As girls, we share an obsession with having perfect, pore-less, radiant skin. The things we do everything to keep our skin smooth and youthful! One of the best things about this millennial age is technology that can give laser-fast (pun intended) results that bid a final farewell to regular waxing treatments and tubs of anti-wrinkle/age spots/sagging cream. With this quest for flawless skin, we found four facilities in the metro that offer a range of laser treatments to answer your every beauty need.
The Skin Specialist
Situated in Quezon City is The Skin Specialist by Dr. Jean Marquez, FPDS. This skin clinic is bustling with clients who come in to get treatments for anything skin-related, from sweat-reducing Botox treatments to anti-aging and skin-whitening procedures. This facility also offers Diode Laser Hair Removal, which is virtually painless. It uses a machine that targets black hair and sends heat to stop hair growth. The cooling gel they apply puts you at ease and assures a comfortable and painless procedure! Make sure you haven’t had any waxing done for at least four weeks to get optimum results.

For people who are always on the go, getting any beauty treatment done is a coveted luxury! Skin 101 has a straightforward and time-efficient clinic that allows you to come in, relax, and be done in as fast as 15-20 minutes (depending on the treatment). They pretty much have everything you need on the menu and at rates that won’t hurt your budget. Revlite, a new laser procedure that can lighten skin pigmentation and minimize the appearance of pores, is also available at the facility. You can choose between RevLite Toning, which targets pores and helps reduce oiliness, and RevLite for Melasma, which works to remove most brown spots, freckles and unwanted pigment.

Wink Laser Studio
Wink Laser Studio is the brainchild of Holly Chang, who deserves a special mention just because she has the most amazing and luminous skin ever. One step inside the studio and the smell of citrus happiness wraps around you like a fresh wave. Initially established to offer hair removal services at reasonable prices, Wink has since then expanded into laser treatment technology, starting with RevLite in 2014 and now with Gentlemax Pro, a new laser system for permanent hair reduction. The best thing about it is that it’s practically pain-free! You may feel a slight sting that lasts a mere split second, almost as if it never happened. It doesn’t require a cooling gel, but instead sprays a coolant on your skin before each laser pulse. The treatment is quick and easy and can cut down the once hour-long laser procedure to a mere 20 minutes.
