If you’re looking to elevate your skin and your skincare routine you’ve come to the right place. At Images Med Spa in Wilmette our estheticians specialize in the skin. Whether you’re in the beginning of your skincare journey or lost in your current one, we’ve got you covered with all the right treatments and products to take your skin to the next level.
Self treating your skin can result in dissatisfying results and could further irritate the skin. Just because your favorite influencers post their skincare routine does not mean it will also give you the same results. The skin is unique and not one size fits all when it comes to purchasing the right products. Read on to learn more about skin, medical grade products, and treatments!
At Images Med Spa in Wilmette our providers have the trained knowledge on everything when it comes to the skin and skincare! Buying your skincare products at a drugstore or Sephora would be a waste of your time and money. Medical-grade products are all-natural ingredients and they contain the strength that store-bought products don’t. Medical-grade products don’t use fillers such as that long list of ingredients you always see on store-bought products. Fillers are used in products and that include a fragrance and this is used to cover up the smell of chemicals. Any chemicals in a product that isn’t approved by a doctor should not be placed on the skin because it could cause a harsh and negative reaction. When you invest in skincare products you want it to work but the problem with store-bought is they don’t contain the strength you need for long term results and are often pricy. We recommend you to come to see one of our skin experts at one of our nearest Images Med Spa. Our provider will do a deep skin analysis and set you up with a skin plan to set your skin up for success.
Sunscreen Is Key
Every expert says their number one anti-aging tip is sunscreen. SPF is the one part of your skincare routine that should never change! No matter the season SPF is a must-have in every regimen because you can get just as much sun exposure in the winter as in the summer. Even if you spend all your time indoors you still need to be wearing it. It might come as a shock to you but staring at a screen all day actually exposes the skin to a different light that is equally as harmful. The HEV light (aka blue light) that comes from computers, phones, TV and tablets can actually be worse than ultraviolet lights. It penetrates the skin deeper and provokes premature aging. Good news is there are no signs linked to cancer. These harsh lights on the skin can also cause hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and damage collagen production. Now you probably get the idea about why we are so passionate about SPF at Images Med Spa inMokena. We always rave about the medical grade SPF products we have to offer because they are pure ingredients, provide the best coverage, protection and are super hydrating.
Vitamin C is one of our go-to products at Images Med Spa in Wilmette. If it’s not yet part of your skincare regimen then you’re missing out. Because it is magic in a bottle! Vitamin C is the one product that truly brightens up dull looking skin. Vitamin C is an antioxidant. Antioxidants are an extremely powerful ingredient when soaked into the skin. In other words they are the detox the skin needs and deserves from all your daily activities. It treats uneven skin tones, rough textures, fine lines and acne scars. Vitamin C is a top seller for its price and results. If you are ready to take your skincare routine to the next level at an affordable price then set up your complimentary skin consultation. One of our estheticians can do a deep dive into your routine and skin to set you up for successful results. Vital C Anti-Aging Serum by Images Skincare is a fan favorite and we use it every morning in our skincare routines.
What is the Hype of Retinol?
If your skin concerns are fine lines, dark spots, uneven complexion, or breakouts then retinol incorporated into your nighttime routine is exactly what your skin needs. Regular usage will increase skin-cell turnover, enhance collagen production and reduce age spots. Retinol is a derivative of Vitamin A. It will prevent pores from becoming clogged and overall improve the way the rest of your products penetrate the skin. Our retinoids have to be prescribed by one of our providers so be sure to book an appointment to see which retinol would be the best fit for your skin type.
Skincare Routine Saves You Money
If you start earlier on with your skin journey you will have fewer skin problems to treat later down the line. Some serious skin concerns that might need more attention are acne, deep wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. This can save you a lot of money from getting frequent treatments or pricier products to address these issues. We highly recommend scheduling up a complimentary skin consultation at Images Med Spa in Hinsdale. That way our skin experts can set you up with medical-grade products and treatment plans.
Good skin is a lifelong journey that requires attention and maintenance. It should become a daily healthy habit for everyone. At Images Med Spa in Wilmette, we always call skincare a skin-investment because if you put in the care and effort by visiting an esthetician you will avoid future skin concerns. You can’t expect by avoiding washing your face in the morning and evening that you will have smooth glowing skin. The same way we bath ourselves, brush our teeth, our skin should also get the same daily attentiveness. Also by making it a priority, you will feel good and your skin will look even better!
