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.
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 team at Ageless You Med Spa helps clients realize their aesthetic goals with a host of beautifying services. Lasers eradicate unwanted hair and foot fungus, and intense pulsed light powers complexion-clearing photofacials. Other high-tech services include brown-spot, tattoo, and spider-vein removal. Ageless You also offers traditional spa services, such as chemical peels, facials, and body wraps.
At Enhancing Light Cosmetic Laser Centers, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kenneth Dembny oversees a team of fully certified staffers who beautify physiques with laser-guided services. Using VelaShape, an FDA-approved procedure that fuses infrared light, bipolar radio frequencies, and mechanical massage, technicians can contour away cellulite. Photofacial skin rejuvenation, meanwhile, resurrects a youthful glow in faces marked by signs of aging, such as fine lines, sun spots, and mouths locked in place after blowing out candles on a birthday cake. Tattoo removal lifts unwanted ink, microdermabrasion exfoliates away dead skin, and skin tightening reduces wrinkles and saggy areas. A portion of the clinic?s profits go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, which funds breast-cancer research and raises awareness of the disease.
TLC Laser & Skin Care Center's technicians curate their menu of beautifying offerings with a keen eye for the latest technology, employing an arsenal of specialized lasers to resurface faces, remove hair, and increase clarity during PowerPoint presentations. They also offer Coolsculpting to help freeze the fat off. Meanwhile, laser-free treatments refine visage surfaces with skin-soothing facials, an array of Botox, Dysport, and other injectable wrinkle-wrestlers, and customized applications of professional skin care products.
