Dr. Monica Hall, Sonata's beauty-bestower-in-chief, earned accolades as a general surgeon before shifting the focus of her laser sight solely on reconstructive procedures and cosmetic care. Microdermabrasion scrubs away dead skin cells to make room for the growth of fresh young cells. This facial power wash is effective at minimizing fine eye lines and large pores, and, with several treatments, it can even reduce deep-rooted dermal discoloration caused by the sun or the makeup still caked on from childhood beauty pageants. Set in Sonata's serene skin-scrubbing suites, this treatment takes about 30 minutes, and recovery is usually marked by nothing more severe than redness and a mild sting that may last 24 hours. After treatment, replenish your moisture reservoirs by caking buffed areas in cosmetic cream or the tears of a phoenix.
