We all know how important it is to look after your skin. But we’re often less sure about the best way to do that. How are we supposed to know how healthy it is? Which treatments it needs? Or which products will get the best results?
As with most things in life, knowledge is power. Some skin issues are obvious, but it’s what goes on beneath the surface that really counts. Not all skin damage is visible to the naked eye, so ...

Skin lesions such as moles, cysts and skin tags are very common, and can be present almost anywhere on the body or face. Most cause no harm or discomfort – although it’s vital you keep a close eye on any changes in shape, size or colour, and see a doctor promptly if you have any concerns.

What is a Dermal Roller?
One of the earlier forms of microneedling is Dermal Rolling. A Dermal Roller ...

That’s why our medical professionals at Courthouse Clinics are pioneering a new approach, based on Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (known as BHRT).
