Most people will have a lump or a bump on their skin that has developed during a time and, although it poses no risk to their health, often would like to have it removed by a private dermatologist.
Cosmetic Dermatology is a private specialised service that’s no longer accessible through your NHS GP. For instance, mole removal (Hertfordshire) can be offered by NHS GP practices and their qualified doctors on medical grounds, however, if the removal is only for cosmetic purposes the NHS will not treat you. It is in situations like these where people require private clinics, such as our CQC registered Dermatology Clinic in Hertfordshire, for safe and effective treatment by an in house consultant dermatologist.
Our St. Albans dermatology service focuses on giving you personalised and specialist advice, improving your skin for cosmetic purposes, and empowering you to make an informed decision about your skin health and skin conditions.
Skin tags, moles, milia, warts and verruca are terms people generally use in reference to ’lumps and bumps’ and are some of the skin conditions frequently seen and treated at our dermatology clinic in St. Albans, Hertfordshire. Removal could involve minor surgery, laser treatment, cauterisation or cryotherapy. Following your initial consultation, where we discuss your skin condition, a treatment plan and the full cost of the proposed treatment will be offered to you.
An Assessment (mole checks) is with the use of a dermatoscope (magnification) and we offer quick and easy minor surgery for common skin diseases and concerns such as moles, tags and cyst removal. At our St. Albans dermatology clinic, patient safety and satisfaction are our priority, so you will also receive detailed aftercare advice, and a follow-up appointment will be scheduled as appropriate.

Very knowledgeable, warm and friendly lady – I’d highly recommend!” – Amber“Emma was very professional and put me at ease straight away and even asked if I minded her looking at a couple of other blemishes which I hadn’t gone to see her about.
