Alpine proprietor and registered nurse Sandy Pelton blasts follicles to smithereens using a Candela GentleLase laser. At the first session, which lasts around 60 minutes, patients consult with Sandy to determine the appropriate laser hair-removal treatment plan. Next, Sandy unleashes a cool laser's pulsed energy directly onto the fuzzy patch, rooting out body fringe down at the follicle level. Each of the following sessions lasts about 30–45 minutes, or the time it takes to appreciate all the nuances of a Calvin and Hobbes strip. The full $600 Groupon value can be applied toward evicting hair from larger body areas, such as a full bikini (top and sides; $900/six treatments), upper or lower legs ($1,012/six treatments), or full men's back ($1,800/six treatments).
