Modular treatments for results AND relaxation

Modular facial treatments for results AND relaxation – micro-personalised for your skin and your preferences, every time.      

At Skin Essentials Wexford Town Clinic we offer our facial treatments in appointments of 30, 45 or 60 minutes.

You choose the time or budget level that suits you best and we will work within that to create the best facial for your skin type and needs on the day.

We map out our facials in modules, each module taking between 15 to 20 minutes to complete.

On average within a 30 minute treatment we choose the most appropriate two modules, in a 45 minute session we incorporate three modules and in a 60 minute treatment we can include four to five. (Cleansing and finishing creams as standard in all treatments).

So what is a module?

Each module is a particular treatment that produces a desired affect either as a standalone treatment or in combination with a complimenting therapy.

Some examples from our extensive menu are are as follows:

  • Exfoliation
  • Manual/machine infusion of actives
  • Tension release facial massage
  • Biodynamic Lymphatic face and neck massage (45/60 minute treatments only)
  • Treatment Mask
  • Extractions
  • Ultrasonic exfoliation or infusion
  • Iontophoresis therapy to lift and/or brighten
  • Viennese massage
  • LED light therapy (45/60 minute treatments only)
  • Hot Stone Shoulder & Neck Massage (45/60 minute treatments only)
  • Microcurrent active penetration
  • Corrective Fruit Enzyme Blends (45/60 minute treatments only)

We work with you on an individual basis to craft the perfect facial for your needs, every time.

The classic Skin Essentials Facial – what makes it so special?

 

Sometimes we can get so caught up in all of the wonderful advanced treatments and technology that is available to us to help us Age Slowly that it’s easy to forget the blissful treatment that is the classic, relaxing facial.

Far from being outdated, at Skin Essentials we keep the classic facial updated with the latest technology to give you maximum results while you rest and relax. It’s why we were a winner of RSVP magazine’s Best Facial!Relaxing Facial image from Skin Essentials by Mariga, Wexford

Benefits of a Skin Essentials classic facial:

-Deep cleansing prevents and treats congestion, getting rid of any ‘bumpy’ feeling under the skin.
-Acid or enzyme treatments helps rebalance any water/oil movement issues, tackling dehydration, patchiness and rough texture.
-Massage increases circulation, reducing puffiness, increasing nutrient exchange and oxygenation of the skin tissues for brightness, radiance and sharper contours.
-Masks calm, nourish and ‘settle’ the skin’s pH, restoring comfort and suppleness
-Pampering and relaxation promote an all over deep feeling of relaxation and wellbeing..
-When you treat your skin with regular facials, we can keep any historical issues in check, while preventing seasonal changes such as dehydration or sensitivity and dramatically slow the formation of lines, wrinkles and pigmentation.

How often should you have a facial?
Ideally, every 4-6 weeks for maximum effect but no less than one every three months to balance seasonal changes. If you go beyond three months you are losing the maintenance effect of your facial and reverting to corrective treatments, effectively treating symptoms and effects instead of maintaining constant balance.

What special about a Skin Essentials facial?
-All of our 45 and 60 minute facials include a blissful, relaxing hot stone neck, shoulder and décolleté massage.
-Warm blankets, low level lighting (or just candlelight if you prefer) and the patented ‘comfy client’ memory foam ergonomic treatment bed ensure complete comfort.    

  -We will never leave the room during your treatment, if you pay for 60 minute treatment, you get 60 minutes of continuous treatment!
-Prefer low, loud, or no music? Let us know, we will adjust it for you.
-Choose the heat level of the room to suit your comfort preferences.    

  -Advanced modalities ‘push’ active compounds deep into the epidermis, giving longer-lasting results than a spa-type facial.    

  -Our therapists are all from multi-discipline backgrounds and have education and experience in scientific skincare, various holistic therapies as well as cosmeceutical treatments, so can tailor a treatment to suit your exact skin needs, as well as customising healing therapy during each appointment.

Keeping it simple – top anti-ageing products and treatments

Mariga’s quick tips for younger skin

Skin Essentials banner image, facial with the words specialists in non-invasive anti-ageing skincare. you. Younger. Naturally

Anti-ageing doesn’t need to be complicated or confusing. It can be hard to figure out the many types of anti-ageing treatment, products and ingredients that we are constantly bombarded with on social media, magazines, tv etc. From snails to stem cells, vampire facials to baby botox, there is a never-ending stream of “the next big thing” in anti-ageing. If you are overwhelmed with choice, bewildered by conflicting advice and unsure of what’s really necessary, this blog is for you. Below I have outlined the basics of sensible, proven anti-ageing treatments and products that are all you will need to see a visible difference in your skin. If non-invasive anti-ageing is your thing (we deal in ‘fresh not frozen’ outcomes) then read on! These are my top 3 in treatments and products for a younger complexion on all skin types.

Prefer your info in video format? Scroll to the bottom 🙂

Treatments top three:

  1. Microneedling – delay and reverse visible signs of ageing. This is the ultimate non-surgical treatment for giving you a youthful look that is fresh – not frozen. For those who want subtle yet visible revision of lines and laxity. Results are gradual and permanent. Fantastic also as a time-delay treatments for pre-ageing clients.
  2. LED light therapy. Powerful, natural, non-invasive and customisable. Stimulates collagen, gives a revitalised softness and glow back to your skin. Add-on to your facial to supercharge results or have a course for a deep skin re-boot on skin that has been neglected or over-exposed to the sun. I have been using LED therapy on my clients for over ten years now and it shows in their skin!
  3. Facial Massage. This old-school treatment will always have a place in our customised facials. A targeted, personalised facial massage is far more than just rubbing lotions into your skin. In the right hands it is a stand-alone anti-ageing tool that increases the availability of nutrition to the skin cells, stimulates lymph flow for sharper contours, releases muscle tension from the face, eyes and shoulders. Our therapists are trained in many types of massage so that we can tailor the best one for you. Examples are sculpting and lifting massage to give a more wide-awake and fresh look to the face and eyes, lymphatic drainage to reduce puffiness or pressure point manipulation to relieve tension. And of course whatever method we choose for your facial, it’s blissful to receive!

Products top three:

  1. Gentle cleanser and SPF30 moisturiser are your basic core products in any skincare routine. Without a thorough, yet gentle, cleanse, your following products will not work to their full effectiveness. And, of course, we all know that prevention is better than cure, so SPF30 daily moisturiser is a must-have. From the Skin Essentials range look for Skin Comfort Cleanser and SPF30 Day Cream.
  2. Serum. If you have not yet started using serum then it is time to make the change! Well-formulated serums can deliver targeted actives much deeper than your treatment cream and deliver visible results over time. There are serums for all ages and skin requirements but from an anti-ageing point of view the number one ingredient to use is Vitamin A, the global gold-standard in effective anti-ageing. This ingredient is vital for skin health and function and will keep cellular turnover at optimum levels, giving you brighter, clearer skin with less congestion, diminished lines and a more even colour and texture. Choose the correct serum for your skin type then add a vitamin A serum at night for anti-ageing power on every skin type. From the Skin Essentials range look at Age Slowly Serum.
  3. Treatment Cream. Far more than a ‘moisturiser’, your chosen cream should supply nutrition, hydration and anti-oxidants at a minimum, then ideally you should be able to choose one that also has active ingredients for your skin’s particular needs. Ingredients to look out for: hyaluronic acid, plant butters, seed oils. Try to use creams that do not have silicone in the first few ingredients on the label as a general rule. For example: our Skin Comfort Cream is a fantastic universal cream for normal-dry skin types that will also provide multi-anti-oxidants, plant sterols to deeply moisturise and calm redness, all facilitating an environment where skin cells can function to their capacity, giving you a much slower ageing

New – InfusION+ Therapy – a powerful add-on to your regular facial

NEW! InfusION+ therapy

We have introduced a new element to our bespoke facials here at Skin Essentials by Mariga, Wexford. You know we are always searching out the latest and best technology and ingredients to bring you the absolute maximum clinical results from your treatments 🙂

We can now incorporate the power of ION+ therapy into your facial. Choose from VitalfusION+ to brighten, revitalise and smooth a dull or sluggish skin, or LiftfusION+ for a tightening and radiance effect perfect before a big event when you want some extra wow factor for your skin! ION+ therapy will be used as part of your bespoke treatment when appropriate or you can specifically request it if you have an occasion coming up, be sure to let your therapist know! We do not charge extra for this powerful booster treatment – it is included in the regular price of your bespoke facial.

Ion therapy can also be taken in a series to deeply revitalise skin that has been neglected, or to delay the first signs of ageing when fine lines start to appear. It is also a great maintenance treatment between microneedling courses for maintaining skin texture, health and vitality.

Suitable for all skin types and issues as it is adapted for each client, the ION+ therapy is a universal facial. As it utilises a galvanic electric current to open channels in the skin to allow for deep active product penetration (it doesn’t hurt, it’s actually very relaxing), it is not suitable during pregnancy, for those with diabetes, epilepsy, or anyone with a lot of metal in their body such as plates or pins. (Fillings are ok).

 

LED light therapy – the best facial you can give your skin.

LED light therapy has got to be the most versatile treatment modality available now in advanced skin clinics. It is natural, safe, can be used by every skin type and the results we are seeing here at Skin Essentials by Mariga are fantastic. Our clients are experiencing deep skin rejuvenation giving them brighter, radiant, tighter skin that looks and acts years younger. It is also priced to be accessible to everyone, making it an ideal treatment for those on a budget or to have if you are saving up for advanced anti-wrinkle or scar reduction using microneedling. It will improve the skins appearance and strength and also prep the skin for even better results from advanced correction treatments. To make it even better value for you, we have created the Celluma Club (limited to 10 people per month). See the video for details or continue reading below…

Join our LED Celluma Club!

As the effects of the Celluma LED are cumulative, the ideal way to use it at the beginning is as often as possible! The machine can be used every day for 30 minutes and after the first month a maintenance programme of once a week is ideal.

To help you get the most from your biophototherapy treatments with us our experts have created the Celluma Club. Unlimited sessions of the Celluma treatment for 1 month for an amazing €200! Remember, it is usually €40 for a single light treatment. Fantastic for first time anti-ageing clients who want to dramatically accelerate the results of their new skincare programme. A must-do for acne too. Continue reading
