These are The top five pre-wedding beauty treatments that make a visible difference …

At the Institute of Dermatologists, you’ll discover the most cutting-edge technology in facial treatments, tailored to your personal needs. Safe, effective and carried out by experts, our state-of-the-art Cosmetic Suite will ensure you look the very best that you can for your big event.

For improving skin tone and texture …

Photofractional Rejuvenation is a two-in-one complete skin rejuvenation solution that treats a number of concerns. This treatment works by combining the ResurFX® fractional resurfacing laser with IPL Photorejuvenation, targeting a multitude of concerns from scarring, wrinkles and broken veins to pigmentation, uneven texture and open pores. The Institute of Dermatologists is the only Irish centre to offer this trademarked dual treatment, and our patients are seeing excellent results, making this an extremely popular procedure. 

For smoothing skin and boosting radiance …

Very popular with brides who want to look radiant on their special day, Dermaplaning is a form of mechanical exfoliation of the skin; a sterile surgical blade gently removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells and fine vellus hair (peach fuzz). Very safe and suitable even for sensitive skin, with no downtime, Dermaplaning leaves skin immediately smoother and brighter, without affecting the rate the hair grows back. It enhances the penetration of active ingredients in skincare, and make-up goes on more smoothly, for a flawless look. Prices range from €100 to €250. For optimum results, book for eight to ten days prior to a special event.

Since Dermaplaning allows enhanced penetration of professional skincare treatments, here in the Institute we use it as the perfect prep for intensive hydrating facials. For the ultimate skin prep for a special event, the Deluxe Dermaplane and Hyper Radiance Facial sees dramatic results, with deep cleansing, Dermaplaning, a Biologique Recherche double-masking technique using the utmost in hydrating and lipid-replenishing ingredients for extended hydration, followed by cryostick application to brighten and firm the skin (€250, 75 minutes). If time is short, Plane and Glow is a fast and effective 45-minute treatment, with Dermaplaning followed by the cult favourite oxgenating Biologique Recherche Masque VIP 02 to detoxify and hydrate the skin (€145).

For redness and broken veins …

IPL is an extremely effective treatment. At the Institute of Dermatologists, we use the most advanced model on the market, the Lumenis M22, to erase years of damage without disrupting the skin’s delicate surface.  

For tightening skin around the eyes and treating dark circles …

Platelet Rich Plasma therapy (PRP) can address a multitude of indications, from fine lines and wrinkles to sagging skin and stretch marks. It’s especially effective for tightening of skin around the eyes and treating dark circles, and hand rejuvenation. Here at the Institute, we are also seeing fantastic results for hair regrowth in female and male pattern hair-loss.

For fitting in to that dress …

Z-Lipo is the most advanced new non-surgical technology for fat reduction and body contouring. Freeze away exercise-resistant stubborn fat from the waistline, neck, upper arms and thighs safely. Quick and effective, there’s no needles, no surgery and no downtime. Combine it with Zwave, a shockwave action to tighten loose skin.
