Which areas can be treated with the bio skin remodelling?
Bio skin remodelers are most commonly used for facial areas, but can also be used to rejuvenate the neck, décolleté, arms, knees, and hands.
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 surface of the skin 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 remodeler is a stabilised hyaluronic acid-based skin booster that can disperse through the skin so it acts more like a hydrator as opposed to a volumiser, containing Hyaluronic Acid molecules 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 remodeler 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.

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?

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

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?
Bio skin remodelling procedures using hyaluronic acid boosters require two treatments, each completed one month apart:
- Face: 2 treatments, 1 month apart, 1 vial per session = R 7 800
- Neck: 2 treatments, 1 month apart, 1 vial per session = R 7 800
- Face & Neck Combo: 2 treatments, 1 month apart, 2 vials per session = R 15 600
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.
