With the first quarter of the year almost behind us, it’s definitely true what they say; time flies when you’re having fun – and doing what you love.
From a couple of new faces in-branch and several milestones worth celebrating, personally and professionally, to some fabulous new additions to our ‘hood and the two products we’re adding to cart (and recommending you do too), we’re looking forward to sharing our news with you.
So, sit back, relax and enjoy the read!
We’re thrilled to have a familiar face return to the Paarl branch! Zeenat – who we warmly know in-branch as Zee – started at our branch in 2018, but shortly after joined the Willowbridge team.
Now, five years later and a baby richer, she returns to her roots; ready to serve and bring a smile to the faces of our Boland patients. With her calming, caring, empathetic and loyal personality, team player Zee has a gift for bringing out the best in people and it’s a GIFT to have her back.
Impressively focussed, altruistic, bubbly and so easy to work with, we’re delighted to welcome Shelemari and her “gets things done” character to the Paarl team. Originally from Jeffrey’s Bay, Shelemari studied at ISA Carstens where she obtained her 3 year Diploma in Somatology. As a vibrant extrovert, she loves working with people and making them feel good about themselves.
Clay Café is opening in Paarl and we are very excited! The perfect location for team building with a creative twist, we’re looking forward to channelling our inner artiste while enjoying a glass of wine and snacking on delicious tapas.
Who knows, maybe the wine in our glasses at the new Clay Café may come from the beautiful Brookdale and Bacco estate.
In January Dr Helenka Fourie celebrated her 2 year anniversary at Skin Renewal. Since joining, she has grown and achieved so much – both professionally and personally.
Professionally, she has learned new techniques with the latest launches of hybrid and biostimulator injections. On a personal level, she has obtained the skill of endurance, having embarked on challenging trail runs; pushing herself further physically and mentally.
Happiest of (belated) birthdays to January baby, Dr Chrisna, and February baby, Zelna.
Wishing you both your best year yet!
This month, we’re crushing hard on two new arrivals on our shelves:
Heliocare 360° Age Active Fluid SPF 50 delivers a premium silky fluid texture containing a set of pigments that blend with your skin tone. More than an extremely effective sunscreen, this product’s innovative anti-pollution and anti-ageing complex helps to prevent and correct the signs of photo ageing, too.
NeoStrata® Lip Wrinkle Repair is the product that should be on everyone’s lips! A targeted treatment that helps smooth the appearance of fine lines while hydrating the lip area; this small package is ‘dynamite’, offering the significant anti-ageing benefits of plumping and skin smoothing with regular use.
Scientifically proven to boost collagen production, Laser Genesis™ skin therapy is an innovative, technologically and advanced way to promote vibrant and healthy-looking skin in men and women of all skin types. “The beauty of this treatment is that it can be added to your regular treatment plan and incorporated into the appointments already in the diary,” explains Anke.
With no pain or downtime, the Laser Genesis™ procedure utilises non-invasive laser technology to safely, discretely and effectively improve those conditions that are typically associated with the premature signs of ageing and sun damage, such as excessive redness, large pores, uneven texture, sallow complexion, acne scars and wrinkles.
Got a peel booked and want to really maximise your results post-treatment? Ask your therapist to add an MPM overlay. This retinol based add-on product, applied after the peel treatment process, enhances the effects of the chemical peel and delivers the benefits of fighting off the signs of ageing and promoting even skin tone.
It's worth noting that achieving long-lasting, confidence-boosting results requires patience and commitment. We find joy in comparing the 'before' and 'after' photos of our patients because it highlights the remarkable transformation that results from the gradual improvements over time. So, take a moment to appreciate this impressive transformation, courtesy of one of our patients. Remember, committing to your treatments is key to achieving the results you desire and we're here to support you every step of the way.
We look forward to seeing you at our branch soon and, until then, connect with us on Instagram and Facebook to stay updated on all our product, branch and ambassador news. And, in case you didn’t know, we have a dedicated WhatsApp number - 0871531033 - to help assist you with information, appointments and more.
Wishing you a year of good health, happiness and plenty to celebrate!
Helette & The Paarl Team
