From Marea – our head nurse….”We here at MBNS and Qutis Clinics have been helping our clients achieve their skin health goals for more than seventeen years and during the many cosmetic injection treatments that I undertake, two of the same questions come up time after time. The top two are always ‘Are cosmetic injections safe’ and ‘if I stop having them will I look worse?’ “
“Careful treatment planning and good before and after photographs are taken by us which enables our clients to see and remember the difference our treatments actually make; and if you want to stop having treatments for any reason your face will just return to the way you looked when treatments were first embarked upon”.
I’m also often asked the following:
Q. I would like to have a frown relaxing treatment. How long does it last and how often can I be treated?
A frown relaxing treatment should only be carried out following a full medical history and consultation as a prescription medicine is used. These treatments should only be performed by a specialist nurse or doctor and typically last 3-6 months. People who like to have a relaxed and smoother forehead and fewer smile lines at the side of their eyes will usually see me three times in a year. The medicine that is used is also used safely for health conditions such as migraine prevention and excessive underarm sweating.
Another question I often get asked says Marea is:
Q. I want fuller lips, but I don’t want to end up with a trout pout!
We err on the side of safety and subtlety here at MBNS and Qutis Clinics. Our patients who want to have a lip enhancement are advised to have a lip hydrator such as Juvederm Volbella. This fantastic treatment adds minimal volume to lips that have lost collagen due to ageing, so the shape of the lips is not changed, they just look softer and more youthful. Gone are the days of the “trout pout” of yester year. Again, this treatment is only performed by one of our team of experienced specialist nurses.

Dermal Filler Treatment at MBNS using Juvederm Ultra
Here at MBNS and Qutis Clinics we find that there is no better way to tell others about what we do than our own patients doing it for us!
A dermal filler called Juvederm Ultra was used
Post procedure, she wanted to tell everyone just how happy she is with the results.
Here is a short video from a patient of ours, who decided to have dermal filler treatment recently at MBNS Clinic in Thame, Oxfordshire.
Post procedure, she wanted to tell everyone just how happy she is with the results. Our nurse Marea used a dermal filler called Juvederm Ultra. It contains an anesthetic and so the procedure is comfortable and quick, and the results are so natural. There’s no magic in this video, no soft lighting, and no make up – just the facts!
If you would like to make an appointment for a consultation with one of our specialist nurses, please call MBNS on 01844 213007 or their sister clinic Qutis Witney on 01993 704050.
We provide treatments for wrinkle reduction, dermal fillers, IPL permanent hair removal and mole and skin tag removal to name a few. Our award winning specialist nurses have been treating for over 17 years in the Oxfordshire area.

We here at MBNS Clinic in Thame have been helping our clients achieve their skin health goals for over 17 years and during the many consultations that have taken place before treatment, two of the same questions come up time after time to our team of nurse prescribers and specialist nurses. The top two are always about Botox and Lip Fillers.
Q. I would like to have a Botox treatment, how long does it last and how often can I be treated?
Here at MBNS we like to give what we call a “European look” with our wrinkle relaxing treatment. To us, that means that although the areas have been treated with the medicine, you will not be left with a frozen look or ‘deer stuck in headlights’ look as is seen many times over in the USA. A ‘full’ Botox treatment (that is three areas treated: the crows feet, between the eyes and the forehead) will last 12 weeks or longer, and your nurse will advise you of the date when you may safely have another treatment.
For safety sake, and because Botox is a prescribed medicine (POM), you cannot be treated any sooner than 12 weeks apart. You should be fully aware also that this and any injectable treatments should be performed only by a medical professional, and in MBNS’s case, an Aesthetic Nurse Specialist, of which we have five in our busy Thame Clinic.
Q. I want fuller lips, but I don’t want to end up with a trout pout!
We err on the side of caution here at MBNS Clinic. Our patients who want to have a lip enhancement are advised to have a lip hydrator such as Juvederm Volbella. This fantastic treatment adds minimal volume to lips that have lost collagen due to ageing, so the shape of the lips is not changed, they just look softer and more youthful. Gone are the days of the “trout pout” of yesteryear. Again, this treatment is performed by one of our team of highly experienced Specialist Nurses.
This month of February, MBNS has a special offer on Juvederm Volbella. Call us on 01844 213007 to find out more and book your consultation. If you would prefer to send us an email, you can do so HERE and we will get back to as soon as we can.
We look forward to helping you look your natural best and achieve your skin health goals at MBNS.

Has January left your skin feeling quite dry from all the extreme weather we have had? Do you know that MBNS has wonderful treatments to help with dry and undernourished skin?
Well, firstly to target the whole face and renew the lost moisture that the wind and rain can incur on our skin, we have the iS Clinical line including Hydra Cool serum which contains Vitamin B5 that renews cells and promotes moisture.
We are offering a FREE sample of Hydra Cool this month with purchase on our online shop, so see HERE for more details.
This serum, combined with SPF 50, really seals and protects the face from the elements and keeps it hydrated and prevents moisture loss.
The lips can also be affected by the cold, and a great way to keep them smooth and moisturised is with Juvederm Volbella.
This dermal filler does not make the lips any fuller, it provides hydration from the inside so keeping them soft and hydrated – a perfect treatment for upcoming Valentine’s Day possibly?

Before trying Bare Minerals foundation I had never worn a foundation before. I had tried, however, several different brands but really disliked the feeling and look it gave my skin. I wanted my make-up to look natural, and not heavy.
I was recommended to use Bare Minerals as it is 100% natural mineral make-up, meaning that there is nothing in the foundation that would clog or congest my skin. In fact it is so pure, you could even sleep in it!! (Not that I do, of course!)
MBNS have loads of special offers on Bare Minerals make-up until Christmas!
I love this make-up so much that I am now using their lip gloss, mascara, eyeshadow, blusher, and bronzer! The foundation contains a natural SFP 15 and no talc. It gives my skin a natural, even glow and even helps reduce redness as one of it’s main ingredients is zinc oxide.
Why not pop into see us and we will do a FREE Make up Consultation for you, then you will see just how great this make up really is!
Call us now on 01844 213007 to book your Bare Minerals make up consultation, or fill out the form HERE and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
At MBNS for the month of November and December the ‘Get started Kit’s’ are only £40 (regularly £49) and they are also stocking an amazing range of make-up kits; everything from lipgloss gift sets to fantastic eye colour pallets.

Have you ever thought of having various aesthetic procedures, but you were not sure where to go, or what happens during a treatment? Well look no further!
“Juvederm Volbella is a long lasting dermal filler which enhances the lip and mouth area naturally and smoothly”
Juvederm Volbella treatments available at MBNS Clinic
Below is a short video of one of our valued patients who allowed us to video her while she had a lip enhancing treatment using a product called Juvederm Volbella. Volbella is a long lasting dermal filler which enhances the lip and mouth area naturally and smoothly, giving you more hydrated and fuller lips.
You will see one of our MBNS nurses, Marea who is a vastly experienced injector (she was actually voted aesthetic nurse of the year this year by the British Journal of Nursing) going through the procedure and you will find out from the patient herself what it is like to have this treatment.
We here at MBNS have 5 nurse specialists who perform these treatments every day. We also offer treatments for the reduction of wrinkles, skin rejuvenation, skin resurfacing and permanent hair removal to name a few.
If you would like to find out more about our treatments, please call us on 01844 213007 or fill out the contact form HERE and we will get back to you swiftly.
