If summer means sweltering away in mid-day heat wrapped in a jumper and boots, or if you seem to be spending a fortune trying to find that miracle foundation, you’ve probably got a few imperfections to hide. Surgery is a drastic option, but there are other means. Clifton Medi Spa could be the ticket to a cooler, care-free summer and a healthier bank-account. Specialists in “non-surgical Cosmetic and Health Treatments”, they offer a “highly professional skilled environment” to satisfy your health and beauty concerns.
The company recognises the daunting and often unnecessary prospect of going under the knife. “We don’t do surgery, it’s non-invasive,” emphasises owner and podiatrist Eirian Jones. “We have leaders in the field of Sculptra and we offer a complete range of Skinceutical and Agerax products”, which means that you can smooth out those creases, revitalise your skin or repair scar tissue without the risks of surgery.
The team of doctors provide honest advice and guidance through procedures that include dermal fillers for lines and wrinkles; peels and microdermabrasion that combat sun damage, scars and age spots, and injections that fight fat. Their laser treatment removes hair and resurfaces unhealthy skin and scleotherapy sessions remove unsightly veins.
Clifton Medi Spa also offer complimentary health therapies. Dr Kang Nian Dong, whose specialist skills were put to use by the Maltese government, provides Chinese medicine and acupuncture to ease symptoms caused by arthritis, asthma, acne, eczema, depression, psoriasis, IBS, insomnia and hayfever. Shan Jones assists Eirian with podiatry and chiropody, dealing with nail and fungal infections, joint deformity, arthritis and foot-related injuries. The ancient practice of colon hydrotherapy is offered by Jane Beresford-Huey, which promotes weight loss and cleanses one of the most sensitive organs in the body. Katharina Yeadon offers a range of reflexology sessions and for those wanting to treat themselves, Alison Cook provides a range of beauty therapies including facials, waxing, massage, manicures and pedicures.
