The physicians and aesthetic staff all possess warm, friendly demeanors, ensuring that clients feel comfortable as they undergo one of the center's many beautifying treatments. Continually looking for new ways to rejuvenate exteriors, the aestheticians have developed a facial that harnesses the flavonoids and resveratrol in chocolate to neutralize free radicals that may have waged a microscopic poke war on skin. The spa's mission statement, etched into tan-hued walls, promises "a soothing, comfortable experience" during all services, such as Thai massage and Jane Iredale–makeup applications. Several services take a more scientific approach, employing lasers to remove spider veins, hairs, and cellulite.
Dr. Amjad Safvi has spent more than 15 years in the medical field focusing on vascular issues, particularly varicose and spider veins. He now oversees Advanced Vein Treatment & Cosmetic Center, where he and his caring staff treat patients to complimentary consultations before administering laser, radio-frequency, and sclerotherapy vein treatments along with a host of other aesthetic treatments. The facility’s laser collection, the high-tech cherry on its med-spa sundae, allows the staff to showcase hair-removal, anti-aging, and facial-rejuvenation treatments that round out a crowded roster that includes SkinMedica chemical peels, Botox injections, and fillers that can last up to five years.
Though having a board-certified doctor perform one's beauty treatments can make one feel at ease, having two can allay even the strongest of apprehensions. Dr. Khaja Asadullah and Dr. Ayesha Akbar both dispense body-sculpting services, bio-identical horomone-replacement treatments, IV nutritional therapy, and facial-filler injections with the expertise that earned them certification in age-management medicine. Their combined knowledge of this and preventive medicine helps them to fulfill myriad wellness desires, such as shedding years from patients' faces, pounds from their midsection, nutritional deficiencies, and mind-controlling xenos from their scalp.
In more than two decades, Dr. Mark Golden has performed more than 23,000 LASIK, Photorefractive Keratectomy, and Conductive Keratoplasty procedures for eliminating the need for glasses and contacts. This extensive experience along with his own firsthand knowledge—he has received both LASIK and Conductive Keratoplasty treatments himself—helps him relate to patients and calm their nerves before and after procedures.
But refractive eye procedures aren't the only treatments offered. Traditional eye exams and treatments for dry eyes, glaucoma, and astigmatism are also listed on the Doctors For Visual Freedom's service menu. In addition, Dr. Golden performs dermal filler injections to erase facial lines and offers Latisse products to help clients grow long natural lashes that will cool their cheekbones on hot summer days.
A board-certified dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon, Dr. Omeed Memar specializes in liposuction and fat transfer, holds a clinical assistant professorship at Northwestern University, and serves as the medical director of the Academic Dermatology & Skin Cancer Institute. He designs medical devices for fat transfer treatments, and his research has been showcased in leading scientific publications, making him a sought-after expert for speaking engagements and television appearances.
Dr. Memar combines his 12+ years of surgical expertise with an understanding of what it takes for clients to feel comfortable in their skin. A member of the American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and a fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, he stays ahead of the latest advancements and can correct aesthetic imbalances ranging from sagging cheeks to acne scars to being a painting by Picasso. Blemishes as varied as spider veins, skin tags, age spots, and birthmarks can be zapped away with a medical-grade laser. Photofacials, peels, and microdermabrasion smooth away dead skin cells, while hair transplants revive depleted manes and resurfacing treatments take years off of hands. Minimal incision face-lifts, tucks, and liposuction, meanwhile, renovate bodies with more permanent solutions. Dr. Memar also specializes in restoring the youthful sparkle to eyes. Drawing on more than 10 years of experience, his eyelid lifts erase the bags and excess skin that drag winks down.
Savon Spa's Parisian theme speaks to its Old-World luxury, whereas its emphasis on organic ingredients in handmade soaps and lotions belies an utterly modern eco-consciousness. The menu is determined to reach beyond standard spa fare by featuring a host of all-natural add-on services, such as vegan nailcare products that don't derive their color from pigmented bugs or pigs born with entirely too much pink. Botanicals are even directly incorporated into the French bamboo massage, in which a therapist applies focused pressure with bamboo sticks and organic oil to dissipate tension. The aestheticians and anesthesiologist on staff use their expertise to apply injectables and laser treatments that deliver natural results.
The spa also provides mobile services, dispatching staff members to transport custom treatments to in-home parties or office spaces. The professionals tote along all the spa accoutrements, from robes and slippers to soothing music.
