The Colorado Center for Photomedicine’s intense pulsed light procedures liberate skin from signs of light-based damage such as liver spots, freckles, and general redness with minimal discomfort or downtime. After consulting with a registered nurse or aesthetician, patients sit back and fierce yet virtually painless flashes of light break apart deep-set pigmentation on the face, attempting to reverse the effects of age in 30-minute treatments that allow patients to begin using their old student IDs with confidence. This Groupon includes one session, but three sessions are recommended to fully erase most discolored spots, which tend to appear darker immediately after treatment before sloughing off 10−14 days later. The clinic’s expert nurse and aesthetician are trained to wield the IPL laser safely and to make sure that unwanted age spots are not a sign of cancer or the mark of a cattle baron.

Specializing exclusively in disappearing unwanted tattoos, Tattoo Undo's technicians wield MedLite C6 lasers with expert precision. They numb inked regions with a cream and zap away tattoos over a series of sessions spaced up to six weeks apart, leaving little to no scarring. Over 3–10 treatments that last just minutes, the four-wavelength laser is able to target every pigment, fracturing the ink into smaller particles that are removed by the immune system.
i-Lipo Chic vigorously shakes hands with science to usher in a new age of painless cosmetic treatments. Their signature service, for example, streamlines physiques by sending in non-invasive lasers to deflate fat cells, eliminating downtime, pain, and risk in the process. Featured on The Doctors and Dr. Oz, the FDA-approved treatment opens temporary pores in fat cells, through which they release their contents. While the process occurs at a micro level, the overall results are visible to the naked eye and the clothed eye alike. The treatments smooth away cellulite and slim the circumferences of areas such as stomachs, arms, and thighs.
At Rethink the Ink, certified laser specialists help clients forget about deep-set skin stains by breaking down unwanted ink with highly concentrated pulses of pure light. Prior to taking on the task of removing body graffiti, each technician receives thorough training from Lorenzo Kunze, M.E., who was a pioneer in the advancement of aesthetic and medical laser treatments. During each 10-minute treatment the team collaborates with an advanced Quanta DNA laser system, which features a large spot size to treat multiple ink colors at once. The treatment—the feeling of which is often likened to being snapped by a rubber band—also maximizes comfort by applying chilled air to the skin courtesy of a Zimmer Cryo 6 cooling system. The body's natural immune function gradually removes broken-down ink after each treatment, eventually leaving skin free of scars and out-of-date shopping lists.
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.
