Our incredible location, nestled in the heart of the city, provides the perfect viewing spot from which to experience the different moods the change of season brings. Some days the low sounding of the foghorn can be heard as the fog rolls across the bay; on other days, we love to stand on our beautiful outdoor balcony and witness the bright pink sky against the silhouette of Table Mountain.
Skin Renewal Cape Quarter is a sanctuary for patients to carve out a space in their lives to achieve their skincare goals and make time for themselves. Whether you enjoy the selection of Nespresso coffee or our music, from the moment you step into our branch, we hope you feel a part of the Skin Renewal family. We have lots to share, from our passions and pass times to what we love about our ‘hood, from our doctors’ top tips to the most share-worthy trending treatments.
So, grab a cuppa, sit back and have a read…
You may have noticed that we are sporting our new branding! We are sure that you love it as much as we do. The logo embodies the essence of Skin Renewal, the perfect balance between science and glamour.
Have you checked out the monthly market? You should.
The Village Market @ Cape Quarter is a unique European Lifestyle Market that supports local goods and produces, striving to be as organic and environmentally friendly as possible. The monthly market is worth a calendar alert in your diary, from artisanal, home-baked and home-brewed goodness to the freshest pantry cupboard finds, and cosy knits your grandmother and Instagram feed will approve of.
Drift on over to Drifters
Leading a holistic lifestyle is integral to all Skin Renewal journeys. There’s no reason to stop exploring the incredible attractions on our doorstep just because Winter’s here and the colder weather has you considering hibernating. We believe there is no such thing as bad weather, just wrong clothes, and @driftersxtremesports is the perfect place to get yourself kitted out for outdoor pursuits.
Before you take a nap, head to NAP
A soft, fluffy throw is an essential item for cuddling up to read a book, do a Wordle for the day or simply tuck into Netflix and chill, warmly snuggled up. We love the selection of throws and scatters available just two floors down from us @nap.stores, and we’re sure you will too!
We’ve got our very own CLICKS
Clicks is synonymous with convenience and being able to pop in and get your toiletry must-haves – and a couple of impulse buys while you’re at it. We’re loving that Clicks has moved into our ‘hood on the 1st floor. So, go on, check out the latest addition to the @clickssouthafrica family after your next appointment.
And if you have time for a wonder around our broader precinct, you will see much is abuzz with the décor and furniture offerings as Decorex (@decorexafrica) preparation is well under way.
If you have a good cup of Bootleggers coffee on hand stroll, on over to SODA (@soda_custom) or Wunders (@wunders_) and get a sneak peak of the latest in design.
What we're up to out of the office
One may argue that the team of excellence at Cape Quarter have a shared passion for the outdoors. Kayla has been mastering the art of natural horsemanship, and in doing so, has built an incredible bond with her young horse, Tawny.
Claire has taken on a new challenge in training her own young horse (fresh off the racetrack) to compete in Eventing – a three phase discipline involving Dressage, Show Jumping and Cross Country. First event? The One Day Eventing at Sandringham on 11 June.
Another sport which involves both speed and jumps is Enduro. If you’re a novice interested in this sport or a passionate and knowledgeable pro, chat with Motorcross enthusiast Storm the next time you visit our branch.
Speaking of being passionate and knowledgeable, did you know that Riekardt is an avid and accomplished photographer? Well, you do now! He focuses on Retro-Film photography, which is not just a conversation starter with this member of our dream team, but we must say that once you get him started talking about it, it may be tricky to get him to stop. Kind of like if you get any one of us talking about skincare!
Dr Ross Connor recently joined Cape Town’s most prestigious race, the Two Oceans half (21.1km).
One of the most spectacular routes around the Cape Peninsula (and often voted as the most breathtaking course in the world), bragging rights go to Dr Ross who managed to finish in a mighty 1hr47 minutes.
Speaking of showing love, the latest issue of the Fair Lady mag did a fab feature on our very own Dr Dom. We loved reading what she had to say to contributor Charis Torrance about Profhilo Bio Re-modelling and the smoother, plumper skin this treatment achieves.
Winter is the perfect time to have more invasive treatments as your skin is able to recover without the harsh rays of the sun, which is why Claire recently enjoyed a Limelight™ Facial. This new, non-invasive, exceptionally effective skin rejuvenation treatment which can be customised for different skin tones and ageing skin conditions.
The bonus? Not just does it get incredible results (see the pics for proof), but it promises minimal discomfort too.
SkinCeuticals Resveratrol BE is a highly active treatment that contains pure and stable Resveratrol for optimum performance.
This serum restores your skin while you are sleeping, making it best used in the evenings. “I use it every night, waking up to a smooth, radiant glowing skin.” says Storm.
“The antioxidant in this product neutralises free radicals, improves my skin’s ability to fight future environmental damage and repairs damaged fibres while I get my beauty sleep.”
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 (Poly-L-Lactic Acid) 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.
Why should you consider Sculptra?
From our mid-twenties, most of us experience a decrease in collagen production of about 1%. By our mid-40s we’re looking at that percentage having steadily increased, year on year, to 25%. So, while you may not notice the decrease of collagen in your 20s, by the time you’re nearing 50, your skin’s mid-life crisis could be well – and noticeably – underway.
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.
To find out more about our Sculptra treatments, chat to your therapist or doctor at your next appointment.
On Friday, 6 May we welcomed the opportunity to be a part of the Reach for a Dream Slipper Day.
