Dr. Amjad Safvi has spent more than 15 years in the medical field focusing on vascular issues, particularly varicose and spider veins. He now oversees Advanced Vein Treatment & Cosmetic Center, where he and his caring staff treat patients to complimentary consultations before administering laser, radio-frequency, and sclerotherapy vein treatments along with a host of other aesthetic treatments. The facility’s laser collection, the high-tech cherry on its med-spa sundae, allows the staff to showcase hair-removal, anti-aging, and facial-rejuvenation treatments that round out a crowded roster that includes SkinMedica chemical peels, Botox injections, and fillers that can last up to five years.
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.
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.
During free one-hour consultations at the Chicago Center for Anti-Aging, licensed nurses sit down with patients to help them choose among an immense array of treatments. The staff brings diverse specialties to the table, from plastic surgery and psychology to acupuncture and massage therapy. This eclecticism points to the center's philosophy, which holds that health is not simply the absence of disease and excessive body glitter, but the aligning of one's physical and mental well-being. That's why the sprawling service menu places nutrition counseling and body wraps beside cosmetic surgery, vision care, and spa treatments such as facials and Botox injections.
A member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Dr. Sam Speron leads Park Ridge Medical Spa's team of technicians as they achieve Dr. Speron's primary goal: to help patients to look good and feel good about themselves. The spa's diverse menu of services helps to adjust silhouettes, fade unwanted wrinkles, eliminate fuzzy patches, and erase tattoos of self-satisfied tattoo artists.
The beauty professionals at Indira Salon and Spa foster serenity with eco-conscious Aveda products. As stylists trim, dye, and texture hair, aestheticians revive skin with Aveda's signature plant-based facials. The staff infuses each of their services with extra touches of luxury, such as soothing noses stressed by bickering eyebrows with aromatherapy during elemental massages and offering complimentary makeup touchups after waxing. Nail technicians lavish hands and feet with masques, steam towels, and massages during even their most basic manicures and pedicures, some of which also include foot reflexology or balms made from ginger, mango, cocoa, and lime.
