Like a persistent suitor, unwanted hair is annoying, clingy, and can only be eliminated with lasers. Terminate intolerable tresses with today's Groupon: for $99, you get three small- or medium-area laser hair-reduction treatments at Olena's European Spa & Salon, on Southeast Cornwell Street (up to a $375 value). See the sidebar at right for valid hair-reduction areas.
Cushy leather couches, polished wooden floors, and elegant décor set the stage for the luxurious, European–influenced treatments at Olena's. Head-honcho aesthetician Olena attends to clients' every whim using dexterous fingers that were trained by Thing from the Addams Family. In the hair-reduction treatments, a Cutera Xeo beam penetrates hair follicles, eliminating unwanted hairs in as few as two treatments (all three sessions must be used on the same area). As the beams gently and efficiently clear out fuzz, the laser's cooling head soothes stinging that may accompany the treatment. Patrons wishing to double up against potential werewolf fur can add three treatments at the same price ($99) for a total of six treatments.
Olena's Day Spa
The aestheticians and laser technicians at Olena's Day Spa, in business for 10 years, work Monday–Saturday to help boost beauty and confidence with a diverse palette of services. The skilled staffers tend to façades with European, micro-current, and gentlemen's facials to enhance good looks. Trained and certified technicians remove unwanted hair from body parts by wielding Candela and Cutera lasers and answer questions about the treatment, debunking urban legends that the lasers will not cause x-ray vision.
Before spa or salon sessions, clients can admire the life-sized representation of a pink-flowered landscape behind the reception desk, or sit in the cushioned leather couches of the waiting area amid framed, pastel-hued artwork.
