Illume LaserSpa employs a snappy team of experienced specialists wielding advanced beautification tools to laser-blast hair and gently rejuvenate skin. Unwanted hair, known for its tendency to interrupt conversations with horrible shrieking, can be pruned with gentle, FDA-approved lasers. The Candela lasers use a patented Dynamic Cooling Device, for maximum human-hide coziness. Hair grows in cycles, so the number of sessions required for full deforestation will vary from patient to patient (single treatments: $50–$450; packages: $250–$2,200). Illume also offers a menu of outer membrane smoothers, such as microdermabrasion ($90), to exfoliate pelts and even out wrinkles, pigmentation problems, scars, and other craggy features. Upgrade to the microderm glow ($105) for a post-microderm rejuvenating serum of your choice. Also check out the BrowBar for eyebrow sculpting ($12), a brow and lash tint ($12–$20), or a permanent application of the classically quizzical one-eyebrow raise.
