Before waxing, unwanted hair was given impossible brainteasers with the hope that follicles would pull themselves out in frustration. Celebrate swift hair removal with today’s Groupon: for $135, you get three nonlaser permanent hair-removal treatments with waxing and trypsin (up to a $300 value) at The Spa Studio in San Mateo. This Groupon is valid for any one of the following treatment areas:
- Modest bikini (a $204 value)
- Underarm (a $210 value)
- Upper lip and chin (a $255 value)
- Lower leg (a $300 value)
The Spa Studio's certified aestheticians clear hair and curtail its return with three hair-removal treatments using the follicle-terrorizing, FDA-approved trypsin enzyme. After daubing wax onto treatment areas—ideally lifting a quarter-inch of hair growth—practiced fingers massage the active ingredient across smoothed skin like a zookeeper carefully rubbing cream cheese onto the pelt of a hungry sea lion. The Spa Studio recommends 5–6 treatments on average before results begin to appear and may require 15 or more treatments depending on genetics, hormones, and the number of fur jackets worn during treatment. Customers can upgrade to an extended bikini, French bikini, or French extended waxing for an additional charge.
The Spa Studio
As one of the first certified-green day spas on the peninsula, The Spa Studio keeps both its clients and the earth beautiful by reducing waste and conserving resources while carrying out a range of skincare, massage, and wellness services. During airbrush-tanning sessions, a solution infused with botanicals and antioxidants coats the skin and bronzes it over a 12-hour period, resulting in a glow that doesn’t require exposure to the sun’s harmful UV comets. The Organic Bliss facial rejuvenates skin with minerals and omega-9 nutrients, and permanent, nonlaser hair removal uses an enzyme called trypsin to prevent hair from growing back.
