Human hair grows where it wants to, but not always where you like it. And in the ongoing battle between hair and you, hair may have gotten the upper hand.
It might now be time for you to even the score and then grab the lead for good with our Denver laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal uses a targeted beam of light to remove unwanted hair from almost any area of your body. This technique is both safe and effective. It keeps your hair from reproducing while avoiding damage to your skin and underlying tissues.
The treatment converts light to heat. Each section of hair is treated with a short pulse of laser energy. As the laser light is absorbed by the pigment in your hair, it turns to heat, which then damages the follicles that produce hair. This damage inhibits and can even permanently shut off future hair growth in your targeted areas.
Timing is important. Hairs must be in the “growth stage” for laser hair removal to work. By scheduling multiple treatment sessions over a period of several weeks, the laser can destroy every targeted hair in your selected area as the hairs enter the growth stage.
At Rejuvenate, we strive to deliver the best laser hair removal Denver has to offer, so we use the Syneron eMax laser hair removal system, considered by many to be the best hair removal device on the market.
This innovative technology combines laser and bipolar radiofrequency energy to destroy hair roots in two ways. This combination of technology leads to more effective permanent hair removal compared to older technologies. The Syneron eMax laser works on a wide range of hair and skin colors.
Let’s start with the best part. Wouldn’t it be great not having to shave, wax, or tweeze again, or at the least for long intervals? Laser hair removal is:
Plus, this laser treatment can often eliminate ingrown hairs that irritate your skin and aggravate your mind! Athletes frequently undergo laser hair removal since hairless skin can shave precious hundredths of seconds off performance times.
You are a good candidate if you want to eliminate hair from selected areas of your body permanently. Ideal candidates for laser hair removal have light skin and darker hair, but the procedure can treat all skin tones and types.
Our laser hair removal treatment can treat almost every area. However, it cannot treat the area around your eyes or your eyelids. Men most frequently want to remove hair from their chest, back, legs, stomach, neck, and the area between their eyebrows (eliminating the dreaded “unibrow”). For women, the most popular hair removal procedures performed include:
Yes, when performed by a licensed provider using the latest and most precise lasers in a professional setting. Laser hair removal has not been linked to any type of cancer. Laser hair removal is the safest way to get permanent hair removal results, period.
For blonde hair, it depends on the shade. The laser will not work on “bleach blonde” hair, or hair that is platinum or white. Red hair can be treated as long as there is enough pigment in the hair for the laser to work.
Home-use lasers are indeed available. But no study indicates these home treatments are more effective than those performed by licensed, professional providers. And consider this: the FDA classifies these home lasers as cosmetic, rather than medical, devices.
That means the home-use lasers don’t get nearly the amount of scrutiny given to professional-grade lasers. Finally, only professional providers can assess your skin and hair types and tones, and adjust your treatment accordingly. Miscalculating on your own could lead to serious burns or eye injuries.
Before your consultation, it’s best not to shave so that our laser technician can see the density and coarseness of the hair. This assessment helps determine the number of laser sessions needed to obtain your desired result.
Tell your provider if you have a history of heavy scarring or are prone to cold sore outbreaks during your consultation. If you take any blood-thinning medication or supplement, you will need to suspend use until after your laser treatment. As for preparation, stay out of the sun for four weeks prior to your treatment, and avoid tanning beds and self-tanning products.
Shave the day of your procedure. A close shave before laser hair removal is important because it helps the laser target and destroy the hair follicle, rather than the hair itself. A close shave enables the laser to travel through your hair smoothly and efficiently. Avoid waxing, plucking, or tweezing for at least three weeks before your appointment. Show up for your treatment with clean skin, devoid of makeup or sunscreen.
Typically, your provider will apply a topical numbing medication to your treatment area about a half-hour before your procedure.
You and your provider will need to wear eye protection. It will also be necessary to protect the outer layers of your skin with a cold gel or cooling device. Depending on the size of your treatment area, your laser procedure could take anywhere from about 20 minutes to an hour. When your procedure has been completed, you may be given ice packs or cold water to cool down your treatment area and ease any remaining discomfort.
You will feel mildly sunburned for a couple of days. If your face was treated, you can wear makeup unless your skin is blistering. Wear a high-SPF sunscreen (30 or higher) going forward to help prevent temporary changes in the color of your treated skin.
Yes. Most people need 7-10 treatment sessions to “max out” their results and achieve 95-100% hair removal. The recommended number of treatment sessions varies based on hair density, thickness and color.
Hairs will not fall out immediately after laser hair removal, but instead will shed over a period of days to weeks. You will need a series of treatments, each separated by 4-6 weeks, to make sure you target each hair during its growth cycle.

You will feel a slight prick or a “snap.” But the laser produces much less discomfort than other hair removal procedures. During your treatment, a cooling spray can be used to enhance your comfort.
Laser hair removal is not instant. Approximately 10-20 percent of treated hairs will gradually fall out within three weeks of treatment. It is not necessary to pluck hairs. Let them fall out naturally. You will notice a reduction in body hair after each treatment. Each laser hair removal session builds on the results of the previous one.
Between 95 and 100 percent of patients are hair-free in treated areas after 7-10 treatment sessions. Fluctuating hormones can, in some cases, allow hair to grow back.
Reported side effects include temporary skin irritation and pigmentation changes that may be temporary or permanent. Rarely, laser hair removal has caused scarring or changes in skin texture.
Not over the tattoo area itself. The laser may misread the ink in your tattoo as hair pigment, which could result in burns. So if you are planning to have a tattoo in an area you would like hair removed, we recommend having hair removal beforehand.
Waxing is a temporary treatment, not to mention a rather uncomfortable one. On the other hand, laser hair removal is often permanent and doesn’t hurt nearly as much as waxing.
Since laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure, your insurance will likely not pay for it.
That will depend on the size and number of the areas you want to be treated and how many sessions are necessary to achieve your goals.
A recent survey by The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported that the average cost of laser hair removal was slightly less than $400 per session.
