I also thank His Highness for his endless efforts and contributions put forward to improve both medical and healthcare services. The evident attention of senior Dubai officials in the health sector, and the organizing of periodic conferences and seminars, are making Dubai stand out as a global scientific edifice. The biggest proof of that is the successful organization of conferences and exhibitions, such as Dubai Derma which became a global focal point where the most prominent doctors and distinguished specialists in the field of skin care and laser meet to discuss and share their knowledge and expertise."

Dr. Abdul Wahab Al Fouzan went on saying: "Looking at the scientific program of the Dubai Derma conference, one would find a lot of scientific papers and medical researches, all addressing the new discoveries in the field of laser treatment, especially skin surgery and the treatment of psoriasis and cancerous tumors, in addition to the treatment of hair loss, alopecia, skin and genetic diseases. The scientific activities of the conference also include a large number of workshops for laser applications and new ideas on how to deal with the skin changes that occur as a result of aging."

The 15th edition of Dubai DermaConference and Exhibition continued its second day with the participation of local and international exhibiting companies that are displaying their latest equipment and products used in dermatology, plastic surgeries and laser treatments.

Dr. Hassan Galadari, Head of Scientific Committee of Dubai Derma Conference & Exhibition commented on the program this year by saying: "The beauty of the program is that the scientific committee takes into account what our reviewers and those who evaluate us seriously. This year, we have put together a pre-conference cosmetic course instead of the capped workshops we had in the previous year. We wanted to bring in as many professionals as possible from different parts of the world to discuss that specific growing field. In addition, we see that dermatopathology sessions have also made a strong presence in the main program too."

"In addition to that, lasers have always been the "in" thing. Those machines get updated more than your iPhone and it is important to realize what is out there and what actually works. There is a whole session on the lasers, their recent advances and their limitations given both to the pre conference course and main program." Added Dr. Galadari
