Our whole body takes a hit when fall settles in around us. As we drag ourselves in off the golf course and out of the pool, all the bright sunshine that supports our Vitamin D requirements dwindles. The fresh produce and seafood that boosts our moods and nourishes our bodies becomes less plentiful in the grocery aisles. Our hair, nails and skin have all baked and flaked, dried and fried. Don’t succumb to fall! At Radiance we want to help bring the bounty back.
We all know we need Vitamin D to combat osteoporosis, but it is also shown that Vitamin D affects heart disease, mood disorders, and high blood pressure. We love Designs for Health Vitamin D Supreme with 5000 IU per capsule. Make an appointment with Dr. Bobbie Stowe, our Wellness Doctor, to test your blood levels. It is the only way to know what Vitamin D dosage is right for the individual you are!
Omega 3 Fatty Acids are an essential ingredient to our good mood! Flaxseed, walnuts and cold-water fish such as salmon, are excellent sources that can be found year round. Additionally, at Radiance, we offer Designs for Health OmegAvail Ultra, which provides 2400 mg of Omega 3 fatty acids per day. Omega 3 Fatty Acids also help rejuvenate flaky, sun-dried skin, so fall a perfect time to stock up!
Fall marks the beginning of the cold and flu season. Be sure you continue to exercise! Don’t use cooler weather as an excuse to sit on the couch. Exercise improves the circulation of immune cells in your blood. Your immune system is your first line of defense against everything from colds and flu to life-threatening diseases like cancer. Take a quality multi-vitamin such as our Designs for Health Twice Daily Multi.
Fall is a good time to visit Helena, Jenna, or Dawn in our Aesthetics Department for a Visia Skin Analysis. They will scan your skin and record surface and subsurface skin conditions such as wrinkles, spots, pores, evenness, and sun damage. The Visia gives our Radiance aestheticians the perfect tool to customize a skin care program based on your unique complexion profile. Don’t be surprised if it’s time for a peel. That summer skin has got to go!
You may want to talk to one of our expert hair designers in The Salon at Radiance. Now is the ideal time to consider low-lites for a warmer fall look. Perhaps you’ve been wanting to try the Keratin Complex Smoothing System for more shine, less frizz and overall more manageable hair. The treatment lasts about three months so now is the perfect time to get you through the holidays.
CoolSculpt now for results to show Santa! Remember it takes about 8 weeks lose the muffin top, love handles or other body bulge, so fall is the perfect time for CoolSculpting. See up to 40% reduction in fat after only one treatment. What feels better than looking better? Appointments are limited so call soon.
We all know that fall is the start of the crazy holiday season. Don’t forget to take time for yourself with a wonderful Japanese Hot Stone Massage or a perhaps body Polish to slough off that flakey summer skin. Valerie, Brenda and Gloria are world-class massage therapists and they are here for you!
We all know our nail technicians are excellent at pampering spa pedicures and addictive Shellac manicures, but don’t forget they are also experts at Callus Eliminating Pedicures. You may want to consider how much barefoot beach time your feet endured over the last few months and put them in Cassie, Cynthia or Beverly’s capable hands. You may be tickled but you won’t be sorry!
And finally, Dermal Fillers are being offered to you for a special price this month, so please enjoy them. We are introducing a new filler to complement Radiesse and Juvederm.
