Laser hair removal can save you time, money, and energy spent removing unwanted hair. At Cope Cosmetic Dermatology, we can help you achieve smooth, hair-free skin with our best laser platforms.

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a treatment that permanently affects your body’s ability to grow new hair in specific areas. It works by administering very fast pulses of light energy of a specific wavelength that is attracted to pigment in the hair shaft. There, the energy travels into the follicle where it generates heat and damages the hair growth mechanisms. Over time, this process can permanently stop the follicle’s ability to create new hair.

Laser hair removal can be used on virtually any area of the body. Some of the most common treatment areas include:

  • Legs
  • Underarms
  • Face
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Shoulders
  • Bikini area

There are a variety of laser platforms that can be used for laser hair removal but one of the most effective options is IPL, or intense pulsed light. Our team can customize a treatment package for your unique needs.

What Are the Benefits of Laser Hair Removal?

Many people regularly wax, shave, pluck, or epilate to remove unwanted hair. If you spend a lot of time, money, and effort on removing hair, then laser hair removal can be an excellent investment in yourself. By drastically reducing hair growth, you can save time on removing hair or reduce the need for it entirely. It can also help you feel confident in situations where you would normally worry about whether you need to remove hair.

What Can I Expect From Laser Hair Removal Treatment?

Laser hair removal can take as little as ten minutes or as much as one hour, depending on the size of your treatment area. Our team can supply a topical numbing cream if needed but most patients can tolerate the treatment process. To begin, your skin will be cleansed and made ready, and you’ll be given protective eye shields. Then, the handpiece will be applied to the skin. Once the whole area is treated, your skin will be soothed and made ready for the rest of your day.

Laser Hair Removal Maintenance

It’s normal to have some redness and sensitivity in the treatment area, similar to a sunburn. This typically goes away within 1-2 days. It’s extremely important to keep your skin protected with sunscreen and avoid any irritating skincare products. Depending on your goals and treatment area, you may need several sessions, and our team will ensure you understand your complete treatment schedule.
