Is a PDO Thread Lift In Your Future?

Is a PDO Thread Lift In Your Future?

Have you been looking for a procedure to help you look younger, but you do not want to go under the knife? Then you may be the ideal candidate for a PDO thread. This type of thread is great at helping you look younger but does not require a scalpel. The thread we use dissolves slowly on its own, but while it dissolves, it triggers your body to create new collagen to keep the look longer. The benefits of these procedures are vast. Let’s take a peek!

What Is a PDO Thread?

Many people are familiar with thread lifts. This is when we take a thread of dissolving material and use it to anchor a lift to one or more areas of skin, often on the face. So, what makes a PDO thread different? It is in the thread itself. PDO stands for polydioxanone, and it is the material the thread is made from. In this case, it is a type of polyester. During the procedure, we use the PDO thread and use it to lift up problem areas, suturing it in place when the desired effect has been reached. Over the next 6 months, the thread dissolves, leaving a collagen-rich area of skin behind.

The procedure is quick, taking less than an hour. The downtime is minimal, and your results last from 6-18 months, depending on how much collagen your body produces. You can look naturally younger in very little time, and feel great for a long time. PDO threads have been used for over 40 years very successfully, and they can help you look and feel amazing, too!

3 Ways of Starting the New Year with Self-Care

3 Ways of Starting the New Year with Self-Care

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!

Choosing Effective Body Treatments

Choosing Effective Body Treatments

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.

What to Expect From My Chemical Peel Treatment

What to Expect From My Chemical Peel Treatment

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.

Would a MedSpa Treatment Work for You?

Would a MedSpa Treatment Work for You?

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.
