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!

Male Botox or ‘Brotox’ up 25% in 2013

December 10th, 2013

Male clientele for aesthetic treatments is up 25% on previous year.

An article in the Daily Mail last week delivered the message that male Botox , or as it is becoming known as ‘Brotox’ is on the substantial rise!  You can read the  full article HERE.

It states that clinics are reporting an increase in  treatments for males by 25% over the previous year, and MBNS clinic in Thame, Oxfordshire would agree to this statistic.

MBNS has been treating both female and male patients for over 17 years.  The male perspective is really no different from the female one:  both want to look well rested and refreshed, without looking ‘done’.   The experienced nurse professionals at MBNS give treatments that provide a natural look, the aim being to make  you look your natural best at all times.

It is nice to see the increase of partners coming for Botox treatment together, where maybe in the old days, there was  a little more secrecy.

Whether it is Botox for frown lines, hyperhidrosis (underarm sweating) or Bruxism (teeth grinding), this multi faceted medicine is so effective.  Coupled with dermal fillers and treatments for the removal of sun damage and age spots, all treatments result in a fresh faced, and above all, natural look.  It is nice to see the increase of partners coming for treatment together, where maybe in the old days, there was a little more secrecy.

The regular male clientele are often happy to talk about their experiences also,  and MBNS have dedicated an area to their website all about the male perspective, see HERE.

If you would like to make a consultation with one of the nurse professionals, kindly call 01844 213007 or alternatively, fill out the contact us form HERE and we will get back to you swiftly.  We look forward to welcoming you and your partner to MBNS.
