Anti-Aging & Aesthetic Medicine

At our Cape Town medical practice we offer a comprehensive approach to anti-ageing and aesthetic medicine. By taking an integrative and functional medicine approach, our goal is to reverse and prevent certain ageing effects.


During your waterfront doctor’s visit, you will gain access to systemic and local treatment options in order to become the best version of yourself. With genetic testing and IV Therapy in Cape Town, we deliver a tailored treatment plan for anti-ageing management.


At Waterfront Medical our aesthetic medical therapies include botulinum toxin injections, fillers, chemical peels and growth factor micro-needling therapies. As part of a patient’s comprehensive aesthetic care, we also provide testing and treatment for hair loss and weight-loss.

What You Need To Know About Aesthetic Medicine In Cape Town

In reality, we are talking about the new niches in medicine. Twenty years ago, nobody talked about either of these specialities.  Today, two different disciplines have emerged – one that corrects cellular ageing on the inside and the other that corrects the damage caused by physical ageing on the outside.

One discipline repairs the inside of our bodies by protecting us from free radicals, which attack the cell membranes, and by correcting any hormone deficiencies, in particular the sex hormones, thyroid hormones, adrenal hormones and growth hormones. We can even address any mineral, trace element or protein deficiencies. Finally, we correct any bad dietary habits – excess sugar, excess saturated fat, not enough water, too much salt, etc. 

The other discipline, aesthetic medicine, repairs the effects of ageing on the outside. Above all, we talk about the anti-wrinkle action of botulinum toxin, which erases most facial wrinkles in 48 hours and for six months. We also talk about hyaluronic acid injections, which smooth facial wrinkles without affecting muscle activity. These are two extraordinary techniques that have revolutionised my practice, as a specialist in this field. We might add peels to the list – either superficial or those that go deeper – which are an extremely effective way of transforming the face. However, some doctors choose not to offer these treatments, as they require a lot of experience.

To this, we might add cosmetic surgery which is, in a way, the “big sister” of aesthetic medicine. Today, we can correct anything: nose, breasts, buttocks, belly, the oval of the face… A huge “transformation” is on the way before we can envisage implanting intestinal bacteria, the same as those that can only be found in people around a hundred years old. Or even envisage correcting our DNA or gene code. Here, I am talking about a vision of the future in the next 5 or 10 years. Anti-ageing medicine is carried out by doctors who specialise in nutrition, sports medicine and hormonal endocrinology. They have to be truly passionate about their work because the results of anti-ageing medicine are not immediate. It is a long-term type of medicine, so we can only measure its effects after many months of following the speciality’s guidelines.

Anti-ageing medicine seeks to modify and improve the psychological, emotional and physical aspects of every patient.
