Anniston's Dr. Stacy Haynes leads a staff into battle against spider veins. The treatment calls upon the services of the gentle Vbeam laser, which scares away spider veins in the nose ($200), ears ($225), chin ($250), cheeks ($325), forehead ($400), and neck ($500) with bursts of yellow light. In the three to six weeks between your treatments, veins are reabsorbed into the skin, leaving your epidermis looking as smooth as an ice rink that was sanded with fine-grit sandpaper.
The board-certified dermatologists at Brookwood Dermatology diagnose epidermal issues during one-on-one consultations and then set out to maximize skin's natural beauty with custom-tailored treatments. Specialties range from injections of Botox or Restylane to the removal of moles or warts. Chemical peels and laser beams resurface skin cells, unearthing a more youthful, radiant appearance.

European Body Wrap boasts a bevy of advanced medspa treatments to sculpt and smooth bone abodes.

Post-treatment, clients can steam, shower, and smoke-machine away any wrap remnants for better views of their newly slimmed skins. This Groupon is also valid at European Body Wrap's upcoming locations in Lithonia and Peachtree City.
If you speak Portuguese, you can quickly guess what Cabelo Studio 1 is all about. Cabelo, after all, translates to “hair” in Portugese, and hair is what the salon staff does best. The team offers a variety of haircare services to bring out client’s natural beauty, from quick and simple cuts to highlights, color treatments, chemical relaxers, and perms. Additionally, the staff offers specialty services such as an intensive deep conditioning treatment for particularly dry or damaged locks. Sewn-in, track braidless, and full-bond extensions, meanwhile, add floor-sweeping length to short ‘dos and strands that refuse to grow for fear of attracting a prince known for climbing long locks.
Although human hair may look smooth, each strand's outer layer—the cuticle—is actually quite rough. Under dry conditions, the tiny scales that cover its surface become raised and brittle, causing hairs to tangle and lose their shine. Conditioner aims to correct this problem by bonding a particular class of molecules—called cationic surfactants—to the cuticle. This is possible because keratin, the protein that makes up most of the hair shaft, bristles with negative ions, which attract the positively charged surfactants, coating each thread in a thin film that weighs it down and reduces frizz. (The negative charge of keratin is also what causes static whenever positive ions are stripped from the hair—the static that makes it possible to stick a balloon to the wall or to power a miner's headlamp.)
The other ingredients in conditioner don't always need ions to do their jobs well. Humectants suck in water from the surrounding air, thereby moisturizing the hair, and oils simply penetrate the cuticle. Glossers coat the hair with light-reflecting polymers, increasing shine, whereas other ingredients raise the acidity level of the conditioner, which helps protect the hair's protein structure.
