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.

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!!

Hyaluronic Acid & Vit C Skin Infusions

Our brand new treatment – SmartMeso – is a dermal infusion of Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C, two of the top ingredients for a youthful, radiant, hydrated skin.

Here’s all you need to know about these essential skin ingredients and how they work to give you a healthy, glowing skin:

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the skin and a major component of the natural moisturising factor of the dermis, capable of retaining 1000 times its volume in water. The quantity and quality of the NMF contributes to giving skin its plumpness, resiliency and radiance. Hyaluronic Acid also contributes to collagen production as when it naturally breaks down in the skin the remnants are used to help build collagen fibres. Already a big player in your topical skincare, we can now get hyaluronic acid molecule intact to the lower layers using non-invasive mesotherapy infusions.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is not made by our bodies and therefore must be supplied to the skin. It is a water soluble antioxidant, and this means that it can work in almost all the reactions occurring in the cell. 

There is more to vitamin C than the  antioxidant (repair) side. Ascorbic acid is also a cofactor in the production of some amino acids, and it is required for the synthesis of collagen. Collagen is important not only for skin appearance, it is also involved in wound-healing and in preventing bleeding from capillaries.

Vitamin C  provides important protection against damage induced by UV light, improves skin elasticity, decreases wrinkles by stimulating collagen synthesis, reduces redness, promotes wound healing, reduces inflammation and suppresses melanin (dark pigment) synthesis.

dermal infusion of hyaluronic acid and vitamin c results in bullet point - pain free 84 percent increase in absorption non-invasive

Read all about our new SmartMeso Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C Infusions here.

The SmartMeso dermal infusion treatment gets these essential actives deep in the skin layers using electroporation microchip technology, where they can get to work immediately to hydrate and revitalise from the inside out. Each treatment takes about 35 minutes and is quite comfortable to have. You will be a little pink for a few hours afterward and from the next day you will see the results begin to show in softer, more radiant and hydrated skin that glows with vitality.

Perfect Partner:

The best product to keep up your effects at home is the Hydra Collagen Serum from Skin Essentials which, along with many other anti-oxidants, growth factors and hydrating ingredients, contains your daily dose of Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C (in the stabilised MAP format).

Home treatment options for pimples, jawline breakouts or acne

I’m delighted to introduce some new options for treating all types of breakouts – at home!

From occasional pimples, through to persistent jawline or forehead breakouts or even full blown  acne we now have some home treatments available for you to use as a regular deep treatments to keep all types of breakouts under control. These home treatments are intended to act as a booster to your usual homecare products and to keep your breakouts controlled between salon visits.

And we have a very special introductory offer for you too!! 20% Off this month!

Our Skin Script acne products can deep-treat all types of acne from very mild to moderate with a simple home treatment from as little as once to twice per month. Read below to find out how it will work best for your type of breakouts.

Occasional/Monthly Breakouts

If you always get a breakout in the are place in the days before your period then we would recommend using the Glycolic and Retinol Pads on the area prone to breakouts 2-3 times in the week that you usually experience the breakouts. If your spots are more random and tend to be pimples on the surface more so than spots then simply use the Blemish Spot Treatment as needed.

Persistent Jawline / Forehead Breakouts

For those who experience persistent breakouts but only on one part of the face (jawline is the most common but it can be any single area), use the Glycolic Cleanser once per week on the affected area followed by Glycolic and Retinol pad. This is an average usage but you can adjust it over time to suit your skin, as much as twice per week or as little as twice per month depending on your own skin and severity of breakouts. For occasional larger spots use the Blemish Spot Treatment as needed.

Full face/teen acne

We can build you a daily regimen to help control your acne but as a twice-weekly treatment use the Glycolic Cleanser followed by the Glycolic and Retinol Pads.

For everyone

-Always use your home treatment at night and follow with your regular night time routine.

-Patch test all new products on the neck or behind the ear 24 hours before first use.

-Glycolic and retinol can both cause initial dryness, always start with once a week maximum to assess skin tolerance, it can be built up if needed to twice per week. Introduce ONE new product at a time only.

-These home treatments do not replace your regular homecare routine, they are intended as a booster to your daily care.

-Always use SPF daily as a last step in any skincare routine and especially where you are using highly active products that can make your skin more sun-sensitive.

EPM SmartMeso – hydrate, smooth and plump demo video and pics

I’m really excited to share some results of our new EPM SmartMeso treatments with you.

Launching on April 18th (11th for those of you on our VIP launch list, see below), the EPM SmartMeso treatment is all about deep, lasting hydration, plumping and dewy skin. Using a combination of electroporation and nano-needling we can infuse hyaluronic acid and vitamin c deep into the epidermal layers to work on the skin from the inside out.

Results are smoother, brighter, healthy looking skin with results that last much longer than a traditional facial.

On our model we were targeting the lower face in particular (although each treatment is full face, eye area and neck) as that is where she felt she needed some change. The slight creasing around the corners of the mouth were of particular concern to our model, along with general dehydration/dryness/dullness.

After just 2 sessions of the new treatment you can see the fabulous results and changes in the skin, all achieved in a natural way with little downtime.

Before and after 2 treatments

More than a facial, but without the downtime of more intensive procedures, each treatment course is tailored to your needs and can be taken as a single treatment in place of a regular facial for longer-lasting hydration, or as a course to deeply revitalise skin that has become dull, sluggish or neglected for any reason.
