So you’re getting married. Congratulations! As a bride-to-be, you already know the joy and stresses of planning a wedding! While everything else falls into place, it’s time for you to take care of yourself in preparation for the big day, to ensure that you are radiant, relaxed and refreshed. We offer several treatments at Faceworks, so it is a good idea to have a detailed consultation first, so we can understand your concerns and suggest the best course of action for you. To allow time for the treatments to achieve optimum results, we recommend a consultation four to six months before the wedding.
Starting your skin care regime before your wedding date begins with an initial consultation at our skin clinic with either Dr Brenner for medical skin consultation (e.g. active acne, rosacea, facial thread veins, eczema etc.), or Aesthetician for a Helios Computerised Skin Analysis and advice. Helios consists of an in-depth skin photography system, using polarised, UV and regular filters, which shows issues on the skin's surface, and underneath the surface, to determine the best possible treatment programme to suit your skin.
Consultation fee Dr Brenner: €55
Helios Computerised Skin Analysis: €40
We also recommend body skincare including exfoliating, softening glycolic acid products to prepare the skin for the wedding day especially if you are planning to use fake tan on the day. These skincare products can increase skin radiance, reduce dryness and add smoothness and suppleness to the skin. Prescription medicines are available following consultation with Dr Brenner as needed, for skin infections, active acne, rosacea, dermatitis, etc.
The Dermapen is the latest development in medical skin needling. This treatment can provide great results, improving the appearance of acne and chicken pox scarring, reducing fine lines and wrinkles,stimulating collagen, elastin and fibroblasts, and improving overall texture and radiance. Electronically powered sterile miniature needles vertically pierce the skin to help break up scars and lines, and trigger a repair process that sees increased collagen, elastin, fibroblasts and repair cells. It also minimises pore size and encourages skin tightening, lifting and rejuvenation.We use a vitamin enhanced serum during the treatment when thousands of tiny microscopic channels are open in the skin, nourishing the skin from within.We use a numbing cream, making the treatment painless. After the treatment we apply a cooling gel hyaluronic acid mask to soothe the skin. Dermapen can be used on the face, neck, decolletage, hands, and stretch marks/burn scars.
Prices start from €195.00 per treatment. Extra area treated €50.
Here at Faceworks we use an extensive range of facial peels to enhance your appearance.
Superficial peels such as fruit acid and milk acid peels (Mask peel and Milk peel) refresh the skin tone and texture, remove dead skin cells, and stimulate skin renewal, brightening skin texture. Mela peel addresses pigmentation specifically. These peels have minimal or no downtime.
Medium peels (TCA peels) are stronger, and can reduce lines, pigmentation, refresh dull skin and rejuvenate the skin. These peels cause skin redness, flaking and skin shedding for a few days, so this must be factored into your working/social life.
Deep peels (phenol) are very harsh on the skin and have significant downtime, swelling and sun sensitivity for months afterwards, so we don't use these here at Faceworks. A well-chosen course of lighter peels can achieve similar results without the pain!
Peels can be used on the face, neck, decolletage and hands.
We use the NeoStrata and Dermaceutic range of peels at the clinic.
Helios skin analysis, two full-size pre-peel preparation products and first Mask/Milk peel, costs €115. See peels section for full pricing details.
Lip enhancement with dermal fillers
Hyaluronic acid lip fillers are becoming increasingly common as way to define and enhance the lip shape, cupid's bow, add lip volume, or support the corners of the mouth. The results can be subtle or more dramatic, depending on personal preferences. Lip fillers can cause mild swelling for up to 7 days after treatment, and there may be a tiny bruise, so if you are thinking of lip enhancement, we recommend leaving at least 4 weeks between treatment and the wedding day. Lip fillers can be dissolved if you don't like the result, but this hasn't happened at Faceworks yet, as Dr Brenner's expert, gentle technique ensures a smooth, natural safe outcome. The results last about 6 months, and can be repeated/added to as needed. The prices are:
- 0.5 ml of lip filler is €220.
- 1 ml of lip filler is €320.
Small blemishes like skin tags, leg thread veins, face thread veins, warts, milia, cherry haemangiomas (raised red blood vessel spots), etc can be safely treated by Dr Brenner. Prices start from €95.

These can be used to smooth and reduce lines on your forehead, between your brows, and crow's feet areas. They can also be used to reduce "smokers’ lines/bar code lines" around the mouth. As these are prescription medicines, a personal consultation with Dr Brenner is needed to assess suitability. The treatment takes up to two weeks to see the full effects, and we offer a free top-up treatment 2-4 weeks later if needed. There is a small chance of a tiny bruise with this treatment, so we recommend leaving at least two to four weeks between the final treatment and the wedding day, to avoid having to use concealer if there is a tiny bruise.
Prices: €245 to €345.
These are sterile gels which are injected with tiny needles into the face, neck, or hands to soften lines and folds and reduce wrinkles. They can replace lost facial volume or support, and can also be used in the lips. Prices start from €395.
