Discovery-owned lifestyle network TLC has slated the three-part series ‘When Skin Goes Wrong’ to premiere this November. London-based dermatologists Emma McMullen, Dev Shah, Adil Sheraz and Natalia Spierings will provide an inside look at the dermatology clinic where they help patients with their skin concerns.
The series premieres on Thursday, November 19, at 10 pm ET/PT.
‘When Skin Goes Wrong’ features patients of all ages and skin problems. From a 62-year-old who has been living with a lipoma — benign fatty tumor — on her tummy for almost a decade to a woman who has kept the same hairstyle for 20 years in order to hide a big lump on her forehead and even tackling a cyst that been growing for an astonishing 15 years, these doctors will stop at nothing to make their clients feel comfortable and confident in their skin.
Four of London’s top dermatologists, Dr Emma McMullen, Dr Dev Shah, Dr Adil Sheraz and Dr Natalia Spierings will provide an inside look at the dermatology clinic where people go to sort all their skin concerns. Specializing in all types of skin issues, these dedicated doctors will squeeze, drain, pop and surgically remove cysts, lipomas, acne and anything else that’s getting under their patients’ skin. While the treatment methods are often messy, the results aren’t just skin-changing, they’re life-changing.
Dr Emma McMullen, trained in Manchester, began her career in Salford in 2003. She has been practising as a full-time NHS consultant since 2010 and is currently the Clinical Director for Dermatology and Tertiary Medicine at Salford Royal Foundation Trust heading up the largest Dermatology Department in the UK. Her areas of specialisation and research are urgent and life-threatening dermatology, acne, allergic drug reactions, ulceration and hidradenitis suppurativa.
