Wrinkles point to humankind's evolutionary history as an exceptionally furless descendant of the shar pei. Rid your skin of spare lines with this Groupon: for $129, you get 20 units of Botox at SpaForever (a $320 value).
Praised in the pages of Time Out Chicago and CS Magazine, SpaForever's registered nurse and a medical director smooth facial creases with FDA-approved Botox. Upon arrival, an attentive spasmith guides guests from the bright, minimalistic lounge back to a private treatment room. Steady hands inject the time-rewinding serum into furrowed foreheads, temporarily slowing down the hyperactive muscles that dwell beneath the skin's surface. After the 15-minute session, skin stays relaxed for up to four months, with full results appearing within a month. The treatment requires no downtime, allowing guests to schedule an appointment during their lunch break or between back-to-back episodes of Reading Rainbow.
Botox may cause serious side effects that can be life threatening, including problems swallowing, speaking, or breathing. Read all safety considerations for Botox here.
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.
