Assisted by the FDA-approved CoolGuide laser, the experienced staff at Samaritan Cosmetic Services guides patients carefully through hair-reduction treatments, answering questions and addressing concerns along the way. The CoolGuide supplies each of its long, high-energy beams with fake security clearances to get past the epidermis and access hair roots. Unsuspecting follicles then absorb the laser light, converting it to heat that eliminates them but leaves surrounding cells unharmed. The CoolGuide's pulses affect only hair early in its growing cycle, but six sessions should be enough to deliver hair-free results. Like most shampoos, the CoolGuide is unable to treat blond or white hair.
Even though it's a small change, shaping your eyebrows can alter your appearance instantly. That's why the threading artists at Unique Arch Salon use their years of experience to craft subtle arches that transform and complement faces. They accomplish this without the use of hot wax or forcing clients to go undercover as futuristic super-villains. Instead, they rely upon a single strand of cotton, which they loop around unwanted hairs to remove precise lines of hair at a time. This gives them more control as they define brow arches, or safely remove hair from upper lips, side burns, and chins. Once the staff has created a new look with sculpted brows and fuzz-free faces, they can further makeovers with a range of hair services or their gold herbal facial.
Waxing tech C.C. Curry has been nixing unwanted body fuzz for more than five years. To keep up-to-date on the latest waxing tips and tricks, she regularly travels to shows and seminars, anywhere from LA to NYC to Madrid.

Curious body-scapers can have a free, private, paparazzi-free consultation with Jazmyne prior to waxing. This Groupon can be redeemed over multiple visits, and the appointments can be arranged to fit any schedule.
Bushwackers Waxing Studio owner Debi Botz believes that Brazilian waxes take specialized skill and that not every waxing technician should be performing them. She should know—throughout her 15 years of experience, she has led classes that help others learn how to correctly remove hair from those sensitive areas. This high standard of quality speaks to Botz's overall meticulous, professional approach: she never double-dips. She uses generously thick coats of hard wax on delicate areas to help reduce irritation. And she consults with clients before waxing services to talk about what to expect—especially if it's their first time.
