“I met Carol when I moved to Chicago, I arrived at her office with the result of a bad filler injection from the west coast and needed immediate help! Carol was quick to assess and make a determination on what we could do to allow me to be presentable, when other establishments were not interested in touching the situation. Carol worked with me to make me feel comfortable with the procedure and the approach and she was able to make a bad situation manageable during an awkward time. Now – one year later, I look amazing under Carol’s handy work – she is a true artisan of the filler and botox world and knows how to make anyone look amazing. I could go on for days about what she has done for me, but what she can do for you is probably more important…I can’t imagine what could have happened had I not found Carol! Today I look natural, soft and expressive, which is what I believe to be key in the injectables arena, aging gracefully and having no one know what you do to look so good!”
- Gwen, Chicago
“I would like to say a very Special Thank You to Carol Donohue for how she cared for My Skin Treatment .Dramatic Results My skin looks fresh, Younger, and I look Natural but Younger. I highly recommend this Spa to everyone.”
“Firstly, this is an amazing place for beginners to the world of injectables. All my fears about looking “unnatural” were put to rest by the expertise and sensitivity provided by Carol. She checked-in with me throughout the procedure to see how I was doing and did her best to make me feel at home. Perhaps most importantly was her matter of fact attitude which is hard to come by in the cosmetic industry. This means she was not a floozy who looks like she’s had so much work done that she can’t see straight. I decided to buy a product by SkinCeuticals based on Carol’s lifetime use and how her skin looks at her age. Absolutely no pressure to buy products or additional services. The vibe I got was “let’s see how you like this and go from there”. Highly recommend this med spa and Carol’s artistry!”

“I have been to many medical spas in Illinois and Arizona. I love Patti and Carol. They gave me many great tips that no one bothered to tell me before and their skill sets are terrific. I am a raving fan now!”
“I never write reviews, and I mean NEVER. This is actually my first. I just love Patti and the crew at Enfuse so much, I had to make my affections public.
Patti has literally transformed my skin. She was recommended to me from a close friend and I went to see her about three years ago – my skin was a nightmare. I suffer from hyperpigmentation/melasma on top of the world’s most annoying chronic adult acne. She is so knowledgeable and such a straight shooter – when it comes to vanity some of these med spa professionals can “take you for a ride” but Patti genuinely wants to help and making a buck is never her bottom line. She has talked me out of some ridiculous products/procedures in moments of frustration/panic and always appeases me when I bring up products I am considering trying – at this point I would never make a decision about my skin (topical or otherwise) without her invaluable advice and/or recommendation. For the first time since I can remember, I am comfortable without makeup and it’s all due to one miss Patti Gran.
I have gotten PCA peels, IPL laser therapy, laser hair removal, broken nasal capillary laser treatment, and Vitamin B12 shots from Patti and with all of the above she is the absolute best.
Sidenote: I brought it a friend who wanted to try botox for the first time and Carol was amazing with her! She’s the in house “inject-able guru” – also a straight shooter which is appreciated.”
“Patti is the best. She made me feel comfortable, look beautiful and we even had a good belly laugh. I went to 2 other places and no-one gave me such clear concise explanation. Outstanding value!”

“I have been coming to Enfuse Med Spa for over three years now. Everyone has been so great here. I have had several treatments done such as PCA peels, laser hair removal, and Venus Freeze treatments. I most recently have had laser hair removal on my legs and bikini area. I love how smooth they are now and that I don’t have to shave anymore. The Venus Freeze treatment is also my favorite because it leaves my skin feeling tighter and so smooth!”
- Lisa C.
“Enfuse Med Spa has been a life saver! For years I have dealt with the burns and pains of waxing or threading, only to have it grow back all over again. But Enfuse has saved me from these experiences and has given me confidence knowing that I am hair free. I only regret not coming in sooner. I have had a great experience with Enfuse both in results and with the pleasant staff. Thank you Enfuse!”

Anyone who knows me knows I tend to be a perfectionist, which is exactly why I love the Beauty Industry. There is nothing I love more than seeing results, perfecting imperfections, and making someone feel beautiful in their own skin. I started in the industry as a hair stylist, but soon realized my passion was for Esthetics, and from there I went on to pursue my career in Esthetics at the Aveda Institute of Chicago. Not only did I go to school at Aveda, but I proceeded to work at an Aveda Spa as an Esthetician, where I specialized in facials, waxing, and lash extensions. With time, my passion for perfecting imperfections began to grow even more, which eventually lead me to the Medical Spa industry.
