Competition – win Ultrasun’s new anti-pigmentation product worth £30 – now closed!

Win a sample of Ultrasun’s new face product worth £30 – it reduces the appearance of pigmentation marks in just 14 days.
After wrinkles, pigmentation is the next top skin worry for women as an uneven skin tone can be ageing. Brown patches of pigmentation can appear on hands, face and décolletage areas and are often caused by sun exposure and specifically the UVA rays which penetrate deep into your skin and cause ageing. Many women find pigmentation to be embarrassing and admit that having it can lower their confidence.
In recent years, the only way to treat pigmentation has been with lasers which are costly and sometimes painful. Thankfully new advances in the cosmetic industry have resulted in leading sun care brand, ultrasun, developing an anti-ageing sun protection cream with anti-pigmentation technology which is suitable for even the most ultra sensitive of skins!
Abi Cleeve, Managing Director of ultrasun UK, recognised a need from her existing customer base for a sun care product that could not only protect and prevent pigmentation, but also reduce it effectively. In reaction to this, ultrasun UK has built upon its best-selling face range and launched for 2014, the ultrasun Face 50+ Anti-Pigmentation.
Ultrasun Face 50+SPF Anti-Pigmentation Airless Pump 50ml: £30.00
• For all skin types, especially ultra sensitive skin. Not just for the summer!
• The light texture absorbs quickly leaving a matt finish. Apply to cleansed skin on the face, neck and décolleté and hands.
• Active ingredients – anti-oxidants, Ectoin.

Dr. Theresa Bush (pictured above) answers your top questions:

What is micro-pigmentation? 

 Medical micro-pigmentation or permanent skin camouflage is a subdivision of Dermatological and Cosmetic Surgery designed to improve the appearance of a variety of skin conditions and skin abnormalities. Much of the work I do involves either ‘normalising’ irregular skin colour or matching damaged skin to the surrounding area so it blends naturally, rendering scars and skin imperfections inconspicuous on close inspection. For many people with a skin imperfection, micro-pigmentation can provide a good cosmetic result that helps rebuild patients’ confidence. 

What skin conditions can be treated? 
 Medical micro-pigmentaiton can be effective at treating a wide range of skin abnormalities, imperfections and conditions, including scars, cleft lips, stretch marks, vitiligo, hypo and hyper pigmented skin, birthmarks, breast surgery scars, burns, mohs surgery, corrective procedures, skin grafts, age spots, necklace lines, areola pigmentation. For before and after photos please see 

What does the procedure involve? 
Medical micro-pigmentation involves the use of hypoallergenic dermatological medical grade pigments blended to match the skin tone required, and then applied to the skin using specifically-designed instruments. The medical pigments used are metabolically inert and therefore different to tattooing ink. The pigments are immune to the biological changes in the skin or changes induced by external factors, ensuring that the original shades of the pigment are retained.
Practitioners carefully ‘colour in’ or ‘colour out’ unsightly or unwanted marks, be they lighter or darker than the surrounding skin tone. The procedure is virtually pain-free, with a local aesthetic (topical gel) and healing or down time is minimal with only four to six weeks required between treatments. (The number of treatments required varies according to condition being treated and the individual’s skin type). 

How do you get an appointment / more information? 
Patients are routinely referred to Dr. Bush via cosmetic surgeons, dermatologists, trauma surgeons and GP’s. For more information visit or call DermInk on 0845 475 9410

Renew Medica opens new clinic in Harrods London


Renew Medica, a leader in non-surgical cosmetic procedures in London and the South East, has opened a new clinic at Harrods in London.

On offer at Harrods and its other 14 clinics in the South East is a full-range of of on invasive skin treatments on offer including Laser Hair Removal, Photo-Rejuvenation (IPL), Skin Health Restoration, Micro-Dermabrasion, Botox, Wrinkle Treatment, Hyperhidrosis Control, Dermal Fillers and MesoGlow, to VISIA Complexion Analysis System, Remedial Electrolysis, (spelling) Micro-Pigmentation, Facial Chemical Peels and Sclerotherapy.

Clinical Director, Dr Sach Mohan, leads Renew Medica’s impeccable team of doctors, nurses and aestheticians.

He comments, “With such a fantastic team of skin experts and specialists, I am proud to say that Renew Medica is leading the Industry in advanced skin treatments and laser hair removal, with the highest level of service and clinical results. To announce the opening of our new flagship site within the Urban Retreat, Harrods is another milestone for us, but we will continue to make Renew Medica more accessible and affordable to all, and we look forward to build on our current 14 clinics.”

Renew Medica’s Harrods Flagship Site will also conduct Body Contouring and Skin Tightening treatments – The Accent System – a painless dual mode radio frequency device used for the treatment of Cellulite, body and facial skin tightening and contouring to help eliminate stubborn fat areas that diet and exercise alone are unable to remove. The Accent system is already accruing a phenomenal response, and this safe, non invasive treatment requires fewer sessions than other popular systems with longer lasting results, and finally gives a genuine alternative to those not wishing to go under the knife.

The most popular chain in London for Laser Hair Removal, Renew Medica is the one of the few practices that offers a variety of Laser treatment systems, according to different skin types, contrary to most clinics, who only offer one treatment type for all. The three types of Laser treatment that Renew Medica offers are: YAG – for ethnic skin types; Alex – for extremely fair skin; and Diode – for all other skin types. Renew Medica will also be launching the new Soprano XL System, the revolutionary painless laser hair removal system.

“Not all Lasers are the same, and clinical results and efficacy vary, depending on the technology used and whether this is appropriate for your skin type.”

Renew Medica is also renowned for the unique Botox Wrinkle Treatment it offers to clients. Creating a natural look by perfecting the technique, avoiding the frozen look associated with American practitioners, the artistry adopted by the Renew Medica specialists revolves around appreciating each individual’s facial anatomy. As well as the obvious purpose of removing facial lines, the Botox treatment at Renew Medica is also effective in inducing and augmenting eyebrows, eliminating tension headaches and excessive sweating, especially popular amongst the hand shaking right palms of city executives.

With climate change and increased exposure to environmental pollution accelerating the rise in poor skin health, another popular service offered by Renew Medica is the superior quality skin analysis. Adopting the technologically advanced Visia skin mapping system, which allows for the identification and monitoring of common skin conditions such as the extent of sun damage to the skin, wrinkling, vascular lesions and hyperpigmentation, Renew Medica has established itself as the leading provider of Skin Health Restoration treatments, and a full range of treatment options are provided, to improve the client’s skin.

Cosmedix, the cosmeceutical range of plant botanicals-based skin care products carried by Renew Medica offers a variety of retinol based creams.

Hailed as the Holy Grail in Anti-aging, retinol helps in increasing skin cell production, collagen synthesis and blood supply. Renew Medica skin experts also offer effective treatments for acne, sun damage, dark patches and open pores, that are available following a thorough skin analysis and consultation using the Visia or Woods Lamp.
