Hair has an annoying habit of growing all over our bodies, which not only looks funny, but also makes it nearly impossible to painlessly remove band-aids or emerge unscathed from a vat of honey.

Mira Indorf, the certified laser specialist of Althea Medspa, zaps away unwanted follicles with FDA-approved intense pulsed light laser technology. During the roughly 30- to 60-minute treatments, the former chemistry instructor harnesses infrared light energy to penetrate the skin's surface, directly confronting follicles for trying to sabotage bikini season and reducing their presence on the body over multiple sessions. A refrigerated tip helps ease the bittersweet discomfort of saying goodbye to follicle frenemies, and the technician's sweeping motions help to eliminate stubborn hairs. Beneficial to most skin types and hair colors, the hair-ravaging technology may result in temporary redness or irritation similar to a mild sunburn. Most patients can return to normal activities immediately following the treatment with the exception of direct sun exposure and tanning with a UV lamp.
Boasting décor chosen with the principles of feng shui in mind, the med spa embraces visitors seven days a week in a soothing aura that leaves clients calmer than a pair of relaxed-fit jeans in a hammock. Though customers may combine two Groupons to procure the recommended six sessions for maximum hair ejection, results may be visible after one or two sessions. Please allow four weeks between treatments.
Althea Medspa is named for the althea flower, or hibiscus, which is well known for its beauty and healing properties. Inside cozy, private rooms, Althea's team upholds the transformative spirit of this flower when boosting clients’ beauty with professional laser services, cosmetic injections, and infrared therapy. A professional designer was hired to outfit Althea Medspa with a tranquil atmosphere, harnessing the calming practices of feng shui and a fountain to soothe visitors and vacationing flying fish.
