sk:n is home to more consultant dermatologists, doctors, plastic surgeons, nurses and therapists, than any other UK dermatology service provider. The sk:n team in Portsmouth will ensure that your visit to the clinic is truly worthwhile: at sk:n we are passionate about helping you discover better skin. So, whether you suffer from acne, unwanted facial hair, regret an old tattoo, or simply just want to freshen up your complexion – we have the most effective treatments on the market to help you achieve the results you long for.
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.

Very quick delivery,easy website,
I visited the Sk:n clinic for laser hair removal, they were very professional, made me feel at ease and talked me through the whole procedure in detail. Ive had my first session with great aftercare advice and i'm really happy the results so far
It’s a must for everyone xxx
The very best quality products provided by top quality service.
I was amazed buy the service and after care! The appointment was so quick and easy to book and the doctors and nurses we so helpful! I would highly reccomend!
Amazing, polite staff! I was made to feel so comfortable when I had my consultation and my treatment. Looking forward to the rest of my sessions!
Sk:n has been absolutely amazing for me. I started sk:n in January with Moderate Acne which really effected my confidence. Since January I have worked through a selection of treatments and home care which has completely changed my skin and I am much more confident about it. This is the first thing that I have ever found to make such a big difference to my skin. I started with very bumpy out of control skin with quite a bit of scarring. Now my skin is smooth, almost acne free most of the time and the scarring and redness has gone down soo much. I can’t thank Sk:n enough for both the products, the treatments and the amazing help of the skin practitioners. They create what’s right for you and what work with you and what you want to do and achieve. Amazing!
I really do like these products, the quality is great and I find them really effective. Service was great. I will be using them again.
Very nice ladies n clean salon
Very friendly and made me feel at ease
Everything was great, thanks!
My treatments were for laser hair removal on upper lip/ bikini and under arms.
Not only were the staff very professional and talked me through every step of the process in a clear and a concise way, they were also so lovely and made me feel completely at ease!
I have only had one session and have already seen HUGE results. I was recommended by a friend and was initially wondered if it would work for me but literally tell everyone I see about the results I’m seeing- it’s amazing!
I have only had my first laser session and I'm already seeing the difference can definitely say it's working 👌
The sunscreen is the Best Buy ever. A bit pricy but well worth the money and if you buy when the offers are on it’s a very good bargain. I would highly recommend.
had my first laser treatment today and it went really well however i completely forgot to ask for my starter pack including the cooling mist and aloe vera gel which i am pretty sure I paid for and it wasnt given to me by my clinician so I was wondering if it could be sent to me in the post as I wont be able to get to my clinic now until my next appointment in september , couldn't find an email address anywhere to enquire and thought it wasn't really urgent enough to ring in about.
I had gone through my first treatment of laser hair removal. My body hair is soften and lesser after the first treatment. I am anticipating for the following treatment to make me look better and confident in front of public.
My first treatment at Cambridge for a wart removal has been so far been very successful. Dr Holt is an expert in laser technology and is passionate about how they work. The reception area is just like sitting at home in your living room with refreshments and reading material available, with attentive staff on hand should you have any questions.
I can see reduction of hair on my face only with one treatment I looking forward to finish my treatment for best result😊
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.
