Customer happiness is key at LeBelle Salon and Spa BY ALISON STANTON
For the past 20-plus years, Wendy Golden has worked in the spa and salon industry. Along the way, she says, she always knew that one day she would open her own place and offer her clients a variety of beauty-related treatments and services. Golden fulﬁlled her dream when she opened LeBelle Salon and Spa in early August. Golden and her team of stylists and aestheticians feature a huge selection of treatments. “We do manicures and pedicures, as well as gel nails, and we do facials here, too,” Golden says. LeBelle Salon and Spa specializes in anti-aging facials as well as dermabrasion and a procedure called micro-needling. “Micro-needling allows for a controlled induction of the skin’s selfrepair mechanism by creating micro injuries in the skin, which triggers new collagen,” Golden says. “The result is smoother, ﬁrmer and younger-looking skin.” For people who are in the market for a new hairstyle or color, LeBelle Salon offers haircuts for men, women and kids, as well as Brazilian blowouts, highlights and color. “We feature a lot of the newest color techniques, and we make it a point to stay up to date on both education and the latest trends,” Golden says. With homecoming season in full
swing, Golden says she and her staff have been staying busy with their specialoccasion hair and makeup services. “We’ve been working with a lot of the high school girls who are going to homecoming, and we also work with a lot of wedding parties. We can see them either in the salon, or we also have a traveling bridal crew that can meet the party at another location.” Regardless of whether someone comes in for a quick and simple bang trim or a more involved aesthetic service, Golden says she and her dozen or so technicians strive to make sure every client has a wonderful and relaxing time. “We are really structured around customer service, and we do thorough consultations with everyone where we really listen to our clients and understand what they want,” Golden says. She and her staff enjoy making everyone as comfortable as possible. “We just do everything we can to make people feel comfortable and happy,” Golden explains. “We know that for some women, coming here is their chance to escape from work or the kids for awhile, so we just want them to feel really relaxed and welcome when they come in.” Although she is proud to offer the latest and highest-quality services and

treatment. The gold standard in treating sleep apnea has been CPAP [continuous positive airway pressure], where oxygen is forced into their lungs to keep the airway open so the patient does not stop breathing and keeps enough oxygen in the system to keep the brain and heart supplied to function normally. Unfortunately, there are many people who cannot tolerate CPAP and therefore seek alternative treatment options with us. When you come into our state of the art facility, we will perform a complete and thorough head and neck examination including radiographic analysis of your facial structures. We will discuss the different options to treat sleep apnea from oral devices that open the airway to definitive jaw surgery to correct for abnormal facial development.

has become one of the leading US health concerns that we face as we continue to treat an aging and oftentimes overweight population. Patients who have been diagnosed with sleep apnea can have symptoms that include a feeling of being tired, fatigued and sleepy during the daytime. Many people who develop sleep apnea start with snoring, which can then progress towards apnea, where they stop breathing. The benefit of treating sleep apnea is that it will reduce the complications associated with sleep apnea. These complications include: problems with your endocrine system [thyroid problems and diabetes], hypertension, congestive heart failure, cardiovascular disease including heart block and arrhythmias, an increased risk of stroke, mood disorders and of course, increased mortality. After seeing this long list of complications, one can see why it is so important to treat the obstructive sleep apnea [OSA] as soon as it is diagnosed. Once a patient has been diagnosed with OSA, it is important to begin immediate
