Like your unemployed younger brother, hair can sometimes show up uninvited and refuse to leave. Today’s Groupon will rid you of stray strands with the services of a hair-removal expert: for $15, you get $32 worth of waxing services at Skin Care & Body Work Day Spa in Sierra Madre, which was ranked among the top-five day spas by CityVoters in 2007, 2008, and 2009.
Skin Care & Body Work Day Spa only uses the gentlest of waxes, a fine-quality, cream-based blend with zinc oxide to reduce discomfort and treat kindly even the most sensitive or prideful skin. Reshape or separate Siamese brows ($18+) or defoliate your upper lip or chin ($12) to clear a smooth surface for better novelty-moustache adhesion. Or just skip the specifics and get a full face of water-wicking skin ($50). Migrate away from the mug and take care of gnarly full arms ($45 each) or a pair of full leggy walking arms ($55 each), and prepare for a day at the beach with a Brazilian ($45). See a full list of waxsations here.
Waxing provides a longer-lasting hairlessness than shaving, and when the hair does come back after a few weeks, it's meek, soft, and easily scared back into the follicle with banging pans or the threat of another round of wax. There is no follicle too wispy or fuzz too peachy to avoid the professional, attentive, and unpretentious waxen maidens at Skin Care & Body Work Day Spa. Like the helpful, immortal staff chants during their pre-day huddle declare, if it has hair, it can be made bare. The careful and pleasant purveyors of slickness will use their years of experience to target overgrowth sprouts and diligently bid them adieu. All of this takes place in an environment of calmness and serenity that will relax every part of your body down to the tips of your hair. Each follicle will loosen its viselike grip of your skin, making it easier to painlessly pluck each strand from its nest.
An appointment is required.
