Dr Chrisna Andersen

MBChB (Stell)

Dr Chrisna Andersen completed her MBChB degree at Stellenbosch University, after which she completed her community service at Tygerberg and Paarl Hospital.

Between 2005 and 2013, she trained HIV clinics and nurses in the Boland area. After realising her passion for helping those with HIV/AIDS, she joined ANOVA Health, an NGO. Also, from 2005, she worked part-time as a sub-investigator for research studies in Mbekweni. This included HIV, ARVs, TB, wound studies, and now also Autism.

Dr Chrisna joined Skin Renewal in 2018 and is proud to be part of its family. She loves to build relationships with her patients and witness them achieve their desired results.

An avid reader and hands-on mom of three, Dr Chrisna also loves nature, and her Paarl home of 18 years is decorated with green plants throughout. It is evident that Dr Chrisna has a kind heart and a big house as she shares it with many fur friends, including two miniature schnauzers, a Maine coon cat as well as a dwarf rabbit, a budgie, a teddy bear, hamster and a baby lamb.

Dr Chrisna is eager to continue learning and keeps abreast of trends and best practices by regularly attending non-surgical anti-ageing congresses and workshops. She is a member of AAMSA (The Aesthetic & Anti-Ageing Medicine Society of South Africa) and attends the monthly Skin Renewal doctor meetings in addition to the continuous in-house training.

A doctor who has called Paarl home for her adult life, Dr Chrisna, consults from the Skin Renewal Paarl and Willowbridge clinics in the Western Cape.
