Jaazibiyat – Skincare at its finest!

Published

on

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

Before and After ( the entire process takes up to one hour)

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.

Dr. Kamran of Jaazibiyat

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.

This was the blood drawn from my arm.

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.

Beauty Essentials You All Need This Summer

Published

on

It’s good form to clean out your beauty bag every season, tossing expired beauty products, and relegating non-essentials to your vanity. Your summer beauty bag should be lean, and TSA-friendly, just in case your wanderlust inspires a last minute flight to an exotic isle (hey, it’s summer, time to throw caution to the wind). Even if you’re not jet-setting, rising temperatures mean it’s time to switch up your skin care and makeup game. Come summer, the last thing you want is a melting face, so the following products strike the right balance of light coverage and maximum impact. If you’re prone to acne, you’ll want to peruse this list, as summer can wreak havoc on your pores if you’re not using the right products!

1. BIODERMA Sébium Hydrabio H20

The French beauty and skincare line BIODERMA owns the patent on micellar water, which is a formula that mimics the composition of the skin, and removes makeup. You don’t have to wash your face to achieve clean and balanced skin with this product, making it ideal for travel (bonus when you order the 100 ml/3.3 oz. TSA-friendly size). Plus, if acne is an issue, purifying agents like zinc gluconate and copper sulphate help regulate oil production, keeping pores clean.

2. La Roche-Posay Anthelios 60 Ultra Light Facial Sunscreen

Another score from the French pharmacy, Anthelios by La Roche Posay is dermatologist recommended and comes with a slew of beauty awards. Offering UVA and UVB protection, this formula is super lightweight and dries to a matte finish, so you can wear under makeup or alone, and no one will know what a stellar job you’re doing protecting your skin. (Tip: don’t forget your neck)

3. bareMinerals Faux-Tan All Over Face Color

Mineral copper complex, aloe vera and vegetable-derived emollients make this bronzing self-tanner an ideal choice for your summer beauty bag. Get a sun-kissed glow, without potential sun damage. The product stays on for five to seven days, deepens if you reapply, and is safe for acne-prone skin because it doesn’t clog pores.

4. Cinema Secrets Professional Brush Cleaner 

Dirty makeup brushes can cause break-outs, especially in the warm months when you might be applying makeup to a sweaty face (touch-ups, people, touch-ups). How often should you clean your makeup brushes? “From a dermatologist’s perspective, I would like to see daily brush washing, so bugs and old make-up doesn’t accumulate,” Greg Goodman, associate professor and dermatologist at the Dermatology Institute of Victoria tells BuzzFeed Life. With that in mind, Cinema Secrets Professional Brush Cleaner in TSA-friendly size is ideal for your summer makeup bag.

5. Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara

A waterproof mascara is a summer must, because there’s no reason to go bare-lashed to the pool. This formula is truly waterproof (and best removed with an oil-based cleanser) and the brush adds a nice curl to lashes.

6. Tarte Cheek Stain, Awakening

If you want to keep your summer beauty bag lean, use a product that can multi-task. Tarte cheek stain can double as a lip color too.

  1. The Disprin Face Mask (YES, you read that right!)

Recommended to us by a friend, we were shocked at the results. If you want to achieve tighter skin and close down those pores, then apply this twice a week.

How to make it:

  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 Disprin crushed
  • 1 tbsp Besan
  • 1 tbsp Yoghurt
  • Dash of Rose Water

Mix all ingredients in a bowl till it forms a paste. Apply to clean face, wait ten minutes and re-apply another layer. Let it stay another ten minutes and then gently scrub it off with water.

2. Oatmeal and vinegar mask

This mask will do wonders for you if you have oily skin. Apply once a week.

How to make it:

  • 3 tablespoons of oatmeal
  • ¼ cup of hot water
  • 1 teaspoon of honey
  • 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar

Wash your face with warm water to allow the pores to open up and remove and makeup. Pour the hot water onto your oatmeal and then combine it with honey. At the end, mix the vinegar and apply the mask while it is still warm. Rinse off after 15 minutes and then wash your face with cold water.

3. Citrus avocado mask

Avocados are somewhat an underdog of the fruit family with so many benefits. This mask is great for evening out pigmentation and adding a glow to your face. Apply twice a week


How to make it:

  • ½ of an avocado, mashed
  • ½ of a lemon, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil

This mask is super refreshing and will leave your face feeling smooth and skin tones evened out. Mix all the ingredients together and apply evenly to your face and neck. Rinse after 15 minutes and moisturize with your daily face cream (preferably NIVEA)

4. Chocolate Coffee Mask

Made from antioxidant-rich cocoa, chocolate has become known for its heart-healthy benefits. These beans are loaded with polyphenols, catechins, and flavonols, a powerful antioxidant that helps protect the skin, increases blood flow to the skin, keeps the skin hydrated and maintains the skin’s elasticity.

How to make it:

  • 1 tsp of instant coffee
  • 1 tsp of cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp of honey
  • Plain yogurt (enough to make a smooth paste)

Sounds appetizing right? But don’t stuff your face just yet! Combine all ingredients and spread your mixture evenly on your clean, dry face. Avoid your eyes, eyebrows, hairline and lips when you apply your mask and keep it on for 15 minutes before washing it off to reveal more beautiful skin.
