Excess body hairs can be wildly impractical, becoming unneeded drain stoppers for the shower, uncomfortable armpit warmers on the beach, and unsavory scouring pads for hard-to-clean places on the dog. Eschew absurd epidermal accessories with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get three laser hair-removal treatments on the upper lip, chin, underarms, or bikini area at Skin Cosmetic Dermatology of Georgetown (a $1,050 value).
Helmed by the nationally recognized and respected Dr. Howard L. Brooks, Skin specializes in burnishing bodies with a wide selection of surface-sprucing services. Safe for all skin types and tones, the state-of-the-art Cutera CoolGlide hair-removal system penetrates fickle follicles with a powerful light to remove unwanted portions of pelt. Although lasers are the preferred pain inflictors of secret-agent villains and heartbroken moths, Cutera’s innovative apparatus is a less threatening disperser of high-intensity beams, boasting copper cooling for a more comfortable application. Areas typically require three to six treatments to achieve desired results.
