In addition, a number of live demonstrations and workshops present all attendees a unique opportunity to learn about the latest in their field of expertise.
While speaking on the occasion, Dr. Hassan Galadari, Conference Chairman, Emirates Derma said, “The 3rd edition of Emirates Derma conference and exhibition is our noble attempt to forge new links, seek promising partnerships and fruitful collaborations within the field of dermatology and this annual dermatology gathering in Abu Dhabi is a perfect platform for us to achieve our goals. With rapid advances taking place in laser, cosmetic dermatology, plastic surgery, facial aesthetics and anti-aging and key breakthroughs in technology empowering dermatology experts like never before, we believe Emirates Derma with its multifaceted conference program and the Emirates Injection Boot Camp – a dedicated scientific gathering for injection specialists, ideally serves the clinical concerns and evidence based needs of the dermatology industry. Additionally, we are immensely delighted to witness the participation of world-renowned skincare experts, surgeons and distinguished luminaries from across the Middle East and abroad, who will offer their deep insights on the most critical issues facing skincare practitioners in the coming 3 days.”
Commenting on the occasion, Eng. Anas Al Madani, Executive Chairman of Emirates Derma said, “Today, the field of dermatology has undergone significant changes, mainly driven by the advent of new technologies. With a new stream of rapid advances in Artificial Intelligence, skincare practitioners are able to easily access advanced imaging technologies which are enabling improved and efficient clinical decisions. Moreover, while digital technology is allowing dermatologists to treat and diagnose skin disease more effectively, smart algorithms are increasingly being used to diagnose skin cancer within minutes. With the embrace of future technologies, dermatology practices are experiencing fundamental changes and they are supporting doctors to serve patients better and improving patient doctor relationships.”
He added, “With this in mind, we believe Abu Dhabi is a perfect venue to host the 3rd edition of Emirates Derma, as the capital city is witnessing rapid growth in the field of medicine and with further investments in medical technologies and infrastructure planned in the emirate, Abu Dhabi is on track towards becoming a leading healthcare destination. Emirates Derma 2019 features the highly specialized Emirates Injection Boot Camp, which is being held in collaboration with the Jeddah Injection Boot Camp for the second consecutive year and marks the continuation of the joint collaboration between that United Arab Emirates and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in the field of medical education. Moreover, we are delighted to witness a 10 percent increase in exhibition space for this edition, which is offering top industry players in the skincare market an outstanding platform to showcase their services, engage and focus on the needs of the local dermatology market.”
On the sidelines of the Emirates Injection Boot Camp, highly specialized sessions were held on Upper Face, Mid Face and Lower Face, where top skin care experts focused on their attention on
Anatomy, Beauty Standards and Rejuvenation which were followed by live demonstrations. In another session under Neurotoxins, experts offered their insights on Neurotoxins, Indications and Long Duration of Effect for AbobotulinumtoxinA which were again followed by live demonstrations.
On his part, Dr. Dalvi Humzah, MD, United Kingdom said, “The discussions at the Emirates Injection Boot camp bring together expert knowledge and practical expertise that will enable practitioners to improve and extend their practical treatments for their patients in clinic. In my experience as a practicing plastic surgeon, I believe plastic surgery is refining the “traditional” surgical approaches and we are developing procedures to involve new technologies in stem cells and regenerative medicine. We are also developing new less invasive procedures that use new technologies such as Radiofrequency and Lasers to allow patients to have procedures with less downtime.”
While speaking about how injectors are helpful in anti-aging, Dr. Dalvi Humzah stated, “Injectors are able to provide minimally invasive procedures to help slow down ageing processes. Skin regenerative and bio-remodeling agents (Profhilo) provide a novel product in skin rejuvenation.”
Running parallel to the conference, the exhibition is featuring 12 leading skincare brands related to skincare and anti-aging, laser supplies, surgical instruments, hair treatment equipment, laboratory services, photographic equipment and imaging services and medical lighting equipment, giving them a unique opportunity to showcase their products and collaborate with top skin surgeons, dermatologists and experts in order to meet their clinical expectations.
In addition, attending delegates get a chance to earn 18 CME credit points from UAE University and interact with the top minds in dermatology from the UAE and across the globe.
