Cosmetic Enhancement Clinic draws natural beauty out of their clients like water from a sponge. Assisted by aesthetician Kathy Kelly, who has worked at the clinic for more than two years, the team works to enhance clients' existing features with services such as permanent makeup, facials and microdermabrasion, and eyelash and brow tinting. For more in-depth corrections, they can help clients camouflage scars to create a uniform complexion or remove tattoos with lasers, as opposed to just wearing an arm cast for the rest of your life.
In her years as a permanent and semi-permanent makeup expert, Suzie Kim became disillusioned with the products and techniques available to her—many left drastic, unnatural results. She eventually discovered semi-permanent makeup; instead of depositing harsh tattoo inks deep into sensitive facial skin, an entirely permanent technique allows the design to eventually fade into a bluish-gray hue or a vintage ribbon that says "Mom," Now, Suzie grants her clients more defined eyes, eyebrows, and lips, shortening their morning routines and leaving their faces radiant.
Anastasia Makeup Chicago is a go-to resource for cosmetics, given that it not only provides applications of traditional, and permanent makeup, but also lessons on applying makeup yourself. The staff takes its time with clients, spending one to two hours on lessons and up to a full day for applications.

Visage de Beauté refreshes façades with microdermabrasion treatments that utilize diamond chips to excavate the top layer of skin—clearing away dead skin cells and leaving faces smoother, healthier, and younger looking (a $125 value). The Echo 2 Plus oxygen treatment will then seek to reverse signs of aging caused by sun and pollution (a $95 value). After exfoliation, a vitamin-enriched mask deluges subepidermis cells with osmotic hydration. This clears the way for a vapor mist of pure oxygen gas, which will infiltrate the lower dermal layer with vitamins and minerals to refresh tired skin, restoring it to a nubile state of relaxed joyousness unlike any since you got your braces removed.
