Led by Dr. Landon Pryor, the skilled technicians at True Laser use Candela GentleLase and GentleYAG lasers for hair removal and collagen-stimulating skin-rejuvenation treatments. They calibrate the laser's wavelength to suit either purpose, and a cooling device spritzes skin with cryogen immediately after the laser's pulses to make treatments more comfortable for clients.
But not all of True Laser's services are laser-based. Aestheticians polish away dead and dull skin with microdermabrasion treatments, using pure baking-soda crystals—rather than the more commonly used aluminum oxide—to avoid unnecessary skin irritation. They also stock glo therapeutics skincare products—infused with vitamin C and ultrafine fairy dust—for facials tailored toward each client's needs, and they administer facial peels to target signs of aging.
Renew Skin Spa’s team of aestheticians and technicians keeps bodies youthful and minds sharp, treating cosmetic concerns with personalized spa and med-spa sessions and educating clients on new skincare strategies. The team gets to know each set of skin through comprehensive consultations, which clue clients in to pressing dermatological concerns and help technicians recommend the most appropriate treatments. From there, techs can enrich dermal layers with vitamin- and antioxidant-rich balms, conceal signs of aging with skin-firming LED or ultrasound therapies, or soothe deeper stress with any of numerous massage modalities. Much like an arm-wrestling match with the Speaker of the House, each treatment requires that clients schedule an appointment beforehand.
A Cut Above Hair Studio is a Redken Elite Salon. That means the on-staff hairstylists, colorists, nail technicians, and skincare specialists not only boast years of practice, but they do their diligence to stay up-to-date on the latest trends and techniques.
Over on the salon side, stylists provide designer cuts personalized to each client; they'll add color, give hair shape and volume, or straighten it to create a look that suits their client's individual features and lifestyle. Skincare services are just as personalized?during the custom spa facial, aestheticians employ warm towels, toners, moisturizers, and steam to wrestle out whatever blemishes are interfering with skin's natural radiance. Massages and body wraps round out the pampering services, offering respite from stresses such as work deadlines or trying to get your dog to eat your homework.
All of European Wax Center's waxing services are performed using the center's exclusive hard wax. This wax, made in Paris from pure, all-natural beeswax, is designed to evict even the toughest tuft, while caressing skin as gently as a feather tickling a feather. During a full face wax, water-wick your skin with friendly follicle extraction on the cheeks, chin, upper lip, nose, front of neck, and side burns, creating a smooth canvas to highlight artfully arched brows. Or opt for the women's or men's full arm wax, which wipes out wool from shoulders to knuckles, finally displaying treasure map tattoos long hidden by fuzz.
If experience were measured in pounds, the laser technicians at Advanced Laser Clinics would be lugging around an aircraft carrier. Across the country, they have performed more than 250,000 treatments, banishing hair, acne, veins, and wrinkles from the body like so many itchy berets. During hair-removal sessions, technicians use the heated energy of the Lumenis LightSheer laser to destroy hair at the root as a built-in ChillTip prevents clients from experiencing excessive discomfort. The LightPulse Skin Renewal system reduces the appearance wrinkles, and other laser treatments work to eliminate surface veins and irritating acne that won't stop singing “MMMBop.” To ensure patients' safety, a medical doctor supervises technicians and oversees procedures such as aluminum-oxide crystal microdermbrasion, which is performed by medical aestheticians armed with skincare products from Cellex-C, Decléor, Dermalogica, Dermablend, and Dr. Brandt.
At each AmeriLaser Center and AmeriCosmetic Surgery Center in 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.
