hough it was developed more than 1,000 years ago in India, threading has found a modern niche due to its eco-friendly reputation and gentle treatment of sensitive skin. Practicing this method for the last 24 years, the trained threaders at Eyebrow MakeOver use a three-step technique to ensure brows flatter each client’s face shape and default emotion. Technicians start by outlining a desired shape for patron approval, then use a thin cotton thread to capture stray hairs at the root, yielding results that are more precise than with waxing and less likely to produce ingrown hairs. Technicians then train their clients in the use of eyebrow products, so brows continue to look full and even between threadings.

At each AmeriLaser Center and AmeriCosmetic Surgery Center in Des Plaines and Downers Grove, experienced laser technicians and aestheticians, under a team of supervising doctors, take time to listen to each client?s skincare needs. Building this rapport helps the staffers to craft custom treatment plans that may include non-invasive procedures like laser hair removal, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and dermal fillers, as well as invasive procedures like liposuction, breast augmentation, face lifts and tummy tucks. Their most celebrated treatment may be noninvasive skin tightening, which uses bipolar radio frequencies and magnetic pulses to help to firm lax skin caused by aging or extreme weight loss, and it has earned ringing endorsements from The Biggest Loser winner Michael Ventrella, WWE pro wrestler Lisa Marie Varon, and a cherry tomato that sat untouched in Elvis Presley?s fridge for years.

Brow threading may be the raison d'être of the aestheticians at Eyebrow Expressions, but the team also ably branches out to de-fuzzing other parts of the body, including services for legs, face, and intimate areas. Inside the salon, which is located within Meijer, the aestheticians can also remove hair with threading, an ancient Indian technique that uses a long, wound cotton thread to zip hair away in precise lines without irritating the skin. Because the process is so gentle, the team can thread lips, chins, necks, and delicate vestigial wings.
