    What are Lipodissolve / Lipostabil?

    Read More

    Studies have shown that over time, adipose tissue becomes lazy and begin storing excess fat especially under the chin, resulting in a turkey like appearance. The majority of us will always be interested in shortcuts to a better sculpted face and jawline but not everybody is willing to consider the surgical options. Skin Renewal brings you a revolutionary new non surgical treatment that can deliver dramatic results in a short space of time.

    Lipodissolve or Injection lipolysis into the problem areas is a non surgical procedure to diminish localized fat deposits using a natural substance called lecithin in a cocktail with growth factors and peptides.

    How does Lipodissolve / Lipostabil work?

    Read More

    Lipodissolve (also known as Lipostabil) contains the active ingredient Lecithin also known as PPC (Phosphatidyl choline) which dissolves the fat cell wall and causes fat reduction. The long term results of the Lipodissolve procedure are very dependent on what active ingredients are present in the solution. At Skin Renewal, we always use a combination of Lecithin and award winning growth factors and peptides. The growth factors & peptides present in the cocktail stimulate the production of collagen so that the dermis is strengthened and skin texture improved on.

    What are the typical areas that are treated?

    Read More

    On the Face Lipodissolve treats:

    • Double chin
    • Fat or Flabby cheeks
    • Facial sculpturing

    A double chin and flabby jowls does not necessarily come with age and these signs are usually recognised when one sees oneself in profile or in photographs. Double chins or neck waddles are the result of excess fat or hanging loose skin or both. That distinction is important as it changes the strategy for what will be the most effective treatment. At Skin Renewal we offer non surgical combinations of treatments such as Lipodissolve, TriPollar™, Accent, Titan and Velashape that reduce fat cells and tighten skin. The sooner these procedures are started to reduce resistant fat and improve collagen levels, the better the long term outcome.

    When should one start Lipodissolve?

    Read More

    Studies have shown that over time, adipose tissue becomes lazy and begin storing excess fat. As one age, the skin’s elasticity declines dramatically, and gravity constantly pulls on our bodies. Today’s savvy patients and consumers are looking for treatments and services that work in concert with their home products to provide more discernible results for anti-ageing . The good news is that the latest treatments such as Lipodissolve involve combinations that are more effective than ever at eliminating excess fat such as a double chin and fatty cheeks and treatments should be started before the grade resistant fat deteriorates to a level which is more resistant to treatment. .If thirty -year-olds + opt for preventative non invasive procedures; a new trend will develop resulting in a much different type of ageing than older generations.

    How can Lipodissolve give back a youthful appearance and help the ageing process?

    Read More

    There are different types of skin and we all age differently. No matter how well we look after our skin, the inevitable ageing will take place. One can maintain a “Hollywood face” by keeping one’s skin firm and taught with collagen to avoid the inevitable sagging that takes place over time. Tighter, firmer skin supports the face and prevents the other soft tissues in our face and the muscles from sagging. Lipodissolve with Growth Factors stimulates the fibroblasts to produce collagen, which is the major support structure for the skin. The Lecithin in the Lipodissolve destroys the fat cell and re-sculpts the jawline. If one can keep one’s skin firm and taught with collagen, then the sagging that takes place over time can be contained as tighter skin supports the soft tissues of the face.

    The new concept today is to start with tightening and collagen rejuvenation treatments early so as to and avoid or postpone surgical solutions for as long as possible. With Lipodissolve 4 - 6 treatments are needed 2 to 4 weeks apart. At least one yearly cycle is recommended.

    Can Lipodissolve be combined with other treatments?

    Read More

    Any treatment modality on its own can make a big difference, but in our eyes it’s not sufficient. Resistant fat and cellulite have different forms and grades and thus success needs a combination of treatments that include reduction of fat cells, shrinking and tightening of existing collagen and further collagen stimulation.

    At Skin Renewal Lipodissolve is commonly performed with 3D Skin Rejuvenation™, Transdermal mesotherapy and Carboxytherapy treatments for best non-surgical double chin reduction results. 3D Skin Rejuvenation™, each clinical application separately presents a powerful solution for the most in demand, fastest growing procedures with no downtime. This combination is one of the most widely used and most effective methods of achieving a significant aesthetic improvement within 2 to 6 months when the effects of collagen stimulation and remodeling become evident
    At Skin Renewal, with combination treatments every 2 weeks, in 3 months we can take any skin and make it into almost perfect skin: luminous, smooth, blemish free and tight
