Summer beauty problems just got easier to solve thanks to these 4 new spa treatments.
Strut your stuff on the beach, at the pool or on the tennis court.
Blast Unwanted Belly (and Bum) Fat
Diet and exercise is a sure-fire way to win the battle of the bulge, but sometimes you need something a little quicker. To the rescue: Zeltiq, a new device offered by Dr. Amy Taub, in Lincolnshire. Targeted cold therapy is applied to treatment areas, crystallizing fat cells and causing them to die; later, they are flushed out of the body by natural processes. The process is pricey, but it’s the only method of its kind that’s approved by the FDA.
$1,400 per treatment
Advanced Dermatology, Lincolnshire
Baby Got (Beautiful) Back
Breakouts don’t discriminate, and a wayward back or arm zit is oh so unattractive. To zap pesky pimples, try the “Bacial,” an 80-minute treatment that targets your back, chest, face, arms and even feet. The “facial for your back” uses Skin Authority’s line of standout products, and leaves your skin feeling softer, smoother and acne free.
$155 for 80 minutes
Dana Hotel Spa, Chicago
Toss Your Mascara
If you love the look of mascara-laden lashes but loathe reapplying amidst daily swim and sweat routines, get ready for the newest lash enhancement treatment, LashDip. Devised, created and formulated by two Chicago aesthetic geniuses, this process creates round-the-clock mascaraed lashes for six weeks. Lashes appear “done” morning, noon and night—regardless of how wet they get.
Perfect Reflections, Northbrook
Get Sun(less) Soaked
Spray tanning is so yesteryear. What’s new? A heated, sunless airbrush tanning system that travels to you, literally. For women who love the look of sun-kissed skin, sans the sun, it’s time to “EVOLV.” This system creates custom color for skin types using natural scents and ingredients. Voila, gorgeous skin in a snap.
Prices vary; to locate an EVOLV technician who will come to your home, call 312-720-0217 or visit Evolvsunless.com
