Though Allure's taupe walls and elegant furniture evoke bygone glamour, the cosmetic treatments offered by its staff champion futuristic techniques. With the guidance of medical director Rodney Berger, MD, injectors Rea Lorence, RN, BSN; Maggie Romano, M.M.S., PA-C; and Ron Dawson, RN, BSN banish wrinkles with Botox and facial filler injections, while other experienced techs wield hair-banishing and skin-correcting lasers and individually tailor facial services to address skin imperfections like blemishes or milk mustaches. Laser skin treatments are offered and banish hair from bodily areas and fade unwanted tattoos from sight.
Though Spa Face Nouveau won't literally grant you a new face, it will make your face feel like new. That's because the beauty hotspot treats skin issues including rosacea, uneven skin tone, and fine lines with specialized facials. The organic antioxidant facial soothes skin with vitamin-rich, earth-culled ingredients, and the acne treatment zaps blemishes with peptides, an oxygen treatment, and probiotic ingredients.
And faces aren't the only things that Spa Face Nouveau pampers. The relaxatorium also infuses the whole body with essential oils and heat that stimulates weight loss during the aromatherapy body treatment and slays stress and chronic aches with reflexology.
Fine lines soften and dissipate, wrinkles unravel and melt away, and body hair surrenders its bristly hold on the arms and legs inside of Alternative Medi-Spa. Founded and led by Daniel Rostein, MD, this medical spa staffs licensed aestheticians and laser technicians who specialize in helping clients look younger and feel more confident. The comfortable spa setting does as much to relax guests as the state-of-the-art technology does to embellish their most upfront features: SilkPeel machines, for instance, exfoliate with diamond heads that infuse the skin with vitamins and antioxidants in an exchange for toxins, which are sucked away by closed loop vacuums. IPL photogenesis treatments rely on pulsed lights to minimize fine lines and rosacea, and Cutera lasers perform skin-rejuvenation facials and remove unwanted hair from upper lips, arms, legs, and self-conscious kiwi fruits. The staff also offers facials for men and women, as well as peels and Botox cosmetic injections.
Located inside A Suite Salon in Oakbrook Terrace, SpaBlu Facial & Waxing is a beauty spa dedicated solely to skin services. Licensed aesthetician and owner Maryanne Efe, whose career has taken her as far away as Istanbul and to high-profile areas such as Chicago's Michigan Avenue, gently removes unwanted hair from the body and tightens pores in her private spa with facials that use Yon-Ka products.
In a relaxation haven perched just outside of the city, Eve Beauty Salon's stylists have spiffed up beauty-seekers for more than two decades, specializing in contemporary haircuts and bridal makeup. Hair whisperers stay abreast of the latest styling, cutting, and coloring techniques for men, women, and show horses alike. After locks luxuriate in a hot-oil head massage or lengthen with the aid of fused extensions, countenances soak up hydration and stoke a natural glow with the help of 24-karat-gold and rose-petal facials. Eve Beauty Salon rounds out its laundry list of services with eyelash extensions, henna tattoos, nose piercings, and henna tattoos of pierced noses.
To the staff at Renaissance Med Spa, a client's request for facial tightening never conjures images of a surgical procedure. Instead, the lateral-thinking staff would probably envision the Inmode fractora laser—a device that glides over skin to painlessly promote collagen production and fade wrinkles, acne scars, and Sharpie-drawn goatees. The spa offers nonsurgical solutions to other skincare woes, including laser hair removal, massage, and age-fighting dermal fillers. Each treatment is performed under the supervision of Dr. Carl Cucco, and the certified staff comprises registered nurses, nurse injector specialists, licensed massage therapists, and licensed aestheticians.
