R S C —
Welcome to Rejuvenate Skin Clinic - a holistic skin treatment practice located in Cookstown, Northern Ireland.
Commence a journey with RSC and you'll be treated with an individualised approach, utilising a skin treatment methodology known as corneotherapy. The methodology of Corneotherapy requires a greater understanding of the skin than established aesthetics and beauty therapy training provides. Its focus is the repair and maintenance of the skin barrier defence systems rather than the simple application of product.
At RSC, Catherine endeavours to address the cause of your skin conditions, not merely treat the symptoms.
Clinic Director Catherine is a CIDESCO qualified skin treatment therapist and practicing corneotherapist. She is a member of the IAC (International Association of Corneotherapists) and an MASCED accredited (Melanoma and Skin Cancer Early Detection) therapist.
Originally training to be a nurse at QUB, Catherine sought an alternative career path. She discovered her passion lies in facilitating clients to manage problematic skin concerns long term. The philosophy of RSC lies in providing a unique service, enabling clients to gain an understanding of their skin throughout their time working alongside the clinic.
Education lies at the core of Rejuvenate Skin Clinic. Catherine has undertaken advanced training from Belfast, Dublin, London and Australia. She is committed to CPD training. Catherine is currently studying towards a BSc (Hons) Degree in Nutritional Therapy with ION in London.
"The quest for skin health requires commitment and compliance with a holistic approach. There is no such thing as a quick fix or miracle cure. The line to your goal may not be linear. Understanding this is key upon embarking on your skin treatment journey. Your skin concerns can be persistent but so can you."

A thorough skin analysis is key to determine the best course of action to help you towards the management of your skin concerns. Consultations at the clinic are corneotherapy centered.
Corneotherapy is an individualized approach to skin care and treatment, following a logical path that investigates and defines the causes of skin conditions before selecting appropriate interventions and therapeutic applications in a sequence that achieves the best outcome. This contrasts with the more simplistic approach of treating symptoms without determining the causes. Catherine will gather a thorough skin timeline to help conclude your true skin type and develop an in-depth programme so you have a better understanding of your skin, and a clear pathway to help you achieve your skin goals. Consultations are essential before booking treatments or purchasing products.

Every skin is unique and is constantly changing, therefore, your skin treatments will vary at RSC. The 'one size fits all' approach is not adopted here. Catherine tailors your treatment upon every visit, and modalities used will be dependant on how the skin presents on each given day.
True skin rejuvenation cannot be achieved without working on a cellular level, and Catherine does just that. Combining prescriptive blended skincare, and targeting dermal tissues with a custom routine utilising devices such as LED, Microcurrent, Dermal Infusions with Ionto/Sonophoresis and Microneedling, skin concerns such as acne, rosacea, ageing and pigmentation can be effectively targeted over time.

Low level light therapy or photobiomodulation is based on Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology and is the application of light energy to the body for therapeutic benefits. It promotes a natural photobiochemical reaction similar to the process of plant photosynthesis. The energy delivered by the LEDs has been shown to enhance cellular metabolism, accelerate the repair and replenishment of damaged skin cells, as well as stimulate the production of collagen — the foundation of healthy, smooth skin. Research has shown that LED light therapy may help smooth skin texture, improve skin firmness and resilience, increase lymphatic system activity, restore skin’s natural cellular activity, and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and superficial hyperpigmentation. The treatment is for all skin types, and is non-ablative, non-invasive, painless, and requires absolutely no downtime. Clients can return to their normal activity immediately after the treatment.
Medical microneedling is a procedure designed to enhance and improve skin complexion via activation of the skin’s natural regenerative processes which stimulates collagen synthesis. With expert precision, technique and timing, medical microneedling triggers growth factors for building new collagen. Very tiny needles are used to penetrate the top layer of the skin vertically causing localised and controlled damage without substantially affecting the structure of the epidermis. The creation of controlled microchannels in the skin instigates the regeneration of skin cells via a natural process of healing. Awakening the fibroblast that lies within the deeper layers of the skin, healthy collagen is naturally produced.
The gentle stimulus provided by medical microneedling is considered far more effective than many other more invasive and expensive skincare treatments. It is a quick and easy technique with little downtime. After a course of treatments, skin structure is visibly revitalised, rejuvenated, replenished and regenerated.
