A New Beauty Spot For Marikeños: Skinclique Wellness and Aesthetic Center

img_5430

Having a healthy skin is a great advantage in many aspects. But how much are you willing  to pay for it? Growing up being meticulous with my skin, I used to think that the higher the price of the clinic services, the better the results would be. However, I have proven myself wrong. 

 

Just to get my face thoroughly cleaned, I have to schedule an appointment two weeks in advanced to my previous clinic. The price is crazy expensive that I have thought of selling my kidney to purchase their services and prescriptive products. LOL! Although the result was truly promising, I found it really difficult because I live in Marikina and I have to commute to SM Megamall. Going home was awfully harder because of the traffic in rush hours. 

 

Thus, I have to search for a clinic that is accessible within my vicinity; something that my close friends, co-teachers, and social media readers would be able to visit too. 

 

SKINCLIQUE: Fairness that goes skin deep!

Then a friend of mine recommended a new clinic that is just near Bayan Marikina  the capital of my beloved city. I was a bit skeptical because I do not easily trust a clinic unless it has an in-house doctor, nurses, and well-trained aestheticians. I want a clinic that gives a cozy and “Instagram worthy” atmosphere to clients (insert hashtag kaartehan goals). Despite being dubious, I decided to give it a try. I went to the cliniclocated in front of Our Lady of La Naval Chapel in San Roque, Marikina City.

 

My First Impression 

I visited the clinic to inquire about the services it offers and observe the ambiance. Stepping into the clinic, I cannot lie about the neatness and simplicity of its interior designs. The lighting, curtains, wall accents, sofa chair, room for skin procedures, machines, and other equipment are new and appealing to the eyes. The clinic smells good and everything looks sanitized. But what really blew me is the in-house doctor and nurse. I don’t intend to demean other inexpensive clinics, but some I visited before only have a doctor once or twice a week. Which means if something unexpected happens, no medical personnel could assist you. Well, Skinclique Wellness and Aesthetic Center is an exception. That for me is a massive factor to consider. Yes, I am really impressed. Below are some photos inside the clinic.

What’s New with Skinclique?

When I interviewed Dr. Leila Saavedra, I found out that the clinic’s ultimate goal for clients is fairness that goes skin deep. She wants wellness and aesthetic services that average Filipinos can afford — without compromising quality. From an affordable consultation, facial and body fit/slender treatments, skin rejuvenation, IPL hair removal, to different types of drips to chose, all services are significantly lower in prices compared the other clinics. Why waste money when you can save a lot for the same procedure?

She added that their services for those who use glutathione drip is not merely for aesthetic. She emphasized her intention to educate the clients about the health benefits of glutathione as an anti-oxidant. Most of people I know think that glutathione is just for whitening. Truth is, glutathione helps us counteract deterioration, cleanses our liver, and leaves nothing but whitening side effect. Although our body produces own glutathione, it depletes in time because of poor diet, pollution, toxins, medications, stress, trauma, aging, infections and radiation. Thus, this explains why some are looking older than their age. Dr. Saavedra knows that glutathione is one of the most important molecule that humans need to stay healthy and prevent disease. And because of that, she made sure that her clients would enjoy the health benefits of it by lowering the prices. I asked about the safety of products for infusion and they are all BFAD approved. 

 

Recommendation

 

If you are a type of person who loves to take care of your skin and body on a budget, I believe that Skinclique Wellness and Aesthetic is for you. I have seen people from far places going to Marikina just to visit the clinic. Why not? The place is really clean, cozy and Instagram worthy. Services are lower in price compared to other clinics. And lastly, the staffs are really respectful and accommodating.

My Z-Lasik Plan at Shinagawa Lasik and Aesthetics 

My first visit at Shinagawa Lasik and Aesthetics Ortigas Branch. March 9, 2017.

I am happy to announce that Shinagawa Lasik and Aesthetics will be performing Ultra Z-LASIK to me tomorrow!

To tell you a boring story, I started wearing eyeglasses at the age of 13. Because of my failing vision, I had no choice but to quit playing sports. In school, people expect I am one hella smart — when in fact wearing glasses has nothing to do with intelligence. At times I couldn’t read the visual aids, I sit on the floor near the chalkboard to see them clearly. But still, nothing beats the bonus of getting painful jokes of having four eyes from my disgusting classmates. 

There were no perfect words to describe the frustration. You wake up in the morning fumbling for your eyeglasses. You have a hot drink and your lenses get fogged up. You step out from an air-conditioned room and your lenses get moistened. Wearing sunglasses too can be dangerous and agitating since your vision is almost close to being blind. You never know if your next step will lead you to fatal accident, but you have to play it cool. Glad that contact lenses were invented. 

I look older when wearing eyeglasses obviously.

I managed to embrace the inconvenience of contact lenses for seven years. I can list all the awkward situations I faced when I needed to put an eyedropper in the middle of doing something. I got allergies and complications consequently. The bitchiest part is — the grade of my eyes soar high from 250 to 650. Impressive!

Needless to say, going under the knife may sound terrifying. Yet this could be the wisest investment you will do for yourself; if you really are exhausted with your poor eyesight. Shinagawa Lasik and Aesthetics is the world’s largest eye surgery provider that offers the latest technology in refractive corneal procedures. 

Cutting your eyes open with the most advanced procedure won’t sound bad at all.

It will only take about 10 minutes to perform for both eyes, and your vision will be restored back to 20/20! Z-Lasik has also the fastest recovery time since you can go back to work the next day! 

My journey to 20/20 vision will be blogged from the screening to surgery and post operation checkups. The screening procedure will be posted in my next writeup. And if in case you have inquiries, I would love to answer them as long as I can. You may also want to schedule an appointment since Shinagawa Lasik and Aesthetics offers a special promo for the month of March!
