Aging Gratefully

So we are all getting older, right? What does that mean, really? It means we are lucky! We should be grateful for the opportunity to grow older. Let’s all take a moment to mourn the passing of our youth, then move on! We have so much to look forward to, and so many advantages that our parents never had.

What about Botox? Who’s not supremely grateful for Botox? And that’s just the beginning! We are also grateful for Brilliant Distinctions, the Allergan program that rewards you when you do many things that help you look and feel younger. Join now by going to You will earn savings toward future purchases and treatments every time you have Botox, Juvederm, Voluma, or buy SkinMedica products at Radiance.

Be grateful that you can take a siesta without guilt. In fact there is now evidence that napping may help you live longer. A recent scientific study with 24,000 participants suggests that regular nappers are 37% less likely to die from heart disease than non-nappers. Researchers think the afternoon snooze might help your heart by keeping stress hormones at bay. Where do we sign up for that study?

There are new reasons to be grateful at Radiance. We are pleased to present gynecologist and naturopath Dr. Tamyra Comeaux, who now offers Bio-Identical Hormone Pellets for both men and women to alleviate some of the pains of mid-life. As women age, we experience changes in the vagina and surrounding areas that can result in stress incontinence and a decrease in sexual sensitivity. Dr. Comeaux offers the O-Shot®, a non-surgical procedure that uses your own growth factors to stimulate vaginal and clitoral rejuvenation to activate the Orgasm System, and dramatically reduce stress incontinence. Call for a consultation.

We can look forward to feeling younger and happier as we get older. The Pew Research Center’s recent study Growing Old in America found that 60% of participants age 65 and older reported they felt 10-19 years younger than their chronological age. A university study surveyed 10,000 people from the US and Britain and reported that seniors expressed the highest level of happiness they had ever experienced.

We live in the Information Age. Be grateful that there is so much data at your fingertips. Insomnia? High blood pressure? Chronic pain? There’s an app for that! Do your research, then call us and make an appointment. We can help you identify and treat the underlying causes of your symptoms.

If you feel the middle age pounds creeping up, you can be grateful that The Ideal Protein Weigh Loss Program is here to help! Our medical professionals will guide you through a successful weight loss program designed just for you. Got stubborn fat that doesn’t go away even with diet and exercise? Be grateful that the brilliant Harvard doctors who invented laser hair removal (for which we are extremely grateful!) also invented CoolSculpting, the only FDA approved treatment for non-invasive lasting fat removal.

Just the fact that you are a certain age means you are strong and blessed. You have not been defeated by accidents, genes, germs or circumstance. Be grateful that you are a survivor!  At Radiance we are grateful for you. We thank you for your business, your friendship, and your loyalty. We hope you experience this appreciation every time you walk in our doors.

 Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Radiance, your beauty and wellness destination.
