Cutting-Edge Dermatological Procedures Required to Treat Middle Eastern Skin Damaged by Climate Conditions

, UAE:  Middle Eastern and Arab skin is known to be darker in pigmentation, which makes it more susceptible to skin color changes after undergoing light-based dermatological procedures. The warmer climate in the Middle East automatically creates the need for constant hydration and sun protection. Therefore, as a result of direct sun exposure and less water intake, individuals may suffer from darker skin patches, skin damage, wrinkles and other dermatological disturbances caused by the surrounding environment.

Dr. Ashraf Badawi, Associate Professor of Dermatology, Laser Institute, Cairo University, Egypt will discuss “Skin Illuminating Treatments for ” and, specifically what differentiates Arabic skin from other skin types and how to deal with particular issues of Arabic skin, at the 5th International Congress in Aesthetic, Anti-Aging Medicine & Medical Spa ( Middle East), which takes place 23-24 November 2012 at the Habtoor Grand Resort & Spa in Dubai, UAE.

Hirsutism is the growth of excessive hair in unusual areas in women, associated with male hair growth patterns such as on the face, chest and back. These attributes are found in women who have polycystic ovarian syndrome which is hereditary, congenital adrenal hyperplasia or are of Middle Eastern and South Asian ancestry. Hypertricosis on the other hand is also characterized by excessive hair growth on men and women and its ability to be passed down genetically, however it is more aggressive in nature and is also referred to as Ambras Syndrome.

The most common dermatological treatments performed on Middle Eastern and Arab patients is chemical peels, laser assisted hair reduction, laser rejuvenation for acne scars and microdermabrasion.

Additionally it is very important that patients select dermatologists or professional skin practitioners that are qualified with an excellent track record to avoid malpractice and unwanted consequences.
