THE ISSUE: ACNE
THE FACIAL: Anti-Acne and Brightening Facial Bliss

THE ISSUE: DULLNESS
THE FACIAL: Hydrafacial with Wet Diamond Peel and Vitamin Infusion
THE CLINIC: Lumiere Skin and Spa (Quezon City, Taguig)
For skin that could use an ultra nourishing boost, there’s the Hydrafacial with Wet Diamond Peel and Vitamin Infusion. This facial aims to deeply hydrate and cleanse the skin, giving it a powerful layer of protection against everyday wear-and-tear. That means if you’re constantly slogging through pollution and bad weather, this is what your skin needs to get healthy again.
Each 75- to 105-minute session involves a series of facial massages. In between, you’ll be treated to deep skin cleansing, facial steaming, and an aloe vera cream application. To remove any dirt that may be clinging on, a careful extraction will also be performed. Lastly, a wet diamond peel will be applied to slough off dead skin cells and lock in nourishment. The peel will be infused with three specialized serums: salicylic acid, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin C. Together, they fight bacteria while tightening and brightening skin that lacks its usual luster. It’s a tried-and-tested combo that’ll leave you with healthy, happy skin every time!

THE ISSUE: FINE LINES AND WRINKLES
THE FACIAL: Carbon Whitening Laser Facial
THE CLINIC: Finessa Aesthetica (Timog, Katipunan, Parañaque)
For skin that’s in desperate need of firming up, there’s the Carbon Whitening Laser Facial. This anti-aging laser facial keeps dullness, wrinkles, and roughness at bay to help you maintain a youthful glow. While aging in itself is a perfectly natural process we all go through, treatments like this help us do it as gracefully as possible.
Each session takes between 45 minutes to an hour. It involves deep skin cleansing, the application of black carbon cream, and laser therapy to reduce melanin production. The laser further removes impurities and damaged cells to reveal a softer, brighter complexion. To top it off, an aloe vera serum infusion/mask is applied to calm your post-facial skin.
