This month, we're excited to bring you news of 'best in the biz' additions to our treatment and product menus and celebrate new chapters with some of our favourite Skin Renewal Morningside professionals. We've also asked some of the familiar faces at our branch to answer some of your most frequently asked questions and tell you some more about themselves. So, grab a cuppa, get comfy and have a read. If you'd like delicious biscuits to go with your caffeine fix, we can also sort that out for you.
Our Skin Renewal Morningside branch has had lots to celebrate lately, from not one but two weddings (complete with breathtakingly beautiful brides) to one of our favourite humans sporting a baby bump around the branch.
A heartfelt "Congratulations!" to Bianca, who tied the knot looking absolutely exquisite on 19 March
Beautiful Donné and the "Mr" to her "Mrs" recently celebrated their one-month anniversary, having said "I do" on 22 February.
Baby bumping in style, Abigail has had us all feeling a little broody and envious of her pregnancy glow. Well into her second trimester, Abigail's little one is due at the end of July!
On Monday 11 April the meeting of hearts and minds took place in the Streetscapes garden in Roeland Street, Western Cape. Skin Renewal has had a strong working relationship with Streetscapes for over six years and this year has forged a relationship with Komani.
The Skin Renewal team met with Komani and Streetscapes founders in the garden to not only give the beneficiaries their box of Komani reusable sanitary pads but most importantly to take part in education and discussion. An experience that was both enlightening and profoundly humble saw the Komani founder Stephanie Lamour connect with the women in a meaningful and genuine way as they spoke about the importance of a menstrual cycle.
All present were reminded that as a woman it represents a healthy body and rather than a burden, it is a blessing to celebrate.The women were given a demonstration as to the contents of each box of Komani pads, what materials are used and educated on the fact that the 4 Komani reusable pads in their boxes would replace 400 pads which they would have to purchase a year. One box lasts three years.
A powerful, enlightening and uplifting time was shared. The Skin Renewal team felt privileged to be in a position to connect the two organisations and continue to raise awareness of the opportunities which exist to enhance and transform lives.
We continue to appreciate that reaching out to the wider community and being a part of sustainable change would not be possible without the shared passion from you, our valued patients - thank you.

Because we love our Morningside 'hood, we asked Candy what she loves about it most at the moment, and here's what she had to say…
"For the last few months, I have been super motivated to do regular Yoga and walks! I am really enjoying my daily walks, with my Heliocare, of course. As we've all felt the cabin fever of being locked up during almost two years of COVID-19 lockdown – at its various levels – I really appreciate and take every opportunity to GET OUTSIDE. There's nothing like getting fresh air in our lungs, getting our muscles moving and letting go of our stresses."
One of Candy's favourite neighbourhood spots to explore are Hamilton Park, Poplar Park and Bryanston Country Club
A familiar face behind the front desk when you pop in for some skin TLC at the Morningside branch, Donné started her journey at Skin Renewal in 2012, which means this year marks a decade as part of the Skin Renewal family. A lover of all things anti-acne and anti-ageing, it brings her great joy to be able to share all Skin Renewal's "not so secret" secrets with our branch's patients. She feels incredibly fortunate to work in an environment that offers its patients the latest and greatest that the aesthetics industry offers.
What's the one question she gets asked most?
"Do we treat men?"
Her answer? "Yes, we certainly do! The treatments and products we offer suit both men and women, and I firmly believe that everybody should practice self-care. We can adjust your product and treatment recommendation to be easy-peasy AND effective."
What product does she love at the moment?
"My product highlight right now is Acne Aid. I cannot recommend this enough, and this is the one to all my Acne fight members out there!"
This year will be Laurel's 3-year anniversary with Skin Renewal as the desk member confirming all your bookings and the face behind our WhatsApp. A mom of two little girls, with her eldest having just started "big school". Laurel feels like her school career has started all over again with Grade 1 homework.
What's the one question she gets asked most? "Do you have a loyalty programme?"
Her answer? "Indeed, we do! All our patients automatically opt in from the very first day you make a payment with us. You earn points for product and treatment payments, and the system automatically calculates your points and notifies us when you have SkinBucks available to use towards a treatment."
What treatment does she love at the moment?
"I love IV Infusions. I have the privilege of working very closely with Nurse Angela and seeing what a difference these treatments makes in our patients' lives. Coming in for your treatment? When I confirm your booking, let me assist you in setting up an IV while your therapist is doing your facial treatment. Let me help you kill two birds with one stone."
Thabisa may have only been part of the Skin Renewal family for nine months, but she's felt right at home since day one.
"There is not one day that is the same. It's always exciting, and I am so happy to be part of Team Morningside," she says enthusiastically. She really enjoys working with our therapists, Abigail, Bianca and Candice, who have all been part of our team for years. "I can honestly say that I have full confidence in their highly skilled and experienced ability to take care of our patients thanks to their extensive knowledge and wonderful 'bedside manner', so book your appointment with them!"
What's the one question she gets asked most?
"When is a good age to start Botox?"
Her answer? "Sooner rather than later! There is nothing like a bit of Botox to freshen up your look, and you can rest assured that our doctors always take a conservative approach – helping you erase the lines that you're self-conscious about while boosting your all-over glow! I believe it's an important element to incorporate in your skincare regime, and it makes for a lovely add-on."
