Save My Skin: Who pays for the treatments? TLC show's costs explored!

It is the TLC series where people visit Dr. Emma Craythorne for help with a skin condition. The real question is, who pays for treatments?

Clients are seen heading to one of England’s top dermatologists, with hopes to improve their appearance once and for all, on Save My Skin.

Who pays for Save My Skin treatments?

  • It is likely that clients pay for skin treatments

Although this has not officially been confirmed, anyone who arranges a consultation with Dr. Emma Craythorne usually pays a fee.

As her clinic is private, it is thought that patients would pay for treatments, rather than have them paid for by the government through the NHS.

One fan wrote on a forum: “I think Dr Emma is an NHS doctor, and the government pays for the patients.”

While this is possible, consultations with Emma Craythorne on a usual basis – which are shown on the TV show – are usually paid for by her clients.

Other shows, such as Dr. Sandra Lee on Dr. Pimple Popper, offers patients free treatments, in exchange for being shown on her YouTube channel.

People get free travel, accommodations, and treatment with no added cost on Dr. Pimple Popper, so it is possible that the same goes for Save My Skin.

How much does an appointment cost?

  • A consultation with Dr. Emma Craythorne costs £500

Then, if the client wants a follow-up appointment, it costs them £200.

Other TLC doctors such as Dr. Sandra Lee, on Dr. Pimple Popper, charge $500 to $600 on a usual basis, for an extraction session.

Most dermatologists say they won’t remove blackheads, according to Dr Sandra Lee, which means that she “wins” as she does it for free.

Where is Dr. Emma Craythorne’s clinic?

  • 152 Harley Street, London

Dr. Emma Craythorne has established a private premier day clinic, where she is a consultant dermatologist and dermatological surgeon.

She specialises in all areas of skin scarring, skin cancer, general dermatology and cosmetic dermatology.
