HAPPY FEET

Now that Summer is over, people tend to neglect their feet! Some think that just because they’re not in sandals anymore, they don’t have to have pretty painted toes! Pedicures are much more than esthetically pleasing toes! Let’s look at the top reasons pedicures are good for you… in any season!

Removes calluses on your feet
Calluses are caused by constant friction and pressure on certain areas of your feet. They can develop from continuously wearing high heels or from a pair of shoes that doesn’t fit quite right. A callus appears like a thick skin and often looks unsightly. If left untreated, some calluses may develop into an infection and cause you pain.
Getting a pedicure can help remove calluses on your feet. Before you have it treated, make sure that you do not suffer from certain medical conditions such as diabetes. A foot scrub and moisturizing lotion during your pedicure can help reduce the development of callus on your feet.

Relaxes your feet
A pedicure involves a foot and leg massage to help release tension on your muscles and joints. The massage received during a pedicure is also a great for de stressing and makes your feet feel relaxed leading to what our experts call “happy feet”. It helps with blood flow circulation and can act as a therapy to relieve us from stress and relaxation.

Detects signs of nail diseases
Changing your toenail polish regularly, could help you see if you are developing a toenail fungus. Your nails could be brittle, dull, thickened, or a dark color and you might not even notice if your polish is three months old. Getting a regular pedicure allows you to become more aware of the normal condition of your toenails helping to prevent nail disease.

Our nail technicians recommend getting a pedicure every 4-6 weeks for optimal results. Schedule an appointment today for Happy Feet at 910.484.9922!

Celluma Light Therapy

 

LED Light Therapy has been all the rage lately! Clients want to know what exactly is LED Light Therapy and why is it good for their skin. We went straight to the source and got all the answers from our Celluma Pro distributor, BioPhotas.

The Celluma Pro is an award winning LED device that provides a painless, relaxing non-invasive skin care treatment. LED light therapy has multiple benefits- particularly stimulating collagen and treating mild to moderate acne.

Blue, red and near infrared are the most commonly used wavelengths in LED phototherapy. These specific wavelengths are well researched and scientifically proven to produce therapeutic benefits. Blue penetrates through the epidermis and is known to kill P.acnes bacteria. Red penetrates into the dermal layer and has been shown to enhance collagen and elastin production through photobiostimulation of fibroblasts.

LED therapy can be used as a powerful stand alone therapy or add-on to most facial treatments. It is ideal for use following any laser, microdermabrasion, microneedling, or injection treatments. It is clinically proven for the treatment of wrinkles, acne and pain.

According to BioPhotas, in a clinical trial using Celluma to treat facial wrinkles, 80% of participants said that they experienced an improvement in skin texture, 77% reported an improvement in skin firmness and 66% reported an improvement in facial wrinkles after only 4 weeks.

At the Renaissance, you can schedule your Celluma Light Treatment on its own or add it to a facial. It is a 30 minute treatment complete with a hand and foot massage! Our estheticians recommend clients get a series of 6-8 treatments to see the best results. Got more questions, schedule a free consultation today! Call 910.484.9922 to schedule your appointment .

3 Benefits to Getting a Massage

Massage is no longer available only through luxury spas and upscale health clubs. Today, massage therapy is offered in clinics, hospitals and even airports.

If you’ve never tried massage, learn about its possible health benefits and what to expect during a massage therapy session. Massage therapy is much more than a mere luxury or an extravagance. Rather, it is an investment into yourself. Listed below are 3 reasons why you should look into getting a massage, but there are others, ranging from specific medical issues to sports and weightlifting.

  1. Counteracts all the sitting. People who sit throughout the day, such as most office workers, need to be especially cognizant of the damage to their bodies all the sitting is accumulating. Office jobs affect more than just our posture, for instance if you spend most of your days on a keyboard, your forearms especially could probably benefit from a massage. More advanced forms of stress may show up as pain or weakness in the low back and gluteals caused by prolonged periods of sitting. Luckily, massage therapy can counteract the imbalance caused from sitting, which means you can keep your desk job as long as you want, just schedule a massage every now and then.

 

  1. Sleep. No more lying awake, trying in vain to fall asleep. Massages are known to reduce blood pressure and increase sleepiness. Most people, in fact, fall asleep during the massage (depending heavily on the type of massage) which enhances the effect of feeling rested and refreshed at the end of your massage.

 

  1. Mood Boost. Is the weather outside bringing down your mood? Are you having a rough week? Then you need a massage! There have been studies on massage therapy that concluded that, on average, massage increases your levels of serotonin, which is a neurotransmitter linked to happiness by 28 percent. This is a boost that should help you either recover from a day that was less than optimal or to prepare for one.

Massage therapy is something that is both good for you and fun to do. There are not many things that can check both boxes. In Fayetteville, The Renaissance European Day Spa’s professional massage therapists offer a range of packages and treatments designed to fit any situation.

5 Reasons to visit your local spa!

Going to a spa may seem like a gratuitous luxury, but in our stress-filled lives, going to a spa is not an extravagance but a necessity! Having doubts? Here are 5 reasons why indulging in a spa experience is worth the time and money spent!

 

  1.       De-stress: A big advantage that you receive from visiting a spa is a break from your daily boring routine or stressful lifestyle. Are you aware of the detrimental effects like cardiovascular problems, skin irritations, unnecessary weight gains, chronic diseases, etc. caused by stress? Stress is something that cannot be avoided in our day to day life, but a trip to the spa can help you relax and decompress. Every type of treatment or service, including massage and bodywork, can help you to relieve stress.

 

  1.       Detox: The pollution we face on daily basis coupled with our eating habits, results in the accumulation of toxins in our bodies. Some massages and facials by themselves will help break down the toxins in your body so drink plenty of water to flush them out of your system. Detoxification is something that will have a definite impact on your life, making you feel energized and rejuvenated.

 

  1.       Spend time with your loved ones: Spas allow you to spend some quality time with the people most important in your life. Most spas offer private couple rooms and dual massages so you can have a relaxing experience together. Try it with your significant other and enjoy relaxing together.

 

  1.       Anti-aging: Taking care of your skin helps ward off the aging process. Certain essential oils, like lavender oil, even have anti-aging properties. Regular use of these oils helps in keeping your skin looking young and taut. Whether it’s working to reduce visible signs of aging, battling acne scars, fighting damage from skin exposure, or simply exfoliating, skin treatments can leave your skin looking bright, clear, and healthy.

 

  1.       Pamper Yourself: Sometimes it can be difficult to take the time for yourself at home. Designated time at a spa means you will get your beauty needs taken care of thoroughly and without having to lift a finger yourself. You will look beautiful, rested and radiant just by showing up!

 

You can never run out of reasons to go to the spa, rough day at work, traffic jams, long lines at the grocery, whatever the scenario, just head to the spa, and leave your worries at the door. A trip to the spa is all about making you look and feel great, get healthier and relax! To book your own unique, personalized spa experience contact the professionals at Renaissance European Day Spa.
