At Skin Essentials by Mariga we are always researching, learning and training to make sure that we are bringing you the very best in new skin treatments, as well as constantly updating our current offering to keep pace with industry developments worldwide. As you may know, Jane and I are just back from a week of extensive training and I wanted to bring you up to speed on what we were up to and let you in on the updates from the world of advanced non-invasive skincare.
Although we do lots of training through the year, we find it really beneficial to do one intensive week where we can pack as much knowledge in as possible, meet the people who are making exciting changes in the beauty world, and connect with like-minded therapists. It’s just a bonus that this education takes place in the beautiful Desert Southwest of Phoenix, Arizona 😃
Every year we hear from expert formulators about what is new and emerging in the realm of skincare ingredients that we can potentially incorporate into our products and treatments (lots of new info on hormonal adult acne!), and then there are bonus workshops on different themes. This year that included learning from Becky Kuehn of Oncology Spa Solutions who has a passion for bringing oncology skincare to primary cancer care centres and training other therapists in this rewarding branch of our jobs. As I have been a qualified oncology skincare practitioner for a few years now, I was especially interested to hear the great work she is doing in the US and would love to see something similar happen in Ireland. We also enjoyed learning from Lori Crete, a renowned Beauty Business Coach on excellence in customer service and business practice and had an interesting talk from skincare formulator John Stanek, who finally managed to make me understand the concept of ‘heavy water’ as a skincare ingredient as opposed to a marketing term. His lecture on stem cells was also very interesting.
So what does all this mean for you, our lovely clients??
-More chemistry, bio-chemistry and physiology education always means a more micro-tailored treatment with predictable outcomes so every treatment we perform is enhanced every time we study the latest scientific discoveries. But, you want to know what new treatments and/or products we brought back, don’t you? 😂
From this trip (and ongoing training we are undertaking here) you can expect the following from Skin Essentials over the next few weeks and months:
-A whole new suite of treatments aimed at rejuvenating the décolleté/chest area. Think reducing sun damage, plumping crepey and loose skin, eliminating sun spots, firming and brightening. From individual one-off treatments to refresh the skin of the chest to fully bespoke packages for dramatic rejuvenation, there will be something for you.
-Advancements in BioDynamic Lymphatic Drainage facial massage, relaxing, brightening and a Godsend for puffy skin.
-More oncology-safe facials
-The introduction of LipofirmMed Skin Tightening. Over twice the radiofrequency power of our current offering, this updated Divine Pro treatment can be done all over the face and neck for skin tightening and contour sharpening, or concentrated specifically on the neck and jawline for those of you who find that the neck area is your giveaway!
I think that’s enough to be going on with, don’t you?? As always we can tailor any treatment specifically for your needs so please reach out to us to find out how we can help you today.
