At AMS Vision, a trio of accomplished doctors treat patients with both preventive and emergency eye care. Beyond basic services, including eye exams and contact lens fittings, the team is equipped to handle foreign-object removal, LASIK, and cataract consultations—for which they also co-manage the scheduling of surgeries and follow-ups. Upon having their vision corrected, patients will notice that the vision center has another side to it—a medspa. Here, practitioners administer Botox and other cosmetic injections, as well as laser treatments for vein therapy, hair removal (Oak Brook location only), and anti-aging facials, which can help clients go back and land the starring role in their middle school’s rendition of Annie.
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.
Monica Harris began her career in the beauty industry as a makeup artist, even developing enough expertise to design and teach a college course on makeup artistry. After spending countless hours working on models, she realized that even the most makeup-savvy girls struggled with their skincare. Inspired by this experience, Monica became a licensed aesthetician to educate clients and improve the quality of their skin. Today Monica runs several successful spas, where she works directly with her clients to clear up skincare woes and develop results-oriented home regimens to whip skin into shape without the use of restrictive pore girdles. At Monica’s Skincare Boutique, she delivers a host of skincare treatments along with a full menu of makeup, nailcare, and waxing services.
Among the hair stylists, nail technicians, and aestheticians that brighten Clydon Salon's interior, a common philosophy permeates—one founded in a genuine interest in each client's well-being and translated into services precision tailored to meet personal needs. Through continued training, the staff learns the many manners of pampering, as hair stylists massage away thought bubbles trapped within scalps and aestheticians dissolve anxiety by revealing glowing skin worthy of HDTV close-ups. Great Lengths' 100% human hair strands extend natural locks with laudable discretion, and Biolage haircare products celebrate the discoveries of scientists diligently surveying the flowers and botanicals flourishing in the field of beauty.
La Piel Perfecta's skin-clarifying clinic keeps patients smooth by lasing away hair, wrinkles, veins, and other epidermal imperfections. The staff also rewinds skin clocks with dermal fillers such as Botox, Juvéderm, Restylane, and Radiesse, and uses mechanical massage to reduce unsightly cellulite during noninvasive Endermologie treatments.
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.
