The year so far in YOUR words – client testimonials

It has been a really exciting year for Skin Essentials,

Between learning the latest in:

  • Skin science,

  • Ingredients and applications from world-leading educators such as Lance Setterfield and Patrick Johnson,

  • Travelling to some lovely destinations including Adare Manor and Phoenix, Arizona

(I know, hard life!)

And exclusively launching the very best of anti-ageing treatments into Ireland with our Divine Pro machine, we’ve had a busy time!

But while the travel and learning is great in and of itself, the reason we do what we do is to provide the best possible results and experience for you, our valued clients.

In return we get to experience your delight as your skin gets better and better, younger and younger and that’s where the real joy of our job is.

TriPollar and LED facial

Tripollar radiofrequency, led facial, new facial experience, skin essentials by mariga, wexford

If you are looking for a fast, results-based facial to give you a super-glow before a big event or night out then we have just what you are looking for!

Our newest super-high-tech facial, created by Mariga in response to YOUR requests, is a blend of two exclusive technologies…

The TriPollar radiofrequency and BioPhotas light therapy which work together to brighten, tighten and sculpt your features for a fast result when you want to look the absolute best version of you – today!

TriPollar technology gently but deeply heats the facial tissues, tightening existing collagen fibres and encouraging the growth of new ones for an immediate tightened effect and longer-term youthful collagen boost.

BioPhotas’ LED is a low level light therapy that is best described as the application of specific wavelengths of light to tissue to obtain therapeutic benefits.

This can be customised to each individual’s needs but some examples of the therapeutic benefits are: reducing inflammation, up-regulating mitochondrial function to re-energize cells, collagen production or anti-bacterial action for acne or rosacea sufferers.

An hour long, this lovely treatment is warm, relaxing and has little to no downtime. You could have this on the same day as your event and wear makeup straight after if you wish.

This facial is suitable for all skin types and will leave you with a tighter, hydrated and radiant complexion. Not suitable for those who are pregnant, those with epilepsy or anyone prone to migraines.

This treatment costs €165 and can be booked online by clicking the button below, or call us on 053 9145981 for more info.

What NOT to do before your facial!

Facials at skin essentials by mariga, wexford, skin advice

I have done many thousands of facial treatments over the years and yet I can still be surprised by some of the things people will do before their facial.

From arriving straight from a lip waxing appointment to turning up with a coldsore, each time it reminds me that what may seem obvious to me is not necessarily so obvious to everyone.

I think maybe we are all guilty of forgetting that fact sometimes, in whatever area of expertise we operate.

Sometimes too, some temporary medications for a recent illness or even some types of painkillers can preclude treatment, or change the type of treatment that we can do for you on that particular day.

So to help ensure that we can go ahead with your facial service I made the video below covering some of the more common scenarios I come across, to help you get the timing right for your treatment.

I hate having to turn someone away when they turn up looking forward to a lovely hour for themselves so I hope this helps you avoid that situation!

Our top three treatments for men

All of our treatments at Skin Essentials, as well as our homecare products, are equally suitable for use by men or women.

We have found over the last couple of years that our male client base is growing really quickly when compared to past years and there are some treatments and products that are in higher demand among our male clientele that others.

So although all of our treatments are open to anyone, here are the top three chosen by the men of Wexford and beyond:

Red vein & skin tag removal: Does just what it says, this is the number one service chosen by the male clientele of Skin Essentials. Performed using either diathermy (electro-dessiction) or cryotherapy (freezing), these quick procedures are in high demand.

Treatments for men, red vein removal, skin tag removal, wexford

LED facials: Adaptable for skin needs as diverse as rosacea, acne, and dull skin, these light-based facials are particularly popular among our male clients, perhaps because they don’t need to shave before treatment!

Extraction facials: Targeted at softening and removing visible blackheads and whiteheads as well as those forming under the skin. Includes full face and eye area deep cleanse and hot towel steam.

If any of the above sounds like something you’d like to try, book your appointment online or call us on (053) 914 5981.

Doing My Own Voluderm / Pyramid Facelift – a super-quick demo

Take a trip inside the treatment room with me in the short video below.

I get in a session of Voluderm on my own skin and answer the most frequently asked questions about our most popular treatment.

Voluderm is one of the new treatments to Skin Essentials this year and along with the other technologies available on this platform (TriPollar Radiofrequency, Pyramid Facelift, TriFractional Resurfacing) have proven to be the most-requested skin therapy by far since the launch.

For my own skin needs I choose the Voluderm option as a tendency to hollowness under the eyes and in the lower cheeks and mouth is my primary concern. Voluderm has completely changed these areas for me!

If skin texture such as bumpiness, pores or lines are your concern then TriFractional is the best choice.

Concerned with your neck? Choose TriPollar Radiofrequency.

Do you have a little bit of everything above (most do!), then the Pyramid Facelift is your best pick, and our most popular treatment.

Which Advanced Skin Treatment Is Right For You?

We know,  there are a lot of treatments available on the market, all claiming to erase years from your face or restore your bumpy, textured skin to that of a 5 year old 😂

So, how would you know which to choose??

The good news is that we are here to guide and advise you on what is best for your particular needs and wants, based on many factors including your health, lifestyle, current skin condition and expectations.

All of the treatments we offer have been extensively researched and tested by our team before we take the decision to add them to our current menu of offerings, and many, many more do not make the cut – someday I must write a post about all the weird and not-so-wonderful treatments I have tried along the way!

Even within our own advanced skin treatments there are quite a few that may seem similar to a first glance, so even though we will advise you on the best way forward for you at your complimentary Divine Pro consultation, here is a quick summary to act as an overview of the different capabilities of each of our advanced treatments to give you an overall idea of what you might like to talk to us about trying.

Divine pro, anti-ageing treatments, skin essentials by mariga, wexford

Microneedling: Best for those who are early in the anti-ageing journey as a fantastic way to keep skin strong and youthful. Can also be taken in a series for those who would like to revise existing signs of ageing but for one reason or another are not suitable for our stronger, deeper treatments.

LED Light Treatment: Used as a stand-alone for acne or as an add-on to any of our advanced anti-ageing treatments, this lovely light therapy enhances the results of any other treatment.

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 under-eyes 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.
