Summer is in the air and we all want to look and feel our best. Sure, you could get a haircut, or your nails done. But why not consider turning back the clock? And what better way to look and feel your best than a visit to your local spa and indulge yourself? But with such an array of options, how do you choose? Easy: you want fast, effective, non-invasive, and zero down time. And that means Ultrasound Therapy (Ultherapy).
So What Is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is an FDA-approved treatment that utilizes ultrasound technology to lift, tighten, and tone your skin. Without being invasive, this treatment reaches deep into the dermis, far deeper than other non-invasive therapies. The ultrasound frequency stimulates collagen production, which causes the skin to tighten and, in the dermis layer, helps the creation of fibroblasts — a matrix of fibers that support new cell growth and improve the skin. These same fibroblasts help your skin cells replace and regenerate, leading to more firm, subtle, and youthful-looking skin.
Because this therapy uses ultrasound, your provider can see the area she is treating, ensuring the treatment energy reaches the correct areas, bringing the most benefit. Ultherapy is most often performed on the face, under the chin, and the neck, but in fact it can be used anywhere you have lax skin.
Sometimes Ultherapy is likened to a non-invasive facelift, but this is misleading. Ultherapy is quick, safe, often requires only one visit, and comes with no downtime. For anyone not ready to go under the knife, Ultherapy is the perfect alternative.

Winter takes a toll on the body. It dries out the hair, the skin, and leaves you feeling exhausted. So, when spring rolls around, you are eager to get out and move about. Why not change how you feel before spring? This winter is long and is only going to keep going for a while. Why not take the time now and help your skin feel better? There are several ways of doing that. Here are some of our favorites.
If you want your skin to look radiant, then you want to start with BB Glow. This simple treatment can give your skin a softer feel and a new, glowing look. Your pores will be smaller, your skin will be smoother, and you will look healthier. It’s a great option to feel your best!
Plasma Skin Tightening
For those who are worried about looking older than they really are, plasma skin tightening can really help. It works on loose skin all around the body, and gives it a firmer feel and appearance. Try it on your knees or elbows, your eyes, or even your chin! The treatment leaves you feeling better for months at a time, and it is FDA approved.
Anyone wanting skin that looks younger and has a plumper appearance should consider carboxy therapy. It is quick and gives you results in a matter of minutes. It even gives the bonus that it can help detoxify the skin during the therapy, leaving your whole body feeling better when it is done. It is also an FDA-approved therapy.
When your goal is firmer skin that is tighter and has more tone, then you want ultherapy. It works to give you a younger appearance anywhere on the body where the skin is looser. It is also FDA approved, and can give you a benefit long after the therapy is done.

There are so many minimally or non-invasive beauty therapies available today for the first time. Long gone are the days of anything short of surgery having a noticeable and lasting effect. With some of these treatments you can even target specific parts of the body for improvement.
Perhaps you want something to firm up loose skin around your neck or chin. Some folks may be interested in getting rid of cellulite in a problem area. Still, others may be looking for something to brighten their skin tone and make it look and feel more youthful. Here are a few examples of some of the many exciting options available in this field:
For those who were interested in a more vibrant and youthful appearance, the BB Glow just might do the trick. It is a micro-needling treatment which smoothes out wrinkles and minimizes the appearance of pores. Additionally, the hyaluronic acid helps to give the skin a more plump texture and radiant glow. The effects of these therapies tend to last several months.
People seek out body treatments many times for things that dieting and exercise don’t seem to help with. This includes small but stubborn amounts of weight such as 5 or 10 pounds. Love handles, muffin tops, upper arm cellulite, as well as thighs and buttocks are all common problem areas. Hair removal is another example.
Therapies like Liposonix use heat to melt cellulite away. Radiofrequency therapy can reshape fat more evenly across an area of your body. UC treatments melt fat down into a liquid which exits the body in the same way as all other liquids. Each of these is non-surgical.
Various Other Wellness Therapies
There are several other treatments that Body by Mia may be able to offer you, depending on what it is that you are looking for. Mesotherapy can help with everything from fat removal to facials to re-growing hair. Get in contact with us today to find out more about how we can help you achieve the look that you see when you look in the mirror.
As the fall season begins to bloom in full, the coming drop in temperatures and increase in moisture will wreak havoc on many people’s skin. Skin and enhancement treatments, whether at home or in-office aren’t a one-size fits all solution. There are also no single, all-in-one regimens that are suitable for day in, day out use all year round.
After all, the requirements of your skin vary greatly from season to season, as well as by region and climate. But for the specific topic of today’s post, we want to look at MesoCapil injections and the effect they have on the skin in general but also on broken capillaries in particular.
Do You Still Use the Same Outdated Skin Therapies or Regimen?
One of the biggest problems is that we tend to get stuck in routines that once worked for us. However, we continue on with them even when they are no longer producing results. It’s understandable because as humans, we are creatures of habit. But you wouldn’t go to a dentist that practiced techniques and treatments from the 1970s! So why are you using products and therapies from a decade or two ago?
Benefits of MesoCapil Injections
It would take an entire other article to cover every benefit from this form of treatment. However, the main advantage is that it corrects the damage and causes of broken capillaries which can lead to numerous issues with your appearance. Bright, red, blotchy spots may be present in small or large sizes all over your face. These simple injections can take care of the problem.
In addition to that, MesoCapil treatments also do a fantastic job at smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines without creating that traditional “frozen” look of conventional Botox therapy.
If you think that this type of therapy is something that might be a good choice for you, our family here at Beauty and Body by Mia is always ready to help. We would be glad to answer any questions you have about not only this treatment, but any of the many others that we also offer. Give us a call today to learn more.
Women and men flock to use medspa and salon services to do more than just look their best. They also find they feel more confident and even more relaxed after a session with their favorite aesthetician. It’s no surprise that people across Chicagoland are missing their spa and salon services; it’s a form of self-care.
Having an experienced aesthetician at your side can be priceless. Your aesthetician gets to know you and your needs, offering services they think will be worth the investment. If you’ve ever wondered about working with an independent aesthetician, as opposed to an aesthetician that works solely at one medspa or salon, here are the major benefits you can enjoy.
A More Positive Experience for you Both
An independent aesthetician can be the best addition to your skincare and body care routine. You are supporting a local professional who can quickly take their services anywhere, giving you flexibility. Further, independent aestheticians are excellent at their craft, using their knowledge to benefit you during your relationship. You never have to worry about getting to know someone new or having to explain your skin or body challenges to a new face.
Benefits of Multiple Locations
Having an aesthetician that can travel between locations is a great asset. It can allow you to get an appointment at a more convenient location instead of driving out of your way, or choosing to set an appointment in a location that is on the way home from work. Not being tied down to one location or a brick and mortar store can also offer more freedom to get creative with the services available to you.
This is where Beauty and Body by Mia excels. She is incredibly experienced and offers top of the line services to her clients. She is available in two locations which makes her more accessible, offering you the flexibility your busy schedule needs.
There is no better time than now to get your skincare routine started, give Beauty and Body by Mia a call today.
The coronavirus pandemic has affected all of us and our daily life. I miss seeing and serving all of my clients! I know that when things feel hard or difficult, sometimes the best solution is routine. I’ve been diving into my own personal care routines daily, including skincare.
How have you been taking care of your skin while at home? It might be easy to let this piece of self-care take a back seat, but now is a perfect time to indulge in some pampering! I’ve been missing my clients and can’t wait to see everyone in person again, but in the meantime, let me help you get inspired to get your skin glowy and gorgeous.
Now that many of us are spending most of our time at home, makeup can be optional, and that’s a great thing for our skin! You can make the most of your lighter makeup routine by using some extra time to set a solid foundation of good overall skincare. Make sure you continue with your skincare routine for health; though it’s tempting to cut corners, it’s essential that you keep up with cleansing and nourishing routines that you know will keep your skin at its best.
Favorite At Home Skin Care Products
If you’re looking to indulge in a treat to help bridge the gap until you can visit us again, I highly recommend Rodan + Fields products. They’re a brand I trust, and, as a bonus, you can order them to be delivered directly to your home. I especially love the Soothe products, since they help with sensitive skin or uneven skin tones.
DIY Skin Treatments
If you’re looking for some great treatments to try at home, there are great resources on using oil for cleansing, new ways to optimize your face masks, and more. Make sure you take care when trying a new technique; though it can be fun, make sure that you don’t try anything too harsh or abrasive, particularly if you have sensitive skin. To stay safe, if you are trying a new product, do a test on a small patch of skin first.
Until we’re able to meet in person, make sure to stay connected! As soon as we are able, we’ll begin seeing clients, so stay in touch to make sure you set an appointment with me as soon as allowed.
