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.

GET THE SAME RESULT OF PROFESSIONAL TEETH BLEACHING USING WHITER SMILE

They say the best way to hide the pain is by smiling. Smiling on purpose changes our brain chemistry to produce endorphins. It has the power to release stress, pacify tantrums, bring positive vibes, and make someone attractive.

Whether it is an expression of joy, appreciation, satisfaction, amusement, or whatnot. It is indispensable in daily existence of humans — something that is of worth taking care.

But not everyone is blessed to have pearly white teeth to flash. The criminal is not solely poor oral hygiene. Just to name a few, it can be also caused by genetics, aging, beverages, food, smoking, medication, or trauma.

So how can we achieve that coveted teeth that celebrities are sporting? Initially, by using a whitening toothpaste. But little did you know that using it will not really change the natural color of your teeth? Instead, it will just slightly remove the surface stains; creating an optical illusion that your teeth have less yellow hue. A truthful waste of money.

If your goal is to have an optimum result, that’s not what you want to happen. It will disappoint you like your long-time crush. Hence, the idea of teeth bleaching is the perfect resort.

But are you willing to spare 20-30K for it? I presume it will be a cold-hearted NO. It is bloody expensive for practical people.

 

Home Teeth Whitening Kit

Processed with VSCO with c3 preset

Why burn a great cash when you can have the same professional result using a home teeth whitening kit? This new technology uses a Carbamide Peroxide Gel on a moldable teeth tray in conjunction with a teeth whitening LED light.

By doing a research and asking my dentist friend, I have validated that Carbamide Peroxide is the safest gel to use at home. Some gels can cause tooth sensitivity and irritation on the soft tissue of the mouth — like Hydrogen Peroxide. In which, only professional dentists are allowed to use.

Not so fast because looking for a reputable store of home teeth whitening kit is not easy; especially online. My friend advised me to order a kit from US and simply pay the shipping fee. Too toxic and pricey I must say.

As a result, I entrusted my stalking skills to look for a decent online store in the country. My eyes are on the feedback of customers for it is the best evidence. Then I found the Instagram account of @whitersmileph. Reading the happy customers’ testimonies wanted me to join the bandwagon. Their product is also made in the USA which I preferred the most.

 

The Product

42924095-8828-4E1B-BE41-3F97574510EE

Upon receiving the kit, I noticed the packaging is simple yet attractive. It contains:

1. Teeth whitening LED light with batteries
2. A pair of moldable teeth tray
3. Two 44% Carbamide Peroxide Gel (10ml each)
4. Shade guide
5. User manual

There are four easy steps on how to use the product. First, mould the thermoplastic mouth trays by submerging it on a boiling water and placing it on teeth. Second, trim the formed mouth trays to avoid gel contact with the gums. Third, fill a small bead of gel per tooth. And lastly, turn the LED light and hold it close to teeth as possible.

 

My Experience

IMG_1168

To be honest, it was a fun experience using the home teeth whitening kit. It was very convenient. Although for a minute or two, I felt anxious with the smell of the gel; so as to the temptation of swallowing my saliva filling my mouth. Nevermind.

I managed to stay still for twenty minutes. Then I brushed my teeth and evaluated the result. I didn’t expect too much since it was my first time to do it. But my teeth have become one shade whiter without suffering from tooth sensitivity! Furthermore, it doesn’t fade away quickly like whitening toothpastes. It indeed changed the color of my teeth in a professional level. Impressive.

 

Recommendations

Taking photos of ourselves have become the mainstream. We buy posh outfits, style our hair, wear cosmetics on the face, etc. Yet no matter how good we look, it will be a turn off to see our teeth in dreaded yellow hue. Certainly, the trick of photo editor app will just remain good in virtual extent.

Having these things said, home teeth whitening kit from Whiter Smile is the most convenient, effective, and affordable way to whiten our teeth. It saves our time to schedule an appointment with a dentist for the procedure and maintenance. Yet, the result is comparable to professional teeth bleaching without hurting the pocket. If I may say, this is just a little investment we owe to ourselves.

Smile when you still have the teeth. It can make all the difference in the world.
