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.

Victoria Beckham has IPL Permanent Hair Removal

It has been reported in the Daily Mail online today that Victoria Beckham no longer shaves her legs and now has laser hair removal! Advised by her friend Eva Longoria, Mrs B now has smooth legs and wastes no more of her valuable time on daily shaving!

Well, we could have told her that years ago!  At MBNS Clinic in Thame, we have been treating clients for removal of unwanted hair for over 17 years now and the results are permanent and freeing!

Clients require several treatments (spaced 12 weeks apart on the body, or 6 weeks apart on the face, as that is the length of a complete hair cycle).  Once the hair has diminished, you are left with smooth, hassle free legs plus time to get on with other things such as launching your designer clothing label or running four miles a day, such as Victoria!

It is also great to see how clients help us do our job by referring our clinic to their friends, much as Eva advised Victoria about going to have IPL laser hair removal.  The best advertisement for us at MBNS is happy clients sharing their experiences with friends, resulting in them having a little ‘thank you” from us in the form of a £50 voucher to put towards their next treatment (after their friend has had their first treatment).

If you would like to find out more regarding IPL Permanent Hair Removal or any of the other treatments such as dermal fillers or maybe wrinkle reduction offered at MBNS Clinic in Thame by our specialist nurses, why not call us now on 01844 213007 or fill out the form HERE and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

The lowdown on dermal fillers and IPL Photorejuvenation

February 14th, 2014

We are often asked many questions in consultation here at MBNS Clinic in Thame  regarding dermal fillers.  Questions such as:

dermal fillers at MBNS Clinic“I’m wary of fillers, but my face is looking gaunt now I am in my late thirties. What advice do you have for a first-timer?”

Judging by the number of ‘pillow faces’ in the press, you’d be forgiven for thinking dermal fillers never looked natural. But the experienced nurses of MBNS say it is a question of less is more.  Our nurses are artistic and highly experienced and look at your face in an holistic way.  They can work out exactly what is going to suit your face and the correct dermal fillers to use.  It is nice to see a picture of the client from ten years ago, or taken in their early twenties. This allows the nurse to respect the natural contours of their face and work in a more bespoke way.

Whether they have had IPL or dermal fillers, or any other treatment we offer, every client who leaves MBNS is a walking advertisement for us

Our nurses ensure that every client has expectations that are managed realistically. Everyone who leaves MBNS is a walking advertisement for the clinic, that is why MBNS’ aim is to make their clients look their natural best whilst still looking like the same person, so the code by which to live by is definitely, LESS IS MORE.

Another area often discussed is IPL Photorejuvenation….

“I’ve heard mixed reports about IPL (Intense Pulsed Light Therapy)  Is it a good treatment or not?”

img-mediaIPL Photorejuvenation is a fantastic treatment for the removal of age spots (hyperpigmentation) and little veins around the nose with no downtime and effective results.  It is also popular as a ‘next step photo-facial’ to improve skin tone, boost collagen and minimise pores.  It really does keep the skin looking fresh and we hear is a favourite of the many of Hollywood’s actresses!   MBNS has five experienced nurses who perform the treatment regularly and safely.  In order to have safe, effective treatments, the skin must be free of any active tan, that includes fake tan or a dare I say, a sunbed tan!  Usually several treatments are required, 4 to 6 weeks apart for great results.

If you would like to make a consultation with one of our specialist nurses about any of the treatments offered at MBNS, please call us on 01844 213007 or fill out the form HERE and we will get back to you as soon as we can.  We look forward to helping you achieve your skin health goals gradually and naturally.

A great combination: iS Clinical’s White Lightening & IPL Photorejuvenation

January 17th, 2014

Do you suffer from uneven pigmentation on your skin?  Do you have any brown (age) spots that are the result of sun damage?  Would you prefer for your complexion to be more even?

Before and After treatmetns

Before and After 5 treatments with IPL and iS Clinical’s White Lightening

Well, here at MBNS in Thame, we have several products and treatments that can help with evening out skin tone and removing sun/age spots on the skin.   We have a three pronged approach to this: IPL, White Lightening and SPF

1.  INTENSE PULSED LIGHT (IPL) This treatment targets the pigmented areas with a light energy which initially darkens the area and after a few days, the brown spots slough off when washing.  We also treat necks, décolletage and hands!  You will probably need several treatments to get the best results, but IPL therapy also increases collagen production in the skin making it healthier and fuller, in short, it is a fantastic photo facial.

Available in Complex and Serum

Available in a complex and a serum

2.  Working hand in hand with IPL treatments for uneven pigmentation is a great product by the  iS Clinical range called WHITE LIGHTENING™  which is a distinctive formula containing botanical ingredients such as mushroom extract that lightens skin and Norwegian sea kelp that gently exfoliates and prevents new pigment from forming.  White Lightening is available in a complex and a serum.  On consultation, your nurse will go through which would be the correct product for your skin.

iS Clinical's SPF 50 - to be used ALL YEAR ROUND!

3.  iS Clinical’s SPF Factor 50 is your protection against the sun, your moisturiser AND your prevention from these brown spots from returning.  You should be using SPF daily, not just in the summer months!

So, what are the results from combining IPL and White Lightening?

Lighter, brighter skin
Reduction of hyperpigmented areas
Skin feels moisturised and softer
Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles
