Treatments performed by Dr Rishika Sinha
Keloids are highly visible, exaggerated scars that are particularly common in darker skin.
With over 35 years of Harley Street medical excellence behind us, we are one of the UK’s leading clinics for dermatology & skin conditions, non-invasive cosmetic, anti ageing and aesthetic treatments.
Psoriasis is most common on the elbows, knees, scalp and lower back, but it can appear anywhere on the body.
Mole Checks & Removal
Some people find themselves unhappy with safe moles, either aesthetically or from them catching on clothing.
A biopsy is commonly done if you have a lump or swelling of a part of the body where there is no apparent cause.
Melasma is a skin condition that causes brown spots to appear on the face, and, though it’s not dangerous, it can be very distressing and can seriously affect self confidence.
Scars caused by surgery or traumatic injury are usually permanent and can cause a great deal of embarrassment, with some people going to great lengths to cover them up.
Eczema also known as dermatitis, is a common condition that can improve over time with the right treatment, it mainly affects children, but can also affect adults.
Skin Tags, Warts & Verrucas
Skin tags, warts and verrucas are a highly common occurrence, but often an unwanted one.
Our leading UK dermatologists target the root cause of the bacteria, the underlying factor behind problem acne, and create bespoke plans for all skin types.
