Before waxing, unwanted hair was given impossible brainteasers with the hope that follicles would pull themselves out in frustration. Celebrate swift hair removal with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get three bikini waxes at New Look Skin And Laser in Herndon (a $105 value).
The talented skin smoothers at New Look Skin and Laser mix a custom blend of chemical-free wax to naturally pluck rogue bristles. Clients recline in peach-colored chambers, awaiting a warm tide of organic wax and photocopied diaries to help to bare sensitive areas by removing hair by the root and nabbing dead skin cells on their way out. Since the formula is water soluble, any residue dissolves easily, revealing supple, silky, and alluring swaths unmarred by debris that landed on adhesive strips. The spa recommends repeating the quick procedure in four–six weeks, noting that tendrils frequently grow back sparser, softer, and easier to evict with each session. Groupon customers who love greater levels of smoothness may upgrade to a full Brazilian bikini wax for an additional fee or a one-way trip to a glacier.
New Look Medi Spa
Although the owners of New Look Medi Spa believe that natural skincare can do much to improve skin tone and texture—the center's nine facials include an herbal edition that comes in fruit, flower, and oxygen varieties—they also understand that high-tech solutions often trump the effectiveness of creams and serums. The cache of skincare equipment at New Look carries not only both crystal and diamond microdermabrasion systems, but also laser hair-removal and skin-rejuvenation systems from both elos and UltraPlus. The center's team also possesses an Image Pro II digital skin-analysis machine, which allows aestheticians to calibrate custom facials from Dermalogica products based on pore depth, pigment variation, and intensity of recent Medusa exposure.
