Anti-aging medicine is a lucrative, ever-evolving industry with over USD 12 billion spent annually on this sector. Medical professionals are working tirelessly to refine their skills using the latest scientific and technological advances to prevent, slow or reverse the effects of aging. International and regional suppliers of anti-aging technology are competing for customers and by exhibiting at the region’s premier anti-aging event - International Congress in Aesthetic, Anti-Aging Medicine & Medical Spa Middle East (ICAAM) - they have a great platform to showcase the latest advances in this field.
More than 350 industry professionals and 28 exhibiting companies have met at day one of ICAAM held at the Al Bustan Rotana Hotel, Dubai. The exhibition continues on 20 and 21 November 2009.
Running along side the exhibition is a scientific congress dedicated to all aspects of the field. Under the scientific supervision of WOSAAM (World Society of Anti-Aging Medicine), the largest scientific anti-aging society with more than 130 affiliated associations worldwide, IIR Middle East Life Sciences Division, organiser of Arab Health, working with EuroMediCom - the leading organiser of Anti-Aging and Aesthetics events - has brought together over 80 international speakers to provide an innovative and comprehensive overview of the latest research developments in anti-aging medicine.
CosmeSurge, a cosmetic surgery, dermatology, laser and dentistry centre with a strong presence in North America and the Middle East is at ICAAM Middle East to recruit doctors and anti-aging experts to work at their new anti-aging clinics.
“With new centres shortly opening in Jeddah, Riyadh, New Delhi and Vienna we are constantly on the look out for talented doctors to join the CosmeSurge team,” said Waleed Taleb, marketing manager for CosmeSurge. “ICAAM Middle East is a perfect platform for networking and getting our brand recognised by our target market.”
Also exhibiting at ICAAM Middle East is Medica, a medical supply company based in Dubai. Supplying anti-aging, slimming and skin-care technologies to a host of hospitals, spas and clinics in the region, Medica have chosen ICAAM Middle East to launch the latest product from Swedish-based Restylane.
Rene Nehme, GCC Export Manager for Medica explains: “The new Restylane Perlane is a derma filler treatment that has an inbuilt mechanism for pain relief. The active ingredient in this product for pain relief is lidocaine which causes a mild anaesthetic effect which can be administered directly from the syringe. With most people uncomfortable with needles and surgical procedures, this will no-doubt have a calming effect on our patients.”
The main objective of ICAAM Middle East is to ensure that all aspects of anti-aging, such as aesthetic dermatology and surgery, preventive and well-being medicine can combine their respective knowledge to provide the best follow up and treatments for optimal “global anti-aging management” of the patient.
