A warm hello from all of us at “Team Irene” – we’re halfway through 2021, and it’s been a year of such remarkable strides and developments, despite the challenges! Our team remains encouraged and excited to keep walking a journey of good health and happiness with you.

Towards the end of 2020, we had our very first virtual Awards Ceremony. Our team walked away with quite a few of the prizes, and we couldn’t be more proud of them. We are honored to have them as part of our family.
Dr Lestonn Lawn walked away with not only the Top Doctor in Gauteng award but the Top Doctor Nationally. Now you know why it is so difficult to get an appointment with him!
Dr Pierce, our Weight-Loss and Biopuncture Guru repeated his success of 2019, and grabbed the Health Coach award for not the second, but the third year in a row.
We celebrated not one, but two birthdays in May!
Therapist Ilona celebrated her birthday on 13 May, spending a relaxing weekend soaking up nature in Klein Kariba. Time in the great outdoors is good for the mind, body, and soul.
Deone celebrated her birthday the very next day! She also kept it local with a weekend away at Manaba Beach with her husband.
Wishing both ladies a blessed year ahead.

We are so excited to welcome Dr Helenka to our Skin Renewal Irene community.
Dr. Helenka qualified in medicine with an MBChB from Stellenbosch University and then gained experience in hospitals in Kimberley and Upington.
A child with freckles and red hair, she suffered bullying. However, her striking look caught the fashion industry’s attention, and she modeled for a period in her life. This led to an interest in medical aesthetics and the personal discovery that it’s so closely linked to self-confidence. Disciplined and diligent, she is passionate about arts, languages, and classical music. Apart from her fashion and film industry experience, Dr. Helenka is a fitness fanatic with a love for rowing and running.
She is a recipient of the Women in Leadership award (Frederik Van Zyl Slabbert Institute) and the Duke of Edinburgh Award. She has undergone extensive in-house training by the Skin Renewal training team. She has spent considerable time with Dr. Maureen Allem in both instruction and practice to learn about the intricacies of aesthetics.
Very importantly, Dr. Helenka’s professional ethos celebrates the enhancement of one’s natural beauty through aesthetics.
Our mission is to positively transform every person and space we get in touch with, and we practice what we preach! First up, is an amazing patient transformation by Dr. Helenka. She injected 8 x Juvederm Fillers (combination of Juvederm 3 and 4) and Botox on this male patient, and the results speak for themselves!
If you are looking for a refreshed appearance, she is your girl, and is available at the Irene Branch on a Tuesday and Thursday afternoon.
Talking about refreshed and revamped, during May we had a mini-transformation in our branch. We can’t wait to welcome you to our revamped, refreshed reception!
This phenomenon is a new category into the injectable market, making the treatment the latest in skin rejuvenating innovation of its kind and Skin Renewal is the first to launch Profhilo in SA.Tipped to revolutionise anti-ageing injectables in South Africa, Profhilo is unlike other injectables (volumisers and neurotoxins). It treats skin texture, specially formulated for those who lack volume and elasticity. It’s ideal for the face and neck and can be used on the décolletage, hands, arms, and knees, making it a complete rejuvenator.
As an injectable treatment with one of the highest concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) that exists on the market, it’s known as "skin remodelling" or "bio-remodelling.” Rather than just plumping and filling wrinkles, it works with the slow release of HA to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin celebrated for improved skin tone, texture, and hydration. This method also assists with lessening the appearance of fine lines to remodel "skin laxity" and combat "crepiness". What beautiful benefits!

Lamelle Dermaheal Re-Firm Serum is a potent elixir that helps transform ageing skin, improving its firmness, dullness and boosts a healthy radiant complexion. Suitable for all ageing concerns, both first signs, and mature skins.
A fragrance-free treatment serum, key ingredients include highly active Stem Cell extracts that encourage productive re-building of skin tissue and enhance cellular communication for optimum skin functioning. Peptides stimulate collagen and elastin production reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate improves uneven skin tone and protects the skin against free radical damage.
Skin Renewal partnered with Miss Earth, and are on an ongoing sustainability journey. Every little bit helps. It can be something as simple as saving used coffee grounds and using that in our plants to enhance their growth.
We’ve seen the benefit of using coffee grounds as a fertiliser to add organic material and nitrogen to the soil, improving drainage, water retention, and aeration. The used coffee grounds are also known to help with microorganisms, and these are beneficial for plants to thrive (as well as attracting earthworms!)
