Skin Rejuvenation and Body Treatments

There are a few types of rejuvenation treatment to choose from. The first involves removing dead or tired skin cells, such as skin peels and microdermabrasion. These treatments disrupt the top layer of skin cells and encourage the skin to revitalise and become stronger and healthier, speeding up cell renewal

The second type of treatments are minimally invasive, such as anti-ageing injections, and allow the skin to appear plumper and fuller by reducing the appearance of wrinkles or loss of facial volume. Micro-needling and Radio frequency stimulate collagen and elastin production, tightening the skin and smoothing out lines & imperfections.
If you are still unsure of what will suit your skin, we offer free skin consultations to help you pick the best treatment plan.

Cavitation is a method of liposuction. Cavitation destroys fat cells by using low frequency sound waves. Once the fat cell is destroyed, the fat is discharged between the cells where they are turned into protein and then changed to free fatty acids and glycerol. Free fatty acids are moved to the liver where they decay and are removed from the body while glycerol is used as energy. Great for pockets of fat and cellulite.
30 mins £49

Laser Lipo

A very popular spot fat reduction treatment that shrinks the fat cells using cold lasers.
Works especially well for active individuals who are trying to lose inches of those stubborn fatty areas. Its completely pain free and only takes 30 minutes. And best of all, its a fraction of the price of the surgical alternatives!!
30 mins £49

Botox and Fillers

Botox is Allergan′s trade-name for the Botulinum Toxin, which is used to eliminate facial lines and has been used medicinally for many years. Botox is the most effective skin way to tackle deep lines and wrinkles, and stops new lines forming by relaxing the facial muscles and reducing excessive facial movements. It works well for frown lines, forehead lines and crow′s feet.
Hyaluronic fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid, which is found in almost every living being.
When hyaluronic filler is injected into your skin, it acts as a sort of cushion to bring more volume back to them. It also attracts water to the area to provide even more soft volume.
Martina Pirklova is registered with the General Dental Council and uses the highest quality, approved products so you can be sure you’ll get the best and safest results.
Botox starts at £95 for one area
Fillers £250
Profhilo £700 for two sessions

HIFU face & body

HIFU body (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is a single treatment. This innovative and unique technology provides a non-invasive alternative to liposuction and other weight loss surgeries.


HIFU works by delivering a 24-line matrix of focused energy at a depth of 1.3cms to target and break down specific areas of fat in the fastest possible time. The high frequency of the ultrasound wave results in heating under the skin to effectively destroy fat cells and tighten skin. The damaged cells are then flushed from the body via a natural removal process that continues for up to 3 months.


Any fat cells treated with HIFU will not return. Although HIFU offers a permanent effect; coupled with a healthy diet and exercise program, will ensure even better results.  A fat cell will expand to four times its natural size before multiplying, therefore, how much you eat and exercise will affect your long term body shape.

HIFU vaginal tightening

With age, child birth and weight gain the collagen fibre within the vagina can begin to lose elasticity. This revolutionary new treatment uses safe technology that can now painlessly improve the vitality of vaginal tissue. It is highly effective in rebuilding skin elastin whilst tightening the muscles of the vagina. Vaginal rejuvenation is a one off treatment that takes just 20 minutes. It is a progressive treatment meaning that full effects will be experienced 2-3 months post initial procedure. The results will last approximately 18 months to 2 years. Clients will experience an improvement in stress incontinence, vaginal dryness and general tightness of the vagina.

Lower Face Lift £249
Full Face £299
Full Face and Neck £399
Eye Lift £169
Vaginal tightening £350

Fat freezing

Fat freezing, or cryogenic lipolysis, is exactly like what it sounds – fatcells are frozen for a period of time in the aim to reduce them, and it’s a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. … Patients are required to sit for 1-2 hours while cooling paddles suction the skin and crystallise fatcells. Cavitation is usually done after to help break down the fat cells quicker. Jen from Rejven8 will be running regular HIFU & fat freeze clinics at Wantage.

Thread Vein Removal

Thread vein removal at Bare Essentials with Dr Martina Pirklova


Microsclerotherapy is the treatment designed to manage problem veins from telangiectasia to small reticular veins. The best treatment for these small veins is using a sclerosing agent such as Fibrovein. Lasers are sometimes used to treat thread veins in the legs, but comparative trials show microsclerotherapy to be superior. (Laser is superior for the face.) If you also have larger varicose veins, then treating these is often also necessary to control the appearance of more thread veins.


Your initial consultation is very important for assessment of veins you are concerned about but we can generally treat any minor thread veins on the body and legs (microsclerotherapy is not indicated for any veins below your ankles and on your feet).


Fibrovein is the trade name of a detergent based chemical called sodium tetradecyl sulphate and is licensed for treatment of varicose veins and thread veins.


Fibrovein blocks the veins by irreversibly damaging the blood vessel walls. The solution irritates the lining of the vein causing the walls of the vein to stick together. Blood stops flowing through the veins which are then absorbed by the body’s natural defence mechanism.


The area of thread veins to be treated is cleaned with an alcohol or antiseptic.

An ultra fine gauge needle is inserted into the lower layer of the skin. Once a vein has been entered the solution is injected slowly for 15 – 20 seconds until the area of thread vein disappears or skin bleeding / or a visible pink reaction occurs.

The needle is removed and pressure applied to the injection site with sterile gauze . The process is repeated on other areas of thread veins in the same leg. Once the procedure is complete, compression stockings are applied.

The procedure takes approximately 45-60 minutes.


· Take a brisk walk immediate post treatment

· Wear the compression hosiery day and night for first 3 days and daytime only for 2 weeks

· Avoid extreme temperatures avoid sun exposure

· Avoid flying for 4 weeks

· No leg waxing for 6 weeks

· Avoid high impact exercise for 2 weeks

· Keep mobile encouraging daily walking


You will be able to return to work almost immediately.


You can commence driving as long as the discomfort allows.


Some bruising may appear and can last anything from two weeks to three months depending on the size of the blood vessels treated. The treated areas can look worse before they improve as a result of the bruising. With patience a good result is achieved. .

Some patients need more than one treatment to get the best results. I would recommend further treatment after three months if any remaining veins have not disappeared.

Whilst there are no perfect results, 60% of people experience a very good result cosmetically. Patients find that over time a few more thread veins may appear and it is common for an annual or bi-annual tidy-up visit.

The common side effects and complications are:

Bruise, Raised Red areas, Aching in the leg, Brown lines or pigmentation marks on the skin, Matting

Very rare complications associated with this treatment are allergic reaction, ulcers, migraine, deep vein thrombosis, inflammation and stroke.


Careful consideration is given if you have any of the following problems:

· Presence of varicose veins

· immobility

· uncontrolled diabetic

· pregnancy and breastfeeding

· known allergy to Fibrovein

· history of deep vein thrombosis

· ischemic heart disease and arterial disease.

· thrombophlebitis

· varicosities caused by pelvic/abdominal tumours

· patients on warfarin

· patients with pacemaker

· infectious skin conditions

· obesity

· planned long flights


Generally speaking, we recommend to plan for 2-3 treatment sessions approximately 2-3 months apart. It takes up to another 3 months after your visit before you see the final result.


This is simply 15 minutes long appointment when we carefully assess those veins your are concerned about and advise you whether this treatment will give you a good results. We also measure your legs for your hosiery provided after the first treatment. There is no charge for your consultation.


The length and the number of treatment sessions required is very individual and we will try to create a treatment plan based on your needs. Please try to be prepared for 2-3 treatments as a minimum. These appointments are typically 2-3 month apart.

1ST SESSION (including high quality hosiery) from £300
