Grand U offers a more holistic approach to wellness by hosting a medical facility and workout area. Aside from such basic medical care as cancer screenings, immunizations, and fatigue management, the center also provides laser treatments and a space to build muscle and endurance. Dr. Dhana Ganesan sees each patient as “a balance between mind, body, and soul” and uses her medical training in diverse social and cultural settings to create treatment plans that address the medical and aesthetic needs of her patients.
Technology meets beauty at Varicose Solutions, where the physician leads clients to flawless skin and tighter tummies. During his laser vein treatments, he uses a thin laser fiber to lessen the appearance of large varicose veins. Laser pixel sessions, meanwhile, resurface the skin to remove fine lines and shallow acne scars. The physician also eliminates moles and warts, and makes sagging skin as youthful and smooth as a laminated high-school yearbook photo with non-invasive tightening procedures. Beyond skincare, Varicose Solutions shrinks fat cells using nothing more than a small incision and an advanced laser device.
Since Dr. Julie Klarich has 35 years of field experience, she's had time to develop a repertoire that draws from chiropractic, naprapathy, Chinese medicine, and massage treatments.

Dr. Klarich's staff also targets digestive complaints, headaches, and menopause with a holistic approach that relies on herbal remedies, which clients can purchase from the in-house store.

A rainbow wall of hair and skin care products brighten the storefront at Toujours Spa & Salon, which also gathers a wide range of lauded beauty therapies and expert practitioners under its roof. Many of the salon's senior stylists boast more than a decade of experience, and training in Wella coloring techniques. Their handiness with shears is exemplified by curl specialist Katrina Spence, whose deft implementation of Deva's dry-cutting technique won her a nod in Chicago magazine. In 2005, the massage therapists earned acclaim from Daily Candy for their raindrop technique, which aims to heal back pain with a combination of reflexology and antimicrobial essential oils. Lavender aromatherapy infuses nail treatments, and Toujour's signature line of skin care products appear in facials for men and women. Guests are greeted by Ned, a cardinal-red beta fish that serves as Toujours’ official mascot and freelance accountant.
At NU:U Laser Lipo, a team of laser technicians perform noninvasive treatments designed to whittle away excess inches from the body. NU:U's signature service is i-Lipo Ultra, a treatment that uses 36 laser diodes and a vacuum massage to further lymphatic drainage and improve blood circulation. With the help the vacuum massage and a second infrared-laser wavelength, i-Lipo Ultra enhances the process of forcing fatty acids out of the cell membranes and into the tissues that can actually use it, such as the muscles, ligaments, and that kidney that no one invites to parties. The LED treatment can target virtually any body part, including the waistline, abdomen, thighs, upper arms, and chin, leaving them with less bulk and tighter, more toned skin. The result is often a silhouette slimmed up to 4 centimeters in a single treatment session, without surgery or downtime.

Unwanted stubble, troublesome fat deposits, spider veins, wrinkles, and acne blotches fade or retreat entirely under the pulchritude professionals' experienced care. Anti-aging, antioxidant-full skincare products from Vivité and RevaléSkin revitalize visages and are available for purchase from the institute.
