Not all intensive skin lifting treatments are more to be endured than enjoyed!
While some of the most intensive (but still non-surgical) skin lifting procedures are of the kind that you are excited to have and also happy when they are finished…
The LipofirmMed is a completely relaxing experience.
Perfect for those who want a subtle but still visible ‘tweakment’, those who are looking to rewind the first signs of lines and loosening skin, or those who are natural scardey-cats!
Using warming TriPollar Radiofrequency applied in a massaging motion to deeply warm the tissues and gently tighten and stimulate collagen, and Deep Muscle Activation to further tighten the jawline if required, this treatment takes around 30 minutes and is taken in a series of 6-10.
See the video below of this enjoyable treatment in action then give us a call to schedule your consultation and get started on the most enjoyable anti-ageing facial treatment you will ever experience.

In Mariga’s latest vlog she talks about the most common Summer skin problems and the easiest solutions.
Hint: SPF is everything…
Humidity is a major factor for this annoyance! If you tend to perspire on the face, you may be prone to enlarged pores and breakouts in the Summer time. You may also find your SPF cream or make-up latches on.
Pores: Pores tend to swell in the heat, anything in your pores may become trapped and will irritate your skin, such as oil and sweat.
Breakouts: The blocked pores slows down the excretion process thus causing little pimples around your nose, chin or hairline.
Solution? Cleanse your face more often.
Wearing make-up as your only source of SPF?
No way! Some foundations contain SPF, but there isn’t enough SPF in them to get full protection.
How can you wear SPF with your make-up throughout the day? We’re always told to reapply SPF about every 2 hours, especially when out in the sun. If you wear make-up every day this will be tricky to do…
You have 2 choices: If wearing make-up, cleanse your face and reapply every few hours (Not ideal, we know), OR don’t wear foundation so you can easily top up your SPF.
Solution? I recommend the 2nd choice of not wearing make-up if you’re going to be out in the sun as you can easily top up your SPF for protection. Protecting your skin is the ultimate goal.
Top Tip: Putting foundation over your SPF using a brush or sponge etc, interferes with the SPF cream you have underneath.
I would recommend leaving your SPF on your face a while before putting your foundation on. After your morning cleanse, put your SPF on and go about your morning routine before doing your make-up.
If you do wear foundation, Mariga recommends using a Mineral powder make-up with a soft brush as it would be best for leaving your SPF cream in place underneath.
P.S. Don’t forget to protect your skin on your whole body inc. hands and neck (the first places to see signs of ageing)
A brief overview of each treatment and it’s benefits:
TriPollar Radiofrequency – as a stand-alone modality, a course of radiofrequency facials will give lasting results on tightening, softening and smoothing skin that has lost elasticity. Particularly recommended for those most concerned with neck/jawline areas.
As a single treatment this is fab to have before an event or night out for that tightened, radiant look.
TriFractional Radiofrequency – A combination of 2 radiofrequency technologies plus microneedling, this treatment is the one for resurfacing the whole skin. Recommended where texture is an issue whether that is from uneven or rough skin, enlarged pores, lines or old flat/red scarring. Also great to tighten jawline.
Taken in a series this will give you long-lasting smooth, even, more toned skin with reduced lines, scars and pore size. A single treatment is a great re-boot for most skin types looking for a deep revitalisation.
Voluderm – Similar to TriFractional in that it combines 2 radiofrequency technologies plus microneedling. The difference here is that we are targeting deeper in the skin for a plumped, ‘filler’ like effect. See cheeks plumped up to a much more youthful volume, hollow undereyes filled out, forehead and eye lines reduced and nose-to-mouth lines softened.
Best in a series, choose this one when loss of volume, or hollowness, is the primary concern. This treatment is also the only non-invasive method to help minimise pitted acne scarring,
Pyramid Facelift – Combines radiofrequency, trifractional resurfacing and voluderm in one intensive treatment to get the benefits of all three. Choose this one when you are concerned with multiple signs of ageing such as lines, loss of volume and sagging and want to address them all in a fast, effective manner. Our most popular anti-ageing treatment.

If you are acne prone, whether teenage or adult acne, there are some common lifestyle factors that will contribute to breakouts.
While there are many individual factors that influence and trigger breakouts including hormones, genetics, environment and nutrition…
There are also some common triggers that need to be avoided by everyone who is prone to any type of acne.
There is no single fix for acne as it has many contributory factors and some of these vary in severity from person to person.
Also, you need to be very compliant with your routine as acne is always ‘under control’, never ‘cured’. But there is every hope that you can keep your breakouts minimised if you are willing to commit to your skincare routine and lifestyle/dietary changes.
Here are some things to avoid to help get you started on clearing your pimples and spots:
Ditch the dairy. There is no middle ground on this one, consumption of dairy products directly impacts breakouts. Try almond milk on your cereal.
Sticking with nutrition, sugar is the next culprit you need to limit in your diet. It contributes to inflammation and so to inflammatory acne. I agree that it is hard to eliminate completely but see how much you can clean up in your diet and watch the impact on your skin.
Again, a dietary tip (see how much your gut health has to do with your condition of your skin?). Be sure to get your 5 a day and drink more water & herbal teas than coffee. Skin, like the rest of your body, needs the building blocks of a strong, healthy structure to flourish and a lot of this comes directly from your diet.
Picking – everyone is guilty of it but squeezing blackheads, popping pimples and generally poking at your face will spread infection, cause scarring and definitely not reduce the breakout!
Use ice to cool a hot or sore spot, it will act as an anti-inflammatory and make the spot clear more quickly. Remember, once you see a spot on the surface, it is too late to do anything about it.
Using random products without any plan or cohesion. It can be tempting to try the latest internet ‘tip’ (who even starts these viral things??) but always consider the source! Professional skincare advice should only come from a skincare professional. Not a facebook meme. Mixing glue and charcoal and applying it to your face is not something you will find in any cosmetic chemistry textbook 😳. Believe me, if there were some instant or miracle cure for acne, we as skincare professional would know!
Also, jumping between one product and another will never work, even if the products are great! Getting on top of acne is a long-term situation and even the very best acne control protocols take months to show the results on the surface as the foundation work in correcting dysfunction deep in the skin comes first.
As specialists in skincare, we also create our own skincare products including our very popular Blemish Control Cream.
This is an acne control system that works on all the causes of spots simultaneously to give you real, long-term results.
I hope by now you are aware that skincare is a long game.
Despite marketing promises and social media filtering there is no such thing as a magic potion for correcting skin issues such as acne, wrinkles, sagging skin, redness issues etc. etc.
Some of these issues are caused by internal factors such as genetic predisposition or medical problems, some are caused by years of accumulated external factors such as sun exposure, inappropriate skincare products or other bad skin and lifestyle habits.
Most things can be improved, many dramatically with a combination of long-term excellent skincare at home and appropriate clinical treatments for your particular skin.
So, what are these quick fixes then??
Strangely, it’s the things that you might think you can’t treat/improve/get rid of at all that are actually easy and quick to fix, such as:
Visible red veins on the face
Sun spots / age spots
Many other benign skin lesions
Great result achieved with a single cryotherapy treatment on seb keratosis
Have you been putting up with annoying skin lesions for years thinking that they can’t be addressed, or that it would take an expensive round of GP referral/dermatologist visits to treat?
Then you will be happy to know that all the above skin anomalies and more can be very quickly treated by Mariga at Skin Essentials right here in Wexford Town.
Using diathermy or cryotherapy we can quickly and easily remove unsightly or annoying lesions. Unlike a scalpel removal, these methods do not leave any scars.
We do a full consultation with you before treatment to determine suitability and also to let you know whether you will need one or more treatments, and how much each will be.
With prices starting from €35 for diathermy or from €75 for cryotherapy, and many lesions treated in a single session, now is the time to call and book your quick skin fix!
P.S. While we can’t change your skin long-term, we can get you short-term ready for an event or to kick-start you for a longer-term skin correction programme with our deep skin infusions.
Hydrating and plumping hyaluronic acid and revitalising vitamin C will give your skin a beautiful, dewy radiance from the first treatment – read more about it here.

In Mariga’s latest vlog she talks about our Advanced Treatments in our Summer Promotion…
…and how you know which one is right for your skin.
We’re going to go through the difference between our new LipoFirmMed Skin Tightening Treatment and our Pyramid Treatments.
Both treatments were in our Summer Promotion (ended early July) and our customers were asking what the difference’s are between them.
Keep in mind we personalise our treatments and skincare for everybody. For those looking for personal advice we would need to talk to you so we can get to know your skin or better yet, come in to us so we can see your skin in person in order to get the best possible treatment plan for you.
Our new LipoFirmMed Skin Tightening Treatment has just launched at Skin Essentials. You will need a course of 6 of this treatment in order to see full results, so take advantage of this great.
This is for people whose main concern is laxity or sagging of the skin. This might affect the lower part of a persons face more so than the upper part.
If your main concern is loss of sharpness and contours, this treatment is great for these areas below:
Smoothing out neck creases.
The treatment is performed all over the face and neck, and you will see skin tightening results on all of these areas mentioned above.
We also recommend it for people who are concerned with more advanced ageing than that, in the situation where they are contraindicated from having the Pyramid Facelift i.e. they’re on blood thinning medication or other medications that might not suit for this treatment.
We do go through a checklist with you before the treatment in case you can’t have our advanced skincare treatments such as the Pyramid Facelift or Microneedling etc.
The LipoFirmMed Skin Tightening is a results driven treatment without needling. After the course of 6 this treatment will last up to about a year and a half. It tightens, plumps and pulls back loosened skin.
Our LipoFirmMed Skin Tightening treatment is a Celebrity favourite for Shane Cooper of Advanced Esthetics Solutions UK. Nicola Roberts of GirlsAloud are just one of many of Shane’s celebrity clients to have this treatment.
The Pyramid Facelift is an anti-ageing treatment. Our Summer Promotion is particular good for thise who have already had their course of the Pyramid as a single top-up to their skin.
This is our most effective anti-ageing facial at Skin Essentials.
Trifractional Resurfacing is another great treatment is our Summer Promotion. Buy as a Single treatment to help with texture issues.
This treatment is one element of the Pyramid Facelift. It is for people who are concerned with texture i.e. anything you can touch, see or feel like rough skin, bumpy skin or enlarged pores. It also gives tightening to jawline and eye contours. As mentioned above we have a Single Trifractional treatment available in our Summer Promotion until tonight, but you can also buy multiple to create your course of this treatment.
Microneedling is for younger skin. It boosts collagen production to future proof your skin i.e. dramatically slowing the ageing process.
SmartMeso Skinfusion is one of our newer treatments to Skin Essentials, and it creates hydration and plumping to dehydrated and devitalised skin. This goes a lot deeper than a classic facial to reboot your skin and complexion.
This is a great treatment to have after sun exposure. This treatment is full of antioxidents as it introduces Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid to the skin.
Buy any of our Summer Promotion treatments online or call us on 053 9145981. Promotion ends at midnight TONIGHT (6/7/19)
