Words by Chanelle Ho

Need a treatment whilst in Dubai? Here’s the crème de la crème of the city’s beauty hubs.

In a city where opulence knows no bounds, Dubai continues to establish itself as a global hub for those pursuing luxury beauty and rejuvenation. Non-surgical treatments are increasingly popular due to the lack of downtime they require and their ability to make subtle enhancements with a significant impact. The city is fast becoming a go-to destination for non-invasive tweakments and aesthetic refinement, so to help you navigate the many clinics, we’ve rounded up five of the best that deliver on service, treatments, and results.


Possibly one of Dubai’s most prestigious and renowned clinics, Biolite is one of the city’s top destinations for premium beauty treatments. From plastic surgery and laser hair removal to aesthetic treatments such as Botox and Ultherapy and high-tech facials, you can address any beauty concern here. Just a stone’s throw away from the Burj Al Arab, you’re met with warm luxury from the moment you step into the clinic: spa-like and elegant surroundings, friendly staff who’ll remember your name after the first visit, and, best of all, a completely bespoke service.

After a thorough consultation with a Biolite doctor, nurse, or cosmetic therapist, you’ll be given a personalised treatment programme which includes a defined selection of beauty and wellness treatments. We recommend booking in for the Revive 360 – a tailored programme that considers aesthetic beauty, health, and body care. Expect blood tests, IVs, infrared saunas, and the Diamond Glow Facial – a signature treatment involving exfoliation, extraction, and infusion of your chosen serum, using a diamond tip for a radiant glow.


Ouronyx, situated in Zaha Hadid’s Opus Tower, focuses exclusively on non-surgical face treatments and is the city’s destination for state-of-the-art technology and luxurious skin treatments. You certainly feel your best from the moment you walk in, greeted by plush, elegant interiors, digital artwork of fluttering gold butterflies by Dominic Harris, and a five-star concierge service.

Consultations and treatments are incredibly detailed. The team use a 3D visualisation system to measure everything from wrinkle depth to skin texture, with interactive screens on the walls to explain every detail in depth; post-treatment, a professional makeup artist is on hand with skincare and medical makeup so you can face the world confidently.

The skin treatments are a must, but for something different, we recommend the micrografting treatment for hair restoration. This powerful procedure stimulates hair growth using tiny skin grafts to harness the follicle-boosting progenitor cells and growth factors, which are then reinjected to give sparse strands a new lease of life. With results visible after three months, it’s ideal for men or women experiencing hair thinning and loss.

The Elixir Clinic

Co-founders Acaena Amoros and Mahi Aramideh set up The Elixir Clinic (previously in Harrods London) as Dubai’s ultimate health and beauty hub, offering intravenous therapy and aesthetic treatments, Ozone therapy, and facials. The luxurious space – black, gold, and cream in decor – encourages a holistic 360 lifestyle for clients who want to go beyond just a beauty treatment. Amoros and Aramideh began their careers in cancer research, working with patients suffering from chronic diseases. The use of IV therapy and its positive results was the catalyst for their clinic that promotes long-term well-being.

While you can indulge in skin treatments such as the beloved Hydrafacial, Fire & Ice Facial, microneedling, or thread lifts, we recommend trying the signature IV Drip Therapy; after all, it’s what makes The Elixir Clinic a leader in the wellness space. After a consultation, you receive a bespoke infusion of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants designed to optimise and boost your body – whether you’d like a concoction to improve your mood, boost energy levels, enhance your fitness, or support the treatment of chronic conditions and illness.

Aesthetics International

Founded in 2011 by specialist plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr Jaffer Khan, Aesthetics International has quickly become one of Dubai’s most established cosmetic clinics. While Dr Khan is hailed for his plastic surgery, if you’re looking for something non-invasive, you can find most skin and body treatments here, including dermal fillers, Morpheus8, Hydrafacial, Ultherapy, and Mesotherapy.

If you’re looking for a total skin overhaul, we recommend booking the SkinDNA Test. This revolutionary procedure uses your DNA to identify the right skincare ingredients and necessary treatments. Utilising gene mapping, it identifies things like collagen breakdown, sun damage, pigmentation, wrinkling, and skin sensitivity in a completely pain-free and quick procedure. Results are back from the lab within 7–10 days, and you’re left with a tailored treatment plan for your healthiest and best skin yet.

Lucia Clinic

This A-list hotspot (loved by many, including Naomi Campbell, Huda Kattan, and Joan Smalls) was founded by internationally renowned dermatologist Dr Radnmila Lukian. Using only the highest quality products and cutting-edge equipment, choose from injectables such as Botox and Profilho, devices including RF Pixel and Sofwave, body contouring machines such as EmSculpt and CoolSculpting, or endless lasers. The extensive treatment menu offers everything you could want for your skin and body needs.

Lucia Clinic was the first in the Middle East to introduce the latest version of the fat-burning and muscle-toning treatment EmSculpt NEO Edge. Ideal for anyone looking to tighten and tone their body (best used on abs, but can also treat your arms, legs, and glutes), this non-invasive device wraps around body areas that contain stubborn fat and uses a combination of HIFEM energy with radiofrequency to heat and eliminate fatty tissue and stimulate 20,000 muscle contractions. The end result? Around three months after treatment, you’ll begin to see a tighter, more toned, and smoother body.
