From the age of thirty, cell turnover starts to slow down which leads to a buildup of dead skin, and it doesn't always slow at the same pace across your face so you end up with patches of dead skin in some areas, causing your complexion to be dull, uneven, and rough.

Skin Renewal Tip

No matter how great your skin is at 25, the inevitable age spots, pigmentation marks, red blemishes and sagging will slowly leave their marks on one's face by the time one reaches 35. The earlier one starts with preventative treatments and products, the more one is able to slow down the ageing process and maintain a fresher, more youthful, more radiant skin, for longer. At Skin Renewal we have access to the latest technology, most recent advancement in skin products and a highly skilled team of doctors and therapists who are able to tailor our treatment packages to meet your needs.


Ageing skin is associated with a range of cosmetic concerns. The development of dry, dull skin also is common, adding to an overall lack lustre appearance. With ageing, the surface of the skin tends to have a "sallow" appearance- that is, dry, with a slight yellow, lifeless tinge, which results from a slowing down of the metabolic process yielding skin, that does not renew frequently, and looks "sluggish".

Exfoliation is the key to removing dead skin cells that cause your skin to look dull. To force your skin into the habit of faster cell turnover, introduce products containing ingredients such as salicylic acid, retinol, PHA’s, peptides, exfoliating enzymes and growth factors that speed up the process into your daily regimen. One also needs to moisturise your skin on a daily basis and protect the skin from the sun and free radicals by using anti-oxidants and sun protection products.

In addition to dead skin, dull skin is also caused by poor diets high in fat and processed foods. To improve the look of your skin you need to eat more fresh fruits and vegetables and less processed junk food and increase your daily water intake.

I really love the Microdermabrasion and the serums for hydration and overall glow to the face. I didn't feel my pigmentation treatment worked as well, but I have seen the doctor and he has recommended a different treatment for me.

I go to Bernice at the Stellenbosch branch for treatments on a regular basis. She keeps my skin in great shape with a combination of peels, laser, PDT and microdermabrasion treatments.

Yoscha was a delightful young lady - she informed me throughout the Dermaquest Pumpkin Peel treatment what she was doing. She helped me through the peel. Afterwards she applied a soothing mask, which was comforting and I received a lovely pamper from Yoscha. The spa is very very beautiful as well. Really a classy, styling and exclusive establishment.

Tammy has been our therapist for around 2 years now. She was the first therapist to understand what we (my daughters and I) needed fro our facials, and has really addressed the specific concerns we each had. Tammy is extremely professional and efficient but also remarkably gentle, both in her treatments and her personality. She takes time to understand her clients and works hard to make them comfortable.

I went for a birthday facial and free manicure at Skin Renewal Willowbridge yesterday - free manicure due to my loyalty points having reached the required level. What a treat! I can recommend it with confidence! Johandi took such great care of me and ensured that I was comfortable and warm throughout. The quality of the treatments were amazing - I spend quite a bit of time at various establishments throughout the year especially hosting clients for massages, mani's, pedi's - and I must commend her on the excellent job done. She has a lovely nature and they play the best music! Very nice environment and way with clients in general at that establishment.
