Refusal of treatments

There are several reasons that a doctor may consider that a treatment is not a suitable option for an individual and Cosmedics has a strict patient selection criteria to ensure patients are medically fit to undergo a particular treatment. It is therefore possible that we advise, in your best medical interests, that surgery or treatment is not appropriate. We will also not proceed with a procedure if we feel that your expectations exceed the results achievable from such surgery.

 

Under 18s policy

Please note that we do not provide treatments for any teenagers or children under 18 years of age and we will decline treatment even if a parent books an appointment under their name for a child. We recommend you see your GP for any treatment requests for under 18s.

 

Disclaimer (skin lesion treatment and removal)

Our aim is to provide a first class service however we cannot guarantee that treatment is possible until the skin lesion mole or cyst or reason for your seeking treatment has been seen by our doctor; whose individual advice takes precedence over any previous information given.

Only once you have been assessed can we give you a full recommendation on what is your best treatment option. Occasionally that may mean a referral to another specialist whether it by for a different type of laser or for the complexity of the concern.

 

Histology – Testing of moles / skin lesions

Moles, cysts, skin tags, warts and other blemishes or lesions

At Cosmedics any mole/skin lesion that is removed is sent for histological analysis or testing to ensure there are no early changes or any abnormalities.

This is routine practice across all medical services for patient safety as recommended by NICE, GMC and Indemnity organisations.

This testing is carried out at another facility that is a specialist additional service. The price of this service is charged at the lowest rate possible, as we simply pass the costs onto our patients. Unless specified otherwise by the doctor ALL mole or skin lesions that are removed will incur the histology cost as stated on our price list and treatment pages.

The results and a letter are sent to patients via encrypted email about 7-10 days later.

 

Treatment availability

Please note, certain treatments are only available in selected locations.

Our booking team will be able to advise on this fully and will be able to advise on the latest availability information.
