Using a variety of specialized lasers and high-quality skincare products, experienced aestheticians help rid their clients of unwanted wrinkles, acne, cellulite, and hair. To that end, they offer a service menu of Botox, custom facials, and i-Lipo as well as laser hair removal and electrolysis.
Dr. Kent Botsford employs his 32 years of dental experience to renovate mouths by evaluating not only the patient’s smile and bite but also their muscles and posture. To do this, he uses tools such as digital x-rays, intraoral cameras, and conscious sedation, which frees patients from anxious jitters and accidental biting. The kindhearted dentist also evaluates underprivileged patients by volunteering his services at Head Start and Samaritan Free Care Clinic, and when not perfecting smiles, he enjoys teaching his chocolate lab how to floss.
Absolute Therapeutic Spa LLC’s experienced massage therapists coat bodies in soothing strokes during a range of muscle-mending therapeutic services. Swedish massage harnesses the power of long, gentle strokes to help limber-up ligaments and maintain tendons' elasticity. The therapist's trained hands traverse musculature with pinpointed kneads and gliding rubs that aim to reduce tension as effectively as taking a catnap inside a stress ball. During the 60-minute relax-a-thon, clients can receive a revitalizing boost in circulatory and nervous-system functioning, rebooting patrons’ bodies and minds to their original stress-free factory settings.
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.
Sprawling across three sections of a centuries-old building, Salon Modé & Daydreams Spa welcomes guests into a homey, historic space with hardwood and tile floors, an etched tin ceiling, and a warm fireplace filled with flickering logs. Patrons relax in salon chairs while stylists refresh their hairdos using scissors, dye, and Aveda products based on pure flower and plant essences. In more-private settings, massage therapists aim to relax the mind, body, and soul. They glide their hands along tense musculature and incorporate aromatherapy to help clients calm their minds or hot stones to further soften knots. The beauty pros also focus their attention on smaller areas, such as tinting eyelashes or pampering faces with a selection of facials.
In Domani Salon and Spa's foyer, a chandelier among earth tones exemplifies the feelings the staff wishes to inspire: lavish beauty mixed with a pure serenity. On the left, a café dispenses coffee, smoothies, juices, and sandwiches, and on the right, rows of beauty products stand at the ready. And directly in between, a front-desk coordinator awaits to lead clients to a styling chair or treatment room. Owner and master stylist Tricia Voigt—alongside her team of hairstylists and spa technicians— pampers women, men, and children alike with services including haircuts, coloring, massages, and facials. Domani also curates a variety of wedding packages so brides can focus on the moment instead of worrying about hair, makeup, or glitter stains.
