For many patients, a visit to their family GP is just too embarrassing to contemplate, which can delay treatment for years or even forever.
London (PRWEB UK) 29 October 2012
Since Embarrassing Bodies aired on Channel 4 in 2007, the British public have had a real insight into the range of medical problems and the embarrassment caused.
Dr Ross Perry explains:
“Brits may have become more aware of the types of embarrassing medical problems, but seeking help still can be quite problematic. Firstly, for many patients, a visit to their family GP is just too embarrassing to contemplate, which can delay treatment for years or even forever. In addition, the treatment may not even be available on the NHS and if it is, waiting lists can be long and the experience unsatisfactory.”
“The private sector does offer an alternative route and the good news is that many of these conditions can be relatively quickly and easily treated with excellent outcomes.”
One of the most common embarrassing complaints is hyperhidrosis, also known as excessive sweating. Where perspiration is not stopped by anti-perspirant products and wet patches mark clothing, the patient can suffer immense loss of self-confidence. Cosmedics doctors can treat underarm sweating with injections that are guaranteed to work for months at a time.
Cosmedics doctors specialise in mole removal, using the latest laser technology for minimal pain and minimal scarring. For larger moles, excision is available using a light local anaesthetic for a fast comfortable experience.
Skin blemishes such as warts, skin tags are another common complaint. These can be stubborn and resistant to over the counter treatments. Skin tags in the genital area are particularly embarrassing for patients. However, Cosmedics offer fast treatment with the latest technology and methods for rapid healing with minimal scars.
Thread veins and spider veins on the face or body can look unsightly. Dr Perry says
“For these troublesome vein problems, there are a couple of options. For smaller veins or facial veins, laser treatment is very fast and effective; but we also offer sclerotherapy injections for larger veins. Depending on the individual, treatments may be combined for best results.”
Another condition which quite commonly presents is excessive or unwanted hair. Dr Perry explains:
“Body hair is natural, but excessive hair can be quite embarrassing for patients, who find it socially unacceptable and unsightly. For example; men may have a particularly hairy back. For women, excessive hair growth can be a particularly distressing and visible symptom of PCOS (poly-cystic ovaries). Laser hair removal offers permanent hair reduction results by literally destroying the hair follicles while the hair is growing.
