All of European Wax Center's waxing services are performed using the center's exclusive hard wax. This wax, made in Paris from pure, all-natural beeswax, is designed to evict even the toughest tuft, while caressing skin as gently as a feather tickling a feather. During a full face wax, water-wick your skin with friendly follicle extraction on the cheeks, chin, upper lip, nose, front of neck, and side burns, creating a smooth canvas to highlight artfully arched brows. Or opt for the women's or men's full arm wax, which wipes out wool from shoulders to knuckles, finally displaying treasure map tattoos long hidden by fuzz.
At Aloha Waxing Company, your regularly-scheduled waxes will become a breeze. With Hawaiian music playing in the background and tropical décor, you may even feel like you’re on vacation—not an easy feat when going for a Brazilian. Aloha emphasizes three vital aspects of their business: gentle care, skilled expertise, and a high standard for cleanliness. All estheticians undergo a rigorous process in which they are trained to be as efficient as possible while still being accurate. Aloha even uses pain reduction techniques that have been researched at MIT. Lisa, the owner, is especially skilled, having been trained with Brazilian-born waxing specialists, and will make sure your experience is as pleasant as possible. For those who want to make the investment in smoothness, Aloha Waxing Company also offers laser hair removal for both men and women.
If experience were measured in pounds, the laser technicians at Advanced Laser Clinics would be lugging around an aircraft carrier. Across the country, they have performed more than 250,000 treatments, banishing hair, acne, veins, and wrinkles from the body like so many itchy berets. During hair-removal sessions, technicians use the heated energy of the Lumenis LightSheer laser to destroy hair at the root as a built-in ChillTip prevents clients from experiencing excessive discomfort. The LightPulse Skin Renewal system reduces the appearance wrinkles, and other laser treatments work to eliminate surface veins and irritating acne that won't stop singing “MMMBop.” To ensure patients' safety, a medical doctor supervises technicians and oversees procedures such as aluminum-oxide crystal microdermbrasion, which is performed by medical aestheticians armed with skincare products from Cellex-C, Decléor, Dermalogica, Dermablend, and Dr. Brandt.
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.
A team of doctors and staff of trained laser technicians and certified aestheticians send clients back into the world free of the imperfections that previously obstructed their image goals and self-confidence. Their services include skin-tightening and skin rejuvenation treatments to help clients look younger, iLipo treatments to help them look slimmer, and hair-removal services to help their skin look softer and less appealing to yetis looking for mates. The team also offers laser peels, plastic surgery, facelifts, and wrinkle-reduction treatments, all with the singular goal of improving the way folks look and feel.
