As Florida’s Outdoor Darlin’, Misty Wells recently found herself preparing to move her popular radio show “Let’s Take it Outside” to a new medium – television. And with the thought of getting in front of the camera, this late-40s, single mom who describes herself as neither actress nor model, decided she would drum up a bit of extra self-confidence by engaging in a some non-invasive body contouring with CoolSculpting treatments.
“I’m a really regular person,” explains Misty. “I’m not a supermodel putting in a cameo.” A serious outdoorswoman on camera and off, Misty regularly participates in hunting, offshore fishing, sport fishing, diving and snorkeling, and she teaches others the skills she has honed in the great outdoors.
These days, women have plenty of ways to express their independent spirit. From successful careers to working hard to stay in shape, women want to look just as vibrant on the outside as they feel inside. This was precisely the mindset of retired schoolteacher Peggy when she decided to trade in her tired look and rough skin for its younger, smoother version.
With these goals in mind, Peggy visited Radiance Medspa in Belleair Bluffs. A rosacea sufferer, Peggy was interested in IPL Photofacials to target redness, spots and broken capillaries on her skin. What Peggy hadn’t counted on was that she would also learn about the benefits of injectables that would bring back the vibrant look she had enjoyed a couple decades ago.
It’s never too early to start reversing the signs of aging, especially when you grow up as a sun-loving Florida gal like Ashley Lowery. Having spent her youth enjoying water sports, surfing and sunbathing without also enjoying the benefits of sunblock, Ashley entered her 30s happy, but freckled. When her wedding day loomed, and she noticed herself shying away from strapless and backless dresses, Ashley knew it was time to put an end to the sun damage she’d had such a great time acquiring.
“I was the toddler with the best tan on the beach,” she says. “But by 30, my back and shoulders had become so sun damaged that I was very conscious of wearing anything that didn’t cover it up.” Luckily, Ashley had attended a Fraxel seminar at Radiance Medspa in Belleair Bluffs, and she was amazed at what she had learned the non-invasive laser treatment could do.
Maggie Loving, owner of Anytime Fitness in Clearwater, felt fantastic. In fact, she had plenty of energy, which is why when she noticed a sunken look around her eyes, she knew it was not fatigue. As we age, not only do lines and wrinkles creep in, gravity and slowed collagen production lead to loss of facial volume. In many people, this creates a hollow, sunken appearance in the eye or cheek area. Luckily, Maggie had learned of a breakthrough in replacing facial fullness, and she made an appointment at Radiance Medspa to find out more about what Juvéderm Voluma XC could do for her.
