Dr Xenephin Ludick
Dr Xen's journey started when he spent one year in the USA (post matriculation) to study medicine there. He was accepted into 3 Universities / Colleges but opted to come back to South Africa as he believed that the South African medical degree was world class and offered a massive amount of practical experience not seen anywhere in the world.
He completed his MBChB at the University of Pretoria in 2004 and did his government responsibilities in Cape Town and Boksburg before moving into private practice.
He became a partner in one of Johannesburg's premier ER units as well as a private practice in the esteemed Melrose Arch. It was there in The Arch Medical and Melrose Aesthetic Centre where he developed his passion for Anti-Aging and Preventative Medicine. He realized that medicine is in its nature, a retrospective science. Once a problem occurs, it is treated. He believes that it would make more sense to be proactive and increase ones health-span rather than waiting for problems to arise.
During the same time, Dr Xen was a partner in a Coffee Shop in the Bedfordview area. Here he developed his passion for business and client care on a different level than what medicine provides.
In 2010 Dr Xen joined Skin & Body Renewal where he spent 7 years of his professional career before joining the team at The Aesthetics Centre and, subsequently, saw his dream of helping create a world-class Anti-aging Centre with a like-minded partner like Dr Burt Jooste which became a reality at the Longevity Centre.
