Rating from 55 Reviews Their customer service made my experience a pleasant oneAgnes, Ekurhuleni, 04 Apr 17

I am happy to say that my treatment for the Pigmentation procedure went extremely well and that their customer service made my experience a pleasant one. The clinic answered to my name as I felt it was a good fit before I made the booking. I am happy with the current results and looking for them to improve soon. At the clinic they conducted themselves in a professional manner. The place was neat, clean and tidy. I am happy with their service.

The clinic was very professional!Bertha, South Africa, 30 Jan 17

I went for laser hair removal, the treatment went well but I obviously have to complete the course to have a meaningful review of the service. The clinic was very professional, I enjoyed my experience there. The location also works really well for me - in Melrose Arch, I can go in between work breaks. The clinic is a bit on the expensive side compared to others who provide the same service, but I would be more than willing to pay it because of the extra care they take and ideal location for me.

Rating from 5 Reviews I can already tell the tattoo's are starting to fadeVanessa, South Africa, 24 Aug 17

This past Saturday I went in for my second procedure, (I have seven more to go) and in spite of the fact that the tattoos were done using very dark ink, I can already tell that they are starting to fade. The cost of the procedure is actually very affordable and the staff and technicians are just great people. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone needing to have these procedures done.

She has wonderful people skillsCindy, Cape Town , 29 Apr 17

After so much searching for a professional yet affordable medical aesthetic clinic I finally came across Crystal Skin and Laser. The day I called to enquire about the desired treatment Mrs Chene Voigt gave me a thorough explanation. She was very helpful and friendly and with that I felt comfortable and eager to book for consultation and treatment. When I arrived for my appointment Chene introduced and presented herself in the exact same friendly & professional manner as she did telephonically. (Her friendliness is really genuine may I add!) I was very anxious about the treatment as it was my first time and didn't know what to expect but Chene explained everything I needed to know about the procedure and she gladly answered any questions I had. When she started the process she patiently calmed my 'first-time' nerves. She also showed me the tools she'll use and she told me everything she was about to do and what it would feel like. From the removal of my make up, to the cleaning of the skin tag area, to the numbing cream, the laser she used and counted down every time she used it on my face right up to the actual removal of the skin tags. She spoke me through the whole process. She worked well & gentle with my face and treated areas. All in all Chene Voigt is amazing and so is the service she renders. Her place is neat and tidy. She has wonderful people skills, she's helpful, thorough, friendly, professional and affordable!!! Would I recommend anyone to Crystal Skin and Laser? yes! I am so happy with the results and I look forward to returning for my raised flat mole treatments.

I spoke to Louise Malan and she was very helpful in explaining everything. I went in for a consultation and am really looking forward to starting with my treatment in September. She explained everything to me well and took me through the appropriate package to suit my needs. I am confident that they will do a great job.

I was happy with my overall experienceAnonymous, Cape Town, 18 Aug 17

This was only one of five treatments I'm due to have - the procedure was for permanent laser hair removal. My only concern as things stand is that I didn't receive a satisfactory answer in regards to whether or not the medication I'm currently using will affect the desired outcome of permanent hair removal. I was happy with my overall experience. However, it's too early to tell whether I will encounter any issue moving forward in regards to my treatment.

Advanced Skin Solutions

087 550 7997 Richard road, Fourways, Johannesburg, 2191
Rating from 11 Reviews I highly recommend this form of skin treatmentC, South Africa, 25 May 16

I had needling done by Dawn Perosino at the end of April 2016 and I only have rave reviews about Dawn, the Derma Fix products and the treatment. My treatment was purely for cosmetic reasons to reduce pigmentation and wrinkles. Within days after the needling my skin started to flake and the texture of my skin already felt different. I changed over to the Derma Fix products and my skin adjusted very well. The home needling together with the products has resulted in my skin looking more radiant than it has in years and I receive compliments all the time about how amazing my skin looks. I already have a more even tone and the lines on the side of my eyes are not as deep. What I've been blown way with is the service I've received from Dawn. I've never received such high touch care & support from anyone in any industry I've dealt with. She is consistently in contact with me to ensure my skin is improving and that there are no reactions. Her absolute passion for her work and breadth of knowledge has made me feel totally cared for and her sense of humour is simply a delight. All round this has been an incredible experience. I highly recommend this form of skin treatment and especially the services of Dawn. Carmen Wilde

Best clinic I've been to so far. I highly recommend it!Sindi, South Africa, 02 Jul 16

I've been looking for a clinic that provides safe procedures for skin lightening. I was looking specifically for glutathione tablets, and any other product that would aid in melasma I've used other doctor's before, I'm not new to glutathione treatments. It was only till yesterday though that I actually understood the procedure I was doing. At Advanced skin solutions, Dawn (the doctor) sat me down and explained exactly how glutathione works in the body. She pointed out some minor skin damages I have caused by my previous skin treatments. I left there with a smile on my face!! Not only are her prices VERY AFFORDABLE, her establishment is neat, extremely clean, and very welcoming. She also gave me a few samples to take home and a booklet that explains every single product she has. She's the first doctor to openly tell me the dosage of glutathione her pills contain. Best clinic I've been to so far. I highly recommend it!

It was fantastic. The Surgeon went out of his way to assist me regrading my Scar removal treatment. He arranged for his wife who is a Doctor to come and check on me. He really went above and beyond, I really appreciated that! They weren't expensive at all, the place was a great experience. The Surgeon was down to earth and I felt comfortable as he was very approachable.

The clinic was amazing and I received quality treatment. I went in for Excessive Sweating Treatment at the clinic and my mom recommended it because we go to the same church as the doctor. It was great, I had my treatment done and I have no complaints. Everyone in the institution was nice and welcoming. The clinic was top standard and I felt comfortable there it was really cool. I was charged fairly I thought it would be expensive but it was not.

Completely painlessStephanie, South Africa, 23 Nov 16

My chin reacted to the anaesthesia and skin became very red and peeled but is settling down. Safe were very friendly and helpful, Dr is brutally honest on all that is wrong.

Dr.Nerina Wilkinson Plastic Reconstructive Surgeon

087 550 3622 ext: 73457 3rd Floor, Renaissance Body Science Institude, 183 Bree Street, Cape Town, 8000
Rating from 4 Reviews My former full B/ small C cup is now a perfect BMaria, cape town, 16 Dec 15

I had breast implants done in 2004 (size 260) and was thinking about removal for several years...they were beginning to sag and look matronly! After doing some research online I felt ready to have them removed with a fat graft to fill the voids....I had heard via word of mouth that Dr Nerina Wilkinson had expertise in this field and spoken to people who had seen one of her patient's results which were fabulous. I had the procedure done 3 months ago and couldn't be happier! My former full B/ small C cup is now a perfect B three months down the line (but so much more natural looking), and my legs and hips are slimmer (the muffin top has disappeared). I am 48 so I was worried that the healing would not be so good but it has been amazing, I receive nothing but compliments but the work is subtle so some friends are completely unaware that I had anything done, they just think I lost weight :-) Staying overnight at Renaissance Surgical Clinic was a 5 star experience from beginning to end. From arrival, and relaxing in the beautiful surroundings to waking up from surgery to smiling faces it was thoroughly enjoyable. I would highly recommend the clinic!

She's always been professional and so generous when neededFiona, Durban, 12 Oct 17

I'm an old patient of Dr. Nerina. I had terrible black chicken pox scars and she helped me heal and my face is clear. I also had a feather lift and eyelid surgery. I'll be going for breast augmentation soon. Depending on the response I get. I would highly recommend Dr. Nerina. She's always been professional and so generous when needed.

Rating from 4 Reviews The filler already looks greatEmma, Cape Town, 30 Mar 16

Perfecta filler in tear trough- for sunken tear troughs with dark circle. I enquired about a fat graft to this area, but decided, on Dr Bagwandeen's advice, to try a filler first, to see how I react, as it is such a sensitive area. He also recommended a cream to increase the thickness of the skin below my eyes. Every step of my experience with Cape MAC has been a pleasure. I was received a prompt and detailed response to my query. Dr. Bagwandeen is wonderful- he has a calming and informative manner- I felt completely put at ease about the procedure. He is truly skilled- I barely felt any discomfort from the cannula, and have had almost no bruising. The filler already looks great- I'm looking forward to seeing how it fills out over the next few days. The procedure was fantastic value, especially considering that the R450 consultation fee only applies for your first visit- any subsequent visit, you will only be charged by the vial (R2200 for a vial of Perfecta filler). Since we have not used the whole vial, it is being kept aside for me- I'll have a check up next week, and it'll be used to correct any asymmetries if necessary- otherwise, we can use it for another area (lip augmentation or dorsal hump correction). I would recommend this clinic to anyone- the doctor is skilled, meticulous, widely knowledgable and friendly. I look forward to enjoying more procedures at Cape Mac.

Their prices were more than fairZanele, South Africa, 24 May 17

Needleless to Say (despite the weird name) Is a benchmark of quality within the medical industry. I was pleased to have received such quality care and service. My recommendation goes without saying and is completely unconditional. The clinic charged a good price for a good service, so I was very satisfied with it.
