Skin issues including fine lines, pigmentation, discolouration, uneven texture and wrinkles have become increasingly common these days.
“The reason behind premature ageing is stress, rising pollution levels, poor nutrition and increased exposure to blue light. We have been getting cases of a lot of 25 year olds who have developed skin texture similar to 70 year olds because of the above-mentioned factors. However, such skin issues can be avoided by incorporating a regular skincare routine. Besides that, one can also opt for certain injectable skin remodelling treatments including Profhilo, which have almost zero downtime to pump in nutrition for preventing premature ageing,” said Dr Ami Shah, dermatologist, cosmetologist and laser surgeon in Surat.
