Answer

It sounds to me like you are battling with a very sensitised skin. As a result of this, you are getting redness and breakouts and more than likely, your barrier is not functioning properly. So it’s a bit of a viscious circle. So what we need to do is fix the barrier and get your skin’s sensitivity to just calm down. Once we have got that under control and your skin is less reactive, we can slowly start introducing the right products to deal with any uneven skin tone and marks and spots that you have remaining on your skin. So I suggest you have a look at going on to Lamelle’s Serra Range for at least 2 months. That will sort out your barrier function and calm the skin down. Once we’ve got that sorted, you need to contact me again to let me know if there are any marks or dark patches left on your skin (by the old break outs), and if you need me to start helping you to introduce active products to help boost and maintain your skin’s texture and colour. You can get the Lamelle products from any Skin Renewal, and you can locate your nearest Branch on www.skinrenewal.co.za

Thanks!

Question

Good Day Dr. I exercise but still have some fat around my waist. I have read about the vella treatments and fat freezing. However, I do not have money to waste and would like to know in your opinion what is the best way to go? Or are there some new developments? Also is there something that we can do at home if our finances are limited? Thank You so much. Tanya
