From Our Editors
After beaming away its first hair follicle in 2008, Bella Vita Medspa has grown to accommodate new technology as well as a client base that swelled from 3 to more than 1,000. Technicians rely on the Candela GentleLase laser system during hair-removal treatments to bombard unwanted stubble with pulses of laser light energy. These safe rays heat the follicles and prevent damaged hairs from regrowing after they fall out. Some patients claim that each pulse causes a sensation that feels like a snapping rubber band, while others don't feel anything. The laser system's dynamic cooling device soothes the skin with measured puffs of cryogen to minimize discomfort, and the staff adapts treatments to fit individual needs. For optimal results, the technicians typically advise clients to schedule six to eight appointments and avoid the Baskerville estate after sundown. The medspa is open six days a week.
