Unwanted gifts from Father Time

Share this story

It’s amazing how some events from the past stay with us forever – a talk, a specific book, an inspiring poem, etc. I remember as a kid listening to a drama on Springbok radio (Springbok radio was there long before television!) about Father Time that brought the woman in the story a gift every year, but it was a gift that she did not wish to receive. These gifts were little lines and wrinkles, nicely wrapped up in flaky, dry skin, which lead to her slowly but surely growing older every year.  No wonder she didn’t want to receive the gifts! Nobody wants to become visibly older; eternal youth is what we all wish for!

Well, you can keep Father Time at bay for a long time if you visit your Skin Renewal clinic.  With all the new innovations and products available at these clinics, it becomes a great investment for your skin’s future.

Loose skin on the body can be the result of natural ageing, where the skin produces less collagen and elastin which causes the skin to sag and become thinner, resulting in the classic signs of ageing.  It can also be caused by sudden dramatic weight loss or the after effects of child birth – whatever the cause of loose skin, there is help at hand.


At Body Renewal there is multi-modality therapies that helps in treating loose skin and this can reverse the signs of ageing and improve skin appearance. Obviously there are different levels of skin laxity, but a combination of skin tightening procedures such as Titan®, Tripollar™ and Velashape™ has produced some really visibly improved results. This is usually combined with Carboxytherapy and eight out of ten patients see improvement after the first treatment. It is recommended that a person should start with rejuvenation therapy early so as to avoid and delay the inevitable pull of gravity!


Tripollar™ by Pollogen effectively treats cellulite and resistant fat at the root of the problem as it selectively heats the fat cells under the skin which increases metabolism and secretion of liquid fat. This local heating causes an immediate contraction of the collagen fibres and this accelerates the production of new collagen and elastin fibres which strengthens the dermis. The effect is that fat cells shrink in size and skin is restored closer to its original form, at the same time reducing or improving the effect of cellulite.

Tripollar™ treats resistant fat such as bra bulges, tummy rolls, saddle bags and inner thighs, and is effective on those persistent fat pockets that we battle to get rid of in spite of healthy living, exercise and remaining within the correct weight range for our height.

It is normally combined with Lipodissolve, Lipomassage Radiofrequency and Carboxytherapy treatments for best results. At Skin and Body Renewal clinics, a combination of treatments can take a good body and turn it into a wolf whistle, slim and trim body in about 3 to 6 months. Facial treatments needs a total of about 6 – 8 treatments every one or two weeks, and after that maintenance therapy is recommended.

A major advantage of Tripollar™ is that it treats all skin types without pain or down time, and the result is fewer centimetres in the problem areas and noticeable improvement overall.

Other Therapy

Tripollar™ is just one of the treatments offered and there are many others that will be used, alone or in combination for best results. At Skin and Body Renewal each person is assessed by a medical doctor and a program is designed according to each person’s available time and budget. It is also important to be as close to your ideal weight or Body mass index (BMI) before starting on therapy for the best results. Ask about the Slender Wonder Medical weight loss program as it does produce excellent results. It is an extremely effective slimming program and a person can expect a weight loss of 8-12 kilograms in the first month if the program is strictly adhered to. The maintenance program afterwards should then become your new way of eating as it is effective in keeping away those extra kilos that tends to creep up on you when you are not looking.

Modern living is busy and fast. Make time available to take care of your body and to be secure in the knowledge that you look as good as you can by indulging in some of these treatments. To look and feel good makes a person feel a lot more confident and gives you the self assurance to walk ahead of the crowd. Keep walking!
