If you’re keen to be in top condition for a special occasion or just fancy a bit of pampering, you’ll be spoilt for choice at Vis a Vis in Cotteridge – the salon offers a vast array of treatments to help you stay younger-looking, feel more toned and altogether feel great.

Owned by Joanne Evans for the past 10 years, Vis a Vis provides some of the very latest treatments, all carried out by highly skilled therapists. As well as introducing innovative ideas, the salon chooses only natural products, not tested on animals.

One such example is the Calgel nail treatment, a completely organic overlay that won’t chip or peel and actually strengthens the natural nails.

Vis a Vis is one of a few salons locally to offer Calgel, and that’s not the only exclusive treatment – there’s also Transion, an inch-loss programme in which clients are guaranteed to lose two to six inches in just 15 minutes.

The Transion machine, first designed to reduce swelling in sports injuries, drains excess fluid from the body as well as breaking down fat and toning the muscles, and users can drop a dress size after 10 sessions.

“Each session is equivalent to four hours in the gym, and the results are amazing,” says Joanne.

The Transion non-surgical facelift works in a similar way, lifting, toning and creating a glowing complexion, and has also been used to treat muscular conditions like Bell’s palsy.

Those seeking anti-ageing results will also enjoy the Eyessential treatment, which lifts under-eye bags for up to 10 hours and is perfect for special occasions such as weddings – in fact, a range of bridal beauty packages are available.

Vis a Vis uses Dermalogica face and body mapping to tailor treatments to clients’ individual needs, and diamond crystal microdermabrasion is also offered – it’s called the “lunchtime peel” as no recovery time is necessary.

The salon incorporates the Cotteridge Footcare Clinic (Joanne is a qualified footcare practitioner), meaning that both medical and cosmetic foot treatments are available, including the exclusive Medi Pedi which combines the two.

Clients can also experience St Tropez tanning, waxing, lash and brow tinting, plus holistic therapies such as reflexology and Indian head massage.

As well as the long list of health and beauty treatments, Vis a Vis stocks the Miraclesuit shapewear range and the “Saress” – a sarong and dress in one, only available in two UK shops.

“Customers can see the full range and try the garments on instead of having to order online,” says Joanne.

Vis a Vis offers free consultations on any treatment by appointment, plus three late-night openings, and there’s plenty of customer parking outside.

If you want a taste of exactly what’s on offer at Vis a Vis, make sure you buy a ticket for the Beauty Show on May 1 at Kings Norton Golf Club - call or pop in for details.
