I was once a model before I stopped and jumped into the world of blogging. One of the reasons was, I am growing and aging. I think it's best to leave that kind of industry to the newer set of kids because I had my fair share and I am contented with it. It was weird to tell that I became more serious on taking good care of my skin because blogging was more interactive than the previous part-time job that I had. Also, attending event was more about talk time and yes, I needed to be more presentable at all costs starting with how my facial skin will look.
One day, I personally decided to visit Luminisce and try out their services. I never had my derma schedule for the past 2 weeks because of my job and I thought this will be a great deal to try out another derma clinic to be pampered. The clinic is located in 2nd Flr. Mercury Drug Bldg, 32nd St., 4th Ave, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City.
As I have arrived in the vicinity, I met my friend in there and was introduced to Dra. Kristina "Kaycee" Cuevas Reyes. Dra. Kaycee had more than a year experience as a Dermatologist who perfected her craft by studying in King's College in London and St. John's Institute of Dermatology earning her diploma in the said field. Also with her fellowship experience being held in Singapore and Thailand, she was considered as a top notch and a name to be remembered in Skin Care.
She also shared that the Mission of their clinic was to provide Luminisce Holistic Skin Innovations giving a multidimensional perspective on how beauty should be felt by their patients, inside and out.
As we sat down, she asked me on what are my skin problems. There were actually 2 problems that I am worried about; One was my deep facial scars and second was my nose's keloids. As a nurse, I was able to understand all the medical terms she shared plus the short course about skin and how to take good care of it were really helpful too. As she diagnosed my skin fully, she provided me 5 treatments in one single session. These were Luxury facial, Coquille Peel, Acne Surgery, Silvercure Laser for Pigmentation and Rejuve Clear Laser for Acne Scars and Pigmentation. These treatments lasted for 2 1/2 on which I fully enjoyed and excited to share.
As I headed straight to the room, I was accompanied by my attendant Mica who was very knowledgeable about all the machines and treatments. Being a "bibo" kid, I never failed to ask her questions about what's going on and she always had answers to it! Of course! If your attendant knew what she was doing then you will feel at ease and that's what I felt all throughout the entire treatment.
Warning: this post will be about my face's evolution all throughout the treatment phase and please bear with my selfies. :)
Here is my photo before all of the treatments (selfie #1 pa lang yan ah.)
My treatment started with cleansing my face. This is to wash away all of the dirts and maximize the effects of the treatment. This luxury facial will help minimize the pores for 2 weeks and continuous therapy will help make your skin smooth and glowing.
After the pimples, black and whiteheads were pricked, my skin underwent a superficial laser to close the open pores. Of all the lasers that I saw, this one was quite different because of 2 ball-like shaped instrument. As it roamed around my face, it massaged the face producing a relaxing vibe.
For the final step for the luxury facial, they have used an oxygenating machine that releases cool and pressurized oxygen to hydrate and open pores. This help revitalize each damage cells altogether with the help of nourishing vitamins to be applied later.
The second treatment was called Coquille Peel, this therapy was using Alpha Hydroxy Acids derived from natural fruit and food extracts. It effectively normalized my skin's natural exfoliating and hydrating properties by shedding the rough skin and restoring the skin's moisture levels.
In conjunction with the Silvercure Laser was the Rejuve Clear Laser which sightly corrected deep acne scars and other skin imperfections. It gradually closed the damaged area promoting tightness and fixing of the affected areas of the skin. The result will make the area inflamed but will decrease gradually in 2-4 hours. Sessions should be around 5-8 so as the effect will be visible.
Here is the final selfie for this post.
