“We look back on 14 years of growth, many awards won and real success” says Maretha Bergh nee Strydom, owner of the clinic. The clinic was founded after Maretha’s father, a dermatologist, realised that he needed the assistance of a skincare therapist on a daily basis for the smooth running of his dermatology practice. Although not in partnership, he found that it would be beneficial for both businesses to run alongside each other. The dermatologist simply does not have the time to go through skincare routines, products, peels and deep cleanses with the patient and this is where the skincare therapist plays an important role. At that stage this was a new concept for South Africa. “My father found that if skincare therapists and dermatologists worked hand in hand, the therapist could enjoy the advantage of medical back-up and the two can work synergistically, rather than in opposition,” says Maretha. “This benefits not only doctors and therapists, but also the patient.”
Today The Health and Skin Care Clinic pride itself on professionalism, customer service and hygiene of the highest standard. We have a strong team at work with qualified and professional therapists employed. Maretha’s father has since relocated but still makes himself readily available to the clinic as a registered consulting dermatologist. The clinic works in liaison with other medical doctors for example; a dentist for teeth whitening & medical practitioners performing procedures such as Botox and fillers at the clinic.
In September 2009 the clinic proudly opened, in addition to our Vincent branch, in Hemingway’s regional Mall.
The clinic offers all beauty treatments, including facials, deep cleanses, manicures, pedicures, make-up, tinting, waxing, nail enhancements, massages, body treatments, lash extensions and airbrush tanning.
We also offer the latest aesthetic treatments in chemical peels, micro needling and derma roller, Botox, Dermal fillers, IPL for hair reduction and skin rejuvenation, permanent make-up and teeth whitening.
We run monthly specials where we offer discounts on chosen treatments for the month.
