Every person's skin is different, so we recommend that you meet with our therapist or plastic surgeon for an in-depth consultation to map out your customised skin care needs.
Client Testimonial - Dr Nadine de Freitas
"I have to say it was a pleasure to visit Pure Aesthetics. The medical environment is usually clinical, yet in my brief visit, I can clearly see you have created a relaxing and friendly environment, that I can only imagine makes clients comfortable to return long after the surgical procedure or independent of surgical procedure.
Information given through the facial treatment was accurate, informative and supportive. Congratulations, I feel privileged to have visited your Aesthetic Institute."

Why Commitment is the Essential Ingredient to Beautiful Skin
Ingrid Katz (Pure Aesthetics) - Published in A2 Magazine Issue 23
The skin is the biggest and most complex organ of the body, forming a barrier on the periphery to protect all that lies beneath it. This makes it the first line of defence when under attack from external influences.
The face and hands are especially vunerable to these influences, as they are exposed the most: 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. So with this in mind, it is vital to follow a skin care routine (particularly facial skin care) that is not only effective and easy to maintain, but also stimulates and feeds the skin as well.

Too often we see Eczema symptoms being treated, rather than getting to the root cause. Unfortunately there are many differing opinions of how Eczema develops and the treatment thereof. We do however know a few facts through ongoing Eczema research:
- Eczema develops more in childhood than adulthood
- There is a direct link between Eczema & Asthma and/or hay fever
- Eczema is exacerbated by stress
- Eczema is negatively affected by poor nutrition
- Skins inflicted with Eczema have NO barrier and are therefore unable to defend themselves from the negative external influences
