ABOUT HEAVEN BY DEBORAH MITCHELL
Heaven skin care by Deborah Mitchell is a high end luxury range of anti ageing, all natural skincare containing organic ingredients, which have been developed for a radiant, flawless complexion and to help heal skin conditions from blemishes to eczema. Heavens award winning skincare has amassed a celebrity following for its range of products and treatments including Dannii Minogue, Emilia Fox, Michelle Pfeiffer and even members of the Royal Family.
Heavens signature product the Bee Venom Mask has gained a worldwide reputation as the natural alternative to Botulinum Toxin. Which is the most acutely toxin substance known. It positions itself as a revolutionary organic cream that works to control the facial muscles for immediate lifting, tightening and firming , whilst targeting frown lines and wrinkles. No bees are harmed in the process of extracting venom, rather they sting a pane of glass with an electric charge running through it, whereby the venom is collected and the bees survive with their stings intact.

ABOUT UNIVERSAL CONOUR WRAP
Our world-famous Classic Body Wrap has been a favourite for over 25 years, due to its incredible instant inch loss results and unique inch loss guarantee. It’s powerful inch loss results are thanks to our natural Classic Clay Solution combined with specialist wrapping techniques.
Your Classic Body Wrap treatment comes with the guarantee that you will lose at least 6 inches or pay nothing, although average inch loss from the first treatment is 10 -14 inches. Our Classic Body Wrap is a full body treatment taking around 2 hours and is always performed by highly trained therapists.
Before the treatment, your therapist will measure you at particular points on the body.
Bandages which have been pre-soaked in our Classic Clay Solution are then applied using specialist wrapping techniques.
You then wear a Vinyl suit to keep warm while you lie back and relax for an hour while the treatment gets to work. You could use this time to get more out of your trip to the salon and indulge in additional treatments such as a facial or manicure.
After 60 minutes your bandages are removed, your therapist will re-measure and you’ll be amazed by your inch loss result.
To experience the full benefits of our Classic Body Wrap, we recommend a course of 3 – 5 treatments taken at least 7-10 days apart.
The combination of unique natural Classic Clay Solution and specialist body wrapping techniques are what make our Classic Body Wrap so successful. The clay solution draws out toxins whilst the wrapping technique actively compressing the soft fatty tissues. This creates an instant inch loss, firming and body sculpting effect.
After your treatment, the Classic Clay Solution remains in the pores of the skin and your inch loss can continue for 3 – 4 days. We recommend during this time to wash only with tepid water, although this is optional.
This is not a water loss treatment. In fact, we recommend you drink water regularly after your treatment to enhance detoxification, flushing the toxins from your body.
ABOUT SKINBASE MICRODERMABRASION
What is microdermabrasion? The SkinBase™ Facial microdermabrasion treatment uses a stream of non-allergenic crystals to remove your skin’s outermost layers of dead cells. Your therapist will use the handset to direct the stream of crystal over the treatment area and, where necessary, target specific zones. The handset then uses a mild suction to draw away the crystal and skin debris to reveal your new and improved complexion.
The SkinBase™ Facial is chemical free and non-invasive yet achieves amazing results revealing younger, healthier looking skin from the very first treatment. The skin’s appearance is further improved through increased collagen & elastin production as your body produces a new layer of skin.
ABOUT DERMAL ROLLERS
Skin Needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy) is the latest skin renewal treatment to restore the healthy youthful appearance of your skin and reduce scarring minimal downtime compared with other procedures. Skin Needling can provide excellent results but is much less invasive and does not require the removal of the epidermis (the outer layer of skin). The healing time is therefore significantly shorter and there is no post-treatment skin sensitivity to UV light.
The Boston Medical Group Dermal Roller SR is a convenient multipurpose device used for the treatment of various skin conditions such as acne scarring, fine lines, enlarged pores, hyper-pigmentation or just improving skin radiance, without the expense or downtime of more invasive treatments such as deep peels or surgery.
