Q: Tell us a little bit about your business, The Dental Spa.

J: I took over the dentist practice four years ago from Dr Forbes and we offer the full range of dentistry services.  We pride ourselves on our gentle and natural approach to your teeth. We can work with you to understand your needs and your budget too. I have also been administering wrinkle treatments, Botox and fillers since 2007.  I’m constantly revisiting and learning new techniques, all of which you can benefit from, we try and make any visit to us enjoyable as possible.

M: I  joined the team earlier this year and I look after the laser treatments, along with Joanna. Laser Spa. As an experienced fully qualified beauty therapist I appreciate how powerful the Cynosure laser we use is.  It’s an incredible machine which covers many treatment options; unwanted hair removal, spider and thread vein removal from the face and legs and skin renewal which includes help with age spots, sun damage and wrinkles. It’s the most effective laser in Jersey!

Q: Can you explain what’s different about the Cynosure laser?

M:  It’s currently the only one like it in the island, it isn’t your standard laser like that you might see being offered by beauty therapists, it is much stronger.  Because of this it requires extensive training and certification before you’re allowed to treat patients.

J:  We wanted to get a laser that would mean people can see real results from their treatments.

Q: What are the benefits of laser hair removal?

J: It’s a really cost effective way of permanently getting rid of unwanted hair, for both men and women.  I’ve been lucky enough to see the benefits for myself, as Michelle has been treating me, it’s also relatively painless too.

M: You’ll need around seven treatments and you’ll see the results very quickly.  If you add up the cost of waxing, something you’re going to have to keep doing for years, then laser, which can perhaps seem more expensive initially, is actually going to end up saving you money.  It’s also going to stop you having to worry about booking in time and appointments to keep on getting waxed and no more ingrown hairs either!

Q: Can you tell us what else we can expect when we make a visit to the Dental and Laser Spas?

J: Across the whole of the business we believe that it’s important to look after your inside as well as your outside.  We stock a variety of supplements to help your skin and teeth, supporting a good diet and nutrition.  They’re also great for boosting your immune system.

M: We also offer derma-roller treatments and chemical peels, which help with skin rejuvenating, fighting wrinkles, boosting skin elasticity and effective in scar treatment. To support these treatments we stock the Environ skin care range, launched in South Africa by a plastic surgeon they have a high concentration of vitamin A in them, which is like oxygen for the skin.  The products are scientifically researched and developed.  Because of this they aren’t sold online, but instead we will have a consultation to specifically tailor a routine for your skin type.  Thanks to the training I’ve had from Environ I can help guide you through this process, making sure you’re happy with the products you choose.

Q: So what do we need to do if we’d like to come and find out more about Laser or any of the other treatments you offer?

M: You can come in for a free consultation, where we can discuss what we can do for you, working with you to find the very best solution for the results you’d like to achieve.  We can also do a laser patch test, so you can experience how the treatment will feel and how you’ll react too.
