With the names Gold and Diamond, AA Salon & Spa's menu might read like a a jewelry store's inventory. But here, the goal is not to festoon the neck or the ring finger, but instead the entire face. The skincare specialists do that with facials, including the Gold and Diamond varieties, that combat blemishes or signs of aging by using products such as oils from Turkey to deeply moisturize visages. Other services include hairstyling, waxing, and makeup application.
The Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Center of Barrington, LLC is helmed by Beverly Hills trained plastic surgeon and founder/CEO Gregory Michael Bazell, MD, who specializes in a bounty of image-improving surgical and non-surgical procedures, but just as impressive is what the center's staff can accomplish without surgery. They use aesthetic lasers to noninvasively remove unwanted hair from clients' bodies and to gently soften wrinkles and diminish age spots to leave clients looking younger. They use chemical peels to dissolve dull, aging layers of skin and reveal a fresher complexion, and call on nonsurgical techniques to reduce the appearance of spider and varicose veins. Botox injections, meanwhile, target the facial muscles responsible for frowns and furrows to give skin a chance to return to its previous state of smoothness. They also offer non-invasive skin care treatments such as chemical peels, laser facials, and microdermabrasion.
