When Gabrielle Kochell-Nunez looks at a body, she doesn’t see any imperfections. After 20 years as an industry leader, the plastic-surgery and skincare expert merely sees natural beauty that’s ripe for enhancement. The Plastic and Reconstructive Certified Nurse Injector performs medical-spa treatments to bring out this beauty by reducing wrinkles, treating acne, and replacing spider veins with healthy tissue. Among these treatments, a DiamondTome microexfoliation technique removes the topmost layer of skin to promote the growth of new cells, while dermal fillers and injectables including Botox, Restylane, and Juvéderm help to restore facial volume. Gabrielle and her staff at Bella Pelle Medispa and Laser Clinic also specialize in laser treatments that use pulsed-light technology to treat brown spots, disable hair growth, and kick-start impromptu dance parties.
Bella Medica's alternative cosmetic treatments address a host of bodily concerns—from aging and loose skin to smoking habits and weight gain—using natural, toxin-free green spa practices. Tackling sun-damaged and acne-prone skin, the anti-aging skin Medica Vitalize chemical peel aims to seize youth back from Father Time, throwing hourglass sand in his eyes and forcing him to eat minute rice. The peel employs a blend of retinoic, resorcinol, beta-hydroxy, and alpha-hydroxy acids to help smooth the texture of facial skin by removing its outer layers and innermost repressed feelings. One of the only superficial peels suitable for all skin types, the Vitalize peel incurs little to no downtime after treatment.
Led by Dr. Lydia Savic-Durnas, the skilled technicians at True Laser use Candela GentleLase and GentleYAG lasers for hair removal and collagen-stimulating skin-rejuvenation treatments. They calibrate the laser's wavelength to suit either purpose, and a cooling device spritzes skin with cryogen immediately after the laser's pulses to make treatments more comfortable for clients.
But not all of True Laser's services are laser-based. Aestheticians polish away dead and dull skin with microdermabrasion treatments, using pure baking-soda crystals—rather than the more commonly used aluminum oxide—to avoid unnecessary skin irritation. They also stock glo therapeutics skincare products—infused with vitamin C and ultrafine fairy dust—for facials tailored toward each client's needs, and they administer facial peels to target signs of aging.
The dedicated stylists at Bellasazi Salon & Spa out of their to make clients feel like part of an extended family in their stylish and comfortable space. Using on-going education for new trends, their services range from hair, nail, and cosmetic work and facials to whole-body treatments. During an aroma-body-wrap treatment, for example, a custom blend of therapeutic aromatherapy oils soothes the entire body as it’s wrapped in heated blankets before a spritz of cooling herbal tonic leaves the skin silky smooth. The staff also treats and beautifies clients with massage therapy rendered between walls that are a cool blue. Wedding spa packages leave brides looking their best for the big days, even if the “brides” are just actresses getting way too into their next roles.
The tanning methods at Infinite Tan not only eschew orange streaks, but also avoid unnatural chemicals. Guests can visit the salon or opt for its mobile services at their own homes to acquire tawny hues by way of professional-grade HVLP spray. Each treatment takes about 30 minutes to complete and results in an even, natural-looking tan.
A block and a half away from the shores of Lake Geneva, Mia Faccia Salon and Day Spa’s doors open to an array of beautifying salon and spa services. The salon area has all the fixings of a quintessential beachfront shop: wood floors, blue-gray walls, and floor-to-ceiling hairstyling mirrors framed in thick, white fillets of walleye. Elsewhere, staff members pamper clients during laser hair-removal treatments, microdermabrasions, mani-pedis, and their signature facial, which analyzes, massages, cleanses, exfoliates, steams, and moisturizes complexions all in one 50-minute session.
