Renowned dermatologist and anti-aging expert, Dr. med. Stefan Duve is the brain behind the award-winning DOCTOR DUVE Medical Skin Care line developed in Germany. South Africa was the latest country to be added to this innovative brand’s international network through a carefully selected group of top skincare clinics.
DOCTOR DUVE has won a number of international beauty awards, including the esteemed 2012 Harpers Bazaar Beauty Award, and made waves internationally by showing exceptional innovation through his advanced anti-aging research.
Dr. Duve spent numerous years developing the Medical Skin Care line; the result is an innovative anti-aging solution that creates an intelligent symbiosis of dermatology and cosmetics with a high degree of effectiveness and tolerance. His aim was to create skincare products that not only treat the skin but also restore and perfect its functions.
The DOCTOR DUVE Medical Skin Care Line caters to both women and men who are seeking a highly effective anti-aging solution for the face and body. What makes the DOCTOR DUVE Medical Skin Care exceptionally unique is that it contains a basic ingredient that has rarely been used in cosmetic ranges to date, Growth Factors. Growth Factors are biotechnological, plant-based syntheses of the natural Growth Factors that are only produced in the body up until adulthood. Growth Factors simulate this effect, thus activating the skin’s own anti-aging system and boosting collagen production, revitalizing cells, slowing down skin aging and firming the connective tissue.
The products in the innovative DOCTOR DUVE Medical Skin Care line reflect the latest advances in anti-aging research. The skincare line also provides effective solutions to specific skin problems and regenerates stressed and mature skin, calms sensitive skin and restores the balance to skin prone to blemishes and redness. As stated by Dr. med. Stefan Duve, anti-wrinkle injections and laser treatments can be beneficial; however the best results can only be achieved if patients receive the necessary cosmetic treatments with suitable skincare products both before and after surgery.
The DOCTOR DUVE line of products are available in South Africa through Skin Renewal’s 16 clinics nationwide, situated in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Sandton, Stellenbosch, Pretoria and Centurion.
