Skin Care Advice and Customer Relations
Having joined Dr Alek’s practice and SkinMiles, I now specialise specifically in Skin Care Advice with multiple skin brands; Laser and IPL treatments using Syneron; Chemical Peels using Neostrata , Skin Ceuticals , Lamelle and Dermaquest; and my absolute passion, working with Dermapen MD. I have attended advanced workshops in Dermapen with Dr Andrew Christie, which changed how I work with the treatment in order to effect positive changes in the skin, with regards to Collagen Induction for Anti-ageing and Scar revision, Acne, Pigmentation and Rosacea, to name but a few. I strongly believe that every skin can benefit from a properly recommended skin care regime, irrespective of age, colour or condition.
Skin Care Advice and Customer Relations
I have completed my Somatologist Diploma at Isa Carstens Academy in Pretoria. I am well versed in the study of the human body as a branch of anthropology, including specializations of material substances, physics, chemistry, biology and botany. After completing my diploma, I worked on cruise ships for two year where I was appointed as assistant spa manager. Having worked in spa-based environments and medical-based practices, alongside dermatologists, plastic surgeons and aesthetic doctors, it aided in the development of my personal set of well-rounded Somatological and people skills. As a highly qualified skin aesthetician, I can read the skin’s past, treat the skin’s present and guide you to a healthy skin future. The experience I have gained over the last years in the field has given me a vast knowledge in the industry. Having expertise of over 12 product houses, trained on numerous machines and specialized treatments, it allows me to think outside the box. My moto is “Healthy Skin is Always In”.
