Are you new to the med spa experience? Let’s chat. Below, we’ll briefly cover the basics of med spa care and review a few of the experiences waiting for you at Chapter’s Chicago location. 

What Is a Med Spa? 

A medical spa, also known as a medspa or med spa, is a health and wellness center that offers spa treatments and nonsurgical holistic medical services. Med spas are typically staffed by registered nurses and certified estheticians, and Chapter Aesthetic Studio is no exception.

Most med spa treatments belong to one of these categories:

  • Skincare
  • Hair removal
  • Body sculpting
  • General wellness 

The expert treatments you receive at a med spa like Chapter Aesthetic Studio go beyond what’s possible at home or in a traditional spa. You’ll also receive the sort of personalized service that’s rarely available in a traditional medical office. With the med spa experience, you get expert staff and advanced treatments, all with the cozy feel of a day spa. 

Here are a few of the most exciting med spa treatments you can book today. 

Skinwave Facials

Who wouldn’t love a facial with results that are both instant and long-lasting? That’s what you’ll get with a Skinwave facial. A single treatment leaves skin looking clean, dewy, and radiant. 

During a Skinwave facial, a certified esthetician performs medical-grade exfoliation to unclog pores and remove dirt and oils from deep beneath your skin’s surface. Your personalized medical-grade facial may also include toners, cleansers, and steam to thoroughly clean and hydrate your skin. 


CoolSculpting is a fat reduction procedure that involves bringing fatty tissue to a freezing temperature, thus causing fat cells to break down. CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical option for those who want to improve the shape of their most stubborn fatty areas but don’t want to undergo a major procedure such as liposuction. 

CoolSculpting is useful for the body zones that tend to carry stubborn fat that doesn’t respond well to exercise and diet, such as:

  • Above the hips (love handles)
  • Thighs 
  • Upper arms
  • Buttocks 
  • Lower belly 

CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved procedure that’s been performed millions of times. The process involves using suction to hold a pocket of fatty tissue in place. Then, the tissue is kept at a temperature of 30–40 degrees for between 30 minutes and one hour. 

Because fat freezes more easily than skin or muscle, CoolSculpting can target fat without harming other tissue. After experiencing a frozen state, fat cells begin to break down. Fat loss results are typically evident within a few weeks or months of treatment. 

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a less painful, longer-lasting alternative to shaving, waxing, and plucking. The procedure involves directing a highly concentrated beam of light at the skin. The light strikes hairs, is converted into heat energy, and then damages the follicles beneath the skin. This prevents hair from regrowing for an extended time period. 

During a laser hair removal session, most people experience a light stinging sensation, similar to being snapped with a rubber band. Compared to the intense pain of waxing or the skin damage from shaving, laser hair removal is a breeze. 

A course of treatment usually consists of six to eight sessions, with several weeks between appointments. During this time, hair in the treated area gradually falls out and stops growing back. Results last for many months or even years. 


Botox is an injection of botulinum toxin used to address various conditions like migraines, neck spasms, and bladder problems. Most often, Botox is used in the face to reduce wrinkles. 

The most commonly used Botox injection zones are:

  • The forehead
  • Crow’s feet (outer eyes)
  • Between the eyebrows 

In these areas, Botox works by reducing muscle contraction. This causes wrinkles to iron out, resulting in skin that appears more youthful and smooth.
