About Barstable Medical Clinic

Barstable Medical Clinic provides the highest level of care in all aspects of cosmetic treatment, skin health and dermatology. Founded by nurse specialist, Kathy Abbott, in early 2000, the clinic was soon joined by her daughters, Dr Danielle & Dr Ciara Abbott.  Passionate about empowering patients to look and feel their best, our experienced and friendly team at Barstable Medical Clinic, ensure that all patients undergo a regular medical and aesthetic consultation in order to create a unique treatment plan, individually tailored to each and every persons needs and concerns.

We do not believe a ‘one size fits all’; instead we aim to support each patient with their cosmetic journey, no matter how big or small their ageing concerns are. Finalists for the ‘Best Clinic South England’ in the 2017 National Aesthetic Awards, as well as our doctors featured in the international Aesthetics Journal and BBC Radio Essex, and with outstanding 5 star Google reviews, Barstable Medical Clinic remains one of the most popular yet discreet aesthetics clinics in Essex.

All our treatments are performed to the highest of medical & ethical standards. We pride ourselves on excellent patient care, your safety and above all, your total satisfaction. We strongly believe in the ‘moral’ aspect of aesthetics, in that we will never advise you to undertake a treatment that we do not truly think will benefit you. All patients are advised to come for a free consultation, where our dedicated medical team will advise you as to what procedures are suited to your individual needs, and then we actively encourage patients to go home to think about and learn more about the treatments we have advised. Patients regularly praise us for our integrity and honesty about what treatments they require, and we continue to ensure that no patient ever undertakes a treatment that is not wholly required.

Our main aim is to provide safe, evidence-based and reliable aesthetic treatments but above all to ensure that all our patients retain a natural looking, refreshed and age-appropriate appearance. We fully understand that many patients are often anxious about having treatments done, particularly as we seem to currently live in a world where many people, unfortunately, appear ‘fake’ or ‘overdone’. We always say, our biggest advert for our work is our patient and therefore rest assured; when you choose to have treatments at Barstable Medical Clinic, not only will you feel in the safest of hands, but you will leave looking the best version of you.
