Flashes of light from the Cutera CoolGlide laser illuminate SpaForever’s rooms during laser hair-removal treatments. The device works on all skin types and features a cooling tip that keeps skin from overheating as patrons sink into heated, padded treatment tables outfitted with personal iPod speakers. Some patients may experience redness or swelling following the session. Treatments for the bikini area and neck only cover areas of about two fingers’ length and width, so be sure to bring a set of Arsenio Hall’s fingers. All treatments take 15–30 minutes, depending on the area.
Spa Forever's lounge greets visitors with floor-to-ceiling windows, white walls, and a few plush couches. The aesthetic reinforces an approach to wellness and comfort that is both down-to-earth and elegant, a combination admired by Time Out Chicago and Chicago Social, which praised both the spa’s “unpretentious” atmosphere and its “awesome heated beds.”
Whether administering facials or dealing the death blow to unwanted hair with the Cutera CoolGlide laser, the aestheticians and massage therapists sit down with clients before each appointment to chat about their services, letting each guest know exactly what’s coming down the pike. From there, the pampering practitioners calibrate their services, modifying them for each guest’s needs. For instance, aestheticians fine-tune every step of their signature Forever facial—complete with double cleansing and mask—to correspond to visitors' complexions. They also use hypoallergenic products from AquaDerma and Dermalogica for people with sensitive skin. Alternatively, massage therapists tweak the hydraulic pressure on their robotic fingers to deliver all manner of massage, including Swedish aromatherapy, tandem massages that feature two therapists, and ashiatsu performed with the therapist's bare feet.
