Inside Ultimate Exposure Tanning Centers' Chicagoland locations, a full lineup of UV- and spray-tanning equipment infuse skin with a healthy summer glow year-round. Individual sessions in the automated spray-tanning booths?such as VersaSpa?or UV beds gild bodysuits for nights on the town, and unlimited monthly packages fashion a continuous golden hue previously only available to sunbathing satellites. The salon stocks a variety of tan-accelerating lotions from Swedish Beauty, Australian Gold, and Designer Skin, which deepen bronze hues and moisturize skin to fashion a long-lasting radiance.
A board-certified surgeon by trade, ReNu Cosmetic Laser Center's medical director, Dr. Arvind Patel, addresses medical concerns as well as cosmetic ones. Much like a professional cat distracter, Dr. Patel's services rely predominantly on lasers, which he employs to smooth out unwanted wrinkles and remove hair or deal with more serious imperfections such as melasma or keloid scars.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Peter Johnson has a work ethic that not only drove him to earn highest honors from the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honors Society at Northwestern University Medical School, but also to become a clinical assistant professor at the University of Chicago and to open his Center for Aesthetic Surgery. When he's not performing face-lifts, nasal shaping, liposuction, or breast enhancements, Dr. Johnson is answering questions about cosmetic surgery and doling out advice on RealSelf's online doctor-patient forum or obtaining a perfect score while playing Operation.
Roxy’s Med Spa’s lasers can rejuvenate skin, smooth away wrinkles, and permanently reduce hair growth, a versatility that also distinguishes the spa’s licensed staff. The highly trained technicians can liberate faces from dead skin during microdermabrasion treatments, and also help healing serums penetrate below the face’s surface during ultrasound facials. Their skills also extend to classic spa treatments, such as traditional facials, during which they cleanse, steam and exfoliate skin, before hydrating the face with a nourishing mask, and in extreme cases, rounds in the dunk tank out back.
Feet may be the focus at VIP Foot Spa, but they aren't the only parts that get pampered. Reflexology therapists employ reflexology techniques that use the feet as a conduit for whole-body balance, and instead of ceasing kneads at the ankle, they also soothe scalps, necks, shoulders, and backs. But that doesn't mean the feet themselves are neglected?rather, toes and fingers in disguise are treated to warm herbal baths. Should clients seek an equally indulgent experience for the top half of the body, they can stop by the spa's hair studio for cuts and color services.
