Bond Clinic, P.A. may be staffed by a range of doctors—from cardiologists to ophthalmologists—but the medical center offers a surprising twist to the typical clinic. While docs discuss women’s health or remove butterflies from a patient’s stomach without setting off the cacophonous buzzer, cosmetic experts man private spa rooms, where they dole out treatments for face and body. Laser technicians eradicate unwanted hair and erase signs of aging, acne, and sun damage with cosmetic laser therapy. Aestheticians take a gentler approach, treating both men and women with seven types of facials, such as the classic European treatment or the teen facial designed to combat acne and placate noses threatening to run away from home. Licensed massage therapists can also calm internal stress with Swedish, hot-stone, and aromatherapy massages.
