At Skin Essentials, we create bespoke facial treatments for all our clients on an appointment-by-appointment basis, to reflect your skin’s progress and needs on the day.
Treatments last 30, 45, 60 or 90 minutes depending on your needs, preferences and budget.
Blending the power of natural, active ingredients and modern medical aesthetics, a Skin Essentials by Mariga skin treatment is a must for anyone that is serious about their skincare.
Your treatment recommendations will be set out at your initial consultation and once your corrective course, if needed, is complete, then you will have maintenance treatments every 4-12 weeks depending on your individual needs.
Active ingredients and cutting edge technological modalities are custom chosen for your skins needs every time, making this a TRULY personalised treatment.
Skin Essentials 30 minute Bespoke Facial Skin Treatment
Customised for your skins needs on the day, this result-driven treatment is our most popular service. €45-€50
Skin Essentials 60 minute Deluxe Bespoke Facial Skin Treatment
All the power of the 30 minute treatment, with added high-performance mask and our signature sculpting massage. €89 – €100
NEW! InfusION+ therapy
Incorporate the power of ION+ therapy into your facial.
Choose from VitalfusION+ to brighten, revitalise and smooth a dull or sluggish skin, or LiftfusION+ for a tightening and radiance effect perfect before a big event when you want some extra wow factor for your skin!
ION+ therapy will be used as part of your bespoke treatment when appropriate, or you can request it if you have an occasion coming up, be sure to let your therapist know! (included in the price of your bespoke facial).
Ion therapy can also be taken in a series to deeply revitalise skin that has been neglected, or to delay the first signs of ageing when fine lines start to appear.
It is also a great maintenance treatment between microneedling courses for maintaining skin texture, health and vitality.
The Perfecter with Mariga – 80 minutes targeting red veins, milia and anti-ageing
For the first time it is possible to have your anti-ageing skin treatment in combination with diathermy removal of red veins and milia.
This is a truly complete facial that targets ALL of your skin issues in a single visit to Skin Essentials.
Merging three essential anti-ageing and complexion correction elements together for the first time, this treatment is exclusive to Skin Essentials. You will not find a similar treatment anywhere else in Ireland!
So many of you want to have facials for skin maintenance, brightening, breakouts or anti-ageing.
BUT you also have an annoying visible red vein or two (or twenty, good old Irish weather), on your cheeks or perhaps some milia bumps around your eyes or those little skin tags on your neck or chest.
Well now you don’t have to decide which treatment you will have in your precious free time, The Perfecter Facial gives you both.
In one 80 minute session, your skin will be:
- Deep cleansed
- Infused with a customised cocktail of vitamins and minerals
- Any clogged pores or blackheads extracted
- Milia and red veins treated with diathermy on face neck and chest
- Followed by a soothing mask treatment
- And finally, 30 minutes of LED photo-modulation therapy customised to your needs, whether that is anti-ageing, anti-acne or anti-inflammatory.
This is a treatment that so many of us could use once a year or so (after a certain age!) to deal with the visible capillaries and other skin anomalies that are the result of sun exposure over the years, and just living life!
We all get them, now you know the secret to getting rid of them
Particularly if you travel a long distance to see us here at Skin Essentials, I know this will be a great addition to your clinical routine. Save two separate trips for separate diathermy and facials.
This treatment is currently only performed by myself, so appointments are limited and available Thursday – Saturday weekly.
The cost per treatment is €150. Advance booking is recommended as I do get booked up quite far ahead!
The new (light)wave in skin therapy: LED Biophotonic Therapy
LED Biophotonic therapy is a light-based non-invasive treatment used to treat the signs of ageing in facial skin and also used in the treatment of acne.
LED Biophotonic Therapy works deep in the cellular structure of the skin in a non-invasive manner to promote
- Collagen production
- Reduce redness
- Reduce lines
- And fight bacteria, giving you smoother, brighter, plumper skin with fewer blemishes.
LED uses a technology first developed by NASA to help with wound healing in space.
It’s aesthetic application uses the device to deliver light deep into skin tissue to promote growth.
The mitochondria (energy components) of the cell are stimulated, colour-sensitive chemicals are activated, skin cells are re-energised and collagen production boosted.
Skin Essentials are proud to be the first skincare clinic in Europe with Celluma Biophotonic Therapy.
The Celluma machine’s unique application of the technology (slower, longer pulses in a mouldable panel) allows for the most powerful effect, combining multiple wavelengths of blue, red and infra red light in the same session to give your skin a power super-boost in a very relaxing treatment.
A multi-award-winning device, we believe this is the best LED machine on the market today, nothing but the best for Skin Essentials clients!
Biophotonic therapy can be used as a stand-alone treatment when taken in a series for anti-ageing or acne, or a single session can be added on to your prescribed facial or peel treatment to supercharge your results.
It is an exceptional add-on to our gold microneedling treatment, speeding and boosting results.
As the light waves are working on a deep, cellular level you will find that positive changes in your skin’s appearance continue to occur for weeks and months after your initial course.
These can be enhanced by monthly single-session top-ups and use of the correct skincare for your skin’s needs.
Single 30 minute session €40
Join our LED Celluma Club!
As the effects of the Celluma LED are cumulative, the ideal way to use it at the beginning is as often as possible! Ideally the treatment should be taken three times a week for 30 minutes and after the first month a maintenance programme of once a week is ideal.
To help you get the most from your biophototherapy treatments with us we have created the Celluma Club.
Unlimited sessions of the Celluma treatment for 1 month for an amazing €250!
Remember, it is usually €40 for a single light treatment. Fantastic for first time anti-ageing clients who want to dramatically accelerate the results of their new skincare programme.
A must-do for acne too.
While peels are very often overused in this industry by people who do not understand the skin in-depth, they are still a useful tool for some skin conditions when in the hands of an educated expert.
We offer only skin-friendly, customised, targeted peels that work with the skins processes, not against them, as many off-the-shelf peels do.
Power Peel: combined acid peel
Used for neglected, congested or sun-damaged skin to renew, soften and brighten.
Our newest peel treatment combines a blend of AHAs and BHAs, applied to your skin after a thorough cleanse to deeply decongest and brighten.
Gentle and progressive results even for sensitive skin. Highly recommended!
No downtime required.
Pro Peel Plus combined acid peel
This is our higher strength, multi-acid peel that is oil based for gentle yet powerful renewal.
This peel can be used for deep congestion issues, bumpy pores or as a final treatment after a course of Rejuvenator peels for those concerned with anti-ageing.
Lactic Acid Peel: Hydrating & Depigmenting
This high-powered AHA peel is for those concerned primarily with texture issues.
Rough, flaking and uneven skin will be replaced with renewed, smooth radiant skin.
Lactic acid is found in the ‘natural moisturising factor’ in your skin, making this a very well tolerated treatment.
Note: Some microscopic flaking may be experienced for up to 4 days after treatment.
Best taken in a course spaced one week apart.
Single €70 – €80
Course of six €375
Note: If you have started or stopped any medication since your last treatment, are pregnant or breastfeeding, or have had any facial waxing or laser procedure in the week prior to your facial treatment, you may not be able to receive treatment.
Please let us know before your appointment if this is the case and we can adapt your treatment or change your appointment as necessary.
