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.

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.

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.
I have created The Deluxe Dermal Infusion protocol in response to your requests to have a treatment that gives the relaxation of our signature classic facial plus the deep, long-lasting results of a clinical skin treatment.
Combining multiple elements from our extensive catalogue of exclusive specialist skin treatments, the Deluxe Dermal Infusion works on every layer of the epidermis to give you instant and lasting results for plumper, hydrated, revitalised and younger-looking skin.
What you can expect:
Skin is deeply and gently cleansed to prepare for all the goodness to follow…we then continue with a biodynamic lymphatic drainage massage of the face, neck and chest to promote nutrient exchange and drain any puffiness.
(This is everyone’s favourite part of our custom facials, if you haven’t has this massage before, be prepared for a treat!!).
A custom-chosen enzyme is then applied to the face to work on any surface concerns and you will enjoy a hot stone shoulder massage while that activates. Then, after an aromatic hot towel steam, it is time for the SmartMeso element of the treatment where Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C are infused deep into the epidermis to boost skin from within using nano-needling and electroporation technology.
Finally we will massage in a deeply nourishing mask to condition and comfort the skin.
Taking approximately 80 minutes (a little more or less depending on how much infusion your skin needs during the SmartMeso phase of the treatment), the Deluxe Dermal Infusion treatment is available with Jane or Mariga, price €185.
