We are proud to deliver professional, patient-focused care aiming to treat each client the way we would like our own family to be treated. Dr Johann van der Vyver is our Medical Director, and works in a team with our nurse injector, skin therapists, laser technicians and qualified, caring support staff to diagnose and assess skin conditions. Dr Van der Vyver oversees the clinical quality and safety of all our procedures. Our team is not only well trained & certified, but also personable & attentive. We provide a welcoming environment where you can feel comfortable.
Our doctor offers advice, diagnostic services and treatment plans for many common and more serious skin issues. Because he is also an experienced Family Physician, he has a wealth of knowledge that allows him to recognize when skin problems may be related to other health issues, such as gastro-intestinal difficulties, which often present as resistant, chronic recurring skin issues like rashes, breakouts or allergies. We provide advice, education, counselling and screening to assist with persistent skin issues. We seek teledermatology consultations with other dermatology specialists to provide our clients with the most thorough assessment and treatment plan possible.
Treatment options include bio-identical skincare, laser treatments, non-invasive cosmetic procedures, and surgical treatments when necessary.
DermaNuva’s services include patient consultations and referrals from other physicians. Your initial skin consultation is covered by Alberta Health Care, however most office procedures are not covered. Procedures with a medical diagnosis are often covered by extended health benefit plans.
