Acne and Reduced Ageing of the Skin

Dr Bataille is looking at the relationship between acne and reduced ageing especially in the skin. Her team at Kings College has confirmed that acne sufferers have longer telomeres and therefore appear to age more slowly than their peers. This is often visible many years after the acne has settled down. The research was published in a top American dermatology journal in September and was covered by the media.

Arm mole count predicts skin cancer risk

Having more than 11 moles on one arm indicates a higher-than-average risk of skin cancer or melanoma, research suggests.

Dr Bataille appeared on the Radio 4 Today programme and the BBC News talking about a new tool that GP’s can use to gauge the potential risk of developing skin cancer.
