Expert treatment for a range of skin disorders for people of all ages
At Circle Health Group, we offer private dermatology consultations with no waiting lists, and you'll often find an appointment available within 48 hours. Call us or book online to arrange your initial consultation with a specialist of your choice at whichever of our private hospitals best suits you.
We specialise in bespoke treatment plans, meaning every person we see is treated as an individual, and the best course of action is chosen based on your personal circumstances. Once you and your consultant have decided on the best choice for you, we can get you booked in for treatment without delay, at a time and date that works with your schedule.
We're an award-winning hospital group with a wealth of experience in dermatology, and we work with some of the leading skin specialists in the UK. Whether your skin concern is a medical or a cosmetic issue, we're here to help you find the best solution for you.
Dermatology covers multiple areas including cosmetic treatments, medical dermatology, skin surgery and skin cancer management. We are proud to facilitate specialist dermatologists who can help assess your symptoms and maintain your skin health.
There are many reasons why people seek out a private skin specialist, but some of the most common are that they don't want to wait a long time for treatment, or that they are not able to get a certain treatment on the NHS or via their private medical insurance.
Not all skin diseases are serious, however even the mildest of dermatological complaints can have a significant impact on your life, causing discomfort, making you feel self-conscious or affecting your confidence. Our experienced dermatologists understand how deeply we can be affected by problems with our skin and are here to help you feel better again.
If you are paying for your own treatment, you can take advantage of our flexible payment options, which allow you to spread the cost of treatment over a fixed period. Many people find the monthly payments more affordable.
If you want to use your insurance to pay, speak directly to your provider to see if the treatment you need is covered by your policy. We work with all major insurers, however some treatments are considered cosmetic and might not be covered by your policy.
Some of the most common skin conditions our dermatologists see include:
If you have multiple painful pustules, nodules or cysts, you may have severe acne. Severe acne is treated through antibiotic tablets and topical treatments. UVB narrowband phototherapy can also help treat acne.
Excess body hair can wreak havoc on your self-esteem and confidence. The most common cause of excessive hair growth in women (also known as hirsutism) is polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Laser hair removal can be used to treat unwanted body and facial hair.
Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and basal cell carcinoma (BCC) are the two most common forms of skin cancer. Squamous cell carcinoma can look like a firm pink lump on your skin with a crusted surface. But basal cell carcinoma can present as a red scaly patch, or a shiny pink or pearly-white lump.
The third most common type of skin cancer is melanoma, the typical sign of which is the appearance of a new mole or a change to the appearance of an existing mole. This can be anywhere on the body, but is most often found upon the back, legs, arms and face.
Skin lesions includes moles, skin tags, epidermoid cysts (a fluid-filled lump) and lipomata (non-cancerous fatty tissue found under your skin). Skin lesion removal is a procedure that can surgically remove these.
Common dermatological conditions that can be treated with medications include rosacea, acne, eczema and psoriasis.
UVB narrowband phototherapy is a form of light therapy, that involves exposing your skin to ultraviolet B (UVB) light. UVB light is naturally present in sunlight and can be an effective treatment for skin conditions such as acne, eczema, psoriasis and vitiligo.
This is a treatment used by men and women to remove unwanted facial and body hair. Your dermatologist will pass a laser through the affected area to kill unwanted hair and reduce further growth. However, laser hair removal is not a permanent hair removal solution, and you may need regular sessions to prevent regrowth.
Skin patch testing is a method of detecting an allergy to a substance that has come into contact with your skin. These substances may be found at work, at home or in your leisure activities. Examples include perfume, jewellery, clothing, cosmetics, medicines, chemicals or metals. Skin patch testing only identifies the substance that affects you when it is in contact with your skin. Any dietary or inhaled allergens are not detected by a skin patch test
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is used to treat certain forms of skin cancer. PDT involves applying a light-sensitising cream to the affected area of your skin. After your cells have absorbed this cream, your dermatologist will shine red light emitting diodes on the targeted area to activate it. This destroys cancerous skin cells.
To remove an epidermoid cyst, your surgeon will make an elliptical (oval) cut over the cyst and then remove it. This process is also carried out to remove moles. However, your surgeon will make a straight cut into your skin to remove a lipoma.
