Non-invasive Medical Procedure
Non-invasive Aesthetic treatments are performed by our in-house Medical Practitioner, Dr Susan Burger.
These treatments are performed in a clinical setting as out-patient procedures.
Treatments we offer:
Anti-wrinkle Injections (Botulinum Toxin)
Botulinum toxin is increasingly being used to treat a variety of aesthetic concerns. Traditionally it has been used to treat facial wrinkles (targeting the muscles of facial expression).
Here the toxin temporarily blocks the communication between muscle and nerve resulting in decreased movement of the targeted muscle (overlying skin appears less wrinkled and has time to smooth out whist the muscle is in a relaxed state).
Botulinum toxin can be used to treat the following aesthetic concerns:
- Wrinkles on the face: Brow, forehead, crow’s feet, bar-code wrinkles around the mouth and muscles of the neck
- Excessive sweating under the armpits, hands and feet
- Improvement of Hair loss on the scalp
Face Thread lift and Bio-stimulating threads
This non-invasive procedure is performed in the consulting rooms. It aims to restore sagging facial tissues to its proper position. Areas that can be treated successfully include
* Mid face and Jowl lifting
* Brow lifting
* Jaw line improvement
* Sagging neck
These threads are absorbable, thin “strings” of filler-like material.
It is placed very superficially under the skin to induce collagen production. This results in firmer, thicker skin. It is safe to use in the face and on the body.
Bio-stimulating threads can be used for:
* Fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck
* Sagging and loose skin on the neck
* Thinning/Sagging skin of the upper arms, stomach and knees
* Improvement in the appearance of stretchmarks.
Dermal Fillers – Face and Lip sculpting
Dermal fillers are safe, injectable “gel”-like substances which are used to create volume in the face and other areas. It enhances the contours of the cheeks and jaw, improves volume and shape to lips and can also be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles.
Most modern fillers also contain bio-stimulating agents that improve collagen and elastin production in the skin and underlying tissues.
This treatment is aimed at providing nutrition and collagen stimulation to the layers of the skin.
Multiple, superficial injections are used to deliver a bio-stimulating serum into the skin. This serum, together with the small injuries created by the injection, is what causes mesotherapy to be so effective.
What can be treated with Mesotherapy?
* Fine lines and wrinkles of the face
* Skin rejuvenation of the face, neck and hands
* Hair loss
Fat dissolving Injections (Lipolytic injections)

They are a nonsurgical technique which may help with reduction of diet-resistant fat deposits (fat pockets) in an otherwise slim body.
