How long has the SkinnyJab plan been around?

SkinnyJab was founded by Caroline Balazs in February 2017, who exclusively owns the rights to use the SkinnyJab brand. We have just had our 3rd anniversary!

Do you operate out of beauty salons, tanning, nail bars or similar establishments?

Absolutely not.

Our premises are discreet, professional and clinical with state-of-the-art facilities. It is illegal to operate any weight-loss clinic from a venue that is not registered with or undergoing registration by the CQC.​

Most beauty salons or similar establishments would not pass CQC protocols required so to maintain our high standards we do not operate from such places.
