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.
Dr. Parol Pitroda hails from the Chicago area and completed her residency at West Suburban Medical Center in Oak Park. Once she became board certified in internal medicine, Dr. Pitroda opened Pitroda Medical, where she and her team treat disease and illness and provide medical weight-loss programs and cosmetic services. At the clinic, a staff of licensed aestheticians also beautifies clients with med-spa treatments including facials, Botox, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion, sending them back into the world with more confidence than a professional baseball player pitching at a Little League game.
At Asha SalonSpa, aestheticians and massage therapists combine forces to ensure the whole-body well-being of clients. Spa services such as facials, microdermabrasions, and prenatal care coddle the corpus from head to toe, beginning with a neck pillow and cup of tea. At the salon, makeup and nail services revitalize faces and fingers, and hair treatments such as cuts and color rely on Aveda’s natural line of products. Asha also offers several massages, including deep-tissue, couples, and chakra-balancing modalities, allowing patrons to unwind without setting off their clockwork motors.

Eyelash extensions. Bridal makeup. Customized facials. Those are just a handful of the services the professionals of Ooh So Pretty Salon and Spa use to make the world a prettier place. Inside their beauty emporium (which is located inside the Phenix Salon Suites), stylists snip locks into modern styles or add complementary streaks of violet or pink. Like an erasable pen, chemical peels help reduce the appearance of fine lines and aestheticians remove unwanted fuzz with body waxing form face to feet.
As owner of The Beauty Studio, Elizabeth wears many hats. She's a state-licensed aesthetician and nail technician, is certified in medical aesthetics and micropigmentology, and can braid hair with one finger. In the comfort of her cozy beauty studio, clients can draw on her 15 years of experience with an invigorating facial, shea-butter wrap, or anti-aging exfoliation treatment. The spa can also promote eye appeal with lash extensions or nix unflattering hair from the brows and body with a specialty waxing session.
