All about Rosacea

April 29th, 2014


A ‘Blushing’ Rene Zellwegger

Rosacea is being talked about in the press quite a bit lately, actually highlighting that April is Rosacea month.  Many A-List celebrities are speaking openly about their sensitive skin that looks sore, red and flushed even when they are not exercising or blushing!

Cynthia Nixon (of Sex in the City fame), Cameron Diaz and Rene Zellweger are all self professed Rosacea sufferers.

Rosacea is treated at MBNS and Qutis Clinics on a daily basis.  It is a two pronged approach:  a course of IPL Photorejuvenation coupled with iS Clinical Pro Heal Serum and SPF 50.

Also keeping the triggers of Rosacea at bay help with keeping the skin condition calmer.  Flare ups can be the result of exposure to sunlight (hot and cold weather), hot drinks and spicy foods to name a few.

Our specialist nurses at MBNS and Qutis treat Rosacea with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment.  This light energy targets the flushed areas on the face thus delivering energy which calms the skin and reduces the redness and soreness. The heat from the light damages the dilated red veins, shrinking them so they can no longer be seen, while at the same time causing minimal scarring or damage to the surrounding tissue.  Several treatments are required at 4-6 week intervals.   iS Clinical’s Pro Heal Serum also reduces the inflammation and the SPF 50 acts as a barrier to the elements.  We also have our prescribing nurses in clinic who may also prescribe a specialised anti-inflammatory for further reduction of Rosacea.

If you would like to make a consultation with one of our specialist nurses regarding Rosacea treatments, or any of the other treatments offered at MBNS including permanent hair removal, dermal fillers or wrinkle treatments, call us on 01844 213007 for MBNS and 01933 704050 for Qutis, and we will get back to you quickly.

CE Mark for eMatrix for acne and stretch marks

April 17th, 2014 has been offering sublative rejuvenation, which is also called eMatrix, since 2011, and many of our patients have this treatment to successfully resurface the skin and help with such areas as acne, stretch marks and lax skin.

Taking on a new treatment is not something we do lightly at MBNS and Qutis Clinics.  We ensure that there are medical papers backing the treatments and the claims made by the manufacturers are accurate.  We test it thoroughly before it becomes part of our offering.

Once again, MBNS and Qutis Clinics have been ahead of the trend by putting our confidence in such an effective treatment as eMatrix

The results spoke for themselves and so when we found out this week that the treatment has achieved a CE mark, which is a lengthy process that tests the efficacy of the treatment, the ability to meet EU safety, and health or environmental requirements, we were not at all surprised.  

Once again, MBNS and Qutis Clinics have been ahead of the trend by putting our confidence in such an effective treatment.   Our nurses knew that this treatment was exceptionally effective for stretch marks, skin irregularities, active acne and acne scarring, and the CE mark proves this outright.  You can read the full article here.

If you would like to arrange a consultation with one of our specialist nurses regarding eMatrix or any other treatment offered at MBNS and Qutis clinics such as wrinkle treatments, permanent hair removal and mole removal, to name a few, kindly call MBNS on 01844 213007 or Qutis on 01993 704050.  If you would prefer to contact us by email, please click HERE FOR MBNS and HERE FOR QUTIS.  A member of our team will get back to you quickly.


Semi-permanent make up – choose a PROFESSIONAL

April 16th, 2014

Semi Perm makeup

Semi-permanent make up procedure at MBNS and Qutis Clinics

An article this week in the Daily Mail highlighted the growing popularity of semi permanent make up  in the UK.  It follows the trend in the USA by many A List Celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Madonna and Gwen Stefani who are fans, and the lure of having a hassle free make up routine draws many people to going down this route.

The results can be amazing if done well by an experienced professional.   It lasts about 1-2 years and a top up is required to keep the colour perfect.

Unfortunately, along with the rise in popularity, comes an influx of practitioners who lack skill and experience.  Training courses run for only a couple of days  and as the industy is unregulated, the technicians can work on anyone willing to pay.  Also and along with discount offers from places such as Groupon, the service is devalued.  This should start the alarm bells ringing in the ears of anyone wanting to go down this route.

Steps you should take before having semi permanent make up:

1.  Firstly and foremost, you must choose an experienced semi-permanent make up artist.  This procedure takes a great deal of skill that is gathered over time.  Ask to see their before and after photos of the brows, lips and eyes they have done previously.

2.  Ask them about their experience, training and testimonials from other clients.

3.  Ask to see their certificates.  Semi-permanent make up artists should also be regulated by the local district council.

4.  Never be lured into big discounted offers – they usually are too good to be true.

5.  Ensure that the location is sterile and professional.   The equipment must be sterile and disposed of correctly also.  It is never a good idea to go to someone’s house for treatment.

It has been designed to be used after IPL photorejuvenation and sublative rejuvenation (eMatrix).  It not only helps prevent the appearance of scarring, but it is one of the first skincare products to contain the ingredient Kava Kava which controls pain due to it’s anaesthetic effects and limits itch caused by nerve root stimulation during the skin’s healing process.

Treatment focus – eMatrix (e2)

April 4th, 2014 I thought I would zero in on a really great treatment we offer here at MBNS and Qutis Clinics called eMatrix or e2.

eMatrix is a heat treatment for the skin which uses radio frequency to bring about skin tightening and refreshes the complexion. Because it uses fractional technology via a matrix of heated pins, it causes very little superficial heat damage to the skin, but it does cause substantial deeper tightening within the dermis. All this means you will need very little ‘recovery-time’ by comparison to traditional heat and laser skin tightening technologies.

People who can benefit from the eMatrix treatments are:

  • People with acne scarring

  • People with active acne, who may require a break-out first aid type of treatment

  • People who want a much fresher face with even pigment

  • People with crepey necks or fine wrinkles

  • People with scars or stretch marks to their arms or abdomens

For Anne

eMatrix for acne treatments

For a fresher complexion 2-3 treatments at 3-4 weekly intervals are advised

For severe scarring 20 treatments may be required at 3-4 weekly intervals

Treatments costs are between £250-£500 dependent on area and time taken.  We also do offer interest free payment plans

If you would like to find out about this or any other of our treatments such as permanent hair removal, dermal fillers and wrinkle treatments that we offer at MBNS and Qutis, kindly call us on 01844 213007 for MBNS and 01993 704050 for Qutis and we will get back to you quickly.
