If you’ve ever had a tattoo you now regret, you’re certainly not alone. According to numerous surveys, approximately a third of people who have had a tattoo go on to regret it at some point. Perhaps you had the name of an ex-partner written on your arm at a moment when it felt like you’d be together forever? Or, perhaps your design depicts a former club of which you once a member, or interest that now feels dated.
You wouldn’t believe the amount of hasty, spontaneous tattoos we see, all of which represented something meaningful at the time of their application, but may have taken just minutes for the wearer to realise that their embarrassing ink is permanent!
There’s a chance you might experience the odd single thread vein in your late thirties, or early forties, particularly if you drink a lot of alcohol, or sunbathe excessively. However, it’s when you reach your late forties and early fifties that thread veins have a tendency to proliferate. These spidery red veins, close to the surface of your skin, affect men and women.
As well as being unsightly, they can also be a tell-tale sign of how old you are, given that they are so frequently an age-related skin condition. It is logical then, that removing thread veins will make you look younger than your years. How many of them you have is often related to your genetics, but luckily our cutting edge thread vein removal techniques will rid you of each of them, one by one.
Summer is a time for holidays, sun and making memories with our loved ones. It’s also a time where we particularly strive to look our best, but when you feel insecure about wrinkles, lines or lack-lustre skin, it can stop you from feeling your most confident.

If you’re reading this, you’ve probably just discovered your first facial thread vein and you’re wondering if the expert team here at our North London clinic can help? We can! Facial thread veins appear as tiny red streaks on the face, which are bright enough to resist being covered by subtle makeup and prominent enough to annoy us when we look in the mirror. We can remove them by exposing them to a laser, which will heat them out of existence.
Rosacea sounds like a harmless enough condition to those not familiar with it. So perhaps you eat something that triggers the condition and you blush? What’s the big deal – it goes away again. So perhaps you have a red rash on your skin after a hot shower or walk in the freezing wind? It only lasts a few minutes, can it really be that bad? Yes, it can be! For those who suffer from it, it can be deeply unsettling and upsetting.
From Dermatological Surgery, March 2016:
Enlarged pores is a common cosmetic problem affecting the face of male and female individuals. Potential factors that contribute to enlarged skin pores include excessive sebum, decreased elasticity around pores, and increased hair follicle volume.
Because various factors cause enlarged facial pores, it is important to identify the underlying causes to be able to select the appropriate treatment.
Treatment options include topical and oral treatments to reduce sebum production, light and laser treatments targeting sebaceous glands or hair follicles and intradermal botulinum toxin injections.

WASHINGTON, DC — An investigational anticholinergic topical gel is safe and effective for the treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis, according to results from a phase 2b study.
Sofpironium bromide (BBI-4000, Brickell Biotech) is one of several topical products currently being investigated in clinical trials, said David Pariser, MD, professor of dermatology at the Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk, who is founding president of the International Hyperhidrosis Society.
While everybody loves things that smell nice there’s good reason to avoid fragrance and perfumes in your skin care and makeup – especially if you have sensitive skin or conditions such as rosacea, eczema and acne.
Whether from synthetic or natural origin (including essential oils such as lavender and citrus ingredients too) fragrance is a skin irritant. They are sensitising and the most common cause of allergic reactions. Irritation and inflammation inhibit skins ability to heal and encourage collagen to break down leading to redness, rashes, wrinkles and seriously unhappy skin.
The effects are cumulative so may not show on the surface straight after applying if you have normal skin. However skin that’s already compromised by conditions like rosacea or sensitive post laser treatments, fragrance is bad news.
High concentrations of fragrance are now the norm in most skincare and many makeup products. So it can take quite a bit of time, research and reading labels to discover which ones are truly free from fragrance. Luckily we’ve done the hard work for you and recommend these brands to get you started.
These brand products are all fragrance free:
These brands include mostly fragrance free products but not all so check the labels:

Our skin is the largest organ of the human body but it can also be one of the most neglected or vulnerable to damage. As well as being affected by genetics, your skin is prey to your lifestyle, environment, hormones, diet, age, and much more. This unique combination of factors means that you need a unique approach to finding the best skin treatments.
One of the reasons that The Private Skin Laser Clinic is in demand is that we’re based in the Dermatology department of the Royal Free Hospital in North London and staffed by a team of consultant dermatologists and laser clinicians. This enables us to combine a medical and cosmetic approach to the skin.
The launch of the all-new The Private Skin Laser Clinic website marks a new chapter for our clinic. Don’t worry, we’re staying true to the ethos our patients know and trust and we are as committed as ever to helping patients smile with confidence, and to providing an environment where the emphasis is on your comfort and wellbeing. The new website gives us a fantastic tool to showcase some of our many success stories, and to better communicate with prospective and existing patients.
