As a mother of four, Rebecca Riser already lives an active lifestyle. In addition to keeping her family moving, she also helps her clients avoid sedentary lives by pushing them in a variety of fitness classes. She guides yogis through a series of poses and breathing exercises in yoga classes that improve strength, flexibility, and balance more effectively than wishing to be a professional ice dancer. In Pilates classes, she draws from her training with Pilates experts, including Mari Winsor of the famed Winsor Pilates method, to strengthen core muscles. As she does with her own pack of wee ones, she helps kids lay the foundations for a lifetime of fitness with children’s Pilates and yoga classes.
At Forever Young Cosmetic Spa, licensed cosmetic professional Gina Gheldof sweeps away worries about running mascara and hastily applied lipstick by enhancing features with permanent cosmetics. Gheldof blends the precise color a client desires before outlining eyes with dark tints, shading brows to soft browns, or filling in lips with the color of a flamingo's heart. In addition to applying indelible makeup to faces, Gheldof can repigment scars so they blend in with nearby skin. She also supplying temporary cosmetic services, applying faux mink eyelashes until eye fringe is thick and long enough for wearers to finally sport eyelid pigtails.
Radiance Medspa’s pore experts iron out wrinkly countenances and scrub away unsightly blemishes to reveal healthy epidermises. Clients can employ the skills and knowledge of Dr. Sonal Patel and Dr. John Belmonte and the rest of the experienced staff during the digital skin analysis, a consultative huddle during which two sets of facial pictures―one in normal light and one in ultraviolet light―assess the surface and subsurface conditions and determine whether a photofacial or microdermabrasion is more appropriate. The photofacial employs intense pulsed light to help safely remove such imperfections as sun spots or spider veins and replace them with such perfections as the number pi or a tattoo of 300 to symbolize a bowling score. During the microdermabrasion, a skinsmith trundles minute crystals across head hides to exfoliate dead skin cells and treat acne, superficial dark spots, and dry or patchy skin, burnishing nose platforms with a bright and salubrious glow.
AmazeHealth Weight Loss & Wellness's mission is two-fold: to fight physical pain and to customize wellness programs so they treat both physical and emotional health. To do so, its practitioners offer nonsurgical pain-management services such as acupuncture and pain psychology. They also perform nerve and muscle tests and rehabilitate injuries with onsite physical therapy.
Their wellness programs encompass everything from nutritional counseling to health-psychology counseling. One main priority is helping clients tackle obesity with physician-supervised weight-loss programs, which help clients lose weight in a safe, healthy way through custom diet plans and metabolic testing. The center emphasizes the importance of exercise and stress management—which leads some individuals to unhealthy eating habits—by including a yoga teacher on its team.
Dr. Vipal Arora of Metamorphosis Med Spa directs a nonsurgical symphony of cosmetic procedures to refresh and relax clients. He injects dermal fillers into façades to smooth wrinkles and crow's feet, and lasers guided by his hands simultaneously rejuvenate the skin and entertain the kittens carried in patients' purses. The doc's experience in photodynamic and light-heat therapies gifts visitors with noninvasive solutions for rosacea, hair reduction, and acne.
The impressive work of Body's highly skilled staff lineup, which includes doctors and medically trained personnel, has recently earned a shout-out in Time Out Chicago. Level uneven dermal terrain with a series of six VelaShape body treatments, which deploy a high-tech combination of radio frequency, infrared light energy, a gentle vacuum, and mechanical massage to tone skin's surface and reduce the circumference of the treated area. The VelaShape machine skates comfortably across the dermis surface, focusing its skin-perfecting attentions on your choice of areas including the thighs, buttocks, love handles, or abdomen. During the HydraFacial, a diamond-tip dry abrasion applies stylishly compressed coal to your expression factory, sloughing away dead skin without the bourgeois crystals used in traditional microdermabrasion. Next, a pore extraction draws out dirt and vagabond stowaways, followed by a nourishing mask that satiates starving skin. The 60-minute service concludes with a hydrating, free-radical-fighting serum finale. Body's chic interiors ensure eyes equal relishing opportunities for an experience as relaxing for the brain as it is for the body.
