Cosmetic Acupuncture

Are you thinking about cosmetic surgery to boost your appearance?  Before you commit to a procedure, consider cosmetic acupuncture.  This is a good alternative to painful procedures and side effects associated with it.  It provides natural results by stimulating collagen and elastin production causing the skin to plump up, smooth fine lines, reduce deep furrows, reduce age spots and sagging.  Cosmetic acupuncture is also effective at preventing wrinkles and fine lines before they appear.  This procedure is safe and effective resulting in a glowing complexion.
The Doctors at Advanced Physical Medicine and Therapy invite you to schedule a free consultation to see if you are a candidate for this treatment.  Call(847) 222-9060 today to schedule an appointment!

New Year’s Resolutions

Pyrotechnic DisplayI would like to wish you a Happy & Prosperous New Year.  New Year is a time of resolutions.  I would like to encourage all of my readers not to make a long list of resolutions.  Instead, make one small resolution that has the potential to become a habit you can keep.  Here are some examples:


1.    Start taking Omega 3’s

2.   Take a walk around the block once a day

3.   Give up soda ( diet or otherwise) or limit to one a day

4.   Drink more water

5.  Go to bed on time

6.  Replace a starchy snack with a piece of fruit every day

Make sure you choose a resolution that will guarantee success.  Complete it every day for a month.  February 1 reevaluate–see if you can add another change.  If you continue each month adding one small resolution at the end of the year you will have made 12 positive changes.  A new year; a new opportunity for good health!
