I have always admired Koreans’ skin. They are poreless, youthful, and undoubtedly flawless! 🙂
It is no wonder that most of the skincare products I use are made from their country. And Korean skin clinics and salons have already established themselves as a credible skincare and beauty provider.
That is why I was soooo stoked when I was invited to try O2 Korean Facial Therapy! 😀
Their signature facial is a therapeutic treatment formulated to deeply cleanse, rejuvenate and hydrate leaving you a more radiant and revitalized skin.
This 90 minutes facial therapy comes with a relaxing and firming face and shoulder massage which reinvigorates the skin and relieves stress.
Perfect for people who want to be refreshed and relaxed at the same time, just like me!
This should be exciting because the last facial treatment I had was almost 7 years ago! Haha 😛 I was just so scared that these treatments will cause more damage than good! But my braveheart and beauty instinct told me that this is something I shouldn’t miss!
So here are the things you should expect when you have your O2 Korean Facial Therapy:
1st Step: Cleanse.
Cleansing the face with their Cleansing Milk and Cleansing Gel. This step will involve removal of makeup (if patient has any on) and dirt from the environment.
2nd Step: Scrubber.
Using a machine, they will scrub off deep seated dirt for a more thorough cleansing.
3rd Step: Ultrasonic.
Using a special gel, a flat device emitting heat is made to go around the whole face. This helps open and soften the pores to prepare it for extraction.
I was so used with overhead steam in opening pores to allow impurities’ extraction. so this was new to me. Or am I too outdated already after my 7-year hiatus from facial treatments?
Nevertheless, I was advised that the ultrasonic machine is more upscale and healthier for the skin!
4th Step: Extraction/Pricking of Whiteheads, Blackheads, Pimples.
Now, this is the one I was dreading! As I made my way to the clinic, I was so oblivious that this is part of what’s going to happen to me that day!
I mean, I had facials before but I was only thinking that today’s treatment was more of like a cream-spreading activity only, and no pricking!
I was a bit anxious because a friend actually had a bad experience with one skin salon, and I don’t want my skin to have accidental dents like she had!
Surprisingly, they weren’t that painful! And I didn’t shed a tear! My facial therapist was really good, and she’s very careful and strategizes effectively to ease the pain whenever she attempts to stick the needle!
5th Step: Destressing.
This is done through a relaxing face, shoulder and back massage using their special Korean massage oil for 10-15 minutes.
I know, this is a skin care salon, but you have to give them additional brownie points for giving a rejuvenating massage! As in, super narelax talaga ako!
I know I was drifting to sleep already!
6th Step: Antioxidant Infusion.
Using another machine, they infused a high-end Vitamin C from Korea which helps lighten the skin as well as slow down the aging process. In this treatment, you will feel a mild stinging sensation, especially in the bony areas. This is the machine infusing the Vitamin C inside your skin.
I felt the tinge and electrifying sensation, but nothing to worry! It was too mild, you’ll only feel a tickle!
7th Step: Calming and Anti aging.
Cold Collagen mask is applied and left on the face for 10-15 minutes. This is another anti-aging procedure and the cool sensation of the mask will help reduce the redness from the extraction done prior.
I know, I look like a mummy! Haha 😀 But as claustrophobic it may seem, it is my favorite part! I can really feel the rich mask seeping down my skin to make it look healthier and more radiant!
8th Step: Removal of mask and application of Moisturizer and Sun protection Korean creams.
This procedure settled everything, and I was happy they already put sunblock, because I will be going to another event after.
A nice selfie with Dr. Cherry Ann Co, the Resident Dermatologist sealed this great deal! I even had the most opportune moment to consult her about my skin dilemmas! Thank you so much for being gracious and patient with my questions! 😀
I’ve been trying their Cleansing Milk, Moisturizing Toner and Sunblock for almost a month now! 🙂 And my skin feels more youthful everyday! 😀
This beautiful change is a kickstart into my journey of achieving a smoother, healthier and more radiant skin!
I will definitely come back for my next session! 🙂 Can you believe that this amazing treatment only costs P1,200? It’s super sulit, and totally worth it! No need for you to fly to Korea just to experience Korean skin care! 🙂
