sk:n Manchester part of sk:n clinics

sk:n is the country's leading skin clinic offering highly medically trained staff and the most regulated treatment approach in a meticulously clinical environment - nationwide. No one offers more specialised skin treatments - over 250, from mole excisions to anti-ageing injectables, tattoo removals to facial resurfacing - or uses more advanced technology to do so.

sk:n's heritage goes back over 20 year, to when it was founded in 1990 in Leeds and Harrogate within their NHS hospitals. sk:n's initial specialism was in laser hair removal and the company invested in the highest grade lasers on the market, operated in partnership with the NHS. Before long however, sk:n doctors were treating NHS patients for broader dermatological needs and an ongoing partnership emerged.

A stand-alone clinic was opened in Birmingham City Hospital in 1993, followed by a private clinic on Harley Street in the same year.

sk:n now have an network of nationwide clinics from Aberdeen to Portsmouth, with opening hours up to 9pm and are proud to be home to more leading consultant dermatologists, doctors, plastic surgeons, nurses or therapists than any other dermatology service provider.

All sk:n's laser technicians have the longest training in the industry and like all treaters in the organisation, operate according to the Medical Standard's Team approved medical protocols. There is a Medical Director in every clinic and all medical consumables used are of the highest grade available.

With extremely high customer loyalty and satisfaction scores, sk:n looks forward to offering even more clients the most effective, yet safe treatments on the market, as The Nation’s Skin Clinic.

Really inexperienced staff, they did 8 tattoo removals for me at an extortionate cost & managed to scar me for the pleasure! Terrible experience, you'd be better off going somewhere cheaper as I've been to many since that were much cheaper & they didn't scar me.

I would never ever go back to these girls again. It is clear that they are too young and inexperienced and do not know what they are doing! After 3 treatments of sivere blistering I couldn't understand why part of my tattoo hadn't lightend like the rest so I went to a different clinc for a second opinion to be told they were using the wrong colour laser on my tattoo and that's why it had no effect! Also they were using the wrong frequency on the treatment and that's why the blistering was so severe!

I am appalled by the service I received at the Manchester Skin Clinic. I have had acne for 10 years and saw the Skin Clinic as my last opportunity so was willing to pay a high amount of money to help clear my skin once and for all. Upon my initial consultation I was advised to have 6 salicylic acid peels which cost £406.
My skin initially got worse from the salicylic acid peel which I put down to the process bringing out all of my impurities in order to clear my skin completely. However on my third visit to the skin clinic my skin was visibly a lot worse than it had ever been before. I had severely enraged, cystic, painful red lumps all over my jaw line, necks and cheeks. As a result of this I was told by another consultants at the clinic that she would not be able to do another peel as my skin was so bad and advised me to seek medical attention from my GP. Upon visiting the GP I was told to stop the salicylic acid peels immediately and was prescribed at drug to help improve my inflamed cystic skin caused by the acid peels.
When I was first prescribed the drug by my GP I went back to the skin clinic and informed them of the medical advice I had received, to which one of the consultants informed me that if the drug prescribed by my GP worked I would be able to receive a full refund from my treatment at the skin clinic.
I have rung the Manchester clinic on five separate occasions to inquire about a refund but have been told on each occasion that they would look into my request and get back to me, which has not happened.
I believe that it is my right as a paying customer who was not happy with the results of the treatment given to me to be entitled to a full refund, which I was told I would receive if the treatment from my doctor worked.
£406 is an awful lot of money to have your skin ruined as a result and to now be treated with pure disgust. I urge anybody who is considering to have any treatments with this company not to.

Update: I have now received an apology off the Clinic Manager for the miss communication and she is sorting out my request of a refund which I am very pleased about. I have accepted the apology and am very thankful for her work on this matter.

This place and laser hair removal is a rip off and does NOT work.
This review is the most honest review I can make and the first one I have ever made because I was so disgusted with my experience here. I do not want anyone to go through the same and waste money and time.
I went for laser hair removal and firstly...it does not work! I had 4 treatments out of the 8 I was supposed to have and it made my hair growth WORSE. It became thicker and grew faster. As if this was not enough... I was going to carry on and complete the course due to already paying for it in whole but I couldn't see it through due to the unreliabilty of everything...
...3 out 4 appointments were not at the agreeed time (booked 6 weeks in advance)..they would ring me on the day saying "the doctor needs the room" and I (the customer!) had to swap times and dates around work (having just shaved the areas ready for the treatment and arranging work off!).
Cutting a long story short after finally having enough (about 24 weeks later because you have to wait 6 weeks in-between treatments!) I requested to stop treatment and receive a refund for the treatments I had not had. That was supposed to take 2-3 weeks to process. Numerous phone calls and 3 months later I made my last phone call threatening to make a formal complaint to which they rung finance up and apparently my refund was waiting and they just hadn't bothered phoning me! Luckily I will have the money in time for christmas but no thanks to them and with the added stress and worry they caused me.
To some up....
They will suck you in and you will forever be paying ridiculous amounts of money to maintain it. Try waxing or electrolysis if it is for a small area..much better value for money and actually works.
Kind regards, Reb x

I have not yet recieved the treatment as I am booked in for the new year, however the service I have recieved so far has been excellent with very accomodating staff. I have recieved a conformation letter to confirm the booking and emails of other offers they have available. I am looking forward to having the treatment and feel confident that this is a proffessional establishment.

The location is great.It is a big building shared with an eye clinic I was waiting for a few minutes but I also was filling some questionary about my health.I got my skin checked with a UV machine which showed EVERYTHING on my face, not very impressed (with my face), she explained to me the procedure and also gave me some prices for some peels a little bit dear for me but they look very professional.At the end I recieved a goody bad with a few little creams and I am still using then! Overall experience was OK!

The staff were very pleasant, surroundings clean and relaxing. Everything was explained as we went along with the treatments.
I have had micrdermabrasion, upper lip hair removal and a glycolic peel.
All treatments were very effective.
