Just as weeds will repeatedly re-grow until their roots are pulled out, so too will hairs re-grow until the tiny farmers that live under the skin have been incinerated by a laser. Vanquish follicles at their source with today's Groupon: for $269, you get one year of laser hair removal on three small areas or one large area at Alternative Medi-Spa, redeemable at two locations in Oakbrook and Lyons (up to a $4,438.80 value). See here for valid treatment areas.
Alternative Medi-Spa's on-staff physician and experienced laser technicians effectively reduce unwanted hair with FDA-approved Cutera laser treatments. Laser mages begin each 20-minute procedure by shaving the treatment area and determining skin tone. After a cool gel application, the specialized Cutera wand passes over fuzz fields, zapping each bristle with a swift burst of light and heat to obliterate the offending follicle and prevent it from growing back. Customers return every six weeks as hair passes through natural phases of growth, allowing each newly blossomed strand sapling to take in a single glimpse of daylight before facing a sudden laser attack, much like the action sequence famously deleted from Fantasia.
Fine lines soften and dissipate, wrinkles unravel and melt away, and body hair surrenders its bristly hold on the arms and legs inside of Alternative Medi-Spa. Founded and led by Daniel Rostein, MD, this medical spa staffs licensed aestheticians and laser technicians who specialize in helping clients look younger and feel more confident. The comfortable spa setting does as much to relax guests as the state-of-the-art technology does to embellish their most upfront features: SilkPeel machines, for instance, exfoliate with diamond heads that infuse the skin with vitamins and antioxidants in an exchange for toxins, which are sucked away by closed loop vacuums. IPL photogenesis treatments rely on pulsed lights to minimize fine lines and rosacea, and Cutera lasers perform skin-rejuvenation facials and remove unwanted hair from upper lips, arms, legs, and self-conscious kiwi fruits. The staff also offers facials for men and women, as well as peels and Botox cosmetic injections.
