Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer (it can run anywhere from $2,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
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.
Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Leon Forrester Tcheupdjian has not only been in the lipo biz since 1981 but also has authored a textbook on the topic and developed several new surgical tools of the trade. Dr. T., who has dubbed himself "Lipodoc" and is backed up by Liposuction & Cosmetic Surgery Institute's team, specializes in all manner of fat removal and relocation, both by traditional means and with modern laser technology. He also wipes out wrinkles, veins, unwanted hair, and passé tattoos, and he is able to bring his treatments to many, since he speaks five languages, including Armenian, Arabic, and pigeon.
At Clear Vein Center, Dr. Yariv Cohen and his staff clear darkened veins from the skin with a trio of treatments that result in very little downtime. For sclerotherapy treatments, they inject an irritant into problem veins, which can cause them to fade in about three to six months. During phlebectomy treatments, they remove varicose veins through incisions tiny enough that no stitches are needed to close them. Laser treatments send light into veins via a thin fiber, which can cause the vein to seal shut.
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. This downtown spot is Dr. McAdoo's brand-new location, so Groupon users will still have to call the Rockford location to schedule appointments. Botox may cause serious side effects that can be life threatening, including problems swallowing, speaking, or breathing. Read all safety considerations for Botox here.
With haircare products by the likes of Goldwell Color and Color Glow, the team at Steven Edwards Color Group aims to erase all bad hair days on clients’ calendars. Whether delivering a quick trim, a drastic makeover, or a pink ombre, each stylist nurtures locks with the same passion and professionalism as the CEO of Hugging Puppies Without Smiling, Inc. They can even repopulate strands on barren scalps with noninvasive, virtually painless laser hair therapy treatments. Though their main focus is hair, the beauticians also perform relaxing massages, doll up nails, and refresh skin with facials powered by Glo Therapeutics products.
Chemical peels relieve visages from the effects of acne, fine lines, dryness, rosacea and more ($70 per peel), and microdermabrasion utilizes a crystal-free diamond-tipped wand to tenderly exfoliate old epidermal cells, revealing a fresh, healthy layer of skin ($75). Acupuncture has been shown to be capable of aiding the healing process for a variety of ailments, gently tapping into the body's energy channels with extremely fine needles (60-minute session including consultation, $75). Customized to meet your skin's individual needs, an organic facial uses fresh banana, blueberry, or pumpkin to bring out a glowing complexion ($70 for 60 minutes), and a para-medical facial uses powerful ingredients that can only be obtained through a physician, as well as treating you to a face, neck, and scalp massage ($70 for 60 minutes).
