Before laser hair removal, unwanted hair was given impossible brainteasers with the hope that follicles would pull themselves out in frustration. Celebrate swift hair removal with today’s Groupon: for $145, you get six laser hair-removal treatments on one small area at SpaForever (a $950 value). Today's Groupon is valid for the following areas: upper lip, chin, neck, underarms, sideburn, fingers, and toes.
SpaForever’s professional staff uses the Cutera CoolGlide laser to help diminish recurring body fringe from all skin tones and types in six 15-minute sessions. As chilly currents soothe the skin, beams attack and disable follicles in the active stage of growth, thwarting future fuzz. The treatment helps banish bristles with no subsequent downtime and only temporary redness and swelling. Fresh follicles may bloom and shed within the next week, during which patients should avoid plucking or waxing and opt instead to shave or snip each individual strand with gardening shears.
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.
