No more mean mummy – it’s a frown relaxing treatment for me!

July 22nd, 2015

A note from Beverley…

I’ve always had a heavy frown, so much so, my little boy used to think I was upset with him, even when I wasn’t! – (well, sometimes I really was!)   He used to say “Mummy, you look so mean!”  Well that was enough for me!  I really wanted to find out if my frown lines could be softened, so that I could return to being ‘Mummy’ and not an Ogre!

IMG_5208I decided to make some enquiries and a Google search brought me to the MBNS and Qutis Clinics.  They have an experienced nurse team, two of which were even aesthetic nurse of the year  in 2013 and 2014.

The website was informative with videos showing real treatments, that included frown relaxing,  so I decided to give them a call.

The receptionist who answered the phone was friendly and knowledgable. She informed me that they had been in business over 18 years the main stay of their business was skin health and making people look their natural best.  I booked in there and then!

On my personalised consultation my nurse went through in detail my medical history and the various treatments they offered and suggested a frown relaxing treatment for me- so I decided to go ahead.   The treatment took about 14 days to take effect and on follow up I saw my ‘before’ and newly taken ‘after’ photos!

Wow!  I’m so happy with the results.  My ‘mean frown’ lines have gone and my 10 year old no longer thinks of me as an ogre!  Thank you so much!

Time to fake (bake) it!

July 21st, 2015

FAKE BAKE ON SHELFIt’s July, and the sun is out and everyone is walking around in dresses and shorts exposing arms legs and sometimes the odd midriff!

So you want the bronzed look but you don’t want to expose your skin to the damaging rays – so get yourself down to MBNS and Qutis Clinics for some FAKE BAKE!  There are so many different self tanning products to choose from that give a gradual tan, an instant tan or a developing tan.

My personal favourite is the 60 minute tan.  Apply using the mitt provided and in only an hour your skin is glowing.   As the product is brown in colour  you can see where you have applied, so there is no streaking or errors!  Always remember to wash your hands after application!

The great thing about having an instant tan is that once it has developed you can apply your SPF 50 and go out in the sunshine both bronzed and protected!

Eclipse SPF 50 Low res packshot 150dpiThe Eclipse SPF 50 is your perfect accompaniment to your Fake Bake tan.  It is available in three shades:  Original (white) Beige and Brown.

Use your SPF to protect against the sun and skin cancer

July 16th, 2015

We all want to enjoy the sunshine that seems to be with us quite a bit lately! And although it is so nice to enjoy the hot weather, we have to protect our skin and be aware and vigilant with moles and changes to the skin’s surface.

Malignant melanoma incidence rates in the UK have more than quadrupled over the last thirty years, and the UK figures show that 35 new cases are reported every day!  Malignant melanoma is almost twice as common in young women (up to age 34) as in young men.  (Source:  Cancer Research UK)

Like most cancers, skin cancer is more common with increasing age, but malignant melanoma is disproportionately high in younger people.  More than one third of all cases of malignant melanoma occur in people under 55.

All these statistics point to the fact that we have to protect our skin from the sun.  We should cover up, wear a wide brimmed hat, sunglasses and use a good SPF of 30 or 50.

Our experienced nurses remove benign moles, xanathelasma, melasma, cherry angiomas, seborrhoeic keratosis, milia and skin tags regularly. We invite you to go to your GP to ensure that that mole can be cosmetically removed beforehand.

Our nurse practitioners at MBNS and Qutis Clinic want to help you achieve your skin health goals and advise you on how best to protect your skin.  We recommend that you use one of the iS Clinical range in order to get maximum protection and guard against skin cancer.

SHEALD Recovery Balm

July 10th, 2015

SHEALDiS Clinical, the US brand behind SHEALD Recovery Balm hit the beauty headlines when Hollywood celebrities got excited about their Fire and Ice facial.  But there’s a lot more to IS Clinical than red carpet glamour.  Our experienced nurse practitioners here at MBNS and Qutis Clinics advocate SHEALD for use after cosmetic surgery and has also been recommended to help heal skin after cancer treatment.

shealdIt’s one of the few products you can apply to open wounds (in a thick layer, no rubbing in.).  Healthy skin produces lipids (oils) which form part of the barrier that protects the body from infection and irritation.  SHEALD uses lipids which take on the skin’s role until it heals.  It keeps inflammation down, has mild anaesthetic properties and gives skin the moisture it needs to help lighten the look of nasty scars.  The whole iS Clinical range of products are available from the MBNS Online Shop.
