"When I went there I was quite satisfied with the clinic"
Clinic's favourite review
100%Reviewed 09 May 2017 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone.
Treatment Received: Liposuction
I sent out bookings to a bunch of clinics and the only one with the decency to respond was the Melrose Aesthetic Centre. When I went there I was quite satisfied with the clinic. From the layout to the service everything was arranged to make my time with them as efficient and comfortable as possible. My only complaint was the price.

If you are looking for quality medical treatment you should seriously consider going to the Melrose Aesthetic Center (Just try to save up before you do)

"They ticked all of my boxes in terms of expectations"

Treatment Received: Medical Aesthetics Specialist Consultation
I had a consultation for a thread lift at the Melrose Aesthetics Centre, and was beyond impressed with the service I enjoyed. After reading various referrals online, I decided to pay them a visit. It was my first time at the clinic, and I was blown away by how excellent everything was - they ticked all of my boxes in terms of expectations.

The doctor really knew what he was talking about, and he gave me the best consultation so far. I can’t remember his name, but he is so knowledgeable and if I’m going to be spending so much on a procedure, I’d want someone like him overseeing everything. What I loved most, is how natural the Melrose Aesthetic Clinic is in their approach to plastic surgery. I plan on going back to this clinic when I’m ready to go through with the thread lift, and I might even have a neck lift done as well. I’d give them a solid 10 out of 5 if I could!

"I had no problem with the service or the staff, who were always friendly and professional"

Treatment Received: Liposuction
I decided to go for liposuction at The Melrose Aesthetic Centre. The clinic is near to my home and I chose them so that it would be convenient for me to go back for follow-ups and so on. It is too early to determine whether the procedure was good value for money because I’m still waiting to see the results.

I had no problem with the service or the staff, who were always friendly and professional, but I did encounter a few problems after the surgery and I had to go back several times. Soon after having liposuction, water started leaking from my legs - this was really uncomfortable. I don’t think it would be fair to blame the clinic or the doctors there because other people have seen good results. Maybe my body is just different and that’s why this surgery didn’t work well for me. I’m still the exact weight I was before I began treatment.

Dr Gordon Cohen responded to this review:

HI Billy. Drainage is normal after a procedure and is covered in the post care regimes. Liposuction is not about weight loss- but aimed at centimeter reduction. We will contact you privately to discuss your concerns as we value our clients confidential medical information.

I had liposuction at The Melrose Aesthetic Centre. The procedure went fine, but I think it could be somewhat improved.

Treatment Received: Acne Treatment
I first consulted with the clinic for pigmentation treatment but since I also have an acne problem, I was advised to first clear the acne. I have had a number of sessions at the clinic and I'm happy with their service.

Dr. Cohen is great, as is my clinician Ingrid. They are not just concerned about aesthetics but also what is best from a good practice perspective. I could almost immediately see and feel a difference once I started on the skin products, facials, and supplements that they recommended. Apart from all of that, even just the welcome at reception is always warm which is great! Price-wise, I can't make a comparison with other clinics since I'm not aware of their prices. I'm happy to pay for good products and good service so either way, it's money well-spent.

The doctor is great and the receptionists are great as well. I could make comparisons with other clinics as I am not aware of the prices in the market as it is my first time getting such treatment but I am willing to pay because their products work.

SAR3450  -  SAR15000
Cheek Augmentation  (30 mins)

Non-surgical facial augmentation, such as lip- chin, cheek and nose augmentation, can be achieved using a variety of dermal filler products.These are gel-like substances, mostly derived from a naturally occurring body substance called hyaluronic acid, which are carefully injected into the treated areas below the skin.

Their outcome is to fill in hollows, smooth out wrinkled areas and they can enhance the fullness and shape of lips, and correct minor shape irregularities in the nose and build up the chin and cheeks. The nature of the product permits the specialist to carefully and more precisely shape the areas required, compared to surgery.

SAR3450  -  SAR6000
Chin Augmentation (30 mins)
Some people are born with receding chins which cause an imbalance in the facial harmony. Injecting dermal filers can reshape and enhance the weak chin and give it new shape and prominence.
SAR3450  -  SAR10950
Dermal Fillers (30 mins)

We now stock a variety of Dermal Fillers to suit every need.

Tissue Fillers are used for facial sculpting procedures, i.e chin, cheek, nose, lip augmentation, volume restoration (i.e nasolabial lines) and hand rejuvenation. The cost ranges from R3,450 – R10,950 (depending on the brand and volume of the syringe).  

During the treatment the gel-like substance (Hyaluronic Acid) is injected into the areas of volume loss, giving an immediate improvement in the appearance lines and wrinkles, and so a more youthful and radiant appearance.

The result of a single treatment is immediately noticeable and can last up to a year.

SAR15000  -  SAR25000
Fat Filler  (30 mins)

The facial areas that can be improved with fat injection treatment include creases in the forehead or in between the eyebrows, and hollows under the eyes. Fat injection can also plump up or improve the contour around the nose, the area between the upper lip and the nose, the jawline, and the temples. Indeed, fat transfer can correct scars, sunken or hollow areas, and any place on the face or neck where fat has been lost.

Some of these facial areas need only one fat injection for noticeable and long-lasting improvement, whereas others will require more than one fat transfer to be adequately corrected.


SAR3000  -  SAR5000
Platelet Rich Plasma  (45 mins)
Essentially the treatment introduces platelet-derived growth factors from the recipient’s own blood in an enriched plasma form, after specialised processing, which can be done in the aesthetician’s rooms, if suitably equipped. Often termed a Plasma Filler, the injection of the prepared serum into ageing skin areas, helps the skin repair collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid breakdowns, rejuvenating and freshening the skin’s appearance. Results are seen, reportedly after around two months. It is also been referred to as “Vampire Facial®”.

Unlike other proprietary dermal fillers that use Hyaluronic Acid, and possible other synthetic substances, PRP uses the patient’s natural biology to address skin defects and volume loss, triggering production of new cells and collagen formation.
SAR1150  -  SAR2950
Dermapen™ (30 mins, 4 sessions)

The Dermapen® uses multiple needles that pierce the skin vertically with minimal pain compared to traditional Dermaroller rejuvenation. The Dermapen® skin rejuvenation treatment has great results and there appears to be much less epidermal damage. The automatic, high speed vibrating function of the Dermapen increases the effectiveness of the treatment by rapidly creating multiple insertions, quickly and clinically, dramatically reducing pain and discomfort for the patient.

Dermapen® Skin Needling is a novel way to treat: fine lines and wrinkles around eyes, mouth, cheeks, neck and décolleté. Other areas of the body can also be treated such as the abdomen, back of the hands and arms. All forms of acne scars, most surgical scars including facelift scars, abdominal scars, breast plastic surgery scars, post liposuction scars, orthopedic scars, stretch marks and burn contracture scars can safely be treated. In addition stretch marks on the breasts and body and loose body skin are also safely treated. Priced between R1, 100 - R1, 950.

Dermapen

® is recommended to treat:

  • Aged, sagging skin

  • Fine lines & wrinkles

  • Smoker's lines around the lips

  • Skin tightening and rejuvenation

  • Large pores

  • Stretch marks

  • Scars (acne, surgical and burns)

  • Alopecia* (when used in conjunction with prescribed medication)

  • And much more

Excessive Sweating Treatment
SAR6500  -  SAR7000
Non Surgical Excessive Sweating Treatment (1 hour )

Hyperhydrosis is treated with anti sweating injections @ R6,500 which takes approximately 45min to inject and will last roughly between 9 to 12 months.

While the injections, with a very fine needle are moderately uncomfortable, the benefits are worth it. The cost versus the other treatments is competitive and a study conducted over 3 years found that over eighty percent of the group had sweating issues decline by 75%, and almost ninety five percent only required 4 injections to control the sweating. High improvements were reported in self-confidence and reaction to social situations, compared to before the treatment.

This treatment can also be administered in a specialist’s rooms, and indeed, is available at The Melrose Aesthetic Centre, which has reported a high rate of satisfaction among its clients with the treatment.

Non-Surgical Facelift (45 mins)

The Sciton laser system works by emitting concentrated, brief beams of concentrated laser light to areas of damaged skin, and so removes thin layers of your skin’s surface, which will be replaced by younger skin growth. Only CONTOUR™ has the ability to provide a treatment that is optimized to your skin condition. Your wrinkles will soften and become less noticeable; some will disappear. Pigmented lesions will greatly improve.Laser Resurfacing can be performed as a once–off procedure for a more dramatic result or as a series of smaller, individual treatments with less down time (Micro Laser Peel).This system is effective in the treatment of wrinkles, epidermal nevi, acne scars, solar lentigines, actinic keratosis, hypertrophic scars and surgical scars, and for overall skin rejuvenation and skin tone improvement.

For a less invasive approach we recommend a full thread lift with Silhouette. (see thread lift)

SAR5950  -  SAR8000
Non-Surgical Nose Job Temporary  (30 mins)

Non surgical rhinoplasty is a procedure whereby a nose’s shape is changed with the application of injectable dermal fillers or alternatively embedded threading can be used to reshape the nostrils to make them smaller.

Neck Liposuction (45 mins)

Laser Lipolysis is a body sculpting procedure, which utilises a thermal process to gently heat up and destroy fat cells in the target area. Once melted, the specialist gently removes the liquefied fat.

An additional advantage of the treatment is that the heat stimulates the fibroblasts of the skin (cells that contribute to the formation of connective tissue fibres), which allows you to produce new collagen, resulting in a skin firming effect. This makes the treatment extremely beneficial post-pregnancy.

The entry points on the skin are less than 1 cm so that scars are insignificant.

An improvement in the treatment area is usually seen within approximately six weeks of treatment and continues to gradually improve up to four months post-treatment.

PRP/SVF Therapy for Hair Loss (30 mins, 6 sessions)

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is on the cutting edge of regenerative therapies. The PRP process of using your body's own platelets (found in your blood), concentrate the platelets to up to 18 times baseline and injecting these platelets into the area that needs regeneration..

In PRP facials/injections, PRP is applied onto the skin to stimulate collagen regrowth allowing the area to tighten and regain the youthful glow that you once had. Skin rejuvenation with PRP can be done on the neck and decolletage area which often shows signs of aging earlier in life. Hands too can be treated using PRP.

For PRP to penetrate the skin we recommend combining the PRP with Dermapen treatments for optimal results

Nutritional Counselling (30 mins, 6 sessions)
The single greatest tool we can use to achieve this goal is: nutrition. Inadequate amounts of given nutrients can lead to serious medical conditions of deficiency and impaired immune functioning. Conversely, over-eating and lack of exercise can lead to increased risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, lowered immunity and can also lead to psychological problems which further compound the health risks. When the immune system is compromised, in times of stress and when poor diet prevails, fatigue and chronic infections often result. These effects directly jeopardise an individual’s quality of life! So, making the right dietary choices including supplementing the diet where necessary, is an integral part of maintaining a state of wellness.

Laser Hair Removal (30 mins, 6 sessions)

Many people experience hair growth in areas where it causes them discomfort or embarrassment. Apart from being unsightly, the methods traditionally used to remove it, which are all temporary, can also at times, cause other problems such as ingrown hairs, cuts, infections, or razor bumps.

The Melrose Aesthetic Centre offers Laser Hair Removal which is a more permanent solution to hair reduction.  The laser selectively targets your hair follicles and heats them with infrared energy. Unlike other processes, the laser beam treats many hairs at once, making treatment of large areas practical. 

Depending on the amount of hair to be removed, you may need to be treated about six to eight times at approximately four to six week intervals. Treatment time and cost will depend on the size of the area being treated.
