Dr Nicolina Bardou
Chief Medical Officer at Ingress Healthcare | Fellow at Cosmetic Dermatology Centre
Dr Bardou is completing a two-year fellowship in Aesthetic Medicine and Dermatology at CDC. She is being personally mentored by Dr Heydenrych and Dr Smit. In addition to her medical degree from the University of Cape Town (UCT), she holds a BSc (Hons) in Psychology and MSc (Med) in Neuroscience from UCT. In 2010, she was a recipient of a Commonwealth Scholarship to the University of Oxford, where she completed an MSc in Environmental Change and Management with a focus on public health.
She grew up between Cape Town and Boston, where her father was a professor at both UCT and Harvard University. Being surrounded by academics and researchers instilled in her a passion for research and evidence-based clinical practice. Her international upbringing has instilled a love of travel, which she shares with her Australian husband and their young son. Her passion for the aesthetic extends to the canvas and sketchpad, and she is happiest with a paint brush or drawing pencil in her hand.
