Much like the sale of sardines at movie-theater concession stands, the popularity of laser hair-reduction treatments is evidence that most people secretly long to be dolphins. Get smooth and sleek with today's Groupon: for $185, you get three LightSheer Duet laser hair reduction treatments from Belle Vie MedSpa (up to a $1,050 value). With this Groupon, Belle Vie MedSpa will reduce fuzz from the upper lip (a $450 value), chin (a $450 value), sideburns (a $600 value), front or back of neck (a $600 value), underarms (a $675 value), bikini line (a $600 value), feet (value based on consultation), old fruit, hands (value based on consultation), abdomen trail (a $750 value), and lower legs (a $1,050 value).
Belle Vie's intensively trained staff of RNs and nurse-practitioners strive to reduce clients' unwanted hair using the Lumenis LightSheer Duet, a laser designed to work at high speeds and with minimal discomfort. Following a free consultation, a technician will aim the LightSheer Duet's short pulses of highly concentrated luminescence to targeted areas using vacuum-assist technology, which allows the light to better penetrate the follicle and clearly navigate around treasured temporary tattoos. As individual hair strands absorb the device's large 22-millimeter by 35-millimeter beams, hair shafts and bulbs become damaged, scuttling hair saplings' hopes of re-growth and possibly reducing their appearance after three treatments, though six treatments are recommended for hair reduction. Due to the machine's large spot-size and vacuum-assist technology, each treatment only takes about 20 minutes and usually feels no more intense than a rubber-band snap, thus requiring no topical anesthetics, application gels, or Baby Mozart. It also has LightSheer ET with contact cooling for fur zapping on smaller treatment areas. For more on the treatment, see Belle Vie's laser hair-removal patient information form.
Belle Vie MedSpa
Belle Vie MedSpa's staff includes a nurse practitioner, and registered nurses who all work alongside a handful of licensed aestheticians, massage therapists, and skincare specialists to pamper clients with FDA-approved spa treatments. The highly trained team harnesses tools ranging from Botox injections to hair-razing lasers and may recommend products by Obagi and SkinCeuticals for at-home maintenance.
Specialties include vibradermabrasion, which uses stainless-steel paddles instead of the potentially irritating particles used in traditional microdermabrasion treatments. As they smooth skin, the textured paddles also send a vibrating sensation through the body that many clients find relaxing and many Beach Boys find inspirational. When not making the world beautiful one face at a time, the team at Belle Vie MedSpa puts the focus on building a better community, sponsoring a number of charities, including God's Pantry Food Bank, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, and The Nest Center for Women, Children & Families.
