This treatment stimulates the epidermis, improves fine lines and wrinkles, as well as revitalises stressed and tired skin. The skin is left feeling smooth, firm, fresh and glowing.

Pixel Peel

Date: 01/05/2016

Author: Ingrid Katz (Pure Aesthetics)

This month we are going a little deeper. The Pixel Peel is our new and exciting treatment combining a TCA peel with a Dermapen needling treatment.

Both, TCA peels and needling have been around for some time and we have seen some pretty amazing results with them when done as stand-alone treatments. The combination of the two treatments now allows us to use both methods to achieve an even more effective result in one procedure.

With the TCA peel we are able to peel to a deeper level in the skin which allows for improvement to deeper lines, sun damage and uneven texture. The TCA peel is designed to penetrate the epidermal layers in order to stimulate the skin at a dermal level, it does this via a chemical reaction and the depth to which it has an effect, will depend on the layering that is achieved in treatment.

Treating Eczema

Date: 01/03/2016

Author: Ingrid Katz (Pure Aesthetics)

This month we are doing things a little differently and giving you an opportunity to see for yourselves, what we do and how we do it. Every so often I get a painful call for help that I must confess – I love! However, I absolutely, heart wrenchingly hate seeing a client and their skin in complete meltdown mode.

This particular client suffers from severe eczema – on her face mainly, but also across the body. Her face, for obvious reasons, is her primary concern. She has tried everything from home remedies to the severest of medications for this condition. Some have given temporary relief while others have only exacerbated the condition.

Skin Brightening

Date: 01/02/2016

Author: Ingrid Katz (Pure Aesthetics)

Worldwide, we see human beings in a splendour of different colours: dark, freckly or light skins with grey, auburn, blond or brunette hair. And then there are the multitude of eye colours too. It is incredible when we realise that most of these colours are thanks to an ability our body has, to produce pigment. We call this pigment melanin and we call the cell that produces melanin, a melanocyte.

As human beings – regardless of colour, we are all born with a very similar amount of melanocytes. However, it is the amount of melanin that is produced that determines our skin colour. A person who is unable to produce pigment is called an albino.

Get your Skin Back on Track

Date: 04/01/2016

Author: Ingrid Katz (Pure Aesthetics)

I love holidays! I love leaving the hamster wheel for a bit to relax and recharge the mind, body and soul. I also love coming home after the holidays, feeling refreshed and ready to take on life. This is when I do a little clean out of my skin care & make-up shelf.

I am all for simplifying the visual of my bathroom counter and so anything expired gets binned and any make-up not used within the past year gets the boot.

Fuel From Within

Date: 30/09/2015

Author: Ingrid Katz (Pure Aesthetics)

We know that you need “fuel in the tank” in order for your motor car to move. You also need to check your water and oil occasionally to ensure the vehicle operates optimally. Added to this, an annual service is required to ensure longevity of that vehicle. Our bodies require just as much care.

We know we should eat 3 balanced meals a day, drink approximately 8 glasses of water, get 8 hrs of sleep and exercise for at least 30 minutes a day – in order for our bodies to function optimally. You get a gold star if you are one of the very few that is able to manage all of the above on a daily basis.

Genes vs. Routines

A2 Aesthetic & Anti-Ageing Magazine | issue 15

Skin ageing. How much can we control...and how much is pure genetics? Ingrid Katz deliberates...

Our skin is the biggest organ in our body. Since it sits on the periphery, it’s our first form of defence from any external (outside) influence, while being the first step of our immune system. It is also the last to receive nutrition from within, with our major organs taking the majority of nutrient value that is ingested, and then sending what is not used to the outer layers and skin. Having clarified the above, you can imagine how much work the skin does with minimal support – especially when our bodies are not in optimal condition.

GHS Sports Awards Ceremony

Date: 02/10/2015

Written & Presented by: Ingrid Katz (Pure Aesthetics)

Event: Pietermaritzburg Girls’ High School Sports Award

Good morning ladies, staff and guests, I feel very privileged to be able to speak to you all here today as you celebrate your sporting achievements at this incredible establishment, that is GHS.

I spent 5 irreplaceable years toiling on the sports fields and in the classrooms of this school and I wouldn’t change them for anything. In fact, I often feel like I could go back tomorrow....but alas, real life takes over when you leave these halls and for me it has been almost 20 years.
