About Skin Renewal

Skin Renewal is part of the Renewal Institute that also incorporates Body, Health, Sleep and Brain Renewal - a collection of aesthetic and wellness clinics that offer a holistic approach to anti-ageing treatments and healthcare. The Institute’s aim is to encourage patients to optimise their health and wellbeing whilst looking and feeling their best.

The Renewal Institute’s very first branch opened in 2005 by the company’s founder, Dr Maureen Allem. Today, The Renewal Institute consists of 16 luxurious clinics situated in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Cape Town and Durban.

Each Skin Renewal clinic is fitted with a team of highly-skilled medical doctors, all with a special interest in holistic aesthetics - the prevention and treatment of ageing from the inside out. While we address many skin conditions and concerns, we know these often directly relate to our patient’s health and are actually the symptom of an underlying medical condition. As we pride ourselves on our integrative approach, we’ll always strive to remedy both the cause as well as the symptom.

Skin Renewal simplifies the concept of “skin care” by using four integral pillars. The first is our innovative use of injectables to address lines and wrinkles such as botulinum toxin, dermal fillers and threads. All our doctors apply the MD Codes™ method, a groundbreaking non-invasive method based on a deeper understanding of facial anatomy. They don't just treat the symptoms of facial ageing, they target the underlying causes in a way that can even prevent future wrinkles, sagging and volume loss to restore and enhance in a natural way.

The second is the use of our many in-office treatments such as lasers, chemical peels and skin needling. The third is advising our patients on the use of medical skin care products at home. Last but not least, the fourth pillar is the adoption of a healthy lifestyle, something we can help you create and maintain via Health Renewal.

Our many years of experience has shown that, when it comes to aesthetic treatments, a combination of modalities that enhance each other’s effects is far more effective than stand-alone treatments. Because of this, we’ve packaged our large treatment catalogue into bundles we refer to as “solutions”. Our doctors have over 130 solutions at their disposal, to accurately address each patient’s conditions in a way that’s effective while also taking their budget into account.

Ultimately, it’s our fully integrated approach that sets the Renewal Institute apart. No other anti-ageing company in South Africa tackles ageing, wellbeing and the development of self-esteem from as many angles. Our continuous investment in the latest technologies, products and staff training are what ensure our patients' infinitely better results.
