Beauty Clinic




Welcome to the Beauty Clinic where your skin needs are met. At the Beauty Clinic we bring out the beauty in our clients. How you look has a dramatic effect on how you feel about yourself. Your self-esteem and confidence directly impacts your life both professionally and socially. Maintaining your look as you age is a positive step towards being confident, happy and fulfilled with who you are as an individual.

J Medical Spa & Beauty Clinic aims to restore a youthful appearance through our extensive range of cosmetic procedures:

Mesotherapy:

Mesotherapy involves the injection of small amounts of medication, vitamins and amino acids into the mesoderm, the layer of fat and connective tissue under the skin. Mesotherapy has been used in the treatment of acne, arthritis, joints problems and sports injuries, alopecia, chronic infections, as well as for cosmetic purposes, such as reducing cellulite and for weight loss (localized obesity). Mesotherapy is virtually painless, requires no down-time, no bandages or anaesthesia.

Botox:

Botox injections are used to treat wrinkles. Botox is a neurotoxin produced from the botulinum bacteria. When injected into a muscle, it acts as a nerve impulse blocker, temporarily relaxing the muscles. The goal of Botox injections is to achieve a fresh, natural look, avoid looking tired and to look as good as possible. It has become the treatment of choice to get rid of expression lines - those that form when you frown, smile or laugh. The procedure is painless - just a needle prick, but a topical anaesthetic cream can be used if the client prefers or multiple sites are planned.

Fillers:

Fillers are injected into the skin to fill lines and wrinkles and build or plump up areas like the lips and cheeks. Dermal Fillers are made of various kinds of natural and man-made or synthetic materials that have been developed over the years for injection into the skin. The perfect filler is non-allergic, non-pyrogenic, non-carcinogenic, no skin test, no down time, and looks and feels natural. Soft tissue augmentation (Fillers) has become a popular means of addressing contour defects that result from aging, photo-damage, trauma and / or scarification, or disease.

Laser / IPL:

Laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) are used in skin rejuvenation, skin resurfacing, cellulite treatment, treatment of pigmented lesions, hair removal, tattoo removal and removal of facial and leg veins.

Cellulite:

Cellulite is a common condition that gives the appearance of lumpiness and dimpling across the skin and is most prevalent in the thigh, hip and buttock areas. Almost all women (and some men) have cellulite, stemming from genetic predisposition, hormonal changes and weight gain.

Weight Loss Programs:

Obesity is a major public health and economic problem of global significance. Prevalence rates are increasing in all parts of the world, both in affluent western countries and in poorer nations. Men, women and children are affected. Indeed, overweight, obesity and health problems associated with them are now so common that they are replacing the more traditional public health concerns, such as under nutrition and infectious disease as the most significant contributors to global ill health. Our weight loss program includes patient evaluation, dietary guidelines, exercise guidelines and medication.

Skin Care Tips

Cleanse

Cleaning is one of the single most important things you can do for your skin. Everyone's skin gets dirty from dust, sweat, make-up, sebum and impurities in the air. If you do not cleanse, your pores will become clogged and your skin will start to look dull.

Cleansers

Cleansers gently dissolve surface dirt without harsh chemicals. Use morning and night. Apply to damp face and rinse well. Repeat. Follow with corresponding Toner.

Toners

Toners remove cleansers residue and restore the pH balance to your skin. This helps protect your skin from the environment and maximizes the benefits of your moisturiser. Apply sparingly to face and neck after cleansing.

Serums

Serums are intensive concentrates of active ingredients that "boost" or enhance the effectiveness of the products they compliment. The usually have anti-aging or hydrating benefits. Use sparingly on entire face (avoid eye area) after toner.

Moisturizers

Moisturizers add moisture - not oil to your skin. They protect your skin from the environment and keep it hydrated to defend against dryness, dehydration and breakouts. The majority of modern formulations contain a myriad of ingredients to firm, smooth, mattify or boost radiance. As a general rule, dryer skins need a rich, hydrating moisturizer, while combination and oily skins do better with a light weight lotion. Apply after serum. Use sparingly.

Masks / Scrubs

Masks deep treat your skin and give it that "extra" for great looking skin. The scrub removes dead cells that can accumulate on the surface of your skin. There are various types of masks to choose from. As a guide, Clay, mud or peel-off masks are best for deep cleansing and perfect for oily skin, while dry skin will benefit from a rich, hydrating treatment. Use twice a week for best results.

Eye Care Products:

Because the skin around the eyes is the first to show signs of aging, there is definitely a case for using a special cream for this area. The skin around the eyes ages more quickly because it is thinner than that on the rest of the face, and so is less able to retain moisture. If you use your regular moisturizer around the eye area you could end up with puffy, irritated eyes, while rich lotions can block the glands. Most eye products have multiple benefits, targeting the common problems associated with the skin around the eyes like fine lines, dark circles and puffiness.

Anti-Oxidant Products:

Antioxidants are part of the body's natural defence system, derived from vitamins A,C and E. Vitamins A,C and E have been proven to help improve the effects of aging. These important anti-oxidants help fight free radicals and provide important vitamins to the skin.

Night Cream:

According to our internal clocks, different body cells are more active at certain times of the day. Skin cells do their repair work most effectively at night. Research shows that skin cell regeneration almost doubles at night, peaking between 23:00 and 04:00. Production of collagens (the skins natural support structure) is boosted, harmful free radicals are destroyed and cell damage is rectified. The latest night creams are designed to maximize the nigh time repair process and are generally more nourishing than a day cream.

Exfoliation:

Exfoliation is the removal of the oldest dead skin cells that cling to the skin's outer most surface. Exfoliation is an important part of both facial and body treatments. Our largest organ of elimination, the skin sheds around five billion dead cells daily. One of the reasons young skin is so clear and radiant is because in it's prime, young healthy skin replaces itself naturally every 14 days. As age sets in this process slows until, at about age 40, the renewal cycle is increased to 30 days. If these dead skin cells sit on the surface of the skin, they clog the pores and make the complexion look dull. Removing them reveals clearer, brighter skin and restores suppleness and vigour by stimulating cell renewal.
There are two types of exfoliation:

Fragrances

A fragrance is a blend of extracts, alcohol and water; each perfume, cologne, fragrance, is characterised by the ratio of ingredients. A perfume has a different concentration of extracts to an Eau de Toilette (EDT). Perfume has the highest concentration, followed by Eau de Parfum (EDP) and Espirit de Parfum. Though they are less concentrated, the two latter fragrances leave an intense lingering scent. Eau de Toilette is much lighter, with the least concentrated fragrance being Eau de Cologne (EDC).
Cologne products are available for either men or women, and are sometimes mistaken for aftershave, which is actually a formula containing moisturiser, an antiseptic agent, and perfume. In addition, aftershave can be a gel, lotion or liquid.
