When we take care of our bodies, we nurture our souls. There are many ways to go about this, and each one affects us in a holistic way. Releasing muscle tension through a healing massage makes our entire self relax, and when our shoulders drop, our faces start to loosen up and glow. When we look into a mirror and the face that smiles back looks as young as we feel, we are empowered, ready and able to take on the challenges and create the opportunities we crave. Luckily for us, there’s an amazing lineup of talented medical practitioners and aestheticians nearby to help us transform ourselves and transcend perceived limitations.

As laser technology gets better, more comfortable and affordable, waxing, shaving, and electrolysis are becoming things of the past. At The Vein Therapy and Laser Center of Fairfield County, in Norwalk, men and women enjoy safe and simple hair removal as well as the treatment of varicose and spider veins. While everyone is a candidate for hair removal, people with lighter skin and darker hair tend to have better results. Lasers have come a long way in the past decade. Today, treatment usually feels like a mild pinching or stinging sensation, thanks to the laser’s built-in cooling tip that protects skin and minimizes discomfort. Because hair has three growth stages and not all hairs are on the same cycle, clients usually require six treatments to fully cover a given area.
