Skin consultation or analysis – which is right for you?

What is a skin consultation and how is it different from a skin analysis?

We offer two very distinct options for our first-time clients. You can have a skin consultation or you can have a skin analysis.

So how do you know which you need?

A consultation is used to determine the answer to one question. For example, you might have a blemish such as pigmentation patch or some milia and would like to know if and how we can treat that for you.

Another type of consultation is to have one of our professionals assess your skin in order to match you to the correct Skin Essentials home-care products for your skin’s needs. These are quick consultations for our therapists to perform and are free of charge.

A skin analysis on the other hand is an in-depth look at the past history of all influences on your skin, such as medical, genetic, cosmetic and lifestyle factors, along with examining your skin under various scopes and taking digital readings of various markers in the skin structure to determine why your skin is presenting the way it is today.

This analysis is used to develop a plan of action including clinical treatment, lifestyle changes and home-care in order to correct a skin condition or multiple conditions such as premature ageing, skin inflammation, rosacea, acne breakouts or general sluggish, dysfunctional skin.

Do you:

  • Have a specific question about a lesion, skin condition or treatment?
  • Wonder if a particular treatment is suitable for your skin concern?
  • Have a medical condition that you think might make you unsuitable to a treatment or product?
  • Then just pop in to us for a 5-10 minute chat and we will be happy to advise you on the next steps to take.

You don’t need an appointment on weekdays to pop in for quick chat but on Saturdays you do! We are always happy to answer a question for you and there is no charge for dropping in to ask us anything!

Do you:

  • Have no particular skin problems but want to start with preventative anti-ageing
  • Want to start a new skincare routine for general skin health skin but don’t know what you should be using.
  • Then just call us to arrange a free-of-charge product matching service, where we will examine your skin, take a brief medical overview to determine contra-indications and prepare a recommended home-care regime for your needs. This takes just 15 minutes and in done in the privacy of one of our consultation rooms.

Do you:

  • Have problematic skin that is never ‘just right’
  • Tend to react to products or treatment
  • Find yourself ageing suddenly or having any other sudden change in the overall appearance of your skin
  • Suffer from rosacea, acne or overly sensitive skin
  • Have acne scarring

Then you need a skin analysis to determine why this is happening so that we can catch triggers at their source to effect real change in the skin’s behaviour and appearance, not just treat symptoms as they appear which only gives short-term results.

Online Assessments

We also offer online assessments which combine elements of consultation/analysis. Along with determining skin type, condition, unique triggers and your concerns, we use a precise questionnaire to create a digital profile.

These answers are combined with photo assessment and follow-up calls or emails to craft a bespoke homecare plan to address your skin needs and concerns.

Mariga pioneered this unique online skin clinic and Skin Essentials were the first in Europe to bring this service to distance clients who we have been successfully treating since 2010. Cost €65.

Age Slowly – The Skin Essentials by Mariga way.

The Skin Essentials Age Slowly concept explained:

At Skin Essentials our mission is to help everybody age at the slowest possible rate.
It is not possible to halt the hands of time, but they can certainly be slowed!

Our speciality is non-invasive anti-ageing. That is to say, we work WITH the skin to keep it behaving, and looking, younger.

We are lucky to live in a time where science and technology are advanced to such a degree that we have a full understanding of the microscopic workings of the skin at a sub-cellular level.
We know what a fully functioning, young, healthy skin cells needs to perform at optimum level.
We know what ingredients, processes and foods boost cell function, and those which hinder it.

We can analyse every unique skin, with it’s unique set of influences, internal, external and genetic. We can then determine exactly what that skin needs to resume working as it did when it was young. Science has already harnessed the ingredient and treatment technology needed to treat skin cell slowdown.

What does this mean for you?
At skin Essentials by Mariga we have the education, technology and scientifically blended products to create a bespoke Age Slowly plan for your exact needs. We find where the weak spots are and address them, restoring youthful energy to your skin.

What do you need to do?
Simply book in for one of our Age Slowly skin consultations, where one of our expert Skin Diagnostic Technicians will investigate, measure and analyse your skins current condition and formulate a plan for recovery.

Call us on 053 9145981 to make your appointment or book online here.

Note: We are a specialist NON INVASIVE anti-ageing clinic. We believe in restoring skins youthfulness and performance using proven bio-identical ingredients and natural but powerful treatments such as micro needling and cryotherapy. Our happy clients are proof that you do not have to resort to injectables or surgery to regain a youthful complexion.
We do not use invasive procedures such as botox or fillers. If this is a path you wish to explore we recommend that you research and contact a reputable medical aesthetic/cosmetic surgery clinic to discuss your options.

What’s your type?

What’s your type?

Do you find it difficult to choose a skincare product off the shelf ? There are so many, all claiming to be THE ONE that it’s no wonder the consumer is confused. After all, how are you supposed to know which new amazing-sounding high tech ingredient or ”new” plant extract is going to clear up that flaky patch on your chin or stop your make-up from sliding off your face an hour after you applied it? In an effort to categorise the products into something you might relate to yourself, most mass market companies divide their offerings into ”skin type”. You will see these as the words dry, dehydrated, combination, oily, normal, mature, sensitive, blemish-prone, delicate, fragile etc. etc.

Clear? I thought not!

In reality there are only three basic skin types that everyone will fall into to some degree: Lipid Dry, Oily and Permanent Diffuse Redness (ref: Florence Barrett-Hill, Advanced Skin Analysis).
The rest are just marketing terms and have nothing to do with the skin type that you are born with. ”But I have dry cheeks and an oily T-zone, isn’t that combination skin?” I hear you say. Well, yes and no. You may well be suffering from an imbalance in your skin that is causing these symptoms, but this is a curable condition, not your basic skin type. Often, these skin conditions are caused by ongoing use of the incorrect products for your basic skin type.

How do you know which one you are? If you have very oily or very red skin then it’s easy but most people won’t be an extreme version of any type so to get an accurate analysis you must be diagnosed by a skincare professional. This will involve examining your skin under strong light and magnification, taking a detailed history of your skin, lifestyle, diet, medical history, cosmetic history and using a diagnostic device such as a skin scanner. A comprehensive skin analysis will take at least one hour. You will come away with a full understanding of your skin, what has been wrong in the past, how to treat it and which products to use going forward. Your basic majority skin type will be explained, any current skin conditions addressed and questions answered. This detailed consultation is the only way to truly understand your skin and means that your clinical treatment and homecare regime will be completely personalised for a real, long-term solution.
