Dermwire's Inside Scoop on Hottest Expected AAD2016 Launches


The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD)’s annual meeting is the place for skin care companies looking to launch the latest – and hopefully greatest  --- innovations or iterations in skin care products and technologies.

And the 2016 AAD meeting – slated to take place March 4-6, 2016 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C, will prove no exception.
