Latest in advanced skincare and aesthetics at Professional Beauty Cape Town 05 February 2018     Crowds gathering at The Lookout for last year’s show A two-and-a-half-hour power session on the latest trends in advanced skincare, technology and aesthetic treatment trends will run at the Professional Beauty Cape Town Show on Sunday 4 March, at The Lookout, V&A Waterfront. Coordinated by Karen Ellithorne, this afternoon seminar programme will take place from 13h00 to 15h30 and cover topics which include, ‘Top power skincare ingredients’. This session will be presented by aesthetic therapist, Amy Bowie, who will discuss what ingredients she looks for in cosmetic preparations; what ingredient she prefers for which skin condition and skin type, and how to combine them with clinical treatments in order to get the best treatment outcome.  A 60-minute session on thread lifting (including a demo) will be presented by Dr Johan Botha, who will show how this methodology has been a revolutionary aesthetic industry treatment for skin tightening and lifting of the face and facial contours. Now threads can be used to produce impressive results in body contouring too – lifting breasts, knees and sagging buttocks. In the session, ‘Recognition of skin lesions’, Janine Thompson will present a recap on the different skin lesion that can develop on the skin, how to recognise them and the importance of an aesthetician referring to a medical practitioner where necessary. Yolandi Swanepoel will, in her session, ‘Training beyond beauty for future success’, emphasise the importance of advanced education in our ever evolving industry and why it is key to standardisation.

In conjunction with concerned beauty industry stakeholders, Professional Beauty is to launch an online petition to raise awareness around the threat posed by the Allied Health Professionals Council of South Africa (AHPCSA), which wants to make ‘non-therapeutic’ massage, aromatherapy and reflexology part of its register. The AHPCSA has already made representation to the Minister of Health on this issue. Should the AHPCSA succeed in its goal, then no beauty therapist will be able to perform massage, aromatherapy and reflexology services unless they are registered with the AHPCSA, and they would only be able to perform these services in registered practices, as opposed to salons or spas. Speaking at the Professional Beauty Network Breakfast held on 25 April at Moyo Zoo Lake in Johannesburg, Professional Beauty’s commercial director, Phil Woods, urged the beauty industry as a whole to make a stand and present a united front to the Minister of Health to counter the AHPCSA threat. “This is an extremely serious issue,” continued Woods. “If the AHPCSA is successful in its mission, it will have a hugely detrimental effect on the industry. “We need to get the word out to the wider industry. “In addition, spas and salons need to make their clients aware of the issue and get them to sign the petition. It’s vital that we show the Minister that we need to regulate our own industry.” Professional Beauty will inform the industry of the launch of the online petition and awareness campaign in the near future.
