What You'll Get
Though its primary purpose remains disrupting college lectures and movie screenings, laser light has also proven useful in the precise removal of human hair. Today's smooth-making Groupon lets you reap the benefits of America's favorite repurposed supervillain weapon: for $119, you get three laser hair-reduction treatments (up to a $675 value) at Profiles Laser & Medical Aesthetics, a beauty-enhancing spa in Hendersonville. Up to six sessions may be necessary for optimum results, and you can buy two Groupons as long as the sessions are used within one year.
The professional lights emitters at Profiles Laser & Medical Aesthetics use Cutera technology, which is effective in reducing hair growth in all skin colors and types, including recently tanned skin. During your three treatments, your certified laser technician will target and detonate the hair follicles in your choice of the following fuzzy locations—upper lip ($120 for one treatment), chin ($120), ears ($100), neck ($200), underarm ($200 per underarm), or bikini-line area ($225). Three treatments may be enough to remove most traces of light hair and to safely distance customers from giant hair-attracting magnets, but for longer-lasting results, or the more intensive laser hair-addition procedure, Profiles Laser recommends six treatments.

About Profiles Laser & Medical Aesthetics
Registered nurse Lisa Grissim opened Profiles Laser & Medical Aesthetics to improve the health and look of the body’s largest and most visible organ: the skin. She recruited Dr. Thomas Miller to supervise the staff, which includes fellow registered nurses and licensed aestheticians. The crew’s intense focus on skin treatments—which range from anti-aging laser treatments to Botox injections—grants them a degree of expertise they use to help customers understand their skincare options. Staffers unpack technical terms and lend personalized advice to steer clients toward ideal treatments. Lisa explains, “We want to form lasting relationships with clients and rejoice with them as they experience the changes they desire.”
Though it has the staff, state-of-the-art laser equipment, and immortality serums of an advanced med-spa, the office sets itself apart with an upscale, salon-like atmosphere. Sun floods the lobby, where bunches of flowers and potted plants add an organic element to the modern décor. Shelves line up some of the world’s premiere skincare lines, including Obagi, Avène, and SkinCeuticals.
