From the perfect Mother’s day pedi (hint hint, nudge nudge) and neighbourhood treats just across the street to crossing time zones to bring the best in the aesthetics ‘biz’ to you. From transforming lives through our CSI initiative, to transforming winter-dreading skins with the kind of mask we’ll always be happy to wear, these are just a few of the things we’ve jotted down in this month’s newsletter, so, sit back and have a read.
Disclaimer: We cant be held responsible for the sudden urge to book a plane ticket when you read about our team travelling to Monaco last month. As a business we continue to ensure we can offer world class trends and equipment and its fantastic to be able to attend a congress such the Aesthetic & Anti-Ageing Medical World (AMWC) one. If you are planning any trips across the globe to the sun we are happy to help you….
We are so fortunate to have such a fabulous neighbour, the Mall of Africa, right on our doorstep. With everything you could need under one roof, we highly recommend popping in for a spot of retail therapy before or after your appointment with one of our therapists. It’s truly a world-class shopping mall – it’s safe and secure, well-appointed and diversely ‘stocked’.
From fashion and homeware to restaurants and entertainment, our Waterfall team are Mall of Africa regulars; whether we’re popping in to answer the “What’s for dinner?” question, update our wardrobes as the weather changes or enjoy an ‘out of office’ get together with our Skin Renewal Fam.
Whether just grabbing a quick takeaway or sitting down to savour every bite on offer at Nomad Turkish cuisine, we love that pretty much anything on our ‘to do’ list can be ticked off ‘just across the road’.
Dr Lestonn Lawn and Skin Renewal CEO Victor Snyders recently attended the Aesthetic & Anti-Ageing Medical World (AMWC) Congress in Monaco. They got to experience and learn about some of the industry’s most exciting new products and technologies. This year’s exhibition boasted over 300 of the industry’s leading and most trusted companies in the Aesthetic industry. We’re looking forward to sharing what we learnt with you, our extended Skin Renewal family, as we continue to bring the market’s latest and greatest to our 18 Skin Renewal branches nationwide.

Skin Renewal’s vision is to facilitate the infinite transformation of all the lives we touch. This year, we’re partnering with Komani to transform young lives by helping to stop period poverty. Every year, 10,000 girls miss school due to not having proper sanity wear.
Komani produces high quality reusable, washable sanitary pads, which are both sustainable and environmentally friendly. We aim to donate 1000 packs of reusable sanitary packs to each charity we support. For every 100 packs we receive, we will spend time with the beneficiaries educating them on personal hygiene and how to use and maintain their sanitary pack. The cost of a pack is just R150, and the pads can last up to three years, requiring only 6 litres of water to wash the pads for the duration of a menstrual cycle.
Our patients have been so amazing by adding their donations to their bills, and we appreciate every single contribution. Thank you!
Putting a face to each pack donated – Have you seen the Komani family tree inside our branch?
The way we see it, nothing lifts the winter blues like a fresh set of toenails. So, take your pedicure to the next level with our Paraffin Dip treatment. Aside from the nourishing benefits, this treatment relieves dryness and foot pain and releases built-up tension, making it ideal for those who spend hours working on their feet or running around after small humans with seemingly bottomless energy supplies.
How does it work?
Your feet are covered with liquid paraffin wax, known for its intensive moisturising properties. Once the wax has cooled and dried, it slides off easily to reveal softer, smoother, absolutely soft glowing skin.
A cocktail of minerals and antioxidants, Intravenous Vitamin (IV) therapies enable patients to absorb up to ten times more nutrients than they could get orally in one day. For example, vitamin C, which can effectively treat colds, flu, and the symptoms caused by viruses when taken in high doses.
At Skin Renewal, we offer customised intravenous vitamin therapy (administered in our comfortable and relaxing in-branch infusion suites) tailored to what your body needs from our ‘menu’ of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants:
· Vitamin C, Vitamin B6 Pyridoxine & Vitamin B 12
· Magnesium Sulphate, Manganese Sulphate & Zinc Sulphate
· EDTA & PPC (phosphatidylcholine)
Chat to us about how taking your vitamins intravenously can help build your immune system and tackle any health issues you may be having.
This winter, Bianca’s go-to item in her evening skincare routine is the Serra Lipid Recovery Mask from Lamelle. This product's enhanced lipid recovery complex assists with barrier repair and hydration while delivering smoother skin. And thanks to its anti-irritation properties, even the most sensitive skins can stay hydrated without the irritation of hydration-triggered inflammation.
Top Tip: Bianca recommends applying the Serra Lipid Recovery Mask just before bedtime and then leaving it on overnight to put the ‘beauty’ in beauty sleep.
