After studying medicine in Basel, Dr. Kreyden obtained his primary and continuing surgical education until, right before obtaining his specialist title, changing to the specialist field of dermatology. During his training as a specialist in dermatology at the University Hospital Zurich, he closely studied the (back then) little-known Botulinum toxin as a method of treating excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis). He founded the first Hyperhidrosis consultation in Switzerland, and directed it for many years.

Upon opening the Praxis Methininserhof near Basel, he increasingly began to apply himself with dermatological subareas of dermatologic surgery and aesthetic dermatology, in addition to classic dermatology. Here, Botulinium toxin is used to smooth expression lines, hyaluronic acid is used as a filler to replace volume in static lines, as well as lasers and skin peels. Dr. Kreyden has published umpteen scientific papers in the field of hyperhidrosis and aesthetic dermatology, is a published author and a regular, sought-after speaker at international conventions for aesthetic dermatology.

He is a regular instructor at workshops and training courses in the field of aesthetic dermatology, both nationally and abroad, and is a member or board member of various international associations. In 2008, he founded the Swiss Group of Esthetic Dermatology and Skincare (SGEDS) und has been president of the association ever since. In 2007, he received the «Who-is-Who»-Award for his scientific work in the field of dermatology and aesthetic medicine, and has been listed ever since.

In 2014, Dr. med. Oliver Ph. Kreyden became Presiden of ESCAD, the largest European association for aesthetic dermatology. Under his chairmanship, the association is being profoundly reorganised and modernised.
