GPSI Dermatology and Aesthetic Medicine, Dip Prac Derm (Cardiff), MBBCh (Pret), BSc (UNISA)
Dr Genevieve Marks has a special interest and dedication to all things aesthetic and dermatological.
Beginning her career in general medicine, she rapidly developed a keen interest in what was then an almost unknown field of medicine, the medical treatment of ageing and enhancement of the human form. She was part of the very first group of doctors to attend local Congress in Aesthetic Medicine in 2006. Today she is a regular speaker at such forums. Around this time she also wrote, developed and launched her own metabolic balancing program, which is a hugely successful adjunct to the body sculpting and contouring treatments she offers.
Since then she has become well known for her involvement as a trainer, lecturer and consultant for several key dermatological and aesthetic companies including Allergan, Sinclair and Galderma. She is a recognised expert in the use of neurotoxin, injectable tissue fillers and non-surgical face-lifting techniques with threads. Her scope of practice extends to lasers, photodynamic therapy and novel treatments such as PRP, colloquially known as ‘Vampire Lifting’.
Expanding her skill set to encompass a widening array of treatment options, led her to seek out further education in Wales in the field of dermatology. She is one of a handful of doctors in Africa who hold this qualification, which allows her to treat a variety of common dermatological conditions such as acne, eczema and psoriasis. Dermoscopy for mole evaluation is one of her key interests.
Her practice in Waterkloof Ridge Pretoria is mostly where she spends her time, bringing her appreciation for the Aesthetic to life in her patients.
