Please note that not all skin lesions can be succesfully removed. We will recommend the best method for treatment during the consultation phase. Some blemishes may require a written GP letter of consent.

How many treatments are needed?

We recommend that a month after treatment, a follow up consultation is arranged to assess the skin, ensure you are completely happy and take an after photograph if appropriate to compare.

Please be aware that some blemishes may need more than one treatment

The treated blemish will not return, but others may occur depending on the root cause.

Does it hurt? Is there any downtime?

Most treatments offer instantaneous results. The length of treatment depends on the blemish, your skin specialist will advise you of this during your initial consultation, although, it’s difficult to state a definitive time.

Please note that there is a healing stage up to 4 weeks which may include scabing on the treated area. 

There can be some discomfort which is why we recommend visiting your local pharmacy and purchasing a topical anaesthetic cream such as EMLA.
