Our Consultant Dermatologist Dr Anjali Mahto was featured on BBC's The Truth About Looking Good with Cherry Healey.
Britons spend £9 billion a year on beauty products which make many claims to improve and even transform us. The programme explores the claims and reviews the scientific evidence.
Sun exposure is the biggest cause of wrinkles, attributing ¾ to ageing of the skin. Whilst prevention, in the form of rigorous sun protection is better than cure, the programme explores anti-wrinkle creams and if they actually work. Dr Mahto shares her expertise in improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots and skin pigmentation.
With society becoming more obsessed with social media and the quest for the perfect selfie, people are wanting to look instantly better without the use of filters and repetitive attempts at achieving the perfect picture. Injectables such as botox and dermal fillers have had a significant rise in popularity and can help improve the signs of ageing, but are not for everybody. Dr Mahto discusses alternatives and the efficacy of prescription and over the counter products in this insightful programme.
Dr Mahto is one of the UK's leading dermatologists and is passionate about evidence-based treatment, bridging the gap between traditional medical dermatology, beauty and cosmetic medicine.
