Dermatologist Kensington

Finding a dermatologist in your local area can be a challenging task, especially if you’re dealing with a skin condition that requires immediate attention. If you’re searching for a dermatologist in London, you’re in the right place. Here are my top tips for finding the Dermatologist for you.

Can a Dermatologist Help?

Skin conditions is the catch-all term used to describe everything from acne to skin cancer. Dermatologists treat these conditions and many others, including rosacea, rashes, eczema, psoriasis, and keloid scars. They also offer minor surgery including biopsies for moles and removal of cysts.

So, when do you see a Consultant Dermatologist?

There’s really no right or wrong answer. Some people book in after referrals from their GPs. Others, when they feel all other options have been exhausted. Most come straight to a specialist as their first port of call, seeking the expertise of a consultant dermatologist.

Finding the Right Dermatologist for You

Here are our 5 top tips to selecting a Dermatologist near you who fits your skin’s needs:

  1. Check out their credentials and reviews online. Ask around too – if someone you know has used a dermatologist locally, they may be able to point you in the right direction.
  2. Do your own research. Yes, it’s great when a friend makes a recommendation, but like all things with the skin – yours is unique. Give the clinic a call/drop them an email to find out if they can help your condition.
  3. Is the clinic local to you/easily accessible? Sounds simple, but if you need more than one appointment it can be useful to have a short(ish) commute to see them. If you’re seeing them once a year for your annual skin check then this may not be so important.
  4. Following on from above – when does your selected dermatologist work? Are they working privately once a month, or three times a week? A lot of private consultants only do private clinics once a week which can be tricky around your busy diary – so worth checking.
  5. Make sure they are safe and well governed. I CAN’T STRESS THIS ENOUGH. All medical dermatologists must be signed up to the CQC by law. Check it out here.

Conclusion

A dermatologist is who you need if you have any kind of skin concern. They will relieve acute skin concerns, such as itchy rashes, or acne breakouts – and give you the knowledge to keep your skin well too. Finding the right one can be transformational. It is worth following the steps above to make sure you’re happy with the doctor you have chosen.

What a lovely find No.23 Skin is, this was my first facial post lockdown and I picked the perfect place. It is in beautiful location just off High St Ken and whilst being luxurious it was also welcoming and warm. I selected the anti-aging facial and Cecilia tailored it especially to my skin concerns. She had had such a great touch and I was relaxed from the first minute. Facial included a fabulous massage and a LED light treatment (this is a must) and after 75 mins I left with glowing skin! It’s been over two weeks and my skin still looks fresh and dewy.Next appointment is with Dr Armstrong for my wrinkle treatment. Will then be Christmas party ready!read more

The team at No.23 Skin are really helpful, warm and knowledgeable. I went in for a pregnancy facial with Cecilia and she helped me with some very annoying milia that have been troubling me around my eyes for ages and nobody else would help with.I was also able to have a pregnancy safe peel which has left me with smoother skin with a more even tone. Would really recommend!read more
