Dr. Abdul Wahab Fawzan, President of Kuwait Society of Dermatologists, and president of the Arab Scientific council of Derma. and Vener from Kuwait said â€œMost Gulf countries has a dry atmosphere and high temperatures, so residents of this area should increase their skin hydration and protection. Dubai is a humid city there fore people should make sure they donâ€™t get infected by fungal infections caused by humidity which cause damage to the skin.â€
He continued â€œI believe that this meeting is an opportunity for all doctors attending Dubai Derma to learn about new approaches in skin care as well as laser and cosmetics surgery, and I am looking forward to be at this very impressive congress every year.â€
Most of the beauty and cosmetics products are imported from foreign countries to the gulf, as factories in the gulf produce only medicines. The value of this industry is billions of dollars especially after the awareness campaigns that international dermatology platforms such as Dubai Derma spread among people.
Dubai Derma 2010 is an excellent opportunity for dermatologists, Dermatology resident physicians and medical students to benefit from the workshops; as they will provide an update on the latest advances and practices in Dermatology, Laser treatments, anti â€“ aging, skin and hair care and other dermatological therapies.
