Fight the flab in time for Summer

With Summer not too far away, it’s time to turn our minds to getting in shape for the warmer weather, eliminate those annoying pockets of stubborn fat and blast away signs of cellulite. Here’s our round-up of the treatments which can help you feel body confident in a flash:

Goodbye fat

If you are looking for fast, effective and safe weight loss, then Alevere is just the ticket. Designed by medics, Alevere combines diet with body contouring treatments to help break down stubborn fat and tighten loose skin. Alevere Therapy is tailored to your specific targets and nutritional needs, support is ongoing and results are fast.

Stubborn pockets of fat can be hard to shift, despite exercise and eating well. Cool Tech Fat Freezing can be used all over the body, including the back, tummy, love handles, hips, thighs, knees and arms. Totally non-invasive and pain free, Cool Tech works by creating a momentary vacuum which destroys fat cells, which are then eliminated through the body’s own lymph system.

Achieving a smoother contour

Velashape III is an incredible non-invasive body contouring treatment which combines three different energies to stimulate local circulation, cause localised deep heating to reduce fat and stimulate collagen production as well as increasing lymphatic drainage. This combination means that the circumference is reduced, toxins are removed, skin is tighter and stronger and the appearance of cellulite is improved. The perfect pre-summer treatment!

Why not try our incredible Bootyful package?! Designed to tighten, lift and shape your behind, Bootyful involves three stages: skin tightening using the award winning, non-invasive Exilis-Elite; light treatment to stimulate collagen growth for lifting and skin regeneration using Smartlux LED red light; lymph drainage and toxin removal using Endermologie . The result is a firmer, smoother and lifted behind. Bootyful!

The finishing touch

One of the joys of summer is being able to step out without coats and boots, and to enjoy the warmth on our skin. Summer clothes lend themselves to smooth, hair free skin, so now is the perfect time to start laser hair removal, ensuring smooth skin for summer and no hassle with constant shaving or waxing! Our Soprano Laser ICE hair removal system provides rapid, pain-free treatment with long lasting results. Suitable for all skin tones and most hair types, pop in for your patch test and look forward to a hair free summer!

Make the most of March

As we edge towards spring, there are signs of new life all around. The clocks go forward; we enjoy lighter, longer days; and look forward to warmer temperatures (hopefully!). March is a month for optimism – and to maximise your sense of wellbeing and elevate your mood, here are our top tips for the new season.

Boost your circulation
As we emerge from the depths of winter, our circulation often needs a boost in order to eliminate the toxins and fatty deposits that make us feel sluggish and tired. Try our dual-action Lipotripsy Shockwave treatment, which promotes blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, as well as stimulating collagen synthesis. This non-invasive, pain-free treatment uses radial waves to break down and eliminate fat cells, while tightening skin and improving elasticity. It’s the ideal treatment to get rid of stubborn fat deposits and blast away cellulite.

Power up!
Winter takes its toll on our immune systems, often leaving our bodies depleted of essential minerals, vitamins and amino acids. Our new Vitamin IV Infusions deliver these essential nutrients directly into the bloodstream, where they get to work immediately. A firm favourite of busy A-list celebrities such as Rihanna and Madonna, Vitamin IV Infusions can help to boost wellbeing, increase energy levels, lift your mood and hydrate your body. We offer four different combinations, so you can select the best option for your personal needs.

Peel and reveal
The drying effects of central heating and icy temperatures over the winter months can leave skin looking dull and tired. Refresh and boost skin tone and texture with our new range of TCA peels. Designed to help reduce melasma and hyperpigmentation, minimise lines and wrinkles and improve texture and hydration, our TCA peels can be tailored to your specific skin type and concern.

Eye want…
The delicate skin around the eye area is often the first to show signs of ageing, poor circulation and lack of hydration. The award-winning Exilis Elite treatment helps to lift and tighten the skin around the eyes, reducing fine lines and wrinkles and opening the eye area to help it appear more youthful. In addition, by improving the circulation, eye bags can be reduced and puffiness is eliminated. Or why not try the EndyMed Pro 3DEEP, a state-of-the-art radio-frequency skin tightening treatment? Using a specially adapted hand-piece for the eye area, EndyMed iFine, the skin around the eye is lifted and tightened as part of a super relaxing treatment. It also improves the circulation to banish dark circles, eliminate toxins and to calm any redness or inflammation. Eyes appear less hooded and the effects are both instant and long lasting.

Top tip!
Scientists are becoming increasingly aware that the reason we age and show signs of ageing is down to the shortening of telomeres, which are components at the end of our chromosomes. As these telomeres become shorter and shorter, our cells can no longer reproduce and our tissues start to degenerate, giving way to the telltale signs of ageing. Try our TA65 supplements and serum, which contain Telomerase, an enzyme which helps prevent telomere breakdown. The formula helps to calm skin redness, improve hydration, reduce fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin firmness. Ask in clinic for more information.

Stay focused in February

valentines-dayJanuary is finally over! The worst of the winter blues have passed, and spring is closer than you think. All of this makes February a great month to update your skincare and body regime (especially if you have something special planned for Valentine’s Day), so here is a round-up of our new and favourite treatments to keep you firmly on track in 2017.

Lose weight fast with Alevere

If you’re looking for fast, healthy and sustainable weight loss, look no further. We now offer Alevere Therapy – a weight loss and body transformation programme designed by doctors. Alevere combines a flexible eating plan with regular treatments that help to blast away stubborn pockets of fat and tighten loose skin (a common problem after significant weight loss). We offer plenty of support throughout the process, and Alevere helps to reeducate your eating habits and attitude to food, so the weight stays off. Call us for a consultation.

Rebalance your life with BHRT
So many women struggle with the effects of a hormone imbalance – but there is a solution to symptoms such as mood swings, fatigue, loss of libido, painful periods and PMS. Unlike conventional HRT, our Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) uses hormones that have the same chemical structure as naturally occurring hormones in your body – so they work better, with minimal side effects. Our BHRT is delivered by Dr Sangita Singh, who listens carefully to individual concerns and tailors treatment accordingly.

Be hair-free and carefree for summer
Avoid the endless, time-consuming chore of depilation and achieve smooth, permanently hair-free skin with our Laser Hair Removal treatment. We use only the latest, safest and most effective systems, including Soprano ICE – a quick and painless option with virtually no downtime. Over a course of treatment, body hair gradually decreases, freeing you from the need to shave, wax or use hair removal creams. Start your course now to be hair-free and carefree by the time the sun returns!

Step into the light
If the combination of winter temperatures outside and central heating inside have left your skin looking dull, dry and dehydrated, our Lightfusion photofacial is the ideal solution. Lightfusion combines state-of-the-art LED technology with a specially formulated hydrogel mask to deliver visible skin rejuvenation in just one session. This relaxing treatment increases collagen production, hydrates, plumps and brightens – in short, it’s the ideal winter treat for complexion perfection!

Give your health a shot in the arm
Loved by celebrities, Vitamin IV Infusions are now available at Jill Zander. The perfect antidote to the hectic pace of modern life, this treatment is ideal if you are looking to boost your wellbeing, increase your energy levels, lift your mood and stay hydrated. Vitamin IV Infusions are the fastest way to deliver essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids directly into your bloodstream. Choose from four different Infusions, and three specialist supplements. We’re even offering 25% off your first treatment until the end of February!

A Fresh Start

It’s that time of year when everyone longs to look and feel healthier, slimmer, fitter and firmer. So if you’re looking to kick-start your New Year Resolutions, here’s a round-up of the best skincare and body treatments we offer to help you achieve your goals.

Improve skin texture and tone

The winter months can certainly take their toll on skin, leaving it dull, dry and dehydrated. One solution loved by celebrities is the A-Lift. This uses a nano-current to boost circulation and stimulate collagen production, resulting in a firmer, more hydrated complexion with improved texture and tone.

For an all-round face treat, we recommend the Medik8 Superfacial Enzyme Treatment. This multi-tasking peel instantly brightens and exfoliates skin, reducing the appearance of pores, pigmentation and fine lines. Medik8 has created a comprehensive range of peels, each of which addresses a different complexion concern, such as dullness, ageing or blemishes. As an added bonus, Medik8 products are available to purchase and take away for continued use within your home skincare routine.

Another excellent option to refresh and rejuvenate the face is our Thread Lift procedure. Sometimes known as the ‘lunchtime lift’, this uses fine, biodegradable threads to gently sculpt the face, neck and jaw. There’s no downtime – and the results are visible immediately. Our cosmetic physician Dr Meriem Martins, who has a masters degree in aesthetic medicine, performs our Thread Lifts. Dr Meriem maintains the highest professional standards and is known for her subtle yet effective anti-ageing results.

Blast away fat and smooth those lumps and bumps

For fast and effective fat removal from those problem areas that no amount of dieting and exercise seems to reduce, Cool Tech Fat Freezing is the ideal solution. This innovative treatment uses a vacuum to “freeze” and destroy fat cells, which are then removed from the body through the lymphatic system. It also boosts local circulation. Fat Freezing can be used all over the body on areas including stomach, love handles, thighs, bottom, arms – and even those difficult-to-treat knee dimples!

Another option for those looking to smooth away lumps and bumps, and tackle that unsightly cellulite, is the Velashape III. This treatment combines vacuum technology, infrared light and bi-polar radio frequency to break down fatty deposits; lift and tighten skin; stimulate collagen synthesis; and boost circulation. It’s pain-free, non-invasive, and there’s no downtime – making this the perfect New Year body blaster!

If your New Year Resolution involves taking control of your weight, our new Alevere® Therapy is the ideal treatment for you. Not just another diet, Alevere® is a successful weight loss and body transformation programme – created by doctors – that gets fast, effective results. It combines a flexible, easy-to-follow eating plan that won’t leave you hungry or bored, with regular body contouring treatments that help to break down stubborn fat and tighten skin. Call us today to book your doctor consultation, and begin your journey to weight loss, health and happiness.

Lastly, don’t forget we have a fabulous range of promotions running throughout this month to help you achieve your New Year goals – or just provide some much-need pampering throughout the dark days of January! Happy New Year!

Welcome to our winter wonderland!

partygirlChristmas might well be the most magical time of the year, but the combination of central heating, cold weather and sugary seasonal treats can conjure up all sorts of problems for your skin. Fear not – we have a wide selection of treatments and products that can help restore glow and radiance to dull, dehydrated complexions.

In praise of peels
Ideal for combating dullness, a skin peel sloughs away dead cells and promotes natural skin cell turnover. Why not try our new Medik8 Superfacial? This uses natural enzymes to exfoliate the skin, reduce dryness, improve elasticity, boost collagen production, and reduce the appearance of pores, pigmentation and fine lines. There’s no downtime involved, so it can even be performed in your lunch hour. Medik8® offers a comprehensive range of peels, to address different skin concerns, so there really is something for everyone.

If you’re after skin like the A list, try the well-loved A-Lift, which uses a nano-current to stimulate lymphatic drainage, collagen production and muscle firmness. Skin texture is improved and the natural repair process gets a kick-start, leading to healthier, more radiant skin – just in time for Christmas!

Another celebrity favourite, the Hydrafacial, combines six different steps to deliver instant, visible skin refinement, hydration and radiance. It’s also super relaxing! The Hydrafacial is available in a variety of versions (HydraFusion, HydraBright, HydraLight and HydraTight) to target different beauty concerns.

Lighten and brighten
Our beauty treatments work so well they have even been hitting the headlines recently! Last month our lightfusion™ photofacial was featured in the Daily Mail’s Ultimate Guide to Anti-Ageing – scoring 8 out of 10 for effectiveness! Lightfusion™ features a special hydrogel mask and state-of-the-art LED technology, and is clinically proven to treat fine lines and hyperpigmentation; improve skin tone and texture; and reduce inflammation. No wonder it’s proving to be one of our most popular treatments! Daily Mail journalist Anna Maxted commented: “My skin, normally dry verging on flaky, feels beautifully plump, soft and hydrated and my complexion looks brighter.”

Lightfusion™ incorporates the use of Vitage, a high-performance anti-oxidant range that suits a wide variety of skin types and conditions, and can be taken home after treatment to continue your skin health journey. A firm favourite in-clinic is the Medik8® Glow Oil, which deeply hydrates, brightens and nourishes the skin, strengthening and protecting it from environmental damage. We can’t think of a better treat for skin at this time of year!
