Dr. Nick Slenkovich, chief practitioner at Colorado Plastic Surgery Center, helms a team of cosmetic medical professionals who serve patients with compassionate medical care and cutting-edge procedures. During each 60-minute, intense-pulsed-light photofacial, a skilled technician analyzes the patient's skin to diagnose problem areas and chart a treatment plan before harnessing the laser light to seek and destroy impurities under the skin’s surface. The laser treatments aim to break-up groups of pigment, assuaging the effects of sun damage, broken capillaries, acne, and facial break dancing. After each treatment, discarded skin cells continue to regenerate over the next 7 to 14 days, with residual rosiness fading after a few days. Two to four treatments are recommended for optimal results.
At its locations in Loveland and Denver, Tattoo Must Go's expert technicians erase unwelcome ink with a Q-switched laser, which sends nanosecond pulses of intense light to the treatment area. Patients go through a complimentary consultation before treatment begins, determining the number of sessions necessary depending on ink colors, skin tones, and how many Alfs are in the tattoo. During half-hour treatments, the laser breaks down particles of any color while minimally affecting the skin. A Zimmer Cryo 6 Chiller provides additional comfort during the process, keeping the treated area cool. Patients can return for their next treatment in as few as three weeks.

Laserwave Clinic harnesses advanced laser technology to combat everything from unwanted tattoos and body hair to nail fungus and yellowed teeth. Technicians target follicles during efficient, 10-to-20-minute laser hair removal sessions that can help permanently reduce unwanted growth. Tattoo-removal treatments begin with a blast from the cryofreezing machine, which numbs areas and makes cold hearts even colder before a laser sweeps in to break up epidermal debris. The team’s lasers also beam across teeth to brighten smiles and heat up nails to hinder unsightly fungus.
The certified laser technicians at What Were You Inking? wield an Astanza YAG laser to undo tattoos inked in any color. After an initial assessment determines the proper course of treatment for tats of up to 10 square inches, staffers choose one of three light wavelengths to tackle and break up pigment during each 15-minute treatment. Most tattoos typically disappear after 5–10 treatments, depending on the image’s age, the type of ink used, and whether it was professionally created or drawn on using a half-melted Kit Kat. Clients typically experience little discomfort, and side effects are mild and may include temporary redness or swelling. What Were You Inking? answers additional client questions online on its FAQ page.
