Some of Brisbane’s leaders in cosmetic medicine have combined their decades of expertise with experienced day spa operators to create a world class, holistic medispa in James Street’s new multi-million-dollar hotel precinct. Kailo Wellness Medispa director Meaghan South, a pioneer in the medispa industry, has teamed up with renowned medical aesthetic practitioner Dr Edwina Morgan to offer tailored modern beauty and health treatments in a relaxed, stylish and nurturing environment at The Calile Hotel, Fortitude Valley.

“We are well known as skin experts in Queensland, but Kailo is unique because it offers a full suite of treatments in-house to help our clients look good and feel great,” Ms South said. “Our range of treatments and therapies include support from paramedical skin and laser specialists, a cosmetic physician, an integrative health doctor, a wellness coach, remedial massage therapists and a holistic healer who bridges ancient and modern worlds with the use of sacred body rituals. We aim to educate and inspire our clients to create wellness as a way of life.”

Brisbane businesswoman Kath Merlo, wife of coffee company owner Dean Merlo, and human resources specialist Kristy Park have developed customer service protocols to ensure Kailo sets a new benchmark for luxury and excellence in Queensland’s spa sector. “Kailo had been designed as a wellness sanctuary for locals, as well as hotel guests,” Mrs Merlo said. “It is a haven for busy women and men to relax and rejuvenate with regular massages, skin treatments and cosmetic procedures.”

Kailo medical director Dr Edwina Morgan heads up the team of paramedical therapists, nurses and doctors. “It’s exciting to welcome new and existing guests to this gorgeous new space, which is designed to ensure all our guests feel rejuvenated and revitalised,” Dr Edwina said. “Skin care and technology are always changing and improving, so it’s important to trust that you are in expert, caring hands. We work closely with our clients to provide personalised treatments and programs which focus on long-lasting, natural rejuvenation and boosting confidence and wellbeing inside and out.” Along with medical aesthetics and advanced skin treatments, Kailo will also offer a range of wellness programs from weight loss and detoxification to intravenous vitamin therapy.

Ms Park, a Brisbane mum with many years’ experience in human resources in the airline industry, said Kailo would provide traditional spa experiences as well as bespoke treatments suited to busy lifestyles. “For instance, Kailo has unique Wellness Pods which allow guests to relax and enjoy a range of express treatments and services,” Ms Park said. “These pods give guests the flexibility to have a treatment during their lunch hour or to receive a revitalizing vitamin infusion in a beautiful, tranquil space before they tackle the rest of their busy day.” Kailo will also host regular free Wellness Workshops to allow guests to learn about new techniques from industry experts across a range of topics including nutrition, hormones and menopause, relationships, make-up trends and much more.
