TLC Laser & Skin Care Center's technicians curate their menu of beautifying offerings with a keen eye for the latest technology, employing an arsenal of specialized lasers to resurface faces, remove hair, and increase clarity during PowerPoint presentations. They also offer Coolsculpting to help freeze the fat off. Meanwhile, laser-free treatments refine visage surfaces with skin-soothing facials, an array of Botox, Dysport, and other injectable wrinkle-wrestlers, and customized applications of professional skin care products.
Dr. Phillips, a board-certified general and vascular surgeon, taps into more than 20 years of experience to oversee Lumi?re Laser & Vein Center. His team of consultants, medical assistants, and aestheticians harnesses waves of light to reduce unsightly veins and revitalizes mugs with signature facials or photofacial treatments. Using FDA-approved lasers, they also dispatch nail fungus, reduce irksome body hair, and reveal buried treasure with an intricate series of mirrors.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Tracy McCall uses her healing hands to heal at Lake Country Plastic and Hand Surgery. She performs procedures that ease the pain of carpal tunnel syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, and Dupuytren's contracture.
Though hands are the center's specialty, the skilled staff also perform other aesthetic and plastic-surgery services, such as skin-rejuvenation treatments performed by experienced aesthetician Cari Kavetschanky. Cari helps each client create a custom skincare regimen to address his or her beauty concerns. When creating these regimens, she takes the time to consider clients' budgets, lifestyle habits, time constraints, and preferred utensils with which to smear cream on their faces.
Certified in plastic and general surgery, Dr. James McAdoo transforms fading facial façades into enchanting visages at both of his clinic locations. Botox treatments safely flatten furrows by paralyzing wrinkle-causing muscles with miniscule injections of toxins, leaving skin as soft and smooth as a kitten on a Segway. 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.
The fabric experts at Capitol West Cleaners preserve matrimonial wardrobes with wedding-dress cleaning, and dry-clean, launder, alter, and repair vestments, delivering them home safely gratis. Experienced cleaners pamper gowns, gently scrubbing away spots, stains, and crumbs left over from crowd-diving into wedding cakes. Pants ($5.50) and shirts ($1.75) enjoy old-fashioned water-based laundering, and suit pants ($5.50), jackets ($6.95), two-piece suits ($11.95), dresses ($10), and winter jackets ($14.95) relinquish stains and odors with a gentle dry-cleaning. Clean clothes are ready to be picked up in one or two days, and same-day pickup is available with morning drop-off to keep unsupervised shirts from partying the night away.
Wisconsin-born Dr. David Janssen began practicing medicine in the Fox Valley over twenty years ago. Since then, he’s dedicated more than two decades to helping his patients look and feel their best with innovative cosmetic and reconstructive surgery techniques. Together with fellow board-certified surgeon Dr. William Doubek and Dr. Marc Serret, Dr. Janssen creates custom treatment plans based on each patient’s needs and desires. In fact, patient input is an integral part of the process, whether the doctors are shrinking silhouettes with non-invasive CoolSculpting laser liposuction, or identifying and fighting the underlying causes of migraine headaches. They treat veins large and small with waves of thermal energy and localized laser beams, while Botox and Dysport touch-ups fight sagging skin and fine lines.
Like the palace of a Venetian doge, or the garage of an eccentric billionaire, the Renaissance Center is built in the image of a Renaissance-era Italian villa. Sporting a picturesque colonnade, peaked clay-tile rooftops, and a façade of sand-colored brick, the center greets patients with old-world charm as soon as they step out of their cars. Inside, parchment-colored walls, cozy furnishing, and potted plants sit in full view of the center’s most stunning feature: a recreation of the Sistine Chapel ceiling.
