The past month has been a joy-filled one, from celebrating Heritage Day and Skin Renewal’s 16th birthday to celebrating the achievements of our team at the Fourways Branch, professionally and personally. We’ve enjoyed warm welcomes and fond farewells, gotten to know our neighbours a little better, added an anti-ageing superhero to our range of injectables, and that’s not all. We’ve got lots of news to share with you, so let’s get going.
But first, coffee…
Whether you’re building a business, raising a family or doing your best cheerleader impersonation for a cause close to your heart, it always takes a village. And we love that DC coffee is a part of ours. Not only because they make a mean shot of caffeine but because they’re kind enough to drop some off with us, with a different kind of caffeine – words of encouragement. They definitely live up to their “Brewing Kindness” pay-off line, which is why you should pay them a visit for your morning (or 4pm) cuppa and give them a follow on the Gram @dccoffeeco
“Thank you!” to DC Coffee for the source of the big smiles behind these masks.
Over the past 18 months there has been little cause for celebration so we were so appreciative of the opportunity to celebrate Skin Renewal’s ‘sweet sixteen’. Sixteen years in business in normal times is no small feat and in challenging times it’s an even bigger achievement.
They say time flies when you’re having fun and the time really has flown. It’s been 16 years since our Founder, Dr Maureen Allem, started Skin Renewal and it’s nothing short of inspiring to have seen that one branch grow 18 branches in three provinces. What sets Skin Renewal apart – apart from the dream team we’re so proud to be a part of – is that it’s a solely owned business which enables seamless integration between all 18 branches. What does that mean for you? If you need to replenish your products or even to enjoy a treatment when you’re on holiday or travelling for work, you can pop into any branch and they’ll have all your info and treatment history within a few taps on a keyboard. That’s the beauty of having gone digital – your skincare journey can continue at any of our branches.
As with any birthday, there’s always cause for reflection and goal-setting for the year ahead. Our goals include an ongoing commitment to sustainability, in every sense of the word, and an ongoing passion for like-minded, purpose-driven partnerships. One of these partnerships is our valued relationship with Miss Earth. Watch this space!
Because what’s a birthday without balloons and a COVID-friendly (cup)cake?
We are very excited to welcome our sister branches in Ballito, Kwa Zulu Natal and Waterfall right here in Gauteng. The new Waterfall branch boasts a spa which operates 7 days a week ensuring that you really never need to miss the Skin Renewal touch. So if it’s a pampering session you’re seeking look no further.
Remember the seamless integration we mentioned.. if it’s a beach summer you’re after for a weekend away you can now enjoy treatments in not only Durban and Umhlanga but also our fabulous new Ballito branch ensuring that your skin care journey doesn’t miss a beat.
We’ve finally figured out Inge, our Branch Manager’s, secret to the happy, healthy vibes (and the glow) she exudes from our branch’s reception desk – 20-minute workouts courtesy of her coach at Pulse Fourways. Her hard work and dedication in the gym is most definitely paying off in the skin department.
It’s no secret that a healthy body – especially a healthy gut – sets the stage for glowing skin, which is why we have a wide range of supplements with all the essential vitamins and minerals you need to help reach your fitness and makeup-free goals. So next time you pop in, chat to Inge and the team about how we can get and keep you glowing.
Inge and her coach @dff_07 @pulse_fourways know that sometimes a medicine ball workout is just what the doctor ordered.
We know that summer bodies are built in Winter but we could all use a little help, especially those of us who’s fridge has been located ten steps from our ‘office’ during lockdown. Allow us to introduce you to Skin Renewal’s own cutting-edge weight and fat loss solution program: RID
RID incorporates the latest in medical advances and experience from over 12 years in the ‘weight and fat loss’ field. Containing ingredients that help to mobilise abnormal fat which accumulates over time, RID – in conjunction with a low GL eating program and HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) injections – can achieve significant weight loss and shift stubborn fat. You know, the kind that no number of HIIT workouts or grilled chicken and steamed broccoli dinners can make a dent in.
Any day that we get to celebrate the spirit of UBUNTU is a good day and Heritage Day was a good day indeed – a fitting celebration of life, togetherness and all our different cultures. It was also a fitting (excuse the pun) way to support our Kliptown Gogos by wearing their vibrant head scarves which called for many, many staircase selfies.
If you would like to support these creative women and purchase a head scarf, you can purchase one at reception. It’s one way to get next year’s Heritage Day outfit sorted… #justsaying
Celebrating Heritage Day. But first… let’s take a selfie.
We love it when we come across a brand that takes service excellence as seriously as we do, which is why we’re loving the VIP treatment our wheels get at Cream. From sporty hatchbacks to mommy wagons, there’s not a vehicle that Cream can’t get feeling, looking and smelling like new. But don’t just take our word for it, leave your car in their capable hands before you come for your next treatment. Did we mention they’ll drive you to our branch and fetch you again when you’re done? You’re welcome.
Some new faces…
With years of experience in medical aesthetics and a love for coffee (same, same), Shalean has joined the Skin Renewal Fourways family and we can’t wait for you to meet her (and her infectious laugh). We are also delighted to welcome Morongwa to the Fourways team as part of our Housekeeping Team.
A new opportunity…
We wish Comfy (a familiar face in the branch) all the best as she takes her beautiful smile and calming presence to our brand new Waterfall branch.
And a heartfelt goodbye…
Our beloved Cece has decided to spend more time with her beautiful family in Malawi. We will miss this incredible therapist and thank her for EVERYTHING.
With Lockdown restrictions being lifted our team welcomed the opportunity to dust off their suitcases, pack their travel-sized skincare essentials and make new memories with their nearest and dearest.
Dr Megan went to the Maldives with the hubby and kids
Jean-Marie and hubby visited the Kruger
Inge and hubby visited Cape Town
Meet Mr Champs. Helen adopted this gorgeous gentleman into the previously all-girl family and he’s definitely living his best life. Just look at that face!
Jean-Marie and her family celebrated the Christening of beautiful Ava.
Whether you’re a newbie to regular Skin Renewal treatments or have been a regular for years, the cool thing about us is that we always have news in the product department because we’re always looking for new ways to help you love the skin you’re in. One of these ways is our ever-growing, ever-evolving cosmeceutical range.
Neostrata Glycolic Microdermabrasion Polish, this cosmeceutical product – a cosmetic product with bioactive ingredients – is a skin resurfacing treatment for normal/oily/dry skin types that clears impurities from pores (physically and chemically), resulting in clear and radiant skin thanks to the exfoliating effects of its dynamic duo – 10% Glycolic Acid and the highest quality Alumina Crystals.
We pride ourselves on keeping abreast of the leading trends in both technology and treatments available, which is why we are so excited to bring you Profhilo® – the latest injectable treatment available, making big waves in the anti-ageing industry for good reason.
An alternative to Dermal Fillers, Profhilo® uses a slow release of Hyaluronic Acid – one of the highest concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) available on the market – to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. The result is an injectable that remodels skin laxity, combats crepe-like texture and enhances the strength and overall condition of the skin while delivering proven anti-ageing benefits and wrinkle-reducing results. Profhilo® is specially formulated for those of us looking to plump up our skin, restore elasticity, improve skin tone, texture, hydration, and the appearance of fine lines. And, let’s be honest, who doesn’t want that?
