iS Clinical is Pure Chemistry!

December 23rd, 2014

MBNS and Qutis clinics are two of the few suppliers in the UK of the fantastic skincare line of iS Clinical. Originally this range of products was developed by California chemists and surgeons for their post cancer patients.  The surgeons noticed that their patients returning for check ups were thankfully cancer free, but their skin had suffered due to the aggressive radiation and chemotherapy. The skin was left either grey and lack lustre or red and hypersensitive.

These products were developed to bring the skin back to an equilibrium by feeding it with vitamins such as C, E and A.  The serums are so potent that they penetrate underneath the skin thus promoting it to rejuvenate new cells and making the skin health improve dramatically.

The iS Clinical line:  Your skin.  Our Science.  Pure Chemistry!

Our team of experienced aesthetic nurse practitioners believe in evidence based products and treatments, and the iS Clinical line has many medical papers edifying the product range.  We believe that iS Clinical goes hand in hand with our treatments for complete skin health.

If you wish to make a consultation with one of our experienced nurse practitioners kindly call MBNS on +441844 213007 or Qutis on +441993 704050 and we will get back to you swiftly. Alternatively, if you would prefer to contact us by email, CLICK HERE for MBNS and CLICK HERE for Qutis.

Youth Eye Complex tip from Adrian Baker

August 29th, 2014

Charleen de Haven and Adrian

Adrian with iS Clinical’s Scientist Charlene deHaven

Had a late night out or just been kept up all night with the kids?

For me, my life with my 4 year old son doesn’t revolve around partying the night away as it used to, but instead having interrupted sleep and early morning wake ups from him has the same effect – Puffy under eyes and looking tired!

YouthComplex_product.epsMy top tip for fast improvement for the under eyes is a little dab of iS Clinical’s Youth Eye Complex after washing with iS Clinical Cleansing Complex. The effects have been proven to be seen in as little as 4 hours, helping to rapidly reduce puffiness, improve under eye skin quality, and almost blur out the wrinkles in the area.

Then although I may be still tired, I can face the world at least looking refreshed!!

Fake Bake Tips from the experts!

May 30th, 2014

comm-fakebakeSummer is around the corner so you will probably be getting your summer dresses and shorts out of your cupboads and getting ready to show some leg!

So with the sunshine comes the MBNS and Qutis warning that you are all familiar with which is:  to be careful in the sun and use your SPF 50 at all times – and instead of thinking SUNTAN think FAKE BAKE TAN!

We have a full range of Fake Bake products available in clinic and online for you to buy, from Fair to Flawless and all at 20% off for the month of June, so you can get that sun-kissed look safely without damaging your skin.  Shipping from MBNS is always FREE!

For a perfect application, here are three steps to

the perfect FAKE BAKE tan:

Step 1 – Prepare your skin


• We recommend the first step you take is to use a Fake Bake Body Polish (exfoliator) to gently remove flaking, or dead skin cells to help create a longer lasting tan. Remember your self-tan fades as your skin sheds. If you remove loose skin cells, the remaining ones will not wear off as quickly. Fake Bake ‘polishes’ skin, without lacerating or damaging the surface of newly exposed layers. Fake Bake Body Polish is a soap less product which will leave no residue on the skin.

• With a cupped hand, mix Fake Bake Body Polish with a little water (you may want to apply Polisher in the shower).

• Starting with your feet – apply Fake Bake Body Polish in circular motions working up your legs and body, paying particular attention to feet, knees and elbows.

• Remove excess Fake Bake Body Polish with warm damp mitts or alternatively, shower off.


• Immediately prior to your self-tan, apply a small amount of Fake Bake Skin Smoothie Oil to dry heels, feet, knees and elbows which can be blended when the self-tan is applied.

Step 2 – Apply Self-Tan

• Using gloves (provided with Fake Bake Self-Tan), apply product starting at your neck, working down in small circular motions.

• Working down your torso, onto your legs, lightly glazing the product over your ankles.

• It’s best to apply self-tan to the front of your leg while your knee is bent, but when applying to the back of your leg make sure its straight. Apply product at the bottom of your leg moving upwards in small circular motions.

• When you are working down your arms you can spray Fake Bake Skin Smoothie Oil onto your hands and elbows. This will emulsify the self-tan slightly and smooth the product over any dry areas.

• Keep product off your palms.

• Apply Fake Bake Face Self-Tan using a small amount. Blend over all of your face as if applying a tinted moisturiser. Take into the hair line, blend around the ears and join up to the Fake Bake on your neck.

• Allow the self-tan to dry for 15 to 20 minutes before you  redress.

Step 3 – Maintain your Self-Tanfakebake-banner


• To prolong your Fake Bake self-tan, make sure you keep your skin well moisturised on a daily basis. After showering either spritz yourself with Fake Bake Skin Smoothie Oil or apply Fake Bake Tan Enhancing Lotion. These products have been specially formulated to work with Fake Bake self-tans. Other moisturisers may react with tan as the Alkalines in them stripe colour leaving your skin patchy.


• 5 to 7 days after your tan we recommend you gently exfoliate your skin with Fake Bake Body Polish. Repeat this every 2 days thereafter to ensure your tan fades evenly and to prepare your skin for your next Fake Bake self tan.

All about Rosacea

April 29th, 2014


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.

The Danger of sunbeds

February 7th, 2014

A story was reported in the Daily Mail this week about a young woman, Anna Taylor, who had used a sunbed every day for three years and as a result,  developed a cancerous tumour which after being removed,  has left her scarred for life.  To read the full article, click HERE.

Anna Taylor - post operation to remove cancerous tumour on her face.

From the Daily Mail online

Although Anna had discontinued using sunbeds for over ten years, the damage had already been done, and at 33 she had to have an operation to remove the basal cell carcinoma in her cheek.


We here at MBNS Clinic in Thame are experts in keeping your skin healthy and safe from the damaging rays of the sun and UVA and UVB light that sunbeds produce.  Much has been written about the affect of sunbed UV light on the skin and there are more than 200,000 cases of this type of cancer a year in the UK.

We advocate use of a good SPF factor 50 along with iS Clinical’s antioxidant serums such as Pro Heal and Super Serum to protect and feed the skin.  We advise that you NEVER use a sunbed and when in the real sunshine, always use a good SPF a hat and sunglasses.  If you do want a tanned look, then use a fake tan product such as the FAKE BAKE range, you can get the healthy glow….safely!

Recently, the NHS has brought out a very striking poster showing exactly what damage a sunbed can do to the skin…see below – it is shocking!

If you would like to arrange a consultation with one of our nurse specialists regarding the health of your skin, why not ring us on 01844 213007 or fill out the form HERE and we will get back to you quickly.

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
