Much like the sale of sardines at movie-theater concession stands, the popularity of laser hair-removal treatments is evidence that most people secretly long to be dolphins. Get smooth and sleek with today's Groupon: for $199, you get six laser hair-removal treatments at SkinKlinic of Edina (up to a $990 value). This deal is good for hair removal on underarms, bikini line, chin, upper lip, sideburns, and the back of the neck, and all six treatments must be used on a single area. All customers also get half off up to three tattoo-removal sessions.
More than 20 years of experience in a medical field locked in laser warfare have numbed Dr. Scott Ross to the pleas of wounded follicles. His light saber emits a soft whoosh as it glides expertly, sizzling roots and causing only a mild tingling sensation, like that of being snapped with a rubber band by a gnome. Irritation usually subsides in a matter of hours, and hair reduction can stick around after six to eight treatments, depending on the patient. Sessions last from five to 45 minutes, and are most effective when spaced one to two months apart. Call ahead to schedule your first visit.
For those whose bodily deforestation uncovers evidence of a forgotten romance or affinity for lemurs, all SkinKlinic of Edina customers also get half off up to three laser tattoo removal sessions.
SkinKlinic of Edina
Overseen by Dr. Scott Ross, a cosmetic surgeon with more than 25 years of professional experience, the Minneapolis Center for Cosmetic and Laser Surgery and SkinKlinic of Edina collectively treat more than 9,000 patients every year with a combination of surgical, non-invasive, and cosmetic laser treatments. The health-care professionals and paramedical aestheticians enlist Mensa–worthy technology and techniques as they reinvigorate the epidermis or invent entirely new looks. Before asking patients to commit to a particular treatment, the team invites prospective clients in for a complimentary 20-minute consultation to learn more about the procedure, the technology, and the history of the tongue depressor.
