Frown lines annoying you? We have a needle-free solution you will love!

Are you concerned with frown lines or lip lines?

Thinking about anti-wrinkle injections or fillers but worried if it’s right for you?

We have the answer for you!

Exclusive to Skin Essentials by Mariga in Wexford is a revolutionary wrinkle revision solution:

NEEDLE-FREE HYDROPORATION

Hydroporation uses compressed air to blast hyaluronic acid through your pores and into the lower levels of the epidermis, plumping out lines by penetrating the spaces between skin cells that have gotten ‘stuck’ together from lack of hyaluronic acid, which depletes as we age.

Hydroporation is the quick, simple and natural alternative to invasive injections. The fluid introduced into the skin is hyaluronic acid, a natural component of your skin’s own moisturising system.

As hyaluronic acid is native to the skin, it is readily accepted into the epidermis and mixes with your own extra-cellular fluids to re-create the cushioning between the cells that gives you a plumper, revitalised, smoother surface to the skin.

Available from Skin Essentials in its original format for plumping lip lines for some time now, we are excited to launch two great new innovations from the parent company exclusively to our clients that we know you will love.

And of course the regional great formula for softening lip lines is still available too!

So, what’s new?

  1. Hydroporation is now available in a treatment for frown lines. Finally a solution for those ’11’ lines between the eyebrows that doesn’t require needles! (see video below).
  2. New cross-linked hyaluronic acid fluid is now available for those who have already tried and liked the original formula. This new formula breaks down more slowly in the skin and therefore gives a longer-lasting result.
    1. Perfect for those who are happy with their current results and want to make them longer-lasting. As an average, if you are getting 3-4 months out of your current hydroporation shots, you can expect to increase that to 6-8 months with the new fluid!

Pricing:

  • Original fluid – €25 per shot
  • New cross-linked formula: €35 per shot

How many shots will you need?

That completely depends on the current condition and hydration of your skin.

As an average, upper lip needs 4 shots, one lines between the brows needs an average of 2 shots. Initially a course of 3 over 6 weeks is performed, then top-ups of a single session every few months depending on which fluid is used and how well you take care of your skin at home!

An outline of a proposed course of treatment is given along with prices at your initial complementary consultation.

We highly recommend this natural alternative to injectables and it is one of Mariga’s top requested treatments. Book your consultation now on 053 9145981 and see what it can do for you!

Perfect Party Prep Skin Treatments

Party prep your skin!

When it comes to pre-party skin treatments you need 3 things:

  1. A quick treatment…

  2. With minimal downtime…

  3. Plus maximum skin boosting results.

When your social diary is full, you need to look your best, fast!

At the same time, late nights, extra rich food / alcohol intake and hectic schedules gang up on you to make you look tired, dull or blotchy.

  christmas drinks, party season, skincare

The answer? Deep boosting skin treatments that can be done quickly to get you back to your best.

We recommend the following:

  • SmartMeso Dermal Infusion – Using nano-needling to deliver hyaluronic acid and vitamin C deep into the epidermal structure, this will give you brightness, deep hydration and healthy glow, fast.
    • Downtime is just an hour or so of pink/tingly skin. Ideally, have this one a day or two before a big event to give the ingredients time to activate fully in your skin.

  • LipofirmMed – Using Tripollar Radio Frequency to heat the deep tissues, stimulating tightening of collagen fibres, and DMA technology to sculpt the jawline, this will give you instant results on skin radiance and facial contouring.
    • You can have this one from a few days before right up to the day of an event as there is no downtime at all.

Make your own face mask at home

Do you feel like your skin needs an extra something as we transition into the cooler months?

Maybe you have already started switching on the central heating or lighting the fire and your skin feels a little more dry than usual?

This is the perfect time to book a skin treatment to re-balance your skin and stop any issues such as dryness or dehydration that are beginning to creep in.

Remember, the earlier you address any skin changes the easier it will be to get your skin back to its best.

But maybe you can’t get to us right now and need something at home to tide you over?

Most people will feel like using a face mask to deeply hydrate or restore the comfortable feeling to their skin….but Skin Essentials don’t have a mask for sale?!?

What to use…..

Don’t worry, you already have all the ingredients you need at home in your daily Skin Essentials products to create your own prescription mask – here’s how:

You will need

face mask, home skincare, skin essentials by mariga, wexford, hydrating skincare, dry skin   face mask, home skincare, skin essentials by mariga, wexford, hydrating skincare, dry skin

In your hand, simply mix two pumps of your cream and one pump each of your water based serum and oil based serum and add a pea sized amount of Vaseline (this will ‘seal in’ all the other ingredients).

Massage into clean, dry skin – including eye contour area – and leave overnight. Wake up to soft, hydrated skin!

Tip: To make this an even deeper treatment, prep the skin first using Enzyme Exfoliator for 10 minutes, remove and continue to mask stage.

Acne scarring dramatically reduced – amazing results

I am incredibly excited to show you the results of our new acne scar revision treatments!

These fantastic before and after images are the first in Ireland from this new technology –

The Pyramid Facelift by Divine Pro is available exclusively from Skin Essentials by Mariga in Wexford, and now in our monthly pop-up clinic in Dublin.

We want to share our very own before and after images with you as the results are fantastic from our Wexford clinic.

Taken six months apart, these images are of a young male client who has undergone a course of Pyramid Facelift Treatments with us here at Skin Essentials by Mariga.

Although these fantastic results are taken immediately before and two months after the scar revision treatment, it is worth noting that this client was already compliant with a great homecare routine to control breakouts and strengthen the skin and had previous skin treatments with us.

It is for this reason that we were able to get such fantastic results with only 3 treatments.

The better condition your skin is in before these advanced technologies are used, the better your results will be.

For this reason, we do a comprehensive consultation before deciding on any treatment path and will wait until the skin is in the best possible place before going in with the big guns! For some that may be days, weeks or even months but it will be exactly what is right to give your skin the best result.

We have programmes for all types of acne scarring from red, flat post-inflammatory lesions, through to deeper indented scarring and will create a personalised programme exactly for your needs.

Schedule your scar revision consultation with us at Skin Essentials by Mariga in Wexford Town by calling us on 053 9145981. The initial consultation is €25 and is redeemable against your first treatment. This consultation will allow us to determine suitability for advanced treatments.

We are exclusive stockists of this Divine Pro technology in the South East, you won’t get this anywhere else!

Up to now, this type of acne scarring did not have a non-surgical solution, and even the medical treatments offered were quite daunting, including deep medical-grade peels and dermabrasion requiring significant downtime so that makes us extra excited to be able to offer treatments with little to no impact on your day-to-day life.

Most experience just a few hours of redness and heat in the face after each treatment.

Do you want to find out more or check your suitability for this treatment? Call us on 053 9145981 to set up your appointment or book online for Wexford and our monthly Dublin pop-up clinic.

Which microneedling is right for you?

I absolutely love microneedling and incorporate it into almost all our anti-ageing programmes both in our Wexford base and our Dublin pop up clinics.

There are many types for different levels of outcome,

But in general terms I have outlined the differences below and tried to give a best example of what skin concern each is best for:

microneedling, skin essentials by mariga, wexford, antiageing

  • Classic microneedling (Bio therapeutic Microneedling on our website) Excellent as a single treatment as a pre-ageing advanced facial to build collagen as a future-proofing method. Take in a course of 3 spaced a month apart for correction when you already have early signs of ageing such as first eye lines etc.
  • Trifractional Resurfacing: Combines shallow needling with radiofrequency energy. Best for first lines, pores, texture issues. Fantastic for resurfacing and revealing a smooth, glowing radiant skin. A great option to jump-start the skin after a period of neglect, or when starting a new skin regime. Results from a single session, take a course for deeper issues.
  • Voluderm Facelift: Combines deeper needling with radiofrequency energy. Best to address hollows under the eyes, softness around the mouth and to re-volumise cheeks for a youthful look. Best in a course of 3.
  • SmartMeso Nano Needling: Combines shallow needling with vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid Infusion. Best for dull, congested skin that needs a boost. Have this in place of, or combined with, your regular facial 3-4 times per year for deep, deep skin hydration and cellular energy.

We use the above in a bespoke single-treatment, combination or series to address each client’s concerns, time availability and budget. 

Note: You may sometimes see microneedling described as ‘medical microneedling’ or ‘surgical microneedling’. These terms describe a much deeper type of needling that is performed by a doctor, or surgeon, and is a very different treatment, although the terms are often misused by salons or cosmetic clinics who perhaps don’t really have the advanced expertise to know the difference.

Some advanced types of medical/surgical needling even require a general anesthetic! Don’t worry though, you will get amazing results from cosmetic grade needling on all signs of ageing, wrinkles, scars and lax skin.

The previously mentioned options are usually used for very deep scarring or other skin conditions that involve the underlying structures and are strictly for the plastic surgeon’s office.

Antioxidant Facials – Perfect For September

After the summer season,

I always recommend having an anti-oxidant-rich facial to help your skin repair itself from the extra UV exposure built up over the summer months.

Increased exposure to UV light (it doesn’t have to be hot, or even warm, just not dark 😂) speeds up the rate at which collagen fibres are broken down in the skin structure.

antioxidant facial, antioxidant skincare, facial treatments, wexford, skin essentials by mariga

Decreased collagen leads to the visible signs of ageing that we all want to delay as long as possible – wrinkles, lines, increased pigmentation, bumpy texture and enlarged pores.

Luckily, anti-oxidants are Mother Nature’s antidote to decreasing collagen quality. Our bodies already produce our own anti-oxidants at cellular level to repair damage to our cells but, like everything, the availability of these natural resources slows down as we age. 

Supplementing your intrinsic supply of anti-oxidants with your daily skincare will keep things ticking over nicely for you, and adding a deep boosting anti-oxidant repair facial when necessary will recharge your skin’s ability to battle UV-induced damage. 

(Skin Essentials homecare products are ALL high in anti-oxidants. Specifically for anti-ageing and tackling UV ageing, use Hydra Collagen Serum daily under SPF30 and Lipid Repair Concentrate at night).

Even if you use SPF daily and liberally, your cells will still experience a surge of UV induced oxidation just from the longer hours of daylight.

Top antioxidant facials at Skin Essentials by Mariga:

  • We can adapt any or our 45 minute customised facials to supply the maximum amount of anti-oxidant repairing ingredients to the epidermis, leaving you hydrated and glowing.
  • For deeper repair choose our SmartMeso Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C which infuses hydrating and anti-oxidant molecules deeper into the epidermis than a facial alone.
  • Combine the two above in our Deluxe Dermal Infusion; all the deep repair of the SmartMeso plus the surface conditioning, multi-antioxidant cocktail and relaxation of our customised facial.
