I’m not vain but I like to take care of myself. For some reason, if you’re a woman, you get so much unwanted hair (underarm, legs, etc). I used to shave, wax and pluck but having a good dermatologist, you get consistently reminded that those quick and cheap ways aren’t the best option. We all know the side effects, stubborn ingrown, itchiness, and dark underarms – which we all do not want, at all.
Finally, I have found the best and hassle-free solution for my underarms. I visited Skin Philosophie in BGC – 3rd Floor B3 Bonifacio High Street, 9th Avenue corner Lane P, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City. I was consulted by the most helpful Dr. Kyla Talens and was advised of what to expect during my laser hair removal session – pain, possible side effects, etc.
Skin Philosophie uses CUTERA which is the preferred laser treatment brand of top beauty doctors all over the world. This specific machine, Cutera XEO machine has different settings (hair removal, vascular, skin genesis). Aside from hair removal, the same machine can provide instant results versus inflammatory acne, brown spots for elderly people, leg and facial veins, angiomas and rosacea or the diffused redness on the face.
The session was quick and painless. It just has a tingling sensation but its not over the top that will make you request the trained nurse to take a break. My next session is in 4 weeks and I can’t wait to see the results!
In case you are wondering, the number of sessions needed depend on your hair color, and type, body area and skin tone. Ideally, 4-6 sessions are advised. It is best of course to consult an expert so make sure you contact Skin Philosophie for an appointment. I swear, the rates that they offer are super good deals!
On the same day, I also had a relaxing body scrub with massage. Here in Skin Philosophie, they understand your privacy and has separate rooms for every treatment/patient.
With the pollution and humidity in Manila, its best to detoxify your skin with a body scrub. So glad that it is being offered here at Skin Philosophie – definitely a one stop shop for everything that your skin and body needs.
I love how my skin felt after, super smooth and silky. I also felt very rejuvenated afterwards and the bumps on my back disappeared! Will definitely make this a monthly habit.
How about you, what do you do to take care of your body?
