Leah Chavie performs a treatment on a client.
Since founding her eponymous skincare boutique in 2010, medical esthetician Leah Chavie has become a go-to for non-invasive services—from laser hair removal to chemical peels—that promise instant results. This month, Chavie opens a second facility, the Leah Chavie VIP Center, to offer the same transformative treatments within a more private, retreat-like space.
The VIP Center caters to Chavie’s most elite clients: celebrities and local notables. The facility is situated very near the original location in Lincoln Park, but remains unmarked, offering a veil of privacy for its patrons. And, while Chavie relies on a team of highly trained skincare technicians at her original boutique, she will perform every service at the VIP Center herself.
The list of service options is endless—each unique and results-driven—and Chavie works with every client to assess which are best suited to the their lifestyles. A favorite is the Cutera Laser Titan skin tightening treatment ($500), which uses light to heat and heal below the skin’s surface, resulting in an ultra-enhanced skin tone that is noticeable after just one session. And who needs a mere manicure when Chavie offers the GenesisPlus laser light treatment ($150) that obliterates fungus and helps the nails grow more healthily. Of course, anyone can benefit from the Leah Chavie Signature Facial ($99), a deep cleansing treatment that balances the skin and extracts toxins. 2500 N. Halsted St., Lincoln Park, 773-360-1714
