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.
