Acne skincare 3 001

Before and After shot acne patient using iS Clinical products

Acne is a skin disease evidenced by clogged pores (blackheads and whiteheads), pimples, and larger cysts or nodules occurring mainly on the face, neck, chest, back, shoulders and upper arm area.

Many factors including genetics, stress, hormones, environment, heavy and or oily make up and diet all play roles.  I addition, over abrasive cleansing can in fact harm the skin and spread infection.

Eighty-five percent of all teenagers may be affected by acne and many suffer from this condition well into adulthood.

Although not life threatening, acne may cause discomfort, psychological stress and permanent scarring.

Our experienced nurse practitioners here  at MBNS and Qutis Clinics help treat acne by offering a skin resurfacing treatment that we call eMatrix.  This great treatment using radio waves penetrates deep into the dermis to help repair the acne scarring by producing new collagen to the surface making the skin look and feel more smooth.  We also advocate the use of the iS Clinical line of products specifically:

Hydra Cool

All products including Hydra Cool are available at the MBNS online shop – click on image

Cleansing Complex which gently resurfaces and removes dead skin cells and helps soothe the symptoms of acne.

Active Serum which as well as reducing  the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles also diminishes the appearance of acne.

Hydra Cool Serum which hydrates, clams and soothes irritated skin along with reducing the appearance of mild acneic symptoms.  It also offers antioxidant protection.

An article in the Mail Online website recently told a story of a model who had her skin transformed by a make up artist  to look as if she had acne.  She did this as her own sister had suffered for many years, and she wanted to empathise with her.  To read the whole story click HERE.

Only when her clear skin was transformed to an acned complexion by using stage makeup did she begin to feel and understand the pain that her sister had gone thorough for too many years.  She wanted to hide away and felt extremely low and lacking in confidence.  Acne scars can affect the person inside and out.

Here at MBNS and Qutis Clinics have been in the business of skin health for over 17 years.  Our experienced nurse practitioners consult many clients weekly who have reached the end of their tether and do not know what to do to help their skin become healthy again.

Don’t suffer with acne, come and see our experienced nurse practitioners!

So whether it is teenage acne (we treat 18 plus), cystic acne or acne scarring,  our nurses can advise and treat you.   We use a combination of treatments to help to control the acne and get the skin back to a healthy level.  IPL for photorejuvenation, skin resurfacing (also known as eMatrix)medical strength skin care and prescription medicine all play a vital part to tackle acne head on.

So if you would like to find out more about the many other skin treatments and products we have at MBNS and Qutis Clinics, such as wrinkle treatmentsIPL for the removal of sun damaged skin and fat dissolving injections, kindly call MBNS on 01844 213007 or Qutis on 01993 704050 and we will get back to you swiftly.

iS Clinical cancer care

November 6th, 2013

iS Clinical 058

iS Clinical’s range also for Cancer care

At MBNS we love the iS Clinical range of products, but did you know that the serums provide skincare solutions also for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment?  Many of the formulas not only help create vibrant and healthy skin, they also address important issues such as acne, chafing, uneven complexion, burns and scar tissue.

The iS Clinical line of products contain extremely powerful botanical antioxidants to protect against free-radical damage generated by the environment and as a result of certain cancer treatment therapies.  Medical literature gives overwhelming support to using antioxidants during cancer therapy.  They have been shown to improve the outcome of cancer treatments and to reduce the side effects from such treatments.  The iS Clinical products also combine ingredients that strengthen cellular health and integrity (such as Vitamin B5 found in Hydra Cool Serum) and increase micro-circulation (as in Vitamin B3 and Green Tea found in Poly Vitamin Serum and the Fire and Ice Medical Facial masques ).  They utilise proven cancer preventative ingredients (including Vitamin C and Rosemary found in Pro Heal Serum and the Fire and Ice Facial) and they offer the safest, most advanced forms of UV protection.

If you would like to find out more about the iS Clinical range of products, kindly give us a call to arrange a consultation with one of our specialist nurses on 01844 213007 or fill out the form by clicking HERE and we will get back to you swiftly!

Whether your skin has been compromised by radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or medication, your skin can look and feel better, and we at MBNS Clinic in Thame can help!

Acne – More Than Just Skin Deep

September 5th, 2011

 

Stephanie Green RN

In August I attended a great meeting focussing on Acne,Rosacea and Psorasis, all conditions which are common to many of our patients at MBNS, held by the BACN (British Association of Cosmetic Nurses), and sponsored by Galderma. It was an aesthetic dermatology study day  Rosacea is a condition that we treat and control with Intense Pulsed Light, but it was good to hear about other ways to treat alongside the IPL for even better results. Acne is something that all of us will have come across either as young teenagers ourselves, and unfortunately sometimes as we get into our thirties it may strike again, or friends and family around us who suffer from it. We are able to offer a range of treatments from skin peels, advanced skin products such as iS Clinical, and our latest treatment – eMatrix, a revolutionary skin resurfacing technology.

I have also been accepted to be a member of the British Dermatological Nursing Group which will mean, I will be updated on these and many other skin conditions. I expressed an interest particularly in the skin cancer study days. So watch this space as they say, and I will let you know how I get on.
