Serum Vs. Moisturiser?

We get asked this age old question frequently:

What is the difference between a serum and a moisturiser?

It’s really not an either/or situation, they do two very different things for the skin.

Serum

A serum has a thinner consistency that contains a higher percentage of active ingredients in it. We want those active ingredients delivered deep down into the skin and that is why a serum comes in that thinner consistency.

So in a nutshell, a serum delivers deep down into the skins layers to do corrective work where its needed.

Moisturiser

Where as a moisturiser concentrates much more on the superficial layers of the skin which is all about protection, repair, replenishing and conditioning the skin on the very surface level.

Make sense?

Collagen Glow Facial

Collagen Glow Facial, Skin Essentals by Mariga, Wexford, skin clinic, anti-ageing

What is involved?

The Collagen Glow Facial combines the beautiful and deeply relaxing BioDynamic Lymphatic Drainage Technique with a skin-polishing enzyme treatment and the deep collagen-boosting effects of radiofrequency.

Who is it for?

This is a universal facial which will benefit all skin types except rosacea.

What does it do?

Plant enzymes begin the process of unveiling a radiant glow while the hypnotic massage techniques boost lymphatic flow to drain puffiness. The radiofrequency gently warms the deep tissues to re-awaken collagen fibres for longer-term results.

  • Oxygen levels in the skin are boosted for a youthful glow
  • Gentle enzyme therapy smooths the surface for a glass-like finish
  • BioDynamic Lymphatic Drainage Massage facilitates nutrient exchange for sharper contours
  • Radiofrequency tightens the skin and plumps fine lines

Is there any downtime?

Your skin will be pink and warm for up to an hour after treatment. 

Choose this beautiful facial for relaxation, glow, and age prevention. We highly recommend it before any night out or event for a glass-like, airbrushed skin.

The Collagen Glow Facial takes approx 45 minutes and costs €95.

Purchase this facial online, book your treatment online, or call us on 053 9145981 to pre-pay and book appointment over the phone.

Why use Vitamin C & E together?

As we mentioned before, our bodies can’t naturally make Vitamin C

And so we must get this Essential Vitamin from our skincare and from daily supplements.

Vit C tends to burn out of our system fairly fast, so it is a high intensity Vitamin. 

Nature has a lovely solution to that – Introducing Vitamin E.

Vit E is a really good partner to Vit C. It revs it up in our system and gets the Vitamin C going again in our skin.

When you are using Vit C products for your skin, do look that it has Vit E too. They will both help to activate in your system and will help get the most out of eachother.

  • Antioxidant Boost for skin protection and repair
  • Smooths texture
  • Instantly brightens
  • Boosts collagen production

Firming Dermal Peptide Infusion – New Treatment

One of the biggest stories in skincare this year has been the rise of dermal infusions.

Deeper and longer-lasting than a facial yet still comfortable to receive,

They bridge the gap between spa-type facials and the high intensity treatments such as microneedling or radio-frequency.

dermal infusions, mesotherapy, smartmeso, skin essentials by mariga, wexford

Dermal infusions, also known as cosmetic MesoTherapy, is all about getting high-quality ingredient molecules deeper into the skin, bypassing the protective outer layer of the skin, the stratum corneum, and arriving intact and fully charged in the deeper epidermal layers where they work on the cellular structure to produce a specific effect, depending on what ingredients are chosen for you.

You may already be familiar with the Hydrating & Brightening Hyaluronic Acid & Vitamin C dermal infusion we introduced earlier this year (and if you’re not you can read more here).

Now we are excited to debut our next MesoTherapy option – dermal peptides for skin cell rejuvenation and line smoothing.

The details:

Utilising a biostimulation product composed of 57 active ingredients including a complex of biomimetic peptides, multiple vitamins and amino acids, this meso infusion improves ageing skin and reduces and prevents expression and fine lines due to its potent regenerating power.

It also increases skin elasticity by regulating collagen and elastin leaving the skin, firmer,softer, smoother and younger looking.

GF sh-Oligopeptide-1 (CG-EGF), sh-Oligopeptide-2 (CG-IGF1), sh-Polypeptide-1 (CG-bFGF), sh-Polypeptide-2 (CG-TRX), Copper Tripeptide-1, 14 Vitamins, 24 Amino Acids, 4 Minerals,

Is Vitamin C a daily requirement?

Did you know, your body doesn’t make or store Vitamin C?

This makes Vit C an essential Vitamin, i.e. you have to get it in your diet and same goes for skincare.

We absolutely recommend using Vit C in your skincare daily in a milder form, and weekly in a stronger form.
