Dr. Tracey Garner

Aesthetic GP

T racey is a qualified family doctor with a passion for wellness, anti-ageing and aesthetics. Before starting Restore in Paarl, she ran her general and aesthetic practice in the beautiful town of Franschhoek for 11 years. She enjoys the journey of getting to know her patients and helping them to live healthier, more fulfilled, beautiful lives.

Tracey believes in a holistic, restorative approach to wellness and anti-aging and enjoys the journey of finding a unique solution for the individual patient: including wellness screening, lifestyle management, supplements, bio-identical hormones and supportive therapies, as well as facial injections, medical skin care, body shaping, medical weight loss and sclerotherapy.

Tracey has been actively involved in the aesthetic industry since 2006. She has a passion and flair for aesthetics, where she can practice the art of medicine in a beautiful way. She uses well researched, safe and approved products to restore and enhance natural beauty and is also experienced in using Botulinum Toxin for its general medical indications: hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), chronic migraine, hemi-facial spasm and bruxism (teeth-grinding).

Tracey is a proud member of the Allergan Medical Institute and trains doctors in the correct use of Botulinum Toxin and dermal fillers on behalf of Allergan. She regularly attends conferences and training with expert injectors both locally and internationally. In her spare time Tracey is a dedicated mom and wife. She is involved in her local community and enjoys running and outdoor adventures.

 Facial injections should be placed with the utmost care and knowledge of anatomy, form and symmetry to gently restore a fresh, open and youthful face.

SLENDER WONDER

Slender Wonder is a medical weight loss programme that treats the cause of obesity, and not just the symptoms. …read more

The program is tailor-made to your needs and may include HCG injections, supplements and various low-GI eating plans.

Slender Wonder is well researched and safe, and many patients lose up to 4 to 7 kg in the first month. It is effective because it targets Leptin sensitivity and essentially resets the way your body deals with fat. Leptin assists with normal satiety as well as mobilising fat from unwanted stores (non-structural, “bad” fat – healthy fat is not lost).

We monitor progress using an Inbody scale which gives you full reporting on your body composition (fat, muscle, bone and water) in key areas. Using the Inbody scale makes it possible to monitor true fat loss.

With the Slender Wonder programme weight loss is more scientific and predictable. We look forward to supporting you in your journey to reaching a healthier weight and lifestyle.

exclude hormonal and physiological causes. Hair filler injections containing peptides and hyaluronic acid are used to stimulate dormant hair follicles. A mesotherapy technique is used to deliver the filler into the scalp every 2 weeks for 4 treatments and thereafter every 4 to 6 months as a maintenance therapy. A range of medical shampoos and serums is also available to limit further hair loss.

FACIAL INJECTIONS

temporarily reducing the contraction of the muscles.

It is injected superficially in minute non-toxic quantities and helps to relax muscles for 4 to 6 months. It also blocks the action of sweat glands, which is why it is useful for treating excessive sweating (Hyperhidrosis).

Botulinum toxin is useful for reducing forehead and frown lines, as well as ‘crow’s feet’ around the eyes, ‘bunny lines’ at the top of the nose and lines around the mouth (peri-oral lines). It is also useful for lifting the brow, thereby opening the eyes and giving a fresher, younger look and may be used to prevent the corners of the mouth from sagging as you age, to reduce a gummy smile, lift the tip of the nose, reduce nasal flaring, treat muscular lines in the neck (platysmal bands), reduce irregular dimpling of the chin and correct asymmetrical facial movement.

Medical treatments with Botulinum toxin include the treatment of bruxism (teeth-grinding), chronic migraines and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating under the arms and on the hands) as well as asymmetrical facial movement.

Dermal Fillers
The Juvederm® range of dermal fillers used in the practice contains highly cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid (HA). The HA forms a smooth gel and is a synthetic form of natural molecules found in your body. It produces natural, predictable and long-lasting results. The effect is registered to last for 9 months to 2 years,
depending on which filler in the range is used. The effect can be easily reversed with an injection should this be necessary.

Receiving fillers is a relatively painless procedure as the product contains a local anaesthetic and the most common side effects are swelling and bruising, which can be reduced by correct timing, product choice and placement.

Dermal Fillers are used to fill lines in the forehead, around the eyes, mouth, nose and to fill the lips. They are used to restore a youthful volume and lift to the cheeks, as well as for reducing the jowels and enhancing the chin, jawline and eyebrows and correcting the nose.

Threads
Both PDO threads and Silhouette Soft R® threads are available for lifting and contouring the face and for improving skin texture. In every case, Dr. Garner will choose the best and least invasive treatment for your specific concern.

Using all the information at her disposal, Dr. Garner can help determine what medication, supplements, bio-identical hormones, diet and excercise programme would be best suited to lowering your overall risk for disease. Medical weight-loss. insurance medicals and medical skincare, as well as vitamin drips are also available.

The body then breaks them down and removes them over a period of 3 to 6 months.

The process takes about an hour and is relatively painless. Compression bandages are applied for 2 days after your treatment and a follow-up session is done in 2 weeks to treat any remaining vessels.

This treatment can be repeated every 12 to 18 months to remove any newly formed vessels.
Radiofrequency is available to treat unsightly facial veins and telangiectasia.
