Holistic Skin Care at Luminisce

Skin care is something that I really invest in. For me, taking care of the largest organ of the body is very essential to my well-being. As I grow older, I realize that a healthy skin is way better than a skillful application of makeup. Instead of concealing blemishes and imperfections, is it not better to have a flawless canvass to begin with? Let me get this straight, I have nothing against makeup. In fact, I am starting to learn some tricks recently. I simply believe that makeup only enhances a beautiful skin and thus, taking care of my skin is a priority.

Lately, I had a chance to visit one of the rising and upscale skin care clinics here in the country which offers a holistic approach towards skin care. With the goal of catering towards the clients’ overall health through skin care renewal physical fitness and psychological well-being, Luminisce Holistic Skin Innovations has captured my interest. Let me share my experience in its clinic!

The princess in me internally squealed as soon as I laid my eyes on its golden upholstered couches. The chandelier, wallpaper, and other interior designs also scream elegance.

It has a relaxing atmosphere with its spacious rooms, waiting area, and calming background music.

I was then handed an information sheet which I filled up with a very serious face. Time to be honest about my skin problems!

Consultation

After I accomplished the form, I was ushered to a room where I had my consultation with Dr. Kaycee. She asked what my skin concerns are and I did mention a lot. Some of them are my dark circles, fine lines in the eye area, and moles on my face.

Dr. Kaycee was very patient as she listened to me sharing my horrific skin problems. She then recommended appropriate treatments which could address those issues I am having with. Dr. Kaycee explained what would happen in each procedure and was accommodating to my never ending questions and clarifications.

I am now excited to share the three treatments I had that day!

My Treatments

Before anything else, here is a selfie before I had my treatments!

First, I had the Elixir by Luminisce. My aesthetician, Myca, introduced herself and explained what the procedure would be like. Basically, Elixir by Luminisce is a safe, non-surgical, and risk-free wrinkle-relaxing treatment. It is a growing favorite method of relieving muscle tensions and removing deep facial expression lines in just few sessions!

To start, Myca removed my makeup and cleaned my entire face. Then she gave me a facial massage.

After which, she had two vials of snake venom spread all over my face and a mask on top of my problem areas – under eye and forehead.

Vitamin C Infusion

To target my under eye area, Dr Kaycee suggested to infuse vitamin C in my skin. Vitamin C is known for its whitening and antioxidant properties, so I was one happy kid when this treatment was recommended to me.

Ruvy Laser

This treatment was recommended by Dr. Kaycee to address my problem with my moles. It may not be so visible in photos, but I do have several moles all over my face and I don’t like it. Thus, Ruvy laser will help by burning the moles. They will scab and after a few days, will peel off by themselves. Dr. Kaycee informed me that it takes more than one session to fully achieve what I wanted.

To start, topical anesthesia was applied to those big moles.

Getting ready for my laser treatment!

Dr. Kaycee herself made the procedure. The topical cream helped, but some parts were still a bit painful. The burning smell was there, but I know that it wasn’t my skin that was burning. I think it was just the natural smell of laser.

After all the treatments, Myca applied Luminisce matte sunblock to my face and I automatically fell in love with it!

After Luminisce

Thanks to all the treatments I had from Luminisce, my face looks and feels fresher, brighter, and more youthful. I did have some scabs due to the laser treatment and it took a few days before it totally healed. I was so amazed when those dark things started to fall off!

I had two moles under my right eye, but as you can see, only one is now visible. The other moles also lightened as well!

Verdict

Luminisce Holistic Skin Innovations lives up to its name and promise. I am impressed on how it delivers to its promise of having healthy skin. What’s more, the cost of each treatments is reasonable! Nice, knowledgeable, and skilled skin experts are led by the skin doctor herself, so I know I am in good hands. I am happy to be a Luminisce baby! Ah, I can’t wait for my next visit and have skin as healthy as Dr. Kaycee’s. I must start skinvesting now!
