The staff at Ritacca Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa aims to balance both art and science in each surgical and nonsurgical procedure they perform. Whether patients seek tattoo removal, a face lift, vein therapy, or lip augmentation, the specialists outline custom solutions tailored to their clients' wishes and their skin's fear of falling. These plans accompany detailed information about each procedure to help patients to make the best health decision.
Decked in Renaissance–inspired art, stately wood accents, and plush leather furniture, the medical spa of Ritacca's upper level focuses on bringing inner beauty outward. The spa's skin specialists use lasers, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion treatments to help to reverse the signs of aging without subjecting faces to hours of Saturday-morning cartoons. Customers can further enhance silhouettes with expert waxing, gentle facials, and applications of permanent makeup.
Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Leon Forrester Tcheupdjian has not only been in the lipo biz since 1981 but also has authored a textbook on the topic and developed several new surgical tools of the trade. Dr. T., who has dubbed himself "Lipodoc" and is backed up by Liposuction & Cosmetic Surgery Institute's team, specializes in all manner of fat removal and relocation, both by traditional means and with modern laser technology. He also wipes out wrinkles, veins, unwanted hair, and passé tattoos, and he is able to bring his treatments to many, since he speaks five languages, including Armenian, Arabic, and pigeon.
A board-certified surgeon by trade, ReNu Cosmetic Laser Center's medical director, Dr. Arvind Patel, addresses medical concerns as well as cosmetic ones. Much like a professional cat distracter, Dr. Patel's services rely predominantly on lasers, which he employs to smooth out unwanted wrinkles and remove hair or deal with more serious imperfections such as melasma or keloid scars.
Under the supervision of double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Dhaval M. Patel, the team at Chicago Institute of Plastic Surgery specializes in clinical-grade cosmetic treatments that offer natural-looking results. Surgical procedures range from subtle to more intensive, and the staff also perform an array of med spa treatments that offer surgery-free alternatives. These include laser, peel, and injectable treatments that outfit clients with dewier complexions and smoother skin than a freshly waxed kiwi. And in addition to offering high-quality treatments, the staff also aim to create a serene, warm space with their friendly and uplifting demeanor.
Certified in plastic and general surgery, Dr. James McAdoo transforms fading facial façades into enchanting visages at both of his clinic locations. Botox treatments safely flatten furrows by paralyzing wrinkle-causing muscles with miniscule injections of toxins, leaving skin as soft and smooth as a kitten on a Segway. Side effects are generally minimal, with most patients reporting only a mild stinging that quickly subsides and a precognizant tingling that warns of oncoming danger. Treatments last from 15 minutes to an hour and are effective for up to four months.
Dr. Stacy Kaiser and her staff of aestheticians and laser technicians at A Younger You Medical Spa assess each client's unique skin type during complimentary cosmetic consultations, looking for the best way to enhance natural beauty with high technology. Dr. Kaiser earned a degree in chemical engineering in the state of Wisconsin, allowing her to customize treatments using the med spa's own prescription-grade skincare line. In addition to being certified in laser procedures such as photofacials and laser vein and hair removal, the friendly doc specializes in nonsurgical, ultrasound-based ultherapy face lifts. At A Younger You Medical Spa, technological advancements and individualized attention go hand in hand, like an arm-wrestling match between a robot and a butler.
