SkinHappy ® is the world’s first online medical experience focused on treating both the visible damage of a variety of skin conditions and the accompanying emotional fallout that can profoundly impact self-esteem and limit patients’ social lives and work opportunities.
Dr. Julie Kenner, MD, PhD, Board Certified Dermatologist, and founder chose the name “SkinHappy” because it conveys her commitment to restoring both the physical reality of beautiful skin and the inner peace that gives her patients the ability to face the world with confidence.
Dr. Kenner’s compassion for helping others was molded by years of living in dozens of culturally and economically diverse countries. From a young age, she observed medical challenges in the midst of imperfect circumstances — from her twin sisters’ emergency birth in West Africa, to her own near-fatal appendicitis as a child in Turkey. As an adult, Dr. Kenner carried out medical missions and research in Kenya, Uganda, Peru, Brazil, Mongolia and the Soloman islands as a physician and scientist.
