Mother Of The Bride 2019

Are you a Mother of the Bride or Groom in 2019?

Huge congratulations if you are going to be Mother of the Bride/Groom this year!

There are exciting times ahead as you help your sons and daughters organise their big day, but we understand its a big day for you too and you want to look your best and feel confident in your skin (and in the photos!)

Here are my top treatment recommendations for being photo-ready and confident mother of the bride or groom this year:

  • It’s never too early to start, particularly if you want to reduce lines. Some therapies need weeks and even months to show full results, especially on firming contours and reducing wrinkles. Give us a call as soon as the date is set and we will work out a plan for you.
  • Left it until the last minute? Don’t worry, we can still shave a few years off, at this stage we focus on temporary rejuvenation to get you camera-ready.
  • Be consistent, using your recommended skincare at home daily, drinking water and eating well every day will reward you with radiant skin and bright eyes for the wedding day and beyond.
  • As a general guide, you need 3-6 months for wrinkle reduction, skin tightening and lifting, 6+ weeks for removing brown patches, red veins, milia or skin tags, 6+ weeks for superficial rejuvenation, skin smoothing and brightening.

What can we do to refresh, rejuvenate and turn back the clock for you?

Here are some different options depending on how much revision you would like to achieve, how much time you have to prepare and of course how committed you are to achieving results.

Rewind with Divine Pro

Choose this when you want serious long-lasting wrinkle revision, skin tightening and scar reduction and have at least 3 months until the wedding.

We have options for every level of age revision from first fine lines to dramatic lifting and tightening.

What will it do for your skin?

  • Dramatic lifting results on wrinkles and sagging skin
  • Eye contours tightened, reduce crows feet
  • Jawline contoured
  • Cheeks and mouth area re-volumised
  • Amazing results on acne scarring – even old scars
  • Neck lifted and tightened
  • Double chin tightened
  • Pores Reduced
  • Visible, lasting results without surgery or injectables

Skin Peels

If you just need some superficial brightening and softening of the skin, enzyme or acid peels are the perfect choice for you. More than a facial, but still very gentle. 

A series of skin peels will refresh your look, hydrating, plumping and smoothing the skin. A minimum of three peels spaced one week apart is optimum, ending one or two weeks before the wedding.

What results can you expect?

  • Brighter skin
  • Smoother skin
  • Diminished lines
  • Evening out of skin colour
  • Makeup applies easily and beautifully

Cost: from €50 per treatment

LipoFirmMed Skin Tightening

New for Summer 2019 – LipoFirmMed Skin Tightening

This facial rejuvenation skin tightening treatment is ideal for those looking to boost their collagen production , hydrate deeply and smooth the first appearance of lines.

You may be familiar with or already experienced our TriPollar Radiofrequency Skin Tightening – well now meet it’s big sister – LipoFirmMed. Double the intensity and with added Deep Muscle Activation for extra jawline tightening!

This course of treatment is performed all over the face, eye contours and neck for visible results such as tighter jawline and eye area contours, neck lines are beautifully smoothed, and an over all lifted and brightened appearance to the skin.

DMA (Dynamic Muscle Activation) is a non-invasive skin tightening and lifting treatment which contributes to a firmer and more youthful-looking face. The deep electrical stimulation of the facial muscles enables you to achieve a beautifully-defined V-shaped silhouette, noticeable from the first treatment.
The combined technologies work both internally and externally as a synergistic skin and muscle treatment which stimulates the contraction of SMAS (Superficial muscular aponeurotic system) in the face. This results in tightening of the skin and re-energising the skin’s collagen.

TriPollar is a 3rd-generation non-invasive RF anti-aging technology that rejuvenates the skin and effectively treats wrinkles, including fine lines around the lips and eyes. An immediate, long-lasting skin tightening effect is achieved from the first treatment.
The TriPollar technology is based on focused RF energy that heats the dermis, while sophisticated algorithms ensure that the epidermis remains unharmed. The heat causes collagen fibers to contract and stimulates the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. This results in immediate skin tightening and smoothing, and the appearance of younger, glowing skin.

This is a very comfortable treatment to receive and takes just 30 minutes per session, taken weekly. A course of 6 will give maximum results which will last up to 2 years. There is very little downtime with this facial treatment, just some red/pink colour in the treated areas for a couple of hours.

LipoFirmMed is perfect for those who want visible, lasting results but do not want or do not need the added wrinkle reduction and resurfacing of the more intensive Pyramid Facelift treatment. Choose this one when sagging or creepy skin is your main concern. Especially effective on the neck!

Skin Essentials by Mariga is proud to be the first clinic in Ireland to offer this treatment. Please call us on 053 9145981 for more details or book online now.

A consultation will be required before embarking on any new course of treatment. This will take just 10 minutes and is free of charge. Radiofrequency is not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding mums, those with severe cardiac conditions, epilepsy, diabetes or pacemakers.

Launching: 27th June 2019

Price: Single treatment €125 / Course of 6 pre-paid normally €600 / Summer 2019 Intro Special Course of 6 pre-paid €500

Option 2:

Rewind with microneedling: choose this when you want serious long-lasting wrinkle lessening, skin tightening and scar reduction and have at least 6 months before the wedding.

Clinical Microneedling has become the international gold standard in non-surgical skin revision for wrinkles and acne scars over the last few years, with numerous clinical studies and thousands of satisfied clients backing up the science of collagen induction therapy.
At Skin Essentials we have integrated the precision Swiss technology of the Dr. Dermic automated needling machine with our exclusive state of the art Bio Phototherapy skin modulation device to bring you the future of skincare – NOW.
This precision process creates new collagen fibres which build over time to give positive and visible changes from deep in the skin’s layers. Skin will be tightened, smoother, wrinkles reduced, and scars reduced.

Option 4.
Plump out lip lines with hydroporation: choose this when you haven’t the time before the wedding to wait for microneedling results.

Hydroporation is a method of introducing skin-loving hyaluronic acid into the deeper layers of the epidermis without needles.
It is applied directly beneath deep lines around the lips or downturned corners of the mouth to fill and plump them fast! A course of 3 is needed to full results, taken 2 weeks apart. This is a fantastic way to dramatically look refreshed and rejuvenated without aesthetic surgery or fillers. The results will last up to six months and can be topped up if you wish, or it will just gradually break down over the months and return to normal.
