A dedication to meticulous skincare and a bevy of spa services impress clients at Westmont's newly renovated Clear Skin Day Spa, where trained technicians wield products by renowned brands such as Isolaz to rejuvenate countenances. More than a dozen facials address individual needs with the aid of customizable formulas from Bioelements. Med-spa treatments employ advanced microdermabrasion and 3-D laser hair-removal technologies, and traditional mehndi services decorate the skin with henna in traditional paisley, flower, and sheep patterns.
John Montalto, a 26-year veteran of the hair-styling industry, delivers a variety of luxurious treatments for men and women at his Western Springs salon and spa. Deft hands transform female tresses with custom cuts and colors and sweep strands into updos for charity balls or cubes. Manly follicles flee from faces after hot shaves, beard trims, and mustache modifications. A mirrored wall reflects aestheticians as they cosset nail beds during mani-pedi, and potted foliage shades clientele during facials, waxing, and various modalities of massage.
Trained hands are pretty good at soothing overworked muscles, but at Dolce Vita Day Spa, they have some extra help. During Vichy hydrotherapy treatments, high-pressure streams of water invigorate the entire body as guests relax on a table, a more comfortable alternative to napping at a picnic on a cloudy day. It's typically the finishing touch on spa days that might include more-traditional massages, facials with Arbonne products, and special treatments for the hands and feet. Plant-inspired art, an indoor "garden" area, and an easy-to-reach location in downtown LaGrange make a trip to Dolce Vita relaxing from arrival on.
Salon Efthimia’s staff of pampering pros skillfully siphon the stress out of frazzled hands, faces, and bodies with soothing treatments and high-quality Aveda products. A Caribbean therapy treatment for the hands and feet uses plant ingredients from the tropics and an exfoliating paste to transform gnarled hand-roots into vibrant arm-blossoms. During an Elemental Nature massage, you get to select your favorite Aveda aroma, then relax for 60 minutes of personalized massage techniques presented in full smell-o-vision. If you'd rather focus attention on your flesh-emoticon, an Elemental Nature facial plays to your skin's needs with a suite of lotions, whether that means moistening parched pores, de-slicking oily zones, or alleviating rashes of clown paint.
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.
