Certified in plastic and general surgery, Dr. James McAdoo transforms fading facial façades into enchanting visages at both of his clinic locations. Botox treatments safely flatten furrows by paralyzing wrinkle-causing muscles with miniscule injections of toxins, leaving skin as soft and smooth as a kitten on a Segway. 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.

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.
