After my #UproarCamsur2015 event, when I got home I started getting pimples. I don’t know why I suddenly had the outbreak.It maybe because of stress, but I am not so sure. But there’s one thing I am sure of: “I need a to visit a skin clinic.” So I decided to do a research on nearby clinics and their blog reviews. I decided to trust Skin Philosophie. I’ve read a lot of good reviews about them. I went to visit their clinic as soon as possible. Their clinic is located in 3rd Level, The Fort Strip, 28th Street corner 7th Ave., Bonifacio Global City (BGC), Taguig City 1634.
The moment I entered the clinic, I instantly felt relaxed. The ambiance of the clinic was really relaxing and comforting. I immediately felt the stress leaving my body. While waiting, they even gave me free tea and biscuits. The choice of background music was awesome too. I could stay there all day.
First, I tried the “Skin Philosophie Signature Facial.” It’s a comprehensive multi-step facial. First part was cleansing using a hypoallergenic cleanser or a degreasing wash for those with oily skin. After that, there will be a sensual aromatheraphy which is an invigorating lymphatic massage and galvanic facial muscle toning. After the massage, it will be followed with scrubbing which uses a specialized electronic device. Instead of pricking, Skin Philosophie uses this device because it is a much less painful (in fact, it was painless for me) and less traumatic means of extracting blackheads and whiteheads. I personally experienced “pricking” and believe me, I have a high pain tolerance, but this method is quite painful. Bearable but painful. After scrubbing, next is microdermabrasion. It is a high-powered equipment that efficiently scrapes off and sucks out the build-up of dead skin together with superficial blackheads and whiteheads. Lastly, a high frequency device will close the pores and they will also apply a toner that will restore the natural skin pH. It’s quite unbelievable that in just a few minutes, you will have a skin that’s fresher and more luminous appearance. Compared to my other facial experience, the result is not instant. After the facial, you would really see the difference. My face was a lot fairer and smoother. This is not the case on my other facial experience. Although it was effective, you will see the result after a few days. With Skin Philosophie, I got instant results. And even after a few days, my skin still looked fair and smooth. I started to have less pimples than before my visit in Skin Philosophie. It’s highly suggested that you do this once a month. Here’s the best part, the price is only Php 1,500. You can experience luxury skin care with great results at a reasonable price!
After the facial, I decided to try their “Lancaster Renewal Peel and Hydro-Jet Peel with Vitamin C Ionto-Infusion for the Underarms.” Underarm darkening is really tricky to treat. The type of treatment of treatment required depends on the severity of the case. In my case, according to Dr. Kyla, since my underarm is light, 4-6 sessions of this treatment would do the trick. The treatment uses chemical peels to improve skin color. Gentle peels are more appropriate for mild to moderate darkening while deeper types of peels work for more severe cases. the Lancaster Renewal Peel utilizes a special AHA formation that dissolves superficial skin cells that contain melanin. Patients, like me, who cannot afford the downtime of deeper peels prefer this instant whitening treatment. After the treatment, you can immediately see for yourself the results. It becomes visibly 1-2 shades lighter right after the treatment. After the Lancaster Renewal Peel, it would be best if you also try the Hydro-Jet Peel for better results. The procedure will exfoliate the superficial dead skin cells to reveal the smoother and lighter skin underneath. It will really give an instant smoothening effect which you can see right after the session. To further lighten the skin, Vitamin C Ionto-Infusion is added. The iontophoresis device aids in the delivery of vitamin C which is a powerful anti-oxidant and lightening agent, to the deeper layers of the skin. The Lancaster Renewal Peel will cost you Php 1,800 while the Hydro-Jet Peel with Vitamin C Ionto-Infusions is Php 1,000. But if you avail the Lancaster Renewal Peel, patients can get the hydro-jet peel treatment for free. (Read till the end of this post to find out how to get additional discount! 🙂 )
UPDATE: The Lancaster promo is until the end of August 2015 only. The additional discount is still up. Read till the end of the post to find out. 🙂 (Updated September 7, 2015)
I didn’t made a mistake for trusting Skin Philosophie. My experience even after the treatment was really great. Even after the treatment, it is important that you can ask your doctor for follow up questions you forgot to ask. With Skin Philosophie, you can easily contact them through their website! You can either leave a message or talk to their chat support! It is my first time to actually came across a skin clinic with chat support. How cool is that? Plus, I also love the price of their treatments. Their treatments are really effective and most of them are instant but on a reasonable price. You can experience luxury without ripping your wallet. Taking care of your skin shouldn’t always be expensive. Overall, my experience with Skin Philosophie was great, so I am going back to visit them again this August. Keep posted for more reviews! I will post a different review for every visit.
We cannot just trust anyone with our skin. But you are not trusting just anyone. Dr. Kyla M. Talens, M.D., DCD, MSc, an aesthetic dermatologist, a graduate of Medicine in the University of the Philippines. She had a diploma in Clinical Dermatology in Cardiff University in the United Kingdom, and Master of Science in Clinical Dermatology in the same university. She also had Fellowship in Dermatologic Laser Surgery in Mahidol University – Ramathibodi Hospital, Thailand. So you see, she’s not just any dermatologist. I am glad I met this doctor. She is really good in her field. I really had a positive experience and unbelievable results with Skin Philosophie.
GOOD NEWS! If you visit Skin Philosophie and avail any of the two treatments I mentioned above, you can get a “PHP 500 DISCOUNT” just mention “The Lifestyle Avenue” and you can avail this cool discount perk. So what are you waiting for? Head on to Skin Philosophie now and get to experience it yourself! Because taking care of your skin doesn’t always have to be expensive.
