The beauty-obsessed aristocrats of ages past spent most of their fortunes trying to remove hair, sitting for hours in plucking rooms while wearing good-luck amulets etched with naked mole rats. Ward off wayward strands with today's Groupon: for $150, you get three laser hair-removal sessions at Dare to Be Bare in Eastchester (up to a $900 value).
Voted 2009's Best Laser Hair Removal by Westchester Magazine, Dare to Be Bare employs advanced laser hair-removal technology and a friendly laserside manner to set skin free from excess fuzz. Dare to Be Bare's owners wield decades of experience to let the natural beauty of the bikini line, chin, neck, nipple, sideburns, stomach, underarm, or upper lip shine forth in swimwear or a three-piece fishnet suit. After an in-depth consultation, one of the licensed aestheticians will accordingly calibrate the LightSheer Diode Laser System, which targets brief pulses of laser light at unwanted follicles while a cooling system keeps skin from overheating in excitement at its new look. During the shedding process, guests can watch a favorite television show or nature documentary to feel superior to other mammalia, and a soothing postprocedure lotion keeps minds off recently pruned areas. For the most dramatic results, Dare to Be Bare recommends combining two Groupons, and will reward such souls by inviting them back into the warm, relaxing salon space for a free touchup session.
Dare to be Bare
Owners and licensed aestheticians Sandra Cossa-Ortiz and Colleen McMahon tend to all of Dare to be Bare's clients, and the pair has garnered praise from Westchester Magazine for their warm personalities and thorough attention to detail. By incorporating ultrasonic vibrations into their treatments, they promote vitamin absorption, encourage collagen regeneration, and reduce wrinkles caused by frowning or impersonating a raisin. They also pamper skin surfaces with facials, diamond microdermabrasion, and laser hair removal. For clients inclined to more traditional hair-removal methods, Sandra and Colleen liberate hirsute patches using a lavender-chamomile-blended wax that lends skin a flower's smoothness and attractiveness to butterflies.
