Cheek Mediaspa in Kings Langley Hertfordshire

Cheek Medispa, an aesthetic clinic in Kings Langley has introduce a new high-tech treatment, ‘B-Tonic’, that simultaneously burns fat whilst toning and sculpting targeted areas of the body.

Suitable for both men and women, Cheek Medispa are now offering a healthy way to manage weight and rebalance the body after months of lockdown which has caused a surge in weight gain across the country. The B-Tonic treatment words by stimulating muscle growth as well as burn fat more efficiently and rapidly than exercising.

In just one 30 minute session the treatment area is induced to over 36,000 supermaximal muscle contractions, which forces the muscle tissue to adapt by remodelling its internal structure, providing tangible results right after the first treatment. After a complete B-Tonic treatment of 4 sessions, which can act on stubborn fat pockets on the buttocks, tights, arms and abdomen, clients see an average 4cm circumference reduction.

“The hands-off treatment technology keeps contact to a minimum,” says Cheek MediSpa Director and Aesthetician, Gemma Depiano.

“Once it’s been set up our therapists can leave the room and let it run until near the end of the treatment –  so it’s perfect for anyone who is still wary of getting back to the gym or exercise classes but is looking to tone up.”

She adds: “The Coronavirus pandemic has reinforced the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle and the B-Tonic treatment isn’t just for those looking for a toned physic but is ideal for anyone looking to target localised fat to improve overall health and wellbeing.”

Meet Katie Godfrey... Bedfordshire Beauty and Hair expert

Katie Godfrey is the powerhouse behind the KG brand, single-handedly building her empire from a single salon bought aged 19 as a school leaver with no qualifications, to a chain of salons, a UK-wide beauty training academy, an eyelash product range and a salon coaching business. 

Katie left school at 13 after being bullied, but this only made her more determined to succeed in life. Her Bedfordshire beauty salon became a go-to destination and after being named Eyelash Technician of the Year in 2014, Katie started to rack up the awards winning 15 to date, and securing press coverage nationally including the likes of OK and Hello, as well as pampering various celebrities. 

Now you’re as likely to find her judging awards as winning them – she’s co-owner of the “World Lash University” conference & awards which is partnered with “The Lash Games” at Olympia Beauty, and has her own podcast, “The Life Of KG”, aimed at those in the hair and beauty space but also relatable to anyone in business. 

How Katie Godfrey expanded her brand

Going on to own a chain of franchise salons, Katie then sold these to focus on education, aiming to raise standards across salons and within the industry. She launched KG Professional, a beauty training academy which now has branches in Bedfordshire, Southampton, Gloucestershire, Derbyshire, Milton Keynes, Sussex and Essex, and an eyelash product range.

Within 6 months of launch, the eyelash range was selling into 500 salons and is now sold globally. Katie was one of the first trainers in the UK to teach Russian Volume Lashes, flying to New York to learn and then bring the techniques back.

In addition to maintaining the salon and pro businesses, Katie is a dedicated business mentor and looks after over 35 salons. She started this side business 3 years ago after being inundated by businesses coming to her for help as a result of her success story – she offers 1-2-1 and group mentoring sessions, and aims to launch the first comprehensive online business course for the hair and beauty industry imminently. She talks regularly at colleges and events about her story and is passionate about motivating others to build their careers. She is one of the authors of number 1 best-selling book, ‘Extraordinary Women’, and co-owner of “Salon Franchise,” a consultancy company in the hair & beauty industry. 

Katie’s achievements are all the more impressive considering she has done this while single-handedly parenting her daughter. She is testament to the goals that can be reached with determination and hard work and is inspiring and helping many others to do the same.

Smile with a free teeth whitening makeover from Church Road Dental

Smile confidently with a *free* teeth whitening makeover

Welwyn Garden City’s Church Road Dental are giving our lucky readers the chance to win a dazzling free teeth whitening makeover worth over £400.

What is tooth whitening ?

Tooth whitening can be a very effective way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surface. It cannot make a complete colour change, but it may lighten the existing shade.

Deep Bleaching works by increasing the tooth’s permeability to oxygen which breaks down stain molecules. It is a combination treatment meaning that there is a 2 week home treatment followed by 1 hour visit at the dentist (optional).

Teeth are stained by the foods and drinks we consume. Smoking further stains teeth and the natural bright, white shade becomes darkened. Teeth whitening is a successful and simple method of lightening the colour of your teeth. The degree of whiteness achieved will vary from patient to patient and with the type of bleaching process chosen.

What are the benefits tooth whitening ?

One of the benefits of tooth whitened is an improvement in general self esteem, making us happier and more content.

Over time our teeth may become discoloured by certain foods that we eat, drinking coffee or red wine, smoking, and how well we brush and floss. Whitening can help by producing a younger looking effect. If we’re not embarrassed by or conscious of our teeth, we smile naturally and confidently. Smiling has been shown to improve mood by triggering the production of endorphins.

Dental professionals have noticed that patients who’ve had their teeth whitened tend to show an improvement in their oral health care routine. Experiencing the advantages of whiter teeth often leads us to take good care when brushing, flossing, and seeing our dentist for professional cleanings. Since good oral health can improve your overall health and prevent many diseases, this is by far the most important reason to consider teeth whitening.

How do I enter the competition ?

For a chance to win, follow or like Church Road Dental on Instgram or Facebook. Then share their teeth whitening post and tag TWO friends. More information is available upon request from Church Road Dental.
