What our clients say…

I felt unhealthy, bloated, unhappy with my weight and I had extremely low energy levels. I contacted The Melrose Aesthetic Centre and after a consultation with Dr Cohen, decided to try the Detox & Wellness programme. At first I didn’t know what to expect, I had tried so many diets before and my main concern was that this would just be another failed attempt to lose weight. A few days into the programme I was most surprised to find that that this didn’t “feel” like a diet at all. I now think about my food choices, eat smaller portions (without ever feeling hungry), my skin is clearer, I have more energy and I feel a lot more upbeat and positive about life. And of course – I am losing weight by the day!I will recommend the Detox and Wellness programme to anyone who wants to lose weight and feel great.
I would recommend Dr Cohen to anyone! I know why people go to him – it’s because he is the absolute best!
Dr Cohen,
Just a little note to say how happy I am with the treatment I had from yourself and the helpfulness and efficiency of Esti.
A few of my flight colleagues will definitely be visiting you in the future, and I will certainly be returning.
Thanks to The Melrose Aesthetic Centre and in particular Dr Cohen and Dr Tamara, I look and feel like a new person and my self esteem is so much better!  Thanks for their tireless efforts to make me look and feel the best I can be.
When it comes to the Detox and Wellness programme, everybody isn’t always motivated by a desire to lose weight. One of our clients who recently completed the course suffered from low energy levels and just wanted to feel and look healthier. In her case, the weight-loss was an additional bonus. When asked about her motivation to embark on the programme, she simply stated: “I wanted to feel healthier, have more energy and change my lifestyle”. Well, she’s done just that. She feels more confident to go to gym, actually enjoys the exercise and feels and looks much healthier and happier. She’s passed her newly acquired good eating habits on to her children and other family members, so all of them are benefitting from an improved, healthier lifestyle. Her final say about the programme: “This is an amazing programme. It has taught me so much and has literally been life-changing for me. Thank you, Dr Cohen.
My stomach is as flat as a pancake. I’M IN 7th HEAVEN! I wear clothing two sizes smaller than before, and for the first time in 20 YEARS had the guts to buy a dress!!! I’m very busy at school, but I would like a follow-up next week so you can take photos, BECAUSE I am so proud of my stomach!! Thank you for accompanying me on this journey, and especially that doctor was prepared to help me. Three other doctors told me I was too fat and they didn’t even want to give me an appointment! I am so grateful.
After a visit to my spiritual teacher, who was of the opinion that I was literally storing unhappy memories and emotional baggage in the excess body weight I was carrying around with me, I decided that drastic intervention was called for. I booked a consultation with Dr Cohen, received my eating plan and products and I was well on my way to “unloading” all the unhappiness I was carrying around with me. After only a few days of following the eating plan I can truthfully say that my energy levels have increased, I’ve lost weight and I’m experiencing the most remarkable feeling of breaking free from all the negative feelings and emotions that weighed so heavily on my body and mind. The Detox and Wellness programme has truly made the most remarkable difference in my life – physically, spiritually as well as emotionally.
From a really young age, I have always been insecure about my massive nose and I longed  to one day wake up with a smaller nose. My prayer was  answered when Dr Cohen mended it. I can now  take more pictures of myself as I had previously thought that I was not photogenic. I am overjoyed with the results!
Due to my double chin, I hated looking at my profile every time I passed a mirror. I went to see Dr Cohen at The Melrose Aesthetic Centre who recommended Liposuction. The treatment is aimed at body sculpting and very effective for the elimination of stubborn fat which doesn't go away by any other means such as diet and exercise. It also has a firming effect on the skin overlying the treated area which would take care of the sagging skin that often accompanies a double chin. Although I was afraid that it would be painful and that it wouldn'twork, I decided to go ahead with the treatment nevertheless. A few weeks after the procedure I can say that I'm so glad that I underwent this procedure – all my expectation have been met and fulfilled. It has made a huge difference in my self –confidence and the way I interact with friends, family and colleagues. I used to constantly keep my hand under my chin when in conversation with other people, but since undergoing the liposuctionprocedure. I'm not shy about this area any more. It is such a relief to be rid of something that has been bothering me for so long!!
I now love telling people my age and I’m constantly told I don’t look it. I have much more confidence and would recommend laser resurfacing to anyone as it gives you back at least ten years.
Dear Dr Cohen, I recently had a non-surgical rhinoplasty performed by yourself. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the procedure you performed. Before the procedure I had a noticeably crooked nose, which spoilt the symmetry of my face. I was self-conscious about this, especially when photographs were being taken. I was not enthusiastic about having surgery due to the possible complications and read about the non-surgical rhinoplasty, which sounded like a good alternative. After consultation with you, I decided to go ahead with the procedure. I am glad I did. I am very satisfied and happy with the results. My nose now appears straight and aesthetically more pleasing, with the result that I feel better about my appearance and more self confident. I am glad that I decided on the procedure and also that I had it performed by yourself. The results are excellent and once again, thank you.
Due to all the disappointments I’ve experienced - treatment after treatment that didn’t work - I wasn’t expecting much from this, but I was prepared to try anything. Naturally I was concerned about possible side effects, but there weren’t any - and my headaches are now gone completely. I was pleasantly surprised and incredibly relieved! Because I don’t suffer from these constant headaches anymore, my whole outlook on life has changed. My concentration has improved and my productivity and lust for life has been restored. I thing people in my situation, who suffer from unrelenting headaches – should definitely give it a try.
I did a tremendous amount of research on the various techniques, procedures and facilities that offer treatment. I had to look at various pros and cons before deciding on The Melrose Aesthetic Centre. And I do not regret this decision one bit. My expectation was for a reduced neck/jaw line resulting in a better side profile and giving me more confidence. My expectations were definitely met. Results were noticeable within the first month.  It is now 4 months after the procedure and  I am very happy with the results. The staff at the facility were great. From reception right through to the supporting staff. All and all I would recommend this procedure and facility to anyone. If I consider any future procedures I will definitely revisit The Melrose Aesthetic Centre.
I have been suffering from terrible headaches for several years and I’ve been to many neurologists, physiotherapists, GP’s and other medical professionals in my quest for relieve from these disabling migraines. In my search for a solution, I came across an article about Botox treatments for headaches and I decided to give it a try.
Some time ago I went through quite a traumatic stage in my life. During this time I lost a lot of body weight and my face also showed the signs of the tough times I had been through. The condition of my skin deteriorated and along with it came wrinkles, sagging and an overall lacklustre appearance. I thought about having a surgical face-lift done but after consulting with Dr Cohen at The Melrose Aesthetic Centre I decided to rather go with the non-surgical option. Dr Cohen recommended a laser treatment which would resurface my skin and not only get rid of the lines and wrinkles but also improve the general condition and elasticity of my skin. In spite of some initial apprehension I am very glad that I followed his advice. Today my skin and general appearance is that of a much younger person and I receive compliments from all my family and friends about how good I look! I would also like to thank all the staff at The Melrose Aesthetic Centre for their support and professional conduct during and after my treatment. I am truly happy with the results!
I can say with 100% certainty that I made the right decision!

Being someone with very high expectations, I can honestly say that although it has only been 5 weeks since my procedure, I am incredibly happy with the results. I do still have a way to go to really see the final effect, which I was briefed on and I am really looking forward to seeing my body change in the next few months. The procedure and recovery were always explained to me properly and so far, everything has been pretty much to the book. I have had many compliments about my new shape, from friends and colleagues. I had no fears or concerns about doing the treatment with Dr Cohen because all the staff were so incredibly helpful and professional and I always felt that I was in very good hands. I am now able to wear tight tops and pants with total confidence and I am loving this new me! Thank you so much to Dr Cohen and The Melrose Aesthetic Centre for your commitment to excellence and your amazing service. It was a huge pleasure dealing with you.
Dr Cohen! I went out to supper last night. Saw friends that I hadn’t seen in a while. Their first comment?! “Oh my word, look at you! You look amazing. Look at your skin!! You haven’t aged a bit. You are looking lovelier and younger”. It is such a good feeling to look good. Thank you so much! I love you forever and you are going to make sure I keep looking my best. This is such a value add to my new plans in business. You don’t realise what a positive impact you have on my life. My warmest regards and biggest hug.

Before saying that you are an extraordinary doctor, I want to tell you that you are an extraordinary human being. Thanks for showing so much care and concern, I was an ordinary patient of ordinary means but your team took care of me as if I was the most important person on earth. If every doctor strives to be as caring and generous as you, the world would be filled with smiles and laughter instead of paid and sorrow. Thanks for everything doc.

My expectations were exceeded, my skin is back to the flawless condition it was in my late 30’s and the Liposuction resulted in my stomach being flat again.

I continuously receive compliments on my skin but also on the overall shape of my body.   People can’t believe that I turn 50 at the end of the year.I am making sure I get regular facials and religiously use my IS Clinical products on my face. I gym 5 times a week and have never looked or felt better. I definitely recommend Dr Cohen and his team to anyone that want to look fabulous and make healthy lifestyle changes.
I haven’t officially thanked you, but wanted you to know that you and your team have changed my life as I've known it for the last 29 years! I turn 30 in a few weeks and look forward to it now more than ever.
Just like Picasso is known for his art, Bill Gates for his technological innovations, Audrey Hepburn is seen as an icon of her time, Dr Gordon Cohen is known for his brilliant skills and knowledge in aesthetic procedures. He is absolutely the best in this industry and gives you his honest opinion all the time. His Botox skills are impeccable. He never left a mark on my face and as scared as I am of injections I do not feel a thing when he gives me Botox injections. He is the BEST in the industry and the results will always be beyond your expectations. I am proud to be his patient.
