SEE Polokwane’s First Female and Black-Owned Aesthetic Clinic
A married mother of two boys running a household while also holding down a demanding job as a doctor never thought that she would have any energy let alone time to establish and run an aesthetic clinic.
Dr Ellen Moila was working full time as a doctor up until she discovered that a lot of Polokwane women and men seeking aesthetic and anti-aging treatments had to deal with the long commute to Gauteng for these treatments. This led to intensive research into the aesthetic industry, subsequently a Diploma in Aesthetic Medical with the college of American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine.
A qualification that equipped her with the necessary knowledge coupled with many years as a doctor to open the first female and black-owned aesthetic clinic in Polokwane.
Dr Ellen Moila while busy with her research before establishing Orchid Aesthetic Clinic noticed that the Limpopo aesthetic market was already spending a lot of money on traveling than the treatments which led to poor compliance to treatments.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had far-reaching effects on aesthetic clinics around the world, however, as Orchid Aesthetic Clinic was one of the very first aesthetic clinics in the Limpopo province and with the first few years spent on educating its clients, the effects didn’t force them to close doors. This clever strategy meant that their existing clients were eager to engage them remotely, learning more about other services available.
Limpopo’s aesthetics industry is growing, and we have seen a significant change in the types of procedures available in the province, Orchid Aesthetic Clinic is proud to be one of the best in Limpopo.
