Skin Health & Skin Care
Mr Banwell and his team at The Banwell Clinic in Sussex, Kent & Harley Street, London are considered international experts in skin health, photoprotection and state of the art skin treatments. We believe that healthy skin and good quality skin care regimes are essential to look and feel good. It is all about skin health and choosing innovative, bespoke, affordable yet powerful anti-ageing skin care and skin treatments. Please feel free to browse this website but further information can also be found on our cosmetic skin clinic site www.banwellclinic.com.
Well-being and Nutrition
Lack of exercise, poor dietary habits, stress, smoking and excessive sun exposure can all lead to poor skin health. We therefore aim to help identify and rectify many of these problems and focus on individualised skin assessments to produce a bespoke, personalized skin care routine. However, we also put great emphasis on making holistic lifestyle changes for the body in general and we have access to dietitians, life coaches, personal trainers, psychologists and massage therapists to help address these needs too.
In particular, Mr Banwell is a big advocate of healthy eating and the importance of nutrition in general health and well-being as well as its role as part of the cosmetic surgical journey. Mr Banwell is the first plastic surgeon in the UK to focus on nutrigenomics and epigenetics as part of a wellbeing programme for all his patients including those undergoing cosmetic surgery as well as general reconstructive work. He has teamed up with a rising star of nutrition and nutrigenomics in the UK – Rachel Clarkson – to offer comprehensive nutritional support and genetic analysis. Please do ask Mr Banwell’s team for further information or click here for further information www.thednadietitian.co.uk. As a Registered Dietitian, the DNA Dietitian offers a VIP service for all your nutritional needs and Mr Banwell would thoroughly recommend booking for a consultation.
Importance of medical grade skin care
Use of over the counter beauty skin care and skin care products can improve your skin but we know that higher quality cosmeceutical (medical-grade) products really do make a difference and the scientific literature supports this. Cosmeceuticals contain higher levels of active ingredients which Mr Banwell and his expert team can discuss with you in person as well as the various approaches and strategies for your particular skin type/concern.
Cosmeceuticals & skin care ingredients
It is sometimes difficult for the consumer nowadays to understand ingredients as we are bombarded with a variety of complex terms such as ‘anti-oxidants’ ‘ceramides’ immuneprotectants’, ‘DNA repair enzymes’, ‘hydroxyacids’, ‘peptides’, ‘neuropeptides’, ‘botanics’, ‘lactic acid’ ‘glycolic acid’, ‘phytobotanicals’ and such like and it may often be difficult to decipher what they all mean. Some of these are important and some not so – this is where Mr Banwell and his team come in. We want to give you beautiful, vibrant-looking skin! But remember – you don’t get fit and look good by going to the gym once only. You need to commit and work hard to get that skin looking good! With regular use, these advanced anti-ageing skin care products can lead to beautiful-looking, luminous skin and a clear complexion.
Mr Banwell has travelled the world in order to curate the best skin care products with impeccable credentials. He now uses and recommends exclusive anti ageing skin care product ranges from Australia to treat fine lines, wrinkles, photodamage, sallow skin, pigmentation, acne and sensitive skins.
Epigenetics and Skin Care
Mr Banwell has lectured worldwide on the concept of epigenetics and indeed how good quality medical skin care can effect change on a cellular level in the skin.
The previous mantra was that our genes were NOT subject to change – ie. what we are born with cannot be changed . However, our genes are, in fact, highly influenceable and what we do throughout life has a dramatic effect on whether that condition manifests itself. This science of what lies “above our genes” is called EPIGENETICS.
Most epigenetic research comes to us from cancer research, where we have been able to isolate the genes that make some of us more susceptible to cancer, and this has enables us to work on how these cancer genes can be “switched off”. Our general health and lifestyle choice have an enormous influence too. From cancer research, we have now moved into the fields of health and beauty, where epigenetics enables us to have more control over the way we look and age by influencing “gene expression”.
We now know that there are several modifiers of epigenetic change including environmental chemicals an dpollutants, age, pharmaceutical drugs, stress, diet and most importantly perhaps, cosmeceutical skin care. High end medical grade skin care therefore has enormous potential to effect epigenetic change and one of the leaders in the world in this field is Rationale skin care from Australia.
