Our Consultant Dermatologists based in Kensington West London are fully trained to analyse your skin, hair and nails, identify potential problems and diagnose a multitude of conditions that range from minor to life threatening. The child with eczema. Sun damaged skin. The older person with shingles. From birthmarks to skin cancer (melanoma) and fungal infections to cold sores.
Your skin is the largest organ of your body, containing 45 miles of nerves and performing a huge range of actions that help your body function properly.
It is waterproof yet amazingly completely renews itself every few weeks. It protects your body from infection and harmful sun rays, regulates your body temperature, provides sensory information about your surroundings through millions of nerve receptors in it and helps make Vitamin D - crucial for healthy bones.
Age plays an important part. Challenges to your skin in your 20s and 30s will be different to the challenges you may face in your 50s and 60s. Many factors come into play including family history, hormones, exposure to sun and any other simultaneous illnesses.
Looking after your skin is therefore really important, as is making sure you get the right advice and treatment when problems arise. Whether problems such as acne, rashes, psoriasis, sun damage or moles need to be dealt with, or you want to help your skin look its best, the choice of Clinician is vitally important. With the large number of new treatments to improve skin health and appearance, it can be difficult to make the right choice. The Medical Chambers Kensington can help you make that choice. We can help whether you are referred by your GP or want rapid access to a dermatologist.
