Deluxe Dermal Infusion Skin Treatment

A brand new protocol from Skin Essentials!

I have created The Deluxe Dermal Infusion protocol in response to your requests to have a treatment that gives the relaxation of our signature classic facial plus the deep, long-lasting results of a clinical skin treatment.

Combining multiple elements from our extensive catalogue of exclusive specialist skin treatments, the Deluxe Dermal Infusion works on every layer of the epidermis to give you instant and lasting results for plumper, hydrated, revitalised and younger-looking skin.

What you can expect:

Skin is deeply and gently cleansed to prepare for all the goodness to follow…we then continue with a biodynamic lymphatic drainage massage of the face, neck and chest to promote nutrient exchange and drain any puffiness. (This is everyone’s favourite part of our custom facials, if you haven’t has this massage before, be prepared for a treat!!).  A custom-chosen enzyme is then applied to the face to work on any surface concerns and you will enjoy a hot stone shoulder massage while that activates. After removing with a hot towel steam cocoon  it is now time for the SmartMeso element of the treatment where Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C are infused deep into the epidermis to boost skin from within using nano-needling and electroporation technology. Finally we will massage in a deeply nourishing mask to condition and comfort the skin.

Taking approximately 80 minutes (a little more or less depending on how much infusion your skin needs during the SmartMeso phase of the treatment), the Deluxe Dermal Infusion treatment is available with Jane or Mariga, intro price €175.

Fixing my travel-tired skin – before and after pics

I’ve been doing a lot of travel for work lately and while it’s fun to see new people and places all the time, it definitely takes a toll on your face!

Yesterday I popped in to the opticians to look at the new stock (I LOVE buying glasses 😁) and took some selfies with a few styles on to look at later. Well! What I saw was tired, devitalised totally ancient-looking skin 😭 

Emergency repair works were needed immediately so I chose an EPM SmartMeso treatment, the fast-acting deep skin infusion therapy that infuses hyaluronic acid for hydrating and plumping, along with Vitamin C for revitalising, deep into the epidermis. 

Straight after treatment skin looks a little pink and can feel tight and warm but this morning I feel like I have a new (younger!) face.

I took a pic this morning with the same make up etc. that I had on yesterday and put them side by side to see the difference in just one day! 🥰 

What do you think? And should I buy those glasses I tried on??

I highly recommend this treatment if you need a quick skin pick-me-up.

New Skin Treatments for 2019

At Skin Essentials by Mariga we are always researching, learning and training to make sure that we are bringing you the very best in new skin treatments, as well as constantly updating our current offering to keep pace with industry developments worldwide. As you may know, Jane and I are just back from a week of extensive training and I wanted to bring you up to speed on what we were up to and let you in on the updates from the world of advanced non-invasive skincare.

List of new skin treatments coming to skin essentials by mariga clinic wexford in 2019 including lipofirmmed skin tightening, biodynamic lymph drainage massage, rejuvenation treatments for the skin of the neck, chest, oncology safe facials and skincare products, hormonal acne control

Although we do lots of training through the year, we find it really beneficial to do one intensive week where we can pack as much knowledge in as possible, meet the people who are making exciting changes in the beauty world, and connect with like-minded therapists. It’s just a bonus that this education takes place in the beautiful Desert Southwest of Phoenix, Arizona 😃

Every year we hear from expert formulators about what is new and emerging in the realm of skincare ingredients that we can potentially incorporate into our products and treatments (lots of new info on hormonal adult acne!), and then there are bonus workshops on different themes. This year that included learning from Becky Kuehn of Oncology Spa Solutions who has a passion for bringing oncology skincare to primary cancer care centres and training other therapists in this rewarding branch of our jobs. As I have been a qualified oncology skincare practitioner for a few years now, I was especially interested to hear the great work she is doing in the US and would love to see something similar happen in Ireland. We also enjoyed learning from Lori Crete, a renowned Beauty Business Coach on excellence in customer service and business practice and had an interesting talk from skincare formulator John Stanek, who finally managed to make me understand the concept of ‘heavy water’ as a skincare ingredient as opposed to a marketing term. His lecture on stem cells was also very interesting.

So what does all this mean for you, our lovely clients??

-More chemistry, bio-chemistry and physiology education always means a more micro-tailored treatment with predictable outcomes so every treatment we perform is enhanced every time we study the latest scientific discoveries.  But, you want to know what new treatments and/or products we brought back, don’t you? 😂

From this trip (and ongoing training we are undertaking here) you can expect the following from Skin Essentials over the next few weeks and months:

-A whole new suite of treatments aimed at rejuvenating the décolleté/chest area. Think reducing sun damage, plumping crepey and loose skin, eliminating sun spots, firming and brightening. From individual one-off treatments to refresh the skin of the chest to fully bespoke packages for dramatic rejuvenation, there will be something for you.

-Advancements in BioDynamic Lymphatic Drainage facial massage, relaxing, brightening and a Godsend for puffy skin.

-More oncology-safe facials

-The introduction of LipofirmMed Skin Tightening. Over twice the radiofrequency power of our current offering, this updated Divine Pro treatment can be done all over the face and neck for skin tightening and contour sharpening, or concentrated specifically on the neck and jawline for those of you who find that the neck area is your giveaway!

I think that’s enough to be going on with, don’t you?? As always we can tailor any treatment specifically for your needs so please reach out to us to find out how we can help you today.

Why is your acne treatment not working?

There is no doubt that acne is a traumatic experience for teens and adults alike.

One of the major focuses we have at Skin Essentials when dealing with acne is lessening the emotional impact of acne.

We do this by trying to clear your skin as much as possible as quickly as possible by first understanding your unique skin, it’s behaviour and history, then crafting a unique control plan just for you.

We never say the word ‘cure’ when it comes to acne, teen acne is firstly an inherited predisposition (yes, you can blame your parents), then is also hormonally triggered at puberty, and genetics and hormones are out of our hands!

What we CAN do though is to control the symptoms, keeping your skin as clear and calm as possible by eliminating all the other triggers and contributory factors such as clogged pores, excess or stagnant oil, inflammation and bad lifestyle habits.

Even given the fact that acne is different for every person, and can evolve and change as your hormones fluctuate, there are some great ingredients and treatments available that when used correctly can have fantastic effects on keeping breakouts and inflammation under control.

So, what are the reasons that you have ‘tried them all’ and they’re not working for you? Here are the most common reasons your acne treatment is not working:

  1. You’re not consistent. This is the number one reason we see why even the best programmes can fail. Acne never gives up, neither can you! To keep consistently clear you must keep consistent with your product use and treatments/check ups. No excuses.
  2. Related to No. 1 above – you thought you were finished. Many times over my career I have been frustrated to have this happen. I work with a client to get them clear of breakouts, and they do everything I ask. The acne clears and everyone’s happy. Fast forward 12 months and the acne is as bad as ever and they are back to square one. The reason? They stopped using the products because their ‘skin was good’. Do not fall into this trap! Remember, control is all we get, never cure! 
  3. You don’t keep a clean diet. I know it’s hard, but the gut and the skin are closely related and this is never so obvious as when dealing with acne. Unfortunately dairy products are a big no-no and I do get a lot of push-back from teens on this issue! Strictly restricting sugar and salt may also be necessary. Don’t blame me, I didn’t make the rules 
  4. You’re picking. Yes, I know you say you don’t. But we can tell. Always. This will cause blemishes to last longer, drive bacteria deeper, spread it around the surface of the skin and cause scarring. 
  5. It was never acne in the first place. Many people self-treat breakouts with over the counter products as a first point of action. While this is understandable I would encourage parents to bring their teen to a skin specialist  as early as possible. While most times it is teen acne you are dealing with, particularly if one or both parents suffered with it, there are some conditions that look like acne but are not. Some examples are fungal folliculitis (sometimes seen in boys who have recently started shaving), or bacterial infection. While not overly common, these conditions need to be treated in a much different manner, perhaps even medically, and you will not want to waste time and money trying to treat a non-acne issue with acne protocols.

Dewy Skin In A Hurry

Dewy skin is the biggest skincare trend for 2019,

But we have always believed that radiant, dewy skin is the key to looking brighter, fresher and younger.

Many of our treatments and products aim to promote fresh, dewy skin among other benefits and our latest one really takes this to the next level!

Dewy skin treatment Bullet points for Skin Essentials by Mariga mesotherapy wexford treatment are pain free, 84 per cent increase in absorption, non-invasive

Dehydration, whether short-term or long-standing is the number one cause of dull, sluggish skin.

Whether you are temporarily dehydrated due to weather, illness or travel, or if you have a longer-term dehydration issue from lifestyle factors or using inappropriate skincare products, we have a solution for you with our new SmartMeso suite of treatments.

Not a facial, yet still a natural, gentle treatment with little downtime, this is perfect for fast, visible results that last long beyond those of traditional hydrating or revitalising facials. It’s skincare, but not as we know it!

Infusing hydrating hyaluronic acid and revitalising vitamin C directly into the deep layers of the epidermis using a combined technology of mesotherapy, microneedling and electroporation, for the first time we can get ingredients directly to the lower epidermis where they can work from the inside out.

In this way, no ‘goodness’ of the ingredients is sacrificed to the traditional way of having to pass first through the upper epidermis which will break down molecules and take the first usefulness from ingredients, leaving less for the lower layers to utilise.

It is in the lower layers that hyaluronic acid is naturally made and stored, and it is here that the first signs of depleted hyaluronic acid show as fine lines, thinning skin and loss of plumpness or springiness on the skin’s surface.

What results can you expect?

  • Super-hydrated skin that glows with dewy radiance
  • Dehydration lines eliminated on cheeks
  • Visible plumping of fine lines around the eyes
  • Younger overall appearance
  • Improved texture – smooth skin

From a single session for a quick pick-me-up on skin that is running a little dull, dry or sluggish to intensive courses of six weekly treatments for deeper issues that need more work, we can craft a bespoke Micro-Infusion skin revitalising treatment for you.

Working underneath the epidermis to moisturise, hydrate and revitalise much deeper than traditional products or facials can reach, this is skincare – for the inside.

If you’d like to inquire about our SmartMeso suite of treatments, or any of our treatments, call us on 053 9145981. You can also book a treatment online.

Vivienne Connolly & The Pyramid Facelift

We were so pleased to have the wonderful actor, model and lifestyle guru – Vivienne Connolly, take a trip down to Wexford to try our exclusive Pyramid Facelift.

Actor, model and lifestyle guru Vivienne Connolly, here having the famous Pyramid Facelift

Having only launched this celebrity favourite treatment last July, the Pyramid Facelift has become the most sought after anti-ageing, skin tightening treatment at the Skin Essentials clinic!

The reaction so far has been fantastic, and the results speak for themselves…

dramatic results from pyramid facelift, exclusive to skin essentials, wexford

What’s involved?

The Pyramid Facelift combines TriPollar Radiofrequency, Trifractional radiofrequency, and Voluderm technology in one super-treatment for maximum impact and lasting results. (These may also be recommended separately or in a different combination for your skin, we personalise every course of treatment at consultation).

  • Best for: You have deeper wrinkles and noticeable laxity of the contours such as neck, jawline, mouth or eye area. You want a one-stop solution for reversing the signs of ageing and looking noticeable younger across all areas of the fas, eyes and neck. Also for pitted or indented acne scarring.
  • General age range: 40+
  • Treatment time: 40 minutes
  • Downtime? You may be red/pink for 3-10 days but can wear makeup from day after treatment
  • How many is needed? We will advise at your consultation, but 3-6 sessions is average

As we mentioned before, this is a non-invasive facelift and a great surgery alternative treatment. We don’t believe in invasive skin treatments and prefer to offer our clients a more natural and effective approach to anti-ageing and skincare needs.

On Vivienne Connolly’s visit to Skin Essentials, we also advised Vivienne on the best skincare products to use after getting the Pyramid Facelift so she can continue getting dramatic results weeks after the treatment.

Vivienne uses Hydra Collagen Serum, followed by the Advanced Protection Day Cream SPF30, Skin Comfort CleanserAge Slowly Serum, Lipid Repair Concentrate, Skin Comfort Cream.

We were so delighted to see Vivienne’s write up in the Sunday Independent where she named Skin Essentials by Mariga her favourite skincare products!

EPM – the end of facials?

The latest treatment launch from Skin Essentials by Mariga is EPM – a combination skin therapy designed to allow skin-boosting ingredients to cross the stratum corner (skin’s protective outer layer) in a minimally invasive way to get to the lower layers where they can hydrate, revitalise and plump up the skin layers from the inside out. Giving you incredibly hydrated, plump, dewy results that last.

I am so excited to introduce this brand new technology to Ireland, and I’m sure you are all going to love it as much as I do!

The techie bit: Combining electroporation and microchip transdermal technology with cosmetic microneedling techniques, this is an advanced type of mesotherapy.

How is the EPM facial treatment different from traditional mesotherapy?  Traditional mesotherapy uses needles to deliver skin-enhancing ingredients to the lower layers of the skin. In this new, patented treatment the SmartMed microchip delivers the same results but in a less invasive way.

Electroporation utilises short bursts of electrical current to create temporary pathways into the skin cell membrane, increasing permeability and absorption potential. At the same time the nano needles deliver high grade Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C to be used by the skin as a revitalising and hydration medium, getting these skin-loving ingredients deep down where they can accelerate and enhance metabolic processes. the dermal reserve of the skin (where hydrating factors are found) is boosted resulting in visible radiance at the surface.

As a secondary effect, the microneedling element stimulates fibroblasts to produce collagen fibres at a higher rate, giving you long term anti-ageing benefits as well as the fast surface results gained from the EPM aspect of the treatment.

If all this sounds like it is only for the brave, don’t worry! This treatment is quite comfortable to have, easier by far than traditional microneedling, as it does not go as deep. You will be pink afterwards and pretty much back to normal by the next day. The depth, intensity and speed of the application are all adjustable to each skin type and level of sensitivity.

I’m really excited about this treatment as it gives the results that you love from a hydrating facial but in a much deeper way, meaning the results last a lot longer even from a single session. Imagine that soft, dewy feeling you have straight after your facial, but every day! This exciting new technology even has me wondering if facials are going to become a thing of the past!!
