So you can feel your youthful self

Aging is an unavoidable process, and as we grow older, our skin naturally undergoes changes. Various factors like exposure to sunlight, pollution, smoking, and dietary habits can exacerbate these changes, leading to skin that is drier and less flexible. Common signs of aging skin encompass the emergence of fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation irregularities, more prominent pores, and a lackluster complexion.

Retinoids, which are prescription medications derived from Vitamin A, have been scientifically validated to not only slow down the aging process but also reverse its effects. These compounds function by bolstering the thickness of the outer layer of the skin (epidermis), diminishing pigmentation problems, and rejuvenating skin cells damaged by the sun. Furthermore, they prompt the synthesis of essential proteins such as collagen, elastin, and glycosaminoglycans, which contribute to the skin’s plumpness and resilience.

Anti-Aging

What is anti-aging?

“Anti-aging” means ways to look and feel younger by taking care of your skin and body. This includes using special creams and treatments for wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging on the skin. It also involves things like eating healthy foods, staying hydrated, exercising, getting enough sleep, and managing stress.

What are the symptoms of aging?

The symptoms of aging can vary from person to person and may include:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines: as the skin loses elasticity and moisture over time, wrinkles and fine lines can develop, particularly on the face, neck, and hands.
  • Sagging skin: loss of collagen and elastin can lead to sagging or drooping skin, especially around the jawline, cheeks, and eyelids.
  • Age spots and pigmentation: excessive sun exposure over the years can cause the development of age spots, freckles, and uneven pigmentation on the skin.
What treatments are available?

Prescription-based retinoids are one of the most effective ingredients available to dermatologists when it comes to treating aging skin. It works by slowing the progression of fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation, and can reduce the appearance of existing ones too, giving the effect of ‘reversing aging’.

Retinoids work by:

  • Thickening the epidermis
  • Reducing pigmentation
  • Restoring sun-damaged skin cells
  • Increases collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycans production, plumping the skin
How long does it take to see results?
Patience and consistency is the key to using prescription-based anti-ageing treatments. It will usually take between 2-6 months to see significant results. Using prescription retinoids in combination with other active ingredients will increase the visual effectiveness of your skincare routine.

If you are new to using prescription retinoids, your assigned Partner Doctor will likely advise you should start using it once a week to build up a tolerance before using it nightly.

Anti-Aging Treatment

When should I get treatment?

Starting early is key! It’s suggested to begin integrating anti-aging ingredients into your skincare regimen during your 20s and 30s, before noticeable wrinkles set in.

Can anti-aging be treated online?
Indeed, our Partner Doctors can recommend potent retinoids through an online consultation to address signs of aging in the skin.

At Contro, individuals aged 18 and above have the opportunity to engage in a virtual discussion with one of our Partner Doctors to receive prescribed treatment conveniently delivered to them.

It’s important to recognize that our Partner Doctors are unable to provide treatment to pregnant or breastfeeding individuals due to potential conflicts with the medication. They also maintain the authority to decline treatment based on their professional medical expertise and ethical considerations.

How much does Contro’s anti-aging treatment service cost?
Our service fee is R150 per month. This spreads out the cost of your doctor’s consultation and prescription fees over periods of six months at a time. We also provide free delivery within that fee to anywhere in the country.

All customers will pay our R150 service fee each month.

Cash customers will additionally be charged for the cost of their prescribed medication each month. The price of hair loss treatment can vary and will depend on which medication and strength your assigned Partner Doctor prescribes you. The total subscription cost for cash customers is between R300 – R540 p/m depending on your prescribed medication.

The total subscription cost for medical aid customers is R150 p/m.

Does Contro replace my primary doctor?

No, Contro’s service offering does not replace your primary doctor. We save you time and money by offering you a supplementary online delivery and subscription service, and therefore your assigned Partner Doctor does not replace your primary doctor or GP, and is not responsible for your ongoing primary care.

Can I claim through my medical aid?

Yes, but only for your medication costs. Medical aid customers are still required to pay our service fees. We are working hard to get the medical aids to cover this fee.

Our Partner Pharmacy will claim your medication with your medical aid scheme. If your claim is unsuccessful we will reach out to you and confirm you are happy to pay privately for your medication instead.

Please note, that many medical aids consider this medication ‘aesthetic’ rather than ‘essential’, and may therefore not cover your prescribed medication. If you are unsure whether your medical aid scheme will cover your prescribed medication, or allow you to use your savings to pay for your prescribed medication, please contact your provider.

When and how is my medication delivered to me?

Our Partner Doctors offer consultations Monday – Friday excluding public holidays. We aim to offer you a consultation within 2 business days.

After a successful consultation, your assigned Partner Doctor will produce a prescription for your prescribed medication which is sent electronically to our Partner Pharmacy. Our Partner Pharmacy will contact you telephonically to confirm your details and delivery address and will make a claim on your behalf if you have provided medical aid details.

Their pharmacy team will prepare and despatch your medication to your chosen delivery address. Once your order has been despatched, delivery time is 1-3 business days.

You will receive an SMS from our Partner Pharmacy to notify you that your medication has been despatched. This will contain a tracking number that will allow you to track your medication with the applicable courier service here.

Please note, that you cannot change your delivery address once payment has been processed and your prescription has been sent to our Partner Pharmacy for processing.
