The Spa formally opened its very own aesthetic center, Skin Dermatology & Laser Center, sometime last July 2010… so there’s now a lot more serious beautification treatments available.
Skin Dermatology & Laser Center is located inside The Spa’s flagship branch on Bonifacio High Street. The interiors are all white and clean — very modern and minimalistic. It’s quite comfortable lounging at the waiting area while they get ready for your treatment.
I was early by about an hour for my 3pm appointment. I came straight from Manila Peninsula after the Downy Passion and Attraction launch which ended sooner than I expected. Since I was in killer heels, walking around BHS to pass the time was out of the question. Thus I decided to proceed straight to Skin, where I read magazines and sipped a nice cup of hot ginger tea (my favorite!) while waiting. I was there for a session of Diode Laser Hair Reduction (P4,000 for the underarms).
Around 10 minutes before 3pm, I was ushered into a treatment room and given a robe to change into. Dr. Leynes came in and introduced herself as the one who would be performing the Diode Laser Hair Reduction. She handed me a pair of goggles and told me to keep my eyes closed even while wearing them to ensure that the lasers won’t damage my eyesight.
