About Us: DERMASCOPE Magazine

Since its launch in 1975, DERMASCOPE Magazine’s purpose has been to empower the aesthetics industry with innovative information, unbranded education, and unprecedented platforms of continuing education. America’s first and most trusted professional skin care trade publication, “The authority on professional skin care” examines various educational topics such as chemical exfoliation, hyperpigmentation, acne, hair removal, trends, marketing, continuing education, and more.  Almost 90% of the magazine’s readers are aestheticians or spa owners who utilize the magazine as a reference tool for their businesses.

In addition to the monthly “Publisher’s Note” authored by second-generation publisher Amanda Strunk Miller, articles are written by licensed aestheticians, medical doctors, injectors, chemists, naturopaths, and other skin care professionals. Mainstay sections like “Game Changers,” "Fact or Fiction,” and “Put It Into Practice” appear monthly and tackle the skin care industry’s trending topics and popular ingredients.

Other prevalent resources are found at DERMASCOPE.com and bring exclusive webinars, events, and community blogs to the forefront of the skin care industry. In June 2020, an interactive “Ask the Experts” online forum launched where readers can now connect with skin care, wellness, beauty, hair removal, business, and body care experts. Also on the website are exclusive videos, articles, collaborative communities, product guides, and more. And in January 2021, DERMASCOPE debuted its first professional podcast, "The Aesthetic Report," where host Michelle D'Allaird-Brenner interviews the industry's brightest minds and offers listeners practical advice for immediate implementation in their businesses. Professionals can listen wherever they get their podcasts.

DERMASCOPE publishes 14 issues annually for readers in North America, South America, Europe, and Asia. Its weekly electronic newsletter is delivered to more than 50,000 subscribers and includes exclusives, industry trends, and spa humor.
