The staff at Spa Soma treats clients with a varied menu of aesthetic, weight-loss, and medical beauty services. They work to pair a gentle, warm environment with high-quality medical treatments, such as laser hair removal. They also offer seven different types of massage, dispelling the notion that beauty procedures backed by scientific research must be performed in a cold, sterile environment devoid of human life. These effective treatments include chemical peels, microdermabrasion, injectables, and dermal fillers, which reduce telltale signs of age, such as wrinkles or tattoos written in Sanskrit.

A full-service salon complements the center's aesthetic medical services. Here, staff members perform customized haircuts and clip nails during express and spa mani-pedis.

Overheard, crystals sway, clinging to chandeliers suspended from a sky-blue ceiling. Sunbeams pour in, occasionally catching these twinkling adornments as it stripes the lobby with light on its long slide along the marble reception desk. This is New Life Massage, where tranquility begin before you even step into a treatment room. After checking in at the desk, visitors traverse ivory corridors lit by curling wall sconces before settling into a private treatment room or smashing a stress ball in the sledgehammer room. In these secluded rooms, treatments unfold, treating guests to everything from restorative Swedish massages to skincare and waxing treatments.

At intimate salon, boutique, and spa Mia Sorella, which means "my sister" in Italian, owners and twin sisters Mary Sirois and Molly Kiefer strive to make customers feel beautiful, whether it be through a haircut and fresh highlights, a new wardrobe, a massage, or full bridal hair and makeup. The boutique staff works to keep customers well dressed with a selection of stylish jackets, dresses, and culottes by designers such as Darling, Tulle, and Level 99. The spa staff pampers complexions and nails, and a licensed massage therapist brings chiropractic know-how, spa experience, and a Swedish dictionary to each relaxing kneading.

The staff at Spa Vargas Wellness pampers bodies and minds with luxurious spa services that deploy the spa's own line of naturally sourced products. Moving to their new location, the team at the Pheasant Run Resort outfits clients with cozy robes and slippers before inviting them to relax in an aromatherapy waiting room, which is more fragrant than a dessert buffet at Strawberry Shortcake's house. Nimble hands can exfoliate skin with a sea-salt or mud scrub, and the spacious Moroccan-style Vichy shower rejuvenates skin during hydrotherapy treatments. The calm-inducing crew passes on kneading know-how to up-and-coming massage therapists and play-doh sculptors at Spa Vargas University.

Laura B Salon’s owner, Melissa Pounds—who shared a bevy of beauty advice in the January 2011 issue of Quintessential Barrington—helms a crew of trained stylists armed with products from brands such as Wella, INOA, and Moroccanoil. Beauty-seekers can rejuvenate during custom services ranging from VersaSpa sunless tanning and full-body waxing to ammonia-free hair-coloring treatments. Under the bright light that trickles down from silver chandeliers, hairstylists trim tendrils into flattering ’dos as patrons relax in white leather chairs, periodically checking an oval, silver-framed mirror for any evidence that their face might be secretly concealing an outlawed expression.

A waiting area like a fine parlor⎯complete with soft leather furniture, honey-hued hardwood floors, and a vase of flowers perched atop a coffee table⎯welcomes guests into the specialized laser spa. During Laser l'Amour's signature hair-removal treatments, Dr. Margaret Sierantowicz wields Palomar StarLux lasers to free skin of unwanted fuzz with minimal discomfort and no downtime. Clients strut from treatment rooms after gaining a boost in confidence for beach season or an aerodynamic advantage for human-cannonball-school-admissions season. The staff also administer laser-free microdermabrasions and peels designed to leave skin softer, smoother, and scarless.
