Cellulite is horrible isn’t it? Sadly, it’s something our skin seems to be addicted to so we just have to grin and bear it. Or do we? Well my most recent beauty discovery argues to rid us of that yuk wrinkle-like skin on our legs, tummy, arms and even smoothen the skin on your face. Icoone is a machine that does just this. The only machine in Ireland is in Renew Clinic who not only house this miracle machine, but numerous experts in skincare to help you with any skin issue. And I have a few. But I’m starting with cellulite, so Icoone is what I’m going to begin with. So here begins my Cellulite banishing diary with thanks to Renew…

Icoone diary week one: May 9th 2016

The Icoone experience is not exactly comfortable, but no pain no gain right? But I have to say the environment in which this treatment is delivered is absolutely pristine. I have been attending Renew on Hatch Street Dublin for about two weeks now and going somewhere that is exceptionally clean and professional, as well as being greeted with a smile and a welcome, is just lovely.

Icoone anti-cellulite treatment

Scary looking cellulite machine. Slightly alien-looking….

You firstly, step into what can only be described as an unattractive white body stocking that looks like it could only fit a Barbie. The label says “large” but you start to question your own self-worth when you try to work out how you’ll fit in it. But you do. Lying on a treatment bed, the nurse will use the machine over any areas of concern, so for me that’s my legs and tummy. The top of the machine is like a suction pad that is rolled over your skin. Now, here’s what I need to explain. Yes, it sucks on your skin, but it also sucks the life out of your cellulite or the odd bit of fat. Sounds gross, works miracles. Here’s another way of looking at it. Imagine taking your Dyson and running it over your skin. It’s not the most relaxing experience, but the nurse will alter the intensity to suit what you can take. I’m on about five right now, and I went after an hour’s work out on my upper legs, so forgive me if I don’t go into detail on the pain factor.

But I am now four sessions in and I am used to it. My skin is starting to smoothen nicely thank you. I have been measured so I’m fascinated to see what the inch loss is. But so far so good. My skin feels very smooth, and at the end of the week I am going to take another measurement to see the progress. So stay tuned for next week’s Icoone diary…

Icoone for a flat stomach

 

icoone® is the perfect solution for every skin problem, it meets the real needs of the body and stimulates the connective tissue through the multi micro alveolar stimulation in order to give immediate and long-lasting results.

icoone® has the perfect solution also to treat abdominal laxity thanks to its Abdomen Toning Protocol. Thanks to the deep tissue massage, icoone® can stimulate the activity of myocytes – muscle tissue cells – in order to make the muscle more elastic and toned. Skin slackness will also be eliminated thanks to the stimulation of collagen and elastin.

Very frequently a relaxed abdomen also presents stretch marks due to a decrease in collagen synthesis. icoone® has a solution for that too. Through the use of Robomini – the smallest motorized head in the world – you can stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in order to treat stretch marks and improve their appearance.

The result will be perfect:

Toned, firm abdomen skin!

NO LINE ON THE HORIZON

There has never been more pressure to look good, and anti-wrinkle injections –
which relax tense facial muscles, minimising the fine lines and wrinkles that appear
near the eyes and on the forehead, resulting in a fresh and relaxed look – can be an
excellent, cost-effective treatment to improve appearances with a natural result.

The number of practitioners offering the treatment have never been higher, but
just as you wouldn’t trust your hair in the hands of any old barber, it’s important to
do your research before you open your wallet.
Ask around friends to see if they or their partners have tried the treatment and,
if so, if they would recommend it. Our tip for the go-to anti-wrinkle wizards? Dr John Quinn of RENEW AESTHETIC CLINIC (renewclinic.ie)

Caroline Gordon - Renew Clinic

CAROLINE GORDON, RGN

Caroline graduated as a general nurse from the Mater Misericordiae Hospital Dublin in 1990. Having spent time travelling, she worked in various different nursing roles before being recruited in the year 2000 by one of the leading aesthetic clinics in Dublin. She was in fact, among one of the first aesthetic nurses in Ireland at the time. She has spent the last 15 years working in the aesthetic/ cosmetic field. She has worked in a wide range of clinics in Ireland during this time including managing her own for 7 years and as a result has gained a wealth of knowledge, experience and understanding of the aesthetic industry.

Caroline is constantly training and updating her skills and keeps up to date with the latest treatments and new techniques by attending medical aesthetic conferences both here and abroad. Her specialist area of interest is in dermal fillers and she has spent the last three years working alongside a Dermatologist in the Beacon Consultants Clinic carrying out aesthetic procedures.

Qualifications include:

  • Screening, using mole mapping to help detect and prevent skin cancers including melanoma.
  • IPL and laser treatment for red/blue veins, pigmentation, rosacea and hair reduction.
  • Microdermabrasion
  • Skin peels – cosmetic and skin problems.
  • Dermal fillers for fine lines and wrinkles
  • Radio frequency – skin tightening

“It is vital for any nurse working in the field of aesthetics to keep up to date with the latest techniques and practices involved in treating clients. It is an ever changing and fast paced industry and up to date knowledge is key to treating clients safely and effectively”

This month I’m going to focus on one of our favourite skincare ingredients  that we are all hooked on here at Renew Clinic…..Retinol!

Retinol blog Renew

Skincare trends come and go but one of the staple “superstars” for advanced skincare and skin health is retinol.

It is a form of vitamin A and belongs to a family known as retinoids. Retinoids provide a foundation for great skin, by unclogging pores, boosting collagen production and speeding up skin cell turnover. The result of this is, fewer blemishes, decreased fine lines, reduced pore size and a more even skin tone with pigmentation spots reduced, what’s not to love!

So what exactly does Retinol do?

It slows the ageing process by encouraging skin cell turnover and increasing collagen production deep down in the fibroblasts of the skin. It will also stimulate the skins natural hydrators – glycosaminoglycans (GAGS) and natural moisturizing factor (NMF) therefore decreasing fine lines, plumping the dermis and reducing sun damage. It helps clear and prevent acne by reducing the production of oil in the skin and lifting of dead skin cells from the skin surface so that oil won’t get trapped and cause infectious spots.

When starting to use retinol you may find your skin can get irritated this is perfectly normal and as you use the ingredient more and more the skin will adapt to the activity of the retinol so it is important to build up a tolerance for retinol. Start by using retinol maybe twice a week at night and increase as the skins reaction reduces. There are many different strengths of retinol, the higher the concentration of retinol the more reaction you will experience so you need to be advised by a medical professional before you use this ingredient to  check that you have the correct level to suit your skins needs.

Retinol should only be used at night as it can make you skin more sun sensitive so it is vital to use a broad spectrum SPF daily, preferable one without any oil. We recommend IMAGE skincare Daily Matt oil free SPF 32.

For the ultimate anti ageing result you would  use it in combination with other ingredients like antioxidants, peptides and SPF. This combination will give you your ten hours sun protection daily and significantly slowdown the ageing process.

Here at Renew we sell a number of different products that contain different strength of retinol, IMAGE skincare, ZO Skin Health by Zein Obagi and we are really excited to announce the arrival of Skinceuticals. We offer FREE skin consults with our nurses so please do come in and make an appointment to learn more about retinol or any of our skin care brands or ask any questions through our blog, we’d be happy to answer them!

See you soon, Nicola

Want to be vein free for summer?

Sclerotherapy Renew Clinic

Unsightly leg veins are a common problem for both men and women, the world over. These “spider veins” are rarely more than a cosmetic concern but can cause embarrassment and lack of self confidence.

Sclerotherapy is the most effective way to treat these veins. Micro injections of medication into these veins cause the vein to weaken and be re-absorbed by the body. A reduction can be seen after 1 treatment but a course is recommended for full clearance.

Want to be vein free for summer 2016? Now is the time to start!

Book a FREE consultation with one of our expertly trained nurses to see if this treatment is right for you! Contact Martina or Shannon in our Dublin and Naas Clinic on 016619261/045901111 or email us at info@renewclinic.ie  or or book online at your own convenience.
