Fall is in the Air!

Tips for maintaining your skin and hair during the changing seasons.

November is a time to give thanks. There have been recent studies that indicate a correlation between gratitude and good health. In this fall season, and all seasons to follow, take time to give thanks for all of the blessings we have. We often get caught up in all of the hustle and bustle of the holiday season and forget to take time for ourselves. Radiance is here to help. We all have so much to be thankful for, and so much to look forward to. So join us at Radiance, and take advantage of our many great services to get prepared for the fall season!

Happiness is Healthy

Remember to add a dose of happiness to your health regimen. Positive thoughts and attitudes are able to stimulate changes in your body that strengthen your immune system, boost positive emotions, decrease pain and chronic disease, and provide stress relief. A Harvard review of more than 200 studies found a connection between positive psychological attributes, such as happiness, optimism and life satisfaction, and a lowered risk of cardiovascular disease. The evidence is too powerful to be ignored. Be active, be happy, and be healthy!

Your Skin Talks

Healthy and vibrant skin is never out of reach. Fall is a great time to visit one of our fabulous aestheticians to receive a Visia Skin Analysis. She will scan your skin and record surface and subsurface skin conditions such as wrinkles, spots, pores, evenness, and sun damage. The Visia gives our aestheticians the perfect tool to customize a skin care program based on your unique complexion profile.

Changing Seasons and Changing Your Hair

Approach the new fall season with a boost of confidence from a new hair color. Schedule a consultation with one of our expert hair designers in The Salon at Radiance; now is the ideal time to choose a hair color to give you a warmer fall look.  We tend to have little time in the busy holiday season to spend on unmanageable hair, and The Salon at Radiance has the perfect solution. Our Keratin Complex Smoothing System is perfect for added shine, less frizz, and overall more manageable hair. Yes, Please! The treatment lasts about three months, so now is the perfect time to get you through the holidays.

Make Massages a Part of Your Wellness Plan

In need of some reduced anxiety and stress relief? Who isn’t? Take some time for yourself during this busy holiday season to come relax, renew and rewind with a soothing Japanese Hot Stone Massage or an exfoliating Body Polish to slough off that summer skin.

Mission: Relaxation!

Everyone deserves to be pampered! Come see one of our wonderful natural nail specialists to get a relaxing Radiance Royal Pedicure, or a gorgeous gel manicure to look fabulous for the holidays! We all know how crazy this time of year can get, and what better way to take some time for yourself than to relax in The Nail Salon at Radiance.

Age Is Something to Be Grateful For

“Age is not lost youth, but a new stage of opportunity and strength” -Betty Friedan. To become a year older is not a misfortune, but an opportunity. Instead of mourning the passing of our youth, let’s make our favorite age the age we are right now!  Loving yourself begins within, but your outer appearance is something to be grateful for as well.

We have an amazing new reason to be grateful at Radiance. We are proud to present our newest service, KYBELLA™, a new nonsurgical treatment for submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin.” Each treatment session with KYBELLA™ is typically 20 to 30 minutes, and given right here in our office. Call to set up a consultation.

Another reason we are grateful is the availability of Botox and dermal fillers, as well as Brilliant Distinctions, the Allergan program that rewards you whenever you do things that help you look and feel younger. Join now by going to www.brilliantdistinctionsprogram.com. You will earn savings toward future purchases and treatments every time you have Botox, Juvederm, Voluma, or buy SkinMedica products at Radiance. Hooray for savings!

And finally, we are supremely grateful for our 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.

Remember, each new day is a blessing. Some circumstances are blessings in disguise, so try to reshape your “problems” into challenges and look for ways to be thankful for them. Try to see the good in every situation, even ones that seem untenable. When your house is a mess, remember you are blessed to have a roof over your head. When the laundry piles up, remember it is because you have clothes to wear. When the kids are being rambunctious, remember how healthy and energetic your kids are able to be. And lastly, when things seem too overwhelming, remember you are blessed to be alive!  Prayer or meditation allows you to focus on something other than yourself, bringing forth your gratitude attitude.  Compliment people around you; a compliment, or even a smile, can brighten someone’s entire day.

We have many reasons to be grateful at Radiance, but we are exceptionally grateful for our guests. We appreciate your business, your friendship, and your loyalty. We hope you experience this appreciation every time you walk through our doors, this month and every month!

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Radiance, your beauty and wellness destination for the last ten years.
