 Aesthetic Medicine is the multi-disciplinary field of medicine that aims to enhance cosmetic appearance through a series of non-invasive, non-surgical and relatively painless treatments.


Your first consultation includes a comprehensive assessment by Dr Alex Cornell and the formulation of a tailor-made treatment plan, based on your unique concerns, goals and budget.


*Only charged when no medical aesthetic treatments are performed at your Doctor’s consultation 



Using Botulinum Toxin type A is one of the fastest growing wrinkle relaxing cosmetic procedures today. The medical industry has been using this biologically produced protein of Clostridium Botulinum bacteria since the 1980s as medication for various conditions.


For the last 10 years, this simple non-surgical treatment has become increasingly popular to both prevent and smooth away wrinkles to gain a refreshed and youthful look.

As we age our skin loses moisture, elasticity and strength.  Therefore after years of constant facial expressions, we start to develop wrinkles which appear with facial movement. These dynamic wrinkles become more noticeable and deeper which often results in a constant tired or ‘angry’ look. This treatment offers a natural-looking solution.


Botulinum Toxin blocks the nerve transmission to reduce the contractions of the facial muscles. After the treatment, the facial muscles are relaxed resulting in the smoothing out of existing wrinkles. These effects last between three to six months and prevent new wrinkles from forming.


Dr Alex Cornell uses an ultra-thin syringe needle to inject into the muscles that cause wrinkles. Treatments are quick and almost painless.


The full effects treating wrinkles can be visible within 7 – 14 days after the injections, but this can also be used for effectively treating a variety of different conditions other than wrinkles, such as hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating under the arms, as well as the palms of the hands and soles of the feet) Results for this usually last around 6 months.

The first consultation takes between 30 to 45 minutes and subsequent treatments take just 15 minutes.


Bruxism (teeth grinding) and chronic headaches/migraines can also be treated. This reduces jaw aches, neck pains and obviously teeth grinding.

Enhance your natural features with injectable soft tissue fillers. Increase volume, erase or soften wrinkles, augment lips, assist with facial contouring and induce collagen production.


Having dermal fillers is a quick and easy treatment. Dermal Fillers are soft tissue fillers made from Hyaluronic Acid.  This is a naturally occurring human protein responsible for cushioning the skin. Hyaluronic acid is hygroscopic which means that it draws water strongly to it and therefore the treated area increases in volume.


This is a non-invasive treatment which is widely used to restore youth and add volume to the face. As we age, our skin begins to lose both elasticity and hydration. This natural ageing process when combined with the effects of gravity, results in fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin.


Administered via tiny injections that provide instant results with a minimal amount of discomfort or downtime. Dr Alex Cornell uses non-permanent dermal fillers which last between 6 – 12 months and have great results for both men and women. Dr Alex is also able to use topical and/or local anaesthetic where necessary to reduce any discomfort during the procedure.


There are a range of Dermal Fillers available; the type, cost and amount of fillers used will be determined by the area you wish to treat and your desired results.

Professor Ceccarelli from Italy defined many years ago the ability of a NATURAL formulation of Vitamin C and other key ingredients to scientifically dissolve fat cells. Using his groundbreaking, effective formula, we are able to safely create permanent fat cell removal using either a series of superficial mesotherapy-type injections or using a cannula into the fatty area. This is used on areas such as a double chin, or fatty deposits on the face, but also stubborn areas of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise. This is not a weight-loss solution. 


The resultant fat melting is permanent (if you keep up a healthy lifestyle, and don’t create the deposition of NEW fat), and the effect can be seen as early as 1 week after the injections.

Usually, 1-3 sessions are needed for an area depending on the thickness of the fatty layer.

Sessions are spaced 1-4 weeks apart, depending on various factors.

Some bruising and swelling immediately after is normal.


Areas which can be treated are:

Face: eye bags, fatty nasolabial folds/bulges, fatty jowls, double chin and jawline

Body: resistant fat on the tummy, love handles, inner thighs, saddlebags, bra bulges, upper arms and the inside of knees
