Laser Tattoo Removal

Personal tastes and times constantly change. That’s why removing unwanted tattoos will make a huge difference in how you feel about yourself. Experience the wonders of cosmetic laser treatment . . . and experience a new you.

Decorating the human body with tattoos dates back to the beginning of recorded history. Today, many people continue to think of tattoos as totally permanent. But with modern laser technology, tattoos are no longer forever.

Laser tattoo removal is a safe and effective way to eliminate unwanted tattoos. Your tattoo removal sessions can be easily customized to your specific needs – with optimal results, maximum comfort during treatment, and minimal recovery and downtime. As a top aesthetic and dermatology clinic in Dubai, Omnicare’s skilled staff provides world-class laser tattoo removal.

How does it work?

Medical lasers use a powerful beam of light to significantly lighten or completely remove your tattoo. When the ink particles absorb the light from the laser, they are broken up into fragments and then absorbed and eliminated through your body’s immune system. This process generally takes a few weeks. The larger the tattoo, the more sessions it will take to break down the ink particles.

Frequently Asked Questions

Some patients say they feel a slight sting, like the snap of a rubber band on the skin. Many treatments do not require anesthetics. However, some patients feel more comfortable with a local numbing agent, such as a topical anesthetic.

Each session usually takes 10-30 minutes.

The number of treatments required for optimal results depends on the size, location, depth and color of the tattoo. Treatments should be performed 4-8 weeks apart in order to allow the body to remove the maximum amount of tattoo pigment after each treatment. You will continue to see lightening of your tattoo after each treatment as your body disposes of more pigment.

Right after your treatment, your skin will have a white discoloration and the area around the tattoo may become reddish and appear swollen. This is normal and will disappear slowly over time. Immediately after treatment, antibacterial ointment and gauze will be applied to the treated area to reduce the risk of infection.

The full results of each session will take about 5 weeks to show.
