Microneedling demo – watch me have the treatment done

Microneedling is our most requested treatment here at Skin Essentials by Mariga. It is also the one most people have questions about or don’t fully understand. I blame incorrect information on the internet for this – mostly for the idea that microneedling causes bleeding or is extremely invasive with a lot of downtime. In fact, bleeding is rare and isolated to areas where we have to work deeper due to scars. Needling for wrinkles, lines and age prevention is relatively non-invasive and much more comfortable than you would imagine. In the three minute video below you can see a snippet of me having the treatment done and get an idea of how easy it really is!

Microneedling is natural, safe, proven, suitable for almost everybody and my personal favourite Age Slowly treatment. Combine it with great, personalised homecare and regular maintenance facials for the ultimate in anti-ageing skincare. All our needling treatments include LED for an added boost of power and a relaxing treat after the microneedling.

Lumps, bumps and discolourations, we can help!

Did you know that many of the annoying little skin anomalies that pop up over time on your face, hands and body can usually be very quickly and easily treated or removed, often in a single session?

One of the most satisfying parts of my job is taking care of age spots, skin tags, red veins and milia. In fact, I do all the lesion removal services in the clinic myself, that’s how much I love it!

We offer both cryotherapy (cold) lesion removal and electro desiccation (heat) methods of removal to ensure that you are getting the exact best treatment for your needs. A quick consultation determines the type and number of treatments that are the best fit for you. All of our treatments are non-invasive, meaning we work only in the upper layers of the epidermis. Both diathermy and cryotherapy are natural treatments using heat or cold energy that does not scar or damage surrounding healthy tissue.

Here are some of the blemishes that can be treated:

Red veins on the face – treated with diathermy. These tiny, visible veins respond very well to treatment and smaller ones will disappear in just one session. Larger or more extensive veins will need up to three sessions taken six weeks apart.

Skin tags: from the tiny ones on the neck to large individual tags anywhere on the body, these are very simple to treat, usually requiring just one session of either diathermy for the little ones or cryo for the bigger tags.

Milia: very successfully treated with diathermy, one session for small ones, follow up treatment needed for larger or more extensive milia issues.

What cannot be treated?
We cannot treat anything that is deeper-rooted in the skin, beneath the epidermis such as moles, or flaky, recurring or weeping patches of skin. These need to be seen by a doctor.

Can I help you with any of the above? or maybe you have a spot that you are not sure if it fits in to any of the above categories? Just give me a call on 053 9145981 or pop in to our skin clinic, Skin Essentials by Mariga, in Selskar, Wexford Town and I will be happy to advise you.

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

Bio Therapeutic Needling – Worldwide Exclusive at Skin Essentials

Skin Essentials bring you the future of skincare, NOW.

The next generation of microneedling is here, first and exclusive!!

Bio Therapeutic Needling is an integrated facial therapy combining the best of biochemistry and technology in a regenerating treatment to tighten, firm and contour facial skin while dramatically reducing lines and acne scars.

By uniting the power of two proven protocols – automated microneeding and biophoto therapy –  we bring the principles of corneotherapy to bear on the science of biotechnology, giving you results that are so much more than the sum of the two individual therapies.

What’s in it for you?

-Younger looking, visibly firmer skin

-Progressive, lasting results

-Dramatic reduction in wrinkles and acne scarring

Who is it not suitable for?

Because Bio Therapeutic Needling is a therapy that uses the skin’s own resources rather than introducing foreign materials into the skin, it is an almost universal treatment. However, if you are diabetic, haemophiliac, or otherwise have a compromised immune system this is not for you. Note: wrinkles caused by glycation will not respond to this treatment. This is relatively rare and is determined at your initial consultation before you embark on a course of treatment.

LED therapy for acne and anti ageing.

The hottest trend right now in skin therapy is LED Biophotonic Therapy.

lighttherapychart.png-2080x0

At Skin Essentials, we have been in on this technology right from the beginning as we could see the potential for fantastic results on many skin issues in a non-invasive manner. We have been offering LED as part of our skincare treatments for 10 years now! As always, we are trend setters, not followers when it comes to finding the very best for your skin.

Over that time we have used several machines and become expert in lightwave technology! This experience has brought us to what we know to be the very best aesthetic LED machine on the market – the Celluma. We are proud to have been the first clinic in Europe to offer this first class machine to our clients and in fact it is so popular we have two available in our treatment rooms to keep up with demand.

What does LED do for your skin?

LED Biophotonic therapy is a light-based non-invasive treatment used to treat the signs of ageing in facial skin and also used in the treatment of acne.
LED Biophotonic Therapy works deep in the cellular structure of the skin in a non-invasive manner to promote collagen production, reduce redness, reduce lines and fight bacteria, giving you smoother, brighter, plumper skin with fewer blemishes. Skin is brighter, firmer with visibly reduced lines and smoother contours. You look fresher and more ‘awake’.

LED uses a technology first developed by NASA to help with wound healing in space.
It’s aesthetic application uses the device to deliver light deep into skin tissue to promote growth.
The mitochondria (energy components) of the cell are stimulated, colour-sensitive chemicals are activated, skin cells are re-energised and collagen production boosted.

Why did we choose the Celluma over all the other devices available?

The Celluma machine’s unique application of the technology (slower, longer pulses in a mouldable panel) allows for the most powerful effect, combining multiple wavelengths of blue, red and infra red light in the same session to give your skin a power super-boost in a very relaxing treatment. Of all the machines that we have used, and researched, it has the most research data, FDA clearances and industry awards.

Biophotonic therapy can be used as a stand-alone treatment when taken in a series for anti-ageing or acne, or a single session can be added on to your prescribed facial or peel treatment to supercharge your results. It is an integral part of our microneedling treatment, speeding and boosting results.

As the light waves are working on a deep, cellular level you will find that positive changes in your skin’s appearance continue to occur for weeks and months after your initial course. These can be enhanced by monthly single-session top-ups and use of the correct skincare for your skin’s needs.
Pricing:
Single 30 minute session €40
Join our Celluma Club – monthly unlimited access to the Celluma for a single payment of €250. Fantastic to begin an anti-ageing routine or deeply boost a new acne clearing routine. Ideal usage is three times per week, but you can have more if you wish, some clients enjoy the relaxing benefits of Celluma so much that they come in every day on their lunch break during the month of their Celluma Club course.

Further information:

Technology developed by NASA using light emitting diodes (LED) has been scientifically proven by many recent clinical trials to re-regulate cellular function in the treatment of many common conditions, restoring the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Contrasted to many widely accepted therapies where vital tissue is intentionally damaged to create a healing response, using LED light to “re-energize” cellular function in a non-invasive manner allows the body to maintain vitality as nature intended. “LED reacts with cytochromes in the body,” explains Dr. Harry Whelan, professor of pediatric neurology and director of hyperbaric medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin. “Cytochromes are the parts of cells that respond to light and color. When cytochromes are activated, their energy levels go up, and that stimulates tissue growth and regeneration.”1
