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.

MBNS Clinic in Thame offers many treatments for healthy skin such as wrinkle relaxantsdermal fillers, IPL Photorejuvenation (which helps to remove sun damaged skin!) and IPL Permanent hair reduction to name a few.  Our aim is to help you keep your skin healthy and look your natural best.

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!

Rosacea relief with iS Clinical products at MBNS

October 10th, 2013

Many of our patients come to see us with the skin condition, Rosacea.  Quite simply, it has the appearance of angry red skin which looks and feels sore and inflamed.  Rosacea can be, if untreated, a long-term skin condition that mainly affects the face.   Symptoms begin with episodes of flushing (when the skin turns red).

As Rosacea progresses, other symptoms can develop such as: burning and stinging sensations, permanent redness, spots (papules and pustules) or small blood vessels in the skin becoming visible.  In the most severe cases, skin can thicken and enlarge, usually on and around the nose.

Rosacea skincare kitWe here at MBNS clinic in Thame have 5 specialist nurses who can help  patients with this skin condition by offering  specific iS Clinical products that will keep the Rosacea at bay by reducing the inflammation and redness.

You can see on the left, a photo of a patient who had struggled with Rosacea for a long time.  Her nurse advised her to use the following products from the iS Clinical range:   Cleansing Complex, Pro Heal Serum Hydra Cool Serum and SPF.

As you can see, from only after one week, the skin had begun to settle and redness was controlled.

The iS Clinical line is a medical strength skincare regime, much more potent than any you could buy on the high street.  The surgeons and chemists who developed the products have put their years of expertise into these serums which dramatically change the skin, whether it be to control Rosacea, reduce lines and wrinkles or keep the skin youthful, packed full of antioxidants and well nourished.

If you would like to find out more about the iS Clinical line, or any other treatment and products we offer at MBNS, kindly call us on 01844 213007 to speak live to a member of our team, or fill out the form HERE, and we will get back to you swiftly!
