Beautiful skin starts with healthy skin. To maintain and improve skin health, an effective, professional pharmaceutical skincare regimen is essential.

LIGHTENING

Skin Lightening Products

As part of Image Skincare we offer specific products for the treatment and prevention of pigmentation. These products can be used as a stand alone treatment or are perfect to use in conjunction with IPL.#

Image skincare has a graduated approach to pigmentation which starts with Total Skin Lightening Serum. This product is formulated with Kojic Acid and Rumex. Total Skin Lightening Serum is both prevention and cure – Kojic Acid lightens the surface of the skin while Rumex has a tyrosinase inhibitor action, preventing more pigment from forming in the skin. This product is recommended before, during and after IPL to prevent and treat mild pigmentation. It can be used on higher Fitzpatrick’s to reduce the risk of hyper/hypo pigmentation post treatment. Total Skin Lightening Serum is recommended for continual use after IPL courses for long term prevention – keeping your client in your clinic! For deeper pigmentation we have the Total Skin Bleaching Serum and the Lightening Cream RX. These are both physician only products contain hydroquinone which is the best lightening agent on the market for more stubborn pigmentation. These are short term use products, generally used for a maximum of three months at a time.


SKIN PREPARATION

Pre and Post Treatment

We believe in really preparing the skin before treatment and most importantly providing clients with products post treatment to heal and repair the skin. Pre-treatment is simple with our top selling product, Ageless Cleanser. This cleanser is based on 12% acid and can be used prior to treatment to rid the skin of dead cells which can block optimal light absorption with IPL.

Post treatment products are available in a kit which gives your client one week’s supply of safe easy to use product. This kit can be used post laser, micro-dermabrasion or chemical peel and is designed to alleviate irritation after treatment.

While we might not rack up as many air miles and as long hours as them, if there is a skincare range that helps give fatigued models a radiant rested complexion, we want it. Erin O’Connor has declared her love for Vital C by IMAGE skincare, formulated to calm and brighten easily irritated skin. The creamy face mask is her essential for a glowing complexion-and with fashion season in full swing, we bet she is getting through tons on it”

Triona’s Most Wanted – 23 January 2011

“Elegant Erin has declared her love for Image Skincare’s Vital C range, which keeps her pale Irish skin glowing. It’s available in treatment and product form at Renew Aesthetic. “It’s formulated for damaged, dry, dehydrated and sensitive skin,” says Sinead, a qualified nurse at the clinic”

ACNE

The Image Clear Cell Line can be used as a stand alone product or used in conjunction with professional treatments. The Clear Cell line can treat oily problem skins, non- inflamed acne or inflamed acne.

The products are based on salicylic acid to purify and reduce inflammation in the skin. We also offer medicated products which contain benzyl peroxide to treat infected pustular skin.

Our acne line is made to a pharmaceutical grade meaning it is more active and more effective than other products on the market. Image offer simple, effective and affordable products for the treatment of Acne at any age.

“Having suffered with adult acne since I was 21 years of age I’ve used every conceivable product on the market from creams, topical & oral antibiotics to the contraceptive pill. None of which have been a lasting solution.

Renew was recommended to me by a friend who, in much the same position, had suffered acne all of her adult life and also in her teens. She had benefited remarkably from the treatment and was delighted with the results as the treatment also addressed her anti-ageing concerns.

I have since had 3 peels and the tone & texture of my skin has changed entirely for the better. All of my pores have tightened and my acne is no longer the first thing that people notice about me.

The IMAGE skincare products are full of active ingredients and a little goes a long way with them. Having used Dermalogica in the past and been “happy” with them I will never look back. I can now incorporate the Clear Cell with the Ageless products to ensure that I’m addressing all of my skin concerns.”

FAQ

What is the difference between Cosmeceutical Skincare and over the counter products?

At Renew Aesthetic Clinic we carry Image Skincare, a line of products that are developed and formulated by internationally recognized chemists working together with a board of physicians. Their philosophy is to use superior ingredients to achieve outstanding results. Image Skincare is dedicated to offering safe products without the use of chemical preservatives like parabens. The biggest difference between over the counter and a cosmeceutical skincare is not only active ingredients and their amounts, but the level of penetration into the skin. Medical grade products have the ability to penetrate the epidermis or top layer of skin to hit the dermis or lower layer of skin. This is where Collagen, Elastin and Pigmentation lay as well as where our new skin cells are produced. Since the loss of Collagen and Elastin in the dermis are what age us, we need to use products that can penetrate to that level.

How long will it take for me to see results with Image Skincare?

One of our benefits is that clients see immediate skin improvements with the initial treatment. Since our products are so effective and consist of such concentrated amounts of active ingredients like anti-oxidants, cell-stimulating ingredients, and protective properties, you will see a dramatic change almost instantly.

In order to treat pigment disorders or the signs of aging, a longer treatment plan will be necessary to achieve a good result. Your aesthetician will discuss options for you in order to achieve the maximum benefit for your skin condition

Nowadays there is a lot of hype about the so-called "peptides". What exactly are peptides?

Peptides are chains of amino acids which are designed to penetrate the skin and their function is to inform or communicate to our cells how to perform particular functions. Longer peptides are called proteins.

In addition to our clinically proven active ingredients, you will find peptides incorporated into the latest formulations in many of our products. It is our belief that your skincare regimen should be based on a variety of ingredients; you will find peptides throughout our products, but always in conjunction with other active ingredients to achieve the best result.

Do you perform testing on animals? Do you use any other harmful ingredients?

Image Skincare has not and will never test any products on animals! Newly formulated products undergo a thorough laboratory testing followed by field studies tested by humans, and all of our products consist of safe ingredients.

In addition we replaced all chemical preservatives, like parabens, with natural and plant-derived preservatives.

  • Products not tested on animals
  • No chemical preservatives
  • Fragrance composed with 100% essential oils
  • Respect of the environment
  • No Silicones
  • No Parabens

What is the difference between a chemical and physical sunblock?

Chemical sunblock’s contain ingredients which absorb harmful UV rays. This process takes place in the actual layers of the skin. Here, the chemical sunblock reacts with the harmful rays and transforms them into a different kind of energy, mostly heat.

A physical sunblock works like a shield to reflect the actual UV rays, keeping them from penetrating the layers of the skin. All of the Image Skincare SUN products contain a physical block.

In order for a sunblock to be effective, it needs to offer broad spectrum UVA/UVB sun protection, like all of our SUN products. In addition to providing the best protection, all of our SUN products are also moisturizers which can be used daily even if you are not exposed to the sun.

I experienced some redness and flakiness after using the Ageless line. Is that normal?

If your skin was never on a professional skin treatment protocol, you might experience some sort of redness, dryness, or flakiness after a couple of days using the Ageless line. This is our most potent anti-aging line which effectively treats the signs of aging skin. In the beginning your cells will speed up their cellular turnover; dead skin cells will be exfoliated and fresher, younger looking and firmer skin will soon be visible.

These effects are perfectly normal and are part of your skin renewal process. To ease these signs you can use some of the orange Vital C products alternating with the Ageless line. Use your SUN moisturizer daily. Try to use the Ageless repair crème in the beginning every other night, then every night after the second week
