Skin laser treatment in dubai : Biological injections tailored to suit individual needs, latest facial fillers and new laser treatments for conditions such as eczema and alopecia have revolutionised skin laser treatment in the region, and in the world. International derma care experts gathered in Dubai to address all afflictions linked to the human skin at Derma Care, Dubai World Dermatology and Laser Conference and Exhibition.
Dr Anwar Al Hammadi, head of dermatology at the Dubai Health Authority, said. “Skin problems are a big concern for every individual. While internal (hidden) body problems tend to be neglected, with skin conditions, people don’t wait as it is your appearance that [you are dealing with].”
In addition to this, Al Hammadi said: “There are also many genetic disorders, which are heightened in the cases of inter-family marriages, where both sides have skin conditions. This results in the child having a much higher risk of developing genetic diseases.”
However, skin specialists feel that the expertise and availability of treatment for skin disorders is of a very advanced quality in the UAE prompting patients from outside the country to come here for consultations. The methods applied in the UAE – diagnostics or therapeutic – are comparable to the best in the world, he said.
Listing some of the new treatments, Dr Al Hammadi said the medical community was especially excited by the new biological injections being used to treat an autoimmune disorder like psoriasis.

: The new biological therapies that treat psoriasis, an autoimmune skin condition which is a genetic/hereditary disease, can completely clear the skin for as long as you continue to take your medication and have semi-regular check-ups. In the past, the success rate for psoriasis treatment was 75 per cent or less.”
He said that by 2018, 10 new biological therapies – which could be tailored to suit individuals according to their gender, age and type of psoriasis – would be available to treat this condition.
Another advancement in the field was for treatment of urticaria (allergic hives). “This condition adversely affects the patient’s quality of life. In the past, we were limited with options of anti-allergic (antihistamines) pills. However, nowadays, there is a safe injection that can be given once a month which helps clear up this condition,” said Dr Al Hammadi.
The derma care research has also yielded positive advances in the treatment of common conditions such as eczema, acne, rosacea and hair problems (alopecia) which are now available here in the UAE. In addition to these treatments, there are also new laser therapies, said Dr Al Hammadi, but he cautioned that it was important for patients to get their condition correctly diagnosed before commencing treatment.
“One of the concerns here is also that it is an ‘open-market. Products and treatments should be evidence-based and not on hearsay,” he said.
