Dr. Amjad Safvi has spent more than 15 years in the medical field focusing on vascular issues, particularly varicose and spider veins. He now oversees Advanced Vein Treatment & Cosmetic Center, where he and his caring staff treat patients to complimentary consultations before administering laser, radio-frequency, and sclerotherapy vein treatments along with a host of other aesthetic treatments. The facility’s laser collection, the high-tech cherry on its med-spa sundae, allows the staff to showcase hair-removal, anti-aging, and facial-rejuvenation treatments that round out a crowded roster that includes SkinMedica chemical peels, Botox injections, and fillers that can last up to five years.
Chicago Weight Loss and Wellness Clinics Inc. scoffs at fast-action diet fads, electing instead to shepherd its patients to svelteness via healthful, maintainable weight-loss, fitness-training, and aesthetic services. A health-conscious staffer helps patrons uncover the best weight-loss path after analyzing their metabolic speed, lifestyle, hormones, stress level, and ongoing standoffs with neglected heads of broccoli. Whether they wield a single treatment or combine a handful of services, all of Chicago Weight Loss and Wellness Clinics' procedures chase the center’s core mission of helping clients ameliorate their health, life longevity, and overall sense of happiness.
Under the supervision of double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Dhaval M. Patel, the team at Chicago Institute of Plastic Surgery specializes in clinical-grade cosmetic treatments that offer natural-looking results. Surgical procedures range from subtle to more intensive, and the staff also perform an array of med spa treatments that offer surgery-free alternatives. These include laser, peel, and injectable treatments that outfit clients with dewier complexions and smoother skin than a freshly waxed kiwi. And in addition to offering high-quality treatments, the staff also aim to create a serene, warm space with their friendly and uplifting demeanor.
The Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Center of Barrington, LLC is helmed by Beverly Hills trained plastic surgeon and founder/CEO Gregory Michael Bazell, MD, who specializes in a bounty of image-improving surgical and non-surgical procedures, but just as impressive is what the center's staff can accomplish without surgery. They use aesthetic lasers to noninvasively remove unwanted hair from clients' bodies and to gently soften wrinkles and diminish age spots to leave clients looking younger. They use chemical peels to dissolve dull, aging layers of skin and reveal a fresher complexion, and call on nonsurgical techniques to reduce the appearance of spider and varicose veins. Botox injections, meanwhile, target the facial muscles responsible for frowns and furrows to give skin a chance to return to its previous state of smoothness. They also offer non-invasive skin care treatments such as chemical peels, laser facials, and microdermabrasion.
