Repêchage is teaming up with the Migraine Research Foundation and spas nationwide to raise funds and awareness in honor of June’s Migraine Awareness Month. Did you know 1 in 10 Americans (10% of population) suffer from migraines? Amazingly, the cause of the disease is still unknown and about half of all migraine sufferers are never diagnosed.

These shocking statistics have motivated Lydia Sarfati, founder & CEO of Repêchage, to create a special treatment called Repêchage “Sweet Relief,” which includes a scalp massage and lymphatic face massage to help relieve pain, boost the immune system and promote the body’s own healing mechanisms. Leah Chavie Skincare Center and Boutique is one of the spas eager to support the cause.

Leah Chavie Attends the Stanley Paul – Raelene Mittelman Scholarship Benefit Honoring Candace Jordan

Kontinent Media Group featuredRead more

Original article posted by Kontinent

Chicago, April 25, 2013) The invitation read the event start time for the Stanley Paul – Raelene Mittelman Scholarship Benefit as 6:00 pm, but a steady stream of guests were already making their way into the tony Gold Coast private club, twenty minutes beforehand. Word had quickly spread this year’s fundraiser was the largest crowd ever to attend (almost 400), and all the rooms at the Casino were being used for seating. Looking to snag a prime table in the main room with this year’s honoree, Candace Collins Jordan, guests were staking out their seating long before the program was set to start.

Guests were given a shiny black pebble and asked to cast their vote for one of the top five finalist to help decide the winner of this year’s scholarship. Two design students from Columbia Collage of Chicago and three from Dominican University were this year’s top five.

Chatter could be heard among the guests as they enjoyed wine and passed beverages; “Which design did you vote for”…”I’m not saying”…”I haven’t decided yet”…”It was between two”…”I liked”… and more.

At the door to the main room Candace greeted everyone and — in typical Candace style – everyone got a huge smile and a hug. Candace was the picture of couture in a steel-blue strapless pant ensemble by local designer, Barbara Bates. She completed the look with Van Cleef & Arpels, Flowerlace necklace and earrings set, a fleurette motif of cascading diamonds in elegant white gold. A large portrait of Candace, created by well-known fashion illustrator, Rosemary Fanti, rested on an easel at the entryway. Guests were invited to inscribe their congratulatory comments and well wishes around the perimeter of the artwork. Debi Lilly of A Perfect Event had created floral arrangements of white hydrangeas giving the venue a light, airy feel.

Leah Chavie in the Running for Best of Chicago by CitySearch

Leah Chavie and her team are honored to be selected by CitySearch to be in the running for Best of Chicago! We hope you feel the same and we love your support!

Help support us in the running for Best of Chicago here

Here are what a few people have been saying on CitySearch:

Shari D:
‘As an Aesthetician myself I don’t trust many people to touch my skin. Leah and her team have given me treatments and techniques to really address my acne head on. By using 3 different kinds of lasers she was able to break apart old scar tissue, destroy bacteria, and really improve the texture! I think the V Peel is amazing and easily takes a full year of age of the face and neck and is worth every penny.’

Erica Bethe Levin:
‘There’s a reason every local celeb and media hotshot goes to Leah Chavie to get gorgeous. She is the best of the best and offers luxe treatments that no one else can even touch. You’ll walk out glowing, radiant and even a bit lighter (if you opt for her Thermojet treatment).’

Kimberly Peiffer:
‘Citysearch Editorial Review. Esthetician Leah Chavie is the kind of adorable, hands-on, bubbly person who merits a gold star. And with glowing skin like hers, it’s no wonder she has clients knocking down her door to be pampered. After years in the business, Chavie branched out on her own and opened Le Crème Skincare Boutique, a quiet little refuge in Lincoln Park. Step inside the Feng Shui space and suddenly it no longer feels like the city, rather, a soothing respite where one emerges with glowing skin and a renewed sense of self. Sit back in one of several rooms and let her go to work with her signature Silk Peel Dermalinfusion, laser hair removal, vein therapy and photo facials. Her spa is the only place one can get the Biologique Facial Remodeling (a.k.a. facial Pilates) from France.’
