Gerda’s Mooimaak journey was led by Dr Rulene Maré, with additional treatments performed by therapist Lizanne Burton over a course of 9 weeks. The focus with Gerda’s treatment plan was to improve her hooded eyelids to give her a fresh and open expression, through means of a non-surgical brow lift, targeted eye treatments and general skin rejuvenation.

Gerda’s husband entered her into Mooimaak. At first, she was very skeptical and hesitant to partake, as her time is so limited and she does not like change! Gerda is also a creature of habit – routine and order are very important to her as she spends all her time, money and energy on her family and never puts herself first.
Gerda and her husband have two children: a special needs son of 11 and a little girl of 2, who they love and adore! It has always been a dream for Gerda to fix her teeth, which have been a bother and financial burden since she can remember. That in addition to the new look Renewal Institute was able to give Gerda has made her look 10 years younger, and more confident!

To be honest I was scared of all the treatments initially, but from day one of meeting and talking to the Doctors I knew I was in the best hands – everyone had a wealth of knowledge, experience and the caring approach with which you are taken care of is astonishing!
Skin Renewal made my Mooimaak journey worth all the ups and downs: The sincere love, affection and caring shown with each visit was truly inspirational and appreciated! The Doctors put me at ease and the therapists were so enthusiastic, through the easy, and more intense treatments.
Everyone was in constant communication to check how I was doing, and it made me feel so special – like I was the only patient on the planet that mattered! Dr Rulene was wonderful – she listened and knew my fears and doubts and explained everything in detail whilst working very delicately through the procedures to ensure I was comfortable.
Skin Renewal has become like an extension of my family, I love each staff member and now I can’t walk past a Skin Renewal clinic without just popping in to say “Hi”, give a hug, or just wave “Hallo”! This company is filled with caring, loving and wonderful people who I recommend to anyone with confidence! Thank you Skin Renewal, you are all awesome!" Gerda
