World-Class Medical Cosmetic Centre to Open at Hyde Park Corner

A unique and world-class medical aesthetic and cosmetic institute opened its doors in January 2021 at Hyde Park Corner bringing the latest global treatments and technologies in aesthetics and anti-ageing to the Johannesburg.

The Specialist Laser and Cosmetic Institute (SCIN) @ Hyde Park will be operated entirely by specialist medical professionals and skilled aestheticians, with leading dermatologist Dr S’lindile Ndwalane at the helm. The clinic will offer highly professional and innovative aesthetic and minor cosmetic surgical procedures and medical management of aesthetic conditions, alongside everyday grooming treatments.

“Included in the list of procedures on offer at SCIN @ Hyde Park will be injectables such as Botox and dermal fillers, Silhouette Soft thread lifts, laser hair removal, laser vascular and pigmentation treatments and chemical peels, as well as anti-ageing facials and massage, and platelet rich plasma (‘vampire facial’) treatments,” explains Dr Sli, who holds a Masters degree in Dermatology with specialised training in Aesthetics Medicine.

“SCIN @ Hyde Park will also offer facial and body treatments, such as antioxidant facials, anti-free radical treatments, the latest anti-ageing and every day spa therapies, as well as intravenous vitamin drips – a specialised treatment that delivers essential vitamins and antioxidants directly into the bloodstream, for maximum absorption.”

The centre’s General Manager, Jacqui McGeehan, is delighted to welcome this leading-edge new tenant to the Hyde Park Corner family: “SCIN will boast luxury treatment rooms with the finest and most modern equipment available on the market – including the latest medical grade lasers, chemical peels, aesthetic products, and treatments on offer internationally. We are confident that this addition to our offering is going to be embraced by our customers.”

This is the second Specialist Laser and Cosmetic Institute branch to open in South Africa, with the other based in Cape Town at Wembley Square. SCIN @ Wembley has been in operation for 13 years and is an award-winning medical day spa that is a recognised industry leader in the world of aesthetics and embellished spa therapies and sets a benchmark in the South African MediSpa industry.

Plastic Surgeon, Dr Kamlen Pillay, who is the founder and powerhouse behind the SCIN brand, explains that the overarching goal of the Specialist Laser and Cosmetic Institute is to offer cutting-edge, results-driven therapies that are clinically proven and backed by medical data as well as clinical trials and which deliver results – positively impacting the lives of SCIN clients, rejuvenating and re-invigorating them and restoring their self-confidence.

“I am extremely pleased to be opening the second SCIN MediSpa in South Africa and to work with Dr Sli and her team. Dr Sli is a Fellow of the College of Dermatologists of South Africa and a member of the Dermatology Society of South Africa who gained vast experience in medical, surgical and cosmetic dermatology during her training at Chris Hani Baragwanath – one of Africa’s biggest training hospitals.”

“At SCIN we are passionate about delivering world class medical aesthetics to South African clients and, although this year saw many elective procedures taking a back seat, the demand for aesthetic medical services has not lessened – in fact, studies have shown that the global medical aesthetics market is on the increase – and we are excited to open SCIN @ Hyde Park to service this growing demand,” says Dr Pillay. “We can also assure clients that all necessary Covid-19 safety protocols will be followed at all times to ensure the health of doctors and patients.”
