Divine Pro and the Pyramid Facial

Say no to surgery, downtime and looking your age – Say yes to Divine Pro – The Celebrity Skin favourite at Skin Essentials in Wexford.

What will it do for your skin?

  • Dramatic lifting results on wrinkles and sagging skin
  • Eye contours tightened, reduce crows feet
  • Jawline contoured
  • Cheeks and mouth area re-volumised
  • Amazing results on acne scarring – even old scars
  • Neck lifted and tightened
  • Double chin tightened
  • Pores Reduced
  • Visible, lasting results without surgery or injectables

This is a game-changer!

 

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.

Before and after 5 treatments of tripollar radio frequency. Cheeks lifted, jawline tighter, double chin eliminated, mouth lines reduced, skin essentials clinic, wexford, ireland, exclusive stockist

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.

Age Slowly Microneedling Facial – New

Delay the signs of ageing!

With our newest facial, you can harness the benefits of microneedling PLUS the benefits of our customised facial in one relaxing treatment.

Our new Microneedling-Lite Treatment has been created to specifically address the concerns of first fine lines for both men and women.

-Boost collagen production for intense age-proofing
-Increase glow and radiance
-Plump out fine lines
-Nourish, hydrate and brighten your skin
-Refresh tired eyes
-Reduce puffiness
 

It is a lighter, cosmetic type of microneedling that has less downtime than traditional needling and is more comfortable to receive.

Because we use it to stimulate skin performance, not to penetrate products, we can combine it with some lovely elements of our customised facial for you so that you get the power of microneedling and also the skin-nourishing benefits of a facial in one 60 minute treatment, ideal for the busy lifestyles we lead today.

This is an amazing one to choose when you want to power up the age-prevention of your regular facial but don’t yet need the deep-revision of more intensive microneedling treatments.

…Best for you if you are under 35 with the very earliest signs of ageing such as tiny fine lines starting to appear around your eyes or your skin is starting to look duller or tired.

Perfect choice for brides (or grooms)-to-be for maximum radiance on your big day

Combining lymph drainage techniques to relieve puffiness, cosmetic microneedling to stimulate collagen and reduce the first signs of fine lines and skin laxity, and a seaweed-based mask to supply essential minerals to the skin cells while reducing signs of fatigue such as tiredness under the eyes.

Each treatment takes just 60 minutes and can be used as a stand-alone to stave off the visible signs of ageing or temporary issues that arise as a consequence of late nights, or a series of 3 will work a little deeper if you have been neglecting your skin.

Book our *Microneedling-Lite Facial* online: Cost €150 for a single session, or save €50 on a course of 3 for just €400. Call us on 053 9145981 for more info.

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.

Meghan Markle Has Pyramid Facelift Treatments

Does Duchess of Sussex and wife to Prince Harry Meghan Markle have Pyramid Facelift Treatments?

Celebrity plastic surgeon Mr. Gary Ross, says she has!

Commenting in UK celebrity magazine Reveal on how ageless Meghan’s skin looks he says “Non-invasive tightening treatments like the Pyramid Facelift could also explain her smooth, almost ageless skin.

As a Royal, Meghan needs to maintain natural beauty, so is unlikely to do anything drastic now.”

Meghan Markle pyramid facelift, Is Meghan Markle's ageless skin down to #pyramidfacelift treatments? Get this royal treatment exclusively in Ireland from Skin Essentials by Mariga, Wexford

Is Meghan Markle’s ageless skin down to #pyramidfacelift treatments?

I would agree that to maintain natural beauty and youthful skin so that you never have to go down the invasive route, these treatments are absolutely perfect. From gentle skin tightening treatments to deep anti-wrinkle results the Pyramid Facelift and Divine Pro technology can be customised to every anti-ageing need.

Best of all, it’s completely natural.

For a young skin like Meghan’s I would recommend a single treatment once or twice a year as a preventative measure to make sure that collagen production is kept at optimum levels. For older skin already needing correction courses of 3-6 treatments are best.

Of course, homecare is a vital step in ageless skin and you must maintain your results with great skincare products daily. Our therapists will be happy to guide you in making the best choices for your skin.

If you are thinking of following in Meghan’s footsteps and maintaining / regaining your youthful skin the natural way then we advise booking in for our free Divine Pro consultation with one of our skin experts in our Wexford Town Clinic.

The Pyramid Facelift is exclusive to Skin Essentials by Mariga in Wexford, we brought this technology to Ireland. You don’t have to be Meghan Markle to access top of the range treatments like the Pyramid Facelift, all our clients get the royal treatment😀

The Best Anti-Ageing Products

Which are the best anti-ageing products?

Probably the question I get asked the most!

At Skin Essentials we don’t like to generalise, and what may be the best anti-ageing products regimen for you may not be the best for the next person, so we love to customise routines as much as possible.

antiageing products at skin essentials by mariga

That being said, there are of course some basics that should be in everyone’s routine when anti-ageing is a concern. Ingredients such as epidermal growth factor, peptides, amino acids, high doses of anti-oxidants and cell renewal boosters such as Vitamin A are common requirement for every skin as time goes on.

Our fantastic serums are packed with these ingredients and here are my top two for all signs of ageing:

Hydra Collagen Serum: An absolute must for everyone over 35, this works with your skin to make and maintain youthful levels of collagen as well as repairing damage on a daily basis.

With ingredients such as vitamin C, epidermal growth factor, anti-oxidants by the multitude among many others, this will be your best tool in slowing all signs of ageing.

Use in the morning under SPF30 for a complete protect and repair routine.

Hydra Collagen Serum €68

Age Slowly Serum: The name is a bit of a give-away! This serum is for those who are battling fine lines, dullness and texture issues.

Also fantastic to help keep a lid on monthly breakouts, it includes vitamin A , hyaluronic acid and peptides to boost radiance, cellular renewal and normalisation of oil production.

Use at night under you chosen facial oil/cream.

Note: If your skin is dry, tends to redness or rosacea you will need to balance it by using Lipid Repair Concentrate at night for at least a month before introducing a product as active as Age Slowly Serum.

Usage tips:

  • Serums are always used on a clean skin before any other products such as creams or SPF
  • Our products are all very concentrated and one pump of any of the serums is the perfect amount for face eyes and neck.
  • Apply to damp skin right after cleansing for optimum penetration and spreadability.
  • All of our serums are designed for face and eye area, there is no need for a separate eye product.

Bio Therapeutic Micro Needling – Created by Mariga exclusively for Skin Essentials clients

Bio Therapeutic Micro Needling, What exactly is it and why is it available only at Skin Essentials by Mariga?

Picture of a sheep with the caption Skin Essentials by Mariga Wexford we research, innovate and create, we never follow the herd

One of the special things about choosing Skin Essentials by Mariga as your skincare service provider is that you are getting a completely bespoke experience. Not alone do we customise your treatment every time, we actually create protocols from scratch that are completely exclusive to Skin Essentials.

A good example of this is the Bio Therapeutic Micro Needling Protocol which I created (and copyrighted) in 2015.

At that time, and still currently as I write this, we were the only clinic in Ireland educated and approved by Dr. Lance Setterfield, global microneedling master educator, and also the only skin clinic in Europe with the world-leading Celluma LLT device.

Working closely with Celluma and bringing our own unparalleled levels of skin science education and experience into play, I created the treatment, and the name, Bio Therapeutic Micro Needling to describe the custom treatment we could now offer exclusively to our personal clientele. 

So, is it a combination of microneedling and LED and can’t anyone do that?

Yes, it is a combination of microneedling and LED and no, not anyone can do that! At least, not in the way we created. Our name ‘Bio Therapeutic Microneedling’ very specifically represents BIO photas, (creator of Celluma LED) THERAPEUTIC aftercare created only by Skin Essentials and the MICRONEEDLING protocols trained only by Dr. Setterfield.

Thus, the name very specifically relates to the treatment that I alone created combing all these elements. In addition, it is absolutely not a one-size-fits-all-treatment. Within the protocol there are any number of adjustments to each element that makes it completely unique to your own customised treatment. 

We do this with many of our treatments but I am specifically focusing on this one in today’s blog as it has been brought to my attention that Bio Therapeutic Micro Needling as a treatment name is being offered elsewhere and I want to assure you that I have never trained anyone else in this protocol and if they are using my protocol name then it is not with my permission and certainly they are not using the same techniques, products and skill that you can expect only from Skin Essentials therapists.

Usually I don’t care about the copycats, I have had to put up with that a lot in my career as I am always very focused on research, innovation and bringing the best to you, which sometimes other people (wrongly) think that they can recreate without doing the groundwork.

But in this instance I wanted to highlight it as it is a direct copying of a name I created but cannot be the same treatment as I have never shared the techniques so please don’t be fooled into thinking that you can get our treatments anywhere else. 

I really didn’t mean this to be a negative post but sometimes I get frustrated that clients are being fooled in this manner, always do your research and ask questions! I guess it’s obvious that anyone who is not concerned with copyright/IP infringement is hardly likely to have their clients best interest at the front of their mind when performing treatments.

On the bright side, know that you can always trust us at Skin Essentials to bring you honesty, integrity and originality 😀
