Termites use it as rafts in the raging waters of the gutter, plankton use it to build hospices for their young and ants use it as parachutes when they leap off the tops of anthills. However, to the average human being, the only function of a dead skin cell is to rob you of your youth and leave you looking like a worn-out energy-saving light bulb. Rejuvenate with today’s youth-enhancing and skin-brightening deal: a microdermabrasion session and 15 minutes of near infra-red light therapy with the Laserderm Aesthetic Centre for R200.
The Dunkeld West Laserderm Aesthetic Centre is an inviting retreat for a private and refined moulting session. Armed with the most advanced medical microdermabrasion systems and a voluminous amount of skill, the Laserderm staff are equipped to peel the most belligerent of dead skin cells, easily bringing to a halt and curbing any skirmishes that may have taken place between face and dead cell. You’ll leave with skin capable of fooling a Spanish conquistador that you are in possession of a map to the Fountain of Youth.
Microdermabrasion is a skin-care technique that removes the build-up of dead skin cells, promoting the generation of new collagen. Using tiny rough grains to buff away the surface layer of your skin, this therapy will make your skin feel as soft as the buttock of a new-born baby. The generation of the new collagen thickens the dermis and improves resistance to the effects of aging. To give you the maximum effect, the treatment is combined with near infra-red light therapy, making sure that you’ll be mistaken for that ten year younger version of yourself you always wanted people to mistake you for.
Freshly unzipped from the tethers of your old skin, you’ll step out of Laserderm and into the world with that rejuvenated and refreshed skin that has so long been screaming to get out. If only those Spanish conquistadors knew.
Skin Fact: In Palau, tribes native to the region have adapted in a unique way. Because of the nature of the climate and the fast paced lifestyles that they lead, their bodies have started growing extra layers of skin resembling pockets on their upper arms and thighs. They use this to store or hold weapons while hunting.
