If you’re looking to rejuvenate your body, mind and spirit in the New Year, look no further than True Medspa in New Lenox, where you can improve your look – and your outlook.

Located in the Presence Healing Arts Pavilion, True Medspa is under the direction of board-certified plastic surgeon Alan Chen, M.D., and offers the latest in reconstructive and cosmetic surgical options, as well as a wide range of spa services including injectables and laser treatments.

 “More than ever before, women are seeking medical spa treatments to help maintain and enhance their appearance, improve their outlook and boost their self-confidence” Dr. Chen explains. “And it is widely known that self-confidence is one of the foundations of good emotional and physical health.”

A recognized expert in his field, Dr. Chen trained at the University of Pittsburgh, one of the best plastic surgery residency programs in the nation. He is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, an active member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons – all very important factors when considering plastic surgery.

 “I believe women should feel good about themselves – physically, emotionally, in every way,” he adds.

And it shows!

His patients consistently rank him among the top one percent in the nation for patient satisfaction, according to Press Ganey, a leading healthcare research firm.   

“Because each patient’s needs and desires are unique, I develop a personalized treatment plan with realistic goals that can help her reach her objectives,” he added. “I feel privileged to offer women the latest techniques that will help them look and feel their best.”

For individuals interested in surgery, Dr. Chen offers a variety of techniques such as:

·      Breast surgery, including augmentation, reconstruction, lift and reduction;

·      Facial surgery, including face and neck lift, brow lift, eyelid surgery, nose reshaping, ear pinning, and face and chin implants;

·      Cosmetic body surgery, including arm lift, inner thigh lift, liposuction, body lift, tummy tuck, scar revision, and genital labial reduction; and

·      Hand surgery.


Non-Surgical Techniques to Help You Look Your Best

In addition to cosmetic surgical procedures, Dr. Chen and True Medspa’s registered nurses and licensed aestheticians offer a full array of advanced services to help patients look their best.

Broadband light (BBL) photofacials help improve the look and feel of skin that has aged prematurely as a result of sun damage and other environmental exposure.

“BBL therapy works by gently heating the top layers of the skin, helping to stimulate the growth of new skin cells and collagen,” Dr. Chen said. “This helps restore skin to a healthy, smooth, younger look and feel.”

BBL can be combined with other skin treatments and laser skin therapies for exceptional results.

Laser peels are another effective option to remove the damaged top layers of skin and make room for the growth of beautiful new skin. True Medspa offers Profractional, Micro Laser Peel and Tunable Resurfacing Laser skin treatments to minimize acne scars and pits, discolored areas, fine lines and wrinkles, poor skin tone and texture, shallow scars and sun spots, while promoting the growth of new collagen to firm, tighten and tone the skin.

“Injectables are also highly effective non-surgical treatments that correct and soften minor wrinkle lines,” he added.

Botox and Dysport injectables correct and soften facial wrinkle lines of the forehead, nose bridge, eyes and lips, while cosmetic fillers (Restylane, Juvederm and Radiesse) help restore lost volume and soften wrinkles and folds in the face and neck. Fillers are especially recommended for restoring facial and cheek depressions, vertical lip lines, sagging eyebrows, hollows beneath the eyes and jowls.

“Treatments usually take only 15 to 30 minutes, and results are immediate, lasting from six months to a year,” Dr. Chen said.

If you’ve been exercising and dieting with little or no success in reducing excess fat of the face, neck, arms, stomach, thighs and buttocks, True Medspa’s Exilis body contouring offers a non-invasive way to treat problem areas and balance them with the rest of your body.

“Exilis body contouring is an FDA-approved ultrasonic treatment to reduce fat deposits and cellulite, and promote collagen production,” he added.

It is most commonly used on the face, neck, arms, abdomen, upper back, sides, inner and outer thighs, and front of the leg above the knees. Exilis involves the use of sophisticated ultrasonic technology and controlled, adjustable heat to precisely target and break up deeper layers of fat, and shrink fat cells. It is pain-free, requires no anesthesia and no down time.

If you have unwanted hair on the face, neck, chest, back, underarms, legs and bikini area, laser hair removal is a safe, effective option. During laser hair removal, a high-energy light laser targets pigment inside the hair follicle, destroying it and stopping the hair from growing.

Other advanced spa services include laser vein removal and sclerotherapy for treatment of varicose veins.

“No matter what service you may be seeking, we can help you find an effective solution that fits your needs and your resources,” Dr. Chen added.
