ALLURE ADLC's History
When he was just a student in school, Khalil Al Arayedh witnessed a relative suffer terribly from a skin condition for which
there was no treatment available anywhere in Bahrain. From that early age, he decided that he would find a way to help
people like his relative.
In order to do this, he focused on becoming a doctor – a goal he achieved 1969 from the Alexandria University in Egypt.
He followed that with a year and a half in London, UK where he specialised and later went on to complete a post-graduate
residency at the American University of Beirut.
Dr. Khalil's commitment to the cause and care of dermatological conditions in the Kingdom led him to establish a department
of dermatology in what was then the Salmaniya Hospital and later to initiate and set up a Chair for Dermatology in order to
teach and train residents and family physicians in conditions and concerns with regard to the skin.
It was this desire to always remain up-to-date with international developments, which were behind Dr. Khalil's initiatives
to bring several new treatments to Bahrain. In 1974-75 he introduced Cryotherapy for the treatment of warts, skin lesions,
and other keratoses. He also introduced the very first PUVA (Ultra Light Therapy A & B) equipment for eczemas, psoriasis,
vitiligo and similar conditions. And when it comes to the now ubiquitous laser and Radio Frequency therapies, Dr. Khalil was
at the forefront of their introduction to the Kingdom.
Although more concerned with medical treatments, Dr. Khalil was open to the cosmetic needs of patients recognising the
importance of self-esteem and confidence in the holistic treatment of an individual. This inspired him to bring Mesotherapy
for weight loss and celluite reduction to Bahrain.
Today, there is a considerable shift towards beauty and cosmetology. Women and even men are resorting to procedures and treatments
to enhance their looks. To echo the words of Dr. Khalil, "Through all our treatments, at Allure (ADLC)
we strive to improve skin conditions and enhance beauty with the minimum of side effects.
At Allure (ADLC) we are committed to providing superior expertise to improve and enhance your skin and beauty. Our concept is to provide

At Allure ADLC we are pleased to say that we set the benchmark for excellence in aesthetic skin care and strive to improve the
