Though its primary purpose remains disrupting college lectures and movie screenings, laser light has also proven useful in the precise removal of human hair. Today's smooth-making Groupon lets you reap the benefits of America's favorite repurposed supervillain weapon. For $130, you get four laser hair-removal treatments at Skin Matters (a $635 average value), located in Buckhead. Choose from the following available treatment areas: bikini ($650 for four sessions), underarms ($650), upper back ($700), lip ($500), half of one arm ($950), cheeks ($500), and back of men's neck ($500). Your Groupon can be used for four treatments in either the same or different areas and customers may purchase two Groupons for a total of eight aerodynamic body treatments.
Gone are the days when hair removal was performed by carpenters wielding custom smoothing planes and tree-sap buffers. Thanks to advancements in hair-removal technology, Skin Matters has been able to remove pesky hair with the efficiency of a skin-smoothing Zamboni for over 10 years. Clients will reap the benefits of the highest-quality equipment in the field of cosmetic lasers and the expertise of licensed aesthetician and cosmetic-laser specialist Lisa Johnson Mangrum, who has over 15 years of experience in the beauty industry. Additionally, Skin Matters is home to Dr. Peter Ulbrich, who has 18 years of experience as a medical doctor and specializes in several cosmetic procedures. Laser hair removal employs a beam of highly concentrated light that won't damage surrounding tissue but will scare off vampires. Heat ultimately destroys the hair root, resulting in a 70 to 90 percent permanent reduction of hair without the pain and discomfort of waxing or open-flame singing. Since laser light affects hair follicles when they are in the growth phase, customers will enjoy four sessions to ensure effective hair removal.
Laser hair-removal treatment may not be completely painless, but it's less irritating than laser hair addition. At Skin Matters, expertly trained professionals administer hair-blasting services that are more efficient than a lint-powered vacuum cleaner or a perpetual-motion machine propelled by Shakira’s hips.
