Professional Cosmetic Practice
For many years, conventional dermatology was only about optimizing skin health and treating diseased skin. However, the field of dermatology has grown rapidly since then. As technology progresses, so does the industry of dermatology and medical skin treatments. Thus, there are currently enormous amounts of treatments available on the market to treat the skin. Many are of real benefit, but many are not worth the hype. The consumer is overwhelmed by advertisements of dermatologists or skin care companies, all claiming wondrous effects. As a result, the consumer can sometimes be mislead by false results and unknown products. Therefore, Cosmetic Centers like Noviskin exist. We aid the customer with expert advice and knowledge through the body of professional skin specialists and dermatologists. We have a number of registered Professional Dermatologists with years of experience like Dr Mariaan Duvenage, Dr Tarryn Jacobs, Dr Petunia Malahlela and Dr Jutta Carpenter-Kling.
Skin Specialists or Dermatologists are specialist physicians who completed a master’s degree in skin diseases for four years after graduating from medical school. In the USA, the equivalent qualification is to be a Board Certified Dermatologist.

Dermatologists and Dermatology
Field of Dermatology
The field of Dermatology is an area of medicine that can be categorized as medical, surgical and cosmetic. Dermatology is mainly concerned with the health of skin, which includes hair and nails. A large number of diseases and disorders are treated within this field. For example:
- Eczema – Irritation and inflammation of the skin resulting in redness, itchiness and rash. Small areas to whole body.
- Acne – Hair follicles plugged with oil and dead skin cells causing pimples. Generally, it affects teenagers, but can affect people at all ages.
- Hair disorders – Conditions can range from hair loss, excessive hair growth, scalp diseases and more.
- Rosacea – Chronic and inflammatory skin in the facial area, causes redness and visibility of blood vessels.
- Skin cancers, and many more other disorders and diseases.
There are a number of procedures that can be used to treat these disorders and diseases. For example:
- Chemical peels – Chemical solution applied to the skin that causes the skin to peel off.
- Laser treatments – Multiple applications, including hair removal, skin rejuvenation, pigmentation, and more.
- Micro-needling – The use of very small needles that prick the skin, resulting in the formation of new skin tissue.
- Sclerotherapy and more.
Dermatologists know which procedures to use for each condition. Therefore, they can apply the correct procedures depending on each unique individual.
What is a Dermatologist?
Dermatologists are licenced professionals. Even though some clinics have practitioners that call themselves dermatologists, they do not have the correct accreditation and qualification. Therefore, it is important to visit a registered Cosmetic Center like Noviskin where all of the Dermatologists are registered Professionals. Dermatologists have studied multiple years. They have the required knowledge to perform the correct treatment for your condition. For instance, some of our Specialist Dermatologists like Dr Marianne Duvenage has over 30 years of experience. In addition to practical experience, our dermatologists also remain knowledgeable in the industry. For example, some of our Dermatologists like Dr Petunia Malahlela regularly present seminars and presentations on new and existing Dermatology conditions to create awareness.
