Information on skin surgeries and procedures at Oxona, from our team of dermatology specialists

At Oxona, we never presume or assume what a patient knows or doesn’t know. Even before you book your first appointment, we work hard to make you feel well-informed and assured about making a decision to come to Oxona. We try to make our clinics as relaxed as possible because we know that it can be an anxious experience to discuss your health – and we want you to feel at ease.

We hope that through this support, welcoming atmosphere and understanding team throughout the appointment and the pre-procedure stages, that on the day of your operation, you will feel comfortable with the clinic and our staff.

When it comes to aftercare, we will make sure you understand what happens immediately after your procedure (ie can you drive, go back to work, etc?), any follow up appointments and looking after yourself during recovery.

What our patients think

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.

If you are concerned about any skin problems do not hesitate to contact Oxona. Their attitude is so refreshing. Ask any question however petty you might think it is and receive a helpful and caring response. I shall become a regular annual visitor to the Didcot Centre.

- Hilary, Didcot

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 (sorry I can’t remember the name) 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.

Jane, Didcot

I saw Dr Sharief to have a mole removed from my face. It was very straightforward to arrange and the procedure was quick and painless. I was given excellent advice about aftercare and a week later the area has healed beautifully. I am so pleased to have had it done.

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.
