Like a boomerang thrown by a vengeful ghost on a carousel, unwanted hair always returns. Defuse hairy situations with supernatural ease with today's Groupon: for $130, you get three sessions of laser hair removal from the upper lip, underarms, abdomen, or bikini line at University Mission Medical Clinic in Palo Alto (up to a $735 value). Buyers can pay an additional $150 to upgrade to three sessions of extended laser hair removal from the full bikini area (an $825 value).
Led by women's health expert Joelle Osias, MD, the University Mission Medical Clinic's staff of skin smoothers bombards follicles with advanced IPL laser technology to halt growth for extended periods. Over three 15-minute sessions, high-frequency light disables the troublesome follicles that mar a customer's face or assail his or her navel, keeping skin as sleek as a robot's kneecap. Laser-wielding staffers devise a custom program for each client, tailoring procedures to hair texture and skin color on the area being treated. Through repeated coverage of hirsute zones, the long-lasting laser treatment keeps bodies clear of creeping skin vines more effectively than waxing, shaving, or fitting each hair with a tiny flesh-colored stocking.
