The event will host global prominent speakers from all over the world, and will serve as a golden opportunity to meet in Dubai, the Jewel of the UAE.”
Under the theme ‘Shaping the Future of Dermatology and Aesthetics,’ the event will provide a platform for industry players and professionals from across the world.
Several lectures and workshops will address the latest developments in the field of dermatology, medical and aesthetics aspects, therapeutics and drugs, as well as discuss the most important issues related to the sector, including the challenges it faces and ways to overcome them.
Dr. Hassan Galadari, Head of the Scientific Committee for Dubai Derma, said:
"This year's Dubai Derma is a celebration of the field, the people working in it and those training to be future dermatologists. The meeting promises an event that is equally educational and interactive as it is engaging and relevant. If you love dermatology and have that passion for it, you will need to attend."
Dubai Derma 2023 also comprises four-days of pre-conferences and workshops that include specialised courses before the initial event, from February 26th to March 1st, which deal with the latest scientific developments in the treatment of serious and cosmetic skin diseases. Course topics include Psoriasis, Pediatric Dermatology, Difficult Clinical Dermatology Cases, Diseases Affecting the Face Skin and How to Reach a Proper Diagnosis, A Complete Hair Course, and so many more that cover specialized areas on the body.
The Arab Academy of Dermatology and Aesthetics (AADA), the largest, most influential, and representative dermatology group in the Arab region, will also host an AADA Fellowship Course on Dermatology, Aesthetics & Laser.
The course programme will begin a day before Dubai Derma as a pre-course and continue to run throughout the event, and cover specialised scientific procedures to enhance the skills and techniques through enhanced courses.
The global dermatological market size is valued at more than USD 20 billion and is projected to reach nearly USD 60 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 11.5 percent from 2021 to 2030.
The demand for specialised dermatology devices is increasing due to the high demand for early diagnosis of diseases and skin conditions.
