Meet the Staff
  • Naz Shah, the president and founding owner of Nu Image Aesthetics & Wellness Institute, wanted to find a way to enhance the health of patients being seen in the Shah Medical Associate practice. With this in mind, she began investigating weight loss programs currently being offered to aid a physician in helping their patients achieve weight loss goals and improve their health. Naz attended multiple seminars on weight loss programs achieving the knowledge she needed to open Nu Image Aesthetics & Wellness Institute in 2009. She is continually looking for ways to enhance the program and in 2014 incorporated Lipo-Light and the ICON Palomar 1540 Non-Ablative Laser System. Soon after, in late 2015, Naz expanded Nu Image’s services by moving to a brand new state-of-the-art facility. Nu Image Aesthetics & Wellness Institute is now a full-service Medical Spa and Weight Loss Institute! It has been her goal to bring Chicago to the suburbs. She has partnered with Chicago’s Top Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Michael Byun to bring the next level of skincare to the Elgin area and to provide her clients with a comprehensive range of aesthetic treatments utilizing the latest in laser technology for non-invasive, anti-aging and corrective skin care.
