About Soma Skin Clinic
The owner of Soma Skin Clinic, Naomi Schmidt have been in the health and skincare industry for 15 years and is truly passionate about achieving the right results for her clients.” I believe that a holistic approach is the cornerstone of my treatments and all aspects are taken into consideration when consulting with you – the body, the mind and emotions.”
I completed my degree in Somatology in 2005 at the Pretoria Technikon and worked at a medical aesthetic clinic in Centurion for two and a half years. This is where I developed my love of advanced skincare, especially lasers.
Somatology treats a variety of skin conditions and incorporates basic and advanced skin and body care, including anti-ageing, hair follicle stimulation, slimming, various spa massage techniques, aromatherapy, reflexology and manual lymph drainage. It also encompasses the aesthetic aspects of the skin and body such as make-up, temporary and permanent hair removal, and hand and foot treatments.
I decided to spread my wings and “sail the seven seas”, quite literally, and worked on luxury cruise ships gaining extensive international knowledge and experience over a period of five years.
In 2015 I had the opportunity to live on a game farm in Bloemfontein where I managed a luxury African bushveld spa. It was a real experience waking up to the rumbling of the rhinos and giraffes in such close proximity; it was absolutely fascinating. Eventually however, it was time to find a place to call home and put down some roots and that’s when I decided to move to this little bubble called Sedgefield.
I have worked in hotel spas in the Garden Route for two years and in 2019 I officially took the plunge and opened my very own Soma Skin Clinic at Plumtree Trading Post, Sedgefield.
With a focus on anti-ageing, Soma Skin Clinic has selected the Optiphi product range from Skin Rejuvenating Technologies. Later I decided to include Lamelle Research Labratories and also invested in my first laser for permanent hair removal, removal of pigmentation and severe sun damage and the treatment of an extensive list of venous conditions. The machine of choice is the Candela Sirius which is an award winning IPL across the world.
Soma is a fast growing well sought after little business which delivers exceptional results but also thrives on building long term relationships with every single person coming into the door.
