Tattoos is the oldest as well as the most famous form of body art. These can mean a lot of things to a lot of people. Often it is a way to express some inner belief. While most people are passionate about their tattoos, some lose the interest or have other reasons to get them removed.

Traditionally,tattoo removal has been a big problem. The methods employed are quite severe and highly invasive in most cases. To counter this problem, Laser tattoo removal is the right solution. It works really well in getting rid of unwanted tattoos without much trouble. Let’s learn more about the laser tattoo removal in Dubai.

A look into the treatment

The treatment works with a fairly simple principle of breaking down the tattoo pigmentation so that the body’s natural immune system can remove it. This happens with the laser coming in contact with the tattoo and breaking it down into smaller bits.

The immune system that works on the ink from day one is able to remove the smaller bits. The complete tattoo is too large to remove for the immune system though it is able to lessen its sharpness to a great degree with time.

How long does the treatment take?

A treatment session generally lasts for a less than an hour. This depends on the size of the tattoo as well as its design and the colors that are used in it. In order to fully remove a tattoo, several sessions are required. Your doctor can best assess your individual needs after examining your ink.

A gap of four to six weeks is kept between sessions and a significant reduction in the tattoo can be observed after each of these sessions.

Is the treatment painful?

There is some pain involved in the treatment which is similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin. However, this can be countered with the help of a cooling gel which may be applied prior to the treatment. The general level of pain from the treatment is a lot less than what you expect from the other more invasive treatment.

Side effects

There are some common side effects which one can expect to take place. These include redness and swelling in the treated area. Icepacks in can be used to counter these issues if they persist. In some rare cases, bruising and/or discoloration of skin can also take place. Usually these are temporary problems and go away pretty quickly.

The treatment will lead to photosensitivity so be ready for it. Avoid the sun during peak hours of the day. Also apply sunscreen and wear a large hat to keep the UV rays away. If the tattoo is on the body, ensure that you wear fully clothing that covers it well.


There is no downtime after the treatment and regular routine can be carried on with due care.  If you can take some time off, it will help you recover quicker. Some general chores may need to be avoided for a couple of days after the treatment. Your doctor can guide you on the specifics that you will need to follow.
