Our party hats are on and we can’t quite believe Team Willows is (almost) a teen!
As we say hello to May, we celebrate 12 years of Skin Renewal Willowbridge – and we’re so proud you’ve been with us on our incredible journey. Very soon, our space is going on a rejuvenation adventure of its own, and we’re so excited to get things going. Happy days ahead!
Speaking of happy, we’re all in such a happy place – yes, even though it’s all wintery out there - and we’re dying to share all the news with you. Here’s the latest from our team and our best and most advanced skin solutions we just have to share. Get cosy!
Neostrata's Skin Active Range
We love product specific ranges because they work together in synergy.
Dr Graham’s absolute favourite is NeoStrata’s Skin Active range. “This specially formulated range is powerful anti-ageing for mature, tolerant skin types to help improve the appearance of wrinkles and uneven skin tone.” – Dr G.
Now you know!
TURN BACK TIME WITH OUR NEW “SUPER INJECTABLE”, SCULPTRA.
Always abreast of the most innovative and cutting-edge trends in the world of aesthetics, we’re proud to officially announce that Sculptra – “The talk of the aesthetics industry town” – is now available at all of our 18 branches, nationwide.
Why are we so excited about this addition to our treatment menu?
1. Sculptra is the first and only FDA-approved PLLA (Poly-L-Lactic-Acid) facial injectable treatment proven to stimulate the skin’s own collagen production.
2. Sculptra works gradually to rebuild collagen; restoring the skin’s scaffolding from the inside out.
3. As an injectable, Sculptra delivers a substantial collagen boost at the deepest layers of your skin.
4. A series of just three Sculptra treatments improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, delivering an overall more youthful-looking appearance.
5. 94% of Sculptra clients agree that their treatment results look natural two years after treatment.
Why should you consider Scupltra?
From our mid-twenties, most of us experience a decrease in collagen production of about 1%. By our mid-40s we’re looking at that percentage having steadily increased, year on year, to 25%. So, while you may not notice the decrease of collagen in your 20s, by the time you’re nearing 50, your skin’s mid-life crisis could be well – and noticeably – underway.
So, if you want to target the underlying causes of facial ageing proactively, not just address the symptoms reactively, a series of Sculptra treatments is the answer.
To find out more about our Sculptra treatments, chat to your therapist or doctor at your next appointment.
We recently had the privilege of hosting Dr Gareth and the rest of the Cape doctors for the new and improved Sculptra Liquid lift treatment.
From Sculptra to The Secret™ RF Fractional Microneedling, we’re just as excited for the newly launched radio frequency device that takes skin needling to a whole new level.
Lindi, our National Trainer, trained Zaan and Lorraine, and we can’t wait to chat through this dermal remodelling treatment as an option for your skin. Especially if you’re worried about issues like post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. This therapy has little to no downtime, and it’s safe for all skin types.
We’re all about balance here at Team Willows! And our lives are sweeter thanks to The Dairy Den, one of our neighbours at Willowbridge Centre. No matter the occasion or the season, indulging in our favourite ice cream or milkshake makes life brighter. And we need no reason for a happy little spoil!

We had an SA Sports hero in the House!
With a surprise visit from Thomas Du Toit – Marzet’s brother and captain of the Sharks, Team Willows felt most chuffed that we could claim such Springbok connections. Thank this Prop Bok for popping in!
Another boy will be visiting the Willowbridge branch soon, we hope!
Zeenat recently celebrated her baby’s gender reveal, and come July; her little guy will be here. Such exciting news for her – and us – and all our blessings for the rest of her pregnancy.
From getaways, to family reunions, our team are filing their happy cups, and we couldn’t be more joyful. And also incredibly proud! As if working at busy clinics and caring for clients isn’t enough, our doctors hit their goals with, you know, a simple Two Ocean half marathon.
Dr Ross Connor and Dr Rulene Maré recently joined Cape Town’s most prestigious race, and both completed the Two Oceans half (21.1km). One of the most spectacular routes around the Cape Peninsula (and often voted as the most breathtaking course in the world). Bragging rights go to both doctors who achieved incredible targets for themselves. Dr Ross managed a mighty 1hr47 minutes while Dr Rulene, on his heels clocking in at an impressive 2hr22min, inspire and amaze us. Go team!
Like many families, separation has been part of the pandemic. However, it was happy days this past Easter for Margot as she and William returned to their home country and saw family and friends in beautiful Namibia. A long overdue visit, and over two years without seeing their loved ones, this special time was absolute magic for the couple.
Magic was also in the air for Candice and her clan. Not only did her parents visit the Cape, but she returned back home to KZN for the Easter weekend and met the newest, and dare we say cutest member of her family, baby Harper.
Marzet and her family kept it local in a celebration of her youngest brother’s visit from the States.
A beach break in ever-gorgeous Hermanus meant precious family time and a chance to reconnect.
As we all know April is like one long public holiday in SA. Tell us about your mini breaks or great escapes. We always love to hear what our patients get up to!
And if you didn’t think Marzet was amazing already, check out her renovation abilities! Yes, that’s her tiling her gorgeous home as she DIYs her space – and paints too! We can’t wait to show you our made-over space in the next while. So, get ready…. Exciting times are ahead!
Just launched, Lamelle’s Helase Urban Defence 30 is a breakthrough, multi-functional anti-ageing product specifically developed to reduce the impact of particulate matter in urban living. The new lightweight formulation alleviates urban pollution stress at a cellular level, providing significant protection against particulate matter (teeny tiny particles of air pollution) that cause ageing, inflammation and hyperpigmentation. Combining broad-spectrum solar protection, powerful antioxidant defences, cellular mutation correction and repair, Helase Urban Defence is a must-have for facing modern living, whatever the concrete jungle throws at you!
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 sanitary 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!
What does our loyalty programme & your skincare journey have in common? Rewarding results, long-term. It’s our way of saying “Thank you!” for investing in your skin, with us.
