Much like the lights on a dashboard that tell us when something is wrong with our car, inflammatory skin conditions are a signal that something is wrong. 16 Nov 2020 Read more

Different types of pigmentation and how to treat itDarker skin types are more prone to pigmentation. Couple that with the harshness of the South African sun and you can see why it's a big concern for many of our patients at Skin Renewal. Still, there are several different types, so it's important to know which kind you're dealing with as each responds best to a particular treatment path. 5 Aug 2020 Read more

The biggest trend in aesthetics is to look refreshed, not re-workedThere once was a time when a frozen forehead was the order of the day, but now, the biggest trend in aesthetic medicine is a shift towards a more natural look. Now, rather than obliterate a line, we will soften it. Also, rather than overfill, we simply restore the structure that once existed and perhaps enhance it with a little gentle contouring. Ultimately, the goal is to look like the very best version of you, nobody else. 5 Jun 2020 Read more

Improving the quality of your sleep means better health and more youthful looksGood quality sleep is the foundation of good health and yet many of us underestimate its importance. Worse yet, as the world sits in the grip of an anxiety-inducing pandemic, even less of us are getting enough of it. Alas, a lack of sleep, especially on an ongoing basis, has a terrible effect on your health. It's also one of the major causes of premature ageing. 3 Jun 2020 Read more

Collagen - what it is and why you want more of itWhen we're young, our skin has a youthful-looking firmness. As we get older, however, this gives way to general laxity, a loss of volume, sagging and wrinkles. While there are many factors contributing to the ageing process, a lot of it has to do with collagen. 2 Jun 2020 Read more

Consumers are demanding next-generation facials and Skin Renewal is listeningThanks to the information age, more consumers are taking it upon themselves to educate themselves about skincare. Gone are the days when they're willing to buy whatever's on the beauty counter based on the endorsement of the person paid to sell it. Now, people go online to read unbiased reviews as well as get their information from independent expert sources quoting doctors and dermatologists. 27 May 2020 Read more

Every day is Black Friday for online retailers during lockdownWith the rest of the world already in lockdown by the time it was implemented in South Africa, the element of surprise was eased somewhat. Mentally, we were able to prepare for the initial three-week period, but it was the announcement of the extended period that caught many of us off guard, if not out of product. 25 May 2020 Read more

The myth of the miracle cureDespite what many a lotion, potion or advertising campaign would have you believe, when it comes to delaying the ageing process, there is no instant cure or magic bullet. You can't neglect your skin for years and then expect to see dramatic results when you buy your first retinol serum at the age of forty. The only surefire way to age with grace is to start preventative treatments early, doing a little here and there over time in a way that adds up to a lot in the future. In fact, those who invest in the correct skincare and regular treatments from as early as their twenties are very likely to avoid resorting to serious and invasive measures such as a surgical facelift later on. 24 Jan 2020 Read more

Protect your skin from the sun this summer, inside and out!As South Africans, we're blessed with a gloriously sunny holiday season. Still, amid all the festivities, most of which will take place outdoors, it's easy to forget that now is the time to take the most caution when it comes to protecting our skin from the sun. After all, unprotected exposure to its damaging rays is the number-one cause of premature ageing, not to mention skin cancer. 12 Dec 2019 Read more
