Chicago >Avanti Skin Center
“really liked the atmosphere, modern but comfortable.”
“The staff is very accommodating and will take the best care of you.”
“Avanti's prices are great also, as they seem to be doing a special every month.”
Comfortable and friendly! This is a great spa.. Unfortunately I had PAIN-FULL hair removal performed AT A DIFFERENT PLACE prior to learning about Avanti, so I cannot speak to their pain-free hair removal services. What I can speak to is the physical spa itself, the customer service and the facials! The decor is very inviting for a medical spa. It feels warm and cozy, like you're being wrapped in your favorite blanket. The staff is very accommodating and will take the best care of you. The environment they create for me during a facial is so relaxing and the facialist is incredibly sweet and very conscientious of my time and "space" needs - meaning whether I want to have a conversation or just chill out. It's also very conveniently located right on North Ave at Sedgwick. I usually drive and always find a parking spot on North Ave. within two blocks of the spa. There is also a parking garage across the street but I've never had to use it.
I can't believe how "pain free" it really is!!. I am going to start this off by saying that I have had laser hair removal before. I won't name that place, but I did go to Avanti Skin Center knowing information about the whole process. I live in the loop and I was willing to travel 100 miles if that meant that I would have a better experience than I did in the past. My review isn't going to talk about how great their location is or about how cute their decor was or anything like that (it was nice though), I strictly want to talk about the laser hair removal. I went in for a consultation and the girl explained to me their system and how it works to be "pain free". From having laser before, I didn't believe it when they told me that it would be pain free, that is until she did a test spot on me. After hearing all their info I was sold. Anything could have been better than what I had in the past. I started my treatments that day! And it literally took 10 minutes ( it was my bikini area). I couldn't believe how cool it was.... pain free AND fast. Avanti's prices are great also, as they seem to be doing a special every month. I guarantee those of you that read this, you will be more than pleased with your experience there.
Unbelievably pain free hair removal- it almost tickles!.
This place is amazing! When you enter, you are not only greeted by the friendliest staff, you are enveloped by modern comfort and style. The treatment rooms are super clean and the staff are very knowledgeable. What I cannot speak enough about is how pain free the pain free hair removal is. Seriously- NO PAIN. And did I mention how quick it is?
They offer massage, facials and carry a number of skin and make up products including Skinceuticals.
I work in the city and take the train, Avanti Skin Center is located right off the Sedgwick Brown/Purple line stop, so it's super easy to stop after work in the evenings.
It really is Pain Free!. Great new Spa in Old Town! Facials, Microderm, Peels, IPL treatments for sun damage. I really liked the atmosphere, modern but comfortable. The have Massage on weekends and carry Skinceuticals which is hard to find! I just tried the "pain-free" hair removal and was pleasantly surprised. They weren't kidding it really doesn't hurt. It's right next to the train and they are open till 7PM so I can catch them on my way home from work. Try the Mineral Make up if you have time, they blend it for each person individually, looks like a fun little mess.
We upgraded our laser for better results. It is not as pain free as the old laser but it works really well. We use Cutera now and no longer use the Aesthera. Beware of places that use Aesthera, it takes twice as long for the results and that can add up. Plus Cutera works on all skin types. Beware of those places that say it works on Blonde, Gray or Red hair. It does not.
