Speaker Bio

Dr. Barbara Sturm is a globally renowned German doctor, aesthetics expert, and anti-inflammatory pioneer with a background in orthopedic research. Beginning her medical career in orthopedics, she worked with a team that developed cutting-edge treatments for inflammatory conditions like osteoarthritis, using the body’s own proteins and healing factors to stop the inflammatory process
and help heal joint tissue.
In 2002, Dr. Sturm translated the science from her clinical research and orthopedic practice into the field of aesthetics. She started by injecting hyaluronic acid and Botox, which provided great results, but she wanted to explore mixing these compounds with the body’s own anti-inflammatory healing factors, as they did in orthopedic medicine, to provide additional anti-aging results. In 2002, she created her MCX treatment, a Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) facial now recognized by many as the Blood Facial, followed by her famous MC1 cream, a bespoke, plasma-based moisturizer. Dr. Sturm’s patients required an entire, science-based and effective skincare regimen, and seeing no such products available on the market, she went into the lab and created her own — Dr. Barbara Sturm Molecular Cosmetics.
Today, Dr. Sturm has seven Dr. Barbara Sturm Spa & Boutiques worldwide, which are home to her high-performance treatments and serve as education hubs for her patients. Her Molecular Cosmetics collection is built on 25 years of scientific research with over 300 products and more than 5,000 carefully curated skincare routines that have gained global recognition and a cult following. All Dr. Barbara Sturm products are free of synthetic fragrances, harsh preservatives and parabens, are cruelty-free, and suitable for all skin types and concerns.
Dr. Sturm studied medicine and sports at the Heinrich Heine University in Düsseldorf.
