Paarl Aesthetics Medicine - Beauty Salon in South Africa

Paarl Aesthetics Medicine

Thru shop Nothing Plein by Gizella K, 86 Main Street, Paarl, 7646
Scar Removal R 630 - R 1000
Improvement of appearance of scar using Dermapen or DermaStamp or subcision technique.  More than one treatment may be needed.  With subcision, the pulling (tethering) of the scar is needled and allows the scar to fill out and heal naturally.
Acne Scars Treatment from R 800
Scarring generally including acne scarring can be treated with skin resurfacing peels (a treatment series of 4 - 6 peels recommended); direct needling of the scar or with Dermapen, with Dermastamp (similar to Dermaroller in that it induces natural new collagen formation to fill up the scar and reduce the scar, and this also includes subcision of the scar) or with Microdermabrasion.  Deep scars can also be improved with dermal fillers.  So there are many options available.  I do not have laser treatments available and the needling results are equivalent or superior.  Scars can be very emotional marks to bear.
Stretch Marks Removal from R 1200
My clinic is in PAARL in the Western Cape. The DermaRoller used for this treatment has longer needles than for faces and is very effective.  Other options are medium to deep chemical peels and Laser, which I do not offer at this centre, but will willingly refer you to another facility that offers such treatments.

Nr 3 Morgenster Building, Cnr Nelmapius & Main road, Irene, Centurion
Rating from 3 Reviews Scars already look better than before I did the procedureSibusiso, Pretoria, 23 Nov 15

2006 I had an accident and sustained terrible scars, 3 on the stomach and one on the leg. I visited this clinic to see if they can improve the appearance of all these scars but I didn't do the leg for now. I did the needling procedure, the following day it looked real bad but there was no pain. After some time it improved and now its been 2 weeks and the scars already look better than before I did the procedure. The lady told me I should expect to see improvement after 4 weeks, so I will wait to see how it looks. The clinic is okay, small but professional. I have no one I can compare Irene with because it is the first time I did such a thing, but I can recommend her to anyone who want to remove scars or tattoos. She is a nice lady.
