About The Harley Street Dermatology Clinic

The award-winning Harley Street Dermatology Clinic (HSDC) is experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of skin, hair and scalp conditions and diseases such as infections, allergies, sun damage, moles, genital conditions (both men and women) as well as cosmetic conditions. The HSDC consultants also have an a special interest in the treatment of skin cancers.

Skin specialists

Consultant dermatologists spend their professional lives exclusively treating skin disease. This gives them the highest level of expertise and experience in the field of dermatology.

The Skin Specialists at the HSDC are very aware how debilitating and distressing skin diseases can be, and of the negative impact they can have on a patient's life.  However, patient quality of life can be greatly improved by seeking an early diagnosis and treatment by one of their highly experienced consultants.   

At The HSDC, all specialists are UK-trained and highly qualified consultant dermatologists.  They have obtained membership of the Royal College of Physicians and a Certificate of Completion of Specialist Training in Dermatology. They are all members of the British Association of Dermatologists, the Royal Society of Medicine and the General Medical Council and have a licence to practice medicine.

All the clinic’s consultants are trained in paediatric dermatology (skin disease in children) and about a quarter of their work is with children.

Skin treatments

The Harley Street Dermatology Clinic offers a comprehensive range of skin treatments, including:

Mole checking

The purpose of seeing an expert in moles and skin cancer is to identify which moles are benign, which are ‘atypical’ and which might have already become cancerous.


Botox can be administered with excellent results for excess sweating (hyperhidrosis) as well as to combat the effects of ageing and sun-damage.

Skin surgery

The dermatologists at the HSDC can improve the cosmetic appearance of moles, freckles, sun-spots, warts, skin tags and many more lesions.

  • Skin biopsy – to help establish a diagnosis in more complex cases
  • Excision – removal of cancers or benign growths 
  • Cosmetic– removal of benign growths or moles for relief of symptoms (eg itching) or cosmetic improvement  


This involves using a very fine jet of super-cold liquid nitrogen to destroy certain lesions such as warts, skin tags or sun damage. 

Steroid injections

Injecting cortisone directly into areas of inflammation is an excellent way to rapidly reduce redness and swelling, such as in the treatment of spots, cysts, boils and keloid scars.
