Marinda Toerien: “We are so much more than a beauty salon, our treatments step beyond the usual.”
Face and Body Synergy is difficult to categorise, simply because the range of services offered is so broad, no single category could hope to cover them all. But we’ll give readers an overview of what to expect, and encourage you to call in and see for yourself.
Firstly, there’s the longstanding successful medical practice, manned by three Doctors.
Then there is Slender Wonder, the slimming programme Dr Toerien introduced to the Lowveld in 1995. This ‘programme for life’ as Dr Toerien fondly calls it has brought patients from as far afield as Zimbabwe and Beira and he is proud of the outstanding results they have achieved.
But enter through the central front door, and you are greeted with the widest smile and lilting Portuguese accented English of receptionists Elizabeth and Guida. Face and Body Synergy has a large Mozambican clientele and have employed Portuguese speaking ladies to ensure that their clients are comfortable and feel at home when they walk through the door.
From here on, the range of beauty and aesthetic services is almost endless. Adéle can freeze your fat pockets away or reduce the excess fat pockets depending on the volume /size of problem area, with their Cooltech fatfreeze machine. Ilse creates beautiful long lashes with individual Lasting Lashes, leaving you with stunning, natural looking lashes. Bianca creatively cheers up your fingers and toes with a new set of LCN nails and funky nail art and Florette can permanently reduce unwanted hair, treat pigmentation and broken /superficial facial capillaries with their Palomar IPL machine. IPL is the way to go for overall skin rejuvenation.
In the hair salon, Kate changes your look with a beautiful new haircut and colour from Schwarzkopf while next door Madelaine stimulates cell renewal and treats old scaring and photo damaged skin with our Dermapen and chemical peels. Dr Toerien oversees the medical aesthetics that includes fillers, chemical peels, sclerotherapy, threading and Botox. We recently acquired a Plexr machine from Italy for the treatment of saggy eyelids, wrinkles and superficial skin spots and growths.
What more can you ask for under one roof?
Marinda Toerien points out that the treatments offered at Face and Body Synergy are several steps beyond conventional beauty salons. Yes, you can enjoy a facial, mani- and pedicures and massages at the salon, but they offer a variety of non-surgical anti-aging and weight loss analysis and procedures as well.
