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 $99, you get six laser hair-removal sessions at Family Doctors of Vicksburg (up to a $1,050 value). This Groupon is valid for six sessions for one of the following treatment areas: underarms, abdomen trail, bikini line, brazilian and full bikini, brow, nose, ears, toes, chin, back of neck, full face, lip, or lip and chin.
Family Doctors of Vicksburg’s skilled and licensed RNs zap follicles with an FDA-certified pulse light system to evict unwanted hair from the face and body. The hair-removal process employs Palomar hair hand-pieces, which emit targeted pulses of light. The process generates heat to permanently disable the cells responsible for new growth, which can eliminate all hair from a particular area in as few as six sessions. Treatments range from 10 to 20 minutes each—just enough time to brainstorm how to strategically alter outfits to show off newly smooth body parts. Clients can opt for everything from an upper lip treatment (a $210 value) or an underarm treatment (a $300 value) to a full Brazilian treatment (a $1,050 value). Following each appointment, you can expect a mild sunburn-like sensation, which typically dissipates in less than a day and may be soothed with cold gel or by hugging a yeti.
The pulse light system doesn't require clients to grow unwanted hair out prior to the procedure, unlike waxing, plucking, and electrolysis. Before starting the process, you can continue any hair-removal method that leaves the hair root intact, including shaving, depilatory creams, and packs of grazing goats, but you should avoid unprotected sun exposure and tanning creams for four weeks prior to the treatment.
Family Doctors of Vicksburg
The four primary-care physicians and family nurse practitioner at Family Doctors of Vicksburg carry on a tradition of compassionate health care that has been thriving for more than 100 years. In 2006, the office expanded its offerings to include the services of registered nurse Darla. Since September of that year, Darla has been administering treatments that include Intense Pulsed Light and laser skin treatments five days a week.
Clients can await their chemical peel, Botox injections, or laser hair-removal sessions in the skincare center's "serenity room." There, guests lounge on the amply cushioned sofa, listening to the sounds of nature and testing out medical-grade moisturizing cream on the leaves of several nearby plants.
