South William Clinic

I am in a very unique and privileged position where part of my day job is to trial all that is trending in the world of beauty and beyond. So to say I’ve clocked up some grá for a selection of Irish salons, spas and clinics is somewhat of an understatement. So, if you’re in the market for some R&R or expert bespoke treatments, here are some of my favourite heavenly haunts.

South William Clinic, Anti-wrinkle Injectables, two areas, €295
ASIDE from being aesthetically beautiful — I could shoot a year’s supply of Instagram content in this salon — there is literally nothing this city centre clinic doesn’t offer.
Teeming with experts, the only trouble you’ll have is deciding what treatment is for you. If you’re looking to invest in facials, lasers, peels, fillers or body-focused treatments, they have something for everyone. Next on my list is their anti-wrinkle injections.

Bare Beauty Salon — Dibi Milano Hydrating Treatment, €85
I’VE often lay on a treatment bed at this Rathfarnham salon with rivulets of tears streaming down my face from a laughter/crying fit — in truth, a visit here sometimes feels like a glorious therapy session.
Maria, the owner, (right) has healing hands and she has no desire to shove injectables in your face, rather she works with your own natural beauty. You can find everything from laser hair removal, to lash extensions and micro needling. I am a huge fan of the Dibi Milano Facial’s — sheer opulence! See barebeauty.ie.

Beautique Beauty Studio, Bellamianta Spray Tan, €28
A SPRAY tan is transformative, don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. I’ve often walked into my favourite salon as a below average three out of 10 and walked out a tanned 10. I don’t even mind stripping down to a paper thong because each and every one of the team at this south Dublin salon know exactly how to sculpt my body with my favourite Bellamianta elixir.
I’m only short of leaving with spray-on abs. They also have some of the most talented nail artists in the country. See beautiquebeautystudio.ie.

Midas Touch Skin & Laser Clinic, Microneedling starts at €250
THIS little oasis is the perfect place to recharge and enjoy some R&R. Leaders in microneedling, this treatment is suitable for anyone over the age of 20 — the younger you start the more your skin becomes accustomed to the production of collagen so the more youthful it will stay. Just FYI, it can take up to six months to see the
fabulous final results.

Neelu, Lumi Lift Treatment, €300
IF you want results and straight-up no-nonsense advice, Neelu will impart that information to you as if she was talking to one of her oldest and dearest friends.
Championing skin health, 30 years of experience means she uses this expertise to create well-informed, bespoke treatments that yield long-term results. She believes in tailoring each treatment to a client’s specific needs, carefully selecting the correct products and treatment thar are right for you and your skin. You need to try the Lumi Lift treatment that uses light therapy and micro-currents to lift sagging muscles of the face and neck — no drastic and painful surgery required.

Unique Day Spa, Infrared Bike, €45 per 30-minute
THIS slice of heaven offers treatments for couples and small groups who like to be pampered like an A-lister.
I recently popped in to try the InfraShape Horizontal — think cardio exercise on a luxury bike chair. Stepping into a plastic bag to up the sweat factor, I laid back (you cycle lying down) popped some tunes on and through advanced vacuum compression and infrared technology, allowed the machine to burn my fatty pockets and cellulite. Benefits include body rejuvenation, weight loss, fat cells elimination, detoxification and relaxation. See uniquedayspa.ie.
