Dermal Fillers – Patient Success Story

July 21, 2016 11:08 am Published by

Hear from our patient, Carole Anne, 71, who recently had full face revolumising treatment with the latest Juvéderm® Vycross™ dermal fillers at S-Thetics Clinic in Beaconsfield:

“As I grew older I hated gravity taking control of the contours of my face which made me look so tired all the time – then I was introduced to Dr Sherina Balaratnam and her extraordinary knowledge and skills.

Our initial consultation was extremely detailed; she understood that I didn’t want to look unnaturally plumped up, just to look good for my (increasing) age. Which is exactly what I now have.

Dermal fillers are a non-permanent cosmetic injectable treatment which can effectively treat some of the deeper underlying signs of ageing, such as:

  • loss of facial volume
  • lines and wrinkles
  • jawline sagging
  • loss of lip definition and volume

They can help to smooth the key signs of ageing by restoring lost hydration and improving the skin’s volume, structure and texture.

The key ingredient of the facial fillers we use at S-Thetics is Hyaluronic Acid (HA) – a type of sugar, which occurs naturally in the body and is responsible for maintaining skin volume and elasticity.

HA is broken down within one to two days, and is constantly being replenished; however as we age, this replacement mechanism diminishes and the moisturising and plumping effects of HA decrease.

Introducing Oxygenetix, The World’s Most Breathable Foundation

June 20, 2016 11:09 am Published by

Introducing the world’s most breathable foundation to S-Thetics Medical Aesthetic clinic, Oxygenetix.

Oxygenetix foundation was originally developed to heal and conceal skin after cosmetic surgery and cosmetic procedures such as micro-needling, lasers and peels.

best-make-up-buckinghamshire-beaconsfield-Oxygenetix

Oxygenetix not only helps promote the healing process of a number of skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, acne scars, dry and sensitive skin, but is the ideal foundation for everyday wear.

“My patients have been increasingly asking me to recommend make up which can be used post-procedures such as micro-needling but also for a range they can use everyday and to help manage sensitive skin and break-out’s.
Oyxgenetix is ideal for this purpose and cares for your skin whilst allowing it to breathe.”

Miss Sherina Balaratnam, MBBS, MRCS, MSc (UCL)

Medical Director, S-Thetics

About Oxygenetix

First launched in Beverley Hills in 2008, this is a high-end foundation, with a combined 160 years of cosmetic and medical expertise behind it.

Oxygenetix is the official make-up line for 17 Hollywood film studios and is a must-have product for leading make-up artists.

It has real skin care benefits, provides flawless coverage and delivers an unsurpassed, oxygen-enriched formula that allows skin to breathe more than any other foundation brand available.

best-skincare-beaconsfield

The prime ingredient in the product is the pro-healing, patent-pending Ceravitae™ a super charged oxygen complex that promotes collagen cell production and connective tissue growth in aging and wounded skin.

It is also natural Aloe Barbadensis gel based (not water-based like most foundations, that often attract bacteria to the skin) and provides anti-bacterial qualities, protects compromised skin, while astringently removing dead surface cells.

Furthermore, it is transfer and water resistant, which allows it to stay on for hours even in humid environments. Its oxygen enriched and natural components make it virtually a second skin.

best-skincare-S-Thetics-Beaconsfield

Q. I have sensitive skin, can I use Oxygenetix?

A. Oxygenetix is safe for every skin type; including post-procedural and sensitive skin. It soothes and promotes healing of skin and doesn’t irritate or cause break-outs.

Q. What is Ceravitae™ and what does it do?

A. Ceravitae™ does the heavy lifting when it comes to proliferating young, fresh and plump skin cells, by delivering high amounts of oxygen. This aerobic effect helps to make those vital productive cells work harder.

Q. Can Oxygenetix be used as an everyday make-up?

A. Yes, Oxygenetix was formulated for post-operative healing and full, undetectable coverage. Continued use promotes youthful, healthy skin through oxygen driven cellular turnover in a breathable, second skin formula.

Q. I have acne can I use Oxygenetix?

A. Yes, our Oxygenetix range features a specific Acne Control foundation with time-released 2% salicylic acid to uniquely deliver proprietary acne control ingredients whilst also allowing your skin to breathe.

Q. Is Oxygenetix good for your skin?

A. Oxygenetix is great skin care that just happens to be a make-up product.

Hear from our patient, Melanie, 42, who has had a combined treatment approach using skincare, skin resurfacing treatments and facial injectables to improve her skin tone, texture and address loss of facial volume.

“My skin had a lot of sun damage throughout the years and everyday I looked into the mirror I got to the point where I wasn’t happy with what I was seeing.

My skin was dull, had lost all its volume and it wasn’t making me very happy.

Now everyday when I look in the mirror I’m really pleased with what’s looking back at me.

I feel fresher, I look better, people say to me your skin looks great, you look really well and I think it was one of the best things that I’ve done.”

Natural Beauty – A Guide to Facial Fillers

April 8, 2016 11:48 am Published by

Most patients having a cosmetic treatment are seeking a more youthful appearance, but still want to look like themselves. So a good rule of thumb is to undergo temporary procedures that wear off, before committing to something permanent.

A 2013 study in a leading Facial Plastic Surgery journal has shown that, while cosmetic surgery can make people look younger, it doesn’t necessarily make them more beautiful.

Erasing lines and folds, tightening sagging skin, or restoring young full lips may rejuvenate some faces, but as we are all aware, can also look odd and a bit out of balance on others.

S-Thetics Beaconsfield dermal filler testimonial full face both

Before and after photos after dermal filler treatment with improvement in skin volume, structure and texture

Patients new to fillers often bring up fear of this kind of “unnatural” result, causing some to avoid treatments altogether.

The restoration of a natural volume distribution is a major goal in facial rejuvenation. Having a detailed understanding of facial anatomy to recognize “what’s been lost where” on a case-by-case basis so as to individualise treatment plans, helps to offer the sort of subtle and natural-looking results desired by my patients who often tell me that they don’t want to look done, but just want to perhaps look less tired.

Read a Fire & Ice patient testimonial

Fire & Ice Facial Treatment – Patient Success Story

February 9, 2016 11:04 am Published by

As a busy mother of young children I need a treatment that gives great results and the Fire & Ice gives me effective and lasting results each time. This facial is an intensive medical treatment so don’t expect candles, chanting music and dimly lit rooms. 

For me this was perfect, I knew straight away that the results were going to be good as the “fire’ part of the masque (an intense resurfacing treatment) really does what the name implies.

The following step in the facial includes a rejuvenating mask – the “Ice” part – as it is a cool, soothing and intensively hydrating masque and most definitely welcomed after the heat from the resurfacing masque.

Expect fine lines to be minimised, glowing skin and a return of youthful plumpness but with zero downtime. Incorporated into my facial was a neck, shoulder and hand massage.

A course of treatments are the optimum to achieve maximum results however a one off treatment for a special night out certainly does the trick!”
