I’ve been pretty carefree for most of my 20’s not thinking about starting a beauty routine or protecting my skin. It was only in my thirties that I started to think about taking care of my skin.
At 35, the first time I ever had a facial done was when I was 34 and it was also only then that I started to use a facial wash and moisturizer. As I feel my age, I’m starting to show more attention to my skin.
I was looking forward to some pampering at the newly opened holistic skin clinic, Luminisce . Despite it being December and with all the traffic I decided to make a trip to Luminisce in BGC just right in front of St Lukes Global Hospital.
Having only been practicing for a year, Dr Kaycee Reyes and her team have become quite well known and already have celebrity endorsers. Dr. Kaycee herself has such beautiful skin and after consulting with her you’re put at ease.
Dr. Kaycee has studied in London and Singapore to perfect her craft with a fellowship in Thailand. She was very accommodating and answered all my questions. She asks you what your problem areas are and if asked will also make some suggestions. I shared that my problem areas were my stretch marks and dark circles under the eyes. We also touched a bit on weight and sagging of the face.
During my consultation Dr. Kaycee gave me a bit of a crash course on skin. She also showed me pictures of before and after shots of procedures related to my concern. For my session, I decided to try their Luxury Facial and Clear Laser Peel with a Skin Infuse Booster. The whole process would take about an hour and a half.
I proceeded to the room and immediately you’re relaxed in the rich golds. There was also soothing music playing to add to my luminous experience.
Here’s me, before my procedure.
My attendant, Myca was very gentle and she was able to answer all my queries on the procedure and other questions that I had. She started me off with the Luxury Facial where I received a facial cleanse and massage. Ahhh…
Then a sonophoresis to remove whiteheads and blackheads, a galvanic lifting to lift and revitalize my skin and lastly an oxygenating facial with Vitamin C to help open up my pores and lighten and brighten my skin.
After my Luxury Facial I had a Clear Laser Peel and started off with the first wave, whitening organic mask, micro carbon for skin rejuvenation. The 2nd wave was to minimize oiliness and the third wave to tighten the pores. The last wave was a a bit surprising as I felt like there were sparks on my skin which turned out to be a machine targeting the carbon. The Skin Infused Booster was done to lighten pigmentation which were the dark circles under my eyes.
Dr. Kaycee had stressed the importance of using sunblock daily and advised me to apply every 4 hours even when at home. As a work at home mom in front of a computer most of the day it was important for me to apply it since I was also exposed to UV rays from my computer. The last part of my treatment was the application of sunblock.
After my treatment, my skin felt so light and was glowing. I certainly felt like it had lightened and brightened. With the 3 procedures done I felt like every layer of my skin was treated and revitalized.
Aside from their Skin Revival Program they also have Laser Solutions, Hair and Healing, Age Defy, Skin Lift, Shape and Sculpt, Hair and Healing and more.
