Aesthetic Team Leader

Dr Alastair Clark (Sandton)
M.B., B.Ch.., GPSI Cosmetic Dermatology and Aesthetic Medicine

Dr Alastair Clark trains other doctors in this country in the art and science of aesthetic injection techniques and designs and delivers courses in this discipline. Dr Clark was installed in October 2007 as one of twenty international Global Trainers to give instruction to doctors internationally. He is the only South African to have achieved this. Dr Clark is also an instructor of advanced injection techniques, giving official accredited courses throughout the year in South Africa.


He  designs and delivers courses in the disciplines of filler volumisation, neuromuscular manipulation with botulinum neurotoxin, IPL and laser, chemical peels, as well as physical treatments of the skin. Dr Clark has presented and given live demonstrations at numerous international congresses in Europe, Asia and South Africa. He is currently the Head National Key Opinion Leader for Silhouette Soft threadlifts of Sinclair Laboratories. He also served as International Key Opinion Leader and Trainer for Restylane.


His interpretation of the aesthetic need and facial assessment, combined with advanced injection and moulding techniques yield previously unattained results for non-surgical techniques.


Dr Clark has developed an approach to static (hypertonic) and dynamic (hyperkinetic) wrinkles, which greatly simplifies the use of fillers to achieve the patient’s desired goal. He uses his technique to treat anything from inexpensive lines and wrinkles to Lip enhancement, Nasoplasty, Cheek bone augmentation, Eyebrow ridge augmentation, Ear lobe rejuvenation, or complete facial treatments.


Dr Clark has been practising as a general practitioner for 30 years and previously in surgery and surgical specialities for three years. He was a Consultant to the South African Brain Research Institute during this time. He appeared numerous times on television and on radio phone in programmes and has published a number of journal articles on alcoholism and detoxification. He is an honorary lecturer at Wits Medical School. He was also the founding partner of Execucare, a company in association with Sandton Aesthetic Institute, that specialises in performing complete in depth medical assessments. He has completed the Centre for Diabetes and Endocrinology’s Advanced Course in Diabetes Care, with distinction, and the Foundation for Professional Development’s course in Practice Management.
