Plan your skin care treatments!


Most patients visit Skin Renewal with a particular skin problem or concern that they would like treated. What many don't know, is that there is a seasonal cycle that we have to bear in mind when treating the skin.

Many of our patients get hot and sweaty in Summer, as a result of spending more time outdoors. We, therefore, recommend treatments that condition, hydrate and prepare the skin for more "aggressive treatments" that can be done in Winter. Doing more aggressive treatments during Summer can, in fact, exacerbate  pigmentation and sun damage.

Summer treatment recommendations:
Maintenance & hydrating treatments

We recommend hydrating facials that include a mild exfoliation (microdermabrasion or superficial chemical peels) every 4-6 weeks. A perfect example is our signature Mesoglow Facial.

Treatments that condition strengthen & protect the skin

We recommend PDT with active serums, Transdermal Mesotherapy with active serums and Laser Genesis to strengthen the dermis.

Superficial skin needling to strengthen the dermis

 Superficial needling increases product penetration and skin cell turnover in preparation for deeper treatments later on in the year.

During Autumn and Winter, it is much cooler, meaning we are less concerned about tanning and sun exposure; making it an ideal time for more aggressive treatments.

Winter & Autumn treatment recommendations:

Deeper Peels such as the 3D Peel, TCA Peels,  Blue Peels,  Cosmelan and  Dermamelan
Laser Resurfacing –  Pearl,  CO2 Laser,  Fraxel DUAL

Deep Skin Needling Treatment
Injection Mesotherapy
or Photogenesis for pigmentation & sun damage

Spring is a season which comes with a few unique challenges. The weather is warmer, although not as hot as Summer. It is a time where we become a little more conservative and look for the “middle ground” in treatment recommendations. We also tend to find that many patients' skins become more light-sensitive, reactive or sensitive due to anti-histamines, sinus medications and respiratory meds, especially those who suffer from sinus and hay fever.

Spring treatment recommendations:

Mild to medium depth peel
On-going maintenance facials
Milder Limelight and  Photogenesis sessions
Superficial to medium depth needling treatments

There are a number of treatments that you can have ALL YEAR ROUND. In fact, it's essential to continue these treatments year round to maintain your skin, prevent recurrence of pigmentation and damage, and keep your skin functioning optimally.

Ongoing treatment recommendations:

 Botox, Fillers and Threads
Superficial  Peels such as Neostrata Glycolic Peels, Lamelle Salicylic Peels, Obagi Radiance Peels, Dermaquest Mango, Pumpkin and Peptide Peels and Mesoestetics modified Jessners Peels.
Superficial Skin Needling
Laser Genesis
Carboxy Therapy

Transdermal Mesotherapy
Regular maintenance facials such as Mesoglow Facials, Extraction Peel Facials, Deep Cleanse Facials and Anti-Ageing Facials

Why not come in for a consultation with one of our Skin Renewal Doctors and plan ahead for beautiful skin all year round?
