Cosmedics Skin Clinics offers a range of treatments for troublesome skin conditions with our GP with specialist interest in dermatology.

The skin is the body’s largest organ and is susceptible to a range of conditions which can cause significant discomfort and irritation, as well as being potentially unsightly and embarrassing. Without treatment, there is a real risk of the condition worsening.

Proper diagnosis is the first step in the process, followed by a treatment plan. Conditions that we commonly see and treat at our Putney skin clinic include:

  • Dry, scaly skin
  • Acne including adult acne
  • Scarring
  • Pigmentation
  • Allergies and sensitivity
  • Infectious and chronic skin diseases
  • Heat rashes/prickly heat
  • General skin concerns
  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis
  • Dermatitis (including contact dermatitis)
  • Rashes and/or itching
  • Pigmentation problems/hyperpigmentation

As appropriate, our experienced doctors are able to provide private prescriptions for the most appropriate medication within a tailor-made treatment programme.

We also work with Dermatology Specialists and are happy to refer patients where required.

Treating skin conditions isn’t always quick as the issues can be complex, so it can take a long time to get them under control. That’s why we work with patients over the long term where required, in order to review and adapt treatment once it is underway.

Skin problem services are exclusively available at Cosmedics’ Putney and Harley Street skin clinics. There are no waiting lists and no need for a referral – call today.

Acne

Acne is one of the most common issues presented at our skin clinic. It is a common condition which affects up to 80% of teenagers but it is not exclusively related to the teenage years and can affect adults, some experiencing it for the first time in their 30′s, 40′s or beyond.

Acne is caused by a tendency to blocked pores where skin bacteria can cause spots and pustules which can be tender and last for months. It typically occurs on the face, chest and back and causes particular distress due to the appearance.

Most cases improve with time, however treatment options are available and in severe cases, treatment is particularly important in order to reduce the potential for permanent scarring.

Treatment Options:

Pharmacy treatments include:

  • Antiseptic creams
  • Anti-inflammatory creams
  • Antiseptic washing agents

Prescription treatments include:

  • Topical retinoids to treat blackheads
  • Topical antibiotics to tackle infection and pustules
  • Antibiotic tablets to reduce inflammation
  • Retinoid tablets to treat severe acne cysts

We may also recommend skin treatments such as peels or laser treatment, which can be a very useful complement to prescription based treatment. These are also available at our Putney skin treatment centre.

Eczema

Eczema is a very common skin condition that can affect people of all ages.

The condition is characterised by intensely itchy, red and uncomfortable areas of skin. At its worst, the surface of the skin can break down and cause weeping and bleeding. It can be triggered by all sorts of causes, including contact with skin irritants and even stress.

Treatment Options:

Pharmacy treatments include:

  • Moisturising agents in order to soothe and hydrate the skin
  • Over-the-counter and non-prescription creams designed to reduce inflammation e.g. Sudocrem

Prescription treatments include:

  • Investigations and diagnosis to help establish the cause
  • Steroid and non-steroid creams to reduce inflammation
  • Tablets in severe outbreaks

Treatments are tailor-made programmes to suit the individual’s very unique eczema presentation. The response to treatment is monitored so that the programme can be adapted as required.

I was a bit nervous before having my mole removed but Dr. Vardy was very professional and reassuring. She talked me through all the options and what to expect. The mole removal itself was so quick and painless. I’m very happy with the result.
