What can laser treatment do for my complexion?
Laser treatments have a broad range of effects they can provide depending on the type of laser and the way your doctor uses it. However, most laser treatments tighten the skin, increasing collagen production and improving the appearance of the complexion. Laser treatment can help you feel great about the way you look.

Am I a good candidate for laser treatment?
Those considering laser treatment should be in good general health and able to undergo the procedure without complications. Patients should have realistic expectations for their results and understand that most laser treatments require touch-up appointments to maintain their results.

Types of Laser Treatment in Boulder, CO

  • Photofacial/Photorejuvenation: As the name suggests, this type of laser treatment rejuvenates the skin with intense pulsed light (IPL). It reaches down into the skin’s lower layers to decrease redness and even out the skin tone.
  • Profractional Laser/Skin Resurfacing: This type of laser treatment provides a firmer, smoother appearance and can target problems like acne, unwanted sun spots or veins, or rosacea. Laser resurfacing stimulates the production of collagen, which keeps the skin taut and smooth.
  • Laser Hair Removal: Laser hair removal targets unwanted hair anywhere on the body, often targeting armpit, facial, pubic, or leg hair. The laser destroys the hair follicle, preventing it from producing hair in the future. Most patients require several laser hair removal sessions before they see permanent results and may require touch-up sessions after their initial series of treatments.
