DUBAI, March 18, 2019

Over 290 world renowned skin care experts will offer their key insights on the most crucial skin care during 272 scientific sessions at the Dubai World Dermatology and Laser Conference and Exhibition – Dubai Derma that opened today (March 18).

The 19th edition of the largest scientific skincare gathering in Mena and the Indian Subcontinent was inaugurated by Sheikh Hasher bin Maktoum Al Maktoum, Director General of Dubai Department at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Center to run until March 20.

The conference includes 79 hands-on workshops to enhance the clinical expertise of dermatology professionals and specialists while 77 poster display presentations and 112 case studies are designed to encourage students and professionals to pursue research in dermatology.

Dr Ibrahim Galadari, chairman of the Dubai Derma Conference and Professor of Dermatology at the UAE University said: “This year Dubai Derma features great discoveries in therapeutics for very common skin conditions such as vitiligo, atopic dermatitis and alopecia areata, which recently made headlines in Dubai. These skincare concerns will be highlighted tremendously with exclusive information that was announced at the annual AAD meeting in Washington DC 2 weeks ago.”

He added: “The latest edition of Dubai Derma is even more special as we have the presence of many international and well recognized dermatology societies involved in various scientific sessions. As Dubai is home to more than 200 different nationalities, it is extremely important for local and regional doctors to raise awareness about maladies that may afflict those coming from different parts of the world. The representation from the Americas, Europe, Asia and Africa in Dubai Derma is key to disseminating this crucial knowledge and information across the globe.”

Dr Abdul Salam Al Madani, executive chairman, Dubai Derma, said: “In its current edition, Dubai Derma Conference and Exhibition brings together top skincare specialists, leading dermatology experts, surgeons and industry leaders to exchange knowledge on the latest advances in treating various types of skin diseases and disorders.

“This year, we witnessed a remarkable increase in the size of the exhibition which occupies an overall space of 20,000 square meters and attracts 594 leading skin care brands and companies showcasing their latest products and services. This clearly reflects the confidence reposed by the dermatology industry in Dubai Derma and I hope all attendees will take best advantage of this event.”

Running parallel to the conference, the Dubai Derma exhibition featured the presence of leading skincare brands, technology firms and companies from the region and the world, offering visitors and participants a great opportunity to learn about the latest advances in skin treatment while also giving exhibitors a chance to engage and network with top notch experts in skin health.
