Skin – Body – Health – Hair Renewal

SKIN BODY HEALTH RENEWALBy now, I am sure you have come across the growing chain of Skin Renewal clinics, which have further branched into Body Renewal, Health Renewal and Hair Renewal. A complete medical with a touch of aesthetician approach to being the best possible you that you can. After attending the launch of the new IV infusions administered by a registered nurse on offer from Health Renewal, Victor explained how the expansion from Skin Renewal to incorporate Body, Health and Hair solutions came about. He explained it simply with a metaphor saying that our skin is like a dashboard of the car and when the lights come up on the dashboard, it doesn’t mean that there is something wrong with the light that is now shining, rather that there is something wrong with the car. Skin Renewal realised there is a gap in the market for available solutions to underlying conditions which reflect on the surface of the skin, which can only be zapped by a laser so many times which makes them disappear before they come back due the underlying cause of the problem being left untreated.

Instead of being treating for multiple conditions with different specialists the medical assistance offered from the Health Renewal clinics ensures that there will be constant communications from doctors to doctors and nurses to nurses which will be much like the communication within a hospital environment but these doctors work hand in hand together and understand each other. The purpose of Health Renewal and all of their offerings is simple, to treat causes – not symptoms. Health Renewal is not to make sick people better but rather to make you as well as you can be.

IVAbout IV Infusions on Offer at Health Renewal

Intravenous therapy, otherwise known as IV therapy is the infusion of liquid substances directly into a vein. Intravenous means “within vein”. This sounds a lot scarier than it really is simply because it involves needles and when I first read about it I thought I’d spent enough time in a hospitals with drips in my arm to even consider having my own IV infusions.  The liquid substances being directly infused into your blood system are vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants in order to correct intracellular nutrient deficiencies and help various health concerns. It is a more effective why than popping a vitamin because oral consumption of vitamins and minerals is affected and limited by factors which include the condition of the gut as well as stress and anxiety levels. After watching Victor be the test dummy and demonstrate while having the nurse how simple and easy this procedure was, I felt a lot more at ease and thought to myself, well I could do that, if it would make me feel better. Truth is, at Health Renewal, an IV Infusion is almost guaranteed to do so. Health Renewal customise the infusions to a personal note in order to combine the correct cocktail of ingredients just for you. There is no “one-size-fits-all” when it comes to IV infusions.

There are various cocktails of infusions available at Health Renewal including but not limited to:

  • Skin Brightening Infusion Cocktail
  • Health/Hair/Skin/ Nails Infusion Cocktail
  • Chronic Stress Infusion Cocktail
  • Detoxification/ Anti Oxidation/ Organ Cleansing Infusion Cocktail
  • Hangover Recovery Infusion cocktail
  • Anti Viral Infusion Cocktail
  • Super Immune Infusion Cocktail
  • Athletes Performance/ Vitality Cocktail
  • Healthy Heart Cocktail Infusion

Dr. Fred at the event explained that you are what you eat but you are also what you digest and absorb. If the digestive system is absorbing impurities eventually your system will hold onto things ad eventually it clogs up your system. Your stomach and gut are critical as they are linked to every part of your body. Probiotics are essential for everyone but the capsules are not 100% successful. A probiotic is a complex science and they can get destroyed so easily. This is why IV infusions internationally have had such acclaim in terms of wellness benefits and the trends are gradually increasing on our shores because we cannot rely so heavily on our guts when there are other crucial influencing factors in ensuring we are receiving the correct nutrients 100% of the time.

Health Renewal boasts that the average age of their customers has shifted from over 40 years old to early 30’s…. This means that the consumer need for medical guidance for everything relating to general well being has shifted to be prioritised a younger age, which is the poster child for prevention being better than a cure.

If you’re intrigued, I dare you to find out more and visit a Health Renewal near you for you to start on your investment to prolonged wellness.

DCL Skincare

A while back I had the privilege to attend an event at the Laserderm Aesthetic Clinic branch in Claremont for some informative information on the Gentle Max Pro Laser system as well as the DCL skincare range, which I was not familiar with at all but now I am and thought I would share this new found knowledge with you all.DCL

At a glance the Dermatologic Cosmetic Laboratories, otherwise known as DCL, looks somewhat pharmaceutical in appearance, crisp white with no graphics or imagery but rather just clearly labelled. This first impression is not far from the truth as the products are developed and collaborated with the medical field in order to create a “focus group” which marks out the development of the formulas in order to achieve the best possible result for the end user. The best news: DCL is cruelty free!

The company is 33 years old and co-pioneered the development of AHA’s, (Alpha Hydroxy Treatments) which are unique in their own right. Who wouldn’t want to be able to resurface their skin or address uneven skin tone and decongest pores all while ridding the skin of dead skin cells for great results in clarity and texture?

Similar to other skincare brands, DCL offer anti-ageing, eye care products, antioxidant products, specialised and general cleansing, specialised moisturising, specialised masks and specialised sun protections. The DCL products are a luxury skincare brand which is driven on results. As with most of the luxurious things in life, they are not cheap but can you place a price on the health of your skin?

Some of my top picks for the products within the range are:
