Juvéderm® Volite Launches

February 9, 2017 1:39 pm Published by

It was an honour to be invited to speak at the internal launch of Allergan’s latest injectable product, Juvéderm® Volite, yesterday.

Volite is Allergan’s first injectable designed to specifically address skin quality and is suitable for treating the face, neck, décolletage and hands.

Clinical data has so far shown strong improvements in skin hydration and elasticity and reductions in fine lines. Results can last up to 9 months with a single treatment.

Volite is composed of hyaluronic acid (“HA”). HA is found in abundance in our skin, cartilage, joints and the fluid in our eyes and is the most water-loving molecule known to man. Around 1/3rd of our total HA is made and broken down daily, and as we age our bodies’ natural ability to regenerate HA slowly decreases.

As part of the initial evaluation phase, my patients have already shown strong improvements in skin quality and I’m looking forward to offering this treatment to all our patients at S-Thetics.

Top Tips For Reducing Skin Blemishes

February 8, 2017 4:18 pm Published by

Did you know our skin is the largest organ in the body, but often the last to be nourished. Apart from our liver, our skin is also the 2nd most mistreated organ, taking a beating from the cumulative and damaging effect of the sun, stress, lifestyle and hormonal change.

Blemishes are skin imperfections like acne, pigmentation and dark marks that occur over time due to inflammatory changes in the skin, and can affect our confidence.

Read my top tips for reducing blemishes and improving your skin health, as featured in the Riverside Journals:

Miss Sherina Balaratnam & Mr Nigel Mercer

“Beyond the Facelift” thank you for attending

November 18, 2016 1:16 pm Published by

Thank you to everyone who attended last night’s talk in Beaconsfield:

“Beyond The Facelift: The Synergy between surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures”

Co-presented by Mr Nigel Mercer and Miss Sherina Balaratnam and attended by over 45 guests, the discussion covered a range of aesthetic treatments and how patients can make safe, informed decisions to optimise their treatment journey.

A number of before and after images were shown, illustrating how subtle, natural looking results can be achieved for a range of non-surgical and surgical cosmetic procedures.

With an interactive audience of our 45 guests, there were a number of questions answered, covering both surgical and non-surgical procedures:

  • When is the right age to start injectable treatments?
  • Post eyelid blepharoplasty, will I retain my original eye shape?
  • Do breast implants need replacing every 10 years?
  • What is the best way to optimise and maintain my skin following a facelift procedure?
  • What is the best skincare advice you give your patients?
  • Do you use fat transfer when performing a facelift?

“Behind every good Plastic Surgeon there should be an expert in Cosmetic Medicine” is the mantra that underpinned the meeting at S-Thetics, in Beaconsfield.

Dr Sherina and I have worked together for years and we have a very good understanding of where our strengths are.

The benefit of such a close working relationship is the ability to offer patients the whole spectrum of what is available to improve their concerns, avoiding the risk of patients visiting a singleton practitioner and being advised to have a procedure that is not necessarily the best for their problem.

We hope the audience took away the strength of collaboration and trust that we were putting forward.”

Mr Nigel Mercer, MB ChB, ChM, FRCS, FRCPCH

“Beyond the Face Life was a great event about the synergy between surgical and non-surgical procedures.

It was fascinating to hear Dr Sherina Balaratnam talking — and showing plenty of photos to demonstrate – what makes good non-surgical treatment. ‘It’s all about getting people back to looking like who they used to be,’ she said. ‘It’s not about making changes. People just want to look like a fresher version of themselves, not like someone different.’ Which is very much what aesthetics is about just now.

It was a particular treat to hear Nigel Mercer talking in such a frank way about everything from the potential complications of many aspects of surgery, to how OCD surgeons always are(!) — and how a cautious, conservative approach to surgery is always, always the best way to go. 

Beauty Journalist Alice Hart-Davis

We would like to thank all our guests for attending and Mr Nigel Mercer for his time and expertise.

Presenting expert clinics at national conferences

S-Thetics at the Aesthetics Conference and Exhibition, London

April 19, 2016 9:07 am Published by

Last week the S-Thetics team attended the Aesthetics Conference and Exhibition (ACE) at the Business Design Centre in Islington.

ACE is the leading education event for medical aesthetic professionals in the UK and is organised by the Aesthetics Journal.

ACE is also an excellent opportunity to meet with colleagues and suppliers and to keep up to date with emerging trends and treatments in the aesthetics industry.

There are also a number of lectures and live demonstrations led by international experts in the industry. I was honoured to present two expert clinics on:

1. “Synergy: How To Optimise Patient Results Using A Multidisciplinary Approach”

As facial ageing occurs in a 3-dimensional manner and includes the skin, subcutaneous fat, muscle and the bony skeleton, so I use a variety of treatments to produce natural, aesthetic and long-lasting results:

– Topical skincare

– Radiofrequency technology

– Botulinum toxin injections

– Full-face revolumising with dermal fillers using a strategic approach

The talk incorporated a number of clinical case studies with before and after photography.

2. “Natural Looking, Non-surgical Face And Eye Lifts Using Radiofrequency”

Focusing on how to achieve natural looking, long lasting results using radiofrequency technology. The talk focused on two particular treatments – the GLOW non-surgical face lift and ENDYBLEPH, the ultimate non-surgical eye lift – both using the advanced Endymed 3DEEP treatment.

On Wednesday 27th April from Midday-2pm we would like to invite you for a live demonstration of our our advanced, non-surgical face lift and body contouring treatment, using advanced, FDA approved Endymed 3DEEP radiofrequency technology:

The MD Codes™ at S-Thetics Clinic

February 29, 2016 12:09 pm Published by

Last week I had the honor of being part of the most sought after training event in our profession, the MD Codes™ Visionary Program, with Allergan.

Delivered by Dr Mauricio de Maio, a world-renowned Brazilian plastic surgeon from Sao Paulo and creator of the MD Codes, the 2-day Visionary Program introduced practitioners to a unique, strategic and methodical way of analysing and treating patients’ faces.

By understanding how our facial anatomy evolves as we age, and utilising the Allergan portfolio of dermal fillers, these advanced injecting skills allow me to sympathetically restore and rejuvenate a patients face in a balanced and harmonious way.

MDCodes-Miss-Sherina-Balaratnam-Dr-Mauricio-de-maio

Miss Sherina Balaratnam with Dr Mauricio de Maio, Brazlian Plastic Surgeon and creator of the MD Codes

I have had the pleasure of learning directly with Dr de Maio for over 5 years now, since being part of the UK Allergan Faculty. As one of only a few hand-picked doctors chosen to represent Allergan as a “Local Country Ambassador” (LCA), I was amongst the first UK doctors to be trained on the MD Codes.

This 1-to-1 training first began with the 8-Point Lift, which Dr de Maio identified as the 8 key areas of the face such as the apex of the cheek, over to the angle of the jawline to give lift, projection and improve facial sagging.

Fast forward 5 years and we are now introduced to 75 facial codes, which take into consideration key subunits within our facial units (such as the temples, forehead, eyes, cheeks, lips, chin and jawline).

Addressing individual subunits with careful attention to detail, low injection volumes and respecting individual facial profiles whilst using the correct facial fillers now puts us in a unique position where we can deliver safe, predictable and elegant results to our patients.

MDCodes-dermal-filler-Buckinghamshire-S-Thetics-Beaconsfield

What are the MD Codes?

They take into account a patient’s full face, addressing the following facial units in a strategic fashion:

  • Forehead
  • Glabella (Frown)
  • Temples
  • Eyebrow
  • Eyes
  • Cheeks
  • Nasolabial Folds
  • Marionette Region
  • Lips
  • Chin
  • Jawline

The MD Codes look at these individual facial units and breaks them down into sub-units, so as to optimise the patient’s results.

They represent a synergy between a deep, surgical knowledge of your facial anatomy and how these areas work in harmony to create the ideal aesthetic outcome.

S-Thetics-Beaconsfield-Buckinghamshire-MD-Codes

 

How will this technique benefit me?

Previously, more outdated techniques of simply chasing lines or injecting directly into target areas, could create a more unnatural appearance as they fail to take into consideration a patients’ anatomy and unique ageing pattern, and instead treat the symptom of ageing rather than the cause.

By taking a more anatomical approach, as well as identifying the patients’ ageing concerns themselves during the consultation process, the MD Codes enable a more analytical, strategic and uniform delivery of advanced injectable skill to help treat the causes of facial ageing.

The desired result is a healthy, refreshed look – like after a good night’s sleep or holiday – not to dramatically change the way you look or make you look like someone else.

What products do you use?

S-Thetics use the Juvéderm® range of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) facial fillers manufactured by Allergan, which is the number-1 product range on the market, with over 25 years of experience and clinical trials demonstrating safety and efficacy.

These products have a smooth consistency, meaning that they can last for longer, result in less swelling and give a more natural look and feel. Depending on the area treated, results can last from 12-18 months.

The Juvéderm® range also contains the mild local anaesthetic lidocaine, which allows for a gentle injection experience. If you have any needle anxieties you will be offered a numbing cream to alleviate any potential discomfort.
