changed his image and announced his new name "Peace" in
January of 1996 when he shaved his head onstage at the American Disc
Jockey Awards in Las Vegas, Nevada. "Peace" (the disc
jockey formerly known as Mark Thomas) used the "Peace"

years of shaving his head to maintain his clean-cut image,
"Peace" seeked out Dr. Elizabeth Scott of Advance Medical
Group in Pasadena and requested that she remove his hair with her
"Epilight" system. Dr. Scott is used to removing unwanted
hair in areas like the underarms, backs or bikini lines and was
surprised to get a request for an entire scalp. After careful
discussion, she agreed to proceed with PEACE's request for hair
removal on his head. The first treatment took place on September 23,
1998 and was the first of approximately three treatments necessary to
give PEACE a lifetime of baldness.

by generating a pulse of brilliant light that softly heats and
destroys the hair follicle. It is quicker and painless compared to
traditional methods of hair removal like electrolysis. Although
PEACE's friends and business associates advised against the
procedure, PEACE is looking forward to maintaining a razor-free
lifestyle and enjoys being bald.
