Get the smooth, hair-free skin you’ve always wanted. Laser hair removal is a safe treatment for the effective and gentle removal of unwanted hair.
Am I good candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
Our Certified Laser Specialist® will determine your skin type using the Fitzpatrick skin chart during your laser hair removal consultation. We then can determine which laser will be most effective for laser hair removal treatment. Light skinned clients need a 755nm Alexandrite laser and darker-skinned individuals need a 1064nm Nd:YAG laser. Our laser technicians will determine the wavelength that is ideal for your skin type and we have both types of lasers here… it makes a difference!
What about using an IPL for hair removal?
We all hear about Intense Pulse Light (IPL) devices being used for laser hair removal. First IPL is not a laser and it cannot tell the difference between your natural skin color (or suntan) and your hair color. So the chance of burns and hypopigmentation are greatly increased by using a IPL. And as always, IPL should only be used on skin types 1-3 and NEVER on skin types 4-6!
How does Laser Hair Removal work?
The energy from the laser passes harmlessly through the skin where it is absorbed by the color in your hair. The laser energy heats up the hair follicle and disables it so hair won’t grow back.
Who performs Laser Hair Removal?
The instructors of Rocky Mountain Laser College will be the technicians performing your consultation, as well as your treatment. Our staff of highly trained and knowledgeable Certified Laser Specialists® have trained many of Denver’s laser hair removal practitioners. At Rocky Mountain Laser College, we pride ourselves on giving clients the most safe and effective Laser Hair Removal treatments with the newest technology and techniques.
How much time goes by between sessions?
Generally speaking, treatments are spaced 4 weeks apart depending on the body area and the hair cycle length for that area. The shedding of the treated hairs should be complete within 1-2 weeks.
What are the side effects and risks?
After laser hair removal treatments, some normal side effects may occur. These include itching, redness and swelling around the treatment area. These side effects should not last more than three days. Some level of pain should also be expected during treatments.
Numbing creams are usually not used because they diminish the effectiveness of the treatment. Icing the area after the treatment helps relieve the side effects faster. These risks can be avoided when being treated with proper wavelengths and appropriate settings for the individual’s skin type. Please reference our laser hair removal after care instructions.
Laser Hair Removal Pricing, Per Session*
Multiple treatments, typically 4 to 8, spaced 4-5 weeks apart are needed to capture typical hair cycle patterns for each area. Some clients may need touch up treatments or on-going maintenance after the initial set of treatments. We are moving back to the industry standard of pricing by body area. We tried a progressive pricing method using the duration of treatment. However, the majority of our clients prefer a set treatment price per area.

What can I expect after a session of laser hair removal?
Immediately after laser hair removal, redness and bumps at the treatment area are normal. It may feel like a sunburn for a few hours. If needed, use a cold compress to ease the burn sensation. Usually, there is no ‘downtime’ for laser hair removal, only stay out of the sun or hot tubs for a couple of days. For any crusting, apply antibiotic cream onto the treated area. Keep in mind people with darker skin types may experience more discomfort and longer healing time.
