What You'll Get
Much like the sale of sardines at movie-theater concession stands, the popularity of laser hair-removal treatments is evidence that most people secretly long to be dolphins. Get smooth and sleek with today's deal: for $95, you get three sessions of laser-hair removal and a free consultation (a $525 value) at Helen White Electrologist, Laser & Permanent Makeup in the Gulfway Shopping Center on South Padre Island Drive. Home to laser hair removal specialists certified by the Society of Clinical and Medical Hair Removal, Helen White's experts perform a suite of permanent beautifying services in a comfortable atmosphere. A consultation helps the specialists coordinate their services with the patient's needs and credit score; then, in the removal session, the laser maestros carefully aim their beams to safely and efficiently de-fuzz larger skin areas such as the legs, back, underarm, or bikini line. As it may take an average of six sessions to complete a selected area, guests can purchase up to two Groupons to ensure eternal independence from corrupt hair dynasties. Laser hair removal is only effective on darker hues, so blondes, grays, and redheads can explore Helen White's other methods of hair removal, such as electrolysis.

About Helen White Electrologists
Though high-tech hair removal relies on relatively new technologies, owner Nedra Lockhart has been zapping follicles for more than 40 years—she began in 1970, working at the side of her mother, for whom the clinic is named. Though electrolysis is still on the menu, the entire staff boasts national board certification in laser hair removal through The Society for Clinical and Medical Hair Removal, Inc. This range of treatment options is essential, as specialists must select the right tool for the job: though considered less painful, lasers target melanin and may not be ideal for those with lighter-colored strands, who may be better served by electrolysis or Photoshop. Besides permanent hair removal, the clinic is home to Scandinavian skincare services by stateside transplant Catharina and mani-pedis by aesthetician Lisa Schuenemann.
