The 4 Pillars of Anti-Ageing by Skin Renewal

With images of near perfection portrayed in magazines and movies, normal women have a distorted perception of what they’re supposed to look like, and put unhealthy, unrealistic expectations on themselves.

Unfortunately, society responds better to good-looking people. We may feel more confident when we look our best, it can be damaging to strive to become someone else in the process. Simply being the best version of ourselves is a much healthier approach.

“It’s important to understand that a glowing, youthful complexion is part of a holistic approach. Being healthy on the inside will naturally show on the outside,” says Dr. Maureen Allem, founder and medical director of Skin Renewal. She often explains to her patients that there are 4 pillars to anti-ageing, and all they are all equally important.

Pillar 1 – The key to a younger you is a healthy Iifestyle.

The entire system works together in harmony, and no issue can be treated in isolation. A healthy lifestyle consists of a well-balanced diet, lots of water, regular exercise, enough restorative, deep sleep and managing stress levels. These factors contribute to being healthy, and when the body is healthy, the skin will reflect it!

Pillar 2 – the correct usage of injectables such as Botox, Dermal fillers and Threads.

These treatments address the formation of wrinkles, loss of volume and sagging skin. While wrinkles and volume loss can be reversed, prevention is better than cure. Botox show excellent results in the removal of lines and wrinkles, while fillers allow subtle contouring of the profile, and threads tightens of the skin without cutting.

Although these treatments have been around for over a decade, they’re still associated with a frozen expression. This is a misconception, which only appears in extreme cases, so it’s important to visit a doctor with lots of experience and who does these treatments regularly.

Pillar 3 – addressing the condition of your skin.

It should have a smooth, even texture, reduced pore size and a glowing complexion. The ideal treatments to get the best results are chemical peels, microdermabrasion, laser treatments and skin needling – or ideally a combination. The aim is to boost and stimulate collagen, as the natural production of these decreases with age. The effect of these treatments are accumulative, so you shouldn’t underestimate the importance of regular treatments.

Pillar 4 – ensure a good home care regime.

Being disciplined at home with a routine in the morning and evening will show the results. Invest in products suitable for your skin type. Your doctor would know the condition of your skin and should be able to recommend the best products. Products with active ingredientsthat penetrate the deeper layers of the skin are best, and are typically found in medical skin care ranges.
