Non Surgical Rejuvenation - Permanent Hair Reduction and Removal

Not having to shave or wax unwanted hair has never been more easy and affordable. At Copa Vida Medical Spa, we offer the latest laser technology, the "Cool-Glide." This FDA approved medical grade system is for all skin and hair types. You can have nearly any area of our body treated for hair removal.

During your initial consulation, the technician will give you an evaluation as to the potential effectiveness of having your hair permanently removed or reduced. In some cases patients will have a test spot treated before having the full treatment. In most cases, the patient will have some redness, following the procedure in the area treated.

This will normally last from 10 minutes to a few hours. It is helpful to have an ice pack applied to the area for several minutes following the treatment, which we will provide if needed.

If the area treated will be exposed to sunlight, it is important that you use a high SPF sunscreen (of 30 or higher) for the first 7-10 days after the treatment.

Hair grows in cycles and the hair treated with the laser will not reach hair that is in the next cycle of growth and has not yet surfaced. For this reason it is usually necessary to have 4-6 treatments, spaced out between 4-8 weeks to achieve the best results.

Patients are asked to not have waxed 3-weeks or less before the treatment. You will be asked however to shave the area you would like treated just prior to your appointment. Typically treatments take 30-minutes or less.
