Your skin concerns treated rapidly
Skin concerns can quickly knock your self-confidence and even cause embarrassment, especially when they affect your face, such as acne, rashes, or other ‘lumps and bumps’.
Symptoms and conditions affecting your skin will need expert care from dermatologists, who specialise in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of conditions affecting the skin, hair, and nails. By providing a rapid, accurate diagnosis as well as appropriate management, your dermatologist will help you keep your symptoms under control going forward.
For any concerns about visible rashes, lesions or other skin conditions, you’ll want to see one of our experienced dermatologists at BMI The Chaucer, where they can offer you a rapid assessment and timely treatment.
At BMI The Chaucer, our Consultant Dermatologists treat the whole range of skin conditions. Whether you have a constant, itchy rash, or you’re concerned about a change in size, shape, or colour of a mole, why not book an appointment with us? Consultant-led private appointments for dermatological conditions are available at your convenience for adults based in North-East Kent, Sussex, and the surrounding areas.
Our dermatologists can also investigate and treat:
With a dedicated on-site pharmacy available for our patients, any topical creams or ointments for your skin concerns can be picked up during your visit free of hassle, saving you unnecessary trips elsewhere.
Whatever skin concerns you may have, our dermatologists at The Chaucer can see you for a rapid assessment and accurate diagnosis. Any necessary treatment can then be arranged promptly, making BMI The Chaucer the best choice for reliable, expert skin treatment.
BMI The Chaucer also features consultants with experience in Mohs surgery; a specialised procedure to tackle skin cancers including:
This involves removal of cancerous lumps or skin lesions, and when successful also decreases the chance of skin cancer returning. Each layer of cancerous tissue is removed in stages using a scalpel, reviewed under a microscope to ensure no cancerous tissue is left behind. This highly effective form of specialised surgery can be offered on a day case basis, and your consultant will advise you if you are suitable for this treatment.
Following this, your consultant will normally perform a physical examination of the affected area to assess any skin lesions or rashes you may have mentioned.
Blood tests and skin swabs may be needed, and can be arranged accordingly. Allergy testing may be undertaken which help highlight the specific substances that may trigger an allergic reaction.
An explanation of any appropriate investigations will then be given to you, outlining why they are needed and what they may diagnose. Sometimes a diagnosis will already be evident, in which case your consultant may offer you options for a potential treatment plan, such as a prescription to help manage your condition.
A biopsy may be required, and this would be arranged for a later visit, where a small sample of tissue will be taken and sent away to the laboratory for analysis, allowing diagnosis of the specific skin complaint or cancer.
Once all results are back, your consultant will offer an explanation of your condition and talk to you about treatment options. Treatments may include medication, watchful waiting, using topical creams or ointments, or a surgical procedure.
Follow-up appointments with your consultant may be arranged as needed, helping to ensure your skin condition continues to be well managed. If you experience a flare-up of symptoms, or if you have any questions or concerns at any time, you can quickly and easily arrange a time to see your consultant again for help and advice.
