Universkin – the science of personalised skincare comes to Beaconsfield

March 24, 2016 1:25 pm Published by

This week I was privileged to spend time with two of the founders of Universkin in Nice, France, where this innovative skincare was developed.


Miss Balaratnam with Dr Dianna Murr and Dr Harry Arampatzis of the Universkin advisory board

This gave me the opportunity to see how a detailed skin consultation enables your precise formulation to be tailored to your individual skin concerns, that I see every day in my clinical practice in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire.


Why choose Universkin?

With so many skincare lines available, from high street chemists to beauty counters and online retailers, the choice can sometimes be overwhelming.

My patients typically come to me seeking advice on improving their overall skin health as well as with specific concerns and questions such as:

– Which combination of products should I be on?

– Do I need a different day and night regime?

– Can one range effectively treat multiple concerns?


My patients are also becoming increasingly aware of how their skin changes both through the seasons and with their lifestyle.

Universkin allows us to customise your skincare formulation precisely for your skin.


Created by Scientists and Doctors

Developed in Nice, France by a scientific board composed of world leading Plastic Surgeons, Dermatologists, Biologists, Facial Reconstructive Surgeons, Pharmacists and Anatamopathologists, Universkin is an exciting new concept in truly personalised skin care.


Addressing your skin concerns:

Universkin is based on functional dermatology where there are 8 functional treatments for 8 key types of skin diagnosis:

– Sun damage

– Sagging skin

– Dehydration

– Hyperpigmentation

– Acne

– Oily skin

– Rosacea and facial redness

– General skin rejuvenation and textural improvement


Why choose these active ingredients?

After extensive research into more than 30 years of clinical data, 20 active ingredients were selected:

  • Following established protocols from published clinical trials
  • No use of chemical preservatives
  • To adapt each treatment to the patient, not the other way around
  • To adjust the treatment over time according to the patients skin response
  • With guaranteed freshness and efficacy as they activate only when mixed into the Universkin Primum base serum


How are my personalised formulations created?



S-Thetics are one of the first 5 clinics in the UK to offer Universkin and the only clinic in Buckinghamshire. Universkin is exclusively available in clinics and not online or via the high street.

Skin Deep: How to reduce skin blemishes

March 2, 2016 9:42 am Published by

With winter weather settling in comfortably, summer can seem a long way off. Achieving our summer bodies begins in the winter and the same goes for your skin.


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.

Apart from our liver, our skin is the 2nd most mistreated organ, taking a beating from the cumulative and damaging effect of the sun, stress, lifestyle and hormonal change.

These are my top tips for reducing blemishes and improving your skin health this winter:

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.”

Nicky, 45, Beaconsfield

S-Thetics Beaconsfield Copper Hello Magazine

Copper – more than just heavy metal?

December 3, 2015 5:31 pm Published by

A recent article in Hello! magazine titled “Precious Metal”, discussed the many health benefits of copper, and how it is increasingly used in a range of products, from pillowcases to creams, gels and eye masks.

S-Thetics Beaconsfield Copper

  • Did you know that copper is used in the US to help patients recover after cosmetic surgery? Research has shown copper can promote both tissue repair and wound healing.
  • Copper PCA (“Pyrrolidone Carboxylic Acid”), draws moisture into the skin, helping to firm and prevent collagen loss. PCA also boosts copper levels in the skin, making it ideal for fighting inflammation and as a post-sunburn treatment.
  • PCA can also regulate the production of sebum, too much of which can cause acne, too little and our skin can become dry and cracked.

Our hero copper product is iS Clinical’s Copper Firming Mist, which helps firm and regulate the skin’s natural balance by featuring a combination of copper – an essential element –  and botanically sourced L-PCA.


  • Helps repair damage to the protective barrier to the skin
  • Provides immediate refreshing hydration
  • Improves skin elasticity & firmness
  • Boost skin’s radiance and luminosity
  • Addresses the drying effects of air travel
  • Excellent for Sunburn/Erythema
  • Anti acneic
  • Collagen Boosting
