My First Facial at DERMCARE Spa

by - December 20, 2011

Luxurious Ambiance. Luxurious Pampering.

Before, I was using nose strips to remove those irritating blackheads.  But then, I got interested on facials.  Actually, facial is a great way to take care of our skin.

This was my first time to try a facial treatment.  I did not know that it could be that painful!  Well, at least for a first timer.

I tried DERMCARE at SM North Edsa The Block.  I really love the interior design.  It brings the feeling of royalty as they say.


They don't do just face or skin treatments.  They also do body and hair andthey even sell skin care products.

They also have nice rooms even though it's not that spacious.  One room can accommodate 2 persons.

So, here's my facial experience.  I'm embarrassed to say that I cried most of the time because the pricking really hurt.

I tried the Facial with seaweed mask for 400 php as recommended by the staff, since my goal was to unclog my pores.

First, they asked me to wash my face.  They applied a cream then used a steamer to open up the pores and soften the skin.  They also used a "sucking" thing on my face.  It felt kinda nice. HAHA!

Then, the pricking started.  I really did not expect that.  I realized how silly I looked, because I was really crying like hell.  My tears just fell and the staff was wiping it.  Crazy! 

The next picture you'll see here is kinda disgusting.  But hey, I really want to show you how effective facial is in terms of removing the dirt on your face.

Eewness.

Its normal to have redness especially on the nose, so don't worry.  They applied a toner after.  

Laser time!

Lastly, the seaweed mask is applied (its cold, love it!) and I got a quick massage. :)

Annyeonghaseyo! 

After they removed the mask, it really felt good.  My skin felt so clean and refreshed.  I could really see the difference on my face.  

I'd like to go back for another round, but the pricking still scares me, so I'm having second thoughts. 

You can check out their services, products and other branches in their official site and FB page.  Enjoy!  



your sweetest drug,

  2. Tnx for your post! You convinced me to go to dermcare for my first ever facial treatment. I went there last Monday (farmers plaza branch), and availed of their diamond peel package (promo- 500 with facial) plus seaweed mask treatment. All in all, i spent 650 pesos. You were right, the pricking was unbelievable ouchie! Lalo na sa nose and chin area, dun talaga naluha ako to the max! Haha, but the attendant said that was normal, and it was worth it! I will definitely go back there again for my second rendezvous with the pricking equipment! Hahaha! Tnx again! :D

    2. Hello!! Sorry, I've never tried their acne treatments and diamond peel. This one's only a facial treatment plus seaweed mask. I suggest you go for one session first especially if it's your first time to have such treatments to be sure. Better if you talk to them so they would have an idea what's the best service for your skin. :)

  9. Para po sa mga nagbabalak mag pafacial basahin nyo po.
    Nagpafacial ako dito and anlaki ng pagsisisi ko. Sa mega clinic kasi ako nagpapaderma pero natry ko lang ung dermcare kasi masyadong mahal ang facial sa megaclinic.
    Pag tapos ng facial treatment ko dito sa dermcare nag infect ung mga Pinrick nila tapos nangitim pa ung spots. Di tulad nung sa megaclinic 3 days lang matatanggal na ang spots.
    Hindi po siyabrecommended.

  14. This is so sad guys, I always had my facial cleaning w seaweed mask in SM City Cebu, and ang sad part ditoo, 750 yung pinapabayad sa akin, then my a friend of my sister said na 450 lang naman yung may kasama ng Pricking sa spores. Baka sguro inaako nila ang pera. Sobrang galit akoo. Kaya sa ayala nlng ako magpapafacial pero certified Dermcare ako

    1. Hi! After this I think I tried Flawless - http://chixylove.blogspot.com/2012/05/facial-at-flawless.html

      Hindi po ako nagpapa-facial regularly. I guess it's up to you rin naman if mas nahihiyang ung skin mo sa treatments or keri pa ng skincare products lang. :)
