Charmaine’s Mooimaak journey was led by Dr Graham Duncombe, with additional treatments performed by therapist Liza Schoeman over a period of three months. The focus of her treatment plan was to improve deep seated wrinkles, sagging and assist with weight loss. Charmaine followed the 5D Body Renewal Diet, and with targeted facial treatments achieved her desired results!

Charmaine used to be a detective for the SAPS, and in 1992 started working as head of security on diamond ships for Transhex. She was away for a month at a time, and during one such trip on sea her husband had an aneurism, and passed away four days later. Charmaine’s father could not process her husband’s death and also passed away a month later. Charmain vowed to never marry again.
This left Charmaine as a single parent of two daughters and a son, and life was tough for them.
She says “God has a sense of humor”, as she fell in love with a family friend and married Gert van Wyk after 5years of being engaged. Charmaine hoped to lose excess weight, gain knowledge on skin and teeth treatments and regain her youthful appearance and confidence.
Radiofrequency produces a deep heating effect in the dermis which results in increased and accelerated cell metabolism, oxygenation and nourishment of tissues and improved blood circulation. The results are a lifting and firming effect on the treated tissue by strengthening the skin with improved collagen and fibroblast cell activity.Read more about this treatment
PDO Anchor threads are dissolvable sutures made from polydioxanone, that are strategically placed deep into the skin where it acts as a framework for lifting and smoothing of sagging loose skin. Dr Graham treated Charmaine’s cheek area for a beautiful lift restoring her youthful look with pronounced cheekbones and no more sagging jowels!Read more about this treatment
By injecting the Ceccarelli solution, made from Vitamin C & Iron, into localised fatty deposits one can contour and re-sculpt the face. For Charmaine the jowel area was treated to re-define her jaw line and remove the heavy sagging deposits. The solution acts on the fat cells and causes a natural process of fat cell death (cell apotosis), and visible results are seen the next day.Read more about this treatment
