  • Traditional Mesotherapy


Mesotherapy is a medical technique whereby active substances are introduced into the skin surface by numerous micro-injections to correct aesthetic disorders such as skin ageing, cellulite, flaccidity and alopecia, among others. The physical reaction is caused by the mechanical stimulus (the effect of the needle), while there is also a pharmacological effect due to the micro doses of the substances introduced.


Microneedle mesotherapy method uses a technique of skin microperforation. As a result, the structure of the skin is not a barrier for the active substances transmission.


Traditional Mesotherapy involves the cocktail of ingredients being injected into the epidermis using multiple punctures, each time releasing small quantities of the ingredients.


A chemical peel is a dermo-cosmetic procedure that consists of chemoexfoliation agents that are used to act on different layers of the skin. The peeling action causes the elimination of the external layers of the skin with the objective of stimulating collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycan production, thus enhancing its physiological and mechanical characteristics.

Advanced Treatments

Dr. Johan Botha, from Louis Leipoldt Medical Centre in Cape Town, visits Skinstitute on a regular basis to perform the following treatments:

  • Threading

    Specialised surgical threads are inserted into the skin with a fine needle in the direction that one wants to lift the face’s soft, sagging tissue.

  • Botox

    The most common use of these injections is to temporarily relax the facial muscles that underlie and cause wrinkles, reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

  • Fillers

    Injectable filler is a soft tissue filler injected into the skin to help fill in facial wrinkles, restoring a smoother appearance.


Plexr is an innovative medical device that was developed in Italy as an alternative to surgery. It uses the ionisation of the gases in the air to form plasma, which creates a small electrical arc that treats problem areas – without spreading unwanted heat to the surrounding skin.

Skinstitute is the only company in the Southern Cape that currently has the Plexr machine and treatments available.

The Plexr machine can be used to treat:

  • non-surgical blepharoplasty
  • face and body lifting
  • removal of fibromas, moles, verrucas, keloids, xanthelasmas
  • tattoo removal of any colour
  • post acne and other scars
  • excess skin lifting on arms and abdomen
  • periumbilical striae
  • acne
  • dyschromia
