About West Coast Laser
West Coast Laser was born in 2004 because of the product interest, expertise and a bit of luck of Jeff Richmond, its founder and President. As the son of a physician himself, Jeff recognized the need of specialty providers to have a reliable source of technologic expertise and business savvy to choose equipment that would enhance their practice revenue and provide patients with what they were asking for. Physicians need to focus on what they do best – practice medicine, providing the most up to date and best services they can offer to their patients. Word of mouth information culled from colleagues is important, but it is also necessary to have an expert on YOUR team, looking exclusively at YOUR practice and goals, to help make long term equipment decisions. Physicians want to receive accurate information that is concisely delivered and academically sound. Because he understands the importance of top quality information, Jeff and his staff pride themselves on providing it. Each technology we represent has been carefully chosen. We handpick technologies from around the globe based on ease-of-use, patient safety, efficacy and bottom line to docs. We specialize in both proven and cutting-edge technology.
BTL Vanquish ME Receives FDA Clearance for Circumferential Reduction
Looking for a completely non-invasive and painless body contouring solution with zero consumable cost? In June of 2015, BTL Vanquish ME received an FDA clearance for circumferential reduction of the abdomen.

Providing a clinically proven and safe treatment option without touching the patient’s skin, the breakthrough technology of BTL Vanquish ME surpasses earlier treatment options that require uncomfortable suction or labor-intensive application. The BTL Vanquish ME achieves results that all patients want — a beautifully contoured abdomen and smaller waistline. The new BTL Vanquish ME Flex adapter contours and tightens inner and outer thighs.

“We have had only positive experiences with West Coast Laser, both their owner and staff always do their best to give the best customer service and technical instruction. They are both knowledgeable and professional; I highly recommend them as a vendor.
Judy McNamar, Practice Manager, Dermatology & Laser Center NW – Bellingham, WA
“Our practice has been working with West Coast Lasers for more than four years. This is the most convenient, cost effective method that allows us to provide a variety of laser treatments to our patients without having to spend thousands of dollars purchasing the technology or paying for upkeep; especially since technology changes so often and is expensive to repair. Having a West Coast Laser representative setup the equipment and assist our doctor during treatment is an added bonus and provides a positive experience, consistent treatment and positive outcome for our patients. I recommend West Coast Lasers to any practice that values quality patient care, consistent service and the ability to offer a wide variety of services to their patient base.“
