About The Skinsmith

“No gimmicks, no lies, no symptomatic treatment.
We identify the core of the condition and treat it effectively and holistically.”

Forged by a passion to provide authentic, ethical, and effective solutions for patients struggling with skin conditions, The Skinsmith Clinic is an holistic skin treatment centre based in Port Elizabeth.

Headed up by Juanita Mackenzie, The Skinsmith Clinic focuses on identifying and treating the underlying causes of skin conditions including acne scarring, stretch marks, sagging skin, wrinkles, hair loss, and wound repair. Through DNA testing, the Clinic is able to pinpoint the core of an individual’s skin condition, and provide a tailor-made, long-term treatment and maintenance plan.

Juanita holds a Baccalaureus Curationis (BCUR) – a four year degree as a qualified psychiatric, general and community nurse and midwife. Together with her passion to provide effective skin solutions for her patients, Juanita is also an accomplished cyclist and aspiring surfer.

How did The Skinsmith Clinic start?

Frustrated by the overwhelming amount of misinformation and lack of ethical products on the market, Juanita began investigating evidenced-based, holistic skin care solutions. She launched The Skinsmith Clinic to offer personalised treatment options with products that are ethically sourced, and scientifically proven to work.

The Clinic’s core treatment solution is microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) which uses the body’s own natural healing processes to promote tissue repair, collagen production, and overall skin rejuvenation.


While The Skinsmith Clinic’s core treatment is microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), patients also have access to various doctor-administered medical aesthetic treatments including Botox, fillers, threading, and vampire facials. Juanita works closely with the medical staff adjacent to The Skinsmith Clinic’s consulting rooms, and can advise patients on various injectable options that they may benefit from.

“I don’t want people to feel overwhelmed by information. I want them to feel like they are in good hands and their needs and concerns are my number one priority. Every patient is different, and everyone’s skin is different. That is why I provide tailor-made solutions. There is no ‘one-plan-fits-all’. BUT there is a bespoke plan for you… that works!”
