Internationally renowned dermatologist and anti-aging expert
Dr. Stefan Duve is one of the most experienced dermatologists and anti-aging specialists in the world. After studying human medicine, he worked, among other things, with cancer patients in the radiation department of the Großhadern Clinic in Munich - an experience that shaped him for his later everyday practice, as did his training in the famous Clinic for Anesthesia at the Großhadern Clinic. He completed his further training as a specialist in dermatology and allergology in Davos, Switzerland, at New York University and at the Dermatology Clinic of the Technical University of Munich.
In 1995, Dr. Duve founded a practice in Munich with two colleagues. Today, the Skin and Laser Center at the Opera House specializes in aesthetic medicine, body contouring, plastic surgery, laser treatments, medical cosmetics and hair therapy and transplantation, in addition to classical dermatology. The practice enjoys a first-class reputation not only in Germany, but among patients from all over the world who trust Dr. Duve and his colleagues.
To keep abreast of the latest research, Dr. Duve attends national and international congresses every year and frequently speaks there. He regularly discovers new, pioneering treatment methods there, which he is often the first to introduce in Germany.
Dr. Duve publishes in specialist media and is a sought-after beauty expert for newspapers, magazines, TV and digital media. Together with the presenter Nina Ruge, he wrote the book "Das Geheimnis gesunder und schöner Haut" ("The Secret of Healthy and Beautiful Skin"), and with his colleague, the pediatric dermatologist Dr. Antje Söller, he published "Das Kinderhautbuch" ("The Children's Skin Book"), the first reference work on skin changes in babies, children and adolescents - a matter close to the heart of Dr. Duve, who himself suffered from severe eczema as a child.
However, Dr. Duve's passionate commitment is above all to the patients who visit him in his practice in the center of Munich with their problems, concerns and questions. For this reason, Focus magazine has ranked him among Germany's top physicians in the fields of laser and Botox and filler treatments every year since 2013.
Dr. Stefan Duve, who was born in Cologne, lives in Munich with his husband. Whenever they find the time, they go traveling, and their favorite destinations include Brazil and Thailand.
