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.
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. She and her highly trained staff only use top-of-the-line wax that is low temperature, hypoallergenic, and completely fragrance free.
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.
