Delaying the signs of ageing – By Dr. med. Erich Schulte, founder of QMS Medicosmetics

Is there any way in which we can delay the signs of ageing and turn back time through just diet and lifestyle alone?

“The short answer is ‘Yes, you can’. A healthy lifestyle and diet can most definitely improve the health and quality of the skin, which then results in a delay in the signs of ageing.  But you need to recognise that there are limits with this method, and for best results you need to find ways to boost your skin’s health from within. Nutricosmetics are an excellent way to do this: I specifically formulated Intravital to recondition, regenerate and protect the skin.

“Always remember: enjoy life in moderation and you will look younger longer.”

What are the main contributing factors of ageing that we bring on ourselves?

“Our lifestyle is the main contributor to how our skin ages. Skin reacts to its external environment and our modern day living is harsh – whether dehydration from air-conditioning or pollutants in the atmosphere, all can detrimentally impact the skin.

How important are supplements?

“This is skin regeneration from within. Our diet is generally lacking in certain vital minerals and vitamins, and, as we age, absorption also becomes more difficult. I do recommend Intravital, as each capsule contains the necessary vitamins to recondition, regenerate and protect the natural skin structure from within. The hydrolysed collagen is effectively absorbed and skin quality is improved.

What have been the biggest scientific breakthroughs in terms of anti-ageing skincare and techniques, including injections/pills/salon treatments?

“Science is an absolute passion of mine, and early on in my career as a surgeon I understood the importance of revolutionising scientific techniques to improve how skincare performs.” He says, “The future of skincare is improving the delivery system and techniques to enhance the metabolism of ingredients in both products and treatments. My top three breakthroughs are: the conditioning of natural soluble collagens to be able to penetrate the skin, stem cell technology, and electro-galvanic transportations (electric micro-current technology) through the skin barrier without destroying the protective functions.

“Collagen is the most important protein in your skin, 65% of the body’s proteins are collagen and they are responsible for the elasticity of the skin.  As a trauma and cosmetic surgeon I researched wound-healing and found collagen to be highly significant.

This led me to develop a method to condition natural soluble collagens so that they can be re-absorbed into the epidermis and be applied topically to the skin, thereby allowing skin regeneration.”

What is the most effective turn-back-time and anti-ageing regime /treatment short of cosmetic surgery?

“Tissue augmentation with the help of skin fillers will have an immediate impact on the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

“For a long-term transformation getting a regime in place is key, an optimum skincare regeneration system would be to commence a collagen replacement therapy.  Collagen is critical for the moisturising process; it is the protein that keeps skin’s tone, youth and elasticity.  The skin’s production of collagen decreases as the skin ages, leading to a loss of moisture and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  With QMS Medicosmetics you can help reverse the appearance of ageing by addressing the underlying cause – loss of collagen.

What is the optimum age to start an anti-ageing regime  and what can we realistically expect to achieve?

“From thirty is a good age to start, as from 25 our collagen production starts to decrease, and if you get into a good regime by 30 then you can take around five years off your age. If you start young you can definitely stay young.”
