What You'll Get
Nothing lasts forever, which is why acne can be removed and the earth has its expiration date printed on the floor of the ocean. Wash away dermal indignations with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $175 for one Smoothbeam acne-reduction treatment (a $395 value)
- $299 for two Smoothbeam acne-reduction treatments (a $790 value)
During the treatments, techs marshal the healing power of laser light to warm up the lower layer of skin, stimulating collagen production and shrinking the sebaceous gland to reduce oil production, while killing the bacteria that cause acne in the first place. The laser also smoothes wrinkles and reduces the appearance of acne scars.
Treatments take about 20 minutes and result in no downtime, but Pulse Laser and Skincare Center strongly recommends the use of an anesthetic numbing cream for 45 minutes to one hour beforehand to minimize discomfort. Clients may use their own numbing cream or purchase it at the office for an additional fee. Use of topical antibiotics and prescription creams must be discontinued seven days prior to treatment; use of oral antibiotics must be discontinued 14 days prior to treatment.

About Pulse Laser and Skincare Center
Working from their sole location at 149 Madison Avenue and unaffiliated with any other laser center or beauty lounge, owners Kimberly Schanzer and Michelle Moyer and their team of technicians have earned a top spot on Yelp's Best of list for hair removal in New York, and they've even been cited as experts on YouBeauty, a website co-founded by TV's Dr. Oz. The beauty experts are not only licensed aestheticians and certified cosmetic laser technicians, but also certified laser-safety officers. Coming from a variety of backgrounds, the women utilize their wide range of skills to make each client's visit to the boutique-style space personal and comfortable. The team has chosen some of the most advanced laser hair-removal technology available—Candela's GentleLASE, GentleLASE Pro, and GentleYAG lasers—which they can use on light or dark skin. They also diminish acne and deep wrinkles with Candela's Smoothbeam laser.
Editor of American Spa Magazine Heather Mikesell tried out the center's Candela GentleLASE procedure. She said, "Although I’ve had my share of laser hair-removal sessions, I have to say this was one of the most hassle-free." Mikesell appreciated the system's ability to treat a large body area and its patented cooling mechanism, which relieves discomfort better than a blanket sewn from strings of frozen peas. Pulse Laser and Skincare Center has also received accolades from a variety of other press.
