Like a boomerang thrown by a vengeful ghost on a carousel, unwanted hair tends to return. Stop the cycle with today's Groupon to Pamela's Electrolysis in East Aurora. Choose between the following options:
• For $10, you get an eyebrow wax (a $20 value).
• For $79, you get three 30-minute electrolysis treatments (a $165 value).
For more than 20 years, the follicle-trouncing technicians at Pamela's Electrolysis have freed faces from unwanted hair with methods ranging from the time-tested to the cutting-edge. An eyebrow wax sets bushy brows atremble at the sight of the groomer's gentle but efficient hands. After consulting the client and crafting a scale model of the brows-to-be, staff select a skin- and hair-appropriate wax to suck up stray strands, choosing from organic soy, milk and honey, or lavender aromatherapy mixtures. At the end of the 15- to 30-minute session, cooling essential oil soothes skin and minimizes irritation once the wax's work is done.
Alternatively, electrolysis sessions precisely target hairs on a small facial area of your choice, relieving straggling sideburns or overburdened upper lips. Each 30-minute treatment sends carefully calibrated pulses of high-frequency energy down the tip of a wand to heat and cauterize each expendable follicle, aiming to leave skin as smooth as a butter salesman's spiel.
