Many people don't know they have too much body hair until an anti-fur activist throws paint on them. Avoid a colorful catastrophe with today's Groupon to Skin Alive in Mequon. Two options available:
• For $149, you get six laser hair-removal treatments for the upper lip, chin, cheeks, back of the neck, sideburns or both underarms (a $600 value).
• For $199, you get six basic bikini-line laser hair-removal treatments (a $1,050 value).
The aestheticians at Skin Alive use a Gemini medical-grade 1064 Yag laser to reduce the appearance of unwanted fuzz over the course of laser hair-removal sessions. Pulses of concentrated light can smooth out a piece of the facial puzzle, such as the upper lip, chin, or cheeks, or defoliate a pair of damp underarms to reduce embarrassment when waving to friends or dancing the YMCA. Alternatively, bikini-line treatments dispose of downstairs fuzz that might interfere with swimsuit-wearing activities, such as challenging octopi to games of eight-on-one underwater tennis.
Skin Alive merges its beauty expertise with that of the Mequon Thiensville School of Esthetics to form a single, in-depth center to cater to the study and practice of physiology and skin conditions. Medically trained laser technicians suggest patients shave the day before treatment, avoid tanning, and make amends with soon-departing mustaches. Today's Groupon includes half off additional laser hair-removal treatments.
Skin Alive and its aesthetician school, Mequon Thiensville School of Esthetics, are devoted to the study and practice of skincare. Clients can choose to visit the hands-on student-learning center for aesthetic services performed by students under instructor supervision, or head to the Skin Alive spa for services performed by a licensed professional. Both offer basic beauty services, such as facials, peels, and waxing, but the licensed aestheticians at Skin Alive can also slough off dead skin cells with diamond-tip microdermabrasion, rejuvenate skin with lasers, and vanquish unwelcome hair with laser hair-removal treatments that leave skin smoother than a cue ball smothered in olive oil.
