It is with sad hearts that we bid farewell to Caryn at the end of November. Caryn was an integral part of the team and has joined her husband in his business. Caryn will be dearly missed and wish her all the best for the future.
Joining us from the Umhlanga branch as assistant manager is Cailee Smith. Cailee’s passion for the industry shines through in her work as she loves to see the transformations that patients achieve with the treatments that we offer. We welcome Cailee to the team and know that her experience and team spirit will greatly benefit the branch.
We recently celebrated the birthday of medical therapist Kovanna Naidu, and much fun was had by all. Thank you to all the patients who contributed to the love she felt on her special day.
As a team we love to visit our favourite local coffee spot to catch up with each other. Humble Coffee is not only a great place to visit to get your caffeine fix, it is also wonderful just to take a moment for yourself.
Founder and medical director of Skin Renewal, Dr Maureen Allem, became a grandmother to her daughter, Catherine’s precious baby girl, Amelia, earlier this year. This time gave Dr Maureen the opportunity to reflect on the special relationship she has with her own mom, Rema, who provided a tertiary education to all nine of her children, even after becoming a widow at the young age of 47. It is clear where Dr Maureen’s strength and determination stems from, and we would like to congratulate Catherine and Dr Maureen on this momentous occasion in their lives.
Giving back to the wider community is at the core of the Skin Renewal ethos. Nationally, Skin Renewal supports three charities, and The Seed Fund and its beneficiaries have firmly entrenched themselves in the hearts of the Skin Renewal Kwazulu Natal team. It is imperative that we uplift out communities in a positive and sustainable manner.
Just because it wasn’t possible for the company to physically get together for this year’s CSI initiative, it was no reason to let the opportunity pass us by. All 16 branches participated in a virtual food parcel packaging effort, with each branch packing 80 parcels. Each parcel consisted of nutritious ingredients, providing a meal for four when mixed with one liter of water. On completion 5,120 beneficiaries were fed in the three different charities supported nationally.
Our team continue to make sandwiches for the Wednesday homework club each week. For more information on the work we do with The Seed Fund and how you can be involved follow our dedicated Skin Renewal Facebook page - Renewed Hope ZA.
Therapist Tasmin's go to product to treat Hyperpigmentation is the Cosmelan 2 cream. It is an effective topical product to address pigmentation, dark spots and is particularly effective with Melasma (hormonal pigmentation). It contains a blend of potent active ingredients that work together to lighten the dark marks on the skin. With regular and continued use, the appearance of dark spots is dramatically improved and, in some cases, completely eradicated.
With everyone preparing for the holiday season, one can never be too prepared when it comes to sun protection, and therefore we highly recommend that topical sunscreen such as the Heliocare range, is further supported by Vitamin D3, an oral Vitamin D supplement that protects the skin internally. These products as well as a range of skin, health and body products are available at the branch, or can be ordered on Skin Renewal’s online store.
We wish you and your family ongoing wellness and safety, as well as a joyous festive season and a prosperous new year, and look forward to welcoming you to our branch soon.
