Below are a variety of skin therapy treatments on offer by Jessica Charls, Dermal Aesthetician and Somatologist, practicing from The White Lotus Wellness Centre in Kloof street, Cape Town.


Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are specialized exfoliation treatments tailored to individual skin needs. Our clinic offers a diverse range of peels, varying in acid types, concentrations, and pH levels. These peels are designed as controlled treatments to rejuvenate and address specific skin concerns. The selection of the peel is based on a thorough analysis of your skin’s condition, any contra-indications, and your lifestyle. The skin therapist will determine the most suitable peel for you during your consultation, ensuring a personalized and effective treatment experience.


Indications for Chemical Peels:

  • Acne and acne scarring
  • Hyperpigmentation (including hormonal and sun-induced)
  • Post-inflammatory pigmentation and erythema (PIH/PIE)
  • Rosacea
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Ageing and skin rejuvenation
  • General maintenance of your skin

Micro-Needling (Dermapen 4 Device)

Micro-needling, performed with the advanced Dermapen 4 device, is a precision-driven treatment designed to rejuvenate the skin by inducing a controlled injury through tiny micro-punctures. This innovative technique strategically breaks down old collagen, such as scar tissue, initiating a natural wound healing process. This process activates fibroblasts, cells responsible for producing collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, thereby enhancing the skin’s regenerative capabilities.

This treatment is not recommended for individuals with active acne, eczema, or a predisposition to keloid scarring. Our practice employs topical numbing cream to ensure a comfortable experience, though it is not necessary for superficial treatments aimed at hormonal pigmentation.


Indications for Micro-Needling:

  • Irregular skin texture
  • Scarring (Acne & surgical)
  • Hyperpigmentation (sun damage-induced & hormonally induced)
  • Enlarged pores
  • Ageing signs and skin laxity
  • Dilated capillaries
  • Stretch marks


Dermaplaning is a gentle, yet effective skin rejuvenation treatment that employs a surgical scalpel to delicately remove vellus hair (commonly known as peach fuzz) and dead skin cells. This process not only reveals smoother, more radiant skin but also significantly enhances the penetration and effectiveness of skincare products. It is an excellent choice for clients seeking an immediate enhancement in skin texture and luminosity, particularly recommended a few days before special events for optimal results.

This comfortable treatment is associated with minimal downtime, making it a convenient option for those with busy schedules. However, it is not advisable for individuals with active acne.


Indications for Dermaplaning:

  • Dull skin
  • Rough skin texture
  • Sallow skin tone
  • Presence of peach fuzz

Deep Cleansing Facials with LED Light Therapy

Our Deep Cleansing Facial focuses on thorough extractions to clear the skin of comedones (blackheads), milia, and any underlying congestion. This treatment is an excellent starting point for those experiencing significant congestion, effectively preparing the skin for more advanced treatments like chemical peels. Safe for all clients, including those who are pregnant or breastfeeding, it is an inclusive option for comprehensive skin cleansing.

Complementing this facial, we incorporate LED Light Therapy, a non-invasive procedure known for its healing and antibacterial properties. This addition not only enhances the cleansing effect but also promotes skin health on a deeper level.


Indications for Deep Cleansing Facials with LED Light Therapy:


  • Underlying skin congestion
  • Blackheads
  • Rough skin texture
  • Breakouts

Facial Waxing

Facial waxing is an effective method for removing unwanted facial hair using hot wax. It is commonly applied to the eyebrows, upper lip, and chin, providing a clean, smooth finish. However, it is important to note that this treatment is not suitable for clients currently using Roaccutane or any prescription vitamin A products due to the sensitivity these medications cause to the skin.



Tinting is a cosmetic procedure that temporarily darkens eyebrow or eyelash hairs. The tint generally lasts between 7-14 days, subject to individual hair growth patterns. This treatment offers a natural enhancement to the eyes, making it a popular choice for those seeking a subtle yet noticeable improvement in their facial features.

Brow Lamination

Brow Lamination is an innovative process that perms the eyebrow hairs, resulting in a fuller, more defined look. This technique gives the appearance of thicker, well-groomed brows, with results typically lasting between 4-6 weeks. It is an excellent choice for those looking to enhance the natural shape and volume of their eyebrows.


Lash Lift

The Lash Lift procedure involves perming the eyelashes to create a pronounced curl, which opens the eyes and gives the lashes a longer appearance. This treatment, lasting 4-6 weeks, is a fantastic alternative to daily eyelash curling, offering a low-maintenance solution for those desiring a more alert and bright-eyed look.
