Though many plastic surgeons take pride in the way they can sculpt the body, not many are actually accomplished sculptors like board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Anthony Geroulis. He strives to weave the artistry of his sculptures into each procedure and leave his patients with a natural look, and has garnered media mentions from the likes of Chicago Magazine and North Shore Magazine. He directs Skinmedispa, a fully accredited medical facility and division of the North Shore Center for Facial Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, with this philosophy as well. His team of licensed aestheticians, clinical technologists, and certified therapists, on the other hand, wield only noninvasive treatments to improve the look and feel of the face, skin, and body. Their services boost collagen production, balance pigmentation, and give skin a glow rivaled only by an active volcano that has recently fallen in love or swallowed a flaming Cheeto. Free parking is available.

The book Necessities: Chicago said Massage Therapy Center of Winnetka has Chicago's best massage therapists. Past clients include a member of the 2010 U.S. Olympic bobsled team and several White Sox players during the 2005 World Series. For a highly targeted muscle melting procedure, opt for trigger-points therapy, which identifies irritable muscles and improves their attitudes with masterful manual compression. Shiatsu, which is also known as acupressure, is an Eastern method of applying finger, palm, and thumb pressure to points on the body that are impeding the ki (or energy flow) and causing pain, stress, and chilly blood. Massage Therapy Center of Winnetka's menu also offers a classic Swedish knead, prenatal massage, and procedures such as neuromuscular therapy and performance-enhancement sports massage to treat and prevent pain caused by muscle exertion and falling pianos.
Recognized by Chicago magazine for their excellence in both short haircuts and color, Pascal Pour Elle's style masters redo 'dos and refresh visages with a parade of salon and spa services. Those who are tired of picking boa constrictors out of their overgrown follicular jungles can get their locks trimmed into fabulous new fashion. Next, the noninvasive microdermabrasion facial pits gentle exfoliation against weary old skin cells in an unfair fight fixed by dermal gamblers. The vulnerable cells are then hauled away in a suction process that also promotes the growth of healthy newborn replacements, leaving skin with a smoother texture and more even tone.
Licensed doctors Tim Erickson, Lori Portnoy, and Eric Eickhorst eschew needle-based acupuncture, instead easing myriad ailments with gentle electrical stimulation, fingertip pressure, and metallic balls. After a consultation to determine the appropriate treatment itinerary, patients receive full spine x-rays and an exam. Next, a brief relief treatment stretches spines to help reduce muscle spasms and aches while preparing patients for International Crabwalk to Work Day. The acupuncture treatment usually lasts fewer than two minutes and helps to attack causes of corporeal discomfort, such as ulcers, abnormal blood pressure, and headaches.
