What is Laser Tattoo Removal?
Laser tattoo removal Dubai is a technique that helps you get rid of unwanted permanent tattoos with minimal pain. It utilizes a special laser device that directs the laser beam on the tattoo to be removed. The laser beam heats the tattoo pigments which break down into smaller particles of ink and get expelled from the body through the lymphatic system. In the whole procedure, the surrounding skin does not get harmed.
Are you a Candidate?

- You have overall good health both mental and physical.

- You should be more than 18 years old.
Which Machine & Laser is used?
At Dubai Cosmetic Surgery Clinic, we use the Medica PICO laser system to perform laser tattoo removal. Moreover, the type of laser used for the procedure is Q-switched Nd: YAG laser. It is approved by the FDA for tattoo removal in Dubai and is safe to use.
How to prepare for the treatment?
In order to undergo the laser treatment for tattoo removal, you need to follow some instructions to prepare for it. These instructions include;
- Use sunscreen with strong SPF and avoid excessive sun exposure for almost 3-4 weeks.
- Do not wax or thread the tattoo area.
- Take all the prescribed medicines on time.
- Take enough sleep the night before the treatment.
Laser Tattoo Removal Procedure
There is no need to administer anesthesia during the laser tattoo removal Dubai because it does not cause any pain. You might require 4-6 sessions for the complete removal of the tattoo. The number of sessions depends on the area of the tattoo, the color of the tattoo’s ink, and the type of skin. It is comparatively easier to remove the tattoo that is black in color because black ink effectively absorbs heat. It can take 30 minutes to an hour to perform the procedure, depending on the size of the tattoo. The procedure includes the following steps;
- First of all, the laser therapist applies a numbing cream to the treatment site for almost 30-45 minutes.
- The numbing cream is then wiped off and a cooling gel is applied so that you can tolerate the laser heat.
- A hand-held laser device is brought closer to the targeted area.
- The device emits short pulses of the high-intensity laser beam which breaks the ink pigments into tiny particles.
- These particles are then removed by the lymphatic system of the body.
- The settings of the laser system are changed according to the color of the tattoos. The light colors take a lot of time and effort to fade away.
- Ice packs are used to minimize the discomfort.
- Your laser specialist might also apply a topical antibiotic to the treatment site to prevent infection.
To ensure a smooth recovery and successful results, you need to follow these aftercare instructions;
- Apply antibiotic ointment to the treated area to avoid infections.
- Use ice packs to minimize pain and discomfort.
- Keep the treatment site dry for one day after the treatment. Do not wash the treatment site or take shower for 6-8 hours after the treatment.
- Do not touch the targeted area and avoid scratching the scabs.
- Use sunscreen when going out and avoid the sun even after the procedure.
