He first developed an interest in Cosmetic Dermatology in 1993, whilst working as an NHS GP, and received personal training from worldwide experts in the field, including Professor Jean Carruthers, the Canadian doctor credited with first identifying the potential for anti-wrinkle injections as an aesthetic treatment in the late 1980s. Every practitioner at MediZen has been personally trained and mentored by Dr Eccleston, so you can be sure that whoever you see at MediZen, you will receive only the highest quality treatment.
