Patient Success Story – Combination Laser Treatment for Skin Rejuvenation

July 4, 2017 5:56 pm Published by

“Getting to a certain age and feeling I needed some help with my face I visited several large and small clinics around my area.
Each clinic was quite happy to pump my face full of fillers and/or botox however the amazing Miss B of S-Thetics was the only person to ask about me, my lifestyle, my beauty regime and actually felt my face and not just holding up the sides as the rest had done!

I initially had a HydraFacial – amazing, what a clean and something I have kept up with.

I then had Icon ThreeForMe laser treatment – I am normally rather cynical of these things but the results were fantastic – my skin is brighter, tighter and fresher and my pigment from sun damage is gone, it really does do what it says.

I am over joyed with the results and whole experience and cannot recommend S-Thetics enough.”

Nikky, 54, Buckinghamshire

Our patient, Nikky, recently had x3 ‘ThreeForMe’ combination laser treatments at S-Thetics Clinic, each taken monthly.

How does it work?

The procedure is performed in two steps, or “passes”:

  1. The first pass uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology to treat discoloration for a more even-looking appearance. This includes sun-damage such as freckles, brown spots, or age spots. This pass also addresses unwanted facial veins including broken blood vessels, spider veins and rosacea.
  2. The second pass uses a “microbeam” laser technology that will gently renew the skin for a smoother-looking appearance. This unique technology works by stimulating new collagen and elastin production – the keys to the support structure of our skin. Improved skin structure results in the reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, scars and other surface imperfections.

ThreeForMe-laser-skin-treatment-S-Thetics

Am I suitable for treatment?

ThreeForMe laser treatments can be safely used on most skin types and for common aging and sun-related skin conditions including wrinkles, sun spots and facial vessels.

During your consultation, we will determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure based on a variety of personal factors.

How long does it take?

Treatment time is around 30 minutes.

How does it feel?

During ThreeForMe treatments most people feel only minimal discomfort. During the treatment you may feel some mild cooling as the laser is guided over the treatment area along with a slight sensation similar to the snapping of a rubber band.

After treatment, you may experience some minor redness and swelling similar to a mild sunburn for a couple days, however this can be covered up with Oxygenetix.

All patients have the option of having a topical anaesthetic cream applied to the treatment area(s)  prior to treatment. This helps to minimise any discomfort during the treatment.

How frequently do I need them?

Typically our patients have 1-3 procedures at one-month intervals. However, as everyone’s skin conditions are different, your treatment plan is customised and agreed with you, following on from your VISIA skin analysis and consultation.

Patient Success Story – Post pregnancy tummy skin tightening

May 29, 2017 11:01 pm Published by

“I am absolutely thrilled with my Endymed radiofrequency treatment results to treat the loose skin on my tummy. Since my pregnancies (13 and 10 years ago) I have suffered from loose crepey skin on my tummy, which was previously always very toned and flat.

Despite exercise it has never improved and has made me feel so self conscious and very middle aged. I felt as if the skin here was detached from the rest of me.

After having 6 sessions I am thrilled with the improvement.  My tummy feels and looks tighter, the improvements have been staggering. My husband has also commented on how good I look, and I feel more confident in underwear.

I am looking forward to getting into a bikini this Summer for the first time since having my children.”

After photo taking following x6 Endymed Shaper treatments at 12 weeks

Our patient, Louise, who recently had a program of x6 Endymed Shaper treatments, each carried out weekly.

Whether it’s simply caused by skin ageing, pregnancy or weight loss, many of us suffer with loose, sagging skin on the body. With ENDYMED SHAPER you can take back control and regain your confidence by tightening up those problem areas; the tummy, love handles, bottom and thighs.

How does it work?

A specialist handpiece is used to deliver controlled, focused radiofrequency deep into your skin, which gently generates the optimum level of heat to stimulate your skin cells.

The energy heats your skin at the precise point where your collagen resides, contracting the collagen that’s already there, and crucially, creating brand new collagen.

This in turn improves the underlying structures of your skin, tightening and contouring the area and reducing overall circumference as well as reducing cellulite.

Which areas can be treated?

Body contouring and cellulite reduction is ideal for the waist, abdomen, peri-umbilical area, buttocks, hips, and inner and outer thighs.

How long do results last?

Results can last years depending upon your skin’s particular natural ageing process, although we recommend top-up treatments every three to six months.

Is there any downtime?

The treatment has been likened to a hot stone massage – it’s generally a relaxing experience as the handpiece is moved across the skin in a circular motion. Your skin will feel warm, but not uncomfortably so, and may go a little red – although it’ll quickly return to normal following the procedure.

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.

Lip Enhancement – Patient Success Story

Photo after dermal filler lip treatment with subtle increase in lip volume. Taken 2 weeks post-treatment.

“I could not be any happier with my lip enhancement. Since I can remember I have felt self conscious and paranoid about my top lip, it completely disappeared when I smiled and because of this it made me want to never laugh or smile!

I am a girl of 26 who loves to socialise and am extremely outgoing therefore this had a huge effect on me. I went for a consultation with Sherina and I instantly felt at ease, I was greeted by Louise who made me comfortable prior to my consultation.

Meeting Sherina I knew I was in good hands, after taking some photos and discussing Juvederm, a hyaluronic acid dermal filler, I felt so confident in my decision to choose S-Thetics and I booked myself in for the following week.

My lip augmentation was quick and easy, numbing cream on and injections in, all done with care, time and patience to ensure I was happy with the results.

I had breaks in between where I held a mirror so I was talked through the process and the minor changes made. Throughout the entire process I had made it clear to Sherina I did not want them to look over done or too dramatic and the results I got were better than I had ever imagined.

I have only Sherina to thank, for finally giving me my smile back!”

About Miss Sherina Balaratnam, founder and Medical Director of S-Thetics Clinic

What happens?

All patients have the option of having a topical anaesthetic cream applied to the treatment area(s) for 30 minutes prior to treatment. This helps to minimise any discomfort during the treatment.

How long does it take?

Treatment time is up to 30 minutes depending on the areas selected and results are immediate, long lasting and natural in appearance.

Treatments can be phased over more than one appointment, giving you control over the ideal look you wish to achieve.

Do the injections hurt?

The latest dermal fillers contain lidocaine, an anaesthetic within the product, and we use the finest gauge needles. Topical anaesthetic cream can also be applied 30 minutes prior to treatment, all of which make lip filler treatment relatively painless.

How frequently do I need them?

Depending on the area treated and injectable filler product selected, you can expect the results to last up to 1 year.

Patient Success Story – Acne and Acne Scarring treatments at S-Thetics Clinic, Beaconsfield

May 5, 2016 11:35 am Published by

Hear from our patient, Katie, 20, who has had her acne and acne scarring addressed using a combination approach of topical skincare, facial treatments and microneedling.

“When I had acne I was very self conscious. I refused to leave the house, I used to have panic attacks because people would stare at me in the street.

When I finished having acne I just had to deal with the scars.

I’ve had the Fire & Ice treatment, because they do wonders to your skin. I’ve had the HydraFacial as well and I’ve also had some microneedling treatment.

I’ve noticed a dramatic change in my skin. It’s absolutely amazing. You don’t notice it straightaway it is quite a long term thing I would definitely recommend it to anyone I know.”

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!”
