Last November, we did an article on the second year anniversary of Laser Affair and its owner Mary Beth Lambert. In a short two years, she has build a tremendous business providing laser treatments to the communities of New Tampa and Wesley Chapel.
Mary Beth is a highly trained Certified Medical Electrologist (CME) who is professional, experienced and passionate about her business and in helping her clients. Her clients are split – women (65%) and men (35%) and include swimmers, body builders, dancers, cheerleaders, athletes of all kinds, nudists, volleyball players, runners, gymnasts, students, brides, people with PCOS (Polycistic Ovarian Syndrome, and Hirsutism patients), along with people just wanting to improve their looks and eliminate unwanted hair.
If you are tired of; Shaving; Waxing; Plucking; Razor rash; Ingrown hairs; or just having hair in places you would rather not, then you should call Mary Beth. Laser treatment is preferable to all other options for hair removal because it is permanent.
Laser Affair uses only the latest, state of the art equipment, the Candela GentleLASE laser, and Mary Beth will tell you it is the envy of the industry. It is equipped with a Dynamic Cooling Device which ensures a patient’s comfort and safety.
Laser Affair is not a chain, but a private company owned and operated by Mary Beth, who lives in New Tampa. She does not use any high pressure sales tactics. Her only goal is to let her clients know what is achievable and the best way to get the results the client wants. She will thoroughly evaluate each client and a personalized plan will be made just for you. She will explain what they will do and why it needs to be done. You will have absolute privacy and unlike other centers, your work will be done by the same person every time.
Due to their tremendous success, Mary Beth has recently moved her practice to 15243 Amberly Dr. in the same office as Tampa Palms Plastic Surgery and her Medical Director, Gerard Mosiello, MD FACS, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. “This move just made sense”, she told me, “We needed to expand our practice, and now we have Dr. Mosiello on site. Laser hair removal is very safe, but it is comforting to know Dr. Mosiello is available should concerns arise.”
As we move into Spring, this is the perfect time to get rid of that unwanted hair that has been bothering you. Get ready for the warm weather, and summer fashions. With her personalized service and very competitive prices, you owe it to yourself to call now. When you look good, you feel good.

Located at 15241 Amberly Drive, Laser Affair is celebrating its second anniversary. Owner and Certiﬁed Medical Electrologist (CME), Mary Beth Lambert will tell you that her success the ﬁrst year has exceeded her expectations. “I am so pleased that I have been able to help so many clients achieve their goals of being better groomed. If you are well groomed, you have more conﬁdence and just feel better about yourself” she told me.
I confess that I knew very little about laser treatments and hair removal before I met with Mary Beth. However it took about two minutes to realize how professional, experienced, and passionate she is about helping her clients. With over 7 years as a CME, (she also holds certiﬁcations by the Candela Syneron and Cyno Sure Laser Manufacturing Corporation, and is a member of the Society of Clinical & Medical Hair Removal, and the Electrolysis Association of Florida, Inc.), Mary Beth is well qualiﬁed to provide her clients with the best and most professional treatment in hair removal.
I asked her who is a candidate for her services and she replied that her clients are split – men (35%) and women (65%) and included swimmers, body builders, dancers, cheerleaders, athletes of all kinds, nudists, volleyball players, runners, gymnasts, students, brides, people with PCOS (Polycistic Ovarian Syndrome, and Hirsutism patients), along with people just wanting to improve their looks and eliminate unwanted hair. So that pretty much included most everyone. If you are tired of • Shaving • Waxing • Plucking • Razor rash • Ingrown hairs • or just having hair in places you would rather not, then you should consider getting in touch with Laser Affair. Laser treatment is preferable to all other options for hair removal because it is permanent. Procedures like waxing is painful and will not eliminate the problem. Shaving and plucking is also just a temporary solution that can lead to razor rash and or ingrown hairs, all painful and unsightly.
Laser Affair is not a chain, but a private company owned and operated by Mary Beth, who is a New Tampa resident. Because of that fact, Laser Affair does not apply high pressure sales tactics, nor enforce unrealistic sales goals often associated with large corporate owned entities. “I do not believe in that” she said, “I know the industry. I know what is achievable, and I know I offer extremely attractive solutions for my clients. This has been the proven path of our success.”
At Laser Affair you will be thoroughly evaluated and a personalized plan made just for you. They will explain what they will do and why it needs to be done. You will have absolute privacy and unlike other centers, your work will be done by the same person every time. Your progress is overseen by Medical Director, Gerard Mosiello, MD FACS, Board Certiﬁed Plastic Surgeon.
Another big difference between Laser Affair and their competition is that you don’t have to pay in advance for all your treatments. There is a price incentive if you do, but at Laser Affair, you can pay as you go. And their rates, even with the ability to pay as you go, are less than their chain competition. That is such a great option with the difﬁcult economic times we are in today.
If you, or your loved one has been wanting to do something with that unwanted hair, you need to call Laser Affair. Ask for Mary Beth and tell her the Advisor told you to call. She will be glad to answer any and all questions you may have.
I asked Mary Beth what statement she wanted to give to our readers, and she said, “My focus is that the clients of Laser Affair receive optimal results after being provided thorough, honest, and realistic expectations. Our prices are extremely competitive and when all is said and done, I want each and every client to be able to brag about their experience at Laser Affair.”

With the holidays around the corner, this is the perfect time to see what Laser Affair can do for you. Want to be well groomed 24/7? Want freedom from razors, tweezers, waxing, stubble and ingrown hair? Laser Affair is your answer. Do it for yourself, or do it for your loved one. Think of it this way…With smooth skin, who beneﬁts the most? The one being touched, or the one doing the touching?

Summertime means bathing suits, shorts, sleeveless shirts – and lots of shaving! The stubble, the irritation, the razor bumps…ugh! Perhaps you have tried waxing and found it painful or, well, just a pain. What’s a girl – or a guy with a hairy body – to do?
If you ask Mary Beth Lambert, certified medical electrologist (CME) and owner of Laser Affair in the Somerset Professional Park in Tampa Palms, laser hair removal is the answer. And she will tell you the benefits of it with unabashed enthusiasm because this Dade City native and long-time Tampa Palms resident loves her job.
“I like the satisfaction people get from it (laser hair removal),” Mary Beth relates. “People try it, and the next thing you know, they are bringing in a friend or a cousin.”
You might be surprised to learn that many wives are sending their husbands to her salon too.
“About 35 percent of my customers are men,” she says. “Men or women…people are just more confident when they are well-groomed.”
Mary Beth says that laser hair removal is second only to Botox as the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedure. Many people assume that waxing takes second place, but she says that assumption is incorrect.
“Laser hair removal is preferable to waxing because it is permanent — you don’t have to grow your hair out before the treatment and it doesn’t leave your skin irritated,” Mary Beth explains. “Waxing can leave your skin raw and if it isn’t done properly, can even take off a layer of skin.”
She says laser hair removal is relatively painless, feeling similar to the snap of a small rubber band on your skin, and results in a 70-98 percent permanent hair reduction if the procedure is done by a skilled technician using the appropriate laser. Proper equipment is a key factor in determining effectiveness and safety.
“I use a laser that is the gold standard in the industry for treating people with light to medium skin types,” she says. Called the Alexandrite by Candela, it is an FDA-approved laser that precisely targets the melanin in the hair shaft, inflicting “injury” to the cells lining the hair follicle and inhibiting future growth.
“It is the most effective hair removal laser in the industry,” she says.
Mary Beth obtains a full health history of every patient and says it’s a safe procedure for most people ages 14 and older. She not only uses the laser on herself but also on her teenage daughter.
“It is a nonionizing laser, and unlike an x-ray, does not change the structure of your molecules,” Mary Beth explains. “It is simply the radiation of light and is FDA-approved for your skin.”
Skin type plays a major role in the effectiveness of the treatment. To determine skin type, Mary Beth consults with each client before any treatment is scheduled. If you have a darker skin type that would be more effectively treated with another laser, she will tell you.
“For safety and the best results, it is imperative to be treated with the correct laser for your skin type and hair color,” she says. “Some facilities put a ‘private label’ on their laser, but there are lots of inferior products out there.
You should insist on knowing the manufacturer and wavelength (of the laser), and run as fast as you can if the technician doesn’t know!”
Since most laser treatments require approximately six visits, clients of Laser Affair appreciate having the same technician perform each treatment. Privacy is respected and, because of a shared office/reception arrangement with two other businesses, a client’s reason for visiting the salon is not apparent to curious passersby.
Laser hair removal is not cheap, but if you take into account the cost of shaving over a lifetime – with razors, blades, creams and gels – or the costs associated with repetitive waxing, you can make a pretty strong case for the purchase. Mary Beth says her goal is not to get a client into the facility as many times as possible, but to achieve optimal results with a minimal number of treatments.
Some treatments require more visits than others. At Laser Affair, you can purchase treatments individually or by the package. The price is determined by the area being treated. A man’s back, for instance, will cost more than a woman’s upper lip.
Any area of the body may be treated, except for the orbital rim of the eye. Popular areas for women are the face, underarms, bikini area/Brazilian, and legs. Popular areas for men include ears, neck, back, chest and “manzilian” (Think: male version of the Brazilian).
When someone is aiming a laser at your most sensitive body parts, you want that person to be highly qualified for the job. Only a medical doctor (M.D. or D.O.), nurse practitioner (ARNP), physician’s assistant (P.A.) or CME may legally perform laser hair removal in Florida. Mary Beth has seven years of experience as a CME and laser technician.
She graduated from the Esthetic Laser Institute in Orlando and is licensed by the Florida Department of Health and Florida Board of Medicine as a CME. She also is licensed as a certified clinical electrologist (CCE).
A medical electrologist must operate under the direct supervision of a medical doctor. Laser Affair’s medical director is well-known local Board-certified plastic surgeon Gerard Mosiello. M.D. Dr. Mosiello, whose Tampa Palms Plastic Surgery practice is located in the suite next to Mary Beth’s salon, monitors all charts at Laser Affair.
“If I have a question or concern, I don’t hesitate to consult him,” Mary Beth says. “He reviews all my charts.”
Among Mary Beth’s many satisfied patients is hair designer Gwen Stewart, who is halfway through her series of six treatments. “Mary Beth makes you feel very comfortable,” Gwen comments. “She talks you through the process and guides you.”
Gwen, who has waxed her unwanted hair in the past, says laser hair removal is not as painful. “It feels like a little twitch and then goes away,” she says. “I have been very happy with the experience.” She says her treatments take less than 30 minutes apiece.
