Customer of the Week: Palms Body Clinic
Being in the aesthetics industry, Janna Hayes is aware of the pressure put on people today to live up to unrealistic body standards. Palms Body Clinic is about keeping things real while providing reliable treatments for people who are finding that body image issues are stopping them from enjoying life.
Janna opened Palms Body Clinic in 2015 after falling in love with technology. After struggling with “stubborn fat” on her belly for years, Janna sought an option that could help her feel better from the inside out. Her answer? Clinically proven fat reduction and skin tightening treatments, that didn’t involve surgery.
Janna has always found it unnerving that people should feel so much pressure to look a certain way that they would cut themselves up and risk their health to achieve a body goal. After watching a Louis Theroux documentary on body image, she was inspired to do more research.
In this particular episode, Louis undergoes liposuction himself. She was totally intrigued. After a Google session, she stumbled across a new technology called Cryolipolysis.
Cryo involves taking fat cells down to freezing temperatures which causes a proportion of them to die and then be eliminated from the body via the lymphatic system. It’s a walk-in/walk-out, 1-hour procedure that, if done by a reputable practitioner who doesn’t cut corners, has minimal risks and fantastic results.
For Janna, it sounded too good to be true.
“It was just such a joy to find something that could help me get rid of stubborn fat — but that wasn’t a drastic measure involving thousands of dollars and surgery.”
Janna felt as though she’d found “a cheeky little cheat sheet” and she wanted to share her experience with others who may have lost their body confidence like she had.
Palms Body Clinic is all about just that — confidence. Their goal is to help people feel fabulous and inspire them to live life to the fullest.
The business invests in the very latest in body aesthetics technology to provide clients with safe and effective fat reduction and skin tightening. Everything they do is non-invasive so that means no surgery, no needles and no chemicals.
“We know that there are a lot of people out there that are seriously considering surgery or undergoing regular, painful injections. At Palms, we provide real and affordable alternatives without the risk.”
The business service list offers affordable and non-invasive alternatives to things like liposuction, face-lifts and injectables — encouraging people away from risky surgeries that require going under the knife.
Janna is aware that her clients are often at their most vulnerable, in that they are revealing parts of themselves that can make them feel self-conscious. Being a part of a process that supports these people in making the physical changes they want, while also encouraging a healthy lifestyle and mindset, is hugely rewarding for Janna and her team.
“Getting great results is so rewarding because the client’s whole demeanour changes and you can see just how much more confident and happy they feel.”
The team’s success comes down to their core values of integrity, honesty and respect as well as the high importance they place on customer relationships.
“I’ve learnt to trust my gut instincts so if I love it there’s a pretty good chance other people like me will too.”
Janna loves the responsibility of having her own business. Although there’s been a few hurdles and some really tough challenges to negotiate, Janna feels a huge sense of achievement from having built something from nothing.
Janna stresses that she’s not interested in churning out Barbie dolls or promoting an unrealistic body image. Rather, she just wants others to feel a boost in body confidence like she had.
“There’s definitely vanity involved but at the same time, at least for me, I actually spend less time thinking about my body now and that’s a very nice place to be.”
