$199 for five laser hair-removal treatments on a medium area ($1,000 value)
Safe for all skin types, the Cutera CoolGlide and Cutera ProWave lasers send pulses of concentrated energy rippling beneath the skin’s surface, helping to rid bodies of hair and unsightly outbreaks of narwhal horns. The CoolGlide protects skin with a copper cooling system, and the ProWave uses multiple wavelengths to achieve versatility necessary to attack different types of fuzz. There is typically no downtime after the treatment, so patients can immediately leap back into their dust cloud of brawling cartoon characters and head home. More than five treatments may be needed for a permanent reduction of 100% of hair.
When she's not designing cosmetic-enhancement regimes at Southern Aesthetics or attending at one of five area hospitals, Dr. Penelope Treece works on her oil paintings. The American Board of Surgery-certified surgeon has been an artist since childhood, but reserved painting and modeling berets as private indulgences while forging a career in medicine. She earned her white coat at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and completed her general surgical residency at Louisiana State University before honing in on breast and other aesthetic surgeries, also becoming certified by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery. At Charity Hospital, she developed and published a new technique for reconstruction, which now informs her specialty in breast augmentation and reduction.
Her surgical expertise extends to tightening sagging skin all over the body, and a team of certified aestheticians and massage therapists extends her rejuvenating touch with minimally invasive technology. A collection of lasers––including FDA-approved devices from Cutera–– gently zap acne, veins, and body hair to reveal smooth, healthy skin. A complimentary consultation begins every visit to the office.
