Paula discusses ‘spot fat reduction’ for problem areas of fat.

We are always at the forefront of medical aesthetics, so much so that we are the first clinic group in Oxfordshire to offer fat aqualyxdissolving injections.

Aqualyx spot fat reduction is now available at MBNS and Qutis Clinics.

 We use a plant polymer solution to dissolve localised fat deposits safely, it is called Aqualyx. It is used for double chins, back fat, above bra fat, between the knees and thighs and more.

It has been licensed and used in Europe since 2006. It is not intended for weight loss and can only be administered if our clients are fit and well and only after a thorough consultation.  It is proving very popular in both men and women.

Anti ageing tip: Use a good sunscreen such as iS Clinical SPF 50

SPF 50

iS Clinical SPF 50

You can have the best genes in the world but if you smoke,drink, sunbathe and have a poor diet, you are going to age faster than someone who is not so blessed in the gene department.

My best anti-ageing tip is use a daily sunscreen (SPF 50)

but you don’t need to slather on a lot of other creams. Use a small amount of a serum such as iS Clinical science backed skin products, they will last you for ages making your whole skin care cost effective.

And it’s never too late to start to take care of your skin. Our clients come from miles around and I advise them on getting rid of age spots, red veins and lines and wrinkles. It’s a journey into improved self esteem and skin health and we make it as pleasant as possible. All our team are dedicated experts, and our clinics are all warm and welcoming.

Use iS Clinical serums for skin that reflects your inner-health

Aesthetic Nurse Paula Shurrock

Everyone needs a ‘proper’ skin-care routine plus sensible exercise which helps with psychological well being.  I love the iS Clinical Cleansing Complex  that won’t disturb the acid mantle of your skin (the skin’s natural protecting veil).

Super Serum

iS Clinical Serums

iS Clinical serums coupled with regular exercise keeps the skin healthy and youthful

After a good cleanse I smooth on Super Serum that promotes skin cell turnover and also helps protect against broken vessels,  finished off by a good antioxidant SPF 50 (iS Clinical Eclipse SPF 50), then I walk my dog Barney, confident that my skin is fed, nourished and protected. People who exercise tend to have better looking skin as the circulation throughout their whole body is better. Walking stimulates facial circulation and overall psychological  well being.   And if people do have facial red veins or a florid complexion, we can treat that using Intense Pulsed Light Therapy.

Don’t forget your hands with Radiesse

Anne recommends Radiesse for hands

Most people think that the focus of anti ageing is the face, but one of the most telltale signs of ageing is our hands. The skin on the back of our hands is extremely thin so the loss of fat on any level shows quickly,exposing our tendons, bones and veins which can make you seem older than you really are.

Radiesse eliminates the veins in the hands and makes them look younger once again!

One of my own favourite treatments was having gentle Radiesse filler into the backs of my hands.  Radiesse works by increasing your body’s own collagen to produce new collagen.  The results are amazing and long lasting, the veins and tendons disappear into the hand once again and they look plumper and younger.

Help for stretch marks

KIT MEADS

Being the daughter of an aesthetic nurse specialist, skincare and health maintenance is in my blood!  As a wife and young mum of two energetic sons, my skincare regime has to be cost effective and simple.

A combination of Super Serum and eMatrix is great for stretch marks

Kit B & A

Before and after stretch mark treatment with eMatrix and Super Serum

I use iS Clinical Super Serum (see video below) on my face and use it on my tummy.  I have had a noticeable improvement in a few stretch marks from my pregnancies with both Super Serum and a treatment called radio frequency skin tightening (eMatrix)

What eMatrix does for stretch marks:

eMatrix treatment is a non-laser and non-light based treatment that uses radio frequency technology to place the heat energy effectively into the skin where it can produce significant dermal impact and collagen stimulation with minimal epidermal disruption. In simple terms, the heat produced under the surface of the skin causes it to repair itself and produce more collagen which rises to the surface so smoothing out scars and stretch marks.

Skin facts: Watch out for stress sugar and sun!

July 11th, 2014

How health advice has changed over the years!  We used to be told to have a high carbohydrate diet as carbs fill you up more; now it is protein in higher quantity that is shown to have a better effect on the body’s health.  Certain carbs should be limited as they can produce high levels of insulin in the body causing it to be converted into dangerous fat especially in the tummy areas of women in their prime and this can also lead to diabetes.

We also used to be told to follow a low-fat diet and that fat was bad and now the thought process due to strong evidence around that has changed to0 – there are good fats and bad fats now!

The thought process regarding skin health is evidence based and illuminating to say the least! Our advise is to look out for the following dangers that can age the skin:  stress, sun and sugar!

Helping clients have healthier skin: Adrian Baker RN INP

We asked Adrian Baker,  one of our nurse prescribers at MBNS and Qutis Clinics, his thoughts on the skin’s 3 S’s:  Stress, Sugar and Sun;

Stress!

“Whenever possible, stress should try to be tackled with certain types of exercise such a walking or yoga which will in time induce calm” says Adrian, getting involved in a good fitness class such as Jazzercise can keep your mind off the stressful things in your life and focussed on the health of your body!

Sugar!

Active Serum all in one skin treatment for lines, wrinkles and pigmentation

Adrian says that he is seeing more congestion acne-prone skin, often as a result of using rich high street oil-based anti ageing creams that clog pores combined with a high sugar diet.  Adrian goes on to say that he likes serums and creams that have high strength retinoids, which are only available on prescription, or iS Clinical’s Active Serum which reduces the appearances of fine lines and wrinkles and has pharmaceutical grade active ingredients.

SPF 50Sun!

We all advocate the use of a good sunscreen.  His and all our favourite sunscreen is iS Clinical Eclipse with an SPF of 50 which acts as a fantastic moisturiser as well as your protection against the harmful ageing rays of the sun.

Remember the good fats for your skin!

So on the thought process of eating “good fat” to stay healthy, we all advocate to eat more avocados, oily fish olive oil and almonds.

The best advice is :  Don’t take your skin health for granted.  Look after yourself in the sun, take care of what you eat and take regular exercise – it is the perfect combination for health!

Juvederm Ultra for a natural, refreshed look for the male face too!

July 8th, 2014

Our patients at MBNS and Qutis clinics visit us regularly as we provide a natural, fresher look for their skin.  None more so than Geoff –  who lost a lot of weight after spending months in hospital last year and was looking older than his years.

Juvederm Ultra was used to rejuvenate Geoff’s face

Geoff came to see one of our aesthetic nurse specialist, Stephanie Green, with a desire to look refreshed.  He was well again, but his face did not reflect how he was really feeling inside. Geoff, on consultation with Stephanie decided  to go ahead and have some dermal filler treatment, in this case, Juvederm Ultra was used.  He didn’t want to look any younger but wanted to feel and look healthier.

As you can see from the photos below showing his before and after treatment, his face looks fuller and more healthy, and he now looks his natural best.  His face now reflects his new healthy self.

The wonders of IPL Photorejuvenation treatment for sun damage

July 4th, 2014

At MBNS and Qutis clinics we see many patients with sun damage who are looking for a healthier skin, none more so than 56 year old Susie who came to see Aesthetic Nurse Paula Shurrock and was concerned about her excess pigmentation.

Susie disclosed that she had enjoyed a lifetime of foreign holidays,  outdoor activities, and hiking long distances.  She was horrified to realise during her consultation that the damage to her skin was as a result of her outdoor pursuits and her not using any sun protection on her skin.

Her new regime of wearing SPF 50 daily and wearing a hat is now second nature to her.  One treatment of Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL) has reduced the damage (sun spots and freckles) by over 50%.

Photos below show before and after one treatment of IPL for sun damage

Susie is delighted with her fresh healthier skin, and will continue to see Paula at 4 week intervals until the pigmentatiion in her skin is restored to health.
