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.

Lip Enhancement – Patient Success Story

May 27, 2016 6:53 am Published by

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.

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.”

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.

Patient Success Story at S-Thetics Medical Aesthetic Clinic, Beaconsfield

April 28, 2016 11:46 am Published by

Hear from our patient, Grace, 37, who recently had a medical consultation followed by muscle relaxing treatment at S-Thetics Clinic.

“I have 2 children the eldest is 5 so I’ve had 5 years of no sleep basically!

I did a bit of my own research on Sherina and was very impressed.

Sometimes you can really tell when people have had fillers or BOTOX® done and it’s really not noticeable that I’ve had it, I just look a lot more well rested.

I’m really happy, I’ll definitely continue and I would definitely recommend S-Thetics to anybody”

Muscle-relaxing injections are a type of non-permanent cosmetic treatment, which can be used to effectively treat fine-to-medium lines and wrinkles by relaxing the underlying muscles in the skin.

At S-Thetics we use the market-leading brand of muscle-relaxing injections, BOTOX®. This product has been on the market for over 25 years and was originally approved by the FDA as a medical treatment for a number of muscular conditions.

During this time, it has been extensively studied with more than 65 clinical trials involving 15,000 people, making it one of the most reliable, effective and safe products on the market.

Muscle relaxing injections are commonly used to treat:

  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet

  • Jawline lift and necklace lines (Nefertiti lift)

  • Excessive teeth grinding and clenching

  • Excessive underarm sweating (Hyperhidrosis)

We advise all new patients to return for a dose review three weeks after their initial treatment to ensure the best results.

Overall reduction in skin pigmentation

Skin Treatments – Patient Success Story

February 15, 2016 10:25 am Published by

“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.”

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!”

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

Acne & Acne Scarring – patient experience

Read and watch Katie’s testimonial below, who has had her acne and acne scarring addressed using a combination approach of topical skincare, facial treatments and microneedling:

“Before using iS clinical I was extremely self conscious of my appearance as I would get the odd acne breakout, and had some acne scars which I wasn’t happy with. I would never leave the house without a full face of make up. I struggled even taking off my make up in front of people even if it was in the comfort of my own home.

After only a few weeks I noticed a massive difference with my skin, the texture was smoother and a lot flatter, the colour in my skin was more even and clear. This was only the beginning. After a month or so I saw continued improvement, my skin is squeaky clean and almost glowing. I began to get constant compliments about the appearance of my skin, with friends asking what foundation I have been using and how my skin looks so flawless and glowing.

S-Thetics Beaconsfield Acne testimonial acne scarring improvement_web

Katie following her acne treatment course at S-Thetics

The most impressive thing was that I wasn’t wearing any foundation at all. I have completely stopped using foundation now because of the iS Clinical skin products and I feel confident to not put any make up on to go out. My skin has never felt or looked so good.”

Katie, 19, Beaconsfield

Our patient Katie came to us as she was unhappy with her skin. She had suffered with severe acne throughout her teens and eventually underwent treatment with Roaccutane to treat this. There were some residual acne breakouts after she had finished this treatment, as well as redness to her skin due to the inflammation that the years of acne had caused. She was also very self conscious about the acne scarring on her face which made her always cover her face with make-up.

Acne is a skin condition which affects many of us, at various stages of life. Commonly linked with changes to hormone levels during puberty, adult acne can also affect many people throughout their life.

At S-Thetics we have a range of advanced treatments which can manage not only active acne but also help reduce acne scarring, using devices, topical cosmeceutical skincare and facial treatments.

We believe in a multi-disciplinary approach to managing your skin conditions. We will start the treatment plan first by carrying out a detailed consultation, facial assessment as well as a VISIA digital skin analysis.
