NuSkinnovation is not a beauty salon in the normal sense of the word.  Instead, it is an aesthetic clinic which provides individualised, superior aesthetic services employing the very latest, state-of-the-art technologies.  However, what truly distinguishes NuSkinnovation as a leader in the aesthetics treatment industry is their passion for helping people, and the immaculate attention they pay to the needs of their clients throughout the entire treatment process.


It all started in 2013 when NuSkinnovation’s founder, Nicolene Pelster, went for her first Intense Pulsed Light treatment.  Intense Pulsed Light, or IPL, is a widely used treatment in the field of aesthetics and dermatology.  The light therapy procedure treats numerous skin conditions such as uneven skin tone, wrinkles, blemishes, enlarged pores and redness.  IPL treats the skin with a series of light pulses, which is customised to the skin’s needs, and can be used on the face, hands or other areas of the body, is entirely non-invasive, requires no recovery time, and can improve one’s appearance for up to a year.


Highly impressed with the results achieved by this treatment, the look and feel of the skin after treatment, and the added benefits – freckles had disappeared after only one session – Nicolene decided to do further research on the subject. 


Three years later, and followed by specialised study on IPL, Nicolene became a qualified Selective Waveband Technology (SWT) operator.  She established NuSkinnovation, a private company, in 2016 and acquired the latest system in SWT treatment – and the first and only of its kind in South Africa at the time – the SWT system.
