At Beauty Zone I bring you the latest technological advancements in anti-ageing, skin rejuvenation, non-surgical facelifts with the use of machines. I specialise in body wraps for hydration, detoxification, relaxation, slimming & weight loss, as well as cellulite reduction, ladies massage & more..
If you need to lose a few cm's you will find a slimming treatment to suit your needs. Ultrasonic Cavitation, Laser Lipo, Fat Freezing, FIR Sauna Blanket, Ozone Steam Sauna can be used as part of a combined package or as a complete treatment on it's own. I also offer a range of Mesotherapy Injections and Supplements.
Looking after your body, health & mind has many ladies realising the importance of the connection between these three factors.
Improving how we see ourselves has a profound effect on our mental health and wellbeing.
This is one of the areas I want to expand into in the near future.
Beauty Zone is a professional Women's Weight Loss, Slimming & Wellness Home Studio situated in Monte Vista, Cape Town. My first therapy room was opened inside a hairdresser in Durbanville CBD in 2017, later moving to another room inside a hairdresser and finally a wellness centre in Bellville, Tygervalley. After doing a thorough market research my sister and I decided that to start off in the industry we needed to rent a room in a hairdresser as it allowed us more visibility and access to feet through the door.
Due to high rental costs, wanting to offer extended hours & limited parking for clients, I relocated a few years later to Monte Vista to operate from my home.
The decision to move and work from home came only once I had a regular client base which took about 2 years.
By working from home I was now able to reduce my prices to my clients and pass these cost savings onto them & offer lower prices than bigger salons that have overheads & staff costs.
There is safe street parking, back-up electricity in case of loadshedding, wheelchair accessibility to the room, wifi for clients who need to work, a secure environment, individualised attention, bathroom facilities, relaxation & rejuventation in a lovely garden setting.
ABOUT ME & MY CAREER:
The treatment room is managed by myself as the therapist and the owner and allows me to personally get to know my clients and give them the best treatment. I do all my own work. My sister, who helped me launched Beauty Zone, decided to diversify and follow her passion for teaching English online and currently is a very successful online teacher who teaches people from all over the world.
My career consists of 26 years in corporate banking & 11 years as a bank manager, at FNB.
At the age of 45 I developed an invasive form of breast cancer and was treated with chemotherapy and radiation. At this point my interest in Health, Nutrition & Wellness started to grow, however it was much later that I decided to leave banking and follow my passion.
Education prior to 2017
Bcom Degree in Human Resource Management.
Certified Trainer & Assessor with the EDTP SETA.
TEFL (Teach English as a Foreign Language)
Certificate in Marketing
Certificate in Banking
Diploma in Management Development
After leaving banking in 2016, the opportunity arose to help people gain their self confidence and achieve their health & body goals through fat freezing. From there the business expanded into other skin & body treatments.
I started with one treatment and from there expanded into others.
It has taken me 4 years to finally get onto my feet but now am impacted by Covid. I would say from my experience it is a very difficult and competitive industry to go into and is very affected by what is happening in the economy.
In Cape Town, Fat Freezing is one of the most popular treatments as well as a range of other body sculpturing and contouring machines. Please contact me to assess if these treatments are suitable for you. I have also done videos on my treatments which can assist you in deciding if these treatments are for you.

Warning to New Salon Start-Ups or Expanding Salons
Since covid I have been inundated with ladies booking fake appointments with me to find out more about opening their own businesses in slimming or asking me ridiculous questions.
So before you ask me ONE question I suggest you watch me ranting in a video about this:
