Jacqui Tomlinson-Smith - Managing Director

Jacqui Tomlinson-SmithJacqui Smith is a Physical Therapist, consistent community advocate, lactation consultant, Lamaze childbirth educator, Doula, mother, grandmother and well-known friend to many. Ms. Jacqui serves as the Director of Beyond Basics Medical Spa, and is responsible for the tremendous success of the business. A true entrepreneur, Jacqui makes every effort to upgrade the aesthetic services on island so that no one will have to travel abroad to receive such treatments.

Being a Baby Boomer herself and having contacts with so many people and families in Cayman, Jacqui felt that, while no one can stop the aging process, there should be a way to help people age later and age gracefully; to teach them how to take care of their biggest organ, their skin. She researched the various devices that were on the market and determined the elos technology by Syneron was unsurpassed in quality.

“Syneron was best for all Fitzpatrick types, it was FDA-approved, it was safe and there was minimal or no down time and afforded great results.”

Jacqui is trained and certified in the use of all the Syneron laser equipment and in all the pharmaceuticals that Beyond Basics carries. Aesthetic Enhancement International Institute by Barbara Jones also certifies her in performing chemical peels and microdermabrasion.

Working my way up to salon manager in 3 of their most prestigious salons, Chiswick, Notting Hill and Kensington.

Always eager to expand my knowledge to learn techniques and skills to make Waxing as pain free and effective as possible, becoming a Waxpert (Waxing expert) and IPL & Laser specialist in hair removal.

After leaving The Ministry Of Waxing I moved to the beautiful Cayman Islands in July 2013 working at posh spa for a brief period, but as I missed doing laser treatments, I started working at Beyond Basics Medical Day Spa in April 2014. At Beyond Basics I advanced my laser education and became a certified Laser Safety Officer and Laser Technician through the National Laser Institute in hair removal and aesthetics which allowed me to include skin tightening, sublative, skin rejuvenation, vaginal tightening and rejuvenation in my service offerings. I also perform chemical peels and hydrafacials.
