With more than 30 years logged as a board-certified surgeon, Dr. John V. Belmonte, Jr., brings a clinical rigor to Radiance Medspa's laser, radiofrequency, and dermal-filler treatments. Resident scientist Dr. Sonal Patel and the nurses and licensed aestheticians under Dr. Belmonte's supervision lay out various treatment options for each client to choose from. The office’s digital skin-analysis system allows them to further customize treatments using detailed information on the skin's texture, areas of sun damage, and bacteria in the pores.
Platinum Salon & Spa fills three floors with beauty professionals doling out pampering treatments. After a quick consultation, hair stylists cut locks into styles that complement face shapes, adding the occasional highlight or a new, all-over hue. Elsewhere, the dedicated pedicure room, which is blanketed in zebra-print walls, hosts mint- and almond-infused pedicures. The manicure room features shimmery stone accent walls as well as paraffin wax treatments and durable acrylic sets. The top floor holds separate men?s and women?s spas, where clients can relax during massages and facials. A medical director oversees the medical spa treatments, which range from Botox Cosmetic injections to laser hair removal sessions that evict unwanted fuzz on faces, backs, and palms.
The trained specialists at Advanced Laser Body Care Institute take aim at aesthetic imperfections with noninvasive light and sound waves, dermal fillers, and mini facial procedures. These skincare professionals work closely with each patron to draft a custom treatment plan that considers biological variables such as skin type, skin color, hair color, and hair flavor. Unwanted stubble, troublesome fat deposits, spider veins, wrinkles, and acne blotches fade or retreat entirely under the pulchritude professionals' experienced care. Anti-aging, antioxidant-full skincare products from Vivit? and Reval?Skin revitalize visages and are available for purchase from the institute.
Together with a team of nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and medical staff, the board-certified physicians at Complete Clinics design weight-loss programs based on patients' body chemistry and specific goals. They use health markers such as resting metabolic rate, insulin resistance, and cholesterol and blood-glucose levels to customize their programs. A personalized, calorically nonrestrictive diet helps patrons achieve sustainable results without counting calories, purchasing costly specialized foods, or measuring out portions with a microscope. The clinical crew can bolster weight-loss efforts with doctor-supervised HCG injections, B12 injections, and prescription medications. This hands-on clinical approach has garnered attention from numerous local media outlets, including NBC and CBS News.
To further individualize treatment, the doctor and medical staff offer specialty programs for brides-to-be, new moms, and people with diabetes or polycystic ovarian syndrome. They help clients meet health and wellness goals with innovative equipment such as Cyclic Variations in Adaptive Conditioning technology, a pressure-changing device designed to simulate interval resistance training.
From mending battle wounds to performing breast enhancement, Dr. Taek Kim has had a long and storied career. After graduating from medical school in Seoul, South Korea, the young Dr. Kim became a captain in the South Korean armed forces and flew the skies as a flight surgeon for Korean and American troops. He relocated to the United States, where he performed more than 8,000 surgeries and began specializing in cosmetic procedures. Today, as the founder and medical director of Renaissance Cosmetic Laser, Dr. Kim uses his years of experience to help both men and women enhance their appearance with services ranging from water-assisted liposuction to wrinkle-smoothing injections. Light technology also takes a polishing role in his service repertoire via laser spider-vein therapy, IPL photofacials, and procedures to install theater spotlights on a client's favorite features. When Dr. Kim isn't highlighting natural beauty, he channels his impressive resumé and renowned skills as a surgeon into mentoring young physicians as a faculty member of Hinsdale Hospital's residency program.
Fine lines soften and dissipate, wrinkles unravel and melt away, and body hair surrenders its bristly hold on the arms and legs inside of Alternative Medi-Spa. Founded and led by Daniel Rostein, MD, this medical spa staffs licensed aestheticians and laser technicians who specialize in helping clients look younger and feel more confident. The comfortable spa setting does as much to relax guests as the state-of-the-art technology does to embellish their most upfront features: SilkPeel machines, for instance, exfoliate with diamond heads that infuse the skin with vitamins and antioxidants in an exchange for toxins, which are sucked away by closed loop vacuums. IPL photogenesis treatments rely on pulsed lights to minimize fine lines and rosacea, and Cutera lasers perform skin-rejuvenation facials and remove unwanted hair from upper lips, arms, legs, and self-conscious kiwi fruits. The staff also offers facials for men and women, as well as peels and Botox cosmetic injections.
