Treatments performed safely by the experienced nurses of MBNS and Qutis
A large study by an American university has found that minor cosmetic procedures lack risk of serious adverse events.
The study, by Northwestern University and published in the JAMA Dermatology Journal, is believed to be the first major study to analyse the number of adverse events among tens of thousands of cosmetic procedures performed across the US.
‘The treatments at MBNS and Qutis Clinics are performed by experienced nurses who have been treating patients safely for the past seventeen years’
It found that dermal fillers, wrinkle treatments, laser (IPL) , and energy device procedures (eMatrix) were exceedingly safe. The research came from the results of 20,339 procedures conducted by 23 board-certified dermatologists at eight centres around the country over three months, and staggered across seasons. Side effects such as bruising, redness, swelling and bumpiness or skin darkening were found to clear up on their own, and occurred in fewer than 1% of patients.
Our experienced, award winning aesthetic nurses at MBNS and Qutis Clinics have been treating patients safely for the past seventeen years. Having earned their stripes by working for many years in all areas of the hospital such as intensive care (ICU) and coronary care, they are superbly equipped to be able to treat and perform safely the various treatments with a clinical and expert eye coupled with the nursing background to provide a soothing bedside manner.
Their post treatment follow up appointments have the necessary time devoted to them so that the client (or patient, as we say) are looked after every step of the way and never rushed, pre and post treatment.

Eurovision Winner Conchita – a candidate for IPL Hair Removal perhaps? PHOTO: mailonline
An article yesterday in the Daily Mail stated that if a person wants to eliminate facial hair, they should stop eating white bread!! You can read the full article HERE.
The article states “A diet low in white carbohydrates, such as white bread, can also help to reduce hair growth. This is because high glycaemic foods raise blood sugar, which in turn increases insulin levels. Raised insulin is responsible for the production of too many androgens”.
Our team of experienced nurses and aestheticians here at MBNS and Qutis Clinics remove unwanted hair PERMANENTLY with Intense Pulsed Light treatment (IPL)
It next goes to on to state in detail the various methods by which hair can be removed, but none of these treatments such as waxing and plucking are permanent!

Treatment with JUVÉDERM® Dermal Filler
A synopsis from an article written by Allergan the makers of JUVÉDERM®:
A recent campaign developed by Allergan, the company who provide Botox® and dermal filler JUVÉDERM® has encouraged people to talk more positively about ageing.
The campaign, called #THISISME backed by leading aesthetic practitioners, was informed by extensive qualitative and quantitative research on 2,000 women from across the UK, which showed that women today feel much more positively about getting older than the anti-ageing category often suggests. However, they are still looking for effective beauty treatments that help them age the way they want and fear being judged by society as vain or superficial for wanting to look their best.
The campaign features six everyday women ranging in age from 35 to 69. The images will be in all forms of media, depict the women’s wrinkles and have not been air-brushed. This is to show other women that you don’t need photoshop to look great with facial fillers!
Simply put, women want to look their natural best and by means of showing their vibrant and audacious self regardless of their age! The bold campaign, #THISISME features women of all ages and backgrounds encouraging other women to continue to embrace the positives about getting older, but empowering them to make their own treatment choices and not be ashamed, so they can age as they want to.
MBNS and Qutis Clinics have treated many patients country wide with JUVÉDERM® and have facilitated them in looking their natural best.
Key findings from the research behind the campaign include:
1..Ageing well is more important than looking younger (only 20% of women say they want to look 5 years younger¹ but 41% say they want to look fresher and radiant)
2..Fillers, and those who have them, are stigmatised by society, leading to an inner conflict among those considering treatment (24% of women don’t have treatment until a year or more after it was considered)
3.. Women don’t talk about the treatment they’ve had, meaning other women considering treatment are denied the opportunity to discuss it with other women (even once treated, social stigma becomes the 3rd biggest concern about having fillers)
This campaign has also revealed that women are much more self-accepting and take a moderate view to beauty and improving their appearance rather than coveting the images we are used to seeing in magazines and adverts. Allergan also encourage all beauty brands to be more positive and empowering in the way they engage women on this topic.”
We here at MBNS and Qutis Clinics have been in the aesthetic business for over 15 years and in this time have treated many patients country wide and have facilitated them in looking their natural best. Within the private consultation, your nurse will use her expert eye to guide you towards looking naturally fresher and well rested.
