"The woman who did the procedure for me, followed up with a telephone call"
4 50Reviewed 29 Jun 2018 Review verified by phone.
Treatment Received: Acne Treatment
I had these pimples on my face and Skin Renewal centre in Willowbridge (this branch has closed now) treated them for me. This was one of the clinics that came up when I was searching for places near Durbanville.

I got the price at the clinic because this particular treatment was not listed on the website. It was my first time at a clinic like this, so I don’t really have a point of reference, but everything was fine.

The staff were professional and courteous. Marie, the woman who did the procedure for me, followed up with a telephone call, but I’m busy with exams at the moment, so I’ll go back next month for a follow-up. Service was excellent.

"The clinic seemed nice and everything was fine - doctors and staff were friendly"
2 50Reviewed 16 Jan 2018 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Mole Removal
My daughter wanted to have a few moles removed, and Skin Renewal was one of the clinics that came up during my research. I didn’t know anyone who had been to this clinic before, but it was quick and easy to book an online appointment so I thought we’d give them a try. In all honesty, we are unhappy with the results of the treatment.

The clinic seemed nice and everything was fine - doctors and staff were friendly, etc. The problem I had, was that the moles returned after they were removed. As my daughter’s skin began to heal, we saw that the original moles were still under the scar. This had a rather traumatic effect on my girl, and I don’t think she’d be willing to return to the clinic and repeat the procedure again. There are three moles that weren’t successfully removed, and she now has scars on top of these moles. The other issue I had, was regarding communication at the clinic. The initial quote they gave me did not include the cost of a lab report. I had no idea that all the moles would be tested in a lab, and this additional cost came as a complete surprise to me. There were no follow-up visits, and I doubt either of us will return to this clinic.

Treatment Received: Treatment for Wrinkles
I chose this clinic, because it was convenient. I was pleasantly surprised as it was super clean and trendy, great atmosphere and I was not kept waiting (maybe 4 minutes).

The therapist (Treatment for wrinkles) was so patient and perfect. She also took a look at my skin and made suggestions. I have been to spas and beauticians all over the world, but I must say this clinic was exceptional. Highly recommended. It is now 2 weeks later and the results are Perfect!

Dr Sedicka Laskery

Job Title:
  Doctor
Biography:

Dr Sedicka Laskery is an Integrative Medicine Specialist and an active member of South African Society of Integrative Medicine (SASIM). The combination of the best in Conventional Western Medicine and Complementary Medicine. She focuses on using integrated holistic interventions in the healing and prevention of medical conditions and to reach optimum balance.

Her experiences include working in the mainstream sector (prior to embarking into specialist studies in Integrative Functional Medicine) at Groote Schuur Hospital in all departments of health and day hospitals, Mitchell's Plain District Hospital in Internal Medicine and Red Cross in paediatric medicine and emergency care. This clinical experience sharpens the knowledge of a practitioner that further ventures into a field that approaches health care from a philosophical level of holistic well-being.

She developed an interest in Integrative Medicine years ago. Which was spurred on by her own personal health journey that created an inquisitive mind around exploring the medical field beyond the norm. She subsequently did postgraduate studies in integrative medicine.

Integrative Medicine is the merging and practice of using the best in scientific evidence of conventional western medicine and complementary medicine to treat the underlying root causes and imbalances in our health.

As an integrative medicine specialist, she uses platforms to make society at large aware of their current state of health in a very holistic and integrated approach. She acknowledges the impact of chronic diseases on people’s personal lives as well as on their work performance. She would like to assist society to gain a better understanding of their current health status in order for them to make informed decisions regarding a healthier and more balanced lifestyle.

Integrative Functional Medicine allows the scope to treat current diseases simultaneously with all physiological imbalances that may be present or waiting to present themselves in all aspects of human well-being ie. Mind, body, soul and energy.

Integrative medicine aims at restoring the balance and scientifically augmenting the body’s innate ability to heal itself. Supporting the innate intelligence of the body in all spheres that comprise our human make up. Perhaps even more importantly than this, is the journey, bringing personal meaning to illness as an opportunity for growth and increased awareness of self and the world.

Dr Laskery believes in changing the patient's life story to a story that creates more meaning through awakening the inner self. She is of the opinion that Integrative Medicine is the best foundation for a practice in health.

She joined the Renewal Institute team in 2017 and consults from the Cape Quarter, Claremont and Constantia branches.
