The Australasian Society of Cosmetic Dermatologists (ASCD) is a business unit providing education and training activities under an Skin Health Institute Inc (SHI), with individual affiliation (members are known as Affiliates) open to all Australian and New Zealand dermatologists and dermatology trainees.

The ASCD activities are supported by:

The ASCD was established in 2013. In 2019, the New Zealand Society of Dermatologists formed the NZ chapter of the ASCD, and contribute a member to the Advisory Committee.
