My boyfriend Miguel has always said that he liked me with little to no makeup but I didn’t like my face with all the blemishes on my skin. I recently discovered this high-end Korean skincare clinic whose 10 Step Korean Facial can give you and me the kind of confidence we need to leave the house without any make-up on!
With cutting edge technology, O2 Skin Lab integrates the use of machines with facial service to increase skin penetration from 10% to 60%. The Signature Korean Facial (PHP 2,800) by O2 Skin Lab is a 110-minute treatment that involves 10 steps to cleanse, hydrate and whiten the skin effectively.
The Korean skincare clinic was established in 2006 but recently opened to the Filipino market in 2015. Previously in McKinley, O2 Skin Lab moved to High Street BGC just this May 2019. Check out their mesotherpay package as well!
Skin Age Test
My Skin Age is 30! My elasticity was so low due to low moisture. I can’t believe that my hydration is low considering I put toner every night. I also have huge pores on the forehead and some wrinkles and freckles because of sun damage.
10 Step Korean Facial (110 mins)
The remedy was to do the 10 Step Korean Facial which lasted for about 2 hours. After the treatment, I liked how my hair isn’t all stiff and my face isn’t sticky after. I can put makeup on. My skin cleared up.
1. Deep Cleansing.
Removal of make-up and dirt with Cleansing Milk and Cleansing Gel.
Deep-seated dirt is scraped off with a vibrating chisel.
3. Loosen Pores.
Using a special gel, a flat device emitting Ultrasonic Heat is made to go around the whole face. This helps open and soften the pores to prepare it for extract.
Pricking of Whiteheads, Blackheads and Pimples.
5. Skin Tightening.
A bipolar Radio-frequency Machine is used to promote skin tightening by stimulating collagen synthesis, thus eventually making your skin feel supple.
This is done through a relaxing massage on the face, decollete and arms using special Korean massage oil for 10-15 minutes. The oils are wiped off with hot towels.
Yellow Pumpkin Cream Mask is applied for 10 mins to further supplement the skin’s healthy grow. It smelled so yummy that I wanted to lick it off!
8. Antioxidant Infusion.
Using another machine, a special Korean Vitamin C Serum is infused into the face to promote skin whitening and slow down the aging process.
9. Calming and Anti-Aging.
After a layer of gauze, a Cold Collagen Mask is applied and left to harden for 10-15 minutes to reduce redness from the previous extraction. Legs are massaged while waiting for the mask to harden.
10. Moisturizer and Sun Protection.
Vitamin C Cream is applied to moisturize the face. Sunblock optional.
