Skinnyjab, founded by Caroline Balazs, is coming up to its 2nd birthday in February. The company has been a phenomenal success due to the dedication and support of The Skinnyjab® Team for over 6000 patients.
Over the coming weeks, please watch this space for when Skinnyjab® launches their first retail outlet in Cheadle. Sister company Slimcare Medical®, for clinical obesity and health related issues, has just opened its doors near Stepping Hill Hospital in Stockport. Due to the medical products involved, we have our own clinics and do not operate from beauty salons. My Skinnyjab® journey started months ago, when I first researched what Skinnyjab® was, and I wish I’d started it then, but I didn’t!
Roll on a few months to the day I went wedding dress shopping. I was 5ft 2 inches and 11st 5lbs, so felt like a hippo in a tutu. Not even a £3,000 dress could give me a waist. I got through a whole box of tissues that day, and unfortunately my tears were not happy ones. I left the day feeling huge and ugly and not wanting to talk about the experience again. I found a beautiful dress but was horrified by how I looked in it.
So I did what most people do after that – found a local liposuction surgeon and booked in for a consultation.
In the consultation I was drawn all over, and told for a huge amount of money, I could have 4lbs of fat sucked out, but that I would be left with saggy skin on my stomach, and I’d be bloated and need to wear a full body compression garment for 6 weeks. A compression garment on my summer holiday with the family was not the look I was going for!
On the walk from the consultant’s office to the car, I rang Skinnyjab®. I couldn’t get to a clinic, so I booked in for a online video consultation for 4pm that day!!
I had my free consultation and was so happy with the information that I decided to go ahead. I was then shown how to use the pen and had all my questions answered.
48 hours later my pen arrived in the post, with all my support, diet plans and aftercare, all contained in a handy glossy folder, I was good to go and get started on The Skinnyjab Programme.
For the first few days I felt a little sick after eating, but that subsided quite quickly. A few evenings I would get mild heartburn, but a spoon of Gaviscon and that went away.
One week in and I’d lost 7lbs, by week 3, I was 16lbs down. I’ve now completed my 2 pens and I’ve lost 23lbs in total, at a fraction of the cost of liposuction!
I went back to try the beautiful wedding dress on as a very svelte size 10. Not only do I love the dress, but I now love me in the dress too! I am so excited
for all my friends and family to see me in it on my big day. Goodbye hippo in a tutu!
My Skinnyjab Story started with a visit to Harley St to meet Caroline and the team. I was in a panic as my Vera Wang dress from the states had arrived, which I couldn’t fit into and it couldn’t be altered either! With my wedding in Vegas only 6 weeks away, I was in a desperate state.
During the consultation, Caroline calmed me down, she was so nice, warm and funny, I immediately relaxed. She was up for the challenge and assured me that I would be in the dress for my wedding day. I was still apprehensive, but I had no choice but to go ahead and trust her She was right and I was in my dress, looking fabulous having lost 1st and 10lbs in just six weeks!!.
