I strive always to live up to my reputation of mastering the full spectrum of dermatology in a kind, warm and thoughtful manner.

Dr Vanessa Lapiner

Specialist Dermatologist

Dr Vanessa Lapiner is a specialist dermatologist with key interests in dermatological surgery, the field of mole mapping and dermo-cosmetology.

A curious mind, analytical aptitude and appreciation of subtle clinical clues make for an expert diagnostician while patients respond to her gentle and unhurried care, focusing always on the patient rather than on the disease. She opened her dermatology practice in the heart of Sea Point in 2011 which quickly became synonymous with achieving superior patient-centric outcomes. A desire to make an all-encompassing approach to skin feel seamless to her patients drove her to add first laser and aesthetic specialists to her practice in 2018 followed by leaders in the world of integrative medicine in 2019. The result is TASH360: a unique total approach to skin health set in the most beautiful and comfortable of environments.

Are Eggs Good For My Skin?

Beyond high-quality protein, an egg contains a wide-variety of essential nutrients and bioactive compounds that can beneficially impact skin health. But when it comes to recommending diets including eggs, often we need to ‘walk on eggshells’ since egg proteins can also potentially promote inflammation.

5 Hidden Places to find Skin Cancers

Skin cancers – especially melanoma – can occur anywhere on your skin. Since skin cancers are the most common cancer of all cancers and we don’t require fancy imaging such as CTs, MRIs or PET scans to pick them up – skin self-checks should become a monthly habit. Did you know that your nails are also areas of skin that can potentially get melanomas? Melanomas do not always occur in sun exposed areas, the sun protected groin area is also at risk.
