Although handy for eating cocktail weenies, spiky projections of hedgehog-like hair are no longer preferred over smooth skin among the fashion elite. Today's Groupon will get you as prickle-free as a nudist cactus: for $90, you get three small-area laser hair-removal sessions for one treatment area at Splendid Skin Medspa, located off I-71 (a $375 value). Splendid Skin offers specialized cosmetic treatments in a soothing spa environment.
Laser hair removal is a quick, painless, and effective method for removing unwanted hair. A long-pulse, high-energy laser emits a gentle beam of light that harmlessly passes through the skin and directly targets hair follicles. Unlike the lasers utilized by the popular film hero and 2010 California gubernatorial hopeful Iron Man, these friendly beams are easy and comfortable and treat follicles faster than other methods. Choose one area for treatment—either the bikini, face, underarm, hands, or feet—and relax as the awesome power of laser flashes detonate the socially intrusive hairs at their source. Treatments should be scheduled at six-week intervals to ensure permanent removal, and most areas require three to six treatments to achieve optimal results. Make sure to shave 24 hours in advance and avoid sun exposure, tanning, and self-tanning before your session. Keep in mind that laser hair removal does not work well for white or gray hair.
This Groupon gives you the extra option of buying a sun damage-removal package at 30% off to complement your electromagnetically powered depilatory session. The package is based on your skin's needs, so ask for details. Call ahead for appointments.
Splendid Skin Medspa
The long strokes of a therapeutic massage. A diamond-tipped wand that sloughs off depleted skin cells. Carefully targeted cosmetic injections that help ease the signs of aging. Often a person seeking all of these services would have to visit a chiropractor, salon, and med spa to achieve their goals, but the team of medical professionals and aestheticians at Splendid Skin Medspa cater to a wide range of needs in one relaxing, spa-like destination. A fleet of high-powered lasers penetrate the skin to rejuvenate faces, ease or eliminate hair growth, and destroy strip-mines hidden beneath the toenails, and massage services and B12 injections help to increase energy and health.
