Dr Kesiree Naidoo is a Specialist Dermatologist in Cape Town. She has been in private practice since 2008 at The Vincent Pallotti Hospital in Pinelands. 

She completed her medical degree at The Nelson R Mandela School of Medicine at the University of Kwazulu-Natal. Dr Naidoo worked in hospitals in England and Canada before specialising in Dermatology at the University of Stellenbosch.

Dr Naidoo has a special interest in the treatment of acne, eczema, psoriasis, skin cancers and mole mapping.

Dr Naidoo stays updated by attending local and international congresses and has completed numerous workshops and courses since specialising. 

Wanting to take her Dermatology practice to the next level, Kesiree then founded Skinsmart, her online specialist skincare site, where clients and patients can purchase dermatologist strength, high-end skincare across premium brands, delivered anywhere in South Africa. With Skinsmart being the only fully female-run online skincare store, Dr Kesiree is pioneering the way for women in online dermatology.
