At each Amerilaser Center and AmeriCosmetic Surgery Center in Chicago, 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.
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.

Good Foot Spa is a foot-massage and reflexology center staffed by licensed foot-massage therapists. Clients walk their stressed soles into this soothing spa, where they can lie back and relax on cushy, red reclining chairs with white towels as feet are rubbed, calmed, and therapeutically tickled using massage or reflexology techniques.
Technicians carefully apply nail polish, adding pops of color or subtle arrays of hues to fingers and toes that need to look their best when they wrestle an octopus on live TV. Aestheticians take care to keep calluses buffed and cuticles tidy, ensuring they’re ready to show off in sandal and mukluk seasons alike.
Flower murals and rose-colored walls draw guests into The Pink Nail & Spa like honeybees into a garden; cushy leather seats await them, as inviting as lush flowers. Guests plop comfortably into the chairs during manicures, pedicures, and waxing services. Creative Spa manicures and pedicures condition skin with elixirs infused with citrus oils, antioxidants, and vitamin E. Nail technicians also pamper the hands and feet with relaxing soaks and moisturizing treatments. During regular spa mani-pedis, the techs knead palms and soles and slough off expired skin with gentle exfoliation tools. Clients can also opt to pamper their whole bodies with more than a half-dozen types of massage therapy, including Swedish and deep-tissue treatments that melt pain, tension, and subcutaneous cheddar wheels.
