A laser is a like a zamboni for your face, buffing you smooth for a pick-up hockey match. Get glossy for game time with today's Groupon to DC Derm Docs, located near the Farragut North Red Line station in the heart of downtown. Choose between the following two options:
- For $99, you get three laser hair-removal treatments. The three treatments can be used to clear the underarms (a $540 value for three treatments), chin ($360), lip ($300), bikini area ($600; one inch in both directions), or back of the neck ($480).
- For $100, you get one photorejuvenation facial (a $300 value).
DC Derm Docs is a welcoming environment for faces and fleshes of all shapes, sizes, colors, and species. The facility's laser hair removal clears your estate of unwanted underbrush with a high-speed Lumenis Lightsheer DUET laser, which cuts treatment time by 75%, potentially minimizing the need for topical anesthesia and allowing for fewer treatments. A vacuum-assist stretches the skin to make it easier for the laser to reach each hair's roots, and then uses suction to remove the dearly departed follicles and halt future growth. Though darker skin types can be treated, up to (or more than) six treatments may be required.
Alternatively, revitalize a visage with an IPL photorejuvenation facial. The treatment bathes skin in a series of intense pulsed lights that can stimulate the production of collagen, softening the skin and imbuing it with an even glow. IPL photorejuvenation has been known to help Photoshop away a variety of skin imperfections, including rosacea, spider veins, age spots, acne scars, the sun's love bites, circles under the eyes, and fine lines. Doctors Dale Isaacson and Marilyn Berzin will oversee either treatment and will help clients choose the best way to space them out.
Treatments are more effective on the dark-haired and light-skinned. Light red, blonde, gray and white hairs cannot be treated. Those with darker skin may require more than six treatments to achieve their desired results.
DC Derm Docs has been featured in the press for questions regarding epidermal health and beauty. Doctors Isaacson and Berzin have appeared on CBS News, FOX News Channel, and the Today Show, and in the pages of SELF, Where magazine and Washingtonian, among others.
