Improve skin tightness, firmness, boost tone, and hydration while minimising fine lines and wrinkles.

Bio skin remodelling is an injectable anti-ageing treatment that provides the combined benefits of a subtle lift from an ordinary soft filler along with the skin quality enhancing effects of a skin booster. 

What is bio skin remodelling?

Bio skin remodelling involves the use of stabilised hyaluronic acid boosters to provide noticeable improvements in the hydration, tightness and firmness of your skin. Injectable hyaluronic acid boosters also minimise fine lines and wrinkles to leave you with a more refreshed, rejuvenated and youthful appearance.

Which areas can be treated with the bio skin remodelling?

Bio skin remodellers are most commonly used for facial areas, but can also be used to rejuvenate the neck, décolleté, arms, knees, and hands.

Bio skin remodelers can be used on their own or in conjunction with other fillers, laser treatments, or botulinum toxin as a complementary, rather than a competitive treatment.

How does bio skin remodelling with hyaluronic acid boosters work?

Bio skin remodelling (using a stabilised hyaluronic acid-based skin booster) differs from ordinary fillers in several ways due to its structure which allows it to flow over an extended area to boost hydration and smooth and ‘remodel’ the skin. It is injected just underneath the skin’s surface where it disperses quickly and reacts with your own tissue to instantly boost hydration. Over the next four weeks phase two kicks in as it goes to work on boosting elastin and collagen production. This effectively remodels the skin and gives it a plumper, smoother and firmer appearance.

Our bio skin remodeller is a stabilised hyaluronic acid-based skin booster that can disperse through the skin so that it acts more like a hydrator as opposed to a volumiser. This can happen seeing that it contains Hyaluronic Acid molecules that are thermally bonded and not chemically cross-linked. Therefore, rather than just plumping and filling wrinkles, the slow release of Hyaluronic Acid in this particular bio skin remodeller also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, in turn improving skin tone, hydration, and the appearance of fine lines.

The result is improved skin quality that can last up to 6 months.

How are bio skin remodelling treatments performed?

The technique of injecting a bio skin remodeler is probably like no other treatment you have ever experienced before as it only requires treating specific strategic points on the face and/or neck. The injections are superficially placed just underneath the skin and are relatively pain-free making it one of the quickest and most comfortable treatments with lasting results!

How long do bio skin remodelling procedures take to perform?

Treatment time can vary between 30 – 45 minutes, depending on the area(s) treated. You’ll be able to go home right away, and no downtime is required.

You may have some swelling and bruising and will need to follow your aftercare instructions, but should be able to return to normal activities within a few hours.

How many bio skin remodelling procedures are required to see results?

A full bio skin remodelling treatment consists of two sessions, one month apart. The maximum effect of the skin remodelling treatment is usually seen 2 months after the second treatment. To maintain this beautiful result a maintenance treatment can be done 6 months later.

How long does it take to see results from bio skin remodelling procedures?

It can take up to a few days to see results from the first treatment of two involved in a full bio remodelling treatment, however, the maximum results are usually seen 2 months after completing a full treatment.

How long do results from bio skin remodelling procedures last?

The results from a full bio skin remodelling treatment can last up to 6 months, depending on the individual patient. A maintenance treatment after this point may be required to ensure successful, long-lasting results.

Bio skin remodelling: Before and After

Before & on the day of bio skin remodelling treatments

All make up will need to be removed prior to treatment, so please come ‘fresh faced’ if possible. Alcohol, aspirin, Ibuprofen and a range of dietary supplements including; St. John’s Wort, fish oils, Gingko Biloba, Vitamins C and E- may all contribute to bruising and are best avoided 24 hours before treatment.

After bio skin remodelling procedure

There may be some tenderness, redness, swelling and bruising around the injection site. This is normal and will subside, usually within a few days.  If swelling or pain persists, or you are concerned, please contact the clinic as soon as possible.  

  • Bruising is also common after any injections. Arnica gel/cream can help bruises heal more quickly.
  • Apply an ice pack to the treated area; this will reduce the initial swelling.
  • No recovery time is required and you can return to your daily activities immediately.  
  • Avoid touching the treated area within 6 hours following treatment. After that, light makeup can be applied and the area can be gently washed with soap and water.
  • Avoid alcohol for 24 hours.
  • Until the initial swelling and redness have resolved, do not expose the treated area to intense heat e.g. sunbathing or extreme coldness for 48 hours. Avoid heavy exercise for 24 hours.
  • Stay hydrated.
  • If you have previously suffered from cold sores, there is a risk that the injections could contribute to another eruption. Please ask your doctor for an antiviral script.
  • If you are using aspirin or any similar medication, be aware that this may increase the risk of bruising or bleeding at the injection site.
  • Your second appointment is due four weeks after the first one.

How long is the recovery period for bio skin remodelling treatments?

There is no downtime for bio skin remodelling treatments. It is advisable to avoid alcohol, aspirin or anti-inflammatory medication up to 24 hours before treatment.

Immediately after your treatment you should avoid wearing make-up, and avoid sports, swimming and any other strenuous physical activity for 24 hours. It is also best to avoid saunas and steam rooms for a few days after treatment.

How do I ensure that a bio skin remodelling procedure is the right procedure for me?

To see if this is the best cosmetic surgery procedure for you, always start with a professional consultation with a qualified and experienced cosmetic surgeon for an in-depth analysis of your facial features and to reach a good understanding of your skincare concerns and goals.

Are bio skin remodelling treatments safe?

Bio Skin Remodelling procedures are normally safe when performed by a qualified Aesthetic Doctor. Hyaluronic Acid (the main ingredient of the bio skin remodelling product we use) are substances that have been used for a long time to improve features and surrounding skin. Doctors have continuously improved on and sought out better ingredients to help them perform this procedure safely, with minimal or no adverse reactions. A thermally bonded form of Hyaluronic Acid is our ingredient of choice for bio skin remodelling procedures, providing the skin with superior moisture and other benefits without causing complications.

What does a bio skin remodelling procedure cost in South Africa?

The cost of treatment depends on your face shape, concerns, personal goals, how much product is required, and the treatment(s) required. You will be provided with an estimate after your initial Doctors consultation. We are unable to provide you with an exact cost/quotation pre-treatment as we place our focus on achieving your desired results.

Your personalised journey will begin with an in-depth consultation where you will be provided with an Aesthetic Couture plan which outlines recommended procedures and the exact steps required to achieve the results you desire; we quote on the steps required to achieve this outcome, not simply on the amount of product required.

Start your aesthetic couture consultation and contact us to book.

What are the possible risks and complications associated with bio skin remodelling procedures?

There are no long-term side effects. Injections used during the bio skin remodelling treatment are metabolised by the body completely.

No allergy test is required before treatment. The risk of allergic reactions is substantially reduced because our bio skin remodelling treatments do not contain any synthetic chemicals which some people might react to.

As with all non-surgical aesthetic treatments, there is a risk of side effects, such as minor bruising or swelling at the injection sites. These do not usually occur and generally subside quickly when they do.

Bio skin remodelling contra-indications

Patients with bleeding disorders or a compromised immune system due to, for example, infectious diseases, cancer, HIV or diabetes should consult their doctor before considering a bio skin remodelling treatment.

For those having recently experienced COVID-19, we also advise waiting for at least 6 weeks after infection before having a bio skin remodelling treatment. After a COVID-19 vaccination, you will also have to wait up to 6 weeks to avoid any risk of unwanted reactions. Cosmetic injectable treatments are not recommended during pregnancy or breastfeeding.

Where are bio skin remodelling treatments performed in Cape Town?

Bio skin remodelling procedures are usually performed in private cosmetic clinics and other medical clinics that have a focus on aesthetic surgery. 

Dr Nerina Wilkinson + Associates is a private, high end, a luxurious clinic located in the prestigious V & A Waterfront in Cape Town where Dr Wilkinson founded the House of Aesthetic Couture and Skin Science. Your surgery will be performed at Dr Wilkinson’s clinic, and you will be required to stay at the practice for +/- 1 hour after the procedure.

What type of anaesthesia is used when performing bio skin remodelling procedures?

If required, a topical anaesthetic can be applied to improve comfort (this needs to be discussed in advance of booking your appointment), but generally no topical numbing is required.

Is the bio skin remodelling worth it and are there alternative treatments?

If you are looking for a more rejuvenated appearance then YES!. However, it is important to remember that bio skin remodelling is not a replacement for contouring fillers such as the signature Natural-Lift™. Its effects are subtle but immediate. You will see a noticeable difference straight away after the first treatment with skin looking brighter and smoother. As time goes on these effects are enhanced and can last up to six months, depending on the individual patient.

What are injectable hyaluronic acid boosters?

Our stabilised hyaluronic acid boosters contain hyaluronic molecules that are thermally bonded and not chemically cross-linked, making them more fluid than dermal filler. These particular boosters act as a hydrator as opposed to a volumiser. The slow release of Hyaluronic Acid in this bio skin remodeler also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, in turn improving skin tone, hydration, and the appearance of fine lines.

J Anastasopoulos

I have been with Dr Nerina Wilkinson and her team since 2021 and the level of professionalism is unmatched. So are the treatments, they truly have a solution for almost every skin or aesthetic concern. Could not love them more!

A Davids

My experience at Dr Nerina Wilkinson has been nothing but significant! I feel that for the first time, I understand my skin. Thanks to the lovely Louné, that has created a specific skin plan and routine for me. I am 39 years old and struggle with Pigmentation and Skin ageing. Our goal is to make my skin look as fresh, natural and glowing as possible. I have the utmost confidence in Louné to reach my goal. I started my journey with them in January 2023 and my results after doing a Meline Peel are already proofs that I am on the best plan. I am excited and confident to reach my goal and cannot wait for my next appointment! I would definitely recommend their professional opinions.

T Strauss

This is my honest review. I was very sceptical when I made an appointment at Dr Nerina Wilkinson and Associates, I thought like every other place that has influencers going there that it wouldn’t hold up to its reputation. I was wrong! Very wrong. Dr Cindy Kerbel was incredible, she took her time to explain not only my skin but all the available options for my skin. She has such a warm and kind energy. You immediately feel cared for. Honestly you won’t regret going here. I cannot wait for my next appointment. Thank you!

J Bentel

To avoid prolixity, you know your people are undeniably unbeatable when arguments relating to your age arise in conversations (read online dating apps). Despite clinging to the ‘wrong side’ of 30, I’ve made peace with those who assume I am still at varsity. Between Marisa and Bernice (with a shout-out to Natalie (as well as the rest of the team)) my skin and jawline (and the rest) have never looked more delicious. And when the Finance and Facility Manager is also a vibe, you know you’ve found a gem of a team! In short, I’m addicted (hypothetically, of course) to the needles (in a healthy wholesome way, naturally) and am never looking back (in particular at old Facebook photos when youth was allegedly in my favour). Thanks for keeping my aesthetic *ish together.

A Wright

I am so glad that, at the age of 30, I finally decided to come here! Such a warm and professional atmosphere, and Chantel made me feel so comfortable and excited for this journey. After my in-depth skin analysis and consultation, I was very happy with the first treatment, and for what has been planned ahead. Thank you!

F Badenhorst

I’ve gone for 2 appointments so far and 1. the service is incredible, such friendly and professional staff, 2. I had my skin analysed and then also went for a skin treatment and my skin is thanking me for it. I cannot wait to go back for more treatments. Highly recommend.

N Jacobs

I recently went to Dr Nerina Wilkinson + Associates to help me with my Rosacea. Walking into their beautiful, tranquil space is transforming alone. I love that they have a signature scent, which smells amazing. Each member of the team is passionate about what they do and incredibly knowledgeable, whilst always staying informed with the latest in skincare, technology etc.

B Georgiades

During my extended stay in Cape Town, I (Black American female), visited Dr. Nerina Wilkinson + Associates to maintain my skincare regimen while abroad. I was fortunate to work with my skincare specialist to develop a tailored skincare treatment. Not only did I receive great service, but she also provided detailed insight into the current state of my skin and offered additional recommendations for overall skin health. Chantel was excellent, demonstrating both kindness and informative expertise, and the facility was beautiful. And overall, I did see improvement in my skin’s texture and evenness, but I still have a ways to go.

C Okpara

Growing up I did not pay much attention to looking after my skin properly, but after starting my journey with Dr Nerina Wilkinson + Associates it has become one of the most important steps in my daily routine and I am loving it thanks to their delightful, informed and supportive team. I have always struggled with broken capillaries and dehydration, but have never known how to go about treating it and preventing further damage in the future. I had my first IPL session last week and I am absolutely shocked by the amazing results thus far. I was very wary about leaving my home during the COVID19 pandemic, but the team at Dr Nerina Wilkinson + Associates not only made me feel incredibly safe but I was also treated like a true queen during my session. After the treatment I received a ‘lucky packet’ of aftercare products and Bernice was there at my every beck and call (as I had many questions which were answered in such a timely and gracious manner). She also recommended products that have made my face feel softer and more youthful than ever before and I can already start seeing/feeling a difference. I am so grateful to the incredible team and I look forward to a future of beautiful care and loving myself in my own skin.

K Fourie

Growing up in the US, I went to dermatologist after dermatologist, and each one said the same three things: I have acne, it’s genetic, and it could be a lot worse. When I moved to Cape Town a few years ago, I heard from a friend that I needed to go see the women at the Nerina Wilkinson skin clinic, so I made an appointment – but I didn’t expect anything different. I left their office after my first appointment with Kim and I had some real hope for my skin to improve. She changed my home care, worked out a long term plan for me, and even gave me her personal cell number so I could message her if things weren’t working. It’s been over two years now and I have never been so happy with my skin. Kim and the other women at the skin clinic form the kindest and most caring team of professionals and I can’t thank them enough. From scalp PRP treatments for thinning hair, to lasers and peels for my rosacea, I’ve tried my fair share of treatments at this office and every single one of them has been worth it – I can honestly say these women have helped me feel like the best version of myself!

A Newell

“I have spent too much money over the past 10 years in hope to sort out my pigmentation and skin texture. Visited many (un)professionals and bought the most mediocre skincare. I heard about Dr Nerina via a friend. My last hope and the best decision I made. I was introduced to the Me Line peel and their skincare…this is now my go to as my skin has never looked this good and healthy ever. Extremely professional team, Bianca was my therapist. If you are looking for skin changing results and are serious about proper skincare, you should visit them. It’s worth all the money you will spend. An investment worth it…”


“Thank you to the wonderful ladies at your skin clinic. I have always suffered from problem skin. They have over the last few months advised me on the correct skincare and through their dedicated treatments I am now proud to show my skin without wearing too much makeup.”

“Every day I look in the mirror, I can’t believe that this new skin in mine! I reached a point in my life where I thought that I would have to live with the consequences of the severe sun damage I have caused myself through years of surfing. Not only have you given me new skin Nerina, you have actually given me a new life.”
