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.
Inside Ultimate Exposure Tanning Centers' Chicagoland locations, a full lineup of UV- and spray-tanning equipment infuse skin with a healthy summer glow year-round. Individual sessions in the automated spray-tanning booths?such as VersaSpa?or UV beds gild bodysuits for nights on the town, and unlimited monthly packages fashion a continuous golden hue previously only available to sunbathing satellites. The salon stocks a variety of tan-accelerating lotions from Swedish Beauty, Australian Gold, and Designer Skin, which deepen bronze hues and moisturize skin to fashion a long-lasting radiance.
Using the Apogee Elite laser system, Cosmedic Laser Spas' techs accommodate both light and dark skin types during laser hair-removal and skin treatments. The laser delivers pulses of light to destroy hair follicles at their root, and also skims skin terrain to erase signs of aging, including age and sun spots. Aestheticians further beautify façades by buffing away fine lines, blemishes, and smeared handprints with microdermabrasion treatments.
The hairstylists at SuperStar Styling Studio aren't celebrities, but they do know how to make each of their clients feel like one. Between bright red walls, clients cozy into leather cutting chairs as stylists who specialize in African-American hair expertly relax, deep condition, razor cut, and press tresses into style-complementing 'dos. Looks are also transformed with quick weaves, which cover locks with a partial wig, and sew-in extensions add immediate volume and length for a natural look that can even trick your long-haired twin into thinking you are her.
According to the founders of Ortanic, it seemed there'd always been a few problems with spray tans. They smelled. They left streaks and orange tints. The results were inconsistent. To fix these common complaints, Ortanic's visionaries took matters into their own sun-dappled hands. After extensive research, they developed their own approach to spray tanning, concocting a proprietary formula to address streaks and incorporating an air-purification system to keep the extraction booths clear of particles. In January of 2009?just in time for Chicago's beach season?the first location opened.
Since then, Ortanic has expanded into four locations across Chicago. Inside each, licensed skin consultants work closely with clients to select, blend, and apply custom blends to fit their skin tone. The resulting glow lasts five to seven days?just long enough for a trip to Alpha Centauri to try tanning under another sun for a change.
