What You'll Get
Hair is like detailed knowledge of X-Files plotlines—though extremely useful, revealing too much of it in the wrong place can sink your social life. Today's Groupon abducts rogue hairs with technology invented by a shadowy group of elites known only as the Syndicate: for $150, you get six laser hair-removal treatments for a single area of your choice (up to a $900 value) at Chicago Skin Solutions. Use your Groupon for any of the following areas: underarm, regular bikini, upper lip, chin, or men's hairline (front or back). You may purchase up to three Groupons, but you must use each for a different hair area.
Dr. Bradley Hulten, MD, and his highly trained staff members halt the human factory's hair-production assembly line with the Intense Pulse Light of the Palomar Starlux System. A long-pulse, high-energy laser emits a gentle beam of light that harmlessly passes through the skin and directly targets follicles, effectively treating unwanted hair. Unlike the lasers utilized by popular film hero and 2010 California gubernatorial hopeful Iron Man, these friendly beams are easy and comfortable and treat hair follicles faster than other methods. Each treatment is conducted by Chicago Skin Solutions' certified laser technicians, who have each wielded beams for more than four years and received over 60 hours of training and zero-gravity space-flight simulations. Small areas such as the upper lip, chin, bikini area, and underarms can be treated in as little as 15 minutes, also known as one standard metric Warhol.
Because hair grows in cycles and lasers can only vaporize follicular armies on active duty (in accordance with the Geneva Convention), four to six treatments are typically necessary to flush out the majority of hair hideouts during their active growth stages. By the end of the allotment of treatments at Chicago Skin Solutions, patients can expect to see an 80%–90% long-term hair reduction in the hairea being treated. After each treatment, your skin may be slightly red and sensitive, so try to put up with its constant requests to snuggle and watch romantic comedies.
Clients must fill out the medical-history form from the website before the appointment. Cancellations must be made at least 24 hours in advance.
