DEERFIELD — When Jennifer Klein and her husband passed a building for sale at the corner of Deerfield Road and Milwaukee Avenue three years ago, they knew they found their dream home for a medical spa.
That’s how NuAge Medical Spa in Riverwoods came to be. Klein and her husband, who is a doctor, wanted to bring high-end medical spa services to the Riverwoods area, and now offer a blend of spa and cosmetic procedure services, all under the eye of a medical doctor.
“Medical spa is you get some spa features, so you can still get a massage and still have the spa atmosphere where it is soothing,” Klein said. “But there are medical services that only a doctor can provide.”
Those services include high-percentage chemical peels, Botox injections and even prescribing a popular lash-growing serum.
With winter upon us, Klein said it’s a perfect time to repair any summer damage to your skin.
“A lot of them come in for the photo rejuvenation for the sun damage in the winter, because they are not out in the sun,” Klein said. “Most of the procedures are good for the winter because they are out of the sun. Your skin just feels dry and dull and you just get all that dead skin off.”
Another popular wintertime treatment, Klein said, is microdermabrasion, to get “dead winter skin off your face.”
“It’s like sand blasting,” Klein said. “We use the crystal ones; it’s a really nice procedure.”
Klein said it was important that NuAge provided only the best products for sale, and went through a rigorous search for the best brand – the Rhonda Allison line. Klein said she even tested every product before putting it on her shelves.
“We don’t believe in having 75 different product lines,” Klein said. “We decided to have a very minimal line. I just wanted a few different things, and I wanted them to be very good.”
As far as the safeness of cosmetic procedures, Klein said almost everything is “virtually safe.”
“Most of the things we do here are non-invasive,” Klein said. “It’s pain-free. The lasers are fool proof and we have a doctor on the premises at all times.”
At the end of the day, Klein said she and her family take pride in owning a small, family-run business.
“We’re here to be a part of the community,” Klein said.
