Though masters of aesthetics, the staff members at Aleyra MediSpa care first about skin’s underlying health. Medical director and practicing physician Shahwar Syed not only oversees the beauty-based operations, but also provides skin-cancer screenings to Aleyra’s patients, analyzing layers of skin beyond the surface with the Clarity Pro Assessment system. To enhance appearances, the team treats such conditions as age spots, rosacea, aging skin, unwanted hair growth, uneven skin texture, and hyperpigmentation. They also can tailor maintenance regimens so that clients can uphold their looks at home or on multi-thousand-year voyages to Jupiter.
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. This downtown spot is Dr. McAdoo's brand-new location, so Groupon users will still have to call the Rockford location to schedule appointments. Botox may cause serious side effects that can be life threatening, including problems swallowing, speaking, or breathing. Read all safety considerations for Botox here.
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.
For 18 years, the skilled and professional staff members of Vein Care Specialists have cleared exteriors of unsightly or painful varicose and spider veins. Board-certified Drs. Salvador Yunez and Alvaro Montoya rely on extensive training and years of experience to scrutinize and diagnose veins and decide on the appropriate treatment. The doctors choose from an arsenal of treatments—including sclerotherapy injections, endovenous laser treatments, and ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy—to make veins vanish forever like chameleons thrown into a black hole.
After having her eyebrows irrevocably etched at the age of 18, Kelly Hemmerich became a believer in permanent cosmetics and its ability to shorten morning routines. Since 1998, she has honed her own skills as a certified permanent makeup artist. She offers two modes of application when enhancing features: SoftTap, which reduces discomfort, and a digital rotary machine that’s able to simulate eyebrow hairs and lessen touch-up times.
For three decades, LCD Spinal Care has offered patients of all ages comprehensive chiropractic care. Led by Dr. Edgar Ruble, the staff uses classic chiropractic techniques alongside more advanced equipment to move clients toward a less tired, more robust state. Traction massage and nonsurgical decompression work to relieve problems rooted in the back, spine, or neck. On the more technical end of the spectrum, auriculotherapy, a treatment that stimulates the ear with a laser, can help patients conquer burdensome tobacco addictions or a disbelief in laser pointers.
A laser spa may conjure up images of a stark medical environment, but those would be images in the mind of someone who's never been to Azizta Laser Spa. The interior, which resembles a cozy living room, brims with vintage furniture that hosts exfoliating loofahs and handmade goat's milk soaps. Here, laser services and facial treatments pamper clients looking to rid themselves of unwanted hair or fine lines caused by aging or napping on a sewer grate.
