How does a QMS Medicosmetics Facial work?

A QMS Medicosmetics Facial begins with a personalised skin analysis to identify specific skin concerns and tailor the treatment to your individual needs. 

The facial combines a high concentration of active ingredients with advanced bioengineering techniques to produce collagen, rejuvenate the skin, and correct pigmentation. The process involves deep cleansing and the application of fruit acids, providing an immediate anti-ageing effect and a post-treatment glow.

An excellent team who will tailor make a skin treatment plan for you. They are all extremely knowledgeable and professional and use all the latest anti aging technologies and treatments. Amazing attention to detail from the beautiful space to the follow up care kits and check in emails from the therapists. Really a five star experience.

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.”

“My grateful thanks to you all for everything you do for me, and I mean that from the heart of my bottom!”
