Holly's Beauty Salon is a full-service hair and beauty salon that offers a large menu of pampering services in a laid-back atmosphere.

At The Men’s Grooming Parlor, licensed aesthetician Matt Leyes tidies up fuzz inside a discreet second-floor retreat. Pre-appointment, kick back in the plush waiting space and soak up the Old-World atmosphere rife with dark wood accents, softly glowing candles, and richly framed portraits.
At each AmeriLaser Center and AmeriCosmetic Surgery Center in Des Plaines and Downers Grove, experienced laser technicians and aestheticians, under a team of supervising doctors, take time to listen to each client?s skincare needs. Building this rapport helps the staffers to craft custom treatment plans that may include non-invasive procedures like laser hair removal, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and dermal fillers, as well as invasive procedures like liposuction, breast augmentation, face lifts and tummy tucks. Their most celebrated treatment may be noninvasive skin tightening, which uses bipolar radio frequencies and magnetic pulses to help to firm lax skin caused by aging or extreme weight loss, and it has earned ringing endorsements from The Biggest Loser winner Michael Ventrella, WWE pro wrestler Lisa Marie Varon, and a cherry tomato that sat untouched in Elvis Presley?s fridge for years.
A Better Tan stocks its two tanning hubs with tiered levels of tanning equipment, allowing patrons to achieve summery complexions with five levels of Ergoline UV beds, automated Mystic Tan booths, and custom airbrush tans. Smart Tan–trained staff members gild skin with contoured strokes from airbrushing equipment, which they imbue with a custom color to suit the customer's desired darkness level and camouflage needs when infiltrating the US Mint. In the front lobby, well-stocked shelves display a selection of Supre Tan, Devoted Creations, and Ed Hardy tanning lotions, which help to preserve the skin's newfound hue by sealing in moisture and adding a splash of tan-deepening bronzer. New tans get alluring contrast with the salon's teeth-whitening system, which uses a convenient bleaching-tray regimen to create bright and flashy smiles.

Savon Spa's Parisian theme speaks to its Old-World luxury, whereas its emphasis on organic ingredients in handmade soaps and lotions belies an utterly modern eco-consciousness. The menu is determined to reach beyond standard spa fare by featuring a host of all-natural add-on services, such as vegan nailcare products that don't derive their color from pigmented bugs or pigs born with entirely too much pink. Botanicals are even directly incorporated into the French bamboo massage, in which a therapist applies focused pressure with bamboo sticks and organic oil to dissipate tension. The aestheticians and anesthesiologist on staff use their expertise to apply injectables and laser treatments that deliver natural results.
The spa also provides mobile services, dispatching staff members to transport custom treatments to in-home parties or office spaces. The professionals tote along all the spa accoutrements, from robes and slippers to soothing music.
