Be Smooth’s cosmetic fixers keep skin fur-free with gel-based hair-removal services and figures trim with cellulite-busting Body VIP treatments. After nixing rogue hairs with targeted wax treatments, Be Smooth’s aestheticians extend smoothness with optional Depilar system treatments. Applied to skin landscape, Depilar’s enzyme-based formula infiltrates empty follicles and disintegrates the cells responsible for hair growth, eliminating overgrown patches in conjunction with tweezing and court-issued eviction notices. The service also decreases regrowth time, hampering hair’s attempts to sprout new armies.
Smooth away unrequested dimples with cellulite-eradicating Body VIP treatments. Powered by infrared pads that stimulate deep-seated muscles, each treatment targets circulation and kick-starts the metabolic activity in the stomach, legs, or buttocks. The 45-minute service includes a health style consultation and BMI measurement, which gauges health more precisely than performing water-displacement tests alongside a mannequin.

As an aesthetician with more than 20 years of experience and a former chemist with Christian Dior, Helene Lawless knows a thing or two about skincare. The French native opened Be Smooth after growing tired of lengthy spa visits that left a dent in her own wallet. She decided to offer affordable treatments with products and equipment that she has found to be effective over her years as an aesthetician and spa-goer. As a result, she and her team nourish skin using the with organic plant extracts in the Pevonia Botanica line, natural Nuxe products, and Shea Terra Organics with fair-trade shea butters and argan oils. Lawless has also tracked down innovative aesthetic techniques such as VIP Complex's infrared and microcurrent treatments, IPL photofacials with light heat energy (LHE), and hair removal with the gel-based Depilar System.
Lawless prides herself not only on the budget-friendliness of her services, but also on the unintimidating “non-spa” ambience of her beauty haven. Guests relax at a white-on-white facial bar for a deep cleansing, and a boutique area offers European-style gifts such as fragrant Aquiesse soy candles and jewelry by Miravidi and Caracol. According to a 2011 article in the Oregonian, "even the music that can be heard from the front door is French." Just as charming is Lawless' French accent, which, like a lullaby sung by a lemur, is both soothing and exotic.
