  • As a health and wellness expert, Naz Shah wanted to bring big-city Chicago wellness and body treatments to the burbs. This was the vision behind Nu Image Aesthetics & Wellness in Elgin, Illinois.

    To help men and women look and feel their best, Naz began investigating medical weight loss programs that were currently available through physicians. After attending multiple seminars on weight loss and obtaining the knowledge and skills she needed to help clients achieve their body goals, Naz continued to look for innovative ways to enhance her program and services.

    Naz started out by offering laser Lipo Light® body contouring treatments, in addition to Icon™ Palomar LUX™ 1540 non-ablative laser skin-tightening solutions. After expanding into a new state-of-the-art facility in 2015, Naz partnered with one of Chicago’s top board-certified plastic surgeons, Michael Byun, MD. This allowed her to offer more modern skin and body treatments to clients of all ages.

    As a full-service wellness and medical spa, Naz and her team strive to provide each client with a comprehensive skin and body treatment plan. Between SculpSure® body contouring, laser skin tightening, medical weight loss, and more, Naz continues to offer new services and treatments. Her team stays up-to-date with the latest in industry trends and wellness solutions.
