As a physical therapist with his own private practice, Hand & Stone founder and chief operating officer John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of the rapidly growing health and wellness industry. After a period of careful research and planning, John decided to create a spa based around convenience and affordability?Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa.
Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 20 states and four planets. The spa?s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and hair-removal services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week. Each location adheres to a traditional spa aesthetic with soft lighting, heated treatment tables, and plush linens.
Cosmetic Enhancement Clinic draws natural beauty out of their clients like water from a sponge. Assisted by aesthetician Kathy Kelly, who has worked at the clinic for more than two years, the team works to enhance clients' existing features with services such as permanent makeup, facials and microdermabrasion, and eyelash and brow tinting. For more in-depth corrections, they can help clients camouflage scars to create a uniform complexion or remove tattoos with lasers, as opposed to just wearing an arm cast for the rest of your life.
Brow Spa narrows its scope to a few specified treatments which its technicians perform with precision and attentiveness. Their service menu focuses primarily on the face—they offer eyebrow threading and eyelash extensions, as well as facials and microdermabrasion treatments, the result of which is a face that can turn passersby's heads and give bobble heads whiplash. They also offer waxing both for the face and body.
?How would you describe yourself?? ?What is your ideal look?? These are some of the first words new clients hear from owner Frances of Amore Francesca Salon & Spa. Frances takes the time to get to know her clients during meaningful conversations to ensure that their new ?dos will reflect their personality and beauty goals. These conversations can be heard swirling through the chic black-and-gray salon by her team of new and junior- and senior-level stylists, each armed with high quality MoroccanOil and Schwarzkopf products. As stylists revamp ?dos with precision cuts, ombre hair coloring, and special-occasion updos, nail technicians dole out no-chip and regular manicures to add the finishing touch. To complement the full-service salon, a full-service spa keeps skin looking effortlessly healthy with airbrush and UV tanning as well as waxing services.
Inside Ultimate Exposure Tanning Centers' Chicagoland locations, a full lineup of UV- and spray-tanning equipment infuse skin with a healthy summer glow year-round. Individual sessions in the automated spray-tanning booths?such as VersaSpa?or UV beds gild bodysuits for nights on the town, and unlimited monthly packages fashion a continuous golden hue previously only available to sunbathing satellites. The salon stocks a variety of tan-accelerating lotions from Swedish Beauty, Australian Gold, and Designer Skin, which deepen bronze hues and moisturize skin to fashion a long-lasting radiance.
With more than 30 years logged as a board-certified surgeon, Dr. John V. Belmonte, Jr., brings a clinical rigor to Radiance Medspa's laser, radiofrequency, and dermal-filler treatments. Resident scientist Dr. Sonal Patel and the nurses and licensed aestheticians under Dr. Belmonte's supervision lay out various treatment options for each client to choose from. The office’s digital skin-analysis system allows them to further customize treatments using detailed information on the skin's texture, areas of sun damage, and bacteria in the pores.
