Skin Therapy Center's Dr. Zeyi Chen draws upon years spent as chairman and chief dermatologist of the Dermatology Department at Shanghai Medical University to buff away bristle and leave skin seductively smooth. Hair-removal sessions utilize the table-model TF-2000 laser to purge unwanted fur from nearby kiwifruit or any area of the body. Clients lie comfortably as a clinician passes the device over target areas, sending out focused pulses of energy that absorb into the melanin in the hair follicles, heating them up to permanently destroy the root and inhibit regrowth. Hair removal takes roughly one hour, depending on the size of the area and how tightly the hair is braided. Six treatments are typically recommended for long-lasting hair hindrance, so Groupon holders may opt to purchase two Groupons and redeem them both for a single area.

In each of their three 20–30-minute sessions, customers are evenly coated in a DHA dye for streak-free, nonsticky results, masking cellulite, varicose veins, and skin discolorations. Epidermal artists tailor each tan according to customer's personal color aspirations, be it brown, light tan, or paisley.
Even after gaining more than a decade of beauty-industry experience in cities such as New York, LA, and Miami and training with brands such as MAC, Estée Lauder, and Dermalogica, Sebastian Culpepper was still missing one thing: his family. Seeking the familiar comfort—and relative quiet—of home, Sebastian moved back to his native Charleston and channeled his passion for aesthetics into a new venture, The iLash Studio. There, he augments lash lines with Xtreme Lashes extensions, applying them individually at the corners for a cat-eye look or across the lash line for a lush, doe-eyed appearance. Neutralizing the need for eye enhancements such as mascara or eyeliner, the extensions are also easily replenished when they naturally begin to fall out after several weeks.
