Want Super Skin then Sk:n is the place to be!

AdvantagesThe effects were amazing, skin looked smooth and clear afterwards, Non invasive

DisadvantagesQuite expensive, effects on last for so long

"...company caught my eye - Sk:n Clinics.

Sk:n Clinic: Laser hair removal

AdvantagesClean, friendly staff, information given, professionalism

DisadvantagesPrice, Pressure to buy products

"...no hair growth. I read about sk:n on the ciao reviews website and was quite concerned with some peoples experiences but I had already booked my appointment so thought I'd head along. Sk:n has been around for apparently 25 plus years but I had never heard of them before. The clinic I went to was in Chelmsford, Essex as it was the closest but I know there are some in London and 1 in Norwich as well as others doted around the country. ~~The ..." Read review

My experience to share.

AdvantagesSwift payment procedure. Package deals. Convenient locations.

DisadvantagesIneffectiveness. False promises. Hard-sell and marketing. Unprofessionalism. Unhygienic

"...a complaint) on the Facebook Sk:n Page for others to see and make a decision. It is right that they know the truth as I wish I had before. Now I know why there are no negative or barely any reviews on the Sk:n Page on Facebook - They delete them for marketing purposes. This has led me to search for other sites that allow people to place a review, fairly, honestly, and rightly so. In areas, I see no difference to prior the treatment, and in some areas, ..."

Go at your own risk! Acid dripped into eye

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesAcid in eye, nurse tried to complete treatment before tending to my eye.

"...went to the East Finchley sk:n clinic expecting great results as I suffer from acne scarring. Before attending my appointment, I was sent an information pack about the clinic and procedures that they do. The information was well presented and it made me feel that it was worth paying more to get treatments through the clinic as there are only doctors or nurses who undertook the treatments. The first consultation went well and the nurse advised ..." Read review

Rude Receptionists, apalling customer service

AdvantagesFreidnly and professional therapists (if you are lucky)

DisadvantagesAweful, inconsistent customer service and experience, robots for receptionists

"...I have been going to Sk:n for some time now, first at Harley Street branch and now the Covent Garden branch. This review is purely MY personal experiences and opinions. At Harley Street I did Microdermabrasion and laser hair removal at the Covent Garden branch. The experience started off not very pleasantly at Harley Street, as the girl (my "therapist") was nice enough to speak to, however as we began my treatment she brutally stripped my skin off, ..."

Overall a very good service

AdvantagesGreat clinicians, fantastic rewards system

Disadvantagesmanaging appointments is a bit hit and miss

"I joined the Sk:n Clinic in Victoria around July last year when my skin was at it's worse. I had read up on lots of treatments and decided that microdermabrasion was going to save my life! I was wrong. But the clinician did lead me to glycolic peels which have! Of course this isn't a review about singular treatments but the clinics as a whole so i won't go into the treatments. After nearly a year I have to say that I am quite impressed with the ..." Read review

Rubbish for Asian skin type

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesLots! It doesn't work and very expensive

"I have had over 15 facial laser hair removal treatments with Skin clinic and they do not work on Asian skin types. They try to sell sell sell. It is not worth a penny if you have Asian skin like mine. They also vary prices dpending on what time of day you call them or who you speak to. The Admin is atrocious. If you miss an appointment even if you are extremely unwell to go, they still charge you. They are horrible like that. I would not bother with ..." Read review

Waste of money

Advantagesnone

Disadvantagesdidn't work and cost a lot of money

"I went to Sk:n clinic to have a small red spot between my nostrils removed as it sometimes bled and it didn't look very good. I was led into a small overheated room, perched on a stool in the corner, with a loud machine whilst the nurse quickly ran over some questions, took a quick look at the area and suggested they do a test patch to see if the laser treatment would work (this was the consultation) - maybe 5minutes. I was then charged £50 (the ..." Read review

Good treatment but don't go to the London Wall branch!

AdvantagesFriendly, helpful treatment staff

DisadvantagesUnfriendly, unhelpful front desk staff

"...really good reviews about the Sk:n clinic so booked a consultation at my local clinic on London Wall. In my opinion, the initial consultation was very rushed - I know they only allocate 15 minute slots but they need to appreciate that the treatment is a big step for people and there are lots of questions to be asked. I also felt under pressure to sign up and wasn't even asked if I had any questions (it was assumed that I wanted to sign up). As I ..." Read review

I was running and not looking back

Advantagesno advantages here

Disadvantagesexpensive, unprofessional, pushy approach

"I've been going to one of their London branches for a while for laser hair removal. This time I chose a closer branch for microdermabrasion. To start with, the nurse refused to do it on me as, according to her, this was not what I needed. She recommended a peel (was it because peel cost £25 more?) She asked me about my skin concerns and was not listening to my story because after I was finished she started saying something totally irrelevant to what ..." Read review

Sk:n Clinic, Bristol

Advantagesit has a central location, easy reach

Disadvantagesstaff is not friendly, treatments are too costly

"I have been to this place for 3 times, the last being today. I had an appointment at 6pm and they made me wait for 25 MINUTES! Considering that my treatment only lasts for 15 minutes, this is an unacceptable waiting time. On top of all that, they have refused to give my student discount. OK, I know that they need to see my student card (I forgot it at home today) but this was not the first time I was going there and they knew that I was a student ..." Read review

Do not use these clinics!

Advantagesnone

Disadvantageseverything

"Avoid the Norwich clinic and their new manager Vicky! She will take your money and then talk about you behind your back! She will laugh at your skin complaints and discuss your problems with other staff members! What happened to the lovely staff that used to work there? Donna? Lucy? Kirsty? Where did you go? :( My wife has visited on several occasions and previously loved going. She enjoyed the warm welcome and friendly atmosphere. Now the place ..." Read review

Waste of money

AdvantagesThe clinic is clean, well located and staff are nice

DisadvantagesThe treatment offered wasnt satisfying at all

"I went to sk:n clinics in Sheffield to have laser treatment in my face. The people there was really nice, although they always wanted to sell you any kind of products. I did 4 laser sessions, with any or little result seen. I wasnt very surprised as they told me I wouldnt be able to see bigger results until more sessions were done. After a friend of mine recommended me her dermatologist ( a real doctor who makes laser treatment ), I went there to ..." Read review

Be clear what you want- they work on commission!

Advantagesnone

DisadvantagesUnnecessary treatments, expense, pressure to buy and have more treatments

"I went to the Newcastle sk:n and knew exactly what I wanted and thought I needed. The doctor started by asking me what I wanted, which he agreed however he noticed other problems with my face that could be rectified. By the time he had finished my bill had gone from £500 to £1200 but not to worry you could get credit. He then convinced me to buy some cream which cost £49, at the till the staff debated over who got the commission!! They ..." Read review

NOT HAPPY - TERRIBLE COMPANY! AVOID!!!!

AdvantagesFancy website and marketing techniques

DisadvantagesTerrible waiting times, All they care about is making as much money from you as they can

"I went to the "sk:n" clinic in Sutton, located at the back of Sutton Hospital. I had paid £50 deposit after I had booked a consultation to see a doctor about Tattoo/Birthmark removal. I had high expectations seeing as though the company quickly rang me back after requesting a call back from their website. I was assured this was a reputable and good company to consult with after receiving letters to confirm my consultation appointments and a booklet ..." Read review
