In her Today's Chicago Woman blog, Living Well and Beautifully, Tiffani Kim shares her thoughts on eating well, maintaining healthy skin, and dealing with stress. At her River North medical spa, she transforms these thoughts into action. A true renaissance woman, she?s also a fashion designer and artist. She creates a spa-like environment in which her legions of devoted readers can actively follow her online advice. Her staff of professional aestheticians and massage therapists exfoliates complexions with facials and soothes sore muscles with massages geared toward men, women, and teens. They also offer holistically minded acupuncture sessions and laser treatments that eliminate unwanted hair, tattoos, and spacecrafts illegally parked in the spa?s lot.
Under the direction of Dr. William Evans, the medical aestheticians at Enfuse Laser Center & Medical Spa work to elevate their patients' self image with a full range of anti-aging and body contouring treatments. The staff uses advanced technology during services, from lasers that address sun damage, body hair, and unwanted tattoos, to injectables that alleviate wrinkles and furrows on the face. The clinic also specializes in NeoGraft hair transplants, an advanced method of hair restoration. Using an automated device to quickly harvest follicles from the donor area and move them to the recipient area, the process is less painful and invasive than traditional methods or training a chinchilla to sit on your scalp.
After earning her degree from the University of Illinois College of Medicine and fulfilling a residency at Illinois Masonic Medical Center, Dr. Bernadette Mayer dedicated her career as a healer to the practice of anti-aging medicine. Using her 20 years of broad medical experience and a board certification in internal medicine, she helps patients achieve their beauty goals while simultaneously treating the underlying physical flaws that threaten self-confidence. Her med spa houses therapeutic skin treatments including photofacials and microdermabrasion sessions that clarify skin tone and rough patches. Aided by lasers harnessed from medical-grade lightsaber replicas, her laser tattoo- and hair-removal services zap away offending pigments and hair follicles.
A board-certified dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon, Dr. Omeed Memar specializes in liposuction and fat transfer, holds a clinical assistant professorship at Northwestern University, and serves as the medical director of the Academic Dermatology & Skin Cancer Institute. He designs medical devices for fat transfer treatments, and his research has been showcased in leading scientific publications, making him a sought-after expert for speaking engagements and television appearances.
Dr. Memar combines his 12+ years of surgical expertise with an understanding of what it takes for clients to feel comfortable in their skin. A member of the American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and a fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, he stays ahead of the latest advancements and can correct aesthetic imbalances ranging from sagging cheeks to acne scars to being a painting by Picasso. Blemishes as varied as spider veins, skin tags, age spots, and birthmarks can be zapped away with a medical-grade laser. Photofacials, peels, and microdermabrasion smooth away dead skin cells, while hair transplants revive depleted manes and resurfacing treatments take years off of hands. Minimal incision face-lifts, tucks, and liposuction, meanwhile, renovate bodies with more permanent solutions. Dr. Memar also specializes in restoring the youthful sparkle to eyes. Drawing on more than 10 years of experience, his eyelid lifts erase the bags and excess skin that drag winks down.
Truex Bluex's med spa promises the most lasting transformations. The spa's custom facials and medical-grade peels refresh complexions, while its lasers halt hair growth and erase unwanted tattoos. To encourage fat-cell reduction, technicians turn to a JuVaShape device that combines ultrasound with select radio frequencies to contour problem areas. Here in Wicker Park, the staff wields all four specialized hand-pieces to tighten skin on the face and body.
With its hair salon and string of manicure stations, Truex Bluex Spa & Salon is nothing less than a comprehensive beauty center?not to mention a common stop for brides before they hit the aisle. The salon's stylists hydrate strands with conditioners and hair masks before crafting looks that flatter their clients' complexions. Not to be outdone, the nail technicians sand away calluses with exfoliating microderm manicures.
Dr.Mark Mass use his considerable medical and technological might to help erase the unerasable. Harnessing the power of RevLite SI lasers, he carefully target the pigment deposits in unwanted artwork, breaking them up so that the body can discard them naturally. A cooling device helps to ease or prevent discomfort throughout the procedures, whereas detailed aftercare instructions make scarring unlikely and help clients convince rejected tattoos not to seek revenge. The clinic also deploys its laser fleet in the spirit of generosity: Its Dots Program helps cancer survivors remove radiation tattoos after treatment has concluded.
