Tucked inside a cozy studio within InStyle Salon & Spa Suites, Face Value Skin Spa whisks male and female clients into a realm of relaxation. Here, a team of talented aestheticians help clients achieve states of beautified Zen through custom-blend Bioelements facials, Brazilian waxing for men and women, as well as speed waxing and eyebrow design. They also brandish Bioelements products while divvying out a dozen different facials that range from a deep-cleansing signature treatment to a potent acne-clearing facial laden with antioxidants. The crew also attacks hirsute skin, removing hair from backs, chests, and faces with Cirepil wax, or wielding light-based hair-removal techniques to deliver a more permanent punch and thwart hair regrowth across the body.
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.
In a relaxation haven perched just outside of the city, Eve Beauty Salon's stylists have spiffed up beauty-seekers for more than two decades, specializing in contemporary haircuts and bridal makeup. Hair whisperers stay abreast of the latest styling, cutting, and coloring techniques for men, women, and show horses alike. After locks luxuriate in a hot-oil head massage or lengthen with the aid of fused extensions, countenances soak up hydration and stoke a natural glow with the help of 24-karat-gold and rose-petal facials. Eve Beauty Salon rounds out its laundry list of services with eyelash extensions, henna tattoos, nose piercings, and henna tattoos of pierced noses.
To the staff at Renaissance Med Spa, a client's request for facial tightening never conjures images of a surgical procedure. Instead, the lateral-thinking staff would probably envision the Inmode fractora laser—a device that glides over skin to painlessly promote collagen production and fade wrinkles, acne scars, and Sharpie-drawn goatees. The spa offers nonsurgical solutions to other skincare woes, including laser hair removal, massage, and age-fighting dermal fillers. Each treatment is performed under the supervision of Dr. Carl Cucco, and the certified staff comprises registered nurses, nurse injector specialists, licensed massage therapists, and licensed aestheticians.
Spa Martinique offers an expansive menu of customized services and wellness treatments to help clients look and feel their best. A 30-minute Little Black Dress all-over makeover includes a full-body exfoliation and a hydration with a body wrap that can reveal skin with more glow than a million phosphorescent ceiling star stickers. Half-hour express custom facials deep clean, tone, and moisturize mugs to free pores from any excess buildup that might ruin graduation portraits or NASCAR photo finishes.
