When dieting just doesn’t work

Well, it’s that time of year again ­­– when we try to get back into regular eating patterns after splurging over the festive season.

If you’re not yet ready to give up on the finer things in life and get back on the treadmill, there is another way to tighten things up.

Not Size Zero is a petite beauty haven in Waterloo’s up-and-coming industrial area. Here, you’ll always leave feeling better than when you came in – and it’s not just thanks to the treatments.

You see, owner and therapist Georgie is what many would call ‘a real woman’. She understands the body-image issues that come with being anywhere from a size 8 to 16 because, at some stage in her life, she has been every size in between. It’s important to mention this because Georgie truly believes what she does will have lifelong benefits.

Her most popular treatment is Venus Freeze. It helps reduce cellulite and wrinkles, and tightens skin. You could say it’s an affordable, pain-free alternative to cosmetic surgery. Most people get their thighs, stomach and face done (totally understandable, considering this is where most of us harbour that extra weight).

Then there’s Red LED Light Therapy (also known as Omnilux). Perfect for those who don’t like device-to-skin contact, it hovers above your skin while you lay down for half an hour to reduce the depth and amount of wrinkles. Worried you’ll get bored? Georgie has decked out her salon with copies of The Collective magazine and popular must-read novels.

Free parking right outside the salon isn’t the only environmental bonus – it’s also across the road from Zetland’s new East Village, which contains a Coles, butcher and so much more. Book your appointment for the same day as your grocery shop and you’ve got yourself the perfect arrangement!


Sarah Friggieri experienced the Venus Freeze treatment, $99, and Red LED Light Therapy, $49, both of which are a fraction of the price being charged at many other salons.
