Skin Texture issues? Solved with Trifractional Resurfacing

Is your skin texture the issue that is bothering you?

-Bumpy or rough feeling to the skin?

-Enlarged Pores?

-Dull, patchy surface?

-Acne scarring?

-Ongoing congestion in the pores?

Then you need to know about TriFractional Skin Resurfacing using the Divine Pro technology.

Combining a shallow type of microneedling treatment with radio frequency energy, the skin’s surface is gently but thoroughly resurfaced to leave it smoother, brighter and a lot more even.

With typical downtime of just a few hours and results visible from the very first treatment, we know you will love this just as much as we do!

From having a single treatment to rejuvenate and smooth minor texture issues, right through to an intensive series for scar revision, we create a programme exactly right for you. By combining this incredible technology with corrective homecare products adjusted for your particular skin’s needs, we both correct the issue and prevent it from happening again. 

When treating texture, we use a shallow needle array to direct the radiofrequency exactly where we need it within the stratum corner / upper epidermis, meaning the treatment is applied only where needed, giving a quicker recovery time.

From stand-alone TriFractional to treat superficial skin texture issues to combination therapies targeting deeper issues and scarring, we have almost limitless options to customise your resurfacing treatment.

Give us a call on 053 9145981 or drop in to us at our Wexford Town clinic (find us in Selskar, right next door to the Selskar Bookshop) to find out how we can help you today.

You can also book your complimentary Divine Pro Consultation online on our live booking system

New and improved formula – Daily Nutrient Serum is now Essential Nutrient Serum

New Essential Nutrient Serum from Skin Essentials:

Daily Serum is now more concentrated and paraben-free

Summary: Daily Nutrient Serum has been replaced by the more concentrated Essential Nutrient Serum which gives all the benefits of DNS, but with added high-powered anti-oxidants for cell protection and anti-ageing, and added anti-inflammatory for cell protection and repair and anti-ageing AND anti-redness, phew!

Active Ingredients in new serum NOT in Daily Nutrient Serum:

Fucoxanthin
(increases collagen synthesis and UV protection) Fucoidans are sulfated polysaccharides with structures that depend on the plant source and growing conditions.

Applied to the skin, fucoidan will increase the density of collagen bundles, decrease activity of proteases (enzymes that break down dermal proteins), increase scavenging of free radicals and increase cell proliferation.

These effects would be mediated through increased expression of ß1-integrin and may also help with wound healing.

Astaxanthin
Because of its particular molecular structure, astaxanthin serves as an extremely powerful antioxidant.

It has a very effective quenching effect against singlet oxygen, a powerful scavenging ability for lipid and free radicals and effectively breaks peroxide chain reactions.

Carotenoids are effective at low oxygen concentrations, complementing the activity of vitamin E which is effective at higher oxygen concentrations.

Astaxanthin has also been shown to enhance and modulate the immune system. The antioxidant and immunomodulating activities, in combination or separately, may reduce the acute inflammation reaction that follows excessive exposure to UV radiation for the skin and tissue just beneath the skin.

Hyaluronic Acid
Included instead of sodium hyluronate, the bigger molecule holds more water and binds water in the upper layers of the epidermis. Will not draw water from lower epidermal layers in dry air.

The formula is now water-free so no parabens (more concentrated)

  • Ingredients in DNS NOT in new serum
  • water, parabens
  • Laminara Japonica extract
  • Arthrospira
  • Sea kelp extracts
  • Sodium hyaluronate
    (See above)

Essential Nutrient Serum is a more concentrated, more anti-inflammatory and more anti-oxidant serum than Daily Nutrient Serum.

It still has the water-based daily nutrients such as peptides, coconut endosperm, and anti-irritant bisabolol.

The hyaluronic acid bigger molecule makes it more moisturising and a little thicker.

Suitable for:

  • Younger skin
  • Men after shaving
  • Change to other serum once ageing becomes a concern
  • Better for acne anti-inflammatory
  • Use for younger rosacea where anti-ageing not yet needed

LipoFirmMed Skin Tightening

New for Summer 2019 – LipoFirmMed Skin Tightening

This facial rejuvenation skin tightening treatment is ideal for those looking to boost their collagen production , hydrate deeply and smooth the first appearance of lines.

You may be familiar with or already experienced our TriPollar Radiofrequency Skin Tightening – well now meet it’s big sister – LipoFirmMed. Double the intensity and with added Deep Muscle Activation for extra jawline tightening!

This course of treatment is performed all over the face, eye contours and neck for visible results such as tighter jawline and eye area contours, neck lines are beautifully smoothed, and an over all lifted and brightened appearance to the skin.

DMA (Dynamic Muscle Activation) is a non-invasive skin tightening and lifting treatment which contributes to a firmer and more youthful-looking face. The deep electrical stimulation of the facial muscles enables you to achieve a beautifully-defined V-shaped silhouette, noticeable from the first treatment.
The combined technologies work both internally and externally as a synergistic skin and muscle treatment which stimulates the contraction of SMAS (Superficial muscular aponeurotic system) in the face. This results in tightening of the skin and re-energising the skin’s collagen.

TriPollar is a 3rd-generation non-invasive RF anti-aging technology that rejuvenates the skin and effectively treats wrinkles, including fine lines around the lips and eyes. An immediate, long-lasting skin tightening effect is achieved from the first treatment.
The TriPollar technology is based on focused RF energy that heats the dermis, while sophisticated algorithms ensure that the epidermis remains unharmed. The heat causes collagen fibers to contract and stimulates the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. This results in immediate skin tightening and smoothing, and the appearance of younger, glowing skin.

This is a very comfortable treatment to receive and takes just 30 minutes per session, taken weekly. A course of 6 will give maximum results which will last up to 2 years. There is very little downtime with this facial treatment, just some red/pink colour in the treated areas for a couple of hours.

LipoFirmMed is perfect for those who want visible, lasting results but do not want or do not need the added wrinkle reduction and resurfacing of the more intensive Pyramid Facelift treatment. Choose this one when sagging or creepy skin is your main concern. Especially effective on the neck!

Skin Essentials by Mariga is proud to be the first clinic in Ireland to offer this treatment. Please call us on 053 9145981 for more details or book online now.

A consultation will be required before embarking on any new course of treatment. This will take just 10 minutes and is free of charge. Radiofrequency is not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding mums, those with severe cardiac conditions, epilepsy, diabetes or pacemakers.

Launching: 27th June 2019

Price: Single treatment €125 / Course of 6 pre-paid normally €600 / Summer 2019 Intro Special Course of 6 pre-paid €500

Microneedling demo – watch me have the treatment done

Microneedling is our most requested treatment here at Skin Essentials by Mariga. It is also the one most people have questions about or don’t fully understand. I blame incorrect information on the internet for this – mostly for the idea that microneedling causes bleeding or is extremely invasive with a lot of downtime. In fact, bleeding is rare and isolated to areas where we have to work deeper due to scars. Needling for wrinkles, lines and age prevention is relatively non-invasive and much more comfortable than you would imagine. In the three minute video below you can see a snippet of me having the treatment done and get an idea of how easy it really is!

Microneedling is natural, safe, proven, suitable for almost everybody and my personal favourite Age Slowly treatment. Combine it with great, personalised homecare and regular maintenance facials for the ultimate in anti-ageing skincare. All our needling treatments include LED for an added boost of power and a relaxing treat after the microneedling.
