The Healthy Aging Clinic, head up by Dr. Duncan Carmichael, is an integrative medical clinic that combines health, wellness and skin aesthetic treatments to optimise your health. Dr Carmichael also travels to four other clinics in Dorset and Hampshire, to offer aesthetic treatments.

Duncan left the world of illness long ago to focus his efforts on his passion for wellness. Responding to a disease is much less potent than empowering someone to understand their health and prevent the diseases from occurring.
- 2000

After running his own GP practice in Cape Town, he trained in acupuncture and basic homeopathy before leaving for the UK in 2000. There he completed his advanced GP training (MRCGP) and went on to study aesthetic medicine (botox, fillers and skin health).

2005 - 2008

In 2005 he returned to Cape Town to open the Anti-Aging Clinic in Sea Point. He studied further in Brussels in anti-aging medicine (hormone balancing in the aging population) and nutrition. From 2008 he started lecturing in aesthetic and anti-aging medicine.

He is also a trainer for Allergan, is on the executive board of the Aesthetic and Anti-Aging Medical Society of South Africa (AAMSSA), and previously lectured for the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine (AAAM).

2014 - current

In 2014 the South African clinic changed its name to The Institute of Healthy Aging (IHASA) and extended its range of treatment options. The industry of health is ever-changing, and Duncan views the clinic’s main challenge as being able to lead with key innovations and explain in simple terms which are most appropriate for each client.

In 2018 Dr. Duncan released his book Younger for Longer in which he has compiled two decades of knowledge in an accessible yet authoritative book that explains:

Why our lifestyle choices are such a key part of healthy aging for men and women;

Your body is far more than the sum of its component parts. Younger for Longer outlines these, shows how they interact and explains what actions to take – and why doing so will help you achieve your best possible life.

There is a better way to age. This book will show you how. Get your copy from Amazon here.
