Celebrity treatments: What does Norma Sheahan use?

“The Beauty Product

Mariga Sheedy is the best skin expert in Ireland. She’ll design a skincare programme that is unique to your needs. Her products are magic. She has done amazing non-invasive, anti-aging treatments on me.” – Norma Sheahan.

Sunday Independent 9/11/2018

So many of you have reached out to us this week after seeing the interview with Irish A-list actor and beautiful person Norma Sheahan in the Sunday Independent magazine.

The big questions have been around what treatments has she had and what products is she using so I thought that a blog post covering these might be of interest.

Before I detail Norma’s journey with Skin Essentials I would like to thank Norma for her kindness in publicly recommending Skin Essentials and assure everyone that all details and photos of Norma’s skincare journey are being reproduced with her permission!

Norma has very generously allowed me to photograph and record her progress to share with our clients. But of course in general all your interactions with Skin Essentials by Mariga are kept in complete confidence, unless you choose to share your results yourself – and a heartfelt thank you to those who do, it really helps others to make the right choice when looking for skincare services and products.

So, to Norma’s skincare diary:

As Skin Essentials by Mariga’s core ethos is natural, non-invasive yet visible results on anti-ageing this fitted perfectly with Norma’s preference for a healthy, youthful look, achieved by encouraging and supporting the skin to perform as it did in youth, without resorting to injectables or other invasive procedures.

The aim was to look like the freshest, rested, most radiant version of herself while retaining a completely natural look.

As with all corrective skincare programmes, we began with homecare to restore health, balance and integrity to the skin. This is a crucial step in any long-term results-driven anti-ageing programme. Without giving your skin all the ingredients it needs to fuel optimum collagen production, the results obtained from advanced facial treatments will not ‘take’ as deeply or last as long.

Once the skin was being properly supported on a daily basis with collagen-boosting and integrity-building ingredients we were able to begin clinical treatments to tighten, contour and refine the skin.

We chose the Pyramid Facelift for Norma’s treatments. This combines three technologies in one intensive  session to target the three main areas of skin ageing:

  1. TriPollar Radiofrequency to contract existing collagen fibres giving a smoothing and lifting effect while also stimulating new collagen growth.
  2. TrFractional Radiofrequency to resurface the skin, giving a beautiful soft smooth texture by refining pores, decreasing wrinkle depth, tightening jawline and eye area contours and smoothing out any areas of old scarring or bumpy texture.
  3. Voluderm for a natural filler effect to increase facial volume in areas that might be getting a little hollow or flat such as cheeks, mouth or under-eyes.

These technologies can be used alone where only one is needed, or combined to address all signs of ageing in one. As we have many clients that travel long distances to our Wexford Town skin clinic we find that the combination of the three technologies together – the Pyramid Facelift – is the most popular as it means maximum results in the fewest visits.

Results will be seen from the first  session and the number of sessions required for each individual will be determined at the first consultation.

Generally speaking for a freshening of the appearance on skin that has only just begun to show faint line lines, texture changes or the first sagging of jawline or eye contours one to two treatments will be enough.

Where these visual signs of ageing have taken a deeper hold you would need to have three treatments and for deep revision we recommend six. Each is taken on average 3 weeks apart.

For Norma we decided to go with three treatments. I think a picture will say far more than words to show clearly the rejuvenation achieved!

These results will last several years when maintained correctly with daily home-care and occasional top-up single treatments (again, top-up frequency will be determined on a case-by-case basis but most people will return for a single top up treatment every 6-12 months.

Meghan Markle Has Pyramid Facelift Treatments

Does Duchess of Sussex and wife to Prince Harry Meghan Markle have Pyramid Facelift Treatments?

Celebrity plastic surgeon Mr. Gary Ross, says she has!

Commenting in UK celebrity magazine Reveal on how ageless Meghan’s skin looks he says “Non-invasive tightening treatments like the Pyramid Facelift could also explain her smooth, almost ageless skin.

As a Royal, Meghan needs to maintain natural beauty, so is unlikely to do anything drastic now.”

Meghan Markle pyramid facelift, Is Meghan Markle's ageless skin down to #pyramidfacelift treatments? Get this royal treatment exclusively in Ireland from Skin Essentials by Mariga, Wexford

Is Meghan Markle’s ageless skin down to #pyramidfacelift treatments?

I would agree that to maintain natural beauty and youthful skin so that you never have to go down the invasive route, these treatments are absolutely perfect. From gentle skin tightening treatments to deep anti-wrinkle results the Pyramid Facelift and Divine Pro technology can be customised to every anti-ageing need.

Best of all, it’s completely natural.

For a young skin like Meghan’s I would recommend a single treatment once or twice a year as a preventative measure to make sure that collagen production is kept at optimum levels. For older skin already needing correction courses of 3-6 treatments are best.

Of course, homecare is a vital step in ageless skin and you must maintain your results with great skincare products daily. Our therapists will be happy to guide you in making the best choices for your skin.

If you are thinking of following in Meghan’s footsteps and maintaining / regaining your youthful skin the natural way then we advise booking in for our free Divine Pro consultation with one of our skin experts in our Wexford Town Clinic.

The Pyramid Facelift is exclusive to Skin Essentials by Mariga in Wexford, we brought this technology to Ireland. You don’t have to be Meghan Markle to access top of the range treatments like the Pyramid Facelift, all our clients get the royal treatment😀

Divine Pro Skin Tech Launch – what will it do for you?

Are you as excited as I am for the launch of our new advanced treatments??

It has been the ultimate quest for me since I started Skin Essentials to bring you the latest and absolute best in non-surgical skin treatments.

From being the first in Europe with Bio-Photas LED treatments to the being only Irish skin clinic personally trained and qualified by the No.1 global microneedling educator Dr. Lance Setterfield, it has always been my mission to seek out and offer you the best available results-driven protocols on the market – while avoiding the fads and fake-science that unfortunately flourishes on social media!

The very latest and greatest of scientific skin treatment advances has been in development and refinement over the last couple of years and I have been watching with great interest to see the results of combined, or fractional, radio frequency.

This is a new way of combining technologies to bring unprecedented and long-term results on skin tightening and also on acne scarring, offering never-before-available solutions to skin that has up to now been only recoverable by surgery.

And of course, Skin Essentials has been front of the line, waiting for the Irish release of this technology and I am delighted to announce that the Pyramid Facelift will make it’s Irish debut exclusively at Skin Essentials by Mariga in Wexford, always keeping our clients at the very forefront of non-invasive skin rejuvenation!

Have a look at some of the before and after pics of results being achieved by UK clinicians working with this technology over the last few months (photos reproduced with permission from AES UK Ltd. and Shane Cooper) and watch the video below to see the science behind this amazing new technology and get more info on our Gen4 page here where you can also sign up to receive news of our incredible intro offers!
