring but the cotton wool most likely did nothing but it made me a little more comfortable. The laser itself has a sting but is nothing unbearable, the upper lip hurts the most but the nurses helped me through it by letting me take a deep breath and doing one zap at a time to help make it easier. They always apologize when zapping you even though it's something I wanted which was sweet of them.
Overall I am very impressed with the staff, the results and how smooth the process is. I have my review left and in the future I plan to come back and purchase treatment for other areas that I want hairless.
If you're transgender and considering getting laser, it's worth every penny and the results speak for themselves as any shadow gets less and less each week. This helped change how I approach my daily life and now things are only looking up!
1,000,000 / 10 I would recommend this to anyone that was considering it. The staff are amazing and I am so glad I have access to something that helps me fight my dysphoria.
Thank you to all the staff at SK:N Chester, you're all amazing and I'll see you again soon!
I had thread vein treatment and after only one session my legs are so much better I look forward to the second course that should clear up the remaining veins. This year will be the first for a long time when I can wear shorts or swimsuit without embarrassment.
Very experienced staff
First time here and staff and facilities were great. Everything was explained well and my questions were encouraged. My expectation and desired result was discussed and what would be realistic for my treatment. Would definitely recommend and continue to use.
The appointment was how i wanted, the doctor was promt with the procedure and the result is to my satisfaction I would recommend SKN to a friend definitely.
I've had my first laser hair removal session and it's already working a treat. The staff are super friendly and helpful which made me feel totally comfortable. I would 100% recommend SK:N for my treatment and feel I will be signing up for others too.
I’ve only had one session of laser treatment for my underarms and have seen a massive decrease in hair growth! I’m very impressed and can’t wait for my next session. I’m planning on test patching other areas too. Amy at the London wall clinic has been great!
Great experience with SK:N. Calm and professional environment and I am already seeing results after just 1 lazer treatment! Would definitely recommend.
Really professional and friendly service. I saw the nurse initially who did everything she could to treat my spider veins. After trying several treatments over a number of months, we found out that they required a stronger laser that only the doctor could administer. I was booked in to see the doctor and my spider veins were gone within minutes! At every appointment, I was made to feel very comfortable and well informed of the treatment. Really happy with the service throughout and the final result has made such a big difference. I will definitely return if I ever have any other skin problems.
Very professional - the booking process and communication was efficient and the staff were very helpful. The clinic is clean and well located. Would recommend.
Great Service with a easy we can help attitude and open about what is the the beat solution to your issue.
Had Lip Injections and was very pleased with the results!
I visited the Canary Wharf clinic.
It wasn’t my first time having them ‘plumped’ and I loved the results!
Will be going back for more!
The assistant Deborah who dealt with me was excellent. Very professional and not pushy at all about products or services, just providing the information and allowing me the time to decide what I wanted to do without pressure.
Staff were friendly and professional. Very knowledgeable on their equipment and assuring on the aftercare of my treatment.
The staff were friendly yet professional and I felt comfortable before, during and after my treatment. I would 100% recommend SK:N.
