Different Types of Lasers Make All the Difference

We strive to give you the best and most complete information on laser technology to help you make an informed decision.

Did you know for Laser Hair Removal:

Different wavelengths are needed for different skin types.

  • 755nm Alexandrite is used for lighter skin types 1-3.
  • 1064nm Nd:YAG is used for darker skin types 4-6.
  • 810nm Diode for skin types 1-4 only.

Intense Pulse Light (IPL) is not the proper device for hair removal. Why?

  • Because IPL cannot distinguish between melanin in your skin and melanin in your hair, there can be drastic side effects for darker skin types.
  • Do not allow anyone to use an IPL on you if you are a dark skin type!

Did you know for Laser Tattoo Removal:

Different lasers are needed to remove different ink colors.

  • 1064nm is used to remove black
  • 694nm/755nm is used to remove blues and greens
  • 532nm is used to remove reds and oranges

Rocky Mountain Laser College has all three wavelengths and is the only Colorado Laser Clinic that has the Q-switched 755nm Accolade by Cynosure to remove greens and blues. What’s so good about the Accolade?  It is FAST!  The Cynosure Accolade fires up to 10 times faster than other blue/green lasers making the tattoo removal procedure quick.
