The rays of the sun. The flicker of candlelight. The soft glow of fireflies on a summer evening. Humans are attracted to natural radiance, even in the metaphorical sense. While faces may not actually have the power to emit light, it's no surprise that phrases like "he was beaming" and "she lit up when she saw him" often find their way into the English language. The aestheticians at Medical Arts Unlimited's Advanced Skin Care Medical Spa understand the desire to keep the fires of youth burning bright. Ranging from facials and chemical peels to microdermabrasion and Botox injections, their results-oriented clinical treatments take years off of features while simultaneously delaying further signs of aging. In addition to their traditional treatments, aestheticians also equip beautifying technologies, including IPL and DioLite lasers, to keep skin healthy with the aid of the safest science. They also extend their handiwork's effects with a full range of products designed for the everyday maintenance of at-home use.
Owned by Dr. Omar Dalloul, Purity MediSpa uses modern aesthetic procedures to solve common beauty woes and boost client confidence. The staff's arsenal of high-tech equipment includes the Pain Free, Hair Free laser hair-removal system, the versatile Alma Lasers Laser360, and a microdermabrasion tool that destroys impurities such as blackheads, lessens appearance of age spots, sun damage, and acne scarring, and buffs away dulled skin cells to reveal the younger-looking skin underneath. The staff also performs less flashy procedures, including facials infused with such low-tech and natural ingredients as seaweed and vitamins.
The doctors of chiropractic at Chiro One Wellness Centers put patients at the core of their efforts. Though the centers are spread the country, with locations in Illinois, Kentucky and Texas, the company's mission remains to help patients and their surrounding communities reach their maximum potential through a combination of customized chiropractic treatment plans and education. This approach doesn't just assuage painful symptoms—it's also designed to uncover the root causes of ailments such as whiplash, insomnia, headaches, carpal-tunnel syndrome, and more.
In their efforts to improve communication in the central nervous system by addressing nerve interference, chiropractors provide spinal adjustments and supplemental treatments such as cervical traction, therapeutic exercise and balance-strengthening wobble boards. Their practice extends far beyond the wellness centers, however: community-outreach efforts take them to health fairs, offsite spinal screenings, and complimentary workshops on a range of wellness topics. They also devote themselves to nonprofit work with several organizations, including The Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Greater Chicago Food Depository. At the Chiros Care Free Wellness Center, they examine and treat Chicago's homeless and HIV-positive population, fueled by their belief that everyone should have access to expert preventive care.
The "ZaZa" in ZaZa Salon and Day Spa is a portmanteau of its owners names: Helen Zarovsky and her son Leo Zarovsky. But the 3,500-square-foot facility is more than a fusion of the Zarovsky's 20 years of industry experience; it's an amalgam of their devotion to quality education (they employ a team of stylists and European-trained aestheticians and nail technicians). Each stylist takes their specialization to an art-form, focusing on cuts, colors, or styles. ZaZa Salon and Day Spa combines their experience with impeccable customer service. This means that each client is greeted with a complimentary drink from the espresso and juice bar, and that every service is performed in only the most sanitary environment.
Recessed lighting and golden, mod hanging lamps illuminate the dark wood salon floor, complementing the warm color scheme and orange accents throughout. It's here that stylists draw from their top-notch arsenal of Oribe, Kevin Murphy, Moroccanoil, and organic Davines products to revamp tresses, as nail techs redo digits with OPI and essie shades or apply no-chip and UV gel manicures. In private treatment rooms, aestheticians reach for vitamin-rich Dermalogica and Intaglio skincare formulas to brighten complexions, and use regular wax, blue Azulene wax, sugar wax, and threading to remove hairs from sensitive skin and fragile peaches.
The staff at Ritacca Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa aims to balance both art and science in each surgical and nonsurgical procedure they perform. Whether patients seek tattoo removal, a face lift, vein therapy, or lip augmentation, the specialists outline custom solutions tailored to their clients' wishes and their skin's fear of falling. These plans accompany detailed information about each procedure to help patients to make the best health decision.
Decked in Renaissance–inspired art, stately wood accents, and plush leather furniture, the medical spa of Ritacca's upper level focuses on bringing inner beauty outward. The spa's skin specialists use lasers, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion treatments to help to reverse the signs of aging without subjecting faces to hours of Saturday-morning cartoons. Customers can further enhance silhouettes with expert waxing, gentle facials, and applications of permanent makeup.
