Metropolitan MD's board-certified doctors perform both cosmetic and medical, as well as both surgical and nonsurgical, treatments for the face, body, and skin. Dr. John Rachel is triple-board-certified in otolaryngology, facial plastic surgery, and cosmetic surgery, qualifying him to treat nose and throat ailments as well as beautify bodies and land airplanes in Siberia. Both doctors remain active in the medical community through their publications and membership in medical associations.
Recognized by Chicago magazine for their excellence in both short haircuts and color, Pascal Pour Elle's style masters redo 'dos and refresh visages with a parade of salon and spa services. Those who are tired of picking boa constrictors out of their overgrown follicular jungles can get their locks trimmed into fabulous new fashion. Next, the noninvasive microdermabrasion facial pits gentle exfoliation against weary old skin cells in an unfair fight fixed by dermal gamblers. The vulnerable cells are then hauled away in a suction process that also promotes the growth of healthy newborn replacements, leaving skin with a smoother texture and more even tone.
Sono Bella Clinica's medically supervised staff deploys FDA-cleared VelaSmooth treatments that coalesce radio frequencies, infrared light, and gentle vacuuming to smooth puckered epidermises. Invisible waves and rays delve stealthily beneath the skin's surface, catalyzing metabolism within embedded fat cells to leave behind a smoothened façade. Cellulite colonies of the hips, abs, buttocks, arms, calves, neck, and bra line capitulate under the invisible auspices of VelaSmooth technologies. Most patients require six to eight weekly sessions lasting 45- to 60-minutes each to achieve ideally dimpleless skin, and results typically last six to eight weeks after the last session. Because of its non-invasive nature, VelaSmooth treatments incur no recovery time, so clients can immediately return to prior engagements such as a Rockette's body double.
Sona Bella translates to ?I am beautiful? in Italian, and that's exactly how the chic med spa wants its clients to feel when they exit its doors. Here, the beautifying treatments range from laser hair-removal sessions that leave skin silky-smooth to photofacials and chemical peels that diminish fine lines brought on by natural aging or the stress of time-travel. Specialists sculpt physiques with non-surgical body-contouring treatments or body wraps that use natural plant and seaweed extracts to visibly reduce cellulite and fat, while lax skin can be remedied with cutting-edge treatments that use heat energy to stimulate collagen production.
Of course, Sona Bella's name could also be taken literally. The med-spa boasts a design that's as eye-catching as it is luxurious, surrounding customers with glistening chandeliers sleek, modern furniture, and subtle touches like fresh flowers.
Erica Trojan is on the receiving end of many glowing testimonials. "Whenever somebody says that I have great skin, I credit Original Skin and Erica Trojan," declares one happy customer. "My skin looks better now than ever," says a client of 12 years. Another just states succinctly, "I would sacrifice many things, but I would never give up Erica."
The reasons for all of the praise: Erica's medical knowledge coupled with her attention to proper skincare and her warm, approachable demeanor. The licensed medical aesthetician combines experience working with plastic surgeons with her know-how of non-invasive advanced technologies and nutrition and wellness to rejuvenate skin, face, and neck and infuse clients with a glow previously only achieved by swallowing LED lights.
Erica rids clients of dead skin cells during papaya enzyme peels, exfoliates and stimulates collagen production with dermaplaning, and strengthens facial muscles during diamond medi-lift sessions. She also arms clients with nutritional tidbits aimed to keep their skin healthy and illuminated.
The licensed aestheticians, therapists, and wellness practitioners at NuVie Skin Care and Wellness Center—French for “new life”—help clients bring “new life” to their skin and bodies with beauty and wellness treatments.
