Light is actually a spectrum of colors, each with its own healing properties—red tackles wrinkles, blue zaps blemishes, and indigo tries to convince everyone it's a real color. Get illuminated with today's laser-light Groupon: for $149, you get three laser hair-removal treatments at Brentwood Laser & Aesthetics in Brentwood (a $321 value).
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rex Moulton-Barrett and his staff of hair whisperers use Sciton laser beams to smooth bewhiskered skins. In three sessions of small-area laser hair removal (a $107/treatment value), the laser's pulsating light heats the inside of hair follicles until their own melanin destroys them, much as lion tamers are destroyed by their own love of practical jokes. Small areas eligible for liberation from follicle tyranny include the chin, eyebrows and forehead, underarms, sideburns, back of the neck, upper lip, and standard bikini line.
The procedure involves only minimal pain and the mild heart-sickness felt whenever facial-hair companions leave your side. Results of the three sessions last longer than traditional shaving methods, leaving former stubble-watchers more time to organize their tin soldier collections by rank.
