Tatler article - The Last Beauty Taboo Features Kamini Beauty

Stubble Trouble

If you're having a bad facial-hair day, these are the surefire ways to solve the problem

Facial hair is the last taboo. We can discuss cellulite, pelvic floors and Brazilian waxing but those evil little chin hairs (that you somehow never notice until they are waving in the breeze - why is that?) remain a shameful secret. Here's the tell: if you spot a woman pensively stroking her chin with one finger she has definitely identified a rogue sprouter and is counting the seconds till she can forage in her bag for her tweezers. But plucking can make it so, so much worse.

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)

Best for
Brunette moustachios.

With high-speed pulsing flashes of light that heat up and burn the hair follicle.

The lowdown
Known for her immaculate and flattering eyebrow threading, beauty therapist Kamini is in fact an expert on all parts hairy. She calls herself 'the plucking police' because she says that it makes things so much worse. And she is extremely strict about this. She threads using her uniquely light and pain-free feathering method to train the plucked and invigorated follicle into a docile state and then she blasts it with her IPL laser gun. The light is attracted to the melanin pigmentation in the hair (which is why it is much more successful on brown or black bristles) and burns it using intense heat, which you hardly feel at all. It took our tester three visits to achieve a much smoother top lip and sideburn area and Kamini reckons that a couple more blasts over the coming months will nuke the remaining hairs.

Venus Swan RF & MP2 Cosmetic and Aesthetic Treatments - now available from Kamini Beauty Salon

Kamini Beauty brings you the future!

Announcing... The Venus (Mp)2, where injections are a thing of the past

As leaders in the field of beauty, we aim to provide our loyal and valuable clients with the latest treatments, merged with cutting-edge technology.

So, how does the Venus work?

The Venus (MP)2 is the latest technology in skin-tightening, anti-ageing, circumferential-reduction and cellulite-reduction.

Its innovative synergy of Magnetic Pulses and Radio Frequency delivers superior results, penetrating into the hyperdermis due to 3D heat. The heat from the applicator activates the fibroblasts into action, whose job it is to stimulate collagen and elastin production.

This promotes the reduction of fine lines, tightens and plumps the skin back to its original state, giving back your youthful appearance. Amazed!! You will be!!

So what do I do next?......

Contact the salon to confirm your appointment and, just in case you require any further information regarding the Venus treatments, more details are given below to help answer any basic questions you may have.

So be the first to experience this extraordinary unique treatment with long-term benefits; you won't be disappointed.

Venus Swan

Aging skin affects two major biological phenomenas:

  1. There is a progressive reduction in the number of capillary loops. This leads to a decrease in dermal micro-circulation, which is responsible for supplying cells with oxygen & nutrients. This affects the normal function of dermal fibroblasts.
  2. Depletion of fibroblasts, which are responsible for collagen & elastin synthesis.

Correcting the Biological Phenomena that Cause Aging:

(MP)2 is a unique technology that can reverse the effects of aging skin by combining Pulse Magnetic Fields and RF. Pulse Magnetic Fields increase FGF-2 production, a growth hormone (responsible for the creation of minute blood vessels) and the proliferation of dermal fibroblasts. Simultaneously RF increases collagen and elastin synthesis by causing controlled thermal damage in the dermis and stimulating the self repair mechanisms of skin tissue.

Clinically proven (MP)2 uses proprietary technology to create a highly efficient and tightly woven energy matrix. This dense energy matrix penetrates multiple layers of the dermis heating it from the inside out. Complete skin penetration ensures exponentially improved clinical efficacy and produces clearly visible results.

Venus Swan also incorporates B.E.A.M TM (Bio Electrical Acceleration Management) technology which is a proven system that works in harmony with the natural processes of the body, utilising those hidden capabilities.

Bio – Building and conditioning muscles is an instinctive response to the repeated contraction of muscle fibres. As the muscles contract, the fibres restructure and build on top of themselves. The restructured muscles are stronger and take up less space.

Electrical – Pulses from B.E.A.M TM imitate the body’s own natural electrical signals from the nervous system. B.E.A.M TM is an external trigger for muscle activation stimulating and controlling the contraction of specific muscles or muscle groups.

Acceleration - B.E.A.M TM accelerates the body’s own natural process producing superior results in less time. Since B.E.A.M TM communicates directly with the muscles, they can perform more controlled contractions in less time. The higher rate of contraction increase blood circulation and improves metabolism for optimal results.

Management – Venus Swan’s unique management system allows therapist to control this bio-electrical process. With precise adjustments, the advanced software synchronizes and customizes each micro parameter of the pulses for accurate and measurable clinical results.

The (MP)2 energy matrix initiates a lipolysis process. During this process triglyceride splits to glycerol and fatty acids reducing the fat cell volume. The lipolysis process will be completed once the body disposes the fatty acids. Combining B.E.A.M TM and (MP)2 treatments stimulates muscle activation and will instantly release fatty acids preventing them from returning to the fat cells.

Experience Painless Treatment Venus Swan promotes natural skin healing without injuring delicate tissue. No other device is capable of offering measurable results with a relaxing massage-like experience.

Experience Medical Grade Technology (MP)2 harnesses the power of Magnetic Pulse Technology, which is clinically proven to improve dermal micro-circulation by encouraging the stimulated growth of new collagen.

Experience Safety Venus Swan delivers a risk free treatment that does not harm the epidermis. (MP)2 combines 8 energy waves into a single matrix to efficiently reduce temperature peaks. The Venus Swan treatment is so safe that there is no need for cooling gels or sprays.

Experience Total Satisfaction For the first time an aesthetic device can provide real clinical results without pain. Clients will notice immediate and enjoy the long term change in skin texture and quality.

Experience a Revolution in Applicator Technology The Venus Swan’s body and face applicators represent a turning point in the aesthetic industry. The applicators are specially designed to work well with client’s skin topography.
