Removing undesirable body hair usually involves painful instruments, such as scalding hot wax, sharp tweezers, or moving escalators. Enjoy a less uncomfortable way to rid body fuzz with today's Groupon: for $99, you get three laser hair-removal treatments for the upper lip, chin, underarm, or bikini line at the Renaissance Center for Cosmetic Renewal (up to an $825 value).
Led by Dr. Lewis Obi, the Renaissance Center's professional bristle-banishers wield the cutting-edge LuxR laser system to expunge unwanted hair from bodily surfaces. During treatment, one of these friendly staffers besieges the targeted surface with gentle pulses of light designed to eliminate or greatly reduce follicular foes on all skin types, which may range from suntanned parchment to pale epidermises sewn together with hand-me-down bed sheets. Though 6–8 treatments are typically required to achieve desired results, this Groupon gets you started on your path to bodily smoothness. Patients may experience mild discomfort during the process, similar to receiving a sting from a boxer or an insult from a bee, and affected areas may emulate rose-colored glasses for 24 hours.
