Red Rose Nail Spa, llc 1251 Cedar Crest Blvd. Suite 301 Allentown 610.841.4360 redrosenailspa.com
“Glitz and Glam, with your health in mind,” is the motto of Red Rose Nail Spa. Located within the podiatry office of Dr. Michelle McCarroll (owner), Red Rose Nail Spa has its own private suite, offering manicures and pedicures in a private, serene environment where only sterilized instruments are used. Frustrated with treating clients who picked up a nail fungus or developed an infected ingrown toenail after one unsafe pedicure, Dr. McCarroll opened the nail spa to provide a safe place for people to go. The “beauty” of the location is that Dr. Shannon McGinley (manager) can often evaluate a client’s foot problem, perhaps give a little free advice and, if needed, refer to the podiatry practice. Gretchen Velk (advanced nail technician) has the expertise to not only educate her clients about their feet, but also create a “masterpiece” with hard gel and bling. For those looking for a safe place to avoid infection and to experience a beautiful manicure and pedicure, Red Rose Nail Spa is the place to go.

DR. SOLOMON LUO Tired of wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses? LASIK surgery may be the answer. LASIK is a type of refractive eye surgery that may decrease dependence on glasses and contacts or, in some cases, allow people to do without them entirely. In 1989, Solomon Luo, MD, of the Progressive Vision Institute was one of the first physicians in the area to perform surgery to correct nearsightedness. Laser vision correction has become a main area of concentration at Progressive Vision Institute. They have performed thousands of laser vision correction procedures. Results depend on refractive error and other factors. Anyone interested should contact Progressive Vision Institute today for a free screening to determine whether they are a candidate for LASIK.

Many people believe the hectic pace of today’s life is the reason for their lack of energy, sleepiness during the day and inability to focus or concentrate. But is the stress of life really the cause, or is there something else that has affected millions of people without them knowing how or why it happens? The new “not so silent” killer has afflicted upwards of thirty percent of the population and has become a significant contributor to many of the health issues that are faced today, such as diabetes, cardiac issues and other conditions. This killer is sleep apnea, and it is becoming more and more prevalent in the world today. For those who believe their sleep is poor or have been told they snore loudly, a more healthful and productive life is possible without the use of CPAP equipment. Call the experts at Dental Sleep Medicine of the Lehigh Valley today to learn how!
