A conservative, but effective, outlook on ageing

Renewal Institute’s Michelle Blom recommends a combination of allopathic medicine and functional medicine to ageing holistically.

Doctor Michelle Blom highly recommends the four pillars to best achieve the most natural results. These include injectables, in-house treatments, products and supplements.

“Prevention is always better than cure. Doing one thing in isolation would leave a big gap in the potential solution to slowing down the ageing process as a more holistic approach definitely leads to better results,” she says.

While no one can stop the ageing process, Dr Blom is one of the aesthetic experts who is constantly aiming to give patients the best possible service and advice about treatments and home care products. One of the ways she does this is by encouraging a retinol and a topical Vitamin C to assist with the process.

“Although each patient receives a customised package to treat their specific concerns, address their unique needs, and assist in obtaining the desired goals and results, my number one go-to for prevention and cure of fine lines and wrinkles is Vitamin C, Botox and microneedling, which is an excellent method of stimulating collagen.”

Dr Blom regularly attends seminars and courses to ensure she’s on par with the latest technologies in her field.

“A non-surgical solution is just another form of art that can be appreciated in the medical world. It is an evolving field that will never be static. And the Renewal Institute continues to come up with safer techniques/procedures for patients, without shying away from what already works.”
