New TV docu-series The Bad Skin Clinic with Dr Emma Craythorne

Updated: Jan 21, 2020

The Bad Skin Clinic is a new docu-series examining how extreme skin conditions – such as enormous cysts, lipomas, acne, and keloid scars – affect the real people who suffer from them, some feeling too embarrassed to even leave the house.

Premiering on Quest Red, The Bad Skin Clinic will follow leading UK dermatologist Dr Emma Craythorne at her Harley Street clinic as she diagnoses and treats her patients, supporting them on their road to recovery and giving them a new lease of life.

Across eight one-hour episodes Dr Emma will meet and treat patients from all walks of life with severe, often debilitating skin diseases. We’ll meet these patients at home and follow their journey as they come and go through Dr Emma’s busy clinic at 152 Harley Street in London. Where they will undergo procedural dermatology treatments, which often involve working with needles, knives, scalpels and machinery such as lasers.

Dr Emma’s charismatic and empathetic manner combined with her pioneering dermatological work and the consequent transformations in patients, will transform not just their looks but also their lives.

The Bad Skin Clinic premieres at 10pm Tuesday 13th August exclusively on Quest Red and the QuestOD app.
