Under the direction of Dr. Jeff Lowery, the staff of Pelli' Medical Aesthetics rejuvenates appearances with a catalog of noninvasive services. Technicians wield laser light to achieve various ends, employing its concentrated rays to eliminate body hair, plump wrinkles, reduce acne, and entertain cats for hours and hours.

Obagi medical products infuse skin with curative ingredients that resolve common skin conditions, and a suite of professional beauty products helps patients sustain their results long after their visit.
Microdermabrasion is a treatment that removes the face's stratum corneum, or outermost surface of the skin. These dead cells stifle the under-face like a mother who coils her grown children in plus-sized swaddling cloths. At Mona Spa, expert aestheticians perform the procedure over the course of 45 minutes. Lie back and let their well-trained hands guide a Clarisonic cleaning brush over your facial region, ridding it of oppressive dirt and overly sentimental oil. The crystal-free cool microdermabrasion treatment comes next, followed by LED therapy delivered with gentle airflow to soothe your recently excavated baby skin. Top it all off with the gentle hug of a moisture mask that will protect your face from the harsh rays of the sun, especially useful if the sun is breaking into your house at night to watch your cable.
When life on the lam plunks you in the middle of an identity comedy worthy of Shakespeare or Voltaire, respond in kind with the proper face and head shaping that will keep your disguise intact. Tame unruly tresses with a trim (starting at $15), or make a pit stop to treat yourself to an express facial ($35) during a particularly tiring shift of delivering plutonium to local captains of industry. Exterminate uninvited body hairs with any of Bombay's regionally specific waxes (starting at $11). Waxing provides a longer-lasting hairlessness than shaving, and when the hair does come back after a few weeks, it's meek, soft, and easily scared back into the follicle with banging pans or the threat of another round of wax.
