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:
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.
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.
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.

At Skin Essentials by Mariga, One of our most popular skin treatments addresses an issue many of us tend to have!
Especially when we get to a certain age – our sun spots love to appear in force…
As skin fanatics we know better then anyone that these skin issues can play on our minds as something we really should sort. So what are you waiting for?
We’re talking about Sun spots – Skin tags – Milia – but did you know how easy it is to remove them?
Some lesions we can treat
We’ve said it before but many of these issues above are quickly and easily removed in our state-of-the-art skincare clinic using diathermy or cryotherapy.
See below the list of what we treat at Skin Essentials by Mariga:
Red veins on the face
Sun spots (flat brown pigmented patches)
There are certain things that we can’t treat, such as:
Any lesion that bleeds, recurs or is varicoloured
When we get talking to clients, they often reveal some little anomaly on their skin (face or body) that really bothers them, and many are surprised to find out that we can treat them very easily in just a few minutes.
If there’s a skin issue on your mind that you’re looking to get rid of give us a call us on 053 91 45981, or drop in to our clinic in Selskar Street, Wexford, to find out if we can help you today.
We also offer this popular treatment in our Donnybrook, Dublin 4, clinic on the last Saturday of every month. Call us on 053 9145981 to book in this treatment for Donnybrook. Our next clinic day open for bookings is 28th September.
Last year, Mariga did a Facebook live video about this topic and received a lot of follow-up enquiries, so its always good to remind our customers that this is an area we can help.
See below our video for more detailed information about the treatments, prices and suitability.
Our Dublin pop-up clinic is now open for bookings…
You asked, we listened.
Throughout the month of July we’ve been getting lots of replies to our pop-up clinic survey. The majority of our distance customers have requested a pop-up clinic in Dublin.
Now we have found the perfect location! We’re so happy to announce that, for a trial period, on the *last Saturday of each month* we are going to host our pop-up clinic in Donnybrook village, Dublin 4. If it proves successful we would like to make it a regular spot!
Our first pop-up clinic dates are Sat, 31st August and Sat, 28th Sept from 9.30am to 4pm, Bookings to be made over the phone or by email.
To make your booking call us on 053 9145981 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Future dates are subject to change. Keep up-to-date on our Facebook page.*
In order to make our pop-up clinic days viable I will have to have a full clinic day every time I go, so please help spread the word by recommending us to your friends/leaving a review if you are happy to do so.
The limited treatments available in our Donnybrook clinic are:
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.
Contact us on 053 9145981 / 086 3823608 today or pop in to us in our clinic in Selskar, Wexford Town for more info today.
We were so pleased to have the wonderful actor, model and lifestyle guru – Vivienne Connolly, take a trip down to Wexford to try our exclusive Pyramid Facelift.
Actor, model and lifestyle guru Vivienne Connolly, here having the famous Pyramid Facelift
Having only launched this celebrity favourite treatment last July, the Pyramid Facelift has become the most sought after anti-ageing, skin tightening treatment at the Skin Essentials clinic!
The reaction so far has been fantastic, and the results speak for themselves…
The Pyramid Facelift combines TriPollar Radiofrequency, Trifractional radiofrequency, and Voluderm technology in one super-treatment for maximum impact and lasting results. (These may also be recommended separately or in a different combination for your skin, we personalise every course of treatment at consultation).
Best for: You have deeper wrinkles and noticeable laxity of the contours such as neck, jawline, mouth or eye area. You want a one-stop solution for reversing the signs of ageing and looking noticeable younger across all areas of the fas, eyes and neck. Also for pitted or indented acne scarring.
General age range: 40+
Treatment time: 40 minutes
Downtime? You may be red/pink for 3-10 days but can wear makeup from day after treatment
How many is needed? We will advise at your consultation, but 3-6 sessions is average
As we mentioned before, this is a non-invasive facelift and a great surgery alternative treatment. We don’t believe in invasive skin treatments and prefer to offer our clients a more natural and effective approach to anti-ageing and skincare needs.
On Vivienne Connolly’s visit to Skin Essentials, we also advised Vivienne on the best skincare products to use after getting the Pyramid Facelift so she can continue getting dramatic results weeks after the treatment.
