Red vein removal – FAQ’s

One of my favourite treatments to do is red vein removal on the face and neck.

Many people don’t realise first of all that it can be done at all and secondly how quick and easy it is.

I have put together the top red vein removal FAQ’s I get asked below. I hope you find it helpful.

stencil.facebook-post-13

What is it called – how do I find it on your menu?

Red vein removal, broken capillary treatment, short wave diathermy, electrodessication, cauterisation of broken veins. All the same thing 🙂 On our treatment list you will see it listed as short wave diathermy or red vein treatment.

Is it just for face?

I do work only on the visible veins on face and neck, sometimes upper chest. On the lower body the treatment is not as effective.

How long does it take?

It takes just seconds to treat a tiny capillary, up to a minute of treatment for a large spider vein. You can have just one large lesion treated or multiple capillaries in the same session. I treat up to 15 minutes in a single session which will allow for treating 20-30 capillaries depending on size. Each session is tailored for your own skin’s needs, tolerance level and sensitivities.

How many treatments will I need?

Tiny capillaries will disappear after one treatment in most cases. medium to larger ones will need 2-3 treatments. Fading of all size capillaries is achieved from the first treatment. Few people need more than 3 sessions taken in the space of 3-6 months. This is based on having an average distribution of visible capillaries on the nose and cheek area.

Are there any contraindications?

As always, there are some. You will be restricted if you have diabetes, are taking certain medications such as blood thinners or have undergone certain surgeries. We take a full consultation to determine suitability prior to treatment.

Can any other skin irregularities be treated in the same way?

Yes, this technology can be used in the same manner on lots of different types of benign skin lesions from milia to skin tags, sebaceous hyperplasia and round red ‘hot spots’ to name a few.

Décolleté Treatments from Skin Essentials

DĂ©colletĂ© Treatments from Skin Essentials – skin rejuvenation for the upper chest

Picture of a glamorous made up woman in strapless evening dress on a gold background with the text 'low neckline - no problem'

DĂ©colletĂ©, chest, cleavage area – whatever you call it, the issues are usually the same.

As this is an area that gets a lot of sun over the years, your décolleté can let you down in terms of accelerated skin ageing.

We generally don’t look after this area with skincare the way we would the face and neck and you can be left with dry, creased and uneven coloured or textured skin on your upper chest that can really give the game away when it comes to wearing anything even remotely low cut – never mind strapless!

Other skin issues that can affect the chest area are red veins, skin tags and pigment spots.

Are you one of the many women who avoid plunging necklines like the plague when shopping for a party or event dress – and doesn’t that really narrow your choices?! Well you don’t have to retract yourself any more. If you are bothered by any of the above then read on to find your simple, fast solution from Skin Essentials by Mariga.

Décolleté Treatments:

Age spots, sun spots – Simply removed with cryotherapy in a very quick treatment. Give yourself 3 weeks before a big event to heal completely! From €75

Red veins, skin tags, milia – We use diathermy electrodessication to remove these nuisance lesions (in the case of large skin tags we recommend cryotherapy instead, see above). From â‚¬70 

Uneven texture, rough or bumpy skin – We have several treatments for this issue depending on severity. From a customised acid peer (from €70) to TriFractional skin resurfacing using combined microneedling and radio frequency energy (€300) we have solutions for every need and budget. Call us to arrange your free consultation to determine which is best for you.

Crepey, lined and sun damaged skin – From a course of six TriPollar radiofrequency dĂ©colletĂ© treatments (€350 in a package price) which will smooth out lines for long-term results to a Pyramid Decollete Treatment (€395) for deeper lines and sun damage-related issues, we can design the treatment or course of treatments just for you.

These treatments are suitable for those looking for more long-term results rather than a last-minute fix!

See all our treatments here or call us on 053 9145981 / 086 3823608 to discuss a bespoke package for you. Our Wexford Town Skin Clinic is centrally based in Selskar Street, just off Redmond Square.

Should you use your skincare products on your chest too?

This is a personal choice of course, keeping this area rejuvenated and smooth is definitely easier in the long term if you use skincare products daily.

What do I recommend?

SPF30 during the day any time the skin of the chest is exposed – even if it’s winter or you are mostly inside! If your skin is covered then use a nice quality unscented body oil or lotion.

Age Slowly Serum – use one pump of serum over the upper chest area at least three times a week at night, daily for deeper revision.

Fast results on anti-ageing, fab for Christmas!

Does your face look younger than your neck?

Does your face look younger than your neck?

If so, you are definitely not alone.

We get many inquiries at our Wexford Town Skin Clinic as to what can be done for neck rejuvenation.

I think that there are a couple of main reasons so many people are having this issue:

  • Gravity vs Technology.
  • Botox/Fillers in the face.
sonia o sullivan, face and neck rejuvenation, skin essentials by mariga, wexford

Seeing this screen grab of Sonia O’Sullivan on TV recently inspired this post!

Up to now there has not been much on the market to combat the effects of gravity on the jowl area, under the chin and sides of the neck. This is where looseness appears first and it used to be practically impossible to correct without surgery.

Thankfully we now have non-surgical technology that can have a huge and lasting impact on the skin of the neck. From a gentle tweak on the first signs of ‘slippage’ using TriPollar radio frequency and DMA jawline lifting, to intensive correction using a blend of TriPollar and Pyramid Facelift technology we can create the perfect package for your needs and achieve visible, lasting results without surgery. 

The same techniques and technology apply to those who have noticed that anti-wrinkle and filler injections in the face have begun to leave them with a noticeable discrepancy between the age appearance of their face and their neck.

It is painful, costly and not always do-able to extend these treatments to the neck area so TriPollar and DMA is a fantastic option now available.

Remember, Skin Essentials by Mariga is the first in Ireland with this technology and you will not get this anywhere else in Wexford.

Great celeb skincare mention in Chic Magazine

The new celeb skincare favourite is our exclusive treatment – The Pyramid Facelift, and it’s causing quite the stir!

On Saturday, 15th Sept, we had a great surprise reading Chic Magazine in the Irish Daily Star.

We received another glowing mention from the well-known model and lifestyle guru, Vivienne Connolly.

Read Vivienne’s Chic interview here:

“When it comes to your beauty regime, obviously you can see changes in your skin as you get older which is caused by the fact you’re not producing as much collagen…”

“I use Skin Essentials by Mariga, she’s from Wexford, she recently gave me a non-invasive facelift before my holidays.

It’s not about cutting your face but stimulating your own natural collagen, although your face is red afterwards and you have to stay out of the sun for a few days.

I use her collagen serum in the morning and at night I use the Age Slowely Serum and Lipid Repair Concentrate, then I put a layer of deep moisturiser. 

When I started using them, I told Margia: ‘my skin doesn’t feel soft and lovely like it does with my own moisutriser’, and she said: ‘That’s because the cream you were using was wrong, it just sat there on top of your skin and didn’t do anything’, and I have noticed a big change in my skin since I started using her products.”

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.
