The Moxi is one of our favorite treatments at Images Med Spa in Lincoln Park for multiple reasons. You can receive this treatment anytime in the year and where some treatments are best for particular seasons. The new laser is top notch technology that can provide amazing results just after one treatment. Some might even compare this treatment to the Halo. The Moxi is a quick treatment and can take from 30-60mins. For most of us we don’t want to miss out on our social plans and this treatment has little no downtime! So don’t worry you won’t have to experience any FOMO. Another reason we love this treatment is because it is for everyone and treats multiple skin concerns! But Moxi is especially beneficial for an uneven pigmentation, texture/tone, sun damage, and skin aging. We recommend this treatment for long-term results and as part of your skin routine. It’s important to keep up with the maintenance otherwise the results will not hold up to its full potential. This laser treatment is more aggressive than others and that’s why it brings quick beautiful results!
Celebrities Go-to Treatment
Microneedling can treat just about any skin concern. At Images Med Spa in Lincoln Park, this has become one of our most popular skin treatments 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 fan favorite for everyone. Oftentimes our clients ask if this treatment is painful? The answer is no. It might be a bit uncomfortable for some but your provider can numb your face if you are worried about any discomfort. The microneedling will last up to 30 mins 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 Lincoln Park, botox is one of our top treatments. Have you ever considered Botox for signs of age? 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! Botox is an FDA approved treatment that 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.
Start With This Treatment
A peel is the perfect skin treatment if you’re looking to reduce acne, scarring, enlarged pores, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage. This treatment uses strong chemicals to restore the skin’s surface and overall complexion. There are different levels of the peel which is an important factor to consider before choosing which level. The different levels of peels include light, medium, and deep. We recommend discussing your options with one of our estheticians before using the medium and deep peel because they are a bit harsher on the skin. During the chemical peel, an exfoliant will be applied to thicker areas of the skin and then we will move to thinner areas of the skin. After the peel, a cool compress will be applied to the skin to relieve the skin from tenderness. A peel works by lifting the dead skin cells off the top layer of the epidermis and then encourages the body to go through a natural healing process of producing more collagen. Post-treatment and days following the will be a bit red. But after that your newly transformed skin will appear with a smooth and bright complexion.
