"Cannot say enough good things about this place and Julia! If you don’t know Julia, you better get to know her ASAP! I was interested in getting Botox so I made an appointment with Julia consult. Julia thoroughly explained everything and showed me exactly what to expect. Julia’s approach is too keep it conservative at first to achieve the look you are going for, especially for your first time and this made me feel so comfortable because I wanted a natural look. After my injection, Julia followed up with me to make sure I was satisfied and let me tell you, I AM MORE THAN SATISFIED! Julia is so accommodating, constantly fitting me in wherever she can. I live in the suburbs of Chicago and I will continue to travel out to LP to see Julia!"- S.B. / Yelp / Feb 24, 2021
"This is a long overdue review of LPA. From facials to laser - they are just wonderful. Every person on their staff has been incredibly helpful and kind. They are reliable, responsive and truly care about their patients. My most recent aesthetician Jenna is just about one of the nicest and professional people I’ve met in a long time.. After calling the office to see if I left my ski mask there, she actually walked down the sidewalk and crunched through a major snowfall outside of their office to help me find it. Talk about going above and beyond the call of duty. I highly recommend Lincoln Park Aesthetics. You’re in good hands!!"- R.G. / Yelp / Feb 19, 2021
"Julia Kocemba is my injector for LIFE. Julia immediately greeted me with a friendly smile and conversation that was never awkward. I have done Botox a handful of times at other establishments but never returned to an injector because I never felt they listened. Most aestheticians tell you what you "need" without an extensive conversation. Julia exercised scientific knowledge about anatomy and injectables that automatically made me feel comfortable. She asked me about my other experiences and centered the appointment around me. She is patient and professional. She also has the precision of a surgeon. She shared during our appointment that she is a plastic surgery Physician Assistant as well. Her confidence induced reassurance that my results would be beautiful. I truly can’t imagine trusting anyone else. Thank you Julia...for teaching me cosmetics doesn’t have to be a sales pitch. Lastly, she squeezed me in LAST minute after a cancellation on the same day i reached out! Book your appointment and ask for Julia. You won’t be disappointed. There are plenty of places to get Botox in the city, but I haven’t come across anyone that offers the experience Julia does."- R.S. / Yelp / Jan 29, 2021
"If you’re looking for a reliable, clean, professional med spa look no further! Lincoln Park Aesthetics is the place to go. The staff provides a warm and welcoming environment. They are always happy to answer any questions and demonstrate strong knowledge about the services they provide. I was hesitant to get Brazilian laser hair removal, scared it would hurt, but Jenna made it absolutely painless! I love my results and will continue to recommend this place to everyone! As soon as you step in you’ll know you’re in good hands!"- S.M. / Yelp / Jan 18, 2021
"I have never really been one to place great care on my skin, which was all fine and dandy in my early 20s, but having just scratched the surface into my 30s, I knew it was high-time to start investing in my skin. After seeing incredible results with Jordan from a laser hair removal Groupon last year, I decided to call upon her for my skin. My first appointment was such a great experience! Beforehand, I was feeling a little embarrassed about the lack of skin care in my past, but Jordan listened without judgement and made me feel so comfortable. I have always had dry skin and thought that buying products for "normal to dry skin" was the best thing for me, but after that first appointment, I walked away with a much better understanding that dry skin can mean sensitive skin, so the exfoliants I was using was actually making my skin worse. AH! I have only been seeing her a few short months, but I can already see such a difference. I didn't even realize how dull my skin was looking before meeting with Jordan. The dry, wrinkled-looking skin that I had just come to expect when looking in the mirror is starting to look smooth and shiny. Not to mention, when the pandemic has let up and allowed brief glimpses at a normal life, I haven't been wearing foundation while going out because the coloring of my skin is the most even it has ever been (take that, early-20s me!) I cannot recommend LPA enough and, in particular, I cannot recommend Jordan enough! If you want to look your best, it is 100% worth the investment."- A.J. / Google / Nov 24, 2020
DO I Qualify For Laser Vein Removal?
Nonsurgical vein reduction sessions at Lincoln Park Aesthetics can minimize the look of small to medium-sized veins on the face and body. Commonly known as spider veins, these visible blood vessels are rarely a medical issue; however, they are considered a cosmetic problem. Affected people tend to avoid certain clothing (such as shorts and swimsuits) or use a large amount of makeup to cover up their spider veins. Laser vein removal is best for people who have overall good health, do not have blood clots, and are not pregnant.
Our Laser Vein Removal Technique
Laser vein removal sessions are completed in our Chicago, IL office as an outpatient procedure in about 20 – 40 minutes based on the number of veins being addressed. In your session, you will relax in a reclined position in a private treatment room as your skin is prepared. If requested, a topical anesthetic can be applied beforehand to reduce any potential discomfort. The handheld laser device will emit targeted energy to reach the veins through multiple pulses. The abnormal blood vessel will soak in the energy of the laser. The vein will respond by closing in the walls of the vein. You will be allowed to leave our office right after the treatment to get back to your normal activities.
What to Expect
Following your laser vein removal session, you may notice swelling, redness, and bruising. These short-lived side effects should disappear in 7 – 10 days. For optimal healing, compression or support garments may be worn to improve blood circulation. It's necessary to avoid prolonged sun exposure, and we encourage you to apply sunscreen frequently to the treated skin. Some patients see visible improvements right away, but results will vary for every person. During your initial consultation with our aesthetics team, we will make recommendations on how many sessions will be necessary to get the nicest result. New spider veins will likely appear in time so follow-up treatments may be performed as needed. This treatment will not prevent new spider veins from forming in the same spot or elsewhere on your skin.
