Today, many happy moms throughout the Lake Area breathed a collective sigh of relief. The 2018-2019 school year has begun. 

“All moms deserve a little me time,” said Danette McManus, owner of Slender Solutions. “And now is the perfect time to get it.”  

Pampered. Invigorated. Inches gone. Healthy glow.

Over time, toxins accumulate in the body for a variety of sources. Even stress plays a role. This can cause poor circulation, water retention and a bloated feeling. Slender Solutions uses specific application techniques, including an infrared sauna, FDA approved minerals and other ingredients to detoxify and contour the body.

Slender Solutions is not a spa. Spas generally focus on exfoliating or moisturizing the outer skin layer, according to Brady. Slender Solutions focuses on achieving visual, measurable results. Clients have lost six to 20 inches and leave feeling pampered, rejuvenated and with a healthy glow.   

Clients have included those wanting to look their best for homecoming celebrations, swimsuit season, Mardi Gras balls and during that walk down the aisle to Wagner’s Bridal Chorus.

Slender Solutions helps new moms, the middle-aged fight the battle of the bulge and seniors seeking relief from joint stiffness.

Services appeal to clients who don’t necessarily like exercise, the serious and healthy dieter who needs a little nudge of encouragement, and those who have lost weight and want to deal with little bulges that may remain. Even the exercise enthusiast can reap the power of the wrap to rid the body of lactic acids.

The Slender Solutions atmosphere is soothing. McManus, Candace Brady and Christine Ryder are the picture of health and vitality, eager to show you how they can help you achieve the same. continue the Slender Solutions tradition of nurturing, serving and offering encouragement to each client.

The tradition continues.

In 1998, Dixette Williams, McManus’ mother, realized the potential of the detoxifying body wrap, and she opened the doors to Slender Solutions, the first body-wrapping salon in Southwest Louisiana.

“Some people think we’re still at the McNeese Street location,” McManus said.

When Williams died in 2013, Slender Solutions temporarily shut its doors. Last year, McManus and one of Williams’ former technicians, Candace Brady, joined forces to reignite and continue Williams’ dream in Oak Crossing at 5656 Nelson Road in Lake Charles.
