Like learning the difference between right and wrong or mistaking mosquito larvae for macaroni, body hair functions best as a distant memory. Bid adieu to the past with today's Groupon at Shape Med USA in Hinsdale. Choose between the following options:
- For $160, you get six laser hair-reduction treatments (up to a $1,200 value)
- For $60, you get a microdermabrasion or chemical peel (a $150 value)
Shape Med USA's team of surgeons, dietitians, and aestheticians work cohesively to metamorphose outward appearances and improve overall wellness. Vaporize invasive hair species through laser hair reduction, which uses the pulsed wavelengths and crafty interrogation tactics of Alma lasers to gain the trust of follicles before eviscerating them beyond furry regrowth. With six 30-minute sessions, one heretofore hirsute bikini, underarm, lip, or chin region will be rendered smoother and smoother, until achieving the silky texture of Barry White's pet dolphin. The process permanently reduces unwanted hair and is one of the most painless ways to remove extraneous strands. Shape Med’s docs recommend avoiding tanning for one week before and after the treatment. Guests should arrive with their to-be-lasered area freshly shaven (a $25 shaving fee applies and is not covered by this Groupon).
Set skin aglow with a 45-minute microdermabrasion treatment, which radiates the skeletal sack by sloughing dead cells and markered mustaches from the top layer of skin. A 45-minute chemical peel dives deeper into the depths of dermal layers to provide mild-to-medium exfoliation and smoothes the texture of the visage. Microdermabrasion downtime is limited to 24 hours of mild redness, and chemical-peel downtime, like a lick-per-minute Tootsie Pop, may last from one to five days.
