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.

juvederm-volite-launches-S-Thetics-skin-clinic-Beaconsfield-miss-sherina-balaratnam

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.

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.

dermal-filler-before-and-after-S-Thetics-Beaconsfield

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.

Facial Fillers – patient success story

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

Hear from our patient, Liz, 52, who recently had full face revolumising treatment with the latest Juvéderm® Vycross™ dermal fillers at S-Thetics Clinic:

“I am fifty two and have been for the most part quite happy with the way I looked, give or take a few pounds or a few bad haircuts, however things took quite a turn as I hit my fifties and suddenly I began to feel that I looked really unattractive and whilst before a change of make-up or a new dress would make all the difference, of late it just made me feel worse.

Make-up looked heavy and my predisposition for vintage clothes made me look like I’d lived it first time round.

The contours of my face had really softened, especially around the jaw line, giving me a jowly look, also my under chin had become ‘soft’ and loose. This was especially noticeable in profile or when I put my chin down.

Dr Sherina’s approach is very inclusive, she spent a long time discussing with me how I felt about my appearance and what affect this was having on me, the conversation was friendly and all my questions were very clearly and fully answered.

In all honesty I only felt a mild discomfort and although obviously there are needles involved so some people might be wary, for me it was only a question of relaxing into the idea and after that I was absolutely fine, I’ve had acupuncture before and it was less uncomfortable than that.

The results are outstanding, just looking at the before and after photos I couldn’t believe how much more serene and fresh I looked.

dermal-filler-buckinghamshire

My face immediately seemed lifted, which took away the heaviness and the dark shadows of the nose to mouth lines and amazingly enough and best of all, my nose appears less sunken and smaller and my eyes look wider and less heavy under the brow bone.

I feel definitely more attractive and this has had an effect on so many levels, when I get dressed instead of feeling frumpy in my usual clothes and generally negative about my whole ‘look’, now I feel that my outfits make me happy, and that I actually look how I think of myself as looking.

I have regained some sort of sparkle that I definitely lost, and that is the best feeling in the world!

I would without a shadow of a doubt have this treatment again and will have maintenance treatments when I feel I need them.”

Liz Morris, 52

slide-3

“Fillers aren’t here to FILL. They are here to be used to correct areas where volume loss has caused signs that we do not like, as they make our faces look different from how they used to be.

My patients don’t come to me asking to be filled. They come asking to look less tired, less angry, more awake, like they’ve just been on holiday and like they’ve just had a good night’s sleep.

Liz came to me as she had just turned 52 and felt that her face didn’t match how she felt inside. She is a happy, free spirited woman, however felt that she was looking tired and that her face was starting to drop, making her look heavy.

After a detailed consultation and treatment plan we agreed on carrying out a dermal filler strategy using the latest MD Codes in a full face approach.

It was evident from her assessment that she needed volume correction in all of her facial compartments which were slowly and naturally starting to lose volume. Something that happens to us all as we age.

The last photo was taken 6 weeks later, once the fillers have had a chance to integrate with our skin and soft tissues. The results look and feel like her. And it IS her.

But, as she says, just better, fresher, and more beautiful.”

Skin Treatments – Patient Success Story

“I just wanted to say how delighted I was with the amazing results of the Fire and Ice Treatment. My skin looks so much fresher and cleaner and I have had numerous comments on how good my skin looks.

Having not really thought about daily SPF for my face, I have been delighted with the iS Clinical Eclipse SPF 50+ and it has been very pleasing to see how my new skin care regime has started to reverse some of the deep skin damage shown with the VISIA camera.

I love coming to the haven that is S-Thetics, to relax into a treatment under the professional and friendly care of the team. Thank you all, looking forward to being back soon.”

Miss Balaratnam, Medical Director of S-Thetics Clinic, is featured in the Riverside Journals Winter edition, with practical advice for those considering having dermal filler treatments.

Allergan, global pharmaceutical company and manufacturer of temporary filler Juvéderm®, found that 90% of those who had facial filler treatments were satisfied with their results – a glowing contrast to what is reported and sensationalised within everyday media.

Skin Treatments at S-Thetics – Patient Success Story

“My skin has always been incredibly sensitive, prone to outbreaks and redness. I thought that nothing could be done about it.

When I had my consultation with Sherina she really took the time to find out how I felt about my skin. She suggested the iS Clinical range of products and my skin has not looked this good in years.

The range of treatments available at S-thetics are amazing at getting the very best out of your skin.”

Patient testimonial, the Fire & Ice facial treatment

Fire & Ice facial treatment – Patient Experience

January 13, 2016 11:02 am Published by

Our latest testimonial from our patient, Annas, who has had several Fire & Ice facial treatments at S-Thetics:

“As a busy mother of two young children my skin regime is often last on my to-do list. Having regular Fire & Ice facial treatments has helped repair and maintain my skin, which was starting to look dull and made me look tired all the time.

The treatment is the most in depth and rejuvenating facial I have ever had. I walked out of the clinic with my skin glowing and the best thing is that the results build and improve over time. There is no recovery time so I can get back to my daily routine immediately, looking fresher with each treatment.

I’ve also been using the iS Clinical skincare regime, and friends have commented how much my skin is glowing again.

Having a treatment plan created specifically for me has helped me customise my regime to suit my lifestyle. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the treatment and clinic.”

 Annas, 40, Beaconsfield

Designed to resurface the skin, this intensive clinical treatment reduces fine lines and wrinkles and provides deep cleansing of blocked pores. It’s a multi-step treatment with two masque applications followed by application of a serum and a cream to soothe and moisturise the skin.

The Fire & Ice facial treatment is ideal for those seeking:

– instant results

– plumper, smoother, more hydrated skin

– reduction of fine lines and wrinkles

– customised to your individual needs

What happens?

The “Fire” portion of the treatment is an Intensive Resurfacing Masque clinically formulated with 18% unbuffered glycolic acid, citric acid, lactic acid, malic acid, vitamin B3, retinol and potent antioxidants, including green tea extracts. The treatment is applied for five minutes and is designed for use on the face, neck and décolleté – with a strong fragrance of cinnamon. The warmth that comes with this part of the facial is pleasant and tingly, and lasts for two to three minutes.

The “Ice” portion is a rejuvenating, cool, soothing and intensively hydrating masque with hyaluronic acid, Japanese green tea extracts, aloe vera gel, liquorice extracts, rosemary extracts and grape seed extracts. This second masque cools the initial peel to leave the skin invigorated and glowing and is applied for about 5 minutes. After a final cleanse, a moisturising serum and a strong sunscreen are applied to the face.

How long does it take?

Treatment time is 45 minutes, results are immediate, long lasting and natural in appearance.

Is there any downtime?

There is no downtime associated with this treatment. All treatments are customised to your skin, using our advanced VISIA facial imaging system.

Eight steps to consider if you are thinking of having dermal filler treatment

The Eight Steps to Facial Fillers

November 4, 2015 10:58 am Published by

In June The Times newspaper featured every skin enthusiast’s dream supplement – a special all about the future of skincare.

S-Thetics Raconteur Future of Skincare 10th June 2015Our very own surgeon and medical director Miss Sherina Balaratnam featured in the publication by Raconteur, outlining what you should be aware of before having a facial filler treatment.

 

Did you know that three million women would consider facial fillers? Allergan, global pharmaceutical company and manufacturer of temporary filler Juvéderm®, found that 90% of those who had facial filler treatments were satisfied with their results – a glowing contrast to what is reported and sensationalised within everyday media.

image-3-df

Below, we have listed eight key need-to-knows that we believe will help you on your facial filler journey:

1. The reason:

Consider why you want to have a facial filler treatment – how is it going to benefit you? Only ever consider semi-invasive treatment on your own terms.

2. Research:

One good way of being a step ahead is to do your research before booking a consultation. There are plenty of websites that will be able to answer your questions, but if you can contact someone who has previously undergone treatment, even better! Visit this-is-me.com to read more about real life experiences.

3. Location:

An important yet regularly dismissed aspect. A clinical setting is crucial for proper lighting ­- do not let someone inject you in a sitting room.

4. Qualified practitioner:

Finding a qualified practitioner is vital to ensuring a safe treatment. Make sure you ask your practitioner about their qualifications, and preferably only continue treatment with a qualified doctor, nurse or surgeon.

5. In-depth consultation:

Ideally, this should be at least half an hour, and your practitioner should record a clear medical history, any known allergies and answer any safety concerns associated with treatment.

6. Clinical assessment:

A good practitioner will undertake a detailed facial assessment before starting any treatment. They will advise on the best areas to treat and give you an idea of a realistic finishing result. At S-Thetics, Miss Balaratnam undertakes the ‘4D Approach’ using VISIA skin analysis to provide a detailed clinical assessment.

7. Treatment planning:

You should receive a personally tailored treatment plan to reach your goals, because, after all, no one size fits all. It may take slightly longer than you expect, but the results will be 10 times better.

8. Aftercare support:

Prior to treatment, ensure you will have access to aftercare support. This will allow you a more relaxed treatment journey, with your practitioner on hand to address any queries or issues that you may have.

Training fellow practitioners on the latest advanced injectable techniques

Training fellow practitioners on the latest advanced injectable techniques

Following these eight simple steps is just one way to ensure a safe and stress-free treatment journey.

Here at S-Thetics, we advocate safety first, and aim to make your journey as comfortable as possible. Fillers are a great way to repair volume loss and improve skin health, and we believe that they can be the synergy between skin wellness and ageing.

RADARA LOGO - TARGETED SKINCARE

Introducing RADARA™

November 2, 2015 12:26 pm Published by

We are delighted to announce the launch of Radara™, a unique micro-channelling skincare system designed to restore skin quality and diminish signs of ageing.

S-Thetics Beaconsfield Radara wrinkle reduction micro-channelling eye area

Radara™ is a one month regimen consisting of rejuvenating micro-channelling patches and a high purity, naturally derived hyaluronic acid (HA) serum, provided in a separate pump. Designed for use around the outer eye area for crows feet, the cleverly shaped, flexible and painless patches are coated with microscopic plastic structures (similar to needles) less than half a millimetre in length.

S-Thetics Beaconsfield Radara wrinkle reduction micro-channelling eye

We are delighted to be the first medical aesthetic clinic in Buckinghamshire, and one of a few in the world, who have been invited to join as a flagship launch clinic of this innovative technology.

S-Thetics Beaconsfield Radara wrinkle reduction how to use?

 

Radara™ is ideal as a complimentary product to existing skincare regimes and as a way to enhance and maintain results between aesthetic procedures. Radara™ is only available in selected medical aesthetic clinics.

“Many of my patients come to me with concerns around the periorbital (eye) area, such as fine lines, wrinkles and textural issues. However some may not be ready for injectable treatments and would prefer a non-invasive approach to rejuvenating the area.

Radara™ technology is ideal as it provides an alternative to injectables for treating the delicate eye area using a combination of innovative micro-channeling technology and topical hyaluronic acid. The micro-channels enable a deeper skin penetration of topicals to deliver hyaluronic acid where it’s needed the most for increased skin hydration and to restore smoothness and plumpness to the skin.”
