Jaazibiyat – Skincare at its finest!
Jaazibiyat is a state of the art aesthetic clinic that provides the best, comprehensive treatment array for skin solutions. If you’re looking to get minor, non-invasive treatments then this is the place for you.
I met with Dr. Kamran for my consult and decided on the Vampire Facial. It is also known as a blood-facial or PRP facial, involves extracting blood from a patient’s arm and using a centrifuge to separate the platelets and plasma from the red blood cells. These platelets are then injected back into your skin through problem areas of the face. In my experience, i had some scars which have gone away over the span of one week but I could instantly feel the difference. My skin was definitely even tones and brighter instantly after it was done
We sat down with Dr. Kamran to learn about more services they had to offer and here is what we discussed:
Tell us a little about your field of work?
I purely practice minimally invasive aesthetics, skin care, aesthetic gynecology and weight management. This includes procedures like Botox, fillers, PRP, diet plans, thread lifts etc. You will be amazed to know that how much can be achieved by combining procedures.
Our clinic however offers all aesthetic solutions under one roof. Other doctors do procedures that I don’t do myself.
Where did you get certified?
I have been trained by some of the best in this field. I got my diploma in aesthetics from University of Niece. Another diploma is from the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine. I was at the University of Surrey for my first post graduation. Besides this I have numerous international certifications in the field of my expertise. I travel twice a year for either refreshing my knowledge or learning new areas of aesthetic practice.
What made you open Jaazibiyat in Lahore ?
I saw the need of a complete aesthetic solution clinic under one roof in Lahore. At Jaazibiyat-Aesthetics Redefined every client is special. We give proper time for consultation and treatment unlike others. I believe in zero wait time that is why we work by appointment. This is one of the very few clinics where all support staff are qualified nurses. We always add a special ingredient of love and affection in all our procedures. For us you are special. Our belief is that every client is different and therefore we customize the treatment plan to the need of the client. We do not have a one size fits all strategy like others.
What treatments do you offer ?
We offer all aesthetic treatments, lasers for hair removal and skin conditions, skin care regimens, weight solutions, aesthetic gynecology, hair transplant and the list goes on.
Tell us about the vampire facial?
As the name suggests it’s to do with blood. The myth is that Vampires don’t grow old as they drink blood, hence the name. Scientifically it’s PRP( platelet rich plasma) that contains a lot of growth factors. Injecting PRP helps in different conditions from arthritis to facial rejuvenation to stopping hair fall. The important thing to understand is the PRP system being used as that dictates the quality of the Platelets. Then comes the injection technique. We have one of the best PRP system at Jaazibiyat.
We heard your clinic is starting microblading and many other new procedures, could you tell us a little about them?
Yes we have started micro-blading and eye lash extension. The earlier is for people who have thin brow or thinking of scalp hair and no other treatment option is there. Lash extension is a benefit for those who want heavier and longer lashes to add to their beauty. In the very near future we will be bringing in more treatments that are available internationally but lacking in Pakistan.
You can find the Jaaazibiyat Clinic at 10-Q Gulberg 2, Extension M.M Alam Road, Lahore.

What is the Panchkarma treatment?
Panchakarma is the purification therapy used in Ayurvedic medicine The word panchakarma means five actions and refers to five procedures intended to intensively cleanse and restore balance to the body, mind, and emotions. Panchakarma is used by Ayurvedic physicians as a treatment of a wide variety of health conditions and as a preventative measures
The first step of any Ayurvedic treatment is a thorough examination and diagnosis by an Ayurvedic practitioner, who determines the type and extent of panchakarma treatment required. According to Ayurvedic theory, physical and emotional traits are classified as three doshas—vata, kapha, and pitta. Each individual has all three doshas with one predominating. If an imbalance occurs, diseases/conditions appear. Panchakarma rebalances the doshas, bringing them back to equilibrium and the individual back to good health. The physician may prescribe herbal remedies and recommend dietary and lifestyle changes that may be enacted before, during and after panchakarma.
