About us

Skin skills is the product of two colleagues that recognized the need for a support network in the medical aesthetic industry that provides ongoing free educational resources and post graduate short courses.

The medical aesthetic environment is a unique space in which we see medical doctors and skincare therapists working together in a environment that they might not know how to navigate.

Lize & Rialette created a business that aims to support all professionals working in a medical aesthetic environment so that they are able to have the best and most up to date information available to them on a ongoing basis. This allows them to achieve excellent results on the patient’s skin, in a safe and sustainable way.

We also support the various distribution networks in South Africa so that they are able to provide training in a way that suits the modern era that we work and live in. This allows their distribution partners and stockists to have access to the best training delivered by experts that are passionate about skincare. This takes the pressure off their sales and training teams, as we can offer an unbiased support system to upgrade their training presentations and online training resources. We do this with the utmost respect for their proprietary and sensitive product information.
