UAE. Reversing the signs and symptoms of ageing is now a reality of modern medical technology driven by 450 million baby boomers worldwide.

Driven by the advancements made in reversing the natural process of ageing, November’s Dubai Congress on Anti-Ageing & Aesthetic Medicine (DCAAAM) – in association with the American Academy of Anti-Ageing Medicine (A4M) and organisers Tarsus – will bring together a global network of scientists and physicians to address the needs of 450 million baby boomers worldwide seeking to retain their youth and maintain health.

The American Academy of Anti-Ageing Medicine has a membership of more than 20,000 physicians and scientists from 90 countries, and has pioneered the establishment of anti-aging medicine as a recognised medical speciality.  As well as managing 13 anti-ageing events worldwide, Tarsus owns the internationally-renowned Dubai Air Show.

The premiere Dubai Congress will join an already established network of anti-aging events including Las Vegas, Singapore, Tokyo, Germany, China and Mumbai.

With Dubai’s burgeoning healthcare market projected to rise from US$3.2 billion in 2005 to US$11.9 billion in 2015, anti-ageing medicine will be at the forefront of the services offered by medical practices and clinics throughout the region.

Matt Thompson, Project Director, Tarsus, said: “In 2007, anti-ageing was worth US$88.9 billion worldwide and is one of the biggest market opportunities today. It shows a phenomenal average annual growth rate of 9.5% and is due to rise to US$150 billion by 2013.

“DCAAAM will be an exceptional event for healthcare professionals to learn more about the latest innovations and treatment solutions to prevent and even reverse the signs of ageing and degeneration.”

Anti-aging medicine is a serious medical specialty founded on the application of advanced scientific and medical technologies for the early detection, prevention, treatment and reversal of age-related dysfunction, disorders and diseases.

The Dubai congress will bring together more than 70 renowned international speakers who will present the latest scientific research on a wide range of anti-ageing topics. These will include: cosmetic, laser and plastic surgery; aesthetic procedures; bio-identical hormone replacement therapy; medical weight loss and nutrition; mesotherapy and facial rejuvenation; and stem cell therapies and treatment.

A comprehensive exhibition will be held alongside the conference devoted to showcasing the latest industry-related products, services and treatments.

The Arabian Academy of Anti-Ageing Medicine (Arabian A4M) was recently formed under the A4M umbrella to bring anti-aging medicine to the Arab world.

Its Chairman Dr Ali Mohamed is a pioneer in the fields of pain and age management. He said: “The goal of anti-aging medicine is not merely to prolong the total years of an individual’s life, but to ensure an improved quality. The conference will highlight all aspects of this.

“The use of nutrition, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy and advanced technologies including stem-cell research, nanotechnology and gene therapy have been proven to assist and even prevent serious diseases such as arthritis, Alzheimer’s, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.”

The Dubai Congress on Anti-Ageing and Aesthetic Medicine will be held at the Dubai International Exhibition Centre from 7-9 November.
