Medical aesthetics specialist Lisa Mangrum brings almost 20 years of experience and an arsenal of advanced technology to her med spa. Peels, photofacials, and microdermabrasions work together to refresh complexions, and a quartet of carefully calibrated lasers lets staff adapt hair-removal treatments to different skin and hair types. Injectables, such as Botox, aim to smooth out facial contours, and permanent makeup leaves mugs photo-ready, even when doused in Gatorade after a spelling-bee win.
Dr. Pradeep K. Sinha leads a well-rounded team of beauty-boosters in gently banishing unwanted body fur. The LightSheer XC Diode laser is safe for all skin types and hair colors, and it includes a handheld cooling device to keep clients comfortable and unintimidating to ice cream. During each hair-removal session, the high-tech gadget shines long pulses of brightness down on pesky fuzzies, which have been afraid of the spotlight ever since forgetting lines in their high school's production of Oklahoma. Once hairs stop quaking in their roots, they evacuate the body, leaving smooth skin behind as a parting gift.
• For $5, you get an eyebrow wax (a $10 value). • For $17, you get a Brazilian wax (a $35 value). Spa maven Shannon White artfully evicts unwanted body hair amid the private, recently renovated confines of Coco Beleza Wax Studio. Wielding hard wax—a less painful alternative to liquid wax and paper strips—Shannon quickly clears stubborn stubble from most clients in 15 minutes or less. The eyebrow wax clears stray follicles from the forehead, sculpting eye adornments into neat arcs or radical lightning bolts. Meanwhile, the Brazilian sheds unfriendly fuzz with full hair removal in the nether regions. Both services render skin as smooth and brilliant as Aristotle's velvet bathrobe, and Brazilianed bits normally stay bare for up to four weeks.
Like your unemployed former guidance counselor, hair can sometimes show up uninvited and refuse to leave. Today’s Groupon will rid you of stray strands with the services of a hair-removal expert. For $25, you’ll get $55 worth of waxing services for men or women from the aptly named WAX, located in the heart of Inman Park. Ben took a few steps back and observed his finished creation in its translucent, static glory. It was a golem of wax, misshapen and unpracticed, but firmly planted on its feet and unmistakably humanoid. Its eyes were hollow concaves, molded by an old billiard ball he kept for luck. Its mouth was a slit from a pizza cutter. Satisfied, he unrolled the ancient calfskin the old hermit gave him, and began to read aloud the spell of life. That redheaded ox Brendan Proshetti was sure going to be sorry at recess tomorrow. Everything was finally about to go right.
