Dr Emma Craythorne: Harley Street Dermatologist & Star of The Bad Skin Clinic

Updated: Oct 6, 2023

Dr Emma Craythorne practices as an independent Consultant Dermatologist and Dermatological Surgeon. Based at the St John’s Institute of Dermatology at Guys & St Thomas Hospital and in her private practice at 102 Sydney Street and OneWelbeck. Dr Emma is also the star of Discovery’s The Bad Skin Clinic (UK and Europe) and TLC’s Save my Skin (USA), a docu-series examining how extreme skin conditions affect the real people who suffer from them, some feeling too embarrassed to even leave the house. The show follows Emma 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. Dr Emma’s charismatic and empathetic manner, combined with her pioneering dermatological work and the consequent transformations in patients, transforms not just their looks but also their lives.

Having completed specialist dermatology training at King’s College Hospital, Dr Craythorne undertook an advanced 1-year fellowship in dermatological and laser surgery at Guys and St Thomas’ Hospital. Specialising in procedural dermatology; which includes complete management of skin cancer including Mohs micrographic surgery, dermatological laser surgery and the treatment and management of scars, Dr Craythorne uses the latest cutaneous technologies and evidence-based techniques. As the principal investigator for a number of clinical trials, Dr Craythorne ensures her patients have cutting edge technologies made available to them, and is committed to raising awareness and ensuring therapeutic options for severe scarring are available to all patients.

Dr Craythorne is President of the British Cosmetic Dermatology Group and sits on a the board for skin cancer prevention, cosmetic practice standards authority and the Joint Council for Cosmetic Practitioners. She co-authored the Clinical Practice Standards for non-surgical cosmetic treatments. She has also authored numerous scientific papers, book chapters and her own dermatology textbook. She lectures widely at both national and international conferences.
