One of the things that I will never forget is my skin care ritual. Even a person who is very keen on this, is not exempted of having skin problems. I have a lot of skin issues, the fact that I am reviewing some beauty products is one of the things that trigger my skin problems. There are some effective products for me but not for you and vice versa. Some skin issues cannot be treated at home and needed a dermatological advice.
I always hear of Luminisce from my blogger friends and have seen them posting about how great their experience was with Luminisce. I am really curious about it that’s why I got excited when I was invited to have a treatment.
Luminisce Skin and Laser Clinic is located at the heart of Bonifacio Global City, just in front of St. Luke’s Medical Center. I haven’t had a hard time finding the clinic, but it was really heave traffic during my appointment because of Jeepney strike. I was welcomed with their friendly and accommodating staff of the clinic. They even offered me a drink and something to eat. I guess they knew the hassle I got because of the traffic. I really liked the interior of the Luminisce clinic, very classy, it has a royal-themed furnishings and very relaxing ambiance. Before the procedure, the staff handed me the assessment form to fill-up. It includes questions about my skin-related concerns, medical history and some questions.
As I mentioned earlier, I had a lot of skin issues. I am very insecure with some women who were blessed to have a smooth and fair skin. One of the things that made me appreciate Luminisce is that they are carefully assessing the clients. Unfortunately, Dra. Kaycee Reyes was not around when I visited the clinic but there was a dermatologist present that time. It felt like I am talking to a friend whom I confided all my problem with. I enumerated all my skin issues such as blackheads, milia, warts, syringoma, back acne, dark underarms. According to her, there are a lot of triggering factors on why I am having these, but these are all normal and can be treated. They also informed Dra. Kaycee about it and gave my dermatologist the treatments to address all my problems.
According to them, warts can be removed after two weeks of Luxury Facial and back acne and dark underarms can be treated after 4-6 sessions to see the results. First, I would like to share my experience while having the most luxurious facial in the world, Luminisce Luxury Facial.
Luxury Facial is the Luminisce‘s special treatment that deep cleans pores and remove bacteria-causing acne, trapped dirt, and excess oil, while minimizing pores up to 2 weeks.
- The nurse removed my makeup and cleansed my face. Afterwards, she gave me a very relaxing facial massage. Well before going to the clinic, I just had an eyebrow makeup, BB cream and lipstick. I had no problems if she remove my makeup because I really vacated my schedule for the treatment.
- The next step is the Sonophoresis, a process wherein ultrasound waves seep nutrients into the skin, removing blackheads and whiteheads at the same time.
- Then after the procedure that involves electric currents are safely pass thru my skin using a special machine to lift and revitalize the skin. There’s also a gauze placed above my face.
- Finally, an oxygenating machine (my favorite part) that releases cool, pressurized oxygen into the skin to hydrate and open pores.
I also had a Full Radiance Facial with Half Body Massage. This procedure thoroughly cleanse and brighten the skin with a program that unclogs pores, lightens dark spots and improves skin discoloration and the appearance of fine lines. The procedure also includes infusion of rare minerals, vitamins and enzymes deep into the skin hence, immediately restoring the skin’s healthy state.
As I mentioned above, I also have a back acne. According to the dermatologist, It can be triggered with the chemicals I put on my hair that makes my skin irritated. To address this, they also did the Coquille peel wherein they will use a Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA’s) derived from natural fruit and food extracts that can contribute to effectively normalize the skin’s natural exfoliating and hydrating properties by shedding the rough skin and restoring the skin’s moisture levels. Honestly, it immediately dries my pimples at my back but as they mentioned, it needs a few sessions to effectively remove it. One thing I noticed was that it dried my pimples after day 1 of the treatment. I can’t wait when the pimple marks will be invisible.
For my underarms, the Skin OXYGlow, is the treatment that infuses oxygen and hydrating nutrients deep into cells that immediately rejuvenates the skin by improving blood circulation. It also encourages collagen production to protect the skin for harsh environment. Afterwards, the Skin IontoBooster, a treatment that dramatically reduces the wrinkles and lightens skin through a non-invasive procedure wherein electric waves go into deeper layers of the skin with no damaging side effects. The procedure is also pain-free, but just like my back acne problems, it takes more sessions to improve it.
After all the treatment, I really felt how soft and smooth my skin is. One of the things I wanted to achieve is to confidently go out even without wearing any makeup. No amount of skin care can improve the skin problems or can be effective unless you remove first the issue. I was really happy because finally I found the skin clinic for me. I really can’t wait for the warts removal treatment because it is one of my recurring problems. After a week of my treatment, I didn’t experience any irritations or marks (usually I have marks from the removed milia).
Thank you Luminisce and Dra. Kaycee for the super pampering treatment. Now I know why Luminisce is the most talked about clinic by my beauty bloggers friends.
I highly recommend Luminisce Skin and Laser Clinic because it is not just they have all the solution for all the skin problems, they also have the eyes and ears to carefully assess and listen for every clients concern. To add more, they also have the modern machines that really work to improve your skin. It can be expensive to afford this treatment but mind you, the worth speaks for itself. If you really want to improve your skin, might as well invest on a good dermatologist and clinic. Be a #SKINvestor and book your appointment now!
