By Chioma Obinna THOUSANDS of Nigerian women battling with overweight and obesity now have opportunity to get rid of any form of unwanted body fat through non- surgical cosmetic treatment. This is being made possible with the introduction of Beauty Spa, Maison de beaute, (House of Beauty), a one-stop shop for beauty care, and subsidiary of Pumoh Exclusive online Services Limited that utilises the innovative V9 and the V11 machines. The Spa is equipped to offer sophisticated health, beauty processes and all non-surgical cosmetic treatments such as tightening of post pregnancy sagging, dark circles, eye bags, wrinkles, facial lifts, stretch marks, skin discolouration among others. At the official launch of the facility and the unveiling of Kehinde Bankole, an actress, model and TV host, as the new Brand Ambassador, the Managing Director of the company, Mrs. Umoh Adingwupu, said the machines are the first in Africa. “The V9 is for professional use while the V11 which is smaller can be used in salons and by individuals at home.” Giving an insight Adingwupu noted: “Nigerians eat a lot of oily foods which sometimes affect the colour of their teeth. These Nigerians and others who smoke as well as those whose teeth have been affected due to age can be assisted without involvement of any surgical operation, except cosmetics.” She said Kehinde was chosen as the face of Maison de beaute and Punoh.com, being a young talented actress whose ideology fits that of the company. Adingwupu, said to ensure quality care for clients, the staff that include expatriates are experienced and skilled on all the procedures. As a bonus, the first 20 people to book an appointment for any of the services will get 50 percent discount. On her part, Kehinde Bankole who noted that her unveiling as an ambassador of Pumoh and Maison de beaute gives relevance to her career. “I am happy to identify with something innovative because they are creating brands that are essentially needed in our environment. Their interest into non surgical cosmetic treatments would save the country cost of capital flight for such treatments abroad. “It is the beginning for Nigeria and Africa as a whole.” As Ambassador, she promised to spread information and give opportunities to Nigerians who may need their services. “Already online we had a short competition and 10 people won free services. Nigeria is very stressful, if there is need for opportunities for people to rest or relax under a massage without having to worry about how to pay for them. Bankole noted that the introduction of the services would bring more job opportunities for Nigerians. “Pumoh shopping is about relevance for Africa.” Urging Nigerians to take care of their bodies, she said within the one year, she would take a second look at the beauty industry in the country.
