From the age of thirty, cell turnover starts to slow down which leads to a buildup of dead skin, and it doesn't always slow at the same pace across your face so you end up with patches of dead skin in some areas, causing your complexion to be dull, uneven, and rough.

Skin Renewal Tip

No matter how great your skin is at 25, the inevitable age spots, pigmentation marks, red blemishes and sagging will slowly leave their marks on one's face by the time one reaches 35. The earlier one starts with preventative treatments and products, the more one is able to slow down the ageing process and maintain a fresher, more youthful, more radiant skin, for longer. At Skin Renewal we have access to the latest technology, most recent advancement in skin products and a highly skilled team of doctors and therapists who are able to tailor our treatment packages to meet your needs.

Ageing skin is associated with a range of cosmetic concerns. The development of dry, dull skin also is common, adding to an overall lack lustre appearance. With ageing, the surface of the skin tends to have a "sallow" appearance- that is, dry, with a slight yellow, lifeless tinge, which results from a slowing down of the metabolic process yielding skin, that does not renew frequently, and looks "sluggish".

Exfoliation is the key to removing dead skin cells that cause your skin to look dull. To force your skin into the habit of faster cell turnover, introduce products containing ingredients such as salicylic acid, retinol, PHA’s, peptides, exfoliating enzymes and growth factors that speed up the process into your daily regimen. One also needs to moisturise your skin on a daily basis and protect the skin from the sun and free radicals by using anti-oxidants and sun protection products.

In addition to dead skin, dull skin is also caused by poor diets high in fat and processed foods. To improve the look of your skin you need to eat more fresh fruits and vegetables and less processed junk food and increase your daily water intake.

Review -Above and beyond the call of Duty!
Reviewed on 9 July 2020 by Pearl Tarjanne
Relocated to Capetown from JHB last year. Was really nervous to try a new branch in a new City and felt discouraged because I hadn’t seen much progress. I booked an appointment at Claremont and met Serena Pictor! Serena was so supportive and encouraging, she educated me about my treatments, she even helped me find a better healthier supplement to aid with my insomnia, checking my blood pressure and making sure I I got all the right tools to enhance my treatments to achieve my goal.Coming to Skinrenewal Claremont wasn’t a long term plan, but Serena gave me what I couldn’t find anywhere ( Team Support) We are in this Together!. Serena is the human connection between the Clinic and client, she doesn’t make me feel like a client, she provides a sanctuary of calm away from my hectic life. Thank you so much Serena, you are so Amazing 💕
