Metropolitan MD's board-certified doctors perform both cosmetic and medical, as well as both surgical and nonsurgical, treatments for the face, body, and skin. Dr. John Rachel is triple-board-certified in otolaryngology, facial plastic surgery, and cosmetic surgery, qualifying him to treat nose and throat ailments as well as beautify bodies and land airplanes in Siberia. Both doctors remain active in the medical community through their publications and membership in medical associations.
Recognized by Chicago magazine for their excellence in both short haircuts and color, Pascal Pour Elle's style masters redo 'dos and refresh visages with a parade of salon and spa services. Those who are tired of picking boa constrictors out of their overgrown follicular jungles can get their locks trimmed into fabulous new fashion. Next, the noninvasive microdermabrasion facial pits gentle exfoliation against weary old skin cells in an unfair fight fixed by dermal gamblers. The vulnerable cells are then hauled away in a suction process that also promotes the growth of healthy newborn replacements, leaving skin with a smoother texture and more even tone.
Licensed massage therapist John Slipke helps allay aches with neuromuscular therapy, a medical-massage technique that aims to ease muscle pain, bursitis, and injury-related discomfort. At the start of each appointment, Slipke chats with the client to pinpoint probable causes of tenderness, which may include sciatica, plantar fasciitis, or repeatedly watching Old Yeller. He may also identify pain triggers by analyzing the body's posture. Throughout the session, the client shares feedback, noting when pressure alleviates aches and crackling when attached to a guitar amplifier. After the kneading massage, Slipke crafts a custom wellness plan-including a pain-prevention regimen-with the clinic's internist or chiropractor. Robledo Medical & Wellness Center does not offer prenatal massages.
Dr. Adam J. Cohen has spent nearly 10 years in private practice perfecting the art of surgical and nonsurgical facial freshening. A micro-laser peel is a fine-line annihilating alternative to a chemical peel. Instead of abandoning your visage to harsh, haphazard chemicals, it uses the computer-guided precision of lasers to gently remove outdated skin cells, banishing them to appearances on Vh1 nostalgia shows. For faces seeking a younger, softer complexion, Botox provides a fast-acting solution. Several small injections in the glabellar area (between the brows and above the nose) will temporarily relax the muscles responsible for forehead wrinkles, worry lines, and dread stripes. Results from this simple treatment can last 3–4 months. Call ahead to schedule an appointment.

Carmen Nicole's Spa & Laser eschews the use of credo blades and provides sanitary conditions by using UV-sterilized equipment and promptly providing germs with very tiny eviction notices. The spa’s six different massage methods encourage one-hour getaways, and airbrush tanning covers skin with streak-free base tans. Aestheticians also administer a variety of facials and medical treatments, such as microdermabrasions and targeted facials that combine massages and masks.
