Start with a skin analysis by an aesthetic specialist. At Eye and Face this encompasses digital assessment, coupled with an in-depth medical history and expert assessment by Dr Janice. This allows us to assess your baseline skin health, prioritize concerns and put together a bespoke plan to deliver timely results.

Good skin doesn’t just happen overnight – it requires a consistent approach. Start with the low-lying fruit and make good skin resolutions –  that means ditching the wipes, drinking water and using sunblock.

Effective skincare involves the use of targeted and researched active ingredients delivered in the right dose with the correct formulation. We are all unique and that means the super-serum that your friend swears by may not work for you.

Using your home protocols religiously will get you 65% of the way to a glowing complexion. but now its time to turbo charge…

Now is the time to start a course of peels.  Dr Janice finds that Irish skin tends to have underlying sensitivity issues so the challenge is titrating the treatments to to deliver quantifiable improvement without causing further skin issues. That means taking the time to assess your skin anew at every visit and customizing your treatment to different facial areas.

Don’t forget to pay attention to backs and arms. These areas are prone to blemishes and Keratosis Pilaris (chicken skin) – both conditions eminently treatable with the right formulations. We can advise you on at home products as well as clinic peels to allow you so show off that exquisite dress!

Peels and facials are typically delivered once a month as the skin renewal cycle is approximately 28 days. At this point there will be a visible difference in your skin. If you wish to consider a ‘tweakment’ now is the time to discuss it with your doctor. Anti-wrinkle injections typically last 4 months and Dr Janice likes to review new clients approximately two weeks later for an optional top-up. This allows us to precisely deliver facial relaxation without a frozen appearance!
