Introducing Oxygenetix, The World’s Most Breathable Foundation

June 20, 2016 11:09 am Published by

Introducing the world’s most breathable foundation to S-Thetics Medical Aesthetic clinic, Oxygenetix.

Oxygenetix foundation was originally developed to heal and conceal skin after cosmetic surgery and cosmetic procedures such as micro-needling, lasers and peels.

Oxygenetix not only helps promote the healing process of a number of skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, acne scars, dry and sensitive skin, but is the ideal foundation for everyday wear.

“My patients have been increasingly asking me to recommend make up which can be used post-procedures such as micro-needling but also for a range they can use everyday and to help manage sensitive skin and break-out’s.
Oyxgenetix is ideal for this purpose and cares for your skin whilst allowing it to breathe.”

Miss Sherina Balaratnam, MBBS, MRCS, MSc (UCL)

Medical Director, S-Thetics

About Oxygenetix

First launched in Beverley Hills in 2008, this is a high-end foundation, with a combined 160 years of cosmetic and medical expertise behind it.

Oxygenetix is the official make-up line for 17 Hollywood film studios and is a must-have product for leading make-up artists.

It has real skin care benefits, provides flawless coverage and delivers an unsurpassed, oxygen-enriched formula that allows skin to breathe more than any other foundation brand available.

The prime ingredient in the product is the pro-healing, patent-pending Ceravitae™ a super charged oxygen complex that promotes collagen cell production and connective tissue growth in aging and wounded skin.

It is also natural Aloe Barbadensis gel based (not water-based like most foundations, that often attract bacteria to the skin) and provides anti-bacterial qualities, protects compromised skin, while astringently removing dead surface cells.

Furthermore, it is transfer and water resistant, which allows it to stay on for hours even in humid environments. Its oxygen enriched and natural components make it virtually a second skin.

Q. I have sensitive skin, can I use Oxygenetix?

A. Oxygenetix is safe for every skin type; including post-procedural and sensitive skin. It soothes and promotes healing of skin and doesn’t irritate or cause break-outs.

Q. What is Ceravitae™ and what does it do?

A. Ceravitae™ does the heavy lifting when it comes to proliferating young, fresh and plump skin cells, by delivering high amounts of oxygen. This aerobic effect helps to make those vital productive cells work harder.

Q. Can Oxygenetix be used as an everyday make-up?

A. Yes, Oxygenetix was formulated for post-operative healing and full, undetectable coverage. Continued use promotes youthful, healthy skin through oxygen driven cellular turnover in a breathable, second skin formula.

Q. I have acne can I use Oxygenetix?

A. Yes, our Oxygenetix range features a specific Acne Control foundation with time-released 2% salicylic acid to uniquely deliver proprietary acne control ingredients whilst also allowing your skin to breathe.

Q. Is Oxygenetix good for your skin?

A. Oxygenetix is great skin care that just happens to be a make-up product.

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.

Universkin-buckinghamshire-yourskinyourformula-beaconsfield

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.

yourskinyourformula-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?

Universkin-Buckinghamshire-YourSkinYourFormula-S-Thetics

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.

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.”

Lucy, 42, Cotswolds

iS Clinical Fire & Ice treatment

Buy any 3 iS Clinical products in January and receive a free Express Fire & Ice facial treatment

January 15, 2016 2:04 pm Published by

Kick start your January skin regime.

Buy any 3 iS Clinical products in January and receive a free Express Fire & Ice facial treatment.

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.

“Put it this way, a week or so before having the treatment, I was considering Botox – and now I’m not”

Lisa Barrett, 48, beauty and wellbeing journalist and blogger at http://Glowology.co.uk

The Fire & ice is known as the “Hollywood Red Carpet facial” and works by removing the top loose layers of the epidermis, whilst the superficial trauma to the skin stimulates the skins healing mechanism to boost collagen production. This delivers clearer, smoother and tighter skin that is instantly more radiant with a youthful glow, all with no downtime.

Find out why the Fire & Ice is a favourite of Halle Berry and Gwneth Paltrow and long standing best selling treatment at the Four Seasons, Beverley Hills.

Endymed skin tightening treatments at S-Thetics Skin Clinic in Beaconsfield

How can non-invasive skin tightening and body contouring help you?

September 30, 2015 9:43 am Published by

Are you concerned with:

  • stretch marks
  • acne scars
  • loose / crepey neck skin
  • jowls and / or loss of definition to your jawline
  • bingo wings
  • post baby mummy tummy

Find out more about EndyMed™3DEEP® at S-Thetics. Ideal for skin tightening, body contouring and fractional skin resurfacing, using advanced, FDA approved radiofrequency technology.

It is also ideal for post-baby mums who want that extra help to tighten their tummies that even exercise and diet may not shift, as this video illustrates:

Endymed has also been nominated for Treatment of the Year at the upcoming Aesthetics Awards.

The key areas where EndyMed™3DEEP® Skin tightening and contouring is most effective are:

  • Facial skin tightening:

    • Tightens and lifts lax and sagging skin in the cheek, jowl and neck areas

    • Tightens and lifts skin in the eye contour area; under the eye, above the eye and above the brow

  • Body skin tightening and contouring:

    • Tightens and lifts lax and sagging skin on smaller, exposed body areas like the décolleté, upper arms and knees

    • Tightens, lifts and improves contours and cellulite on lax and sagging skin on larger body areas such as the tummy, bottom, thighs and flanks.

EndyMed™ Tightening and Contouring works from the inside out to firm and tighten collagen, smoothing the skin leaving it firm and plump. It can be used on the face, neck, décolleté and body: at S-Thetics, this treatment can be carried out by either Miss Balaratnam or our expert medical aesthetician.

EndyMed™ Fractional Skin Resurfacing levels off the skin, ironing out stretch marks and scars as well as shrinking pores and improving texture. This treatment is only carried out by Miss Balaratnam and leaves the skin feeling revitalised and as good as new.

Our skin tightening with Endymed 3DEEP® and Fire & Ice facial treatments both deliver excellent results, but our Signature treatment incorporates both of these to deliver the ultimate combination.
