Spa Week 2012: Featuring Dr. Q Cosmetics Laser Hair Removal & More for $50 #Atlanta

If you live in Atlanta you don’t want to miss out on this year’s Spa Week 2012 deals.  I found a great deal at Dr. Q Cosmetics located in Decatur, GA.  Knowing that I wanted to do laser hair removal and finding that Dr. Q Cosmetics was offering $50 treatments during Spa Week my decision to choose them was a no brainer.  Why?  Because if someone is going to put a laser to my face it is going to be done in a doctors office.  I was nervous enough about the procedure but knowing this was a very professional business located on the same property as the hospital put all my concerns at rest.

When I arrived at the office I was even more relaxed because I was given a  blow by blow description of what the Laser Hair Removal would entail. It wasn’t at all what I had expected and it was relatively painless (no more than waxing in my opinion, perhaps less) and quick.

The steps

  • Clean area
  • Shave with razor (this does not promote excess hair growth)
  • Apply either ice pack or topical gel for pain relief
  • Clear and dry skin
  • Pulse with laser approximately 16 – 20 times across lip (8 x each time)
  • Apply cooling gel
  • Wipe and go!

It really was that simple and that fast…

What is the upkeep?  It varies but on average return every six weeks up to six times for a total of six treatments.  Results are permanent unless hormonal changes or other changes (such as PCOS) cause return growth.  I figured it out and even at the normal price of $75 a treatment I would spend less having this done than what waxing costs me  in under two years.
