Re-balance Your Body & Mind This Spring Time

Look after your wellbeing.

As the pace of life seems to increase at an alarmingly rapid rate, the need to make time for ourselves and to seek ways to achieve balance and harmony, as well as achieve a sense of well-being is fundamental to living a positive, happy and healthy life. Unfortunately, the multiple demands put on us daily, often leave us tired and stressed, with the inevitable knock on effects of hormone imbalance, poor diet, dull skin, extra weight and a depletion of essential vitamins and minerals.

Here at Jill Zander A Courthouse Medispa, we have collated a series of treatments that help you to re-balance body and mind, correct issues concerning skincare and weight and address hormone balance and well-being.

Keep your hormones in harmony.

For those that suffer the side-effects of hormonal imbalance, such as mood swings, PMS, weight gain and fluctuations, low libido, excessive body hair growth, painful and heavy periods and hot flushes,  life quality can be seriously reduced. Conventional Hormone Replacement Therapy uses synthetic hormones which can also have unwanted and unpleasant side effects for some women. Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy uses hormones with the same chemical structure as your own, thereby eliminating these unwanted side effects and works in harmony with your body to achieve hormonal balance. Our medical team are trained carefully so that they can work with you to create a tailor-made plan, which can be adjusted and adapted over time.

Lose weight and feel great.

Busy lives, hormonal imbalances and stress can lead to unwanted and stubborn weight gain. For this reason, we advocate Prolon, a fasting mimicking diet which provides the body with plant-based, nutritionally balanced food which nourishes the body whilst convincing it that it is fasting. It has been scientifically proven to beneficially change a wide range of biomarkers associated with ageing, poor health and inflammation – the knock of effects of this is better weight management, an improvement in immune function, healthier skin and a better feeling of well-being, amongst many other benefits. The Prolon meal plan is for five consecutive days every one to six months depending on your needs. Speak to a member of our team for a consultation to learn how Prolon can benefit you.

Give yourself a boost.

One of the most common side effects of a ‘too-busy’ lifestyle is a depletion of essential vitamins and minerals, impacting well-being at every level. Vitamins and minerals are necessary for growth, repair and the daily functioning of our bodies at an optimum level. Our diets are often lacking in the full range of required vitamins and minerals, and our bodies are unable to produce all that we need. Our range of Vitamin IV infusions are delivered directly to the bloodstream where they have an immediate impact on energy levels, mood and hydration. Our Vitamin IV infusions cater to those looking to reduce the signs of ageing and restore radiance and hydration; those looking to lose weight and increase energy levels; for those who need to detoxify the body; and those who need to replenish vital vitamins and minerals whilst enhancing energy. Our medical team will listen to your specific concerns and advise which IV infusion is best suited to your needs.

 

Show Yourself Some Love This February.

February is the month of love, and what better way to celebrate than indulging in our range of pampering, rejuvenating and highly effective treatments to have you looking and feeling your best.

Smooth out lumps and bumps

Improve body contours and smooth away annoying lumps and bumps so you can slip into your most appealing outfits with ease. Velashape III is the perfect no-downtime treatment which gets to work on toning, tightening and lifting the skin, reducing the appearance of cellulite and overall circumference of the area being treated. Using a combination of Infra-red light, Bi-polar frequency and vacuum, Velashape III is moved across the skin where it causes deep heating of the tissues, resulting in a lifting and tightening, as well as an increase of localised circulation to improve lymphatic drainage, reduce fluid retention and increase collagen deposition to strengthen the skin. It can be used on thighs, buttocks, love handles, tummy, saddlebags, arms, back-fat and knees.

Cool Tech is a totally non-invasive, pain-free treatment which destroys fat without harming any surrounding collagen and elastin fibres. It works by creating a vacuum over the area to be treated, which causes a momentary reduction in blood flow to cool the fat cells and destroy them. It is ideal for tummy fat and love handles, hips, thighs, knees, arms, buttocks and back rolls. Time to get rid of those annoying lumps and bumps!

Turn back the clock

Take years off with our rejuvenation treatments, restoring a more youthful, fresher you. Our non-invasive A-lift treatment works by applying nano-current to the face, which works in harmony with the body to re-energise the cells, lift and hydrate and stimulate collagen production for a firmer and healthier skin. Lines and wrinkles are reduced, and lymphatic drainage and micro circulation are increased which helps to detoxify and refresh the skin. No wonder it is a beauty editors favourite!

Why not try our incredible Thread Lift? Specialist doctors insert a biodegradable thread into the face, allowing a subtle manipulation and lifting of tissue. The whole procedure takes around 30 minutes and results are instant with little downtime. Skin texture is also improved, and the overall result is a natural looking, youthful lifting and rejuvenation.

Plump up the volume

Our team of medical specialists are on hand to advise you as to the best options with regards to Botox and Dermal Fillers – medical injectables which can reduce lines and wrinkles, restore lost volume to lips and cheekbones and add shape and contours where they are missing. We use only the best and safest products and our specialists are all medically trained to the highest level to ensure the outcome is both natural and effective. Speak to our team today to find out more.

 

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.

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!

The latest and greatest!

In line with our continuous commitment to bring you the very best in beauty and aesthetic treatments, we have been super busy over the past few months, exploring new products and procedures to ensure that we provide the most advanced specialist solutions for all your beauty needs. And now is the perfect time to update you on our latest and greatest developments, as you start to plan your prep for the party season ahead…

Get ready to bat those lashes, courtesy of our new treatment LVL Lashes. A firm favourite with celebs, LVL straightens your own lashes from root to tip, delivering length, volume and lift for up to eight weeks – without any extensions, false lashes or adhesives. And the inclusion of an eyelash tint means you don’t even need to wear mascara!

Our new Jessica GELeration nail treatment is a high-shine, long-lasting, soak-off gel nail polish that lasts for up to 21 days. The gentle formula also helps to protect the nail as it grows – leaving your nails stronger, healthier and looking amazing. The shade range is fantastic too!

We are also excited to introduce Skinrölla, an advanced micro-needling treatment that encourages skin regeneration and promotes collagen production. Skinrölla creates thousands of micro-channels in the skin, allowing serums and other treatments to enter its deepest layers for maximum efficacy. In addition, it stimulates the skin’s own natural repair system, making it an excellent treatment option for acne and other scars, fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks and hyperpigmentation. Skinrölla improves the overall texture of skin, leaving it looking healthy, radiant and youthful.

In terms of new products, we are thrilled to now be offering Medik8 peels. Medik8 is an award-winning cosmeceutical brand famous for its peels and topical treatments which are full of effective, scientifically-proven ingredients that target specific skin needs. Medik8 tackles a range of problems including uneven skin tone, skin ageing, pigmentation, acne, redness, dullness, dryness and blemishes. Medik8’s fast, visible results mean it’s recommended by leading doctors and dermatologists around the world. Ask in clinic for more details.

Another new treatment that is already proving to be extremely popular is our Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). So many women suffer from the unpleasant side effects of unbalanced hormones, which are often associated with the menopause or PMT. These symptoms include hot flushes, mood swings, fatigue, low libido, night sweats and insomnia – but there is a solution! BHRT rebalances the body with minimal unwanted side effects, using hormones that are identical to your own (unlike standard HRT, which uses synthetic hormones). Don’t suffer in silence – let us help you feel like yourself again!

If you fancy the idea of turning back time – but without going under the knife – then our new Thread Lift procedure could be exactly what you’re looking for. Sometimes known as the “lunch-time lift”, this refreshes and rejuvenates the face using fine, biodegradable threads which are gently inserted under the skin, with no stitches or invasive surgery. The results are instant and there’s no downtime.

Lastly, if you’re fretting about how to fit into your party frock this season, then our new Alevere Therapy might be the answer. Created by doctors, this is a life-changing rapid weight loss and body transformation programme. It combines an easy-to-follow eating plan with in-clinic treatments that smooth away stubborn lumps and bumps – tightening skin and shaping your body contours as you lose the weight. It’s a winning combination.

Watch this space for even more innovative and effective treatments to come!
