3 Week Manicure at Pearl Beauty, Nassau Street, Dublin 2.

We at Pearl Beauty are proud to be one of the first to offer the 3 week manicure at the very special price of 40 Euros!!

The 3 week manicure involves a tidy up of the cuticle area and the nails filed to the desired shape. We have a wide variety of coloured gels from Creative to choose from, and proving most popular at the moment is the High Shine Purple, as it has been all over the cat walks recently.  We finish off with a relaxing hand massage and some time in our  heated mitts. This really helps push much needed hydration into our over worked hands.  This treatment takes approximately 1 hour so is an ideal lunch time “fix”.

Treat your Feet between Pedicures

The feet are an important part of the body which we can neglect at times. They support us all day long and we definitely do not look after them enough.

Here are some tips on how to look after your feet at home between your Pedicure appointments at Pearl Beauty Salon.

  1. Bath your feet at least once a week. Add some tea tree oil/ wash to the warm water as it is naturally anti- bacterial and cleansing. Or add Epsom salts if you find your feet are prone to swelling.
  2. After the feet are cleansed use a foot scrub to get rid of any flaky, dry skin, leaving the feet refreshed and smooth. You can mix up your own scrub at home with coffee grains/ brown sugar and olive oil. For a more luxurious treat for your feet, buy Jessica Zen Spa foot scrub at Pearl Beauty Salon.
  3. For the next step, you will need a hydrating and softening cream to massage into the feet. This will work to hydrate the skin. Pay particular attention to the skin around the ankles and the soles of the feet. You can mix up your own foot cream with honey, almond oil and cocoa butter. This can also be left on overnight with cotton socks for a more intensive effect.
  4. Your feet should now be nice and soft, which is perfect for doing cuticle work. Rub some oil around your cuticles, gently pushing them back. You can choose from a range of oils, lavander, peppermint etc. Try to carry out this step at least twice a week, leaving your oil in a convenient place to use. 
  5. Try to cut/ file your toe nails once a week, always cutting and filing in a straight line across to prevent ingrown nails.
  6. If you are suffering from fungal toe nail infections, ingrown toe nails, verrucaes or anything on the feet you are not sure of, please visit a chiropodist sooner rather than later.
  7. Always wear shoes that are the correct size and that support your feet properly.
  8. When painting your nails always use a base coat before colour to prevent discolouration of the nail plate, and never leave your colour on for more than two weeks.
  9. Try not to walk often in your bare feet as this can harden the skin on the soles of the feet, and always walk from heel to toe. 

Dental Implants from €1500 at Pearl Dental and Beauty, Dublin 2

Dental implants at Pearl Dental, Dublin 2 are more affordable than ever, with fees from €1500 for multiple units. And these are Ankylos implants, one of the leading implant manufacturers in Europe, not mini-implants or obscure cheaper implant types. The fee for a standard dental implant at Pearl Dental includes everything- assessment, surgery stage, restoration and review visits. There are no hidden fees to surprise or disappoint, and we pride ourselves on our committment to service and customer satisfaction. Please note that a definite quote can only be provided after assessment, as there are many factors that influence the treatment plan, and therefore the cost, of dental implants.

A dental implant is generally the most complete and effective method of replacing a missing tooth, and is a remarkably civilised procedure, generally requiring no time away from work, (except the treatment appointments), usually involves little or no pain, and is now an incredibly reliable procedure in the hands of a competent and experienced dentist who is prepared to take the necessary time and care to ensure success. Dental implants are not a procedure to be undertaken during a weeks holiday to foreign climes, as the planning, consent and undertaking of such procedures requires more than a cursory visit, and dental implants that go wrong often require immediate intervention, which can be much more difficult to access if the dentist is 3 hours away on a plane!

Many successful and competent dentists carry out dental implant procedures in other countries, but if they tell you that you only need a weeks visit, move on to the more conscientious dentist who accepts the fact that implants need careful planning, careful explanation and consent, and a high level of technical skill to be successful. Wherever you decide that your implants will be carried out, ensure that the dentist is expecting at least 5 or 6 visits from initial assessment to final restoration, and ensure that they give a warranty of at least 5 years on all the work, with no further cost to be incurred by you if anything goes wrong. 

Here at Pearl Dental, Dublin 2, we guarantee all of our dental implants, fixtures and crowns for a minimum of 5 years (subject to certain criteria), and don’t expect you to pay for anything should there be a failure in that timeframe.

Finally, be aware that dental implants require excellent maintenance regimes, both by you, and your dentist. Here at Pearl Dental, we advise all of our dental implant patients to see our hygienist, Joann, on a regular basis to ensure that the implant is maintained impeccably, along with the rest of the teeth, and to ensure that the patient’s oral hygiene is optimised to maximise gum health.

If you require further information on dental implants, contact us at 01 679 0625, or via e-mail at reception@pearltreatments.ie.

Facial Aesthetics at Pearl Dental and Beauty, Dublin 2, and also Newbridge, Co. Kildare

As many of you are aware, here at Pearl Dental Practice and Beauty Salon, we aim to please, and are committed to bringing you as complete a service as possible under one roof, making it possible for you to arrange just one visit to source all your dental, beauty, skincare and product needs. In addition to this, we also offer a facial aesthetic service, allowing you to say goodbye to those lines and wrinkles with the minimum of fuss.

Following a consultation with our Facial Aesthetician, and Cosmetic Dentist, Dr Paul Redbond, your concerns and requirements can be assessed, and appropriate options discussed and prescribed as required. As injectable line and wrinkle treatments are a prescription only product, it can only be prescribed and administered by a suitably trained and qualified professional, and for optimum results, appropriate dosage and use is imperative. In some cases, injectable treatments are not an appropriate treatment option, and in these circumstances, we will advise of other possible treatment options that may address your concerns and requirements.

You have all heard of some of the procedures and products used for the management of lines and wrinkles, which include muscle relaxing injections, Collagen based fillers and more. We can provide any of these where appropriate, and can advise as to the best treatment option for your specific case.

In simple terms, the treatment options are grouped into 2 categories- Dermal Fillers, such as Restylane, Juvederm, Softline and Teosyal, and Muscle Relaxants, or ‘muscle freezing injections’.

The Dermal fillers are exactly that, and are usually based on Hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in almost all animals. The product is injected into the skin, just underneath the region of the line/ wrinkle, and immediately ‘fills’ the area to lift the line and reduce it. The muscles in the area are still fully functional after filler treatments. The treatment can sometimes be undertaken with topical anaesthesia only, but for more complex cases, dental anaesthetic injections are used to numb the area before treatment commences.

Generally these products are used for the lower part of the face around the nose and mouth, but other areas can also benefit from this type of treatment. Most dermal filler treatments would last between 6- 18 months, and can be repeated as required.

The Dermal filler treatments can also be used for enhancement and recontouring of the lips, and reshaping of the nose and other facial areas, and because the products are naturally broken down in the body over time, you cannot be left misshapen or disfigured as a result of this treatment.

Muscle relaxing or freezing injections act directly on the muscles responsible for most lines in the upper section of the face (forehead, between and around the eyes), and block the nerve endings which cause the muscle to contract.  The active product is a toxin, but in the doses required for aesthetic treatments, is considered completely safe, and much larger doses are used for medical procedures than we would ever be using.

The treatment is not instant, but takes effect over a period of approximately 2 weeks, after which it will generally last between 3- 6 months before a top-up is required. Usually, no anaesthesia is required for the administration of muscle relaxing injections.

For more information, you can contact us at 01 679 0625 in Dublin, or in Newbridge 045 431 676, or via email at reception@pearltreatments.ie.

10 Simple Tips on Beating That Cellulite Just in Time for Summer, with a little help from Pearl Beauty Salon, Dublin 2

Inch loss body wraps 50% off at Pearl Beauty Salon, Dublin 2

Are you sick and tired of that “orange peel” look? Unfortunately for us women, (yes, it’s quite a rare thing to see a man with dimpled quads and glutes- and I will explain why later), we are cursed with the “cellulite genes”.

 So, if a woman eats healthily, exercises etc, cellulite can be prevented from forming and can be kept at bay. But in this day and age, in our unhealthy fast food and junk food comsuming Irish society, statistics show 95% of women are suffering with the disorder. Yes suffering! You do not have to be overweight either to have cellulite, even on the thinnest of models it can sometimes be seen. So what is cellulite? And why do we get it?

Cellulite is a disorder of the connective tissue in the subcutaneous fatty layer of the skin. Our connective tissue contains fat cells which store the fat we eat and the toxins from our intake. In a woman’s body, fat cells are arranged in large upright chambers, allowing for large amounts of fat to be stored. In a man’s body, fat cells are arranged in small slanted chambers, therefore allowing small quantities of fat to be stored. A man’s body is also made up of more muscle to fat ratio, as opposed to a woman’s composition. Anyway, if you eat very unhealthily, do not exercise and intake quantities of alcohol, cigarettes, caffeine etc, where do you think all this fat is stored? Yes, in the large fat cells partly composing our bodies! Over time the fat and toxins in these cells build up and start to harden giving the dimpled effect.

Not only does an unhealthy body contribute to a woman’s cellulite problem, but we also have a helping hand with the hormone Oestrogen. The joys!   

The good thing is though, if we put our minds to it and decide we want to beat this awful “orange peel” look, we can! And in this recession time, I have put together a few simple low- cost tips on how you can banish your cellulite, in a matter of weeks or months(depending on the severity).

1 ) Firstly, the most important rule of the process is??? Drink plenty of water. You need to be drinking two litres of water a day to flush out all of those fat cells of fatty deposits and toxins, and also to keep the skin hydrated and looking healthy and smooth.

2 ) Everyday whilst having your shower, exfoliate for five minutes on the affected areas to soften the fat cells under the skin and to increase the circulation of blood and waste. Always scrub in upward motions towards the heart. You can make your own scrub at home with olive oil and coffee grains, it works wonders!

3 ) Cut out any bad foods (especially caffeine) and start eating more vegetables, fruit, fibre and fish, especially green veg, which contains enormous amounts of antioxidants. These types of foods won’t get trapped or harden in fat cells.

4 ) Excercise! Not only will it keep your body youthful, slim and toned, it will speed up your metabolism and waste flow out of the body and prevent fat from storing and hardening.

5 ) Cut out cigarettes and alcohol. These are the worst offenders! They are full of nasty toxins which accumulate in the body and help cellulite take over. Never mind all of the other health risks involved!

6 ) Buy yourself a body brush. They don’t cost much and using it on the affected areas twice a day, before showering if possible, will help you no end in banishing the cellulite. Use in upward stokes towards the heart and make sure to brush about 50 strokes on each area, each time. Try to get a brush with quite strong bristles. You may find it stings to begin with but this will lessen as you get used to it.

7 ) The second thing you need after your shower to apply to the affected areas is a cellulite cream/ gel. Massage this firmly into the skin twice a day, again in upward strokes.

8 ) When in the shower, alternate the temperature of the water from hot to cold , back again and so forth. Doing this is great for the circulation and getting everything moving under the skin.

9 ) When you are on the way to beating your cellulite why don’t you reward all your hard work with a nice treat. Body Wraps are an excellent way to help banish cellulite and they are pampering as well! Here at Pearl Beauty Salon we offer a fantastic anti-cellulite inch loss body wrap, which will boost your confidence even more and definitely have you ready for the summer. At a low cost of only €22.50 at the moment, it is the perfect treat for your new programme.

10) A glass of hot water and lemon each morning or herbal tea is a great anti-oxidant and will help you get rid of those toxins and nasty fats even quicker. They aid digestion and a few cups/glasses a day will not only detox your body but can actually stoke up your metabolism.  Plus there are so many delicious and tasty flavours out there at the moment.

Finally, get them legs waxed and grab your bikini because you are now ready for a cellulite free summer!
