As we get ready for the second half of crazy 2021, we would like to remind you that we have not slacked on our Covid-Protocols. Your safety is as important to us as our own. Please remember to inform us if you have any symptoms, please wear your mask over both your nose and mouth when entering, and keep in mind that we have certain waiting periods for some treatments after you tested positive.
With that being said, let’s jump right into everything newsworthy at Skin Renewal Morningside!
New to Our Team: Meet Sianne
Sianne Casey has been a part of the Skin Renewal team since August 2008. She has worn many hats in the company, and in March this year, she became part of our Morningside desk team, and will welcome you upon your arrival at the branch, via the Dischem entrance.
New to the world: Meet Oabile
Our amazing Housekeeper, Tsolo, welcomed her sweet baby girl Oabile on 12 March. Both mommy and baby are doing well, and we wish them a life filled with love and happiness.
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® Bio Remodelling 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!
Team Morningside is fortunate to have a few brilliantly skilled doctors consult at our branch. Today, we would like to introduce you to two of them - meet Dr Megan Goble and Dr Lilli Lulli. Both of them are not only incredible women, but experts on our product and treatment protocols, giving both patients and staff very well-informed recommendations. Delivering the best patient care, these women are such feathers in the Morningside branch’s cap and we can’t wait for you to meet them. Here’s a little more about each doctor.

Q: If you could go anywhere for vacation right now, where would you go and why?

Pearl Fractional is an ideal treatment to have during winter months, and it’s only available at Skin Renewal Morningside in Johannesburg. Created to improve the look of imperfections that come with ageing (as well as scarring and sun damage), Pearl Fractional offers the best combination of safety, patient experience and recovery time. After treatment, you’ll also notice an overall smoother, and far more radiant complexion. During the procedure, the laser uses heat to create tiny holes deep in the skin. The process removes sun-damaged tissue and then stimulates the growth of healthy, new skin, full of fresh collagen. This plumps the skin from below, repairing photodamage and other skin imperfections.
What is Mask-ne? Best described as acne caused by wearing a face mask to help stop the spread of COVID-19, many of our patients are struggling with this issue right now. While you’re not alone, the encouraging news is there are certain habits you can adopt to help your skin stay blemish-free:
- Change/wash your mask often
- Avoid wearing make-up under your mask
- Combat current breakouts with a spot treatment
- Stay consistent with your skincare routine
- Don't pick or pop breakouts
Skin Renewal has been supporting the Kliptown community since 2016. Our aim is to assist the community to create sustainable businesses in the area. To date, we’ve helped them plant and maintain an amazing vegetable garden, and launch a pre-loved clothing and homeware store. The Kliptown Gogos business was started, where a team of fabulous Gogos are making a variety of items to be sold in Kliptown, ranging from pillowcases, shopping bags, beanies, slippers, tablecloths and more.
We would like to thank our patients for their contribution to making this happen, by purchasing our famous Christmas and Easter cookies. All cookie sale proceeds go to supporting these initiatives.
While we don’t currently have any cookies, you can still assist! Please drop off any empty Douw Egberts coffee bottles at the branch, as our latest venture is candle making! Please feel free to also donate any of your pre-loved items.
