Save the Date for Hospice Hustle 2019: September 15
The annual Hospice Hustle Cycling Event that benefits Hospice of the Calumet Region is quickly approaching once again! For the 15th year, the event is co-chaired by Dr. Galante and Bill Hasse of Hasse Construction. Both are excited to extend a personal invitation to you to attend this event, held in the beautiful countryside of southern Lake County.
Join us on Sunday, September 15 at 8:00 a.m. for a day of exercise. Hospice Hustle 2019 offers a peaceful bike ride of 25, 50, 75, or 100 miles. And of course, this year there will be the family-friendly 15-mile trail ride again, so bring the kids and enjoy the sunshine together.
Registration is $35 in advance and $40 day of event (with all proceeds going to help provide care for hospice patients and their family). At registration, cyclists are provided a pancake breakfast and coffee sponsored by Starbucks. Following the ride, cyclists can refuel with chili provided by Scarborough Fair Catering, relax with a massage from Shanti Wellness therapists, and enjoy live music by Sandbox, with beer available for purchase from Crown Brewing.
We hope to see you there! Your support will help us continue the Hospice of Calumet Region’s mission to provide care to those facing a life-limiting illness. Check out the NWI Times article for more information as well.
Nikki’s Recommendations to Reverse Sun Damage
Undo the Damage of Summer with IPL
Did you have a little too much fun in the sun this summer? While summer is a great time to enjoy the outdoors, it can also damage your skin if you didn’t take the proper measures to protect it. Sun damage is the primary cause of premature aging, causing discoloration and poor skin texture.
If you forgot to lather on that SPF this summer, IPL (intense pulsed light) skin rejuvenation treatments with our aesthetic nurse, Nikki, can help reverse some of those effects. IPL delivers light energy to the skin to stimulate collagen production, improve skin elasticity, and create a healthy, even tone. READ MORE ON IPL
Nikki Also Recommends Chemical Peels
If you’re looking for additional options to reverse summer damage and rejuvenate the skin, Nikki also offers chemical peels. A chemical peel removes the outer layer of cells and reveals the healthier complexion underneath.
Despite its scary-sounding name, it is not a painful procedure; it’s merely a solution that’s applied to the skin as a form of chemical exfoliation to accelerate skin cell turnover and stimulate collagen production. READ MORE ON CHEMICAL PEELS

Choose a Customized Facelift for Fall with Dr. Galante
A facelift can restore a youthful and vibrant appearance, leaving you feeling refreshed for fall and looking much better than your stated age. Dr. Galante often performs both mini and standard facelift procedures in the fall to help patients reduce signs of aging, such as wrinkles, lines, and jowls, and to restore firmness by correcting laxity in the tissues.
Prior to any decision or procedure, Dr. Galante will begin with a thorough consultation for every patient. During the consultation, he will discuss your goals, obtain a full medical history, explain the procedure, and answer any questions about his recommendations.
Dr. Galante performs facelifts on an outpatient basis, meaning you can return home after your procedure. Recovery from a facelift is usually faster than you might expect. Pain is typically minimal, and you can easily manage any discomfort with medication. Results will typically last 7 to 10 years.
If you’re interested in learning more about mini or standard facelift procedures with Dr. Galante, you can visit his website for additional information and request your complimentary consultation online or by calling (219) 322-3131.
