At Images Med Spa in Mokena, we are planning to start this spring off right. Winter always brings out a dry and irritated complexion. We want to leave winter skin behind and dive into spring with the best skin yet.
Spring is the perfect time to repair any damage that was caused by the winter. With the nice weather just around the corner, you might be swapping out all your layers for shorts and bikinis. This also means you can no longer hide dull skin and unpainted toenails. It is not too soon to start prepping the skin for that summer glow. Treat yourself to any of our favorite beauty skin treatments. Read on as we let you in on all our beauty secrets to prep for the warm weather ahead…
If your biggest concern is getting bikini ready… then we have got you covered on the best treatment for that. Everyone has stubborn fat somewhere on their body that just doesn’t seem to budge no matter how much you diet and workout. At Images Med Spa in Mokena, we offer CoolSculpting which is a non-surgical treatment that removes unwanted fat. This is the perfect treatment for any patient who loves their body and wants to sculpt it into the best shape. This treatment is safe, painless, and non-surgical which means there is no downtime! Coolsculpting is considered a “fat freezing” treatment. This body sculpting treatment was FDA approved in 2010. Scientists studied what happens to fat during frostbite. What they found was that when the fat is exposed to freezing temperatures it destroys it while the skin and tissues remain unharmed. The way that it works is one of our providers will apply paddles to the area anytime between 30-60mins. During the treatment, the paddles will become very cold and this is when the fat cells get destroyed.
Microneedling + PRP
Microneedling can treat just about any skin concern. At Images Med Spa in Mokena, this is our go-to skin treatment because it improves age spots, wrinkles, scarring, and many types of hyperpigmentation. But when you combine microneedling and PRP this is the MVP team of skin treatments. You might be familiar with this skin treatment through celebrity Kim Kardashian. As soon as she posted her “Vampire Facial” treatment to Instagram this treatment became a client favorite. Oftentimes our clients ask if this treatment is painful? The answer is no. It might be a bit uncomfortable for some but your provider will numb your face so you’re not in any pain. The microneedling will last up to 30mins long which is short and can fit into anyone’s busy schedule. After the microneedling part of the session is done our provider will draw blood which is the key component to enhancing the whole treatment. The blood is then put into a centrifuge and this separates PRP from other parts of the blood. PRP is then massaged into the treated areas of the face. The microneedling essentially works as the wounding part of the treatment since little micro punctures were treated to the skin. The PRP will penetrate the skin and collagen will repair the skin’s surface.
At Images Med Spa in Mokena, botox is one of our top treatments. Nobody really wants to admit they’re getting botox. But if you’ve noticed a significant improvement in one of your closest friend’s skin the answer is without a doubt botox! Don’t believe anyone that says there is magical retinol to completely remove those wrinkles. Because if that was the case we would all be using it! So this brings us to the question? How freaking good do you want to look and feel this spring? Botox is an FDA approved treatment that so many people are getting regularly. The best part about Botox is that we can get you in and out in no time. There is no need to recover so you can get back to your regular life minus holding off on your workout till the next day. So no need to reschedule your plans and within just 3-7 days you can show off your newly smooth skin. Botox can last up to 6 months but this depends on the person. Although other factors come into play depending on your age and how deep the wrinkles are this might require more maintenance. Another benefit of botox is that it truly is a preventative measure that you’re taking. We get so many questions on this one but getting botox can prevent new wrinkles from forming. The reason is that Botox treats the muscle under the skin and blocks the body from reacting and contracting these face muscles. Since botox stops the contraction it is preventing any future wrinkles from contracting and stopping those present wrinkles from deepening.
We can’t get enough of the Chemical Peel treatment. The chemical peel is designed to reveal a new beautiful smooth layer of skin and removing dry damaged skin. Sun damage from the summer and the lost moisture in the winter can dry the skin out. But a Chemical Peel will restore that hydration and lock in moisture to keep the skin thriving in any season of the year. There are 3 different peels: light, medium, and deep. After a consultation with one of our providers, one of the three peels will be recommended to treat your skin and concerns. At Images Med Spa in Mokena, one of our top estheticians often treats patients with the chemical peel because of the amazing long-term results!
This spring make all your skin goals come to life. Call today to book your complimentary skin consultation!
