Aesthetics

Aesthetic medicine complements integrative medicine. 

With an Advanced Diploma in Aesthetic Medicine and an affinity for the art of beauty, Dr van Dyk can perform several procedures that allow the patient to look natural and rejuvenated.

The following specialised treatments are available:

Botulinum Toxin is injected to paralyse the muscles in the face, stopping movement that results in wrinkles.

Areas where Botulinum Toxin can be used:

  • Forehead
  • Frown
  • Brows
  • Crow’s Fees

Dermal Fillers are a naturally-derived or synthetic material directly injected into the skin to plump the area.

Dermal fillers can be used to correct many concerns related to ageing:

  • Adding volume and smoothing out “laugh lines”
  • Plumping up the lips and smoothing out lines around the edges of the lips
  • Enhancing the shape of cheeks and filling out gauntness
  • Filling out hollows under the eye area

The cost is determined by the type and quantity of filler/s used.

Administered as a facial peel, they enhance and smooth the texture of the skin.  It is an effective treatment for blemishes, wrinkles and pigmentation.  The outer layers of the skin are exfoliated improving skin tone, texture and colour.

For optimal results, a course of treatments is recommended.  Cost is dependent on the type of peel administered.

In this procedure, multiple injections of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and hyaluronic acid are injected into the skin.

Aesthetically, current uses include fat and cellulite reduction, hair regrowth, weight loss, wrinkle elimination, scar improvement, acne treatment and stretch marks.

This treatment involves injecting plasma into the skin thereby improving facial lines and wrinkles as well as skin pigmentation.

It can be performed on the face, neck, chest and hands.

This procedure involves melting and removing unwanted fatty deposits on the body in areas that can’t be adequately shaped with exercise or diet, normally thighs, buttocks, hips, stomach and chin.

Threads offer a longer lasting result when compared to Botulinum Toxin and fillers.

A special, implantable surgical thread is used to lift sagging skin on the forehead, eyebrows, mid-face and neck.  The fine filaments in the threads attach to the tissue and when the body produces new skin cells, they surround the filament creating the “lift”.

Threads offer several benefits:

  • Rejuvenates and firms the skin
  • Defines facial contours
  • Provides a more affordable and less invasive option to a full facelift
