After studying the effects of encasing the 10th scientist's head in a plastic cube, nine out of 10 agree that a healthy human face needs oxygen. Maintain a majestic visage and a robust behind-the-skin scene with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get either a deep pore-cleansing treatment (a $150 value) or a SilkPeel DermalInfusion (a $125 value) at Alternative Medi-Spa in Lyons or Oakbrook.
Alternative Medi-Spa founder and director Dr. Daniel Rostein combats telltale signs of extensive existence with a host of advanced treatments, including mug-restoring medical-grade facials. First-timers first undergo a skin analysis designed to review epidermal history and determine the optimal course of treatment. The deep pore-cleansing treatment makes many renewing strides, gently stripping away the old skin cells while also shrinking pores and handing blackheads a polite but firm eviction notice. The SilkPeel DermalInfusion targets many of the same conditions, but also utilizes topical serums to remove the body's many toxins. Expunged of lingering troublemakers, the skin takes on a healthy, blush-like radiance.
Beyond meeting the needs of hands-on procedurals, Alternative Medi-Spa also carries a variety of products, many of which are only available through licensed physicians and aestheticians.
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.
