Scar refers to the trauma that comes with the recovery or healing of the skin after an injury. Most scars tend to vanish with time, but few may remain for an extended period, causing discomfort or altering the cosmetic appearance of the affected area. Fortunately, it is possible to get rid of unsightly scars with Scar Removal Treatment in Dubai. Choosing a Scar Removal Treatment depends on the scar’s size, severity, and behavior. Generally, prescribed topical ointments and creams can eliminate temporary scars successfully. However, permanent scars require proper treatment for their removal.

Some effective Scar Removal Treatments in Dubai to either minimize the scars’ appearance or altogether remove them are as follows:
Topical medications, including prescribed creams, ointments, gels, lotions, etc., can successfully reduce the appearance of scars on the skin. Your dermatologist will decide the most suitable topical options for your skin during the initial consultation.
Dermal fillers are injectable fillers to help reduce scars on the skin. They are soft tissues inserted into the top layer of the skin to rejuvenate it by improving its texture. As a result, they get rid of wrinkles, scars, and other related skin problems.
Skin resurfacing is also used for removing different types of scars, especially acne scar removal. It uses treatments, such as Microdermabrasion or Chemical Peels, to remove unsightly scars. The techniques remove the top layer of the skin, and as a result, a smoother and fresher layer appears underneath.
Laser Scar Removal
Laser Scar Removal is the most popular treatment for different types of scars, especially Deep Scar Treatment in Dubai. Generally, multiple lasers are available to treat different types of scars. However, the most used is the PICO Laser. During the initial consultation, the dermatologist will suggest compatible laser treatment for your skin.
Generally, a dermatologist guides the candidates about preparing for a Scar Removal Treatment during the initial meeting. However, some general instructions about preparing for the treatment are as follows:
- Abstain from excessive sun exposure.
- Do not apply any facial creams for a few days before the treatment.
- Do not stress your skin.
- Use an anti-bacterial cleanser to cleanse the skin before the procedure.
- Wash and shave the area where the scar is before going for the procedure.
Laser Scar Removal Procedure
At the start, the dermatologist applies a numbing cream to numb your skin. After numbing the skin, they will use a handheld device set to the desired wavelength to target scar deposits. As a result, it removes the topmost layer of the scar and enhances the skin’s collagen production, ultimately eliminating the scar.
Some general post-procedure instructions are as follows:
- In the case of discomfort, apply cold compresses to get rid of them.
- Do not wash the treated areas for a few hours.
- Use only prescribed topical ointments and creams.
- Stay hydrated for most of the time.
- Abstain from massaging or scratching the skin.
Recovery and Results
There is no downtime associated with a Laser Scar Removal Treatment. Generally, candidates can resume their routine immediately after the treatment. However, the recovery time varies for each treatment, taking 3-7 days.
As the skin heals completely, candidates will witness a quick and dramatic reduction of scars. However, to entirely remove scars from your skin, you may need to undergo several treatments.
Some benefits of Laser Scar Removal are as follows:
- The procedure is non-surgical and minimally invasive.
- It is a pain-free procedure.
- It has no downtime.
- The procedure is quick, safe, and easy to perform.
- There are no risks or side effects of this treatment.
