Hardwick Clinic a doctor led clinic which specialises is cosmetic and skin treatment.
We combine both knowledge and practice of clinical and cosmetic medicine. This allows our patients to have access to both prescription medication and cosmetic treatments that are not available on the NHS. All our treatments are evidence based, supported by clinical research and most importantly safe.
Below is a list of the most common conditions that we treat as part of the cosmetic dermatology repertoire at the clinic. This is not a full list, we only provide examples of the most common treatment options. It is also advisable to contact your GP about your skin condition as you may be able to receive treatment on the NHS. At times we are also required to refer you to other skin specialists if the treatment that you require is not available at our clinic.
Rosacea is a long-term skin condition mainly affecting the centre of the face often starting between the age of 30-60 years old but can affect anyone.
There are several types of rosacea exist and they respond to different treatments. Some people have more than one type of the condition.
It is not fully understood what causes rosacea however certain triggers are known to make the condition worse, for example sunlight, spicy food, alcohol, exercise, hot drinks and some types of makeup.
At Hardwick Clinic we are able to assess the skin and advise on the treatment options which may be most suitable for certain types of rosacea.
The treatment options may include:
Results from the chronic dilatation of the capillaries.
If they are localised they are called spider veins
Telangiectasia can be caused by rosacea, chronic sun exposure, prolonged use of steroids or can be a hereditary condition.
At Hardwick Clinic we try to establish the cause and then to treat the condition.
We are able to offer treatment for warts, skin tags, cherry angiomas and other skin lesions when appropriate.
