We’re in a Summer State of Mind

February 28, 2018

“Summer bodies are made in winter.” It’s kind of cliché, but it’s true. The ladies at Radiance can do a lot of great things, but great things take time.

Take body contouring, for example. SculpSure non-invasive, body contouring typically requires 2 sessions, spaced 6 weeks apart; it then takes about 12 weeks after your second treatment to see the final results. That means that if you start now, you’ll achieve your end result right around the time school gets out in June. Or maybe you’ve been considering Laser Lipo — while results will start to be visible a week or so after your procedure, it can take up to 4 months for the swelling to completely resolve. Keep in mind, too, that Laser Lipo requires you to wear a compression garment for 4-6 weeks post-op, and those garments are much easier to hide under pants, long sleeves, and sweaters. If you’re looking to reduce fat in targeted areas, you will definitely want to consider doing it soon!

Would you love to go all summer without thinking about shaving or waxing? We can make that happen with laser hair removal. However, since hair grows at different times and rates, it takes about 6 sessions, spaced every 4-6 weeks, to achieve full results. That works out to about 6 months between your first treatment and your last. Since you’ll experience a reduction in hair growth after each session, you could start now, have noticeable improvement by Memorial Day, and be virtually hair-free by Labor Day!

Are you currently feeling dull and pasty? Great! That’s the best time to see us for skincare treatments. Most of our skincare treatments (chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and laser treatments) require you to avoid sun exposure for a week or so after treatments. That’s a lot easier to do when it gets dark at 5pm and it’s too cold to spend much time outside anyway. Since most laser treatments shouldn’t be performed on clients who are currently tanned, make your pale winter skin work to your advantage and get in to see Billy soon!

While you’re starting to make those plans for spring break and summer vacation, don’t forget to put us on your schedule.

P.S. Thanksgiving was 3 months ago. That Botox you got right before the holidays? It’s probably going to wear off soon. Plan accordingly!
