Dermatologists Sans Borders started as a closed and curated facebook group in 2006. Now @DermSB is one of the largest curated and strictly moderated online groups of skin care professionals. When most similar social media groups ignore patient privacy rights by posting clinical images, often without consent, we stand apart as a responsible group of skincare professionals with strict rules and code of conduct enforced by a group of dermatologists from different parts of the world. @DermSB is now present on various social media channels such as Facebook, Linkedin and Google Plus.[Links on your left top corner] This is the peer-reviewed blog associated with DermSB.

Our group of contributors review products, devices and technologies. We also allow sponsored posts and customer surveys. All posts on this blog will be automatically shared with our facebook group comprising 10,000 members, with comment sync. Please contact us if you want your product/device reviewed or if you want to conduct a survey exclusively on skin care professionals.

Please support us by joining Dermatologists Sans Borders on facebook.
