Last March 20, Dermcare opened its latest branch at SMDC Light Residences Mall. It was my first time to go to the newly opened SM mall and was surprised how near it is to my current location. It was Dermcare’s grand opening when I went, so I had the chance to witness the ceremony.
Dermcare has been in the skin business for more than 20 years and has been trusted for its professional, effective and affordable products and services. It has also pioneered the skin whitening industry in the Philippines and its promise of whiter and blemished-free skin in just five days has been well fulfilled throughout the years.

I later found out that Dermcare comes in two versions – Dermcare Luxe and Dermcare Professional. Dermcare Professional is for affordable hair and skin services, while Dermcare Luxe caters luxurious patrons. The branch in SMDC Light Mall is Dermcare Professional Skin, Hair, and Spa. It is proud to have a wide range of services – facial treatments (whitening, anti-aging, and pimple control), body treatments (waxing, scrub, and spa), hair treatments (hair rebonding, perm, color, etc). Basically, it is a one-stop pamper haven from hair, body, and skin!
Facial at Dermcare SMDC Light Mall
After I decided to try its services for the first time, I opted to have a facial with diamond peel. It has been a while since the last time I had my facial treatment. My 2015 started with full of travels here and there and I know my face has accumulated much dirt in recent weeks. Thus, a royal pampering is needed.
The branch is very feminine with its green and purple theme. Its upholstered couches near the reception exudes elegance catered for customer comfort and satisfaction of Dermcare.
When it was my turn to have my facial service, I was brought to a corner where lockers were located. How convenient! Not all clinics have these for security purposes. Each locker is small though. My average-size bag barely fitted. Still better than nothing though!
To start, my assigned aesthetician ushered me to the clinic’s beauty sink. Hand soap and facial wash were available in the counter and there were fresh and clean towels on the side. She told me to wash and clean my face before we started with the facial. I was a bit surprised. It has been fairly recently since I started receiving facial treatments, but all of my previous visits in various clinic’s had staff applying cleanser and make-up remover on me.
Although a bit taken aback, I started washing my face with soap and water. I requested for a headband so my hair won’t get in the way while I cleaned my face.
With cleaned and makeup-free face, I was requested to lie down on one of the clinic’s beds. The beds were white and clean, but due to limited space, they were all next to each other. There was a little privacy during the treatment as only a thin veil of curtain separated each bed. For some exclusivity and privacy, one can opt to have treatments in special rooms at Dermcare SMDC.

The aesthetician applied cream all over my face and started the steam. A facial massage came next. Then, the pricking. I knew that my face is dirty. I felt satisfied when she showed me a towel with all my skin dirt! Next came the laser followed by a hot hammer. I never had a hot hammer before and this was something new to me. Diamond peel and suction came next. The facial ended with a cold hammer treatment. Through it all, my beauty therapist had been attentive and courteous to all my needs.
To top everything off, a healthy whitening mask was applied to my face and was left there for 20 minutes. When it was wiped off, she gently massaged my back and shoulders. It was a complete service!
I am happy to be one of the first to try Dermcare SMDC Light Mall services. There is something nice to know that I was the one to first use the bed, tools, and machines. How cool was that? Since I am one of the first ten to visit and try one of the treatments of Dermcare Professional SMDC, I even received a free gift.
I had a relaxing facial treatment at the newly opened Dermcare SMDC Light Mall. Even though there are some areas for improvement, I recommend this skin clinic for those who are looking for quality and affordable services. The accessible location also adds to its plus points. Overall, it was such a nice experience at Dermcare.
