What You'll Get
If comic books have taught us anything, it's that getting zapped with mysterious rays always gives you crime-fighting abilities—in this case, superhuman smoothness. Let your skin fulfill its dream of pummeling two-bit hoodlums with today's Groupon: for $99, you get your choice of a 30-minute laser treatment for leg or facial vessels (up to a $450 value) or $200 toward a gift certificate or any available service at Pulse Laser and Skincare Center, located on Lexington Avenue at Thirty-Second Street.
Pulse is a state-of-the-art boutique spa that specializes in caring for people with skin. Sessions at Pulse are administered by NYS-certified aesthetic-laser specialists and are held inside private rooms. Using a GentleYag VR hand piece with a patented, dynamic-cooling device, laser treatment delivers a pulse of light to the veins, which is absorbed by the lining of the blood and vessels. Over a period of four to six weeks, the blood coagulates and dissolves the vexing vein without damaging any well-behaved tissue nearby. Patients will feel a slight tingling sensation, which means that the blood vessels have had their legs crossed too long.
Pulse wants to ensure that patients receive thorough, personal care, so they also offer complimentary consultations before treatments and postlaser follow-ups to check the progress of their blood-vessel invisibility rays. If the laser treatment doesn't apply to your specific needs, this Groupon can be redeemed for $200 toward a gift certificate or any other available service, including chemical peels, laser hair removal, or combination packages.

Yelpers give Pulse Laser and Skincare Center a five-star average:
- Kudos for Pulse!...She fully explained the procedure to me including the risks and went out of her way to comfort me. And, she was astonishingly careful and meticulous with the laser and literally didn't stop until she was satisfied that she'd zapped everything. – Jenniffer Z.
- Very down to earth, but knowledgeable. Their place is clean, always important. And I didn't feel pressured into anything or like I was getting a sales pitch. I also got a follow up call the next day to see if everything was satisfactory. Nice! – Banana B.

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.
