Brand New Revolutionary Skin Rejuvenation Technology

Posted in Promotions & News on Thursday, 01 February 2018.

Don't hide behind your skin concerns

pamperbanana Metro Spa is delighted to inform you that we can now offer facial Laser Rejuvenation Treatments in Bristol using the innovative and award winning Lynton 3JUVE.

pamperbanana Metro Spa is the ONLY skin clinic in Bristol to offer this 3 in 1 technology!

Lynton are a UK manufacturer of medical-grade aesthetic technology originating from the University of Manchester, listed as a preferred supplier to the NHS with over 23 years’ experience in manufacturing laser equipment with excellent clinical results.

The new 3JUVE® platform uses three independent skin rejuvenation technologies in combination, Radio Frequency, Intense Pulsed Light and Fractional Resurfacing to help address common facial skin concerns, giving clients a complete and natural-looking facial rejuvenation result.

3JUVE® is an entirely customisable treatment, allowing your therapist to use the different technologies in the varying degrees required. It has been designed specifically to provide each and every client with the regime that best accommodates their skin to address their concerns. Even better, downtime is minimal with no scarring or invasive procedures required.

Resurface | Fine Lines & Wrinkles treatment Bristol

Resurface is the most powerful technology used targeting the dermis (second layer of skin.) Resurface causes micro thermal wounds in the skin, resulting in dramatic skin renewal as retexture takes place to the surface of the skin during the healing process. This helps to smooth out any uneven skin, leading to a ‘silky’ soft complexion. In addition to skin renewal, Resurface will help in the relaying and replacement of collagen fibres to dramatically reduce even the most stubborn lines & wrinkles.

Rebright | Red Veins & Pigmentation treatment Bristol

Ageing skin isn’t just about the lines and wrinkles we incur as we age but also the noticeable discolouration of our skin through various external factors, such as sun damage which can cause pigmentation, sun spots, vascular outbreaks and areas of redness (most people get these around the nose/cheeks as they age.), Diet, general health and medication can also factor in how our skin looks. Rebright technology selectively heats and destroys these blemishes to encourage a flawless, ‘airbrushed-like’ appearance.

Remodel |Skin Tightening & Lifting treatment Bristol

As we get older, gravity has a massive detrimental effect on our skin. A loss of firmness and sagging around the eyes and jawline (sometimes referred to as jowls) are usually the most obvious signs of ageing. Remodel utilises radio waves which cause micro-vibrations within the skin tissue to stimulate fibroblast cells which then produce new collagen and elastin, creating stronger, firmer dermal tissue. This leads to a subtle lifting and tightening of the skin that can greatly improve the loss of firmness giving you an overall more youthful appearance.

Prices for individual treatments and courses are determined on consultation as different combinations of treatments may be required to achieve the best results.

A patch test is required and full medical history must be disclosed.

Where Can I Buy Vitamin A or Retinol Products in Bristol?

Posted in Promotions & News on Tuesday, 09 January 2018.

Vitamin A Products and Treatments in Bristol

Why Retinol is so good for the Skin?

Vitamin A or Retinol is vital in everyone’s skincare routine as a way to slow down and help to correct the effects of ageing. Retinol helps to normalise and rebuild the skin as its cosmeceutical properties regenerate the skin by stimulating the cell renewal process.

Retinol is the purest form of Vitamin A, which penetrates deep into the dermis stimulating noticeable changes to the skin. Retinol is very effective as it can penetrate deeper into the skin to address skin renewal at a much greater depth than cosmetic products which have a tendency to sit on the surface of the skin. 

Retinol is a type of retinoid found in Vitamin A. Vitamin A is composed of two parts: retinoid, which includes retinol and carotenoids which include beta-carotene. Retinol is a derivative of Vitamin A and more suitable for those with sensitive skin. It is however, paramount for everyone to start with low levels of Vitamin A, so that the skin has time to adjust to its new regime. Clients, however, will be able to step up to greater levels of Vitamin A as the skin becomes used to the product.

Suitable for face and body, Vitamin A or Retinol will effectively address your skincare concerns such as;

Ageing/ fine lines and wrinkles

Pigmentation/age spots/blemishes


Texture/tone/open pores

Scarring/stretch marks

Retinol has recently been featured on television and statistics have proven that retinol really works.  Vitamin A or Retinol as it’s commonly referred to is the product most clinics would recommend when consulting with clients who wish to achieve younger, clearer and brighter skin.  It is important to use a Retinol product as suggested by the manufacturer and under the advice of your skin clinic expert.  It is also advised to use a high Sun Protection Factor in conjunction with any Vitamin A products to ensure the skin is fully protected in order to achieve the very best results.

At pamperbanana Metro Spa, we recommend Environ , a Vitamin A step up programme which really works for those wanting to address signs of ageing and other common skincare concerns such as Acne. The Environ routine for skincare at home is really simple and the products are reasonably priced and easy to use. The products have also been specially formulated to counteract sun damage caused by harmful UVA and UVB rays. That is why its very important to use an SPF every day as sun damage can present itself in many forms such as pigmentation, sun spots, inflammation, broken capillaries, lines and wrinkles. 

If you have skin concerns, look no further, you can buy Environ (Retinol products) over the counter at pamperbanana Metro Spa, Bristol after a consultation to ensure you are compatible with Vitamin A products.

If you would like to know more about Retinol and Vitamin A treatments and products in Bristol, don’t delay your skincare concerns any longer,  please call pamperbanana Metro Spa on 0117 9624965 and speak with one of our experts in skin health.

The Complete Guide to Intimate Waxing for Ladies

Posted in Promotions & News on Sunday, 24 December 2017.

Waxing is one of our most popular treatments at pamperbanana Metro Spa, and we pride ourselves on being one of Bristol’s premier waxing salons. All treatments are carried out to the highest standard by fully-trained, experienced therapists who will make you feel as comfortable as possible throughout your visit.

That said, some people are put off of intimate waxing procedures because they don’t know what to expect, or have worries or concerns about the treatment. We’ve created a guide to hair removal, Bristol that will hopefully put any apprehension you may have to rest. 

What to Expect

At pamperbanana, we use the highly-acclaimed Outback Organics wax and range of professional products with all Hot Flex Wax treatments. This collection uses a fusion of the latest cosmetic ingredients, along with innovative natural extracts from the coastline, forests and bushlands of Australia. They are expertly blended to produce exceptional efficacy and were carefully selected for their unique healing, soothing and nourishing properties.

Many people worry about a reaction from their first wax, and while you may end up with some slight irritation and redness, every person’s skin will react differently. It's vital that you opt for a professional salon with experienced therapists, who will be able to offer aftercare advice and products that will help to soothe and protect the area at home.

Does it Hurt?

One of the biggest concerns for most ladies who are considering an intimate wax is how much discomfort they will feel. Pain thresholds are different for everyone, and our therapists are trained in techniques that offer minimum discomfort for the duration of treatments. As with all new regimes, intimate hair removal can take a little bit of time getting used to, but the more treatments you have, the more normalised the sensations experienced become.

How Long Will it Take?

How long an intimate wax takes depends on various factors, including how much hair you have and which treatment you have. A session can take anywhere between 20 and 45 minutes.

How Often Do I Need a Treatment? 

Again, all women are different, but most opt for regular treatments every four to six weeks. With every treatment, the hair grows back thinner and finer, making it much easier to remove as you establish a waxing routine. If you have a holiday coming up, you can adjust your waxing routine so that it fits in with your dates. Many women will notice a small amount of hair re-growth after a week or so, but it may take a few treatments before you receive optimum results. Hair will need to be at least ½ cm long before it can be successfully removed, so it’s best to refrain from shaving in between appointments. For hygiene and comfort purposes, we recommend that treatments are not done whilst menstruating as you are more sensitive around this time. 

The Different Treatments

At pamperbanana, all waxing treatments are carried out to the highest standard by specially trained therapists you can trust. At pamperbanana Metro Spa, we offer hot flex waxes; a revolutionary new waxing system for sensitive and intimate waxing that is perfect for those who suffer from sensitive skin or are prone to hair breakage during waxing. This alternative is gentler on the skin, helps to prevent in-growing hairs and helps to minimise the painful sting that can be associated with strip waxing. Hot flex waxing will not leave any sticky residue and is perfect for intimate waxes such as Brazilian, Hollywood and Playboy. We also offer warm wax treatments, which are perfect for less sensitive skin.


When you opt for an intimate wax at pamperbanana Metro Spa, extensive and on-going aftercare advice from professionals is included in the price. Slight soreness, small bumps and redness are common, temporary reactions following an intimate wax, particularly if it is your first time. That said, if these symptoms do not subside over the next two days, don’t hesitate to contact us, as your therapist will be able to offer further advice.

Making sure you look after the waxed area over the next few days is vital to prevent any unwanted side effects. This entails keeping the area as clean as possible and avoiding any heat or friction over the next 72 hours. We recommend avoiding extra hot baths and showers, saunas, tanning, sports, tight-fitting clothing, swimming, and any deodorants, body sprays, powders or lotions that could cause irritation. To soothe and protect sensitive areas, we recommend the use of Outback Organics Bush Balm, along with the Outback Organics Skin Wash.

There are also steps you can take to avoid the growth of ingrown hairs following an intimate wax such a Hollywood, Brazilian or Playboy. This happens when a new hair fails to break through the surface of the skin, and curls back into the pore instead, often resulting in a spot. A few days after your appointment, scrub the skin three times a week with an exfoliating mitt. Should any occur, we recommend using Outback Organics Ingrown Hair Serum which will free the ingrown hairs via a dual action that exfoliates the area where the hair is trapped. 

Establishing a regular waxing routine will work wonders for your personal care regime and having the treatment at pamperbanana Metro Spa will ensure you get the optimum care and results your body deserves. If you are unsure of what treatment is right for you, don't hesitate to give us a call on 0117 9624965, or book your treatment using our online booking system.
