Hair is like detailed knowledge of X-Files plot lines—while extremely useful, revealing too much of it in the wrong place can sink your social life. Today's Groupon abducts rogue hairs with technology invented by a shadowy group of elites known only as the Syndicate: for $79, you get six laser hair-removal treatments at Velvet Effect Lasers in Rego Park in any one of the following body areas: cheeks (a $120 value), upper lip (a $120 value), chin (a $120 value), ears (a $120 value), center eyebrow (a $120 value), facial hairline (a $120 value), navel line (a $180 value), underarms (a $240 value), or standard bikini line (a $270 value).
Velvet Effect Lasers specializes in effective hair removal, providing smoothing services in a professional, welcoming setting. The center's certified staff brandishes the beams of the FDA-approved GentleLASE and Cutera CoolGlide, using the instruments' optimal wavelengths, which are designed to to punish pelts without damaging the skin. The finely tuned laser works to define hirsute boundaries in your choice of anatomical areas, clearing unwanted cheek beards, uprooting ingrown underarm shoots, or banishing the furry caterpillar residing on your navel line. Call to schedule an appointment for your transformation from overly tressed to sleek porpoise impersonator.
Though Velvet Effects sometimes features discounted prices online, today’s Groupon still offers the best available deal.
- For the most part, the process was imperceptible only minor irritation on some of the pulses. This was diminished almost instantly with a cooling gel automatically sprayed by the laser milliseconds subsequent to each pulse. – Denis Deck, Queens Chronicle, 01/07/10
Velvet Effect Lasers
Though Cutera, Cynosure, and Candela may sound like viable names for newly discovered planets, they're actually brands of medical-grade lasers. Still, their wavelengths achieve feats that were once under science fiction's umbrella—zapping away blemishes and unwanted hair from the dermal landscape. The certified technicians and medical personnel at Velvet Effect Lasers have mastered this high-tech arsenal; their machines can shrink spider veins, clear away acne, and tighten wrinkles through the power of light and heat, often allowing clients to return to work immediately after their appointments. The staff acquaints clients with potential treatments during thorough consultations. They even allow them to experience the lasers' effects firsthand, isolating a small section of skin for a test-patch that shows how gentle the beam feels.
In addition to administering focused remedies for rosacea, uneven skin texture, and fine lines, the technicians can combine their laser services into customized packages. For example, a three-step approach includes pulsed light PhotoGenesis sessions, anti-aging Laser Genesis procedures, and further tightening with Titan equipment, which can reduce sagging around the face and abdomen without training both lips and navels to smile indefinitely. The center's menu features non-laser treatments as well; Botox and other dermal fillers help fade facial creases, and skincare products from Obagi exfoliate and pamper pores.
