Let’s face it, although sunblock and sunscreen help in keeping our skin protected while under the sun, most of the time we still need extra hands from experts. For my monthly skincare visit, I only trust SKIN 101 Clinics because of the quality and affordability of their services.
SKIN 101 Clinics is headed by Dr. Oliver Diaz for Cosmetology and Dr. Jenie Francisco-Diaz for Dermatology. They have 10 branches in Metro Manila and are looking into opening more clinics this year.
When SKIN 101 Clinics invited me to experience their Revlite Toning Facial, I immediately agreed because of the many good reviews I’ve been hearing from my friends. Revlite is a non-invasive treatment to remove scars, sunspots, pigmentations and other discolorations while keeping it firm and smooth.
Before the Revlite treatment, patients undergo a regular facial which involves thorough cleaning, massage and removal of any whiteheads, blackheads and such.
After the facial, I was brought to the Revlite room. At the start of the procedure, my eyebrows and hairline were taped since exposure to the laser will cause the hair to lighten and burn. I was also given stress balls and was required to wear laser-protective goggles – a bit scary but as they “BEAUTY HURTS.” haha.
To my surprise, I expected the pain to be worse than facial pricking. There was only a slight discomfort (think a rubber band lightly tapping your skin) and a burning smell from the exposed facial hair. The procedure is done 3 times covering the whole face and lasts about 15-20 minutes.
The Revlite Toning Facial is only Php 3,000.00 per session but they have a Php 15,000.00 rate for 7 sessions (5 + 2 free). Intervals should be done 2-3 weeks after.
So if you need your skin to be checked or just planning to pamper yourself, try SKIN 101 Clinics. They really are competitive in terms of service and price. 🙂
