Greetings from all of us at our Durban branch! It is with so much excitement that we welcome you to our new home in Florida Road. We have lots of news to share with you in this newsletter, from industry-first treatments, to truly remarkable before and afters, from a visit from our regional manager, to milestone celebrations with our team, so get comfy, take a seat and have a read…
The Affluence Black Polo event recently took place in Ballito. As the Skin Renewal team, it gave us a fantastic opportunity to spend 48 hours in person with a much-appreciated extension of our Skin Renewal family – our ‘glow-getting’ influencers and accomplished content creators.
A weekend of fashion and polo provided the backdrop for us to get to know each other outside of the realms of social media, put glowing faces to Instagram handles and experience, first-hand, the charismatic and hard-working, trend-setting presences behind the social media presences we know and love to share.
Always at the forefront of the aesthetic industry and marketing trends, we know all too well the growing importance – and relevance – of relatable, genuine influencer marketing. This is why we’re incredibly proud to associate our brand with the personal brands of some of the country’s leading influencers, both established and up-and-coming.
It was a weekend of wonderful conversation, quality connections, insightful discussions and, of course, many skillfully taken selfies! As firm believers in the fact that teamwork makes the dream work, we want to take this opportunity to thank our influencer team for not only being the faces of Skin Renewal but the voices, too.
We are incredibly proud of our refurbished premises, the beautiful old home which has been lovingly restored and adapted to be the home (sweet home) of Skin Renewal Durban.
As with everything we do, no detail has been overlooked to ensure that our branch is as welcoming and warm a space to be in for our team as it is for you, our extended Skin Renewal family to visit, and spend time in. When you pop in for your treatment, be sure to look out for the original wooden floors wooden floors incorporated into the new tiling; the old pressed ceilings made new and contemporary with the new drop ceiling element; and the home’s original brightly coloured pane glass door which makes for a truly special first impression of our branch.
Coupled with the group-wide rebrand of Skin Renewal’s 18 branches, nationwide, we’re sure you’ll agree that our Durban address has never looked better!
We think our smiles say it all! Our Durban team has never been happier to welcome you in-branch and we’re so proud that our space reflects our ‘home away from home’ approach to helping you achieve your personal skin goals. Also, the big windows and high ceilings make for an influx of natural light, perfect for spontaneous team pics and post-treatment selfies. Just saying!
As a national business, we pride ourselves on continually investing in each and every one of our team members through ongoing operations, procurement, marketing and training, which is why we loved hosting regional manager, Rentia, at our branch recently. With a wealth of knowledge and truly industry-leading skill set, Rentia’s training sessions are always so well received and deeply appreciated.
“No words can convey how grateful we are to be a part of this wonderful team; we receive the most amazing support from our head office team that are consistently striving to provide us with the most updated and innovative treatments, and comprehensive, world-class training.” – Sohana, branch leader.
Forty & Fabulous!
Jenna recently celebrated her 40th birthday with her family and friends, and – thanks to regular Skin Renewal skin and body treatments – she doesn’t look a day over 25! I’m sure you’ll agree that 40 has never looked so good.
Cheers!” to Jenna for proving that the best skincare in your 40s is investing in great quality skincare in your 20s and 30s
Oh boy, now we're all broody!
Sohana's daughter recently gave birth to the most beautiful baby boy, making Sohana a very glam gran and all of the Skin Renewal Durban team a bit broody. If you take a look at the pictures of this beautiful baby boy, you’ll quickly see why we’re obsessed with this cutie!
Sohana’s grandson is not only dressed to impress, he’s clearly always ready for his close-up
We think "Mrs" has a great 'ring' to it!
Kayleigh, recently got swept off her feet when her then boyfriend, now fiancé, asked the question and popped a diamond ring on her finger.
We’re loving the spontaneous “I said ‘yes!’” selfie and have no doubt that she’ll make the most beautiful bride.
A heartfelt “congratulations!” to Kayleigh and her fiancé on this truly magical milestone
Mention the word laser, and those with a darker complexion tend to shy away, but please don't! At Skin Renewal we treat our skin type 4, 5 & 6 patients with the utmost care, ensuring that only devices which are safe and effective on dark skins are used.
In the very capable and extremely experienced hands of Dr Caitlin, Kayleigh’s post-Botox results are nothing short of amazing. At just 27-years old, Kayleigh was hesitant to do botulinum toxin injections but, because she had become increasingly self-conscious of the several horizontal expression lines on her forehead and her frown lines, decided to give it a try.
“I am amazed at how it has smoothed out the lines on my forehead and given me a more youthful appearance, without a complete frozen look,” she says. Her reaction is proof that, if you’re nervous of injectables because you fear looking ‘frozen’, it’s definitely worth a consult with one of our world-class doctors.
Intrigued by injectables, too?
Take a look at the results achieved by Dr Caitlin for Jenna by injecting dermal filler under the eyes, and in the cheek and chin areas, and injecting “a touch of Botox” into Jenna’s forehead and crow’s feet areas. We’re sure you’ll agree that the results are really subtle and natural-looking, and proof that – with Skin Renewal’s wide range of injectables and highly-skilled doctors – whatever your aesthetics goals, we can help you achieve them, beautifully.
Welcome to the future of hybrid injectables!
HArmonyCA composite matrix dermal filler is here, and you could be just one syringe away from never being tempted to use a social media filter again – thanks to the hybrid injectable proven to deliver clinically significant results in the targeted areas of more than 90% of patients.
Designed to restore facial volume and correct deficiencies, HArmonyCa dermal filler promotes the generation of natural enogenous collagen (natural collagen synthesised by the body), using Calcium Hydroxyapatite microspheres to embed cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid via a particle-creating composite matrix. If you found yourself frowning while reading that then don’t worry about the science, rather focus on the evidence-based results courtesy of ‘power duo’ Calcium Hydroxyapatite and Hyaluronic Acid in one syringe.
Every year 10,000 girls miss school due to them not having proper sanitary wear. Skin Renewal’s vision is to facilitate infinite transformation to all the lives we touch, and, this year, we’re continuing to partner with Komani – across all 18 of our branches nationwide – to transform young lives by helping to stop period poverty.
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 (of the three charities we support in each province) 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.
How can you get involved?
When paying for your treatment or products, you can add any amount you wish to your bill as a donation towards our Komani initiative. And, we’ll match your donation Rand for Rand.
