Few things are as embarrassing as being thrust into bikini-baring territory when you’re unprepared. There’s always that slow-motion moment as you tentatively remove your sarong, cursing yourself for eating those oh-so-delicious truffles and then the horror as you realise that your underarms resemble those of a middle-aged Hungarian man. Before you burrow your head in the sand, grope around for today’s Groupon: one laser-lipo session or one underarm hair-removal session for R122 at Renu-Derm Laser, Nail and Beauty salon.
Rather than being so hard on yourself – those truffles were delicious – fix what you can with Renu-Derm’s special Groupon deal. Possibly two of man’s greatest inventions since the snackwich machine; Renu-Derm’s answer to tubby thighs and bearded pits lays in their possession of a magical laser-lipo ultrasound machine and soft light laser treatment.
Curl up in Renu-Derm’s bright and welcoming salon and enjoy an innovate alternative to surgical liposuction. As the one true answer to all your truffle-related regrets, laser-lipo is the latest non-invasive slimming and body contouring treatment to wash up on South Africa’s bikini-bodied shores; giving those with persistent puppy-fat pouches a chance to beat the bulge without undergoing pain or discomfort. Designed to reduce levels of unwanted fat by means of an ultrasonic laser, the treatment creates a chemical signal in the fat cells, breaking them down to reveal a slimmer you.
If you’re happy with your beach body, but need to deal with the bearded tufts of hair poking out from beneath your armpits – Renu Derm’s soft light laser hair removal is the answer to your hairy-scary pits. The machine uses the power of light which is emitted across a broad range of wave lengths and absorbed by the appropriate structures in the skin. In the case of hair removal, VPL sends light to the melanin in the skin which absorbs it and is heated to a temperature that progressively, permanently and painlessly inhibits your hairs ability to grow. It’s that easy.
