Pioneering women

reconstructive surgery

5 billion people worldwide lack access to safe, timely surgical care.

For people in developing countries who suffer from burn injuries or congenital conditions, a change in physicality can change their lives— disabling them to fully participate in crucial daily activities, like providing for their families.

As a medical skincare brand, SkinCeuticals is committed to furthering the field of aesthetic medicine with real, evidence-based science. Through our experience working with doctors, we’ve learned that aesthetics has the potential to change much more than just aesthetic appearance. Equality of medical training is essential to bridging this gap.

Today, there are only 3 female surgeons for every 1 million people in low income countries, often due to a lack of equal access to significant technical training or obstacles to gaining acceptance in their field.

SkinCeuticals has partnered with – a global not-for-profit dedicated to empowering local doctors and increasing access to reconstructive surgical care in developing countries – to provide technical training, leadership development, and mentor support to the first generation of local women reconstructive surgeons in these underserved nations.

Together we hope to change the landscape for women surgeons worldwide, enabling them to advance their careers and transform the lives of those in need of life-changing surgical care.



When women do better, the world does better.

Join us in making a difference – in advancing female reconstructive surgeons in underserved parts of the world that work to transform the lives of those in need of life-changing surgery.
