With the opening of three dermatologist-staffed "clinical spas" in California and New York, the complexion-obsessed can receive the safest skin care modern medicine has to offer. Along with the usual mani/pedi, Los Angeles's Ona Spa (7373 Beverly Blvd.; 323/931-4442) lists botox injections and laser hair removal on its menu. At Skinklinic (800B Fifth Ave., New York; 212/521-3100), licensed nurses perform glycolic facials as well as broken-capillary removal in a minimalist Manhattan setting. And at Dr. Howard Sobel's Skin & Spa (960A Park Ave., New York; 212/288-0060), clients can recover from collagen replacement therapy with a soothing paraffin body wrap—and be back at work in a New York minute.
