TLC Medispa uses lasers and other advanced treatments for an array of hair-removal and skin-refining services. During laser hair-removal treatments, the spa’s certified laser technicians de-fuzz façades with meticulous attention to detail, taking the time to learn each follicle’s name and favorite color before wishing it a happy retirement with the aid of one of the spa’s two laser systems for a personalized treatment.
TLC's photofacial sessions work to coax fresh skin cells from expression makers, which can help overturn irregular pigmentation and sun damage. Treatments can also boost collagen production, which can lessen other signs of aging such as fine lines and built-up wax from years of vehemently blown-out birthday candles. Photofacials are only effective on skin tones up to a Fitzpatrick skin type III—most Caucasian skin, lighter shades of Asian, Latino, and Middle Eastern complexions, and selected Pac-Man ghosts.
TLC's Nd:YAG laser can lessen the appearance of spider veins, whether they're a result of sun exposure, genetics, or skin's affinity for tree-branch impersonations. Twenty minutes of light therapy can reduce the appearance of visible veins up to approximately 2 millimeters in diameter, with many clients experiencing optimal results after three sessions spaced a few months apart.
Though TLC Medispa sometimes offers discounts online, this Groupon still represents the best deal available.

About TLC Medispa
Just because each service at TLC Medispa relies on laser energy, that doesn't mean the center's equipment isn't versatile. That's because the center uses the Palomar StarLux 500 and Cynosure Elite laser systems, a practice which means the staff of certified laser technicians can treat any skin type, and the newer Palomar Vectus for quicker treatments.
During laser hair-removal treatments, techs aim these machines' intense beams of light at hairs to seal off the blood vessels that feed the follicles, thereby permanently preventing regrowth. The technicians also use lasers to clear away wrinkles, scars, acne, pigmentation, and spider veins. Because TLC Medispa's staff includes board-certified doctors, clients can also ascertain whether stethoscopes can detect disloyalty in pets.
