Four of Ways to Rejuvenate Your Skin After a Long Winter

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.

BB Glow

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.

Carboxy Therapy

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.

Ultherapy

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.

Discovering Exciting New Health and Physical Wellness Treatments

Discovering Exciting New Health and Physical Wellness Treatments

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:

Facial Therapies

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.

Body Therapies

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.

Fat Dissolving Mesotherapy Injections

Fat Dissolving Mesotherapy Injections

There have been some incredible advancements in the field of cosmetic medicine in the last several years. Beauty and anti-aging treatments are offering better results and lasting longer. One of the most amazing procedures has to do with fat loss.

Mesotherapy injections can provide quick and dramatic improvements in weight and body shape in a short amount of time. It can also be a part of a more significant overall transformation by developing a simple treatment regimen.

What Exactly Is Mesotherapy/LipoDissolve?

Mesotherapy uses FDA approved medications such as Phosphatidylcholine deoxycholate (PCDC) to dissolve fat and cellulite. These practices have been in effect in France and other parts of Europe for years and are just now becoming more popular here in the United States.

How Does It Work?

Initially invented in the early 1950s and used as a vascular disorder treatment, after that, it was discovered that with slight variations, it could be used as a chronic pain medication, hair loss deterrent, and ever a few others. More recently, it has proven to be highly effective in fat removal.

Fat Dissolving Mesotherapy Injections

The procedure is straightforward; multiple tiny micro-injections are performed in the target area. The medicine then hardens the fat cells in the body, causing them to break and shatter. From there, they are removed from the body through its natural processes.

What Are Some of the Areas It Works On?

Mesotherapy can be effective on several different parts of your body. One of the great things about this treatment is the fact that the most common problem areas can usually be addressed. Here are just a few of them:

  • Thighs
  • Love handles
  • Upper arms
  • Double chin
  • Lower and upper abs

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.
