It is during tough times that we as communities and a country get to see just how strong we truly are. In current times we are being tested on all fronts, but we will prevail and our beautiful country will continue, because we are united in the goal to overcome.
As we enter the second half of 2021, we wish you strength, happiness and above all, great health! As a community, we are here for you, now more than ever. Our team is always ready to connect, so let us know what you need during this time and in the months to come.
As a company, we continue to take extensive safety precautions to ensure that our patients experience the best care possible. Here is an outline of what you can expect when you visit us.
We are thrilled to welcome Samantha, our Assistant Manager, who joined our branch in March. Originally from Kimberley, Samantha worked at the West Rand Branch as a therapist before joining us in Durban. She has already become a part of our family, and we look forward to introducing you to her soon. Samantha recently got married to her handsome sweetheart of many years, and we wish her all the very best for a special and happy partnership.
Tasmin Leighton, our gorgeous medical therapist, recently graduated Cum Laude after completing her honours in Medical Aesthetics. We are most proud of her and her achievements.
Kovanna Naidu, our beloved medical therapist also got married this year, making it the year to celebrate marriage at the Durban branch! Look at how stunning she was as a traditional Hindu bride.
Esme Pretorius, our favourite nurse celebrated a birthday last month, and as always, we spoilt her with her favourite cake (she always spoils us with her home-baked goodies).
Victor, our leader, celebrated his birthday as well, and we were blessed to share a special dinner with him. No words can convey how grateful we are to be a part of this wonderful team.
We strive for the best skin outcomes for our patients, and we love seeing how the face responds to a series of treatments.
Dr Caitlin Von Badeleben consulted with a patient who wanted to get rid of her crow’s feet/ laughter lines on the sides of her eyes. Dr Caitlin did botulinum toxin A injections, blocking out signals from the nerves to the muscles. We will continue walking a maintenance journey with her to see how treatments progressively create better-looking skin. The picture below demonstrates the results that you can achieve after just two weeks post-injectables.
In light of the importance of building strong immunity during these times, IV infusions have never been more popular – or more important. A variety of potent vitamin, mineral and anti-oxidant combinations are available, delivered straight into the bloodstream for maximum absorption. This means the bonus of bypassing the digestive system and getting all the direct health benefits your system needs. Make sure to have a look at our special IV Infusions and Immune Boosting Packages.
We are loving Heliocare Pigment Solution Fluid SPF50
This SPF is a very high and broad-spectrum photoprotector that guards against the four types of radiation - UVB-UVA-VL-IRA - including blue light emitted by digital devices. Its antipollution and depigmenting systems help to prevent and correct hyperpigmentation and sunspots. It also contains nude pigments for a more even skin tone. Its ultra-light texture, perfect for all skin types, leaves a smooth and velvety finish once applied. Water and sweat-resistant, it doesn’t irritate the eyes.
It meets the highest photoprotection standards, formulated with carefully selected filters and Fern block®+ protecting against the four types of radiation (UVB, UVA, Visible light and Infrared). It has an advanced activity against UVA radiation, visible light, and blue light for the optimal prevention of sun hyperpigmentation. In addition, Fern block®+ together with repairing and antioxidant actives, counteract and fix sun damage. It is a high-skin tolerance SPF, tested under dermatological and ophthalmological control; this product ,and a range of skin, health and body products are available at the branch. They can also be ordered via Skin Renewal’s online store. With the increase we’ve experienced in online orders, we make sure to pack each box for delivery or collection with extra love.
We have collaborated with three new influencers, so watch out for them having some serious skin treatments with us this year. Our social media trio include: Vic Naidoo (East Coast Radio DJ), Jenna Fryer (Makeup Artist & Blogger) and Prince Thabs (major influencer, blogger and model).
Skin Renewal KZN chose to support The Seed Fund as the benefactor of our 2021 charity drive. The Seed Fund is a non-profit organisation aiming to awaken the dreams of an improved future in each poverty-stricken child at the Malacca Road informal settlement in Durban North.
On 14 June 2020, the settlement was hit hard by a devastating fire, which destroyed most residents homes. We joined in the effort to deal with the aftermath of this disaster by collecting blankets, clothing and food, and we are raising funds to assist with the rebuilding of homes for this community.
Our first fundraising campaign that we ran this year was generously sponsored to us by Drakensberg Gardens and Resorts. We held a raffle, and our winner of a weekend getaway was won by one of our patients Wenona Wiggill pictured below.
All funds raised get used towards sponsoring meals or buying much-needed supplies for the children.
Our next initiative is further fundraising for outdoor play equipment for the schoolyard. We have been sponsored a fantastic hamper from SkinCeuticals, Lamelle and Neostrata valued at over R6000.
Your entry for the raffle will go towards raising sponsorship for the Seeds Funds school buddy system.
Our aim is to sponsor as many children with the proceeds as possible.
They need R250 per month to help with the following necessities:
- School transport;
- Extramural activities/outings;
- A small contribution to school fees at the end of the year
Your entry equals a chance of winning and supporting the community. To become a part of our School Buddy Sponsorship Programme, contact us here email@example.com
Not only are you helping, but also stand a chance to win this amazing hamper.
