Numerous studies have shown that gravity is not the only determinant of ageing, which is a complex process involving tissue atrophy and bone resorption.

The above ageing signs are aggravated by the loss collagen in the skin which loses its structural support. These factors create a hollowing and sagging appearance with a loss of facial volume and contours which have a profound effect on the appearance of the mid face. Most people can see that they are looking older but do not recognize that volume loss is the reason that their face is beginning to "sink" and "sag".

This is especially true in older men, who develop loss of volume in the midface and a "hound dog "look starts to develop. Although surgical procedures have been used traditionally to tighten skin and muscle and reduce the appearance of sagging, surgery cannot restore lost volume and is particularly obvious in men who cannot easily hide the surgical scars as they have accompanying receding.

Often an ageing face is less about a softening jawline and more about losing volume higher up in the face viz the temples, the eyebrow area, the anterior and lateral cheeks. Volume loss in the lower face and the jawline also gives an aged appearance of jowling.

At Skin Renewal, we have introduced rejuvenative techniques such as the Liquid Facelift which is better suited for volume replacement than traditional techniques such as fat transfer which has considerable downtime . After having had their cheeks "volumised" with dermal fillers , a lot of patients come back to say that they did not realise what a big difference putting the "apple" back into their cheeks has made and they usually request more volume .Restoring volume to these areas has a twofold benefit. It provides a fuller more youthful and convex appearance to the cheeks which reflect light, and it has a lifting, pulling effect that counteracts the appearance of shadows and folds in the mid and lower regions.

Stunning "Hollywood" skin and volume has never been handed out by nature - it has to be bought and usually comes at an expensive price. No matter how great your skin is at 25, the inevitable volume loss in the mid and lower face will slowly leave their marks on one's face by the time one reaches 45. If these problems are not addressed with the latest cutting edge technologies, the downhill progression is inevitable. At Skin Renewal we have recognised this problem and have come up with a solution to make volume loss treatments with injectable fillers more affordable for the average person. As best results are seen with a number of different fillers, a customised solution dependant on budget and expectations is prescribed for every patient. With a progression of dermal fillers treatments, the prospect of a more youthful face is now possible for all our patients.

I have been to dr Tarryn for various anti-aging treatments over the past two months, and not only am I extremely happy with the results, but I am also very impressed with the wonderful way that they have treated me as a person. Every time I leave, I feel great inside and out. I will definitely continue my treatments in the future. Thank you everyone at Skin Renewal Constantia.

What an awesome environment from you minute you walk in, to the time you leave. Renewal Institute will be my second home. Above VIP treatment. Thank you

Review -Esther has very good hands!
Reviewed on 21 September 2018 by Anonymous

Esther has very good hands! Too little time though. I was made to feel comfortable at all times and my overall experience was very good. Next time I will have something more specialised. The only comment was that I found the room too warm - especially for menopausal conditions. Will definitily recommend Esther and the clinic.

Review -Brilliant experience at Skin Renewal
Reviewed on 12 September 2018 by Anonymous

My therapist talked me through the procedures as I had not had some of them before and she was very knowledgable. She also made the experience comforting and relaxing by giving me a hand massage while I waited for the PDT to finish. She cares about her patients and always asks how my personal life is. She is thorough and brilliant at her job. I highly recommend her.

I have been a client at Skin Renewal Constantia for 3 years. I have found their service exceptional and very professional. Treatments are always up to date with current international trends. Both treatments as well as take-home products have made a big difference to my skin.

Review -Dr Lestonn is excellent!

I've been a client at Skin Renewal for the past 5 years, at the Parkhurst, Morningside and Pineslopes branches. All the staff are professional and friendly, and each visit is consistently amazing. I am particularly happy with Dr Lestonn Lawn, who I've been seeing for lip injectables for just over 2 years now. I love his manner and technique and after every visit, my lips never fail to look amazing (Kylie Jenner for what)! We've done Juvederm as well as Restylane fillers, and both have had fab results, thanks to the precision of Dr Lawn! 6 out of 5 stars from me :)

Review -I look and feel rejuvenated
Reviewed on 24 June 2015 by B.W from Craighall

I was quite anxious about having this procedure done as I have a phobia about needles! But my anxiety was quickly allayed. The doctors who do the threading are extremely professional and competent, and they work under the most hygienic conditions. I felt completely confident that I was receiving the best possible treatment. The only discomfort I felt was a slight sting as the topical anaesthic was applied, which lasted only a few brief moments. The threading itself, to my great surprise and delight, was completely painless! I had quite a number of threads done and noticed some swelling in a few areas immediately after the procedure, but that didn't last long. There was some bruising around my neck, however, I do bruise easily so was not at all concerned about it. It's been three weeks since I had the threading. I could see good results almost immediately afterwards and as each day goes by, the effects become more and more visible. My face has definitely lifted; I look younger and feel rejuvenated. People comment on it. Can't wait to see how much better I will look three months from now! Thanks to Skin Renewal for giving me this fresh new look!

Review -What a pleasant surprise!
Reviewed on 1 June 2015 by Fred van der Riet

I am almost 65 years old and have a younger looking skin (and much more younger looking wife). I needed to make sure that people do not think that the beautiful woman with me is my daughter and not my wife. I had the opportunity to to have a rejuvenation experience when Skin Renewal launched Silhouette Threads. What a pleasant surprise! No discomfort other than slight tenderness for 2 days after a most pleasant insertion procedure and a fresh youthful face in the mirror every morning when I shave.

The local anesthetic and the gentle care of the Aesthetic doctors made the process very smooth running and highly recommendable. Get rid of the aging evidence in comfort and without pain.
