Sk:n clinics - any experiences?



I saw this clinic featured on teenage embarrassing problems when a poor girl was covered in body hair - I thought I was bad. But within one treatment she was so much happier - it wasnt all gone, but I believe you need a course of around 6 anyways?

Anyone used this clinic and can you confirm that the treatments do work? Id love to go wild and purchase a 6 course "whole body" package for £1,995. It would totally be worth it!? But then I want to see if one area works first before spending nearly 2 grand for it to not work!! Youd probably spend that in a couple of years on salon waxes anyway so youl be saving money in the long long run!!

Anyone had a 6 course treatment? Do you ever need to shave/wax anymore??

Look forward to any responses!!

Thanks ladies, Gem xx


Hair free since '13

Hi Gem,
I'm not sure as I haven't used them before, but I went to the new york clinic in London and they were FAB!
You don't want IPL as that isn't as effective as laser and can take more time to do and is more costly.
I had something called magma laser and it's amazing, you have it every 6 weeks or so and you can see a results quite quickly! I follow them on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/TheNewYorkLaserClinic/

Good luck and let me know how it goes!

I spent £ 2,200

My experience was bad at London Victoria clinic. You need to pay a huge deposit and some session in advance to get the discount they promoted.. After paid 2,200 (with 40% discount already ) I have just LESS hair in some parts of my legs, in upper legs I have the same but a bit thin, and in my buttocks now I have hair and I didn't. After 8 session I can say: I need to save my legs as before and the hair starting to get stronger again so I lost my money and my time.

I put a complaint but I moved to Brighton, once month ago I've been in the clinic here processing my complaint, even one nurse saw me and they say they will call me in two days. But no one did and even they don't remember already who I am and why I went for.
So my experience is ENTIRELY NEGATIVE.

No just skin clinic, ALL the clinics must do a deep exam of your body, skin /hormones type of hair before start a treatment, because after that happened to me, I noticed TOO MANY WOMEN are like me after paying thousand, some of ten even £6,000 , laser is not for everyone and if you have a strong hormones and you are 25 don't do it, because your body is changing all the time and the up and downs level of hormones won't defiantly work with laser.
But no one will explain this for you because they just think in make money.

Be careful !




I have has a similar bad experience at a Skn Clinic. I now have hair in areas I didn't have hair and the hair in originally had has gone far thicker and courser than before. I've tried to resolve it with the clinic however they want to do a trial on a different setting. After I completed that there was no difference whatsoever and they wanted me to continue doing at least 3 sessions.

I have asked for a refund however they keep saying let's do a trial. This has effected my personal life, ended a 4 year relationship and called of a wedding. Cancelled all summer holidays. I wanted to know if your situation has been resolved and if so how u went about it. Isn't there like a board or a govering body where we can out our issues forward to??


Laser hair removal

Laser hair removal with an experienced operator its completely safe and with the right company doesn't have to be too expensive for more information on the process of laser hair removal.

I had many treatments, I have been a customer at sk:n East Fincley for a number of years, but I have to admit, I found most of the staff so rude and unhelpful. Especially ' Amy Fuller'
laser treatment works on some areas, better then others, but I was unable to proceed with the course of treatment which I paid in full. because I was pregnant and told I could not have treatment, if pregnant or breastfeeding . And so I waited until I wAs able to have treatment. But I fell pregnant a further two times and was breastfeeding as well. I kept them informed of my situation from the beginning , phoning and email and I was told by them, ' it would be put on Hold', until I was free from pregnancy and breastfeeding. And left feeling reassured. But when I contacted them again they said I had never made contact and there was no record. And hence all that money I paid for a full package was taken / stolen from me. I am very upset because it was a lot of money. And I was told I could of asked for a refund from the start, which I was never told of. And would of done that. But now I can't afford more treatments I need. I have spoken to Amy fuller many times, and it is completely unfair. She keeps saying it expired 5 years ago, when it never expired, and I proved to her that I had in fact informed, but she completely ignores this. As I tried to get a hold of Rob the regional manger, but he seems to be deliberately ignoring and dosent reply to my calls or complaint. I am very upset, I need treatment and can not afford it.what ever you do, do not go to sk:n , especially in east fincley so rude and unprofessionally . They just want your money and more of it . I will contact the ombudsman about this.


Laser treatment clinic in harley street london

I'm not sure which Skn clinic you mention. But there is a clinic opposite the one in Harley Street London they are the Laser Treatment Clinic. I first visited them about 5 years ago for Laser hair removal. The service and staff here are amazing, they not only give you a professional service but are always friendly. I had fantastic results with their IPL treatment. I had my Face, Under arms, Bikini and Legs treated with them and the hairs have never grown back. And I really liked the laser therapist dealing with my treatments. She made sure on every session she gave me the best service she could possibly provide. She made me feel comfortable during my time there and due to that I believe I received very good results from my treatment. They say they have not had anyone back in 15 years that they have been running. That will do me! Great atmosphere, hygienic and up to date treatments!


My experience

I don't know about that clinic what you are talking about.
but i have consult with Premier Laser Clinic and i found them very reliable. After getting laser hair removal, you don't need to do shave/wax more.

90% of Premier Laser Clinic clients are satisfied and i am one of them.

You can also search them on google.

Don't use sk:n

I wanted to get laser treatment done as my friends had good results from their clinics. I was very wary getting this treatment done and so I went for a big clinic Sk:n thinking this would be the safest option. BIG MISTAKE. I have spent over £6000 I am completely fair skinned with dark hair and now I have more dark coarse hair on my face in placed I never even had hair before and other areas were treated and I was advised later they should have not even been treated in the first place. They just wanted me to do full body to get the maximum money out of me and never assessed what my actual needs were.
The bottom of my legs have responded OK after 12 treatments but I will still need treatments as its just patchy and they were treating me on a dark skin setting even though I am really pale so this could be why it has not worked very well. The care was sloppy and each persons that treats you says a completely different thing, they definitely do not go to the same training school. I wouldn't say don't get laser done as my friends have had great success but I would use a small company where perhaps the owner is treating you so you get one person that is treating you and actually reviewing how your treatments are going unlike sk;n who want you in and out as quickly as possible and only when you are £6000 down they tell you they wouldn't have treated half of my areas in the first place

Agreed - sk:n laser hair removal treatment did not work.


after 8 sk:n laser hair removal sessions, there was no significant reduction in body hair for me either. a complete waste of money and extremely depressing. during my initial consultation i was categorised as an ideal candidate - fair skin and dark hair. when approaching sk:n after all 8 treatments, to show the lack of results, they were very dismissive and simply stated - it does not work for everyone! .. surly a professional would have noticed my reaction after 2 or 3 sessions and advised if it was a good idea to continue. but they didn't. after my experience i would not recommend sk:n clinic for laser hair removal.

I prefer proskin

Proskin Clinis- Affordable skincare


They took £3000 of my money and results are awful!

Guys please lets get together and complain. I go to bed crying everynight because of this company which wants to make everyone feel comfortable in their skin??? i had my full body done, and the results on my buttocks is 10x worse than what it was. .I duno what to do? Im thinking to shell out more to get more work done but i dont want to pay these scum bags but i dont want to feel like this anymore. And this isnt the only part of my body that has been effected. Please if you are serious in making an official complaint contact me on huda.ahmed1@hotmail.com


Complete con ski:n hair removal.


what are they going to do to make it better?
im a doctor.
they took so much of my money
8 sessions
alot of Promises.
no results.
the don't take our complaints seriously. .
WILL spread the word never to go to SK:N


Time for investigation


I paid over £3,000 for face and body laser hair treatment packages at sk:n a few years ago. Before people came forward, not many reviews were submitted so I did not know whether this treatment worked or not. Obviously it didn't and in some areas, regrowth was much worse (facial area). It has ruined my life and the past few years has been a nightmare for me. Day in, day out, I have to look at the mess in the mirror before beginning my day. If I could turn the clock back, I wouldn't have gone ahead with it. I would also be financially better off. Yes, they do over market and promote their services heavily. If it sounds too good to be true, it most likely is. I was told many things (if you read my previous submissions on this thread) - good candidate, would successfully work, no pain etc.
I posted my concerns to future patients on their Facebook page, only for their marketing team to remove it which demonstrates how marketing is a concern and shielding the truth is a policy that they abide by.
The clinic tried to offer me 1 free laser treatment as a goodwill gesture which would not correct the damage done anyway. Now they try and shun me whenever I do have treatments and place me or rearrange the clinics so that I am placed with somebody I did not book with, but with the youngest newest trainee.
Since my ordeal, I have had to persistently blast the hairs with non-stop treatments to maintain being hair-free, as alliteratively shaving or depilatory creams would make it far worse. it is very expensive and not what was initially promised or planned to have to have a lifetime (which I pay for) to keep repeatedly having to tackle the hairs with regular laser hair removal.
Obviously, I encourage more people to do come forward and particularly on this site whereby they cannot remove the reviews as every other site is biased and to do with how they portray their clinics in a marketable light.
I urge people not go fall for their goodwill gestures of trying to make it up to you as this does not rectify the root cause of the problem - The fact that it is false advertising and a company operating as bandits in broad light.
It is time that the OFFICE OF FAIR TRADING, TRADING STANDARDS and WATCHDOG are alerted on this before more people are harmed in the process. Being misinformed, physical, mental damage is the greatest harm one can endure from this company. Not so much the financial aspects, it is the lifetime ruin that an individual has to live with although being profit maximisers, this is not a concern to the company more so than their private interests.
