What You'll Get
Like a persistent suitor, unwanted hair is annoying, clingy, and can only be eliminated with lasers. Terminate intolerable tresses with today's Groupon: for $119, you get three laser hair removal treatments from Gulf Coast Dermatology Centre, located on the Providence Hospital campus. This deal is valid for any one of the following body areas: upper lip (a $375 value), chin (a $450 value), underarm (a $750 value), or bikini line (a $750 value).
Fussy follicles meet their demise with Gulf Coast Dermatology Centre's Lumenis Lightsheer Duet laser hair removal system, which harnesses the jungle-clearing power of lasers inside a sleek handheld device. Skin is drawn into a vacuum that gently pulls the membrane thin, pulling uninvited body fur closer to the laser source and reducing the density of pigment-producing melanocytes. When the laser is activated upon the 22-millimeter by 35-millimeter area area, the slightly stretched skin allows more photons to unleash their fury upon their targets, building up heat that helps destroy follicles and their re-spawning potential in about 15–20 minutes. The procedure's efficient energy delivery system results in a more comfortable procedure, doesn't require topical anesthetics, and is often the envy of local pizza deliverymen for its proficiency. Laser hair removal eliminates follicular hitchhiking for longer than waxing and doesn't cause the typical annoyances associated with shaving, such as razor burns and clingy 5 o'clock shadows.
Groupon users can receive an additional three laser hair removal treatments for $119 if they choose.
