When Seida Chapa opened her own salon, she staffed it with trained stylists who inject industry trends into their menu of services. In addition to haircuts and color treatments, they calm frizzy tresses with keratin and chemical straightening treatments. Spa specialists can give collagen a boost, expel fat, and improve circulation with Bioslimming wraps, and aesthetic specialists use glycolic-acid peels to help subdue wrinkles, dead skin cells, and large pores. Eyelash extensions and eyebrow threading make peepers pop, as do traditional and permanent makeup services. Staffers also primp hands and feet with mani-pedis, or craft custom wigs made out of human hair harvested from John Stamos's immortal scalp.
The staff and state-certified massage therapists at Heavenly Massage have left no stone unturned when it comes to their clients’ relaxation. At each Heavenly Massage location, the music, lighting, and decor all serve the same goal of enhancing peace of mind. Though massages—ranging from hot stone to lymphatic drainage—are the signature service, the staff also offers nailcare, skincare, waxing, and body treatments.
At Ideal Weight Loss, helpful technicians work with clients to develop lasting weight-loss plans using noninvasive methods—meaning no surgeries, medications, or shots. At the root of the clinic’s mission is the Ideal Weight Loss method, which begins with complimentary consultations and is nurtured via a partnership between staffers and patients. Working as a team, they attempt to set realistic goals, which can be achieved in part thanks to the provided gourmet protein diets. In addition to the four-phase long-term plan, the clinic also offers body-sculpting services such as wraps and LipoLaser.
Sugar Grove Health Center's skin-smoothing services revitalize and pamper the body's largest organ with personalized treatment. The center’s diamond-tipped Viora microdermabrasion tool combines exfoliation and suction to slough off dead skin cells and promote collagen and elastin growth, encouraging firmer, younger-looking skin to hang out on the epidermal surface rather than congregating in the body’s basement listening to folk records. As fine lines and superficial scars give way to a youthful, healthy visage, face-pampering patients will finally have the opportunity to rejoin the trick-or-treating circuit or order off the kids' menu without being assaulted by sidelong glances. The brief, noninvasive procedures may be repeated at short intervals with no downtime.
The medically supervised life coaches at Naperville Weight Loss Center help clients slim down with nutritional counseling, energy-boosting vitamin injections, and prescription appetite suppressants. They lay a behavioral groundwork for these strategies with private and group counseling sessions. The center offers its programs on a month-to-month basis for those who dislike contracts or who plan on fleeing the country within the year.
ThinFast MD's team of weight-loss specialists—including physicians, nurses, and dietitians—works together to design custom programs for patients of all sizes and ages. With focuses ranging from appetite suppressants to diabetes and nutrition counseling, they help regulate the body's intake of food and spotlight the healthiest choices for each patient's body. They also work with the Optifast meal-replacement program, which kick-starts weight loss with 16 weeks of nutritious meals, custom transition diets, and regular labs and monitoring as needed. Every patient receives a complimentary initial consultation so that the doctors can divine realistic goals. At the root of those goals is the recognition that the best reason to adopt a healthy diet and start exercising is not simply to lose weight or make a lazy pet jealous, but because it feels good and develops a sense of overall well-being.
