I am delighted to be advising The Harley Medical Group on all aspects of skin care, as we share the view that treating the individual holistically is absolutely key.

We are delighted to announce that we will be working with renowned Consultant Dermatologist, Dr Justine Hextall. Dr Justine Hextall will be providing exclusive skincare tips, as well as advice on non-surgical treatments, from Laser Hair Removal to Advanced Botox and more. She will be offering her expert opinion on topical subjects such as the use of fillers, shaping up for summer and hair removal as well as answering your very own questions in our live Facebook Q&A. So be sure to look out for this over on our Facebook page. Here’s a little bit about Dr Justine and why she feels it’s important to take a holistic approach to dermatology, that’s individual to each patient from consultation right through to treatment.


“I was appointed as a consultant dermatologist 11 years ago. Before this I trained for six years at St John’s Institute of Dermatology. I remained as an honorary consultant at St Thomas’ hospital for 5 years before pursuing my career in skin cancer. I am now the Skin Network Site Specific Group (NSSG) chair for Sussex. I am an expert in the management of facial skin cancers with both a surgical and non-surgical approach.

The best part of my job is the fact I can make, literally a visible difference to people’s lives. As you can imagine skin problems can affect all aspects of one’s life. To be able to say I can help you and make this so much better, and see the relief is amazing. The confident, smiling individual that tells me that every aspect of their work and social life has now improved, makes it all worthwhile.

My interest in aesthetic dermatology developed as I wanted to give patients the best possible result following surgery and following my management of inflammatory skin conditions, such as acne and rosacea. I realized that a holistic approach works. Now when I assess an individual I will always address diet, lifestyle, and skin care regime before suggesting a treatment plan. This allows long term success to managing skin conditions and empowers the individual to take control of their skin health.

I am delighted to be advising The Harley Medical Group on all aspects of skin care, as we share the view that treating the individual holistically is absolutely key.

When giving advice regarding cosmetic treatments it is important that the practitioner is able to listen carefully to concerns and translate ‘I feel I just look tired” into a clear treatment plan for the client. When I talk about a skin care plan, this may involve a course of clinical treatments but also guidance on diet, exercise and a skin care regime that will maintain optimum skin health.  It is also important to keep up to date. There are always new products and techniques and one must be aware of them to ensure the safest and most efficacious treatments are being offered.

Finally, my advice is always less is more.  Facial beauty is unique for each of us. Any corrective treatment should be subtle, and give our skin a freshness and glow that highlights our best self.”
