A Fab Facial Plus Diamond Peel At Skin Sanctuary
Along Metropolitan Ave. San Antonio Village, Makati, you will find the next best derma clinic in town, Skin Sanctuary.
I went there last Wednesday to have a facial since it's holiday season I thought I'd have a really good pampering for my face. In fact, I wasn't disappointed!
I was greeted by Cang, the pretty marketing specialist of Skin Sanctuary and these other ladies. But
since it's only 2pm, I wasn't able to meet their board-certified dermatologists. But maybe in the future, I will.
The place is not big but I'd say it feels very accommodating and homey and clean.
What I liked about their facial is the application of glycolic acid prior, so that the outer-outer layer of the skin, if you will, is peeled, revealing your baby skin. But purposefully, it is to help the skin soften out before pricking the whiteheads and blackheads.
|It's a lil bit, well, not painful, but kinda itchy, the glycolic. But it only means that it works.|
We did a bit of steaming too, glycolic application then steaming in order to soften the comedones, so they will then be easy to pull out. The skin naturally expands when warmed, so there.
Next step is of course, pricking session. Ehm, we all know that it could get painful but tolerable but that's what we pay for beauty's sake, tiis-ganda :)
After pricking, we did high-frequency treatment, shown below, which they say is to disinfect and to remove all the skin impurities left.

And this high-frequency treatment, I don't think other clinics have this service, eh? And it's actually included in Skin Sanctuary's Cleansing Facial on promo for only 349php now! Isn't that awesome?
Now, the diamond peel. I always loved having a diamond peel, as it gives your skin such a glow and ultimate smoothness you can only experience by having it.
|Diamond peel, in action. Their diamond peel is on promo, only 799php.|
|Pic from my phone. Cold hammer, to close the pores after the diamond peel. They have very techy tools.|
Then, the mask. Moisturizing Mask.
|The net makes it easy for any peel-off masks like this. Genius.|
Now me AFTER the three procedures done, facial, diamond peel and face mask. On the right pic, with Cang of Skin Sanctuary.
