Dr Alison Burton, MBBS, MA, BMedSci, LLB

A Finland-based cosmetic doctor, researcher and writer with over 12 years experience in aesthetic medicine. Dr Burton’s previous practice in dermatology and basic skin cancer surgery in the UK led to an academic interest in the ageing process of the skin and facial structures.

Dr Burton’s research interests also include the impact of history, politics and economics on definitions of ‘beauty’, and the impact of this in turn on self-confidence and ideas of personal identity.
