Regarded as a voice of reason in the beauty industry, Dr Sam Bunting received her training from Cambridge University and University College London and became a Member of the Royal College of Physicians in 2002. She practised medical dermatology for 7 years before establishing her own private practice on Harley St in order to offer her patients bespoke solutions to the full spectrum of medical or cosmetic dermatology.
With a special interest in acne and anti-aging, she takes an holistic approach to her practise, balancing the psychological aspects alongside the aesthetic.
“It’s not enough to deal with acne by suppressing the disease alone. You need to be able to improve skin tone, uneven texture and smooth out scarring in order to make that person look and feel their best; to heal the emotional scars along with the physical ones. Treating the skin from the inside out is what I do best,” she says.
Anti-aging and acne strategies are a key focus for Dr Sam who approaches her work with empathy, knowledge and a light, aesthetic touch. She utilises the latest prescription-strength skin-care products, medical needling and injectables in combination to deliver optimal skin health.
