Dermclinic | 3Face Treatment Review

Most often we neglect the importance of facial skin care and it really does more harm than good. I found out recently that my facial skin was starting to form Melasma which irked me and I suddenly understood the need for sunblock at ALL times - even when you cook.

Now, I honestly believe in the need to invest in facial skin care now that I am in my 40's. Perfect timing that Dermclinic provided me the chance to try their 3Face Treatment. I usually get nervous with facial treatments with 3 things: pain, time and reaction of my skin. I felt a little anxious but I so wanted to know why Dermclinic's 3Face Treatment was their bestseller.

It was Monday afternoon and the MRT station at Cubao was packed to the brim with people, I tried to keep my calm while pushing, shoving and overloading of the train was on-going. I kept telling myself that it was worth the travel. Finally alighting at MRT Ortigas station - I was feeling a sense of relief while walking towards SM Megamall. It was my first time to visit Dermclinic and gratefully it was a breeze to find, conveniently situated near the escalator, I walked in happily.

I was asked to fill out a form and after doing so, I was ushered into a dimly lit room to wash my face. Cel assisted me with putting on the half gown and headband and gave me the instructions to prep. I learned from her that facial tissue is the best way to dry your face and not with a towel which can harbor bacteria, or if possible always use separate face towel.

After cleansing my face, I was asked to lay down and she let me know that I was to undergo a deep facial cleansing prior to the actual 3Face Treatment. Super big check for me! Love the care that they put in prepping. Cel said that it was to make sure that my skin would be receptive to the treatment.

After 30 minutes, Cel asked to move to the well-lit treatment room where I would meet with Dra. Mary Ann Velasquez who would perform the 3Face Treatment.

Dra. Velasquez explained to me what would happen during the treatment and what was the purpose of each - since the 3Face Treatment is comprised of 3 different dermatological treatments in 1 session: 

  1. Microdermabrasion (Exfoliation)
  2. Collagen Renewal (Regeneration of elasticity and firmness of the skin)
  3. Skin Tightening (restores skin radiance).

I had a wonderful conversation with Dra. Mary Ann Velasquez and she happily answered my questions about beauty myths like using ice on the face to close pores - apparently it IS just a myth HAHAHA. She made me feel comfortable throughout the process and the treatment felt like a breeze (to add she is also very pretty).

Right after the treatment, I was told that I must use sunblock, protect my face with an umbrella while I am out and keep using a skin regimen to control oil which cause black and white heads. 

I was also given the Nuderm Intensive Whitening package to use:

NuDerm Intensive Whitening Package

1. Intensive Whitening Soap with Micropeel (190Php) - Exfoliates skin cells and gets rid of pigmentations as well as dark spots with continuous use.

2. Intensive Whitening Toner with Micropeel (375Php) - eliminates dirt, oil and make-up residue. Helps to achieve a lighter and glowing skin tone by controlling melanin formation.

3. Intensive Whitening Cream with Micropeel (500Php) - this helps to promote regeneration of new skin cells, lightens skin discoloration and hyperpigmentation. 

 After my story telling, here are my final thoughts on the 3Face Treatment:

What I liked
  • The Treatment rooms - I appreciated the transition of rooms. The facial cleansing room was dimly-lit but its purpose was to help you relax and it truly did. Made sense to have a well lit area for the 3Face Treatment since it black and white head extraction would be done. Both rooms were well kept, clean and smelled good. 
  • The Staff - they were very professional, courteous and friendly. I appreciated how there was no over selling of their services or products. 
  • Deep cleansing facial - totally relaxing, loved every step that was done. 
  • 3Face Treatment - The Bomb! Check out my before and after photo below (absolutely shameless and NO filter at all) where the effects were immediate - 5 days after my nose is still pore clear! The slight pain during extraction was so worth it! 
  • Time - I spent an hour and a half in the clinic (excluding the photo op and issuing of the NuDerm Intensive Whitening Package) which made me happy. This of course will vary per customer. 
  • Accessibility of branch - Dermclinic Megamall is easily accessible on the 5th floor of Building A, SM Megamall which is near the MRT Ortigas Station, perfect for commuters like me. 
What could have been better
  • Hoping they would up do their waiting area to something more Instagram-friendly. Given the social media age plus millennials it would be definitely a plus! 
Overall:

Giving a thumbs up for the treatment and overall experience. I walked away with a smile (no lies here), my 3 fears were debunked, treatment was quick, pain was bearable and I had no negative reaction towards the treatment.
