Christina and Ryan of FILO Laser & Aesthetic Clinic in Ballincollig.

Let FILO be your bridal skincare planner

As you embark on the journey of planning your wedding, each detail, from the invitations to the first dance, is carefully choreographed with precision, and your skin should be no different.

FILO Laser & Aesthetic Clinic in Ballincollig are encouraging you to come and let them be your wedding skincare planner. Christina, Ryan, and the entire FILO team are not only skilled nurses but also experts in ensuring your skincare and treatment plans are perfect as you prepare for your special day.

On the big day, it's not just the delighted couple who should glow; the entire bridal party needs to shine. Nurse Christina is a skincare goddess and will help you to be ready for your close-up. They have a treatment for every skin concern and it is imperative that you give yourself as much time as possible ahead of the big day so you can start a great skincare journey.

I have tried and tested FILO and can attest to their knowledge when it comes to all things skin. They will work with your budget to plan a precise goal to glow!

The consultations are free and here are just some of the services of interest to a wedding party:

Painless laser hair removal

Their machine can help zap the hair for a honeymoon or the big day. The treatment is ultra quick too with no downtime so you could pop in on your lunch to remove your lip or underarm hair.

GLOW facials

It is so important to keep your face refreshed and away from all that wedding stress. But why stop there? Regular facials improve tone and texture which will ensure your MUA has less to do on the day.


Say no to heavy pigmentation, sun spots, freckles and more as you prepare for your big day! A course of these groundbreaking facials will ensure that your skin and decolletage are free. Among many other things, the treatments target wrinkles, scars, acne, rosacea, port-wine stains, skin discoloration, sun damage, visible signs of ageing, enlarged pores, vascular lesions, and signs of melasma. The results are clearer, smoother, and younger-appearing skin.


This is a non-invasive skin tightening treatment. One session (30-90 minutes depending on the treatment area) can deliver outstanding results for most patients, with integrated cooling pulsed RF and vibration to aid patient comfort. Just book in for a treatment and go right back to life as usual.

Results improve over time and can be long-lasting when part of an annual skin rejuvenation maintenance programme. I would advise having your treatment four or five months before the big day. This is perfect for mothers of the bride or a bride worried about skin laxity on her face or body. Treats wrinkles and loose skin on the face, around the eyes and on the body.

Tone it up

FILO have some of the most powerful toning machines that when combined with a wellness plan can help you tone up stubborn areas.
