The dynamic and growing healthcare sector in the UAE requires highly skilled and experienced dermatologists who have their completed consultant training (CCT). Those with advanced fellowships post-specialisation are especially sought after to bring new skills and techniques to the region. Subspecialties in which dermatologists in the UAE work include dermatopathology, immunodermatology, paediatric dermatology, micrographic dermatological surgery and cosmetic dermatology. Dermatologists may work in multi-specialty hospitals, medical centres or specialised clinics.
The demand for cosmetic dermatology is growing in Dubai and the wider UAE. Dubai is home to more than 400 clinics focused on beauty and aesthetics. In-demand treatments provided by cosmetic dermatologists include laser skin resurfacing, microneedling, chemical peels, PRP therapy and soft fillers. Clinics are equipped with the latest technologies, such as electrosurgery and laser equipment, enabling state-of-the-art treatment.
As well as providing healthcare for citizens and residents, the UAE is fast becoming one of the top global destinations for international patients seeking high quality, accessible medical care, with dermatology one of the most popular specialties. The medical tourism sector is well supported and regulated by the government. The Dubai Health Experience (DXH) www.dxh.ae, founded by the Dubai Health Authority (DHA), brings together a consortium of recognised, quality-assured healthcare providers and facilitators to optimise the medical tourism experience.
Dermatologists working in the UAE are well supported in their continuing professional development (CPD).

It provides an exceptional platform to learn about the latest scientific information and innovations in the field of dermatology, skincare and lasers.
