Laser Hair Removal
Kallgren Dermatology offers laser hair removal at our clinic in Boulder. Laser hair removal is an alternative to waxing and shaving areas of the body where hair is unwanted. Laser technology uses a machine to produce a single wavelength of a concentrated light beam that targets the dark pigment of the hair, causing damage to the hair melanin in the hair follicle and reducing the re-growth of the hair-preventing further damage to the surrounding tissue. This technology is extremely effective and efficient and most patients see permanent hair reduction after about 6-12 sessions.
Why do people choose Laser procedures for their hair removal?
- Much more precise and selectively targets dark, coarse, and unwanted hairs.
- Each pulse of the laser takes just a fraction of a second and can treat multiple hairs at the same time.
- Laser hair removal can treat large areas of the body.
- Safe for all skin color and types as the laser can be adjusted to suit each individual’s skin needs

IPL Hair Removal
IPL (Intense Pulse Light) is a hair removal treatment similar to a Laser. Instead of using a single wavelength of concentrated light to target the hair follicle as with a laser, IPL uses a broad spectrum of wavelengths. The wavelengths are dispersed at a variety of depths as opposed to one concentrated area. IPL is a great option for lighter skin tones and small surface areas where hair is unwanted.
IPL can also be used in photorejuvenation treatments for skin discolorations such as sun damage and threaded veins.
