A High-Tech Spa with a 12-Step Facial Comes to Ravenswood

Anisa Noor, a former skincare chemist, has opened NUR Skincare spa in Ravenswood (4809 N. Ravenswood Ave., nurskincare.com). With a design inspired by Sufi architecture, the clinic has an on-site “formulations lab” where Noor whips up homeopathic skincare products.

But things take a high-tech turn in the treatment rooms. Services include a skin analysis that employs UV photography and imaging technology to break down conditions such as inflammation and spider veins; other treatments include hyfrecation, which uses an electrosurgical device to destroy abnormal skin tissue. The signature service is the 12-Step High Tech Facial, which exfoliates the skin using mechanical and chemical techniques, then infuses it with 200 vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and enzymes.
