Let’s be honest; 2020 has been no walk in the park. From lockdowns to furloughs to missing friends and family, stress and anxiety have been at all-time highs. As we get ready to trash the old calendars, maybe it’s time to also get rid of this year’s mindset. Why not kick things off this year with a focus on yourself and how to get back to a place of physical and emotional wellness? Here are 3 simple suggestions to help you get started:
Make Resolutions You Can Stick To
There’s no reason on planning for a marathon if you haven’t even been out for a jog in 6 months. It has been hard to stay motivated when the gyms have been closed off and on nearly all year. Instead, make small resolutions that are not only easier to stick to but also things that you enjoy.
Don’t Feel Bad About Making Yourself a Priority
It’s good to be the kind of person who puts others before themselves. However, it is equally bad to neglect yourself in the process. Look, we’ve all had a rough year. And while everyone needs a friend that they can lean on, sometimes you need to take some time for yourself. Indulging in a few beauty treatments can go a long way in restoring that glow you had before the whole world got out of whack.
Find Time for Relaxation and Stress Relief
No matter what you enjoy doing, now is the time to make the time to do it. Whether it is going to the beach (social distancing, of course), reading a good book, or binging your favorite TV show that you’ve fallen behind on, make sure that you get a little more you time than you have been lately.
At Beauty and Body by Mia, we specialize in helping you look and feel your best. A trip to the day spa has nothing on the long lasting services that we offer. Get in touch with us to find out more about the many treatments we have to help you start your 2021 off on the right foot!
If you are feeling a bit unsure about stepping into shorts and a bathing suit in just a few months, you aren’t alone. It’s common for men and women to lack confidence when it comes to body image. However, you can feel great and look great by choosing to invest in a little self-esteem boost with Beauty and Body by Mia.
Our body treatments are designed to shape and sculpt areas you may feel self-conscious about, giving you the gift of confidence. Here’s how to choose the most effective medspa options for you.
If You’re Looking to Toss Your Razor
Hair removal treatments are an excellent option for men and for women to consider. If you have dark hair that you have to shave often, or if you are just looking to toss your razor and still have smooth skin, we recommend laser hair removal. Over the course of multiple sessions, you will notice results. Laser hair removal treatments work for almost anywhere on the body, including legs, chest, and bikini line.
If You’re Looking to Eliminate Cellulite
Everyone has cellulite and it tends to show up in a variety of places on the body. While you can’t completely eliminate cellulite, you can use treatments to eliminate the appearance. Lipomassage treatments are very effective and you can notice a clear difference after a series of six sessions.
If You’re Looking to Say So Long to Fat
Fat cells are stubborn and can remain on certain parts of the body even after healthy eating and cardio. Treatments like Liposonix and I-Lipo are designed to breakdown fat cells quickly, leaving the body to metabolize broken down fat. These treatments are done on targetted areas of the body, like the tummy or arms, and show fast results.
If You’re Not Sure What to Do
Some clients at Beauty and Body by Mia know exactly which treatments they want when they call to schedule an appointment. Others, however, know their goal but aren’t quite sure which treatment will get them to their desired result. In either case, Mia is here to guide you through your options.
Call our office today to learn more about your body treatment options. We’ll have you feeling extra confident in no time.
Your skin and complexion can take a beating in Chicagoland weather. Blustery winds in the winter and bright sun in the summertime can leave your face looking dull and drab. If you are ready to brighten up your skin, reduce signs of aging, and even reduce imperfections like hyperpigmentation, chemical peel treatments are an excellent place to start.
If you have never had a chemical peel, you may feel nervous about the process. When you choose to work with Beauty and Body by Mia, you can rest assured that we will put you at ease, make the experience comfortable, and give you the very best results.
Before Your Peel
Whether you choose a Retinol Vitamin C peel or a Glo and Go treatment, you will begin preparing for your treatment about one week prior to your appointment. You’ll be asked to discontinue any use of Retinols, Vitamin A creams, or Retin A about 5 days before your appointment. Skip shaving, waxing, or threading as well in the treatment area. Continue using your sunscreen and makeup as normal.
During Your Peel
During your appointment, you won’t feel any discomfort aside from tingling or slight stinging. Your appointment will be relatively short and we will be sure to leave plenty of time to review with your any post-treatment instructions. You’ll have a post-treatment skin care kit that you will use instead of your normal skin care regimen for 5-10 days. You may notice that immediately after treatment your skin feels smooth and tight; this is normal.
After Your Peel
Once you have returned home from your appointment, don’t wash your face for at least 8 hours. Your skin will likely begin to peel within 2-3 days. Everyone is different, and some people may not peel at all while others will peel around days 5-7. Never force the peel by picking or sloughing off the skin on your own.
Finally, for the best results, we encourage clients to schedule another treatment in three weeks.
If you are ready to experience the results from a professional chemical peel, now is the time to call Beauty and Body by Mia. Contact us today to schedule your appointment or talk about your options.
The new year is full of promise and is the perfect time to try something new. If you have ever wondered if a medspa treatment could be right for you, Beauty and Body by Mia has compiled some benefits and considerations to keep in mind before scheduling your first appointment. 2020 could be the year you fall in love with the results that follow a treatment with Mia!
Your Complexion is Dull
Chicagoland winters are harsh and your skin could be paying the price. Medspa treatments are designed to provide more noticeable and sustainable results than a typical spa-like facial. Try one of our BB Glow Express treatments to see your true complexion shine through.
You Aren’t Feeling Confident
At Beauty and Body by Mia, we believe all our clients are beautiful. However, some of them come to an appointment not feeling as confident as they would like to. A medspa treatment can be just the boost of confidence you need to pursue your promotion, start a new relationship, or feel like yourself again.
You’d Like to Give a Feature a Boost
Medspa treatments can be highly focused, giving specific facial or body features a boost. Make your lashes look amazing with a Lash Lift treatment, your lips look plump with a Hyaluron injection, or get rid of cellulite on your thighs with Lipomassage. Just call with your goal or your problem and let’s work together to develop a treatment plan just for you.
You Want to Try Something New
Our Medspa treatments are affordable, comfortable, and successful. Even better, you can find the services of Beauty and Body by Mia throughout Chicagoland. It’s the perfect way to try something new this year, and give yourself the gift of confidence to carry throughout the next twelve months.

The holiday season is here which means your social calendar is about to get much busier. Between work parties and get-togethers with friends who are back in town for family festivities, you want to look and feel your best. Besides running out to buy a few new outfits and updating your makeup bag with a new power lipstick or trendy eye shadow, you can invest in your self-confidence this season with any of these beauty treatments with Beauty and Body by Mia. You’ll feel great and look great for all of your upcoming events during the holidays and beyond. It’s the perfect time of year to treat yourself to some self-love!
Hyaluron Pen Fillers
Hyaluronic acid is naturally made by your body and contributes to youthful-looking skin. However, as we age, our natural production of hyaluronic acid decreases which can lead to less plump facial features. Fortunately, a Hyaluron Pen Filler treatment with Mia is non-invasive and efficient, giving you plumper features almost immediately. Don’t worry – there are no needles here! Our technique delivers the filler through pressure, not injections.
Our clients love any treatment that takes away fine lines and wrinkles, and our Rezenerate Treatment has outstanding results. You can feel confident that your Rezenerate Treatment will combat not only fine lines and wrinkles but also scarring and will help to even out your skin tone. Treatments are safe and comfortable, and you’ll notice the differences sooner than you may expect.
Glo & Go Peels
Winter weather can be especially damaging to your skin, which is why you can feel like your complexion looks much duller in these next months. However, our Glo & Go Peel treatments are designed to give you a glowing complexion no matter the conditions outside. You’ll enjoy this treatment because it is safe and painless. More importantly, you’ll love the suppleness and glowing complexion you feel afterward.
Feel Your Best
Not quite sure which treatment may be best for you, your goals, or your budget? That’s okay! Many of our clients begin with a phone call to chat about what they are looking for; we are here to listen and develop a treatment plan that will help you feel your best. Call Beauty and Body by Mia today to schedule your treatment, before your holiday events begin.
Have a few spots on your body that you just can’t seem to tone up? No matter how much you work out or eat right, there are bound to be a few areas on your body that aren’t getting with the program. It’s normal, but that doesn’t mean it makes you feel more confident when you pull on your favorite clothes. Fortunately, you can get a little extra help thanks to technology that literally freezes – and eliminates – fat cells.
Here’s what you need to know about Cryoskin and Coolsculpting treatments before you make your first appointment.
What is Cryoskin Treatment?
Cryoskin treatments are versatile, giving the client and the technician the option of choosing slimming or toning choices. Slimming freezes and destroys fat cells from the target area while toning blasts the appearance of cellulite by increasing circulation and your body’s natural collagen production.
Beyond being versatile and quite effective, Cryoskin treatments are also easy. Your technician will use a tool that becomes cold, moving it around your target areas. Some clients choose places like their tummy or thighs, while others may choose their lower back. Nearly any area on the body can benefit from this targeted approach with Cryoskin. Treatments are quick and painless, leaving fat cells frozen and dead for good.
How is it different from Coolsculpting?
Cryoskin is considered the newest version of fat-freezing technology. Coolsculpting treatments were the pioneer, but these treatments are now antiquated. Clients who endure Coolsculpting treatments still get fat cells frozen, but the process is more arduous (and annoying). While Cryoskin treatments require only one instrument, clients sitting through Coolsculpting treatments need to sit with paddles suctioned to their problem areas for hours.
How can I get Cryoskin in the Chicago suburbs?
Cryoskin treatments are effective, easy, and will fit your budget. If you are ready to schedule your first treatment, call Beauty and Body by Mia. With years of experience working with clients throughout the Chicagoland area, I can work with you to make sure we give you the treatments you need to feel confident as you walk out of my door.
