Non-Surgical Cosmetic Procedures in Dubai

Non-surgical cosmetic procedures in Dubai are regulated by the Dubai Health Authority or DHA. 

In general, non-surgical cosmetic procedures are defined as “elective techniques” which are focused on “enhancing a patient’s appearance”, using “non-invasive” or “minimally invasive” procedures. 

  • Some examples of non-surgical cosmetic procedures, subject to the DHA regulations include: 
    • Botox
    • Laser and IPL hair removal 
    • Chemical peels 
    • Face fillers
    • Micro-needling 
    • Body shaping treatments 
    • Lymphatic drainage 
    • Cryotherapy, as well as
    • Piercings and
    • Tattoos

Importantly, most non-surgical cosmetic procedures must be performed: 1) in DHA-licensed clinical health facilities, And, depending on the procedure, 2) must be performed by the appropriate health professionals, who are authorizedto perform those kinds of procedures. 

For example, there are certain procedures, which only dermatologists and plastic surgeons can conduct. And, there are some procedures which beauty therapists are authorized to perform. 

The specific requirements and guidelines are set out, in extensive detail, in the DHA’s Standards for Non-Surgical Cosmetic Procedures, Version 2, which was issued in June 2022, and has been effective as of August 2022.
