Dr Riana van Gerve has 12 years’ experience in medical aesthetics. She graduated as a general practitioner from the University of Pretoria in 2004 and has been focusing exclusively on facial aesthetics since 2008.
Education, of her patients and herself, is of the utmost importance to her, so she makes time to stay up to date. She regularly attends international conferences and training to improve her knowledge and techniques.
Dr Riana attends the yearly Aesthetic Medicine Congress of South Africa (AMCSA). She has also attended the Cosmedica and Medical Aesthetics congresses, and participated as an assistant in the 11th international course Advances in Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery in Barcelona, Spain. In 2013 she attended the International Aesthetic Medicine Congress, and in 2015, 2017 and 2018 she attended the Aesthetic Medicine World Congress in Monte Carlo.
She completed the Diploma in Aesthetic Medicine at the internationally acknowledged American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine and she has also received MD Codes training by the world-renowned Dr Mauricio de Maio.
Dr van Gerve is a member of the Aesthetic and Anti-aging Medicine Society of South Africa (AAMSSA).
Riana loves to cook, travel, and spend time in nature (wearing sunscreen, of course).
“I strive to achieve natural, beautiful results so that patients will look like they had nothing done. I feel so grateful and blessed to be able to do what I do every day.”
“I try to really understand what motivates a person’s visit and how they see themselves. And how they’d like to see themselves.”
“You will age, but that doesn’t mean you have to wrinkle, crease, sag, and crumple. You can look beautiful at any age by doing what’s in your power with the technological advances available to you.”
“Beauty has no Sell By Date”
