Bad acne? We Have Good News!

Bad acne? Don’t Worry, We Have Good News!

Acne comes in many forms and while you may feel hard done by if your particular type is red, inflamed and angry while your friend has a few blackheads and occasional spots, you may be in for a pleasant surprise. 

You will be pleased to know that the worst acne is actually the easiest to treat and control!

This is because these types of acne eruptions are closer to the surface and so respond much better to treatment. Of course, you must be on the correct treatment to begin with.

Most acne cases will fall into one of the four grades below:

Grade I: Blackheads

Grade II: Blackheads and whiteheads

Grade III: Above plus papules (red, raised spots) and pustules (infected spots)

Grade IV: Above plus deep, hard nodules. This is known as cystic acne

Grades III and IV are actually the easiest to bring under control but also the most likely to scar so it is important that you take advice from a skincare professional as soon as possible to reduce the instance of post-acne scarring and other marking.

With your personalised Skin Essentials by Mariga acne treatment programme you can expect to see major improvement within 3 months with compliance.

Book your assessment now on 053 9145981 and take back control of your skin.

Are you a past acne sufferer and now have scarring left behind?  DOn’t worry – we have great options for dealing with your acne scarring so that you can leave all traces of your acne behind you and move on! Until recently there were many options for red or flat scarring such as microneedling or chemical peels and these are still a great way to improve these types of scarring but indented or pitted scars were not treatable non-surgically until recently.

We now have available to us great new technology that can dramatically improve the depth and colour of these types of scars. See the pic below for a recent result of one of our clients!

New Teen Acne Packages

We are so excited to partner with an amazing brand for our new acne treatment programmes.

From occasional pimples to full-blown deep-set acne, we can tailor an in-clinic and at-home programme for you.

Having completed intensive ingredient and protocol certification with Skin Script’s director of education, we are confident that we have sourced the best acne solution on the market for our clients that is consistent and more affordable than many other options.

What’s involved?

This is all about targeted ingredients, used in a customised way for each client, both in the treatment room and at home.

Teen acne needs to be addressed with a very consistent approach in order to disrupt the pattern of blockage-pimple-infection that is occurring in the pores.

The application of at-home products as directed is crucial to the success of the programme so we need a commitment of consistency from you before we start! 

Each regime will consist of a minimum of 6 customised acne treatments and a homecare routine to be followed. You must attend for a consultation first so that we can create a programme for you, and you will take home your products on the first day to begin prepping at home for your clinical treatments.

Once we begin your treatments (anywhere from 1-4 weeks after starting on homecare depending on your skin’s initial presentation), you must attend weekly for 6 weeks while also continuing homecare.

The treatments are short, 20 minutes on average, but very important. Missing a week will mean you will not get the full result.

The treatments will consist of a customised blend of enzymes/acids/masks as well as any necessary extractions.

We will customise a package exactly for you at your initial consultation. Our packages usually consist of 6 x custom-blended peels and a set of products that we would recommend. (Sample treatment package pricing: course of 6 €290 / €60 per individual treatment).

Call us on 053 9145981 for more info, or you can book your teen acne consultation online.
