Dr John Kessell is a medical practitioner with a special interest in skin cancer and cosmetic treatments. He treats skin cancers employing a broad range of therapeutic options. Dr Kessell has also had training in surgical procedures to remove skin cancers and strives to achieve a great cosmetic result. He regularly assists a plastic surgeon in the operating theatre with skin cancer cases.

Dr Kessell understands the very personal nature of cosmetic treatments. He brings a calm, supportive and reassuring manner to discussions about delicate subjects such as reversing the effects of ageing and dealing with nature’s little imperfections. He understands people often feel self-conscious discussing these topics, so he creates a safe and comfortable environment that encourages open conversation.

Dr Kessell believes that effective treatment of common but distressing skin conditions, like acne, rosacea and eczema, is an art just as much as a science, and requires a highly personalised approach.
