A hairless body surface shaves seconds off bobsled starts, allows people swimming with dolphins to outswim them, and enables easy escapes from clingy shower curtains. Increase your dermal abilities with today’s Groupon: for $150, you get six laser hair-removal treatments at The Geldner Center on North Lake Shore Drive ($660 value).
Using a handheld beam of advanced follicle-annihilating light, one of The Geldner Center's friendly, highly trained staffers will evict stray strands from one of the following areas: upper lip, chin, ears, neck, underarms, or bikini line. The area to be treated is prepared with a cooling gel or cooling device to make the hairless transition more comfortable—the sensation, though it varies from person to person, is often compared to an action figure firing rubber bullets via a two-inch trebuchet. Six treatments will provide long-lasting hairlessness for most skin types and tones—tanned and dark tones don't always surrender their follicles to The Geldner Center's laser system, so be sure to call ahead for a consultation or visit the clean, comfortable office for a test patch before committing to treatments.
Nine Yelpers give The Geldner Center a 4.5-star average rating:
The Geldner Center
At The Geldner Center, plastic surgeon Dr. Peter D. Geldner renovates façades with a bouquet of reconstructive procedures and noninvasive cosmetic tweaks. Named one of the nation's Top Doctors by US News & World Report, Dr. Geldner uses advanced medical technology—including Palomar and Sciton technolgies—to help clients look and feel better, whether through face-lifts, eyelid lifts, nose reshaping, or chin augmentation. Lead aesthetician Deanna Stellato, one of three licensed aestheticians on staff, performs skin-renewing chemical peels, which exfoliate the skin and boost its ability to hold moisture while reducing the appearance of fine lines. Clients may also opt to pamper their countenances with classic facials, microdermabrasion, and gentle butterfly kisses from reflections.
