Get To Know Your Skin From Deep Within
It's easy to notice changes in our skin when we can see them, especially if you're guilty of an up-close pore inspection of an evening! We often see patients in clinic once they have started to see textural changes such as fine lines and wrinkles, or pesky skin conditions such as pigmentation or acne. But what if you could see these changes before they even begin to occur?We don't have a magic crystal ball allowing us to look into the future, but what we do have is just as good.Changes in skin can be caused by a number of factors including hormones or lifestyle, but stress being one of the biggest culprits, meaning that everything starts below skin's surface.
