Laser Med Spa's aestheticians beautify and heal clients using advanced products and technology. That technology allows them to perform treatments such as laser hair removal, pixel skin resurfacing, or VelaShape cellulite treatments. Whatever the service, the staff treats each client as an individual; they'll explain each step of the process in addition to educating you on preventative and restorative maintenance.
In addition to their advanced medical techniques, the team also stockpiles some of the industry?s most forward-thinking dermatological products. Arbonne products blend antioxidants and natural botanicals to cleanse and smoothen the complexion with products for men, women, and children. Additionally, the Glominerals line has been used on top stars at the Academy Awards; it's garnered universal acclaim for its long-lasting effects without clogging pores or morphing your face into a Richard Nixon mask.
With its glossy black tiles and ornate furnishings, the interior of Total Image combines the relaxing atmosphere of a contemporary salon with classic baroque styling. This balance between old-fashioned and modern elegance finds a worthy counterpart in the salon’s UV-free tanning and cosmetic services, which aim to imbue skin with a timeless beauty. The staff of experienced beauticians approaches each 15-minute spray-tan application with an uncommon concern for detail, evenly covering the skin with a DHA-based solution derived from sugar and beets. Across the salon, a dedicated team of makeup artists summons pink lips, tinted lashes, and cherry-red tic-tac-toe boards on forearms.

The menu emphasizes updo upgrades, but extends its aesthetic umbrella to include facial skincare, massage treatments, and manicure services. The glamorous gunslingers strap on bandoliers of products such as OPI, American Crew, Dermalogica, and Pureology to treat hair and hide, and other specialties include body wraps, waxing, and makeup application.
At Skincare by Melissa, an aesthetician and makeup artist with 15 years of experience helps enhance each client's appearance with facials, peels, microdermabrasion treatments, and waxing.

Cheryl Picha used to exclusively specialize in bridal makeup. As she added that wedding-day glow, dabbed away tears of joy, and blended foundations to match her subjects' individual coloring, she began to receive requests—the brides wanted these long-lasting, custom-blended formulas in their own makeup kits. This discovery led Cheryl to establish Custom Face, a group of independent makeup artists who specialize in applying individualized cosmetics to every unique face that walks through their door. Powered by the sultry hues of the Motives by Loren Ridinger line, the artists concoct foundations, bronzers, blushes, and eye shadows to complement their clients' skin tones. Visitors can either bring these formulas home or have their specialist craft a personalized look stunning enough to brighten any wedding, cultural celebration, or live-action production of The Smurfs they desire.
As a child, Michael Perich watched in awe as the women in his life enhanced their features and self-esteem by applying makeup. His wonder turned into passion when he became an expert in color theory and cosmetic techniques. As his talent grew, so did his portfolio, media recognition, and the pressure to sell, sell, sell. He found himself disillusioned. So in 2004, he opened Camp Cosmetics to return to his true passion—educating women and helping them feel beautiful and confident. Today, his Chicagoland store provides cruelty-free products made with botanical extracts and high pigment levels that keep reapplication to a minimum.
