Hi, I am 25 years of age and my skin is oily. How do I treat it?

Answer

Thank you for your question. My suggestion to you is that you go onto a skincare range that is specifically geared at oil control while at the same time caring for, hydrating and protecting your skin. Lamelle makes a fantastic range called Clarity, and their products are fantastic as they also incorporate an oral supplement. So you are treating the skin from the inside as well as from the outside. These products are available at all Skin Renewal branches. You also just need to keep in mind that we need to ascertain the cause of the problem. If we can treat the cause, it really does go a long way to ensure your skin is well looked after as you start ageing. If you are able to get to one of our branches, I would really recommend you have a consultation with one of our medical aesthetic doctors so that we get you the best advice and treatment possible for your condition.

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
