  • Anjuthreads
    For the over six years it has been open, the tools of the hair-removal trade have remained simple at Anjuthreads. A bit of baby powder here, some Aveda toner to close pores there. And the most important item in the aestheticians' toolkit: pure cotton thread from India. Thread in hand, one of Anjuthreads' experts twists and rolls over the unwanted hair?gently removing it from the skin like a farmer harvesting the world's tiniest, hairiest crop of corn. This ritual unfolds across the face and neck, with attention paid to the sensitivity of skin.

  • Laser Cosmetica
    It generally takes about six laser treatments to completely banish unwelcome hair, which is why you are conveniently able to combine two Groupons for a total of six sessions on one area. Those who don't want to go completely body bald but just want to thin out and lighten up a particularly hairy situation can simply get fewer sessions than the magic six. Upon your first visit, a clinic director will help set up your individualized treatment regimen to establish the frequency and number of visits necessary to achieve desired results. Use this initial consultation to ask pertinent questions or to swap apple-streusel recipes with your lasersmith.

  • Metro Laser
    A team of doctors and technicians use lasers and other clinical techniques to realize clients' cosmetic goals. They spotlight wrinkles, blemishes, hair, and varicose veins with lasers to whisk such offending particles off of bodies and faces. Waxing, too, fells follicular shrubbery. To slough away materials that cause facial dullness, such as dead skin or a papier-mâché mask worn two years too many, the staff administers peels, facials, and microdermabrasion.

  • Body Restoration
    Forget “classrooms”—Body Restoration’s 75-minute couples massage classes take place on massage tables in private rooms. One person lays on the table, while an instructor gives the other a hands-on lesson in massage techniques, pressure points, and the use of oils and lotions. Halfway through, you’ll switch places. You can assign your own homework.
