Sohana and her team look forward to welcoming you to Skin Renewal Durban!
Like all families, the Skin Renewal one is certainly dynamic, which is why we are very excited that the dynamic Dr Nicolette – with her wealth of knowledge in the medical aesthetic industry – has joined the Skin Renewal Durban team.
With a passion-driven understanding of the fact that being an aesthetic medical doctor focuses on more than just the skin and its concerns, Dr Nicolette’s approach is one of using an evidence-based background to holistically provide patients with the best treatments and services tailored to their individual needs.
A born and bred Jozi girl, Dr Nicolette graduated from the University of Pretoria in 2019 and first fell in love with the beautiful coast of KZN while completing her internship in Durban. She was subsequently posted to Mpumalanga for her community service, after which she decided to relocate and return to the tropical coastline of KZN.
Being a health fanatic, she has always felt that medicine is her calling, and she has cultivated this love of medicine further by exploring the integral role that nutrition and lifestyle play in the course of a disease.
“The Skin Renewal ethos of looking at one's skin as the dashboard to one's body resonated with me,” she explains, “which is why I jumped at the opportunity to join the Skin Renewal family and experience training and ongoing learning with Founder and Medical Director Dr Maureen Allem.”
FUN FACT: Dr Nicolette is highly creative and a passionate animal lover who enjoys spending her free time singing, learning to paint, spending time at the beach, and riding horses.
Dr Nicolette is excited to take you on your Skin Renewal journey by helping to create a plan for you that improves not only your skin but also your general well-being and self-confidence. She’s currently consulting from Skin Renewal Durban on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and, once a month, on a Saturday.
SkinCeuticals Simply Clean is a powerful makeup removing cleanser formulated with an amino acid surfactant system and a 6% concentration.
It combines sulfonic acid, glycerin, chamomile and aloe extracts, orange oil, and citric acid to gently exfoliate uneven or rough skin.
“This cleanser is amazing! I can use it around my eyes and I use it as my 2nd cleanser in my double cleanse routine at night. It removes makeup and doesn't irritate my sensitive skin.” - Nikki Haneef
NeoStrata® PHA Renewal Pads are pre-soaked tonic pads, suitable for dry and sensitive skin, that gently exfoliate dull skin to reveal a more radiant and clarified appearance.
Key ingredients include Gluconolactone (PHA), a gentle exfoliator that improves skin tone and texture while supporting the skin’s natural moisture barrier.
“My skin felt super clean and hydrated after using these pads, which are gentle and effective. It claims good for sensitive skin and redness, but I have neither. I can say that it works great for my combo skin, and I recommend this product if you want to give a cleansing pad a try.” - Rekha Naidoo
From getaways in the ‘Berg' to birthday celebrations, from team building fun to some anniversary romance, here are the pics that have added to our collective highlights reel over the past month or so…
Samantha took a short break earlier this month to get away with her handsome husband for their 2-year anniversary. They loved their week in Cape Town, which was spent exploring and having lots of “crazy fun!” – like taking a moment to capture themselves being silly in front of the Funhouse Mirror at the Science Centre.
Despite the cold weather, Kovanna recently spent a heart-warming, beautiful long weekend in the Drakensberg, enjoying quality time with her loved ones because, “it is always lovely to take time out to do things you love with people you love,” she says.
Photographic evidence that even the most seriously professional doctors are able to have some fun after hours! We’re loving these pics of our amazing ‘three musketeers’ enjoying some ‘out of office’ fun together.
“It’s a Carnival” was the gorgeously fun theme of Sohana’s grandson’s first birthday and, judging by the pics, it was a truly ONE-derful celebration.
Our beautiful patient, Justine Moodley, is absolutely chuffed with the results she had with the non-surgical Rhinoplasty. Dr Sirlesh used Restylane Lyft Filler to shape her nasal bridge and lift the tip of her nose. Doesn't she look amazing!
Showcasing Dr Nicolette’s amazing talent for natural-looking aesthetic enhancement, this beautiful patient, Jenna, recently had dermal fillers on her upper cheeks, temples and chin area; botulinum toxin on the forehead; and FSR in the eye area
The results, as you can see, are truly beautiful – enhancing her gorgeous face whilst keeping her natural beauty.
Mandela Day is a day of tribute and action, celebrated annually on 18 July, in honour of the legendary South African leader Nelson Mandela.
This special day serves as a reminder of Mandela’s extraordinary legacy and his commitment to social justice, reconciliation and equality.
It is a global call to action, encouraging individuals and communities to contribute their time, skills, and resources to make a positive difference in the world.
Our Durban Branch took an initiative on this day of remembrance to hand out sandwiches on the morning as an act of kindness.
At Skin Renewal Durban, we’re always looking for ways to make communication better for YOU.
