Dr Lindsey Crockett is a full time GP with 20 years experience and has been an Aesthetic Doctor since 2005. She was awarded a first-class degree in Medical Science with Anatomy (1996), and then qualified as a doctor of medicine and surgery at the Royal London and St. Bartholemew’s Hospitals in 1998. Dr Crockett also teaches doctors in aesthetic medical procedures.
Initially she embarked on a career in surgery, but developing interests in different specialities led her to undertake training to become a general practitioner. Her combined surgical and general practitioner medical experience has enabled her to develop the specific and specialist skills on which the aesthetic treatments are founded.
Dr Crockett has 13 years experience in providing aesthetic treatments. She is an advanced practitioner in administering:
- Botox® for the reduction of facial wrinkles of the upper face and for hyperhidrosis;
- Restylane® products as well as using other dermal fillers, for the reduction of facial lines and for increasing lip fullness;
- Sculptra™ , a collagen stimulator, which helps your skin to replace lost collagen providing volume and lifting whilst smoothing lines and wrinkles;
- Sclerotherapy, offering a comprehensive leg thread vein treatment service.
Dr Crockett is a member of the British Association of Cosmetic Doctors and the British Association of Sclerotherapists. She regularly attends professional development meetings, study groups and practical sessions and continually updates and broadens her skills in non-surgical aesthetics treatments. She is also a GP trainer for junior doctors.
“My approach for facial aesthetic treatments is to achieve a natural appearance for my patients, resulting in a more youthful and fresher look. I don’t believe in over-treating, which can result in the inability to move certain muscles or produce natural expressions. That is also why I ensure good follow up for patients to ensure complete satisfaction”
“On many occasions I see patients needing corrections having sought cheaper treatments &/or having seen inadequately trained practitioners. This is an ongoing problem due to lack of regulation over who can administer them. My mantra is safety first and often less is more. I train other doctors to administer these treatments with the emphasis on patient assessment, information and safety”
