Experience laser hair removal in Pembroke Pines, a non-surgical procedure that uses laser technology to remove unwanted body hair and prevent its future growth. High-intensity beams of light are targeted at the area to be treated, which is then absorbed by the melanin pigment found in the hair follicles. As a result, hair follicles are damaged, preventing future growth. Any area of the body, including the face, can be treated using this procedure.
laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is one of the most common aesthetic procedures done in the U.S. It is a simple and painless procedure that produces effective, visible results. It is especially common among people who are tired of having to tweeze, shave, and/or wax all the time to remove unwanted hair. Laser hair removal serves as a more permanent solution.
The procedure is approved by the FDA and has been administered on millions of patients across the globe for years.
What is the
The laser hair removal procedure takes about 15 to 60 minutes in most cases, depending on the size of the area to be treated. First, your medical provider will clean and disinfect the area to make sure that excess oil, dirt, and bacteria are removed. If the area to be treated is particularly sensitive, a numbing gel may be applied.
You will be provided special eyewear to protect your eyes from the laser. The head of the laser hair removal equipment is placed against your skin, where a beam of high-intensity light energy is focused on the targeted area. Although more or less painless, you may feel a slight stinging sensation when the light energy is absorbed by the skin.
At Olam Med Spa, we use the Spectrum 810-DIODE laser for our laser hair removal in Pembroke Pines. This comes with a large spot size and a built-in contact cooling, which helps in keeping your skin cool while the light energy is delivered to the targeted area. It also has a hertz rate of up to 10 pulses per second.
Small areas usually take approximately 15 to 20 minutes, while larger areas such as the chest area may take about 60 minutes or more.
Is there any
At Olam Med Spa, there is minimal downtime required after your laser hair removal, and you can return to your normal daily routine after your treatment. However, it is important to wear sunscreen for several weeks after your procedure and avoid direct exposure to sunlight for about six weeks. Taking such safety measures can help prevent further irritation.
You may experience slight swelling and redness a few hours after the procedure. This shouldn’t alarm you as it is a normal reaction and will go away on its own.

When will I see results
and how long will they last?
You will see a visible reduction in body hair right after your procedure. Optimal results are seen in about two weeks post-treatment.
You may need more than one session to get the results you want. Most patients see a 10 to 25 percent reduction in their body hair after their first laser hair removal session. If you want to lose your body hair permanently, you may need about three to eight sessions.
Of course, each individual is different, which is why it is so important to have a thorough consultation with a medical professional. At Olam Med Spa, we provide a customized laser hair removal treatment plan for each patient, after taking into consideration their individual conditions and goals.
