Our skin is vitally important to our well-being. It has lots of different functions apart from being the visible outer layer of our body which we would all prefer to be smooth, even and soft.
The skin acts as a barrier, protecting the body from harmful things such as changes in temperature, the Sun's rays , moisture as well as germs and toxic substances. It also plays a vital role in regulating your body temperature.
At My Specialist GP we have a range of treatments and care that can help you achieve and maintain your skin's health.
Skin check - £150
with Dr Mariette Grant including up to 2 moles checked with Dermatoscope.
Liquid Nitrogen Cryogenic Gun - this treatment is very effective in removing warts, verrucas and seborrhoeic warts. The liquid nitrogen is applied to the skin in a fine 'jet' which allows precision targeting of areas. The nitrogen is
at -195 degrees which is optimal for successful treatment.
The number of treatments required varies depending on the number of areas to treat, the size, position and how well it responds. Sometimes 1 treatment is sufficient, sometimes 3 are required.
The doctor will advise you at the time as to how many treatments to expect. The skin then grows clean, healthy cells over the treatment site restoring your skin. Treatment can safely be applied to any area of the body and to children and adults alike.
One treatment costs £65, package of 3 £150 (including doctor time). The treatment itself takes minutes and your appointment with us would be for 15 minutes.
Various prescription based treatments to improve conditions such as Psoriasis and Eczema. Because we are a Private GP, we are able to prescribe a much wider range of possible treatments that are perhaps more individually suited to you.
We can treat Acne with both topical and prescription treatments. Acne is a disorder that affects the skin's oil glands and hair follicles. The small holes in your skin (pores) connect to oil glands under the skin via a canal called a follicle. Within the follicles, oil carries dead skin cells to the surface of the skin. A thin hair also grows through the follicle and out to the skin. Sometimes the hair, sebum and skin cells clump together into a plug.
The bacteria in the plug cause swelling. Then when the plug starts to break down, a pimple grows.
Acne is not usually a serious health threat but it can cause social embarrassment,
soreness and can cause permanent scars.
Rosacea is a very common skin disease that affects people over the age of 30. It causes redness on your nose, cheeks, chin, and forehead. Some people get little bumps and pimples on the red parts of their faces. Rosacea can also cause burning and soreness in your eyes. Gaining control of this disfiguring condition can require long term treatment and subtle balancing of medications with which our caring Doctors can help you.
