From a new look throughout our branch to new faces in-branch, from personal milestones to professional recommendations, from giving you the best in aesthetics to giving back, this month we’ve got lots to chat about and bring you up to speed on. So, sit back, relax, pour yourself a coffee or – as the season calls for – a hot chocolate and let’s get going…
If you’ve popped in recently, you would have noticed our new look and we’re sure you’ll agree that your favourite Skin Renewal branch is looking better than ever. We’re always incredibly proud to be a part of the Skin Renewal family, and we know that the group-wide rebrand is just the start of what promises to be an exciting new chapter of industry-leading innovation.
We are extremely proud of our new logo which represents the essence of our brand - a fine blend of science and glamour
Welcome, Dr Janene!
While we are very sad to say goodbye to Dr Helenka who is headed “back to her roots” to the Mother City to join our Cape Town branches, we are very happy to welcome the lovely Dr Janene Veenendaal to our team.
Born and raised in Gauteng, Dr Janene completed her medical degree at the University of Pretoria before doing her internship at Steve Biko Academic Hospital. Passionate about skincare, interestingly she was a Skin Renewal patient who so resonated with the holistic approach taken by our team of doctors towards skin and aesthetics that she wanted to be a part of the team, too.
A lifelong learner, Dr Janene values the fact that Dr Maureen Allem, Skin Renewal Founder and Medical Director, provides ongoing training for all Skin Renewal doctors ensuring that they are au fait and abreast of the latest in international aesthetics techniques and trends.
A multi-faceted woman when not at a Skin Renewal clinic, she enjoys gardening, reading and watching motorsport. Dr Janene is always up for a challenge and loves to travel and explore new destinations. She looks forward to welcoming you and creating a skincare journey that achieves the goals you desire.
It gives us great joy to officially welcome Nstakisi Baloyi who has fitted in right in from the start. Our patients connected with her immediately and if how much we love her already is anything to go by, she’ll hopefully be with us for many, many years to come.
Ntsakisi is a qualified Cosmetologist graduate from Ekurhuleni West College. Upon completion, she was not yet satisfied and furthered her studies in Somatology, where she graduated from the University of Johannesburg.
She has a demonstrated history of working in the industry for over two decades, in various roles within the Health, Skincare, FMCG and Aesthetics industry. Her journey included various salons and spas where she filled the roles of therapist, spa manager, as well as operations manager. She also acquired other skills as an Assessor & Occupational Health & Safety Officer.
Having recently participated in a SkinCeuticals initiative, which ran across all 18 of the Skin Renewal branches nationwide, we’re proud to have come out tops – and been awarded R10,000.00 to put towards a charity of our choice. Our charity of choice? Abraham Kriel children’s home – a place near and dear to our hearts for a while now.
There are 10,000 reasons for the big smiles under our masks!
Our donation included tracksuits for the boys, groceries, and toiletries. We are looking to donate some sporting goods next as we identified a need during our visit. Watch this space for our next visit as we cannot wait to go back!
We spent a day at the children’s home celebrating the opportunity to give them the time they crave... a reminder to us that one of the most valuable gifts one can give is that of time
We’ve all heard the saying, “Summer bodies are made in Winter”, which is why, this month, we’re putting our current favourite treatment, Endymed, in the spotlight.
If you’re self-conscious about cellulite or stretchmarks, a series of Endymed treatments over the colder months can turn up the heat in the self-confidence department come summer.
By making use of focused, multi-source, phase-controlled 3DEEP™ RF technology, the ENDYMED PRO manipulates the interaction between multiple RF energy fields, combining six RF generators to deliver really focused RF energy. If that sounds fancy and really clever, that’s because it is. It’s the really clever controlled 3-dimensional thermal pattern created in the skin at three different depths that enables the ENDYMED PRO to replace a ‘problem area’ with clinically-proven results.
Endymed offers four unique treatments for the face and body, covering everything from rejuvenation to scar repair and even body contouring.
ENDYMED FSR Fractional Ablative RF reduces the appearance of wrinkles, scarring, and stretchmarks, and delivers targeted skin tightening.
ENDYMED Contour reduces and improves appearance of cellulite while tightening skin in any area of the body and contouring the body.
ENDYMED Intensif RF Micro-needling treats acne, injury or surgical scarring; deep ingrained lines and wrinkles; lax or sagging skin; rough skin texture and dilated pores.
ENDYMED Facial 3 DEEP RF Tightening reduces the appearance of facial wrinkles; lifts and tightens skin in the eye, jawline, chin and neck areas; and delivers facial rejuvenation.
Industry-leading technology in the hands of our world-class therapists – just the way we like it!
This machine can customise treatments to your unique needs, at the flip of a switch and the click of a new handpiece, so, whatever’s preventing you from wearing the shorts, taking your body to the beach or living your best life, there’s a safe, effective, no downtime treatment for EVERY body.
Big School for Caleb!
Our branch leader, Janet, is always a proud mommy but she’s particularly proud this year as her baby boy is now a Grade 1. An avid gardener, Caleb, has eye for renovations too – always ready with an opinion or two about what he thinks will look good where.
Wedding Bells for Maryke!
Recently, our branch co-leader, Maryke, tied the knot and said “I do!” in a beautiful setting, alongside the Vaal River. It was an intimate celebration and truly special day – everyone in attendance could feel the love! We love that Maryke takes every chance she gets to mention her new surname so please greet her as Mrs Mann the next time you see her, it’ll make her day.
Pitter Patter for Rene!
Senior therapist, Rene, is expecting baby number two and we’re delighted to announce that the “pink or blue?” question has been answered *insert drum roll* – It’s a boy!
A Beach Break for Durea!
We just loved the fabulouse pics Durea’s brought back from her well-deserved beach holiday. As you can see, she had a wonderful time in Durban – from fine dining and yacht outings. It’s no wonder she came back relaxed, recharged and feeling (and looking) revived.
Always abreast of the most innovative and cutting-edge trends in the world of aesthetics, we’re proud to officially announce that Sculptra – “The talk of the aesthetics industry town” – is now available at all of our 18 branches, nationwide.
Why are we so excited about this addition to our treatment menu?
1. Sculptra is the first and only FDA-approved PLLA facial injectable treatment proven to stimulate the skin’s own collagen production.
2. Sculptra works gradually to rebuild collagen; restoring the skin’s scaffolding from the inside out.
3. As an injectable, Sculptra delivers a substantial collagen boost at the deepest layers of your skin.
4. A series of just three Sculptra treatments improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, delivering an overall more youthful-looking appearance.
5. 94% of Sculptra clients agree that their treatment results look natural two years after treatment.
So, if you want to target the underlying causes of facial ageing proactively, not just address the symptoms reactively, a series of Sculptra treatments is the answer!

Skin Renewal’s vision is to facilitate infinite transformation to all the lives we touch, and, this year, we’re partnering with Komani to transform young lives by helping to stop period poverty.
Every year 10,000 girls miss school due to them not having proper sanitary wear.
Komani produces high quality reusable, washable sanitary pads which are both sustainable and environmentally friendly. We aim to donate 1000 packs of reusable sanitary packs to each of the charities we support. For every 100 packs we receive, we will spend time with the beneficiaries educating the recipients on personal hygiene and how to use and maintain their sanitary pack. The cost of a pack is just R150 and the pads can last up to three years; requiring only 6 litres of water to wash the pads for the duration of a menstrual cycle.
Our patients have been so amazing in supporting this worthy cause and we appreciate every single contribution.
Congratulations to Leandri Vala who was the winner of our in-branch initiative to drive donations – an “Every donation gets an entry” mystery prize giveaway!

This month’s product recommendation, courtesy of the lovely Janice.
“The Neostrata Tri-Lifting Therapy Serum is my current favourite product and an absolute must-have especially during our cold winter months. Use this serum at night, underneath your moisturiser. I love how it plumps and softens fine lines.”
