Affordable, accessible healthcare in your community

Oxona’s very first GP specialist community clinic was founded to help patients with skin condition diagnosis and treatments. It is a specialism very close to our heart, because we believe every patient deserves to be comfortable and confident in their skin.

We also believe that private dermatology treatment should be accessible to as many people as possible, without compromise on care or outcome. Our team of specialists all agree on the importance of accessible care and fair pricing. 

Professional skin care clinic

From full body mole mapping and wart removal to acne management and eczema treatment, we understand the personal impact dermatology conditions can have on a person, and the struggle some patients have to feel they are being heard and understood, so we set up our own private skin care clinic.  We don’t do up-selling of expensive lotions and potions; just evidence-based medical care by our specialist team. 

Our Specialisms

Acne treatment

We know that facial or body acne, plus the resulting blemishes and scarring can be a sensitive subject. Our team of specialist GPs listen to you and help you understand treatment and management options; we can see you quickly and get you straight onto treatment.

Treatment of eczema

No two eczema (also called dermatitis) cases are the same, and symptoms can vary between patients. That’s why we treat patients as individuals, creating bespoke care plans around you.

Mole mapping, management & removal

Full body mole mapping and monitoring for complete peace of mind.  Suspicious moles or other lesions can be removed quickly and efficiently.

Treatment of cysts

Sebaceous cysts are common but harmless. We recommend removal of unsightly, uncomfortable or infected cysts at one of our clinics with our experienced doctors.

Treatment of warts and verrucas

We can treat warts and verrucas these with liquid nitrogen. This freezes them to a very low temperature and allows them to easily fall off. For the best possible result, we recommend combining this technique with an at home treatment using salicylic acid. It can take up to two or three sessions of liquid nitrogen to fully remove most warts and verrucas.

Treatment of keloids scars

Keloid scars can’t be removed completely, but there are several ways to improve their appearance. Oxona’s specialists offer consultation and a range of therapies, helping you choose the right path for you.

Treatment of skin tags

These common and some-what annoying tags can easily be removed by Oxona doctors using a freezing techniques or cautery. We can arrange to remove multiple tags in one session if needed.

Treatment of seborrhoeic keratosis

These harmless growths that we get with age can easily be removed for an improved cosmetic result. 

Treatment of basal cell carcinoma

This common skin cancer is slow growing and can be easily be removed by one of our experts. Unfortunately, there are some rare subtypes (or particularly complex ones near the nose mouth or eye) that we cannot remove at Oxona, but instead we can refer you to an NHS consultant dermatologist or a private clinician who specialise in these difficult areas.

Treatment of cherry angiomas

These are bright red harmless growths that usually appear with age. They are easily removed by our doctors with a cautery technique.

Treatment of malignant melanoma

Melanomas are becoming more common in the UK as we spend more time in the sun. If we spot a melanoma during your consultation we can refer you immediately to an NHS consultant and you will be seen within 2 weeks for a formal diagnosis and surgery. If you wish to be seen privately, we can also refer you to a private consultant.

Treatment of lipomas

Lipomas are rarely a cause for concern, although it is important to have them checked out. We offer surgical removal procedures under local anaesthetic.

Treatment of seborrhoeic dermatitis

Seborrhoeic Dermatitis can cause dandruff in the hairline as well redness and flakiness usually on the T-zone of the face. This common condition can easily be treated by our Oxona doctors.

Treatment of rosacea

Rosacea is commonly under diagnosed and under treated. We will ensure that you get the expert treatment plan that you deserve. 

Treatment of fungal nail infection

This is common in the adult population and can cause embarrassment as well as discomfort.  There are effective treatments but you do have to be patient as it can take several months of treatment to get rid of it.

Other skin conditions

Our Dermatology doctors don’t just treat the common skin conditions. Our expertise means that we can diagnose and treat uncommon and rare conditions as well.

What our patients think

From my initial phone call to Oxona Healthcare to my appointment to get treated today, service has been great! Kellie was really friendly and helpful on arrival and Dr Angela Anderson explained everything in detail and carried out the procedure in a reassuring and professional manner. I would highly recommend Oxona Healthcare.

- Sue, St Albans

I had a sebaceous cyst removed from my neck. Dr Joshi and Jasmine were professional, efficient and friendly throughout and I felt in very safe hands. Very pleased with the outcome and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend for any similar procedure.

- Anne, Oxford

I couldn’t recommend Oxona more. After being frustrated by NHS wait times, I contacted Oxona and they couldn’t have been more helpful. They did everything they could to help fit me before I went on holiday. The service was 5 star, Dr Badiani and Kelly were excellent and took care to ensure the best results for me. The aftercare was also excellent and I am extremely happy with the results. The St Albans practice was lovely and I felt very comfortable there. The service was worth every penny and I wouldn’t hesitate contacting them in the future.

Grace, St Albans

It took me quite a long time to find somewhere to have my cyst removed and after a little bit of googling and a personal recommendation I picked Oxona Healthcare. I must say it was a great choice.

Both Dr Rai and the nurse [Alison] were so lovely. All the visits were very relaxed and I felt like being cared for very well. Having the cyst removed wasn’t the loveliest experience in the world but it didn’t take long and it was all done. It’s been 2 weeks now and I can’t wait for my scab to fall off so I can finally see the results.

I will definitely come back If I decide to have anything else checked or removed and I would like to recommend Oxona Healthcare to anybody who is trying to decide what clinic to pick.

Frequently asked questions

Can I claim for my appointment on insurance?

You need to speak to your insurer prior to your appointment. Some insurers will reimburse you for the appointment, but you will need to present any documentation at the time of your appointment for the doctor to sign. Please note that all our doctors are registered with the GMC on the GP register not the consultant register. Please ensure you make this clear to your insurers at the outset.

Why is cyst removal more expensive than mole or blemish removal?

Cyst removal can be more complex as usually they are stuck down to underlying tissue. The cyst has to be teased away very carefully to ensure the entire cyst is removed and so that you get the best possible cosmetic result.

Do you treat children under the age of 18?

Yes, we can treat under 18s at both our clinics. However, for more invasive procedures or those requiring a certain level of pain tolerance, such as verruca freezing, we would recommend only over 10s.
