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.
Methylparaben, sodium lauryl sulfate, and diaminobenzene are just a few of the dirty words you're unlikely to hear at Korcare Spa & Wellness. Instead, this all-natural, organic spa favors products free from harmful chemicals, and blends formulas from ?minence Organic and SpaRitual into its large menu of relaxing services. Facials begin with a thorough skin analysis so aestheticians can customize a treatment plan that will help reverse the dulling effects of environmental changes, hormone fluctuations, allergies, and doggy kisses. One-hour wraps use herbs and oils to release body impurities or wrap the body in algae to restore hydration, and tension yields under the soothing strokes of therapeutic or Swedish massages that may be enhanced by reflexology, aromatherapy, or myofascial techniques.
Classical sculptures and mirrors create an Old-World atmosphere at Spa Constantine, where spa travelers navigate the lengthy list of spa services to discover treatments that improve health, appearance, and mood. Spa Constantine touts opulent furnishings, from carved wooden benches softened by gilded pillows to tall golden pillars capped by plush greenery. Pedicure stations cradle clients in reclined chairs with whirlpool tubs, and pedicurists use the glow from crystal chandeliers to differentiate toes from dropped grapes or missing glass eyeballs.
At Ambience Hair Salon, gentle cream hues swathe clients in serenity as practiced stylists and aestheticians beautify hair, skin, and nails. Hair services transform style, color, and texture, and a slew of services for special occasions leaves manes trussed and cheeks primed for proms, weddings, or proms that turn into weddings. Sunlight filters in through gauzy curtains as extremities indulge in pedicures and manicures, and a plush table plays host to massages.
