Permanent Hair Removal for Women, Men Give the Gift of Hair Removal

Give the gift of permanent hair removal
Need a fresh gift idea for an upcoming celebration? Why not try something unique this year instead of falling into a gift giving rut of flowers, chocolates or department store gift cards. Both the men and women in your life, whether it’s that special someone, a parent, sibling or close friend, will appreciate the long-lasting effects of permanent hair removal. And we’re not talking about gift wrapping an over the counter disposable razor or messy waxing kit seen on late night infomercial. We’re talking about laser hair removal – the FDA approved method for achieving permanent hair removal results.

The process is repeated over each treatment area over a period of several months to ensure that each hair is disabled and permanent hair removal is achieved. Laser hair removal can be performed by a certified laser technician in an office or salon, or an at-home system can be purchased to use in the privacy of your own bedroom or bathroom.   Read more
