"They ticked all of my boxes in terms of expectations"
Clinic's favourite review
100%Reviewed 21 Nov 2017 Verified user.
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!

Treatment Received: Excessive Sweating Treatment
I chose Melrose because they appeared on the top of my search results. I went here to get treatment for excessive sweating. The prices were on the website so I knew what I’d be paying before the time. The treatment was definitely fair for the results I’m seeing so far.

The Melrose Aesthetic Centre is very good - neat, and professional. I thought it was a nice place to get treatment. I’ve already had a follow-up visit. I think I’m done now and I just need to monitor the results over the course of 6-12 months. The professionalism of the staff was first-class, and I’d give them a 5/5 for excellent service.

Treatment Received: Pigmentation Treatment
Compared to the other clinics, this one had several positive reviews. I went here to have my pigmentation treated and I’m quite satisfied with the appearance of my skin now. The price was worth the results. I didn’t pay anything more than what was listed on the website.

Upon arrival, they showed me such respect. I would say they treated me the way any customer should be treated. Everything was excellent. No follow-ups or aftercare was necessary.

"The customer service at this place is first-class"
100%Reviewed 16 Mar 2018 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Liposuction
Melrose Aesthetic Centre had good online reviews and their communication before the appointment impressed me. It was obvious from their response to my inquiry, that this clinic valued potential patients. I had liposuction done here and I’m more than satisfied with my results. There weren’t any prices listed on their website, but I was given a quote after they made an assessment. I also think I might have gotten a discount because they were running a promotion at the time.

The clinic is very beautiful and professional. Because everything is so pretty, you just know you’re going to be happy there, and that you’ve made the right choice. I really loved the design of the clinic. About two weeks after the liposuction I was up and about - I just needed to take it easy because I’d done quite a few areas and the last thing I wanted to do was overexert myself. It’s not that I didn’t have mobility after the surgery, but I was quite cautious about doing too much too soon.

I have been for follow-ups, and I have my final check-up on the 28th of March. The customer service at this place is first-class! At the entry point, you are welcomed by friendly ladies who make you feel at home. Everything was so classy and modern. To be honest, you wouldn’t want to leave. I would have been happy to spend the entire day there.

Treatment Received: Liposuction
The Melrose Aesthetic Centre had the best rates, so I decided to have liposuction here. The clinic also had good reviews. I’ll only see the end result in three months’ time. So far, there has been progress, but I can only make an evaluation when I see the final outcome. The price was a bit higher than I expected. I was under the impression I’d pay around 25 grand, but I ended up paying close to 30 grand.

My first impressions were great. I’m still going for follow-ups now. My next check-up is at the end of February and then the final one will be some time in March. I’ve never had this kind of procedure done before, but most of the staff were extraordinary by my standards. Everyone was friendly, and they took good care of me. I won’t be able to rate the results yet, but the experience and service gets a 5/5.

Treatment Received: Skin Lightening
I decided this was the clinic for me after I read the reviews of previous patients (everyone looked so happy with their experiences and results!). At this point, I think the skin lightening treatment was worth the money. However, I haven’t seen much results yet.

I was impressed the moment I set foot in the place. The doctor explained most of the aspects of the process to me. I knew I was at one of the best clinics around. When I first started the skin lightening treatment, I needed to go once a week and then twice a month. Now the visits are monthly. The only minor issue I had with my experience here, was that there was no consultation fee on the website, so this was an unexpected expense I had to pay for the first visit. I’m quite happy with everything else, so I keep coming back.

SAR3450  -  SAR20000
Cheek Augmentation  (1 hour , 2 sessions)

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.


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.

Excessive Sweating Treatment (30 mins)

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)

SAR8000  -  SAR42000
Silhouette Lift™ (1 hour , 2 sessions)

Often referred to as the lunch time facelift, the Silhouette face/neck lift is a minimally invasive technique using specialised surgical threads, used to lift up soft, sagging tissues. The threads, made of extra-strong inert polymer, are slipped down from an incision at the temple hairline, and then attached at the jowls and the nasal labial folds. This is ideal for sagging Jowls,Neck, Cheeks, Brow Lifting, The Turkey Neck etc.

 

This treatment allows the skin to present smooth and bright, resulting in fewer wrinkles this improving the skin's overall texture and youthfulness.

SAR12000  -  SAR42000
Thread Lift (1 hour 30 mins, 2 sessions)

Miracu/Silhouette embedded treading are treatment that involves the use of PDO, polydioxanone, sutures that are injected into the hypodermis if the skin, providing a lifting and smoothing effect. The various thread lengths give the practitioner a wide range of treatment options, that dissolve in a natural manner over a course of months, whilst synthesizing new collagen production in the treated area. This treatment allows the skin to present smooth and bright, resulting in fewer wrinkles this improving the skin's overall texture and youthfulness.

Brow Lift (30 mins)

Are you frustrated with sagging skin in your forehead region? Then the forehead lift and eyebrow lift, also called "the brow lift," may be just what you're seeking. This popular procedure is used to help reverse the aging process (think deep wrinkles and creases across your forehead caused by years of facial expressions and environmental effects). But don't be fooled.

 Younger people are also candidates if they have inherited traits, such as lowbrow or other problems.

Butt Lift (2 hours 30 mins, 2 sessions)

In order to do body sculpting using a fat graft, a Liposuction treatment must first be done to secure sufficient fat. The determination for how much Liposuction you need is based on the area you desire to be sculpted. The first area of Liposuction costs R19,950.00 and there is an additional charge of R5,000 for each subsequent area. 

The subsequent cost of micro fat transfer for body sculpting is determined by the area to be treated and ranges between R15,000 and R25,000.

Neck Liposuction (45 mins, 2 sessions)

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.
SAR25000  -  SAR32000
Neck Lift (2 hours , 2 sessions)

The Trampoline Neck Lift is a minimally invasive technique used to lift and tighten sagging tissue in the neck. This is a non-surgical alternative to the traditional surgical neck lift for neck rejuvenation. The technique is primarily performed to redefine the jawline, reduce the loss of a sculpted neck contour, minimize the appearance of neck skin laxity and eliminate the appearance of a double chin.

Hair Loss Treatment

SAR5000  -  SAR20000
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.

Blue light therapy targets the sebaceous glands, and not the surrounding tissues, killing the bacteria that cause acne. 

We will also recommend IS Clinical products and Xymogen Supplements to finish off the regime.

Waxing and Hair Removal

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.
