Procedures: Ultherapy and IPL
“My motto is no injections and no knives, so I chose Ultherapy, which is an ultrasound with a higher frequency that is applied to the face. It makes your body produce its own collagen to the level it would have done naturally when you were in your 20s. I get it done in Renew Clinic, and I like that it’s non-invasive and natural, and one session lasts for almost two years .

micro peel vs microdermabrasion
do you really know the difference?
Words by Tanya Grimson
February 28th, 2017
There is always a lot of talk surrounding skin peels and microdermabrasion when it comes to beauty but there is also a degree of confusion in regards to what both treatments actually entail. This is accompanied by trepidation and fear stemming from the word ‘peel’, as flashbacks of Samantha in Sex and the City with her burning skin come to the fore of your mind. Does beauty really come at such a price? With that in mind, we figured the only way to find out the real truth behind the processes was to try them out for ourselves and see if these processes are something we should approach with caution or if they have been harshly judged without real substance. And of course, what really is the difference between the peel and microdermabrasion?
Not wanting to opt for any beauty boutique, we decided to work with Renew Clinic due to the calming fact that the founders and technicians are registered medical nurses who know what they are doing. Note of advice, never ever proceed with an unregistered practitioner without medical expertise, even if they have a good deal on, as this could ultimately result in your loss as you rectify whatever damage may have been done to your skin. So, myself and maven46 co-founder, Agata (who I have to admit was little braver than me) decided to test both treatments and compare the processes and results so you too can have a real life experience of the truths, the myths and the reality.

Facial peels in Dublin that won’t leave you red-faced
Facial peels aren’t as scary as they sound. If you have that Sex and the City scene in your mind, the one where Samantha’s face resembles a disintegrating tomato, you need a little updating.
Peels these days come in varying strengths and can be personalised to your skin’s needs. They work by chemically exfoliating the first few layers of your skin, and revealing the younger skin beneath. Fine lines and pigmentation exist on these few layers, so you remove a few of those too (if you that is something that matters to you).
Jeanette from Renew was interviewed by the Sunday Independent in regards to the use of Lip Filler. Click here to read the full article.
Jeanette Dunne is the co-owner of Renew Aesthetic Clinic and a registered nurse. While beauty is her business, she says she must have a genuine reason to put filler in someone’s face. “It’s a moral obligation. If a young girl comes in with full and proportionate lips, I won’t fill them.”
Dunne is also concerned that we’ve yet to see the long-term implications of over-filling lips at a young age. “It could have an impact on the tissue, there are a lot of sensory nerves around the mouth.
“When someone comes in to me, I tell them about the things that can happen, from a blocked artery to an allergic reaction or necrosis of the tissue. This is rare, but it can happen, especially if the product is in inexperienced hands.”

Ultherapy is a non-surgical ultrasound treatment that stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin deep within the skin. It gradually lifts and sculpts the skin from the inside out without surgery or downtime, and is tried and tested for use in the upper and lower face, neck and décolletage.
It is scientifically proven to stimulate new collagen and elastin which can reverse the signs of ageing. It creates a lift that can last for over a year and the treatment only takes between 60 and 90 minutes with no downtime.
It has also been tried and tested by our own Lorraine Keane at Renew Aesthetic Clinic and you can follow her own experience on the treatment below.

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)
